  1. Jeez 12 years and I know I lurked for significantly longer before that. Where has the time (and cheap Datsun parts) gone to?
  2. Lol, I remember when that issue came out about 20 years ago or so as someone in my circle of friends bought it and passed it around to all of us degenerates.
  3. Oh and if anyone is curious someone is commercially making really nice vents already. https://www.ebay.com/itm/143964181649?hash=item2184ef1491:g:yBIAAOSwN3BgPFm5
  4. Badges you can find on ebay for about $40 in ok-ish condition. Sometimes you can find them cheaper on Aus ebay if you they are willing to do int'l shipping. I've even made repros a few times myself as I made a silicone mold for them, so if you can find or borrow one it is easy enough to make the others. Bumpers from Malaysia, but the front is the hardest to find (I have several rears but took a couple years to find a front). Probably $3-400 for a set. Brackets are an easy DIY as they are hard to find. The front grill is also from Aus as a repro, not expensive but shipping is killer for that and the few guys who deal in them didn't want to really do int'l shipping. You can also find a rear tail light garnish occasionally too. You can still get the tach off Ebay NIB for ~$100. https://www.ebay.com/itm/114935162051?epid=2299950401&hash=item1ac2ab64c3:g:eswAAOSwskphFyG2 Ebay link with rear bumper and badges, I have NOT bought from this guy. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?item=403196103135&_ssn=egyptn_0&_osacat=0&_odkw=&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313&_nkw=120y&_sacat=0 I got a bumper set and tail light garnish from this guy below: https://www.facebook.com/Brotherjo-Retro-Parts-Garage-Accessories-101595386696552
  5. Meh, I literally made this as a recombinant protein (RBD subunit) for detection antibody purposes back in mid 2020 (something like 50mgs of it). You can buy it even, not cheap but not bad (can be made way cheaper than that) and the adjuvants they use are cheap too (not the best but they do work). Nothing exotic or or unusual about this at all. Almost any molecular biology grad student or even some undergrads could do this without to much effort. We are talking barely above a science fair project level to make this. https://www.sinobiological.com/recombinant-proteins/sars-cov-2-cov-spike-40592-v08h115
  6. Yes, and the holes on the 1200 dash are very oblong so it is very much not an exact measurement. I suspect the majority of these were built by Hitachi for several applications and just some minor differences for brands. I'll try to get out to the shop and get a measure later for the 1200 and post it here.
  7. That looks very much like the 1200 one. If you take a measurement from center-to-center of the knobs and of the case it might help those who want to see if it fits.
  8. Only place that number (99993-0119) shows up is as an unknown radio, maybe 1200. But the number doesn't match both types: 99993-00132 Hitachi AM/FM Radio model A-1681 99993-00119 Hitachi AM/FM Radio model A-1581 http://www.datsun1200.com/modules/mediawiki/index.php?title=Radio
  9. "Ok, the day is coming if not here already when labs will be able to engineer a virus to accomplish specific goals." Already doable and not even all that hard to do for the more crude approaches.
  10. I'll give you the conspiracy theory version we will see from this: Omicron being another lab virus propagated in mice to be less lethal but easier to spread but purposefully leaked to fight the covid pandemic.
  11. Flag semaphore for N and D. Meant to represent "nuclear disarmament".
  12. Yikes, that number of severe side effects is very troubling. Also, watching the video it appears they are doing everything they can to limit who they pay out.
  13. Antigenic Original Sin and Antibody Dependent Enhancement: I choose you! Or: Why using leaky vaccines causes shit to get worse, i.e., things we already knew before all this happened. Short form, data coming out showing the vaxxed do worse when challenged by new variants. To the point of NEGATIVE vaccine efficacy, i.e., those who where vaccinated did worse than the unvaxxed. This puts you on a treadmill of needing a booster every month or so to stay "protected" as the effectiveness is only good for a short time (couple of months) and then drops to being WORSE. Of course no pharma company would ever set it up so that you have to take their product forever.... oh wait. https://www.chop.edu/centers-programs/vaccine-education-center/vaccine-safety/antibody-dependent-enhancement-and-vaccines https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/adhocs/14107coronaviruscovid19infectionsurveyukcharacteristicsrelatedtohavinganomicroncompatibleresultinthosewhotestpositiveforcovid19 https://dailysceptic.org/2021/12/22/triple-vaccinated-more-than-four-times-more-likely-to-test-positive-for-omicron-than-unvaccinated-data-shows/ https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.12.20.21267966v3 But wait there's more:
