I have searched through your build but I don't find what you used for your rear brake rotors. I am interested in also converting mine to 5 lug and the R31 calipers.

What are you using for your T/C rod setup? Assuming adjustable, right?

Hi Gents I am looking for some help with respect to my side windows. Whilst I have looked around on the internet I can't seem to find the detail I am after. I am interested in a close up pictures of the latch mechanism on the side windows. I am trying to determine which way the latch/locking bracket bolts up to the the car bracket (sorry if my explanation is not very clear). That is does it sit inside or outside to the bracket attached to the car?

I was looking at which side it bolted up, which I had right, but I can't get the latch to close fully, it has a lot of tension already at 90 degrees. hmmmm any chance you have a picture of how the spring is placed?

When I installed new latches in my son's car I had some trouble getting it to latch. I also tried to figure out if I had them installed correctly. It did latch but took more force than I thought it should. It was a bit scary. I just told my son to leave it. closed.

I recently went to a Datsun day in Perth. Organised by the Z guys in Perth, only two categories for trophies, that being BEST Z and BEST OTHER Datsun. Kinda bias, but hell, so am I. So for me there were two pretty interesting cars for the day, All original datsun 1600 wagon in green, which looked to be driven by the original owner :) and the not so original Datsun 1600 ute, sporting a FJ20T
