    My car is leaking water bad through the rear window. I have a new aftermarket gasket I want to install. Since I have it out I'd like to get a window with rear defrost so I can wire that in. So annoying in the winter time. I know someone has one in their rafters they would like to sell to me Thanks guys!

    $60.00

  3. Some pics from the last month or so.
  4. Yep! Did that for years. Just recently spent 500 bucks at Waytek and bought a bunch of 1,000 ft rolls. I bought all the common stripped wires needed in KA and SR swaps. Black with white stripe Black with Red stripe Black with yellow stripe Red with black stripe solid white Solid red Solid brown and a bunch more.
  5. Have you ever had a SR 510? I've tried them all. Hands down best mod is SR :) I had a Nissan V8 for a bit. Planned on swapping it into a 510 for a drift 510. My buddy who is a super amazing drifter talked me out of it. Said it will ruin the balance. He also said it takes some of the fun out of it having so much torque. He said it's to easy!! haha.
  6. Having my coupe done it's interesting to be able to swap from driving a NA SR to a turbo SR. Pretty hard to sell yourself on less power. My tan car feels like a turd after cruising the turbo coupe around. Boost tricks your mind though, since power isn't throttle dependent like a NA motor. a 1/4 throttle can be max power if you are on a hill. Also you can always put the old L motor back in for those guys that worry about being original or resale.
  7. Rad videos and story! I love seeing that kinda stuff. I got into 510's in the late 90's (when I was getting old enough to drive) it's funny to think back on that time. All my friends.... "why do you want such an old car!" All these years later and to them it's now normal for me to drive a 510 haha And now they are 50 years old. Cool to see so many nice ones at the track. I bet that Vett was on slicks. I know those kinda track guys. Hard to beat and unlimited budget thats for sure.
  8. Why? Engine swaps make the 510 such a nice driver. It's awesome to go out every morning no matter the season and have the car fire up perfect let alone the fact is has more power.
  9. You've been tinkering with electric power steering? Do tell!!!
  10. There is a local datsun guy about to delete his emissions stuff. Need the parts?
  11. Also in a 510 it helps to not have the jack stands on the crossmember. If you get some chunks of 2x4 and put the stands on the lip of the rear floor or somewhere sold this will allow you to tip the crossmember which helps.
  12. You'd think that but over the years I've ran across a lot of 510's with a added push button even when the key works.... I remeber a wagon with two keys. One did the column and the other started the car..... 50 years of people keep cars on the road is a long time for interesting mods. I once found a switch cut into the dash harness to cut all power to the key, just a switch, no relay, no easy way to reach it. Odd. Took me forever to find it! So tucked away.
  13. Not original wires. My guess is someone added a push buttom for starting the car. Does the key crank the engine? If it doesn't go through a plug on the other side of the firewall (under the dash) like all the other wires it's definantly an add on.
  14. I want to try and electric column in this one. So I can compare it to my other 510 with the hydraulic steering.
  15. It's a driver! Needs some things sorted out but I can and have been driving it around all week. Well today I took my tan 510 to work for a change, it's also fun to compare them since they are very different. Coupe needs power steering next. Manual steering makes the car feel less sporty I've decided. first trip!!
