Thanks for the feedback. If you're comfortable with the restrictions you can drop by as I'm "self-isolating" daily in my garage which is helping me get stuff done. I'm trying to do some future planning regarding the engine, I have most of the key parts on hand for the Z2.4 engine rebuild but my future plan is to have about 300HP on tap.

Floor rot isn't uncommon, I'm going to have to do some lower body rebuilding once I get to that stage. The rockers were pretty much rotted through and I did see some re-pops listed on Ebay long ago but I didn't buy then, guess I should have. Pretty much anything mechanical is easy enough to find though. What are you planning to do with yours?
Pretty much run it as you see it!

Brought it home with a KA in the bed and it was pretty torn apart. Trying to keep it a bit on a budget... Redid all the wiring, got it running, built a dash as the stock one was totally cracked, gross and I was missing the bezel.. Plan is just to drive the hell out of it! My 510 is fun, but so much of a race car essentially now that it can be kinda boring/rough to just cruise around it... so this fills the void of a fun summer daily, errand runner, dump run truck... etc...

Got a build thread going over on Ratsun if your bored...

At this point just working on a few minor things and then Ill just take care of stuff as it comes up. Got a few hundred miles on the truck already.

The blessing of the pandemic - I have even more time on my hands to work on my truck!
