box flares ftw my new to me project

Postby dislexicdime » 21 Dec 2010 18:07

So the plan for this car is pull out carpet hope the floors are solid ! I already found one pop riveted repair I will probably replace that pan. build a s12 rack set up for the sr that is going in this car. I also need to buy a Ron Davis radiator and a inter cooler and piping . fix the cracks in the flares and fix the tail light panel.

But the plan while i am doing all this is put exhaust on and roll it after i clean it up.
This thing has some sweet 70's swade interior. It was to dark to take pics of it.
while going through the car i found air cleaners for side draft's so I wonder if it had side drafts on it at one time.
The car has a l20b with a w53 head a 32/36 and header. charlie thinks it might have a cam in it. I have not driven it yet so i do not know if it does. I need to put the 21/4 exhaust I have sitting in my back yard on it. the exhaust that is on it stops under the back seat and is strait piped.

I just noticed it has euro tails in it

Thanks for the close-up - that first picture made the hood look like it had some sort of leaf effect :)

I enjoy the occasional box-flared 510. Ryan's car is awesome in equal parts because of the paint, flares, and wheels.

Is the S12 rack conversion somewhat standardized?

who is Ryan? got a link?

A friend of mine uses the s12 rack in his sr swaps and is showing me how to do it.
After having a power steering and a rack in my other car it is the only way to go. :lol:

Today I got it started! Man its loud with no muffler. Turned on all the lights and had no rear lights except blinkers.
Then i realized it was not blinking through the turn signals it was blinking through the tail lights. So i fixed the ground and bam! The blinkers started blinking and the tail and brake lights worked. Then I noticed the tail light harness was hacked so I replaced both harnesses . Unfortunately I could not take it for a drive because the battery I put in was a little to tall. :(

I want to take this thing on a test drive so bad!!

If you are looking for wide body, you could always go this route...
These are Specialty Engineerings Box flares - Andy has done a great job on these, and I know of only of two street cars that have used them - neither get regular use, both are in the Pacific Northwest.

those cars are sexy !

Here is what the previous owner did to the suspension

the car has 280zx struts with alumina cartridges new zx rotors and calipers and pads and 6k coilovers.

alumina's and 6k coilovers in the rear. charlie cut out the rear perch so it will fit a larger spring. that way he could run the rear e36 style

I love flares on just about any car....the wider the better. It just looks mean and all buisness. I just picked up a set of TRD N2 box style flares for my KP61 Starlet project. I should be able to install some 13x9 negative 10 offset wheels on it now. Got to have big lips man....the bigger the better. :wink:

After talking to jnec last night and getting some back ground on the car . I went out and pulled the carb apart cleaned all the jets checked there sizes it has 140 main 60 idle and a 170 air corrector on the main circuit. Nothing was clogged there was a verry small amount of crap in the float bowl .
After I stuck it all back together I did the thing I always tell every one to do when they are having weber issues . Make sure the mounting bolts are tight! I tightened each bolt at least 1.5 turns. I am going to test drive it today.

Wish me luck.

Thanks jnec
