  1. I love it! mad props!!!
  2. I love this thread..Props to you and the truck, very nice! Do you remember what stripper you used on the engine bay to get it looking like that? Im really feeling that!
  3. O really? Thats why it hasnt rusted off yet ? Thanks for that little piece of Datsun trivia. Currently modding the Honda rad and crank pulley to fit without cutting the front of the car. I want to machine it. Maybe on the brake lathe. We will see...
  4. Yea I know what piece you are talking about. But what do you mean stainless? Did you do some custom stainless steel or what?
  5. What do you mean stainless for the under grill side?
  6. Nice truck! My wallet isn't as deep as yours. I have to work with what I got. I think with a little massaging it will fit. Maybe I have to cut the facia but I dont want to do that. I would like to keep the grill.
  7. I got the intercooler in today. The fit is still tight with the rad. I got a Honda EG aluminum one from ebay just because its the smallest 2 core rad I could find. Im considering machining the crank pulley to eliminate the outter row so I can get some better clearance. Whats intercooler and radiator setup are you guys using for sr swaps in the 521??
  8. Yea I know its tight. I had to return the first IC beacause the 3.35" core was too big. I got a CX racing one for a 510 coming in....lets see what happens. the 510 core is 2.5"
  9. I have a few other things to finish up to start her up.... 1- gas tank 2- can am wiring 3- fuse box wiring ( switching to blade box) 4- fuel pump walbro 255 external 5- intercooler & piping 6- radiator & plumbing 7- seats 8- weld tunnel 9- gauges
  10. no bumper.....I might rock it like this
  11. Yea you're right I measured and there is no room in stock location. I am going to mount behind the diff. Anybody done this?
  12. I think Im going to go with a fuel cell in stock location. The truck has one mounted in the bed now but its old and got to go.
  13. Thats the thing.....I have no tank.
  14. I need a gas tank anybody have ideas?
  15. That’s nice work. Why did you need to lower the motor height? What engine you running?
  16. Look at the second pic. Im just going to notch the mount and move it forward. I will post pics so you can see. Thanks for the mounts!
  17. Finally towed the car to my shop and I have made some progress...I got my sr20 swap in its an s15 motor with 6 speed ?. I dropped in and pulled the motor out a couple times already as I hit some bumps. The truck had the pedal box mashed up as the previous owner had an automatic and chopped off the clutch pedal. The MC hole on the firewall was torched out to fit a ford MC ?. Tunnel was opened up way too much and no room for foot for gas pedal. luckily I bought a pedal box from a forum member and Im cutting and welding the fuck out of this thing to make it right. Here are some pics..... I reindexed it bout 3 notches. These are my Explorer wheels I had laying around..They fit perfect and got some Neo gens I got the sr20 521 mounts from redeye. But since its a 6speed, tranny mount is a little short. I have to modify the tranny mount. I will post some pics as soon as I do. Parking brake bracket has got to go.... wastegate sitting on steering column..... Got these from Jegs. Ford 9" disc upgrade. Rear discs and KYBs Feel free to post comments, opinions, suggestions, critisize, correct my grammer....Im open and dont give a f***
  18. Ok...she's not preety but here she is.... Cutting out the old welded SB mounts.... Hope you like the pics....more to come as soon as I make more progress :thumbup:
  19. Thank God they werent. I chopped them old ones out and grinded and painted... Good as new :thumbup: Thanks...I already got'em!!
  20. Thanks bro..I will as soon as I figure out how, lol. I need a pedal box too. If anyone has one laying around or knows anyone that does would be greatly appreciated! The ones on the truck now are chopped up due to the last swap. Looks like they had a v8 in there bc the tunnel was worked on, has dual exhaust, and a Ford 9”. Right now its a roller.
  21. Hi, I just joined the forum when I bought my ‘71 521 pickup. Im a car guy/mechanic/nissan enthusiast. I previously owned a ‘96 200sx with GTi-R Pulsar motor which I regretted selling. I picked up this truck because I always liked the jap mini trucks and Im a nissan fanatic. The idea is to SR swap it ratty style and do body work little by little. So far Im working on it on my spare time until I collect all the parts, tow it to my shop and get r done! Pics coming soon!!
  22. Will these mounts work for a 521. Also do they utilize the stock 521 mounts? Also how much?
