Re: Post a pic of your Dime.

It's been back on the road for a week now, after sitting for 12 years and about 2 years of working on it. Luckily I haven't ran into any big issues so far, just a thing or two that two minutes of time fixed. Still working out some bugs, but I have enjoyed it so far. L16 is gutless, and the huge (hei...

Re: Post a pic of your Dime.

Love those rims! Good choice Thanks! I like them a lot, hence why I got them. I was going to get 15" but these popped up and I had to have them. Never thought I'd have 16". Those are nice rims, I have a set of those, and they are actually quite light, for a 15" rim. They're not bad. Can't say they'...

Re: Reintroduction

Welcome! Looks clean! Cool to have another somewhat local 510 guy. It's us younger enthusiasts that'll keep them on the road. I have a set of 13x7 American Racing Libres that'll look good on there if you're interested.

Re: 72 2 Door 510 Restoration-25 years in the making

One nice thing about WI is our gun rights. I went to a local gun shop and walked out $1,300 lighter with my Colt M-4 in hand. Handguns have a 48 hour wait. And, I can make any kind of ammo til my heart's content (another winter hobby). I can also shoot all I want on my own property, I don't have to...

Re: 72 2 Door 510 Restoration-25 years in the making

Ouch! I thought getting a cupped wire wheel to the foot while wearing my OSHA approved safety sandals hurt. My foot is fine now but my sandal has a big gash in it, yet I still find myself wearing my sandals whenever I'm working on the car. My tan line proves it! :lol: Hope you recover soon. I have a...

Re: rims

Kumho and Toyo make some tires for the 13's but they are $180.00 each and are not good for regular everyday use :( They both make 175/70 and 185/70 in a 50,000+ mile tire. There's other cheaper brands out there too. 13" tires are limited but are available. Racing tires are available all day for a p...

Re: 72 2 Door 510 Restoration-25 years in the making

You're coming along! I wish I had a welder. Even just a $100 Harbor Freight (if you have those) wire welder would do everything I need to do. I have some rusty panels I need to replace. I need to get a new rear window seal before I can even think about fixing my back seat area and the rockers. Leaky...

You should keep it purple. Primer all the spots outside you worked on. Make it look like it's a junker, but is mechanically sound. That's kind of what I'm going for. It's a theft deterrent in itself :lol:

Re: 72 2 Door 510 Restoration-25 years in the making

And a pic of my car in it's former glory. California, 1991. The front one is an orange 71 2-door, the middle is a 71(?) 4-door, and the little guy in the back is mine. http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii94/rush0011/510/510s.png Yup! Middle car was my dad's car. It was a '72 four door with the rea...
