    Build is looking great, I hope that you get it running soon ! If the Nismo gasket leaks also, i think that you're head might be crooked from pulling it apart. Good luck and keep doing the good work, this topic is great way to get motivated before leaving to the garage.

    Hi. No paint on the bottom yet, and might not be for a while.. I want to test fit all the parts that bolt in to bottom of the car before painting it, just to make sure that i don´t have to drill or weld anything after the painting. So here's whats has happened. Found pair of OMP RS2 seats in good condition for only 350 euros, these are not FIA approved anymore but will go for the first two summers for practicing. Also bolted the trans on it's place so could also test the shifter. I'm happy to tell you that I dont have to make a remote shifter, just dont like how they look.. Assembled rear discs and calipers so could test fit the handbrake wires, just need to buy a pair of seat brackets more so i can where the passenger seat goes before i can install the lever. These arrived factory fresh from Italy this week, they might be a bit overkill but atleast i know that the car will stop in the future! Tarox B280 six point calipers. I'm hoping to use wilwood 11x0.81" discs with these, they should fit but if not I will go with 10.75" disc. So yeah not much but something. I'm looking for a R180 4.11 diff with "K", if someone has one to sell send me a pm or comment here.. Next thing is to order brake disc centers & some other stuff from DPracing and fit the front brakes in, then I'm going to need some rubber on my wheels because those brakes wont fit into those 13" steel wheels anymore. Also trying to start to build the engine soon. Thanks for reading my topic, all the tips are welcome!

    APracing calipers / rotos, anyone?

    Yeah but APracing dosent have bolt on kit for 510 so those hubs need to be custom made. I have a friend who could make those so I'm just asking if anyone else has done it before so they might have the blueprints ready witch would save hours of time in planning.

    Looks great! I'm using 15/16" master cylinder with brake booster and have been a little afraid how long it's gonna be. I'm glad to see that someone else is also having a long booster / cylinder setup so there's a change it can work! Are you going to use a master cylinder brace like this? https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/510/brake-master-cylinder-brace-datsun-510 Keep up with the good work!

    Hi. I'm planning to use APracing calipers and 280mm discs on my 510 racecar build. Question is that is anyone here using APracing discs? I need to get disc bells / centers so if some one has any blueprints for those please help! -Jarno

    Something to share.. Hi, not much happened but here's something. Test fitted new rear brakes and the wheels, 14" wheel clears those 258mm discs nicely. I'm trying to go with 280mm in the front. Made some reinforcement weldings over the body, still going to do some to wheel wells & frame. Bought this nice Mikuni intake like I told in the earlier post. There's also the 219 Head wich came with the L18 engine. Next thing is to get the seat, test fit it to its right place so I can make sure that the steering wheel will be at the good height. After that i will fit the s13 handbrake lever and wires on their places, then i think im ready to paint the bottom of the car and assemble everything back in for the last time.

    Hi! I can sell a pair. The Price is 350 euros + shipping. Really dont want to give the dimension, my friend spend 20+ hours to do those and I paid him over 500 euros for all that. If you're still interested send me a PM. Thank you! At the moment money is the only issue to get this forward but I'm trying to get that situation better!

    Happy new year! Yeah I got the Datsun back from the shop yesterday and i'm stoked to work on it again! So this it how it looks now. The guy also fixed twio rust spots under the windshield so i dont have to worry about those either. While assembling the rear suspension i noticed that my shocks are too short so i need to buy atleast 7cm (3") longer shocks to get the rear high enought. I'm not 100% sure what to do next but i'm pretty sure that i know it next week when i go to garage and start to think the next move. That's it for now!

    I made it! I'm sorry I forgot to take my camera to garage today so phone pics only but i will post some pics after my vacation but here's what has been happening. First, you can't get 11mm ball joints from Finland, I didn't have much time so i did some research and found a guy who was selling a set of steering knuckles for 14mm ball joint. I bought those and ordered 14mm ball joints from my friends car parts store. First problem down. My friend finally got the rear brake caliper brackets ready and I got my rear control arms back, first thing i did was to take the old bearings off and weld 3mm thick reinforcement plates where the shock bolts in. Next day I took all the rest of the suspension parts to sandblast and powder coat. I have to thank the company who did it they got all the parts ready in 24 hours! So then i got all the parts i needed, last Monday i went to the garage and assembled all the front suspension parts. On Wensday I assembled all the rear suspension parts and spend Thursday night welding a reinforcement bar under the trunk. On thursday night at 11pm the car was back on it's wheels and ready to go rollcage shop. Today me and my dad took the car to roll cage shop and it will be ready in the next two weeks, when i get it back I will take a little "break" from the project because I need to work more so i can save money for the new parts hah. I will do all the "free" stuff on the while. ( new handbrake assembly etc.) Now, in the next 10hours I will hop into a plane to Mexico and relax for 2 weeks! Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone!

    Hello! At the moment I'm in a bit of a rush. 510 is going to rollcage maker in four weeks so that means I have four weeks to get it back on it's wheels. Witch would not be a problem if I would have all the parts. At the moment I'm waiting for front wheel bearings to arrive and I'm going to order new balljoints tomorrow. My rear control arms are still at my friends CNC shop because he has been busy while doing other things than my brake caliper brackets. So in the next 4 weeks I need to: -Assemble the front & rear suspension -Weld reinforcement bar under the trunk -Weld seat fitting bars to passenger side -Get rest of the suspension parts sodablasted and painted So here's what been happening. Got some of the suspension parts from sodablast / paint, they look so good now! Front subframe & control arms testfitted. All the special spacers will be sodablasted/painted and I'm also going to buy new bolts and nuts. Box full of parts ready to be assebled. Swaybar got the "racered" color Yesterday we welded bars for seat brackets to driver side. I don't know if these are FIA spec but atleast in Finland you need to have these kind of bars for seat brackets (or fit the seat to OE seat holder) if you want to drive in real race. So yeah this is how the car looks like at the moment, had to test fit the seat with the pedals and steering wheel so we could get it right at the first time. That's it for now. Lets see how this turns out in the next four weeks!

    WHEELS ! If I haven't told it earlier i'm a wheelholic, so this is not going to be the first set of wheels I buy for this car. So these are 3piece Volk Rays Mesh with magnesium centers 14x6" ET12. I'm going to wrap 185/60 Toyo triple eights on these, perfect track day setup! Still not sure do I re-paint the centers but I'm going to brush the lips and add clearcoat on them. Also welded all the "waterholes (?)" and made one more rust fix.
