    Got everything buttoned up today with the carb swap. Fuel rail in, PCV hose on, etc... With all that done, decided to fire it up and see what happens... Of course, then the logical next step with it running nice is to see if it moves. And it does... 😁 It desperately needed a bath so that was first... I drove it about 4-5 miles around the neighborhood and it pulls HARD. Like, surprisingly hard. Can't wait to get it out on a twisty road and see what it can do... Once I finished the test drive I pulled it back inside and decided to de-sticker the front lip... I liked the stickerbomb at first, but decided it wasn't really my thing after all... The steering feels nice, brakes feel great (although pedal is a tad soft), front suspension is spot on, rear suspension not so much. My front springs have a wheel rate of 200, but the rears are about 165. I definitely need to stiffen up the rear, sooner rather than later. Trying to do donuts in a parking lot led to LOTS of body roll in the rear... 😄

    After a month in Ohio, ShepTrans finished and shipped our freshly built transmission back to PSI. Arrived yesterday. Things are back up and running at light speed so we should be firing up the engine and doing some break in cycles late Monday and tuning early next week. On the stand ready to go In and moounted It's not a ragged edge race motor by any stretch, but it will easily make our power goals with room to spare. The drive train and chassis are set up to deal with what ever the engine throws at it, so this thing should be a blast to thrash for years to come.

    SUs acquired, Solexes sold, time to move on... Ported GX intake... Had to trim a few millimeters off the bottom to clear the header, but got it bolted on with a decent air gap between the two. 👍 That's about as far as I got, but I couldn't resist chucking the carbs on for a test look... Saturday I will redo the fuel lines (yet again), and get everything bolted up for good. Fingers crossed for another (more successful) test run of the engine... 😁

    I have been working on cleaning up the rust, and old paint in the bed of Ratsun. It is a long process, I have been doing smaller areas, and getting primer on the areas, before working another area. I am still figuring out what methods I can use with the tools I have. The following six pictures are the areas I cleaned, then used a wash primer on , then an epoxy primer on.

    Too long since I've worked on this. But i got some real work done on it. Passenger door frame is fully assembled but not quite fully welded in. I ran out of weld gas last night before i finished. This door frame didnt go that well. Ignorance caused me to remove a lot i shouldnt have, so this thing is pretty piecemeal. Its going to take a lot of finish work to clean up. Drivers side should go much better. Anyways heres the pics.

    I bought a set for my 521 for around $80, not original but actually pretty nice... I had to make my own brackets because I had nothing to start with but it might be the way to go..... These are what I bought, just search datsun bumperettes..... These were the brackets I made.... I used tape to hold the bumperettes in place made a cardboard piece that I turned into metal.... I also welded the carriage bolts to them and ground the outside flush... End result....
