    What hard-to-find parts should I stash?

    You are missing Mazda. They have a company goal of offering "sporty" sedans and continue offer the manual trans in both the 3 and 6 i believe

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Post more stuff! I've watched my way through all three builds. Tartan and leather gets a huge thumbs up from me!

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Just got caught up on your Z build. I like your approach to both the work and the video style. I'm going have go back watch other builds now.

    It's Sloppy n Floppy - No... My Steering...

    Front lower control arm bushings requires pressing. Also often involves cutting off the bolt and installing a new one on each side. I install poly 2 piece bushings specifically on this one bushing because pressing a new one in is so incredibly difficult. I use factory style bushings everywhere else. However all my experiencev is on 4wd 720s, not sure how the 2wd setup varies.

    DATSUN HOTWHEELS (and some other ones)

    Those are great. I display my cars on tow trucks anyway.

    GA16DE RWD trans?

    Is that supercharger the one with electromagnetic clutch on it? So it can be run mad max style with a switch?

    Z24 intake manifold coolant passage sealing

    I've installed 3 or 4 fel pro gaskets dry on these intakes and been leak free for years at a time.

    What benefit are you trying to achieve? Just 4 link? Better to swap a 1st gen pathfinder axle. 6 lug, lsd, disc brakes if you want them, not a huge amount wider than 720 stock. Narrower for super tuck on the rims? Swap something leaf spring. Tell us your goal. If you have to ask how hard it would be to 4 link the truck, it's hard to assume you possess the skills to do the job. You need to correct place in three dimensions all the mounts, likely after building them from scratch, then weld everything well enough you're not a death trap.

    Replacement Stereo?

    I'm too cheap for retro sound, but i did just find this i might try. Cheap enough of it doesn't fit no biggie. https://www.ebay.com/i/122666937160 My plan is actually to take it apart and see if i can relocate the inputs and fit it behind my stock radio plate and Datsun labeled screen, but who knows.

    That's why you lower the oil pan, to provide clearance for the cover to go in without damaging the head gasket.

    Pulling trans need guidance

    Out the bottom is brutal. I've done a number of 720 clutches and only once did it out the bottom. Every other time I've pulled the engine. As counter to good reason as it sounds, it really is the better option to pull the engine.

    Very nice! My 510 wiring adventure definitely didn't go that smoothly. :) And those gauges are nice. Now go race this against Statutory Grape!

    Low tail lamp 720 DATSUN

    So far as i know all ST came out 84+. I don't know about the Nissan/Datsun names by year specifically. I don't believe black was a factory color either. None of this is doctrine, just what i recall.
