  1. Question as I am not in the know, is the pillar "SSS" badge on backwards? I saw another coupe like this so I am curious if they are supposed to match the angle of the pillar, or always sloping down left to right? (meaning passenger side emblem matches angle of pillar, while drivers side does not)
  2. Thanks for clarifying Michael!!!! Will you ever do a Ratsun build thread on your car?? I love seeing updates on IG but would love to hear the story.
  3. For what its worth I just checked mrbigtanker thread and his firewall VIN is H510-000422 on a true 1800sss. Either way got myself a coupe shell and can't wait to build it 🙂
  4. I am VERY familiar with that article. Brilliant. I thought the same thing which is why I was perplexed when seeing the coupes. From his article the data plate appears to only show the H510 also..............hmmmm I guess the data plate could be a sedan. i am sure we will get to the bottom of this. It is pretty obvious my shell is a coupe........ Photo_10b by five1oh2010, on Flickr

  8. Just heard from a friend that has a true 1800sss that JDM shells were VIN'd H510 or P510 while out of japan (for instance south africa) would be KP or KH I am open to others opinions of course.
  9. all of the coupe shells I have seen started with P510 or H510 even though they are known to be KP510 and KH510. Carter - can you shed any light from your coupes???

  12. So while I was up looking at the cars I had NO intention of buying lol........however I managed to snap a ton of pics of the condition of the shell. It spoke to me due to the VIN as already mentioned and the original paint. There is quite a bit of rust but from what I can tell the majority is in the floors and won't be seen lol. No clue when I will take care of it so progress will likely be slow. Should I finish the 69 quickly and can sell for decent money that is when things will take off 🙂 For now enjoy pictures of RUST!

  13. missing TONS of parts. Also bunch of rust lol. mostly floor pans, will post pics shortly. No need for AC but thanks 🙂 I couldn't afford to buy one at your level LOL. Goal is to keep all 4 rhd. Reason I need to sell the white 69
  14. It does look that way, huh? They are actually the exact same dimensions from the hood and trunk line down! The only difference on the bottom half is the structure inside the rear interior panels to allow for panels that have armrests inside the body structure....other than that they are identical (obviously taillight openings are different as well as no rear side markers and different front markers, fender mirrors, etc.) but SHAPE is the same! The low roof line and slanted back window totally changes the look of the car.
  15. I finally decided it was time to get me a coupe.................hence the reason white 510 is going stock. As you may know James brought over 4 more shells from Japan recently and I have had at least 2 previous deals fall through because I got cold feet. James let me come up and see the cars first and I almost got cold feet again. I left thinking its not my time yet....... again..............well after sleeping on it and negotiating I was able to work a deal. I didn't take the cleanest shell by any means but got suckered into the VIN #. Plans are to pull the coupe parts from cactus green and replace them with sedan parts. Use the drivetrain I recently acquired from Red and suspension and brakes I acquired for the white car. First order of business is to replace metal panels then decide if I want a beater runner or get the shell painted first. I have almost everything I need to finish it with the exception of the "coupe" script emblems.

Emblems and mirrors 🙂 Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr Untitled by five1oh2010, on Flickr I will be using these BRE parts along with the LZ22 motor and KA 5 speed I got from Red.
