  1. Is there still a desire to have N320 tail light bezels made? I know Clause Studios made lenses at one time so they prob have a mold.

    It's the closest to factory I could find just wish they were a little narrower. Thanks Steve for the kind words!

    Thanks! It was one of those things that felt impossible at first but feels good to figure out. I cleaned up and repainted your jack set--it's looking assembly line fresh. Thanks for hooking that up.

    I did my headliner this weekend and got new shoes. I'm paying someone to do my visors and should pick them up later this week.
  5. I hope he gets his $$ for it but since I started my project I've gone off the rails picky. I'm not sure I could buy someone else's project unless it was pretty bone stock.

    Do you have a pic? As far as I know there are only 4x 1" cab floor holes. 2x by the fronts of the doors, and 2x right under the front of the seat.

    Steve that elbow looks great! Jake, who's 3D printing the steering boots said he'd also do that elbow if enough people are interested. Does anyone know if that elbow is used on other Datsuns? Roadsters maybe?

    I've heard good things about that firewall kit and I'm about to buy one. I was shocked at how much engine noise that steering column boot cut out and I'm excited to get a little noise dampening. That guy also makes the cards you posted for footwells. Maybe he could combine shipping and save you some $. Not sure about the heater hose.

    Did another steering column test fit and this one is staying put. I cut a slit in the but as marked below, pushed it through from the cab side, then worked it into place. I was getting a little squeaking from rubbing on the shift rod so I fingered in a little grease. I'll dress up the steering column hole and slits with a little black RTV. I'm super happy with how it turned out. When I decided to pull my cab and bed off this piece of rubber and the wing window gaskets weren't available. I'm beyond thrilled to see these two parts come into existence. Huge thanks to Jake and Conner for helping make these happen. Jake on here will start selling these puppies soon so keep your eyes out.

    Stoff those look great! Love that stance. I know folks on here like whitewalls but I'm gonna go black. I went with the factory grey green color because it has an industrial look and when I think early 60s I think industrial. Especially since it's not an N model and has the box of a bed. I've come to love the details and I feel like a tall, narrow, bias ply light truck tire is in the spirit of the truck. I'm gonna with these:

    Dashboard just has maybe 8 or 10 bolts. The steering wheel and column cover have to come off. The front edge of the dash nests down in a ridge so it has to lift up and out. Pro tip do all your wiper assembly stuff with the dash out. Ask me how I know.
