Re: Father and Son 510 Builds

Fantastic job on the headliner! Looks like an outside-in candy wrapper. If that make any sense.

Re: moar good videos :P

I remember watching La Mans with my uncle Doug when I was a kid 5 or 6 yrs old. The imagery and sound made a strong impression, but I couldn't remember the name, so it was lost as a memory. About 10 years ago I was flipping through the channels and saw an old Steve McQueen movies was coming on, and ...

Can you elaborate on these projects? If you're not into typing much, around here a picture is worth 1607 words last time I checked the exchange rate.

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Just checked the mailbox and the bushings are here. I've run out of excuses.

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Not yet Jeff, it's all still sitting in a box on my work bench. Just waiting on the bushings. Literally haven't made it out to the mail box to see if they're here. Been one hell of a week with no end in sight. It's likely Troy will do most of it as my confidence with the wrenches is waining. I want ...

Re: I'm old but new here

Welcome to the Realm Steven. Plenty of old Datsun guys here with far more interest in information content than drama BS. Thanks for all your effort putting Candy together, I hope it lasts another ten years.

Re: New Member

Welcome DatsunDoc That's a beautiful 4 four you got there. You are right a dash pad in "good condition" is a rear find. They do make a nice replacement skin to recover the old one. It is thicker than the original material, and done right it looks every sharp. If anything it would be a good...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Ron, you planning on doing the Manteca show and swap meet this year? You can always caravan with Dean Sherman and myself! Are you talking about the one in March? Rolling up together would be a blast. I'm converting my 510 to rack & pinion in a few days, so that might be cutting it a bit close. ...

Re: Who are you ? ROLE CALL

Name: Uwe Local: Currently: Western, MA. (only been here 1 year) we can't stand it. We're from the west. Springfield, Longmeadow maybe? My wife's family is from there. And yes, it's either a humid, or cold ass pit. Northampton is sort of cool in a quaint New England kind of way. I'm sure if you had...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Took a while, but I got all the bits and pieces for the steering conversion. Just waiting for some bushings to come in. Turns out a manual 1985 MR2 rack is hard to source. There are a bunch of MR2 folks converting from power assist to manual for better direct feedback. Those damn Toyota guys need to...

Re: How To Plan A Project

If there were anything I would add to this it is determination. It's a huge factor in success. The first thing is give yourself permission to make mistakes. If you expect nothing but perfection you're setting yourself up for failure. Often when a build hits it's first serious bump, I've seen even th...
