    Loren O's '72 521 -Found this out in the woods.

    So sad to see this. Glad to hear you're okay, but man, that sucks so much after all the blood sweat and tears you put into your sweet truck...

    What is your plan for wheels? I have a spare set of 5 spoke Titans if interested

    nice! That's a significant upgrade on the cast two piece Bergs. Great find. Love that style

    That looks like a much easier plan than tigwelding pads on the inside and then having to do all the paint repairs. Thanks! I'll likely just make up my own pads

    Yep- mine indeed does have the flat spot. I doubt there is anything substantial behind it though to anchor to

    SonDat- Bingo! I'm looking to add shoulder belts to my 521. After re-reading my post, I wasn't very clear

    So does your 72 already have the captive nuts in the door pillar? My 70 does not, and I'm casting about for ideas short of welding onto the inner pilar

    ka24e 521,d21 or 240sx exhuast?

    I used 240sx mani. I think there are differences between s13 and s14. I chose the s13 as I think its longer. The e brake bellcrank is definitely a problem. I cut mine out and converted to a 510 cable for the ebrake. I really wanted to keep the umbrella handle ebrake. Because I like doing things the hard way, I also wanted to keep the twin downpipes. This also posed a problem with the torsion bar. I ended up modifying the downpipe(s) with a bunch of pie cuts to get it to curl around the torsion bar and also to end up with optimal ground clearance. Most of the ones I've seen use a single downpipe off the stock manifold, which would def be easier
