    Yep, Brain fart here, what year is yours robopineapple? Those ( thankfully) went away early in the 70's...( Although Datsun/Nissan didn't have very good electronic ignition in the beginning. I member a $350 module ony first and only Maxima! They were notorious for dying early.

    If yours is a swap, careful, the resistor is to lower the current to the points, yours may not have a need for that so if you do install it, it will be lower current than you need.

    I feel like this car isnt a Datsun ( The 810/maxima )

    We had a 79 810 wagon, loved it. Got totalled, bought an 83 Maxima wagon for replacement, hated it...super gutless ( I'm sure 810 5 speed vs. Maxima auto trans was most of it).

    I'm good with the pics. Like I said, good to see progress on an A-10 of any nature, dn few of us out there!

    Probably, BUT it's nice to see project progress, especially on weeks I haven't made any myself that week(s). It has also been a good resource for him and I during questions. Just my two cents worth. I personally don't check the build threads, almost nothing on A-10's.

    See if you can find an original paint book, OR a piece big enough for them to use a "UV LIGHT GUN" on. Good paint store can match it based on a sample piece... certainly close enough for a complete job.

    You certainly can, just find an actual auto paint store, they'll be able to cross it, or you can just bring in a gas cap cover or whatever and they can " gun it" and match it. If you're not sure about painting i suggest " one step"( clear and color together) if not most paint now is " base coat, then clear coat". Good luck feel free to ask any questions on that, that's one of my funnest classes, I'll post pics of my paint color soon, super cool phase shifting, custom mixed white/purple...good luck on the paint, put LOTS on ( then you can fix any problems) and don't rush it, good paint is 95% prep work...
