Sorry for the wait. The shortened S12 control arms are 11.5 inches from the center of the control arm bushing to the center of the ball joint.

Re: 510 oil painting

Nice! Id like to have something like that hanging in my office. Use to be a place online (probably still is) called old car art that sold lithographs like that. You have an original! Too bad they dont have a 510.

Re: 2dr CA18det build

Re: 2dr CA18det build

Mounting points were cut off and modified to line up in the 510 chassis and bolt to the factory mounting points. Doubler plates were made up that sandwich the new crossmember in like th...

Re: 2dr CA18det build

Thanks for the compliments. defdes, The ebrake handle it self is from an 85 300zx. I did not like how the 280zx one mounted and how the cable was sealed to the trans tunnel.
