    I need a full wiring harness for my 72 521. I mainly need the interior section. But 9f possible, I'd like all of it. I don't mind if the condition isn't perfect, I can rewire any problems. But I'd like a starting point. If you have one, shoot me a cost and description. Had an electrical fire about a week ago ruining quite a bit of wiring. Thankfully the truck is fine. Thanks in advance as this will save my butt. Please email me anything at relicskateboards.info@gmail.com I will keep up here. But that's my business email, and can respond immediately. Thanks!

  2. Actually similar to what I'm planning. I want some light up switches anyway, so I'm going to use relays where needed.
  3. The fuse box is actually all new. The wiring has been tampered with badly in the trucks past, and I've just been making due these past 10 years. Abandoned wires everywhere and some really bad work. I wanna make it fresh. Plus it coming from sitting in Arizona for years baking some of the wires too. I'm going to do little runs at a time to make it not too daunting. My main question is for the headlights. These absolutely need new wires. And the high beams. I'm considering running most the truck in 14 gauge and running heavy load lines like that in 12 gauge. Better too much than too little. And I'll document everything. Make my own proper schematic (I'm a drafter so that's something I'm well trained in). And I'll post up as I go if any are interested.
  4. Hey all. I'm gearing up to do a 100% rewire on my 521. She desperately needs it. What is the largest size wire on there? Is anything larger than 14 gauge?

    OEM radio question

    With Bluetooth if I can. I think I have a solution. I'll post up once I know for sure.

    OEM radio question

    Ya pretty much. I would like to use the stock hole if I can. Doesn't need to be original.

    Thanks mate. Now if anyone knows after market that would work too I'll be set

    OEM radio question

    I finally got a replacement dash. So I actually have a spot for an OEM or OEM style radio. I'm not finding anything OEM for a 521. If possible I really wanna use the stock hole if I can. Are there any other cars that match up? And/or what have you all installed?
  9. Picked up this bad boy today. It's older and a little rough. But it matches the truck well. And I can give it the tlc it deserves.
  10. Located one. Needs to be polished. But it's in decent shape otherwise.
  11. Hi all. Long time no post. Right to it. I need one. Mine is starting to fall to bits. Are there any after market sources to get new? Or am I going to have to find used. Would like new if I can find one. I've been slowly restoring my interior. Will post progress pics soon.
  12. I already have wood door handles. I'm going to make some new ones and stain them to match. I'm looking into how to make wood door cards too. But I need to figure out where to get wood thin enough. Either that or go with aluminum and veneer. Being a wood worker, that's usually the first direction I take, or at least look at lol. Fyi. I'm looking into making a wood camper shell.
  13. Finally got around to replacing my dash on my 521. As you can see, it's non existent and toast. The speaker and tablet was so I could have an am/fm radio for the drive in theater. Imagine my delight when I found I could pull the whole top of the dashboard. Now I wond deny, it was still a pain in the ass. But I got the thing off. While I worked on the dash too, I made a cardboard cover to protect the wires from the sun. Here is the initial fit up. I didn't take any pics of the measurement work. The wood is an oak plywood, and a basic pine trim piece from home depot. I used a high bind wood glue so I didn't have to worry about nail or staple marks to hide. I honestly agonized about what color stain to use. I decided on black as I figured it'd be more subtle. Here is the stain before clear. I was thinking of going darker. But I really like how the stain popped. So I stopped there. Here is the finished product. Sorry for the poor light. I finished installing it after it got dark. I made up a few custom brackets to mount it up. I'm pretty stoked how it came out.

    Brakes

    Drum brakes, if maintained, can stop as quick as disk, as long as you aren't riding the brakes and heating them up. They do get fade worse, agreed. But I'm not racing it. I have new drums and equipment all around. And can lock my brakes up just as easily as if they had disk. That includes in the wet. And I have good rubber on them too. She stops good, believe me. I do get the adjustment comment. That is a bit of a chore. I don't know what datsun (nissan) was thinking. Auto adjust tech had been out a loooong time already.
