  1. I've had a lot of good feedback about the colour. I'm pretty pleased with how it looks.
  2. I'm sure that's correct. When I pulled it off the square edges and rotated it to mimic the motor turning the went up and then down if I spun it either way. The other way the went down then up both ways.
  3. I had a wee play and you're right. When it's on the correct way around, it goes the correct way irrespective of the direction the motor spins. Just gave it all a strip down and regreased all the mechanisms. Squeaky wipers totally suck. Pic for thread* *my truck is RHD fwiw, so the wiper motor is on the left side.
  4. My 620 is freshly painted. I'd like to put the heater cowl panel back on. (For keeps) but dirt I need to know which way the wiper motor arm goes on. It can go on in one of two positions. Pointing up, or pointing down. I know from other datsuns if it's on the wrong way up the wipers wipe downwards instead of up. And I'm still a little way from being able to power it up and see which way the motor spins. Can someone check theres for me? Must be plenty of fellas here with 620s in bits they can check?
  5. And shes back home. Painter still needs to shoot the bonnet. And he'll come back and buff out a "paint depth indicator" when he drops the Bonnet off. I'm pretty happy with the results.
  6. Back in the booth today. Just the bonnet to go now!
  7. Good news and bad news. He shoveled on a huge amount of paint, and it came up amazing with F- all orange peel. But after it was baked, some runs showed up. Hes pretty gutted, since he spent 8 hours blocking the cab down yesterday filling all the standing Mark's etc. Also when he unmasked it, it put a wee smear in the roof. So I left it at his work, and hes going .redo it again tomorrow. The light in his spray booth doesnt do the colour justice. (They affectionately refer to that booth as "the dungeon" where he works) but here's a few pictures anyway.
  8. Got these pics sent to me yesterday arvo. And as I post this, it's back in the booth getting the final colour baked. In about 45 mins I'll get shooting round to a mates ace to borrow a car trailer, and ill be collecting it!
  9. Pictures are out of sequence now, but these are the pictures he sent me weekend before last.
  10. Now I get a nervous wait for a picture update. It's taking all my self control not to go pay him a visit. But I'll only slow him down.
  11. The right hand side door is so clean you can see the bonnet in the reflection of the paint. That would have been done last weekend too, but it he said it wasnt quite up to his standard. Which is awesome I guess. (Untill I gotta pay the bill! Lol)
  12. Took a day off work today, and exhumed my 620 from the shed, and dropped it off at the paint shop. I'm fizzing so hard I wanted to share. Old mate should get it sprayed this weekend. He made a really nice job of the doors last weekend.
  13. Did you get the ld20t where you are?
  14. I like the 350cfm holleys (despite their tendency to leak) I swapped from a 32/36 Weber to a 350cfm, and it used a fraction of the gas. There was a bit of faffing about to get it set up right. But I ended up getting it running g 11.8:1 @WOT, and mid 14:1's at cruise.
