  1. That's a very Bond style center panel.....touche! I will be rooting for Jenna. Go for the gold!!!
  2. There are lines running from the top of each float that allow for any over flow. I guess you could return them to the tank if you like. Mine are just hanging down. Just make sure they don't end up any where near the exhaust manifold :D
  3. Your attention to detail is stellar. This thread is gonna be on my watch list for sure.
  4. Today I had a sit down with the new general manager at the shop the restoration work was done at. The previous manager was fired for his conduct. It all makes sense now and the shop is willing to make all the issues with my car right. Once I'm ready, in the coming spring, they'll get the car in the garage and get it fixed up.
  5. Wow...looks like another one saved. Well done. Oh...and a pink 510 would be awesome!
  6. Okay it's been a while but I'm not slacking off.....it's just f'ing cold out. Today it was -9 with a wind chill that made it feel like -15. But here's some pics of my 510 sleeping in the garage............ I still have a few smaller projects in mind to keep me working on it so I don't get lazy. Hopefully I'll have pics of that in the new year. Merry Christmas.
  7. This sucks! I hope you get it back in one piece. What a-hole steals a guys car a week and a half from Christmas? Seriously!!!
  8. Sounds as if you're have wiring issues. I'm by no means an expert, but I would look over your wiring loom for any melted and/or burnt wiring. Something you might want to try first is to by-pass the ignition switch and see if you can turn the truck over at least. If the wires were smoking there's a good chance there is a short some where or even bigger issues. Just my 2 cents but I could be wrong. I have a 510 not a 620 truck. Good luck and don't give up yet. There must be a bunch of guys who can help you sort out this issue on Ratsun. Stay focused and all will fall into place.
  9. Nicely done!!!! Good save. When you're done this thing will be a show stopper. All the hard work has paid off. :thumbup:
  10. I just want to thank you Ben for following up on the 5 3/4 lighting systems. If I had the extra money right now, I would have already had my order in. As it is I'll have to wait until February. Doesn't really matter though, the snow has already started to fly up here in The Great White North. My Datsun is tucked in to my garage for the winter under it's blanky. I have plenty of time to work on installing these when I order them in early 2014. Cheers.
  11. This is a super, insane long shot but here it goes...Just today I was driving west bound on Bovaird Dr. W in Brampton Ontario Canada and spotted something I could not believe. I was stunned, I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Coming the other way was what looked like a red Datsun 2 door 510 sedan. Once it went by I knew it was for sure. I was so shocked I had to look back a few times. It was lowered on what looked to be 15" rims. Black centers with machined aluminum lips. Red paint job that looked newish. Looked to be the 70's grill and lights. It was almost the twin of my car. I thought about turning around and chasing the guy down but I had the car loaded with stuff and two 9.5 L gas cans full of high octane fuel for my 510. I was going home to put the gas in and prep it for winter storage in the garage. If any one knows anything about this car, please let me know. As far as I know I'm the only 510 owner in this neck of the woods and I have never, ever seen another. Even before owning one I don't ever recall seeing one in the greater Toronto area. Obviously no oics, I was not prepared to see that at all. Crazy!!!!
  12. ^^^^ :rofl: Apparently in Kyburz, you can never be too sure whether you're coming or going.
  13. How the hell do you open a build thread with no build in it? IBTL.
  14. You aint seen nothin yet!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQL7ZD-vsfI
