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

As usual, I've been sidetracked with lots of summer projects. Happens every year, I swear, but I guess with such a short time to do anything outside, you've got to get stuff done when you can. I'm now preparing for a trip back home to SoCal on the 4th until the 22nd, then my mom will be coming back ...

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

Oh, yikes. Well, I'm heading to Ely camping & fishing for 3 days. Hopefully, the weather will be better up there, and nice here by the time I get home. I like to have the garage doors open. :)

I'm with you, Okayfine. I'd like to back out of MN all together. :D

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

Over the last couple days, I worked on smoothing out my battery delete and rust repair panel underneath (the now gone) battery tray. Some metal filler, then a bit of plastic filler, sand, rinse & repeat. I think it will come out nice. Right now, I'm concentrating on getting the engine bay worked...

Re: 280ZX Strut Question.

Fantastic! That points me in the right direction for the research. I wasn't aware of the Maxima fit, so that opens up some options, as well.

Thanks guys.

280ZX Strut Question.

I'm not sure if I should post this here or in classifieds (since I haven't decided to buy yet), but can someone tell me what I can expect to pay for a 280zx strut setup for my 510? I've looked on eBay, etc, but it's not really clear since I haven't found a listing that says what's included. Not only...

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

I thought it was kind of strange that there'd just be an open hole there inviting debris inside. I don't have the piece, so I'll have to see what I can find.

Thanks guys!

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

I took the transmission out today. I didn't know what type it was, but after a bunch of reading, it looks like the stock one. Is there supposed to be a plug or fitting or something in that pinky sized hole on top of the tail piece? http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii94/rush0011/510/IMG_4621.jpg

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

Wow! That's really interesting! I never even considered the fact that someone wouldn't be let in to show their car. Since my car will be a driver and not a show car, the only reason I'd show it is because its unusual. It'd be a bummer to be turned away for the very reason I'd want to show it. My old...

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

I like American muscle, too, but you're right, they tend to be very "me too, me too!". I went to a local car show last week to take a walk through. I pulled up in our 2015 pearl sublime green Dodge Challenger RT+ and the people at the gates practically begged me to enter it in the show. I ...

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

That's the truth. I was kind of surprised what they're selling for, even in the condition mine is in.

Monetary value aside, I think most of us build 510's for other reasons. They're unusual, fun, fast and cute!

Re: Datsun 510 Patches

Thanks. I have the software, so I digitize everything myself. I'm a graphics geek. I do decals, digital art (illustrator, photoshop), embroidery, etc. So the skill set kind of carries from one software to the next, as far as vectors, points, and all that.

HAHAHA!! Sorry, 3B, I already married the guitar player. :lol: Thanks, James! They're definitely a labor of love, aren't they. I've had a few guys ask me why I'm "bothering with a crappy old Datsun", and why don't I work on something valuable , like a '67 Mustang. My response is "I've...

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

And, now for something really different...rust removal! :lol: I started on the battery tray delete and inner fender-well rust repair today. I finished the tray delete, but I'm still working on the rust repair that was below it. http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii94/rush0011/510/IMG_4593.jpg http:/...

Datsun 510 Patches

I made myself this patch today & since it came out so nice, I thought others might like them, too. There seems to be so few 510 specific items. These patches can be ironed or sewn on. If you'd like one, just PM me for my PayPal address, and once payment is received, I'll make the patch for you &...
