Re: Can Anyone Identify this SSS Grille, Year, US/Japan/Europe?

That is a 1971-2 Datsun Bluebird grill-- they make several versions (with different paint variations depending on the trim and engine spec). Base and GL version (no paint on the center section): https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4370/36591873165_a168ee55f4_c.jpg 1800SSS Version: https://c1.staticflickr....

Re: FutoFab has 2d Quarter Panels

Dave,

What is your opinion of the corrected supersonic line-- can you post photos of what it looks like now? (it looks like this is an old photo with the affected area circled?)

Re: Bill Money has passed :(

Bill was a fantastic resource, and always happy to help us with unobtainium parts south of the border! Always loved his "can-do" attitude...

RIP Bill, you were a great one!

Re: Aftermarket Engine Mounts - CRAP

OEM Nissan mounts are still available from Nissan for the 510. Get the correct ones and forget it!

Nissan part number 11220-A3500

Re: Billet exterior c-Pillar vents in the works

Like you said, an insanely complicated part to make (so many subtle curves that you don't notice on first glance!)

Beautiful work-- I would echo everyone's comments for a 68-9 style that is mounted from the rear.

Those vents are NOT a 510 part, but a 1200 Sunny Coupe side vent:

Re: Safari 5000 movie @ datsun510.com

This is a major win for us in the 510 community! "5000km to Glory" has amazing footage and is well worth the time to download and view.

Thank you ever so much Derek for making this happen!

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

The wiring on my project is going to be a bit different than standard 510s as I added a three-position pull switch, and the OEM wiper delay module found in a 620/720 pickup.

I'll make a simple schematic of what I did next time I am behind the dash. It was not too hard to figure out.

Re: has anyone ever seen this before?

I have never noticed that on a Bluebird before (or a North American 510), but Australian built 510s have the VIN stamped on the strut tower like this:

Re: Alternative Modern Wiper Motor Conversions

https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3846/32791155964_9ac6e2004e_z.jpg I would take a good look at a Mid-90s Acura Itegra wiper motor-- they bolt up to the stock 510 linkage (without modification) and the bolt spacing is correct for the mounting plate. I had to do two small relief cuts on the mounting pla...
