  1. I Nice I have the same hub. I think ill hold off on the QR for now.
  2. Hey! I have been following your build. Your truck looks sweet. I was wondering if you could share details/Part #s on the NRG hub and quick release you used. The site doesn't list anything for 521, but I do have one off my old 620. Not sure if they are the same. Also, does the hub/QR push the wheels out towards you a lot? Saw someone on youtube use a different brand system and it look uncomfortably close lol. Thanks
  3. Also here is my truck!
  4. Wow thanks for the advice and links everyone. Definitely feel better tackling this mini project now. I don't have the pre made holes (see photo 1) but think I can make it work. Here are some photos of my pillar and original belts. Wish I could keep them just because they are original but I have my mind set on upgrading them. Thanks again!
  5. Hi everyone, I just picked up a 1969 521 recently. I will be posting some photos later today. I was curious what seat belt mods everyone has done. My truck currently has only lap belts and no hole along the back pillar for a shoulder belt. Before I start chopping and making holes I was wondering what everyone else has done? Should I look into aftermarket options or just go to the wreckers and pull some out of another car? Is there anything I should consider for mounting in terms of harware? Is anyone familiar with the mike klotz write up? I cant seem to find it. If I a

  7. thanks guys :) small update.... My window squeegees were all dry and brittle. Saw some on ebay but theyre fairly expensive and read they aren't good quality. I also someone use ~1994 4runner tailgate window squeegees instead. So I purchased two. You can find them in your local junkyard probably. I cut them to size and popped them in! They make a huge difference. I also found a center console on craigslist. Cleaned it and patched some spots with a plastic filler. Then sanded it down and painted it with the bed armor spray I used on the dash and steeri
  8. WOW thanks everyone!!! and yes! sorry for the late reply! I used spray can duplicolor bed armor for the dash, steering wheel column cover, and center console. It turned out great and is still holding up well.
  9. Thanks. I think maybe around December/January and it has held well since. Durable and no fading. I followed a DIY dash repair thread on a 240z.
  10. I also wanted to upgrade the lighting and ended up finding these turn signal lights from ebay....and halo lights from ebay (cheap 50 for the set!) alll mounted..... (you might notice I also mounted some side mirrors....found them on amazon for 11$ each! :) ) and testing the lights..... I read on a landcruiser forum how a person cleaned and repainted their mud flaps.....I used a white paint pen to go over the datsun logo to freshen them up haha Now this is a project I've wanted to do for the longest time....I always
  11. Hi everyone, So I wanted to post an update and share some images of my progress since my last post. Prepare for a photo dump. First off I wanted to work on the wheels so I looked around until I found these white walls on craigslist. The wheels themselves had lots of rust, therefore requiring LOTS of sanding, vinegar dips and lots of patience.... This is after soaking in vinegar for a few days.... Then primed and painted...... I also managed to find some grill rings on craigslist to complete my set and cleaned them up along with the d
  12. Thanks guys!! I am gonna give this try after I clean up the rings and make them shine. Also question, Can anyone suggest any wheels that could be a direct bolt on without modifications? I dont have the disk break conversion so im not sure how fitting would be. Id like to keep the original wheels, but havent had any luck finding white wall tires. I was thinking of maybe putting on Frontier wheels? I wish I had the disk brake conversion to put on titan wheels though.
  13. Decided to repaint the grill. Used black plastidip. Also repainted the emblem with some outdoor paint. all put together... Found some beauty rings recently...but all the tabs are broken....any ideas on how to fasten them on? Gave the taillight housings a good cleaning...sanded them and repainted them. Decided to give them the chrome/metal look. on the truck...
  14. Thanks guys! The truck is a 1974. The body is in fairly decent condition, most rust was localized to the top of the fenders and it has no major dents. However the floor boards like many others are shot. They currently have fiberglass but we were hoping in ripping that out and welding in some metal. We have no experience in restoring a vehicle but this forum has helped in that process quite a bit. Here are some more images of some of the work that has been done. The fenders were horrible. We used fiberglass and bondo to clean them up. Put a coat of paint on top to protect it.
  15. Hi Guys, acquired this 620 last august, and have slowly been working on it since. Trying to keep costs low but hoping I can have it back on the road this summer. The first shot was the day it was purchased. The second one being more recent (AUG/2017) :)
