Re: 71 Halloween Pumpkin Build Unflared

Beautiful. All of your choices look good, nice that the body is all done. That's one of my favorite Datsun colors.

Re: Seeking wisdom re: L20B or Z22/U67

I had the LZ 2.2 fin the first iteration of my 510, they don't rev high but lots of torque.

Re: Another 72 510

Super Surgeon. Really nice work. That Wurth product is interesting, I had never heard of it.

Try bringatrailer.com, I have never seen that vintage for sale there, but it might be worth a try.
