Re: Chasing J's

2nd Paragraph assumes shortened strut housing...basically adding a spacer to the bottom of a shortened strut would/could match the spindle height of the J's strut. However it appear from the pictures that the thru spindle would cause the need for a really short insert which would provide less travel...

Re: Chasing J's

Dave, I was waiting for you to chime in. "The plus with this design is it lowers the car w/o creating a positive camber gain on compression, at least in theory as there are so many other variables with a modified car." Wouldn't this be the same as adding a spacer to the strut bottom...you only have ...

Re: Chasing J's

My thing is there are claims made which are not substantiated nor are any specs provided. If your going to make claims then provide comparisons, data, and specs for us to look at before clicking the buy button.

Re: Rust and Preservation

Also looking to replace the factory sound absorption pads in the firewall area. DEI makes some products I could cut out to stock shape and hang, but not sure about their moisture absorption qualities...maybe keeping them off the floor will prevent any issues

Chasing J's

Anyone using Chasing J's Product line either on the street or the track. Looks like top shelf fabrication. Looking for honest comparison type feedback if available. Most notably the front strut redesign is interesting, but not sure that bump steer claims are substantial as no concrete data or specs ...

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

Agreed...spot on...my 9yr old son and I were enjoying the first few episodes this evening....He especially likes British humor as I do, and he is a Minecraft maniac that loves Dan TDM....Bollocks, Bloody, etc. and all that

Re: Rust and Preservation

I was also thinking that I could eliminate the Miracle paint altogether and just use the Waxoyl hard wax undercoating in the inner fender well areas.

Re: Rust and Preservation

Sorry, maybe I wasn't descriptive enough. Hope some pictures will help. I have (2) 4dr 510s and they are the same color which may be a little confusing. One is a rolling restoration and the other is a full on complete disassemble and restore. Here are some pictures of the rolling restoration which I...

Rust and Preservation

As some of you know I am in the middle of (2) 510 restorations. One is a complete disassembly, the other is more of a rolling restoration. They are both 4dr cars, and both receiving VG upgrades. The plan for reassembly is to return the rolling restoration back to DD status and then begin to assemble...

Re: For Sale - 1970 Datsun 510 2 door VG33 Project

Good luck with completing the sale my friend. I was sure that it would go fast as its a great offering to the 510 community and comes from a very reliable and committed source. As you know I was looking forward to completing our builds together, but have no doubt that you are doing the right thing. ...

Re: VG30 z31 conversion info

Thanks Dave, Yes been there a few times and been through it all. All the plumbing to the intake has a purpose. The EGR is an emissions device and may not need to be retained. There is some thought that blocking this off will change the mixture at cruise when it should be open and working. It has bee...
