    orange B110 coupe

    New. Every time I run a used one it doesn't seem to build good pressure. Last two builds I used this one. Works really good for $50. I wouldn't be scared to run a used one, just let it build pressure with the coil unhooked the first time you try to fire it. Just in case...

    '73 1200 Coupe Project, aka Timmy

    The original ones were made by a shop in Japan called Refresh60 (fairly expensive) but mine are replicas of those made by Classic Datsun in SoCal (they were less than $250 shipped as I recall). These look the same as mine, but a bit more spendy... https://www.ebay.com/itm/JDM-wide-over-KB110-B110-fender-flares-arch-fits-Nissan-Datsun-Sunny-1200-flare/161982301430?hash=item25b6e5c4f6:g:WCsAAOSwFnFV9BE5:rk:4:pf:0 These look like a good fit, and for a slightly better price too... https://www.ebay.com/itm/JDM-Pon-retro-Fender-Flares-wheel-arch-Metal-For-B110-Datsun-1200-2-d-sedan/183592016727?epid=18019706777&hash=item2abeefdb57:g:hIcAAOSwfshbA4NB:rk:1:pf:0

    710's unite!!!!!!!!

    Front - 185/60-14 Rear - 195/60-14 (or 205/55-14 but you may need to roll the fenders) This is presuming they are an offset that is good for the car. But also running a fair bit of stretch and poke. Which I love, but not everyone does (cue datzenmike).

    Rack and pinion exploration. Building a bolt in conversion

    VG33E from a Pathfinder, modified D21 intake to use a Holley 2bbl carb, modified L28E distributor, Z31 5spd trans. I did not. I went front sump so the engine could be a little lower and a bit farther back. Also, it was easier to modify the crossmember for front sump than to custom build an oil pan for rear sump. Sorry, but that was 3 laptops ago. :)

    Datsun rear axle widths, B-310 and others

    Yes. There's a 510, and there's an A10. Period. The sooner people quit calling A10s a "510", the better. 😁 And I changed it to say A10. 😄

    '62 Falcon Econoline

    Nope. I was waiting until the doors were finished. 😊

    What have you done to your 1200 lately

    Side note, the only sporty blue seats I have found that do match are from a Honda S2000. Now, S2000s are already rare, and only about 10% of them came with blue interior, sooooo... Blue died out in the 80s with pretty much every automaker except Honda. They did a few blue interiors in the 90s, but most of those seats are cloth (except the S2000). They are durable though, so if you're okay with cloth maybe dig for those in the junkyard?
