  1. Had 3 720s back in the day. My daily was a slammed pink mini 720 with blue ghost flames and snug top walk through. LZ24 4 speed. drove the shit out of that truck. Pics are in my photo album b4 digital Keep up the good work
  2. Waiting on Longchamps 15x7. and Recaros Aint ya mommas daily driver, fond memories of old builds
  3. Interior time: I even brushed a coat of Lizard skin on the inside of this divider panel Old crappy rear quarter panel vinyl, going to replace with new. Not an upholstery guy but seems straight forward. I washed the seats with Oxy clean and pretty happy, no need to reupholster them Found these at a swapmeet 5 years ago rechromed quarter window latches, sexy
  4. Digging through my collection, NOS mirrors, NOS running lights, new eye brow rubber, new door handles. Actually starting to run out of stuff. Bought anew lock set from Thailand, but the lock set is actually 4 door locks and no gas door or trunk lock. time to mod some new shit. I've always loved BMW headlights
  5. On with it boy Went with my last set of NOS taillights, and well worth it I really wan to drive this one, until someone makes an offer I can not refuse haha So more Lizard Skin complete floor. and inside of quarters and doors Time to assemble doors, hinges, and get these doors to line up. Taping aka cleaning paint and crap out of tread holes. Wire wheel bolt treads clean. Small steps that make a huge difference when assembling everything Happy hot mother fucker Bolted up the hood and shit don't fit. looks like a hinge has been pushed in 1/4 of an inch. Polishing trim parts This is always fun finding new parts to add to the build. headlight adjusting screws Here's the number if ya need them Wow, now its all coming together
  6. Picked up from Roberts Shop, And a few things broke. Not Roberts fault, just part of breaking the car in, no pun intended. Again a bit disappointed with new parts not working after 20 miles. I chose to buy new parts to limit shit failing. Once a few more tiny details were taken care of, I did the 2+ hour drive to Winters Some things just need the new owner to dial in. Gauges worked then stopped working. WTF THE END
  7. Ginger came by and helped make her run, he also builds Troy Ermish's 510s. Smart fucker this one. Made a tool to prime the L18 A number of parts FAILED from rockauto. Clutch master cylinder, fuel pump, starter. hoping the best for the rest. Relocated the fuel filer, trying to clean things up. Modified the latch area, seems the new hood shocks might be to powerful. Looking into other options. I've used, used hood shocks and they work great, but wear out soon. new ones change hood alignment. Muffler shop time Starting to look good again Car wash, why not Back in Datsunville Next step Alignment shop. Successful drive back from the Alignment shop. Got to many things going on to dial the last 5% of this build in. So I towed it to Robert Brock (the guy responsible for me getting my 1st 510 in 1989). He said he would gladly finish it off.
