Re: justins (maybe track) car

Well I've tackled the headliner and installed the gloss black firewall assemblies. I will satin coat black the dash cage and heater box. I had a late 69 in the junk yard and.am using that wiring harness. My thought is there are far less unnecessary relays. I just have to build the tach subharness an...

Re: WTB Libre Wheels

Does anyone know if the usedvictoria rims will fit on the rear of a lowered unflared 510. 8's are pretty wide. Im wondering if they could be used for autocross slicks.

Re: WTB: Wagon rear bumper + BRE front spoiler

Not that it matters much,as a sedan bumper fitsxwell on a wagon. Besides being longer, the quarter panel attachment tabs are different. A sedan bumper tab has the captive nut. On a wagon the captive nut is on the quarter panel.

Re: Headlight issue - 510

Remember when you have the relay apart to clean the grounding point. The screw that holds the relay to the base. Take it apart there and make sure the bottom of the relay and the base are clean. And when it is screwed to the car that is the ground. As well many headlight issues have been solved by s...

Re: justins track car

Might have to change the thread title. We have downgraded it a bit. No cage and a l20b to start. I've bought springs from specialty and porterfield shoes and pads. Just keeping it simple and get it running. Justin can enjoy it for a while and upgrade it as he figures out how he is going to use it. H...

Re: radiator hose ?

Not to hijack this thread but has anyone tried to order from Japan stateside. Here the system has changed. What used to be like a fax request and a few days wait to determine availability, is now all on the computer. Maybe the US network has been upgraded. I just picked up 2 of the little elbow hose...

Re: radiator hose ?

It really helps to develop a relationship with a Nissan parts person. I almost aways order parts in person and try and stand out. Ordering parts for a 510 usually accomplishs this. Lol. And I supply the part numbers and pay in advance. Then when I do phone in something they have always let me slide....

Re: radiator hose ?

It sure seems as thick as the old weave hoses. The factory 2 wire clamps work just fine. And if we keep ordering from Nissan when we can, there's a better chance they will run another batch. You can still get inner window wipes and door bumpers as well. I am waiting on the little water hoses for the...

Re: radiator hose ?

I don't think Nissan is selling 30 year old rubber. I can't believe they are repackaging parts. I just picked up a set of rad hoses and here is a picture or the label. Looks like a date code above the part number. Nov 5th or may 11th 2012.
