    All my required parts are almost all sourced out, was able to find a good condition second hand OEM Nismo rear bumper and with luck it came with this [4] rear OEM Nismo S rear reinforcement brace. Not missing much from now on. Can't wait for spring.

    Here's an update on those missing levelling motors and connectors for the front directional lights.
    Last time, the headlamps I got didn't come up with these levelling motors. In Japan the March uses these and it offers the user the convenience to adjust the height of the reflectors from inside the cabin. Koito is the supplier of the headlamp assembly, but I wasn't going to buy a new set of headlamps so instead I sourced out the missing motors second hand from China.

    These are pre-owned OE Koito models and will now hold the reflector in place and seal the housing.

    Another missing piece to complete the harness that is was the different connectors used used on the different Koito made socket for the directional front bulbs. I was able to source out the missing connectors, they are made by Sumitomo and will now offer me the chance to swap the connectors and make my own harness once I start later this spring.

    "Directional" as in "aims with steering input?"

    Or just automatically self-levelling?

    No basically you can adjust the up-down direction of the reflectors from the cabin of the car vs here where we need to do it outside on the headlamps assembly itself via the adjustment screws. In Asia they have the extra knob on the console.

    So getting back to where I left off, all winter was spent gathering up the entire roster of parts required to complete the Nismo conversion on the K13. Here's little view of the size of shipment I had to get from Japan. Hopefully the weather warms up in the coming couple of weeks to test fit all the required components on the frame.

    Haha - wow!

    Good news: check next week's weather forecast. It seems like winter is FINALLY leaving us. J'aime faire la planche a neige, but enough is enough. A la prochaine, l'hiver!
