September update - progressing nicely

Quick update on my progress. I continue to work my way to the rear of the car along the passenger side. RockPanel_Preinstallation.jpg The last couple of weeks I addressed the rocker panel. The replacement part was actually pretty damn close, I only had to hammer down the pivot point a bit to clear t...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

... My brake lights are instant on, no delay and i have checked. I would have said the exact same thing a week ago before these new LEDs were installed. Everything worked fine and came on as expected. Whatever delay there previously was, it certainly wasn't noticeable. With a staggered install ther...

LED brake bulbs and Instagram'ing

Quick update on my 510. In the Ottawa valley we've had an insane amount of rain and overall shit weather "summer". So far I've only managed to get about 4000km on the 510. Besides that, it's running well. I was recently in BC and decided to pick up a set of Keith's (aka Bertvorgon) LED bra...

Re: B.C. BURNS

Amazing to read & hear about all of that out West. One of our stores was closed in Williams Lake. In the East, specifically Ottawa we've been getting incredible amounts of precipitation. Record breaking rainfall in April, May, and July. In mid July we already beat our annual average rainfall wit...

Re: Double or Nothing - 280z GT cruiser

You're braver than I! Glad that cars went to a good home. I have a 240z front bumper that's a good candidate for painting. Maybe a couple other odds and ends still. I would be interested in that bumper. A bit of welding (bumperette holes and make it 1-piece) and titanium-colored powder coating woul...

So true Byron! I'm stepping out into my own personal the deep end on many of these ideas & undertakings, so completing each of these mini-challenges add a lot to my overall project experience.

July update

Looking at my last post, I'm a little surprised how far I've gone since the last update. Early July I installed the passenger floor pan. I was able to get it done with a single piece which was nice. Next, the plan was to complete the TC bracket to firewall (lower engine rail), then run a chassis rai...

Re: Subaru STi R180 Option from FutoFab

By the way, any R160 VLSD from a Subaru MY2000 or newer will have an updated style VLSD that 510 stubs will bolt right in as long as you swap the buttons over into the side gears from the old Datsun R160. These VLSD can be found standard in any 2000+ Outback with cold weather package in 4.4 ratio i...

Re: WTB: Steering Box Plug

I tried to order 3/8 BSPT male breather vent (#9847K1) from McMaster-Carr online but they cancelled it saying they don't ship to Canada. :roll: I could have it shipped to US and P/U with other Datsun parts I typically fetch every 2-3 months, but for something that small it would have been nice to ge...

June update

Project 280z continues to plug along and I'm having a blast. I'm progressing nicely and becoming more confident that I'll be able to fire up & possibly drive her next spring. I had to cut away a bit more of the passenger footwell than originally planned. PassengerFootwell_Rot_1.jpg PassengerFoot...

Out for a cruise

Ah, so my carb experience isn't really any different than other 510 owners then. Thanks for the info Byron. BeausBrewery.jpg I've got to say, this is just about the best time of the year for 510 cruising and enjoying those carbs. I took my furthest drive to date in the 510 this past weekend, all the...

Re: New Member, Ontario Canada

... A lot more money than the last 510. But the markets changed lots in the past 6 years... Hey Dadzsun, actually I'm West of you in Kaladar.... Damn right the market has changed (East coast at least) - so glad I got mine about 6.5 years ago. My car was recently re-appraised at over 3x the value I ...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I like the carb set up. Honestly I'm having second thoughts about pulling the carbs. It's a unique/Frankenstein setup that somewhat miraculously works just about perfect. It's only during cold starts that I sometime lack the patience to wait for 1-2 min for warm up. This setup is not something you ...

Re: Noobie's 510 project

What in your eyes is the aesthetic problem with the wheel openings? Personal taste is subjective of course, but I love yours as is ;-) My only issue with the rear arch is how it sits lower than the front arch. When the car is lowered & level (ie: rocker panel parallel to the ground) the rear wh...
