For those who care heres a bunch of pictures of whats been happening with the 70 datsun 510 that we got for my little brother, it should be painted in about 1-2 weeks (what color?) who knows? but it should look nice, just that we are curently waiting for my cousin to finish some rust spots he found
Dash Cap (old and new)
Autopower Roll Bar (direct bolt on)
An Extra Grill (will be painted black)
Mirrors & Badges
New Turn Signal Lenses
My brother and I sanded the whole car down got it ready for body work.
After that it was time to strip the car and let the body work begin.
Some Shots of the Body Work being done (by my cousin)
Interior was stripped and will be sanded to clean it up a bit. Then will be sprayed with Quiet Car
We had to pressure wash the whole inside of the car to get out dirt, and we spayed some 409 cleaner to get any oil out, that way the quiet car stuff would go on easy
Heres a few pictures of after it dried
After the first coat of quiet car, we will still put one more but we have to let it dry
New Valence 8) that i got @ a swap meet kinda rare to get it new
Quick Glass bead, now ready for paint (this goes behind the dash)
those racing stripes are almost gone!
Here are some goodies i also got at the swap-meet, plus i still got the ones that came with the car (damn tailights are expensive and rare to find in good condition)
Well as u may know i have a 2000 Si but my little brother just got a new old car, i have to help him getting looking good its a 1970 Datsun 510. From what ive seen they are kinda rare hard to find, we seen a lot of good ones for sale but super expensive. This ones a fixer-uper need some more parts mostly interior (ebay) and some body work (uncle) and paint (cousin). The motor is an L18 car runs and handles great. Ill try and post updates as we get it restored. Mostlikely it will get a SR20DET but who knows, if u know anyone or any place were i cand find parts let me know (like a stock tach). Thanks
well most likely it wont be an SR20 maybe KA24. The SR is to much money to get installed lets just say its about 10 grand to get it working right with all the fabrication, parts and work. So we think it might be better to go with the KA24de that motor can be dropped right in with a little work plus it can be moddified to be faster also but we just wanted for a fun daily driver
