  3. can someone tell me what this ride is? @ 7:13 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UNJsfLCQWDM&feature=youtu.be&t=433 <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UNJsfLCQWDM?start=433" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  4. Registered here when I was looking to buy my current 510. Had been a lurker forever, but actually needed to ask a few questions. I've had a 260z and a goon prior but for the last 10 years if I had needed to RSVP to a datsun owners gettogether my response would have been plusnone.... 😢😕 I guess technically, I'd be a plus one, now! But doesn't have the same ring to it... Also, the dime is kinda my escape. My time away from wife, kids, work.... so plusnone?
  5. Happy New years to you as well. I owe you a response to your pm from a few days back, but I'll chime in here to your questions above as I've just gone through most of this (my project thread is in desperate need of an update...). I'd say if your interested in efi, then tune up your carb first so you have a reliable driver while you piece parts together and can have something to swap back on as you test the efi set up. When you're fully converted, you have a running carb and mani to sell... For the front end, source the 14 mm steering arms and go from there ( or drill out the ones you have? It's a tapered hole). 14 mm ball joints are available from many sources. As for all the other front end bits, rockauto. For the shortened strut, going to 280zx struts gets you larger (and more readily available?) wheel bearings, vented rotors and bigger calipers, and is already a shorter strut body by 1 1/2" if I remember. Unless your wheel won't allow the larger brakes no reason not to go 280zx. They pull the track width in a bit, but this might help depending on how low you are going and can be bumped back out with spacers if not desired) Im currently running 280zx struts but have a shorter insert as I will section those for another 1-2", there are spacers in the strut body for the insert until the sectioning is done. For the rear, if you are going lower you will benefit greatly from adding some adjustment via brackets it slotting at a minimum (there's a few options out there). I've got a bunch of old parts you could use as reference (11 mm ball joints and steering arms for example) 280zx struts with brakes to check wheel clearance, rear chopped springs, extra coilover springs, perches, etc.. Some of the used stuff could be yours for some beers... Others may be for sale, but mostly they are here to check out, measure, etc.. against what you're thinking (no charge, of course). Great progress on the dime!!! I'll follow up with a bunch of links to what I have referenced as I went through this.

    Hoping someone local has an extra set of control arms they don't need. Also looking for a rear seat in any condition. I'm in the SF Bay area, CA and will drive to you. I'm low on funds but I might have some parts for trade + $. Let me know if your interested, PM me and we'll figure something out. Thanks

  9. Nice score! I'll be watching your build! Also, this shot reminded me of my late night gas stop while picking up my 69

  11. 1983 VOLKSWAGEN RABBIT 1.8L L4 MONROE 86355 (86355:P) These are about 2" shorter.. i.e 2" needs to be sectioned or made up with internal spacers or a combination of spacers and sectioning with the 280zx strut. Can't speak to ride quality on these Monroes, still piecing together my front end but rockauto had them for cheap. FYI based on a quick mock up, I'm finding I'll bind my TC rod and stock sway bar before bottoming the 280zx strut (un-sectioned). Protip, add some spacer above the insert ( in the strut) so even if the strut body bottoms out the insert will not.
  12. Pretty sure I have the same rear coilovers. Curious about not having a locking set screw, clamping collar or second collar to "double nut." Have you used these before, any slippage, thoughts, etc.... Mine is just sitting for the time being and I've been wondering about the ProShock setup. Also, beautiful build! The color choice and attention to detail are spot on. I hope you drive this thing hard, it's lovely and deserves to be anything but a trailer queen!!! Given your enthusiasm, I don't think it'll sit much.
