Re: LD20 turbo wagon build

Hi Baz, You're right, we didn't put the moldings in before installation. We were quite worried it would be easy to bend the stainless on installation and previously when I've had the glass guys do it they install the moldings after. On the rear it seems this is likely the only option, but it seems ...

Re: LD20 turbo wagon build

I notice that it appears that the mouldings on the rear windshield seal were fitted after the seal was installed. Did you install & align the moulding on the front windshield before installation on the vehicle. It is most important for correct fitment to install the mouldings to seals before install...

Re: Broken TC Rod

On our wide track front end we built a proto type TC rod setup.
We wanted the pivot point further forward , longer length and higher mounting point.

Purpose was to reduce caster change over bumps.
And to make adjustment easy.

Bracket is bolt on using existing points & crush tubes where needed.

In the early days of the red poly bushes the snapping of the rods was common. For safety reasons most rally 510s use a wire tether cable from...

The 62 cam x 4 =248 the 62 is listed with all the factory rally cams. see here. http://www.datsport.com/Camshaftspec.html The 70/72 cam is great for ...

Re: windsceen gaskets & datsun rubber seals

We do not yet make the fender to body seals as yet. We are endeavouring to locate a good condition genuine seal in Aus.
They are certainly on the list. Thanks for the feed back.

Re: windsceen gaskets & datsun rubber seals

Richard has just completed the corner moulds for the rear 2 door quarter class to frame seal. Again very supple rubber. Just try bending a join on Thailand rubber like this. Instant fail. We have had quite a few enquiries on these seals. At this time we are unsure of the quantity to produce. Any sug...
