Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

Blueridge hooked up some new, longer, stronger, lugs and we were able to add spacers and get my rim pretty flush to the lip. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v608/djfootball/PL510%20Wagon/460EAB96-A96E-4784-8FF3-273E3B4678D3-1675-0000004431713A86_zps32c744e6.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

... . . last night i returned to the Datsun Garage and did some filling on the wagon's engine bay. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v608/djfootball/PL510%20Wagon/IMG_07671_zpse8ba9051.jpg and as we were waiting for the filler to dry, we figured out why the wagon was sitting so high. Problem: the wa...

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

Just got a text "Bring the Rota's over" so i'm assuming that we're going to get to the bottom of this. Standby. As an aside, when I was new to 510s (and had that wagon pictured), I thought the Bluebirds list was the bomb, but my learning curve was still steep as I didn't know diddly-doo. ...

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

Did you remove any leafs on that build? Did you do anything to the leafs or did you just add a 2" block?

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

You might need a veeeery slight roll on the rear. Might even get away with just bending the "lip" of the fender up. I'm running 15x7 +11 with 175/60/15 and I rub on the big bumps without doing anything to my fenders. With smaller tires you might be ok. Kyushakai.. This is what my rear whe...

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

So blueridgeracing has been hooking it up lately teaching me how to fill, epoxy and prime. I'm pretty satisfied with the work that has been done here. I've been slaving away day after day trying to get the truck bed liner out of the engine bay and it's just been a ton of work. Today i'm back in the ...

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

With 50 series tires I have a TON of room with 3" lowering blocks. No rolling needed. I will have create a tunnel for my differential though.

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

The wagon is on it's way to the paint booth. I spent some time sand blasting the nooks and cracks in the engine bay and it's ready for rust inhibitor and it's first coat of epoxy primer. Filler will come next and then sand sand sand, fill and sand some more. Cant's wait to see the top coat finished....

Re: Jack-o'-lantern 510 Wagon

So.. just brainstorming out loud a bit. I've done some measurements and it seems like a set of 15x7s with 0 offset will fit in the rear with the right tire choice and a little fender rolling. Iv'e seen some people put +20 offsets in the rear with no problems and I've seen some 0 offsets that have wo...
