  1. DIY Custom stainless exhaust. First time welding my own exhaust. And before you roast my welds, I really don't care if you think they're bad. Its called learning. Magnaflow free flowing muffler test fit. These are old pictures. The exhaust sounds sweet and turned out good.
  2. Black betty is dismantled. I have the engine swap and 5 speed for sale. Car shell itself is pending sale
  3. I was fortunate enough to find some factory wing mirrors at an affordable price, just by being at the right place at the right time.Install photos:
  4. Back in May 2020 I was able to get the dash installed. In this pandemic I was able to get lots of work done on the car being in self-isolation.More pictures and updates to come.Regarding the dash, I had years ago installed some LED lights and they are working great. I also highlighted the round gauge bezels with some gold.I am not planning on using the radio for either a radio or CD player. I have some radio delete plates I custom 3D printed that I am going to install similar to what I did on my previous Project Avocado 1200 coupe.
  5. Mine and many non usdm models have staked u joints which are non serviceable
  6. Poor black betty getting no love. I will start working on you soon, I promise.
  7. Your work is highly commendable, good job on the car, keep it going.
  8. I got shafted today by the driveshaft shop. They informed me my u joints are non-serviceable, which was apparently my bad luck as Datsun/Nissan did this to a fair few model cars including my Datsun B120. Need to have it all remade custom. Or get another one from Australia which probably also has worn u-joints for around the same price, LOL
  9. Next order of business - seats. Seats seats seats. I have been through 1,2,3,4? Sets of seats trying to get the right fit in my 1200 ute/sunny truck. Nothing seems to work as well as stock seats and I cannot find stock seats in the USA unless people are junking them from their imported car which usually happens on the other side of the country and shipping is cost prohibitive. I could have brought seats back with me from Aus, but they wouldn't have fit in my carry-on LOL. 1st seats were stock USDM coupe seats which were way too thick 2nd seats were ebay cheapies which were too skinny
  10. usually they can't comprehend RHD at the gas station. In my state they are full service. But for my own sake I'm gonna always fill up across the state border so I can pump the gas myself and not have it spill all over my interior by some other idiot.
  11. I got a motorcycle style push to lock type fuel cap. Otherwise you are right it would stick up and cause the door not to close. This one is okay though since its relatively flush.
  12. For budgetary and time restrictions I have decided to put the turbo and accessories related to turbo on HOLD.Therefore i decided to go back to a carburetored setup. Twin Dellorto DHLA 40. Purchased a manifold setup from Japan.Before the pandemic I was able to get the following completed:Radiator swapPurchased modified and installed headers. The headers needed adjustment to clear the intake manifold and the left engine mountRadiator hoses installed. I went with a metallic bendy hose setup and painted them copper to match my headersHeater hoses installed.Headers wrapped and painted with high tem
