This is still work in progress, but I wanted to get some feedback to see if you think the functionality and visuals are in the right direction.

Make sure you're logged in and click the following link: : PREVIEW HERE

Thoughts?

Can you check again? I had to update a setting to allow users to access it.

it's too white/bright .. I like how the510realm has always had a blue'ish 'non white' background for everything ... and I'd be happy to donate some full size photos if you need a header image

I don't think the mock site's "feel" represents our interest and tone very well. Seems Earthy.
The current feel is a good starting point: maybe try a lighter tone with white and light grey bg colors overlayed by 100% black body copy with a shade (60-75%) of black for the header font? Think squarespace-esq. Even accents of red here and there might be nice.

It would be nice to have a few 510/Datsun banner images somewhere so simply by glancing at the site one would know exactly what the site is all about without having to read through it.

Regardless of whatever you decide to do, thank you so much for putting this site together! It's a great place to visit and a great resource of knowledge for all us Datsun nuts!

Best,
C

haha ok guys.. I will not use that new theme as a base. I will stick with the current one and just try and make a few minor changes. Cheers!

For me as long as I can find the information I could care less on what it looks like. I do miss the original ( or last ) version , I agree with most that we need some type of 510 somewhere on the home page.

Made some updates which you should all be seeing now. Not perfect and not finished but hopefully better! I was able to dig up some of header images from quite some time ago
