Welcome to the 510 realm.

My advice would be not to SR20 it. The L series is an amazing sounding engine.

Where down south in little britain are you? Couple of us in and around London, Kent and Essex. None are currently road worthy though.

I'm from hastings but the car along with 2 other classics are stored away in suffolk, I haven't seen the cars for about 10 years but I remember them being fairly good condition, I'm not physically capable of working on cars myself nowadays so I'll be leaving to someone else to get them up and running, starting with the datsun

Not too far from me. I'm from Brighton and now in East London/Essex.

There's a guy in Norfolk restoring a 510 at the moment. Not sure on his quality of work though. All depends what you expect and how deep your pockets are. Mine need 2 rockers, 2 trunk drops, 2 lower rear 1/4 (before and after the wheel) and a rear beaver panel. I've ben quoted £5000 - £8000 for this. More than what I'd be willing to pay.

Think we're almost up to 10 now in the UK.
