  1. Yes, no more camera on head. Thanks for the feedback and encouragement! Would a vid just giving a brief rundown of weber carbs be useful for people?
  2. The trucks just read empty long before they are empty, live off the top of the tank and you will be completely fine. I always keep track of mileage just for good measure. The grounds might go sideways on you so just add in some extra ground straps and what not for good measure. My main engine ground fell off once and I didn't even notice because I have extra grounds running everywhere.

    I tried em, they work good.
  4. I tried the 3D printed visor clips if anyone wants to see em.

    sun visor clips

    Does anyone have the file in DXF? I have broken a few of the 3D printed ones and am interested in having some laser cut out of aluminum or something
  6. I use the red lockitite and sometimes a bit of this stuff, it's not nasty like RTV and is perfect for the application. http://gasgacinch.com/
  7. I have a trans with some stuff thats definitely gonna fall out when I open it up.
  8. Trying to comply with the pics or ban rule here...... Did a bit of painting, I just wanted to stop the rust so its rattle can and lots of primer. Not pretty but its better than the rust also needed to practice with my fancy new toys before doing white trucks engine bay. And as a side benefit the licence plate is now held on with bolts instead of zip ties so that's kinda a luxury item.
  9. I would go for it in a heartbeat, but I am crazy so that has some affect on my decision making........................... I see a Weber and a clean body, thats more than enough for me.
  10. Its just a bit of sanding and coating, its only a touch of surface rust.
  11. Thanks I never would have guessed that! there is a small amount of rust under one corner so I will have to remove a bit of it.
  12. Finally got some work done and thought I would include some photos. Almost the whole truck is gutted so I pulled the dash to get at the wiring harness and tore out the extremely nasty carpet, photos do not do it justice. The floor is mostly nice underneath. Does anyone know what this material is on the floor and how to best remove it?
  13. How else do you get to work in the winter?
  14. Alright guys its spring, and that means Datsun, currently this pile o parts is at the only shop I trust (still I am super nervous letting anyone touch my baby) getting pit man arm, idler arm, steering linkage, alignment, summer tires mounted and balanced, and a front dif oil change they threw in for basically the cost of GL-5. Once that is done the only remaining factory parts will be the differentials, passenger seat, and some body panels. Soon I will be replacing the fuse block because it melted itself and some functions (heater) are not working. Feel free to make fun of me for letting a shop work on my rig, but I did not want to cut the rusty bits off.
