    Hey Rick! Car is still going ok. Since I have been MIA from everyone online, I havent done much on the Minty as well. She's poorly neglected over the last couple of years, but she still runs and hopefully this year she will get some attention finally.

    It's been sometime, but back to posting online a little more. Glad to see some familiar faces from a few years ago when I left as well as some new ones that have joined a fresh.

    An open apology

    I know this is just going to blow up with mob mentality posts as people are pissed... its completely understandable. Ive been on the mob side as well so I know how this is going to go. But anyway, here is what I have to say. Tons of issues came up in life and I couldnt keep up with orders. I know thats not anyones problems I dont expect any slack to be cut on my part. I messed up and am 100% in the wrong. I had some issues a few years ago as well as some are aware of. Everything has snowballed and Im left playing catch up with highly dissatisfied customers. I never wanted that. Ive never tried to rip anyone off as Ive been here for years now... shit just got out of control. There is zero excuses for my behaviour as a person or as a business. No one should act the way I did. I love the Datsun community and have acted poorly. If youve noticed, I havent been around in quite some time. Ive got a ton of stuff going on and was trying to handle it. It obviously didnt go so well. Anyway, all items have been shipped. Im not trying to steal anything from anyone and this was the kick in the ass I needed to get going. It sucks it had to come to this, but its what happened. I have all orders shipped and Im going to take a hiatus from accepting orders for a minute. Im going to get my life back on track, work on the fundamentals of running this business, and come back even better. I love this place and want to keep supporting the community if possible. Im tired of disappointing customers lately and its frustrating. Im sure you all are frustrated as well. I took the cowards way out and didnt say anything about my issues and kept on going. Thats not the right thing. Im 100% wrong in every instance. Once Im completely sure things are correct, the business will be back. Itll be a bit, because I want to be positive I wont be screwing up. You guys dont deserve that. Im not in this to just make money, but to help you guys out with Datsun products. I wasnt doing that. All items should be on their way at this point. If you havent received anything in 7 days, please message me and we will work out the details. Im sure there will be plenty of posts of hate after I post that, and its to be expected. I messed up big time and Im sorry. Edit: On a slightly lighter note, the best part of all this is that its compelled Rick to figure out how to use Facebook to harass me there as well. I got a good chuckle out of that. I dont even know how he works the computer most of the time...

    Rat N Wrench Giveaway

    NOW CLOSED! Thanks for the participation. So because I now have some spare time to get back on Ratsun (or rather the internet at all), Im going to be doing a little giveaway. Its been far too long since Ive logged onto Ratsun so in honor of being a regular again, Id like to give away some free shit... I want to give away free sets of Rat N Wrenches in your choice of color. I have a good stock of them and lets get them sent out. Everything, including the shipping is completely free. Just PM your address and lets get this going. Ill send them out on my own dime (dime... get it... because 510. Im an idiot) and youll get to rock some forum pride. Ill probably throw in some other vinyl goodies or whatever I have laying around as well. Send me some PMs.

    Struggle

    I think I had like one flat while it was a daily. I was mostly driving Connies car when all that shit happened... Luckily it's been pretty good while it was getting me to work every day. *knock on wood grain Nardi*

    Struggle

    I daily drove my 510 40mi/day for nearly two years. I think I only had one mishap with it when the fan/alt belt broke on the way. Otherwise it was a fix as you go type of situation. Worked well for me.

    I thought this was today... I've been so busy at work that I mixed my days up. I wish I would have gotten a text or something.

    It's basically drilling holes into the body... Just like the 510. It's just not made for the 620 so it's just mocking it up when you get it and go for it. There's no tutorial or anything.

    Rat N Wrench Giveaway

    Some got two, some got three, some got just rats... It all varied. To those that I messaged back originally and you're still waiting, let me know what happens Monday. I've since deleted all those messages so I don't even remember what went where. Just pay attention to another giveaway in the future I guess. See what happens Monday

    No they don't. You modify the 510 one to fit.

    DATSUN HOTWHEELS (and some other ones)

    Wagon needs more dish to fill out the flares. Would be interesting to graft the wagon front into the Caddy body. Could basically make a Sunny pickup.

    Sightings

    Wasn't a Datsun, but a member sighting. Vintage Rice came into my work the other day... Neither one of us knows each other too well so it was funny when we both had a feeling we'd met before.

    I wonder if he would let me poke around the garage and try to score some deals. I'm sure he's got some decent parts lying around

    Just strap it to the passenger seat... Or take the seat out. Didn't Tim do that with his 210? Removed the seat and drove with an l20

    DATSUN HOTWHEELS (and some other ones)

    Need to get back on the Hotwheels hunt. I've been slacking and it looks like I've missed quite a few good ones.
