Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

The end of the 2018 driving season for me. This year was also the end of an era, having been able to store my car at my place of work for 34 years, how lucky I was! That is the one thing I miss about work in retirement..MY GARAGE. I tested my lighting this past Monday at Specialty, to try and determ...

Re: Headlight fix

Thanks to Robyn, I picked up a relay and headlight switch.

Today I tried the relay and even though it clicked nice and solidly, the lights did not come on.

Let the mining begin.....

Re: 15" Riken Mesh wheels for sale

hey Ryan,

If you see this please send me a PM, the number you gave me says not in service. I have a friend heading to the Island and could bring the wheels.

Re: Headlight fix

Good point, lets hope mine is fixable. Worst case, I put my knob on the switch so at least it looks correct...want to keep my car stock looking.....

Are you at the yard all day then?

Re: Noobie's 510 project

Let me know EXACTLY when you are coming, I will get Datsun jacked up if I can. At the moment there is room for me to work on the car as my son in laws trailer is down in California getting modded.

Re: Headlight fix

WELL...NOBODY showed up so that offer is off the table..... So, after doing all that Rob suggested, and, checking power in so many places, it appears that the switch is the issue. When I get some more time I will peel the seat out and begin the mining operation to get at the switch. I hope I can rep...

Re: Headlight fix

Oh well, let's hope it is not the switch.

My wife says I need to buy EVERYBODY a Mexican dinner to come and diagnose this with me!

Re: Headlight fix

It is amazing..that ALL the grounding goes through that relay for the headlights. I think, as Byron and I were going to change up my headlights, that ultimately a re-wire for the front was destined anyhow, so if it was the headlight switch, that would be an easy fix. Robyn, would you have the 73' he...

Re: Headlight fix

In another few hours I will be heading over to get the 510 and zip over to Specialty. I spent an hour yesterday looking at the wiring diagram, trying to follow Mr. Electron's path. I really do hope that if it is anything, it will be the relay. To get at my light switch now is a major mining expediti...

Re: Photobucket trying to blackmail me.

In my last e-mail from Rimski ( who is finally online from Lake Bullshitski ) he is working on a new project from the Siberian wilderness. Like Musk and Branson, he thinks Space tourism is where it is going to be at. Tired of recovering himself from the bottom of Lake Bullshitski, he has embarked on...
