    Holy cow! this is an awesome project!
  2. Ha. I'm doing a similar project with 2006 Miata parts and a 510. The giant brake booster and deleting the ABS system are both giving me headaches. I'm curious to see if the non-abs master helps. What all did you do to the ABS wiring? Are all the wheel sensors still hooked up and going to the ABS computer that you separated from the brake line block? I think I need the wheel sensors for the speedo to work.
  3. This project is looking awesome! Did you decide on what master cylinders to run? I had a hard time finding any sizing charts, but I heard you can contact tilton and get their recommendation for what bore you need.
  4. What kind of metal do you think theses headlight bezels are? I thought they were stainless, but maybe they are pot-metal? What do you use to weld it?
  5. Then cut a bunch of structural integrity out of the evo front end to make the 510 fenders fit: This car was never finished. These are the only photos I have ever seen of it. The owner sold it as an unfinished project in the UK.
  6. There are several major problems with this idea: …. you can see most of them in the following photos of the car mentioned above 1. The wheelbase of an evo is 3.4 inches longer than a 510 2 The width of the evo is at least 7 inches wider than a 510 3. the engine bay and strut towers are wider than a 510's engine bay 4. The rocker panels of the evo are structural, but they stick out wider than the 510 body None of these issues seem as important as what dashboard to use though …. so that should be the first thing to think about Then cut apart the entire 510:
  7. I think I had a 280zx 15/16" BMC in my 2dr 710, on the stock booster, and 280zx struts/brakes. The previous owner changed the reservoirs though, because the 280zx ones might not have fit. The brakes and pedal felt great. My 710 wagon had a 7/8" 280Z BMC with no booster, because of the KA24DE headers, and the brakes never felt "right". I think the 710 being 1400lbs heavier than a 510 makes a booster a good idea.
  8. That first grill is definitely a 710 grill … .. I'd love to have the birdshit goon, but hopefully it goes to a better home ?
  9. Your whole project is awesome!!! I have heard the same about the speedo not working without ABS on my 2006 Miata project. I have also heard I need a non-ABS master cylinder if I'm going to bypass the entire ABS system, but I don't know for sure.
  10. Thanks for doing all this Thomas. I clicked the "forgot password" a few times over the last two days, but today was the first day it worked and sent me an email.
  11. I had 2 big o-rings (I think 2" inner diameter), with packaging tape holding them to the strut. It looked like something techno toy tuning did when they built the coilover kit. The O-rings were about an inch above the perch and an inch below the gland nut.
  12. If you look closely you can see the center is isolated in a ring of rubber .. like a motor mount I can see how it could fail, but I've never heard of it ... everything below in red is rubber
  13. I liked #225's all around on my L16 510s .. I've heard 510's shouldn't run more than 225 in the back Maybe 250 front and 225 rear
