    My car is currently sporting a fiberglass valance from a '70, I'd like to get the 69 version so it fits the small turn signal/ parking lights better.


  2. Carter, that cleaned up really nicely! I need to poke holes in my headliner for seatbelts too, but I'm very nervous about it!
  3. And, Hainz, I'm still running that 4.11 ring and pinion I got from you, it's a great match for the SR.
  4. Yes I do! I still need to get my alignment dialed in, but the handling seemed pretty good during my test drive.
  5. ok, fast forward 7 years, and its finally almost done. There's still a ton of little stuff left to do, but I was able to take it for a test drive yesterday!

    Looking for a set of 510 steering knuckles that take the 14mm pin.


  7. Some updated pics from the body shop, its progressing much faster than I had expected. They're just about ready for primer - I've been really impressed with the quality of the work, it is looking great. I also revised the water outlet to include a boss for a water temp sensor to make it easier to hook up aftermarket gauges (thanks to Kelvin for the idea):
  8. I've also been tinkering with my micro sized CNC. One of the tricky things about installing an SR in the 510 is the limited clearance between the water outlet and radiator inlet. The water outlet comes off the drivers side of the head towards the very front of the motor and then snakes under the CAS. This is what the stock outlet looks like: After longer than I would like to admit, I drew this up in CAD and then programmed a machining strategy for it. It'll be cut from a 2.25" x 3.25"round slug of aluminum. This should make the radiator plumbing much easier and cleaner too.
  9. At first I had really wanted to do ALL of the work on my car. When I started getting into the bodywork and realized how terrible I was at it my plans changed :) The car is in excellent hands at the bodyshop and I'm so glad I handed this part of the project off to the professionals. I have some updated pics and the progress looks fantastic! The engine bay where I had cut out the battery tray was a mess, looking much better now! The passenger side needed a lot of work - when I first tore into it I discovered the previous owner had put about an inch of bondo over some existing body damage. I dug that out, hammered it back into shape using the drivers side as a template, redid the wheel well and bonded the flare on. The finish work is looking great!
  10. It's the harbor freight mini-mill - it's pretty weak, but it'll do for small jobs. Ben
  11. Back from the dead! It's been two years since I last updated my thread, and I'm ashamed to say that not much has happened since then... UNTIL NOW! A friend of mine now owns a body-shop, and this was the sign I needed. My car has been languishing in the bodywork phase for far too long and its time to hand it off to a professional. I don't have any pics right now, but I'll update as soon as I have some. It'll be about 2 months before I have the car back, but in the meantime I have plenty of work to do gathering parts and getting everything prepped. It's good to be back!
  12. Quick update: I haven't done much in the past 6 months, I've slowly been working on the rear fenders a little more, and I replaced my rusted out rocker panel section. I've also been working on an aluminum crank pulley on the side. When I get sick of the body work, I do a little machining to make it more interesting :) Here's a pic showing the rocker panel section being welded on. I borrowed a bending brake from a friend and after a few tries I was able to make a section that's darn close to the original. Here's a pic of the rocker panel welded to the car: And here are some pics of making the crank pulley. Since the SR20 oil seal rides on the crank pulley I'm making a steel sleeve so the oil seal won't wear away the aluminum. They'll be about a .0015 press fit, the crank pulley went into the freezer last night, and the sleeve will go into the oven. The pulley The sleeve:
  13. Yep, that's the guy alright. I had a spare window so that's fixed, needs a clutch really really bad, EI dizzy, and a drivers side floor.
  14. I picked up this banged-up 510 on a whim, but I don't really know what to do with it. Its got damage on almost every panel, its been rear ended and front ended and it has some serious rust in the drivers side floor. It's never going to be a nice showcar, but I think its still too good to part out. I'm thinking lower it, hammer out some of the dents and fix the rust, and spray it flat black? Maybe do a motor swap? It would be fun to have a little rat rod to bomb around in. Anyways, here's some pics: Caved in passenger door shattered rear quarter and crunched tail light panel Its a mess under the hood, but I drove it home!
  15. I'll check my parts bin tonight and let you know if i find one.
