thanks guys ! now I just need some 8in wide rims and/or some spacers to push the wheels out.

Image

I also have to figure out what struts I have and what is the best brake to use on said strut that will fit a 14in rim. I believe the struts are v6 200sx struts.
as the spacing for the caliper looks to be the same as the 280 but the disc is non vented. Image from the top : 200, 200, 280, 510,510

I have a bunch of spacers if you want to try some out. She is looking great.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

spurred on by the positive comments, dash frame swap commenced and completed.ImageImage I also picked up my new headliner from Classic threads. no its not the correct material but the yards did not have to be imported. powder coated bows and hot water tank insulationImageImagepainted the wrong cowl :roll: I thought I was done with non interchangeable parts when I finished the 68.Image

I tried breaking it free with the starter to no avail..... :cry:
