Is that on Mac or Windows? Doesn't work for me on Windows in File Explorer...
This is on windows. I just checked, and it must have changed when I upgraded to windows 11. Open with "Paint" and you'll see the resize option, which is an icon that looks like a small box inside a large dotted box. Hopefully this helps.

So, it's been a while again, been enjoying the coupe and just kinda driving around to local meets and car shows, haven't really done much to the coupe other than a push button start kit and servicing everything. I did finally restore this little guy I've had for the last 12 or so years.....so at least something is getting done.

I also got the original grille back from the SSSRestorers, I sent it out a while back and finally got it back and installed.....I do love the 73 grille but this is the original....so I like it too.

Here's the gas tank filler mod, ford ranger/mazda filler hose assembly (amazon $45). It took a little modification but nothing too bad, it doesn't leak out the cap anymore. I hate that I don't have the original cap look, but oh well. It's much better than smelling gas. The only real con of this is the angle of the filler hole, it's a little tricky not spilling gas when filling.

This is the push button starter kit i installed, really easy kit, I actually bought this at the big Import Alliance meet this year, priced at about $100, i figured it would be worth it, and I think it was. I just bought the generic kit and used a connector from my vintage connector box to pin the wires from the kit's harness to the ignition switch, really easy, it also uses an RFID dongle to scan before you can start the car. I didn't take any pics of the wiring.....I forgot.

Which switch did you get? They list modern Nissan vehicles, but I don't see anything explicitly stating fitting the 510.

Thanks.

I bought it from the vendor at the car show, he said I needed the generic kit, there’s not a kit for the 510. So he put together the kit right there in front of me, basic white (light) color button and the rfid sensor and the wiring harness and controller. I think they are all the same but for each type car like a Honda or Nissan, they just have the right connector to plug and play into your car. I basically got one without that plug installed, so I looked up the ignition switch pinout and pinned a connector that plugs into where my original ignition switch plugs.
