  1. Had a grand ole time again this year. Was way too busy talking Hot Wheels(also general BSing) with people to take pics. Yes, I said it, I took zero show pics. I did, however, get some shots around town. AZ hitman's wagon. Karen's Roadster Chuck's Z Ranman's Dime AZ hitman's Bluebird So the weather forecast going into this was a bit sketchy and I kept going back and forth on whether I would take the Grey coupe. Friday morning I decided what the hell let's take it. The drive out Friday was awesome. A little wind and a lot of sun. Saturday wa

  3. Extremely heavily regulated. My old job had me going to slaughterhouses pretty much every week. The onsite FDA guys usually were happy to have someone to talk to who spoke English ?

  4. Mine had threaded holes in the corners that I bought M8 thread eye-bolts to put in. They have held through thousands of miles of motorcycle-hauling. I don't think I could get them out now if I wanted to. They're so rusty they're one with the truck.

  5. You beat me to it Mike I'm old, going blind and deaf, I'm a crappy speller, and suffer from legit spine issues. Dude if I was a horse my shoe size would be glue. LOL Actually, the closest I come to being deaf is sharing a shitty handicapped section at the Greek Theater with deaf people. In fact, the opening band's lighting took out half the wheelchair section due to strobe induced secures, so my tribe (the sensory disabled group) revolted and seized the unsettled mobility disabled territory. We hit them with a campaign of pure shock and awe. We came with unrelenting wav

  6. I'm all for humane treatment of all animals, specially the tasty ones. So these protesters keep those companies who police themselves a little more honest. Did they say Fearman's Meats??? Wow, when I was 7-8 I lived on a Fearman's Meats pig farm south of Hamilton. I even went to the plant in Burlington once. They made Mary Miles brand bacon. Mmmmmmmm ......... bacon.

  7. You have air in the ABS pump. IIRC, Infiniti/Nissan use Consult to cycle the ABS pump when bleeding. Obviously, this isn't something you have. What you could try doing is re-bleed the brakes and take it for a slow drive. Slam on the brakes a few times so that you can cycle the ABS pump and it should help purge the air from the ABS pump. This may take a few tries. Re-bleed the traditional way afterwards. You could always trailer it out to us in Carrollton (about 45 minutes west of Atlanta) and we could bleed it in the shop, we have the necessary tools to do so.

  9. Bend the float lever up. You might hit the top of the tank and only read 3/4 full when full but it would at least let you know when you were nearing empty.

  10. Ya that's what I couldn't get mine to do... with no gas the float was touching the bottom of the tank.... I would be empty at a quarter tank.... and full would only read 3/4....

  13. Welcome :) I am sure someone has put power windows in their 521 but I do not know who. I made kingcabs out of two of my trucks(520/521) as I like legroom, I believe it would be better to focus on brakes first, get it stopping good and reliably.

  14. Ya the more I look at the pic I think what I thought was clamps were actually splits in the outer tubing... it almost looks like nothing supports it... That outer covering looks like something you could get at home depot to insulate pipes, and I'm sure you could rig a clamp or 2...

  15. I know it's not ideal to buy from the US, but these guys have everything leaf spring related - https://www.stengelbros.net/Round-Bend-U-bolts_c_562.html If you are only searching the web for lowering blocks, your results may be limited. Try searching for lift blocks too.

  16. Sadder still and worse than death is to be forgotten for not having left any trace of your travels through this world. It's a form of immortality to be remembered by those people we have touched in some way. I think you will be around for a long time here at Ratsun, Dave. Safe travels on your journey through the void.

  17. Definitely eye bolts, they look factory and are the same paint color as the bed. They look like M8. I think I'll bolt or weld beefier D-rings to the sidewalls on the inside.

  18. I've perhaps found a solution in UK: Grayston lowering blocks All the blocks are talking about Ford cars. Do you think it's different from Datsun ? It looks like very similar to me but I don't want to purchase for nothing...

  19. I moved the clamp in order to let the flat leaf alone but it didn't change anything. It seems that all 3 are flat. Do I need to ride the car to make the leaf take their new heigh ? Is it better to remove the clamps completely or to let them where I put them ?

  22. Thank you, im very proud of it! They only imported the Nissan Patrol into the states between 1963-69, they made a pickup version, but they were never imported into the US market. There are 3 that i know of that were shipped over by private individuals. I didnt want to go that route so i cut up a Nissan Patrol and made my own version of the pickup. Its the only one like it in the US!!

  23. There was a larger aluminum one from China on ebay that looked more like a 210 radiator but they refuse to respond to any questions about size or anything and I can't find it anymore. I honestly don't understand why these 1200 sized tiny radiators are everywhere but none in 210 or b210 size since the 210 radiator will fit in any of all 3 cars and cools way better! Someone NEEDS to make an aluminum 210/B310 radiator!

  24. Looks similar to the radiatior I bought. Had to make my own brackets to fit but it keeps my engine nice and cool with no issues.

  26. Removing vent windows and replacing with one piece side door windows was a common VW bug modification. I think the buzz word was "California Look."

  27. Did you ever finish your power window install? It looks like you removed your vents and went one-piece windows. Could you post some pics of how this turned out? Was it hard to remove the vents and open up the door channel for one-piece? I wonder if anyone has done this in a 320.
