Re: Datsun Restomods CV showing at Byron's - Nov 25th 1-5 PM

Did I miss the part where there was a price? Or do you have a ballpark estimate? *EDIT* I didn't read far enough back on the other thread. :roll:
Are You going to be offering ones like the original one you made or just the ones with bolt on flanges on both ends?

Thanks,
Brock

Re: 1973 Datsun 510 SR20DET Targa Rally Car

That's not a lot of space. Basically a single car garage. I'm sure that filled up quickly. Glad to hear you had no issues at the border. I can't wait to see how the new build goes.

Good to hear. That's two guys who like them. They are high on my list now.

:roll: Wow, I completely missed the second question.
I concur with MikeY. The passenger side mirror was an option and is a mirror image of the drivers mirror. (I like puns too)

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Any TC rod and lower control arm can be made to work. Some aren't a gimmy though. Sam used stock TC rods, he cut two inches out, then sleeved them and welded them back together. He wanted mega caster haha. The only sway bar I know that works is the old DGR fab bar, the datsport might but I'm not su...

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

Even more awesome! I'm not really into super low, but the fact that you can is always a plus.
Is there a estimated timetable for the LCAs and TC rods?
Can this work with stock LCAs and TC rods and then be changed over later?
If not going low would a standard front sump swaybar work?

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

This is so awesome. I can't express how much I appreciate the amount of work you guys have done to help out the 510 community. I've already started saving up to buy one of these. Question: I looked on the website. Is there going to be aan option where I can just click and get everything necessary in...

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

I really appreciate all of the time and energy you guy are investing in upgrading our favorite vehicle. I have had so many ideas and they have changed and morphed over the last 30 some years of 510 ownership. Some things I wanted to do in my 30s and 40s I wouldn't even consider now. So much more is ...

Re: Narrowing rear control arms

Feel free to bitch slap me if you like, but if you're going to go to all the trouble of making a completely new control arm, why not make it so that you can use a bolt on hub like on many newer cars? This would effectively shorten the bearing area giving you more room for a longer shaft. My thought...

Re: Best fitting fender flares

Refresh60, not a cheap option, but I think reproductions are available.
