    LED headlights

The biggest benefit (besides better light) was less power draw. You would still have to purchase the Hella E-Code lights, so.... this is not the cheap way to do it, but it works great. http://www.rallylights.com/h5006-hella-5-3-4-round-e-code-hi-lo-conversion-headlamp-kit.html http://www.rallylights.com/h5001-hella-5-3-4-dia-h1-e-code-conversion-high-beam-headlamp-kit.html ....

    LED headlights

    FWIW I installed Hella halogen H1/H4 retrofits a year ago, then recently swapped the bulbs to LED's from Amazon. They work great. Im all LED now. .

    Mine now ('74 Cactus Green)

    No, sorry. But it was the original output, on the drivers side of the tank, towards the front about 7/8's of the way down from the top of the tank. The PO removed the hard lines. I replaced all the lines. Here a pic of the tank from some dude that was selling on Ebay, I think it is a "78, so its a little different than mine and there was no shot of the outlet. .

    1972 PL620 Paint Codes?

    Sorry, I could still read my paint code label. But for what its worth - I went to www.Automotivetouchup.com and they mixed up a touch up pen and a bottle brush to my code and it was pretty darn close. I recommend. BTW, they actually show 3 whites on their website for 1972 Datsun

    They are high pressure rubber lines. Out of the stock outlet of the tank thru a 20 micron Wix filter to the inlet of the pump (remounted lower than the outlet) and out of the pump. tied along the frame up to the fuel rail. Then out of the fuel pressure regulator and back down the same path to an unused vent line on top of the tank. I used the high pressure hose clamps where they attached to metal fittings. .

    Replacement Stereo?

    I did a Retrosound "Hermosa" with the Volkswagen knob kit. I enlarged the stock faceplate opening very slightly it fits pretty good. I used a silver paint marker to refresh the letters. It comes with Bluetooth, USB and 1/8" inputs, I extended them with the lighter conversion kit. I'll probably end up pulling them out because I never use them. I just stream via bluetooth. It also does Bluetooth phone, I mounted the mic on top of the steering column. When it is off, it looks like an AM radio, but when turned on the display shines thru - there area variety of sticker/screen protectors to choose from. It has 50w - so it could power speakers on it's own. I added the sub/amp combo to get a little more low end. It fits behind the seats on a regular cab.

    In case anyone is interested, I learned a few things on the fuel system...I installed a new Airtex fuel pump. I noticed it is the exact same pump as the Aerormotive 1109 pump. The Airtex is $64, https://www.summitracing.com/parts/atx-e8445the Aeromotive one is $172 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aei-11109/overview/... I had an old one and dug it out to compare. In hindsight I probably should have sent the airtex pump - but for $64 I thought I'd give it a try. I always thought the engine ran really rich. When I was tracing down problems I installed a fuel pressure gauge under the hood and found out the 100 psi Walbro pump was overpowering the stock fuel pressure regulator and I was getting almost 70 PSI at the injectors and it needed to be 32 at Idle and 41 at WOT (my FPR is brand new). I swapped the Walbro for for the Airtex pump which only puts out 55psi max and bingo the pressure was right within spec. The truck has never run better and when I looked up the stock 240SX pump it was rated at 55psi. Airtex/Aeromotive comparo:

    All my problems were related to my super fancy carbon fiber intake tube rubbing the dizzy 12v wires to the point they melted a hole in the intake tube and scorched the wires. Nice. I like causing my own problems!!! I replaced the noisy pump anyways. Im re-doing the intake tube with some 2.5" brake cooling duct and a couple of roll bar clamps to keep it away from the dizzy. My carpet is getting jacked up and matted down, so I went back to Stock interiors and ordered floor mats, Since the original carpet kit was for a 720, I ordered 720 floor mats and they fit pretty good. Freshly washed - I finally found a set of blank Isuzu center caps for the front...I wish I could find a vintage set of Koni red shocks since they are so visible... Next project might be to add A/C...

    changing lowering blocks

    I had 3" blocks and swapped them out for 2". Something like this should work: https://www.amazon.com/Superior-13-1030-Universal-Blocks-Complete-Kit-Round/dp/B000GPT3O8/ref=pd_sbs_263_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000GPT3O8&pd_rd_r=P62WH05SKCX46YQJ5G2D&pd_rd_w=3WQ4R&pd_rd_wg=icxos&psc=1&refRID=P62WH05SKCX46YQJ5G2D

    "Still need to get knock sensor & intake Tube "... .....That "intake tube" is important to the operation of everything. The IACV needs metered air after the MAF for the engine to run correctly. Leaks in the intake will make it run like cr@p. Try some spray carb or MAF cleaner in the IACV also. Knock Sensor is $40 on rockauto.com FYI... .
