Re: Exhaust sound

Circling back in the hopes that this will help others re this topic. Decided to invest in a 24" long 4" outside diameter resonator and have it installed at local exhaust shop here in the Vancouver WA region. True to all things I've been told and read here and elsewhere, the resonator paired with the...

Re: Exhaust sound

I have the same exact year, model, engine setup and question as the OP. Currently I'm using 2" SS mandrel bent pipe from the collector back to a Magnaflow Universal muffler. It certainly "farts" like no tomorrow on deceleration(s). Under hard, quick accelerations thru the gear box it's acceptable no...

72' 510 Horn Wiring / Momo Corse Wheel Assy

Re: Shiny Like A New Dime

The weather and my schedule finally aligned (no pun intended) and allowed for me to visit "The Line-Up Shop" in SE Portland to have the 510's front end alignment looked at. It's an old school shop that by all appearances, has been around for a long long time. They do accept and evaluate vehicles wit...

Re: Shiny Like A New Dime

Measured twice..., well actually, many times. Turned out pretty good. Side to side Hood alignment shifted a tad. Will tackle that in the am. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4180/34503642866_e3efff8edf.jpg [url=https://flic.kr/ p/UyYbWf]34503418486_fa532457a8_o[/url] https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4191/...

Re: WTS: Nissan Lap & Shoulder Belt Set (Black), Vancouver WA

Their 3 point retractable config but I specified it to my year and make of Datsun as they (SeatBeltPlanet) have a specific config with an approx 9" drop loop from the B-Pillar mo...

Re: Shiny Like A New Dime

beautiful car. Congrats! I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking at on the picture of the shift tower or whatever its called. Is that thing bolted directly to the sheet metal in the tunnel? If so, that seems like a problem to me... Thanks for the kind words. The car originally came from the factory w...

Re: Shiny Like A New Dime

The popular vinegar bath process for the fuse box paid dividends...., dome, hazard lights came back on line. Followed TheHeretic's (Ryan's) lead and added some D'Amp Pro to the rear quarter panels with layers of Spectrum atop. Floor pans received the POR-15 treatment for a bit of rust, followed up w...
