hi all,

its been a while since i last posted here. that time we just had the car and no idea on how to operate it. lemme introduce myself and my car.

im Gabe and i live here in the Philippines. im a proud owner of a 1984 c32 nissan laurel (my apologies for '87 year bagde on the 1st post). we inherited it from my father-in-law who died February of this year. we decided keep the car since it one of his priced possession. it has a LD28 engine and the rest i dont know, but im interested in bring this car back closest to life as possible. here are the photos:

Another fellow had similar problem a few months back. Al (our land lord and very familiar w/the LD engine) suggested it might be the alternator diodes if nothing else turns up bad.

one of the problems i have is the dashboard which is in bad condition. none of the gauge on the instrument panel is working. a/c is problematic and water is pouring inside from the a/c evaporator. there are really many things to do

finally we had the body work finished and the paint job done. still having trouble of sourcing parts for the interior (if you knew of someone breaking up their laurel lemme know) and some engine problems. since i know im on the right website to inquire just about everything for my car's engine i know i can bring back this car's old glory. here's the latest picture. (pretty on the outside only, so sad)
