Re: Another 72 510

Hey Keith, great to hear from you. Great pictures thanks... that's the last of that color and mirrors, hopefully the wheels as well. Seems like I have been in the metal work process for years. I can't wait to get into the mechanical portion (way more my comfort zone). Visited my local Nissan dealer ...

Re: Another 72 510

Between scraping undercoating and fitting patches, I also want to recess the battery into the trunk.

Re: Another 72 510

Thanks Fred_LP. I saw another build talking about the patch panels offered by Wolf Steel, I too bought them a couple of years ago and was not pleased by the fitment. Here is what I did with them... cut them up and used them to re-construct the inner wheel well. https://i.imgur.com/5KbjQTf.jpg https:...

Re: Jeff's '70 2 Door

You could try an air hammer to knock the bolts loose, but as RMS already mentioned sometimes the easiest way is to cut the bolts with a hack saw burn out the rubber with a torch (do this outside) then cut the outer metal sleeve or press it out if lucky.

Re: Another 72 510

Did you prep the surface before applying the por15? It's very important if you want it to be durable. https://www.por15.com/POR-15-Metal-Prep Otherwise it will probably peel off over the years. I did see that on the instructions, I did use a metal prep but not sure if it is the same as what is reco...

Re: Another 72 510

yes as mentioned Jordan did the swap in his and mentioned the parts that fit together. The factory 510 seat belt buckle (reciever) sits low on the floor and you need one that has the right length to meet up with the seat height, the Pathfinder fits the bill nicely! This belt from the 240sx has a fai...

Re: Another 72 510

Progress has been slow but still trying to keep moving forward, patched a few small holes in the drivers side floor pan. Then started work again to finish the structural portion of the rocker where it meets the wheel well. Got that piece fabbed up an welded in place. https://i.imgur.com/rTK67AD.jpg ...

Re: WTB KA24 water pump pulley/ housing

I did the same as Tank, just took a 1" thick piece of aluminum and used the old KA housing as a template and traced it on the aluminum drilled out the center and drilled out the mounting holes. Then I used a band saw and disc sander to shape the outside. I joined BCRWD (forum for all the drift kids)...

Re: Another 72 510

This past week seems like every day after work had me using paint stripper to remove the last of the paint in the engine compartment. Lots of contours in this area, makes it challenging and time consuming to remove the old finish. Got it sealed up with epoxy primer. https://i.imgur.com/qwav0op.jpg h...

Re: Nissan Bluebird Coupe (JCCA Race Car)

KiKi look about half way down on page 4 of my build and you will see the process I took to rebuild the inner rockers. Lots of time and energy to make sure I don't make a mistake. I too spent hours looking at other builds to come up with a strategy to start the rebuild process. Yes the metal is thin ...

Re: Another 72 510

Thanks Guys! This has been a ton of work, but having completed the passenger side and getting it into primer and knowing that it is solid metal feels really good. I rolled the car out of the garage and spun it around and now have to do the same on the drivers side. Fortunately I have already rebuilt...

Re: Another 72 510

Spent the day finishing the stripping process on the rest of the 1/4, seems like it has had little in the way of repairs over the years on this side and the choice to strip was to eliminate the "rust spiders" weird rust that appears under the factory primer layer. This is visible on a lot of areas o...

Re: Nissan Bluebird Coupe (JCCA Race Car)

Yes it is scary to me too, just was there recently on my project. Best advice I can give is to cut back until you have a solid mounting surface then start the rebuild process. Not like I am any expert tho...
