    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 was cloudy with the promise of rain but that didn't start until the show was almost over when they we doing the awards and raffles. Later in the afternoon and into the evening it dumped a few times and through the night I kept waking up to the sound of thunder. This is what I found at about 5:30 Sunday morning. It wasn't quite cold enough for the roads to freeze but we still decided to wait until the sun came up. Might as well go to breakfast. Look who else was there. Got to visit some more with Ranman and Missus Ranman and a gal that has a Roadster whose name is Kelly also (Kelley, Kellie, I'm not sure how to spell that for a girl). Was a great little extra visit that we weren't expecting. We finally got on the road to head home about 8:45. It was very cloudy and the snow had turned to rain. Outside of Flagstaff it dropped off. At one rest stop a guy rolls up in his car and says "Hey man, we just saw a car just like that (the grey coupe) on a trailer on our way here, but it looked brand new" I said "really, did it look like that one" and pointed to Missus Kelmo's coupe sitting about 40 yards in front of him. Outside of Holbrook the rain started again. Close to Grants NM it turned into snow...big fat snow flakes. At this point I started to think about where we could leave the grey coupe and come back Monday. Once we were outside Grants the snow and rain eventually stopped. With the four stops we made it took us about 7 1/2 hours to make it home (about 395 miles). It was at that point I decided not to ever drive a 1200 across country again unless it can go 85 MPH and has some decent tunes and decent seats. Missus Kelmo did real good towing her car even when the semi ahead of us decided it would be a good idea to pull off the road at a point where there was a guard rail on his right and she had to squeeze between that semi and one on her left...without a lot of room to do it in. It was great to see everybody and visit. Greg and Becky did a good job with the show and we are planning already for next year.

    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 ?

    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.

    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 waves of canes and incoherent vocalizations... They never saw it coming. Stella, the last song played at the final show of their 2018 tour.

    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.

    Frozen in the winter. It's always damp here in the winter so a dip in the temps and they freeze up. Couple of times they quit and had to take the door apart. I think the damp would affect the switch contacts.

    Datsun 1200 wiki, Phil installed a chrysler Lebaron radiator to cool his A15. Lebaron radiator has the inlet outlet tubes in the right place, but not sure about dimensions and fit.

    Super helpful, thanks! No holes in the shroud but now that I know at least the hose is supposed to be in that general area, I'll just rig something up. Truck is 32 years old who knows what has been modded before.....

    I hear you. I find myself being politically in-correct just for the lultzness of it all. Ever had one of those days when everything goes crazy wrong? A perfect storm of fucked-up-edness? and you reach that point where you just start giggling, and that turns into hysterical laughter? Well life is often that way. If lucky, you learn sooner than later to... 'just not give a fuck'. My moto is "Try to get along, and don't be a cunt" If the braille comment offends anyone, other than Paradime, sorry I spent my last fuck this week by Wednesday.

    Tim decided he wanted to change up the panel he made to "shroud the radiator and extend it up and over the whole thing... Trim the panel... Bend up another piece... He also added a hinge... Still needs some trimming, bending and tweaking...

    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!

    It was narrower than original but thicker. I want to say about an inch or 2 narrower on the sides. Still had plenty of room for the fan. Mine is a 1977 b210 so not sure if the dimensions would be different if any.

    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.

    You have brand new NOS wingwindow gaskets in your rig, and you live in CA, the CA look in CA is just lame now. :lol:

    A very common way to control electric window motors in cars is to use two relays. One relay is the "up" relay, and the other relay is the "down" relay. The two wires from the electric motor are hooked to pin 30 on each relay. Pin 87, and pin 85 are grounded on both relays. Pin 87A gets fused power, on both relays. Applying power to pin 86 of the up relay makes the window go up, and applying power to pin 86 on the down relay makes the window go down. The power going to pin 86 is way less than an amp, and just about any switch can handle it, and you can have more than one switch location. Driver could have an extra switch, to move the passenger window. The circuit works like this. The electric window motor normally has both sides grounded by the relays. When you apply power to either relay, the relay moves the window motor ground connection on that relay from ground to power, and the other side of the window stays grounded, and the window motor moves.