  14. Interesting article from Nov 2020 (also posted a systemic review of the literature for this for several other studies). Looks like if you have extremely high titers for Mumps it seems to be protective against Covid. https://journals.asm.org/doi/10.1128/mBio.02628-20 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8310886/ https://scitechdaily.com/new-proof-that-measles-mumps-rubella-mmr-vaccine-may-protect-against-covid-19/amp/ The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine has been theorized to provide protection against COVID-19. In a new study published today (November 20, 2020) in mBio, an open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, researchers provide further proof of this by showing that mumps IgG titers, or levels of IgG antibody, are inversely correlated with severity in recovered COVID-19 patients previously vaccinated with the MMR II vaccine produced by Merck. MMR II contains the Edmonston strain of measles, the Jeryl Lynn (B-level) strain of mumps, and the Wistar RA 27/3 strain of rubella. “We found a statistically significant inverse correlation between mumps titer levels and COVID-19 severity in people under age 42 who have had MMR II vaccinations,” said lead study author Jeffrey E. Gold, president of World Organization, in Watkinsville, Georgia. “This adds to other associations demonstrating that the MMR vaccine may be protective against COVID-19. It also may explain why children have a much lower COVID-19 case rate than adults, as well as a much lower death rate. The majority of children get their first MMR vaccination around 12 to 15 months of age and a second one from 4 to 6 years of age.” Within the MMR II group, mumps titers of 134 to 300 AU/ml (n=8) were only found in those who were functionally immune or asymptomatic. All with mild COVID-19 symptoms had mumps titers below 134 AU/ml (n=17). All with moderate symptoms had mumps titers below 75 AU/ml (n=11). All who had been hospitalized and required oxygen had mumps titers below 32 AU/ml (n=5). Titers were measured by Quest Diagnostics using their standard diagnostic protocol. “This is the first immunological study to evaluate the relationship between the MMR II vaccine and COVID-19. The statistically significant inverse correlation between mumps titers and COVID-19 indicates that there is a relationship involved that warrants further investigation,” said coauthor David J. Hurley, PhD, professor and molecular microbiologist at the University of Georgia. “The MMR II vaccine is considered a safe vaccine with very few side effects. If it has the ultimate benefit of preventing infection from COVID-19, preventing the spread of COVID-19, reducing the severity of it, or a combination of any or all of those, it is a very high reward low risk ratio intervention. Maximum seropositivity is achieved through two vaccinations at least 28 days apart. Based upon our study, it would be prudent to vaccinate those over 40 regardless of whether or not they already have high serum MMR titers.”
  15. There has been some research stuff like that, short answer yeah you can sort of do it but it takes so long and costs so much it is not at all feasible, yet. The implants are pricey but do actually function and last about as long as natural teeth these days.
  16. He knows if he wants to get reelected he can't go to far left. I'd say maybe he just has a spine too but he's a politician....

    Got a 1200 again

    Yeah, that specifically didn't occur to me but makes sense too. I kind of figured it might be something that if sitting on the ground it wouldn't move. It is a bit of a kludge of transmission/engine/clutch etc.. so I was just being safe when testing it initially.

    Got a 1200 again

    Update: It lives! Finally got a 510 driveshaft lengthened to fit it and the engine fired up. Engine runs but is a bit rough, probably a injector issue maybe, haven't torn into it to much aside from timing. Got some minor issues to work through as there is a bit of clutch drag (rear wheels turn in neutral when on jack stands) and a leaking heater core valve. Will dig into it and get it tuned in the coming months. Technically it currently is drivable.
  19. I'll take facts and stats over ad hominem attacks and appeal to authority.
  20. I had heard about this but those pictures are crazy. Hope all y'all in the area are dry and safe.
