Re: Insane wind storm in White Rock

Great photos! This storm was a real doozy. The anemometer on my roof not far from Esquimalt Harbour recorded a peak wind of 46 knots from the southwest this afternoon. The official observation a the entrance to the harbour (WPF) peaked at ~51 knots. That is by far the highest I have ever seen there....

Re: butters68 build

That's great! I hope my wife appreciates my 510 like that some day. Perhaps when I finally get it off the jack stands and on the road. It has been a garage ornament for almost five years now. I've made lots of progress, but it has been hard to find the time lately with kid and other family obligatio...

Re: butters68 build

I saw Butters heading northeast on Sooke rd near Goldstream yesterday. What a great looking car. Would have waved and given the thumb's up, but I was going in the opposite direction and was trying to point the 510 out to my wife and then it was too late. Only my second 510 sighting this year around ...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Ha ha, yes Keith, I saw those. I have my heart set on 13" wheels and tires though. What I want is your spare Nissan Comp transmission, but I don't have that kind of cash!

Re: 2.3L of fun

Wow, are they ever responsive! I emailed them regarding availability and Robert got back to me within 15 minutes! Sadly, his response was "Unfortunately we will not be getting any of the 13" tires this season :( We have had a lot of demand for them and we will likely get them in for next year. Apolo...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Thanks for the info on these tires. I'm leaning toward ordering a set of the 185/60 R13. For the record it is http://www.wheelwiz.ca Did you have to special order yours? If so, what was the wait time? I'm just curious. My car has been on jack stands for over four years so obviously I'm the patient t...

The front suspension and steering parts are slowly going in as I find the time here and there. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4762/38464630670_d3e78f1733_c.jpg Steering box with Datsport Steering box brace. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4617/38464629560_40b605fa45_c.jpg https://farm5.staticflickr.c...

Re: MOMO Vega's 14" x 6"

Wow, those are cool. Thanks for posting those. I've never seen them before and yes, they would look amazing on a 510. Wish I could justify the cost for my build.
