Winter is coming fast in the northeast and I got the NX2000 upgrade this summer and my stock 92 Sentra SE-R wheels will not fit. Any suggestions on a cheap solution? I have 5mm H&R spacers laying around.
Neither have I - and I'm one of those 'upper eschelons of se-r owners', having been one of the first to originally grind the calipers (at Nissan Motorsport's recommendation, BTW).Bowlcut exclaimed:
What? Id like to know why you think that. I havent had one problem from grinding.
Did you take the calipers off to grind them? Too much work! I ground mine down with a wimpy little Dremel on the car, and it only took about an hour. My neighbor, who has my old '91 has real man tools, and used his grinder. I don't know how long it took him, but I'm sure it was underan hour.Bowlcut said:After doing the calipers i could do them a lot quicker, and probaly explain it to the point where someone could understand it also. I had Jizz explaining it to me, and it took forever. I bet with a good stone and bench grinder it wouldnt take maybe 2 hours or so. I had to fit mine about 5 times, then in between each fit drive 20 mins to the shop to grind them cause the stone on the drill crapped out.
Look, there's nothing to it. Just put the 14" wheel on, and you'll see where it's contacting the caliper, then start grinding. Don't worry about going to far, there's lots of meat on the side you're grinding, and the piston & brake fluid are on the other side of the caliper. Take your time, and every so often put the wheel back on to test the fit.Eric92SE-R said:Does anyone have a before and after picture? I have acces to a real handheld stone grinder. I am considering doing this becuase you guys are promoting it so heavily.
