    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    Got a steering wheel cover from 'Wheelskins.' It takes an hour to put on but they are nice. They have a variety of custom leather wheel covers already in their system but if you have an obscure car you can send them measurements (like I did) and they'll make it for you at the same cost. I have one on my Pathfinder and decided to get one for Stanley. They made it too big first time around but they took it back, fixed it and resent. It looks pretty good.

    Yeah that's what I paid for it. Give them cash and they kick the tax on it. I saved for a while to have it done.

    Anybody in the San Diego/Chula Vista area can check out a 210 for me? One of the guys I know can't get there til Tuesday and I'm hoping what I want is in good shape and won't be gone before then but if one of you all is out there and doesn't mind looking I'd appreciate it. There's a yellow 210 at the LKQ in the Chula Vista East lot. It's a yellow 4 door with brown interior. Brown hardly ever shows up. I'd like an extra steering wheel if it isn't too crusty. If one of you is going there can you holla? PM me and I'll send you my cel so you can text pics. It's on the lot today so it's fresh. Section: RIMP Row B Space 10

    It's been so long I honestly don't remember. It was a big ole pain in the booty though. I think it was always something in the middle that was holding it up. It may have been the vents/hoses keeping you from getting it off. Make sure those are disconnected. Here's a pic of where all the screws should be but it sounds like you got them all.

    Where did your Datsun take you today?

    We were out chasing the Icee van on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood

    Red 1980 210 in Wilmington LKQ. Front and back windshields are gone as is quarter glass. Fairly stripped inside. Grille was busted. Body was fairly decent. A few dents here and there but nothing terrible. Had weird taillights on it. It’s an automatic. Didn’t get any pics but here’s a couple from their site.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    Ok kids I need help. I'm thinking about changing Stanley's seat covers. If anybody with a 210 sedan has original covers can you post pics or just send them directly to me of your seats front and back? I went through this entire thread again to see if seats were posted and really only found one. I also found a site that showed pics of a very mint 210 hatchback which is where I got the below pics from. I'm digging this and am thinking vinyl with tweed. But before I completely make up my mind I'd like to see what else is out there that is stock.

    Oh I would've ripped someone a new hole if it had been more than what they said. It was already expensive. It came out nice though.

    I went down there with Stanley and showed them what I had. Shit was expensive but it was done right and it fit back in perfectly. I also received a written estimate. I didn't have any problems dealing with anyone. They were all quite nice. Just know that it does take a while. I think they had mine for 3 months but I did get it to them before the holidays of Thanksgiving and Xmas.

    I had mine done at Just Dashes. It came out pretty good. I was a little disappointed that they couldn't quite match the color of my interior but overall a good job. They'll cut the tax if you pay cash.
