    I don't have pictures when installing them, but I can take some of the back. It's a pretty easy install for the dash bezel. I haven't gotten to complete the wiring part of them set. The gauge has a big lock ring type nut on the back and you just take that off slide it in the dash and out the lock ring back on again.

    Thanks! Wiring is a pain but as long as I get a couple of things done each weekend it'll go by fast. The alternator is 60 amp. There were plenty of options for more but I went with this because it has the same connector as stock and it's a direct swap, I didn't have to grind or modify anything. The core was really gross, and when I changed hoses those were not great either so I'd like to do a full flush whenever I get more together.

    Thanks, gauges are from speedhut like you have in your ride!

    I have been working little by little with doing the wiring on the truck. Bought some new taillights and turn signals, trying to figure out some wiring. Swapped the alternator with a subaru loyale alternator, it was nice being a direct swap. Got the e30 lights in on both the headlight buckets. Today cleaned out the hvac, the heater core was was completely filled full of crap. got new hoses for it and grommets for the firewall that fit. Made some connectors for the cab to engine wiring harness. still a ways to go with the harness running and connecting. Got some speed hut gauges in looking good. I took some time to try and put a big band aid over my dash, it has a lot of filler and so many cracks, i looked up some how to's and got a bunch of polyvance stuff to fill in the cracks and some dash filler. Painted it but done have done pictures of it yet. Is it better than was it was? yes, it is perfect? hell no. some pics... <a href="http://s817.photobucket.com/user/chonypros/media/IMG_20190325_142129_zpszipshzqv.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://oi817.photobucket.com/albums/zz91/chonypros/IMG_20190325_142129_zpszipshzqv.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_20190325_142129_zpszipshzqv.jpg"/></a>

    the headlights are for a bmw e30. these are depo headlights not original, i use to own an e30 for my first car, messed around with the lights/projectors. I found these on ebay. they sell them in non-smoked too. shifter bushing was a set on ebay too. link

    I got to some things this weekend. I changed the shifter bushing (it was completely missing one) and it feels %1000 better. I replaced some vaccum hoses that were cracked thanks to datzenmike's catch on a previous post. Took the truck out of a little drive and it runs a lot smoother, In fact the idle now is a little higher from no more vaccum leaks. I finally got most of my electrical upgrades hoarded so i started to pull the engine and interior harness. I uncovered some more hacks and added things to my list to replace in the future. Pics.. some handy work... custom backing plate this looks real safe euro smiley ellipsoids

    did some work on the doors the other day, Turns out the driver side door didn't open from the inside but locked from the outside, and the passenger side was the opposite. I saw that the nylon for the door rod was broken for the driver side, got that fixed and just an e clip was missing from the back of the lock on the passenger side. is there a picture or part someone can link to of what holds the door rod in the middle of the door? both of mine are broken.

    doesn't look like there is anything for the hose to go to on this side unless im missing something. I looked at pictures of stock air filters and i can see the hose going to somewhere on the driver side area.

    thanks man! ive been over your build thread a few times and got a lot of ideas and info from it, thanks for doing all of that. when im doing the re-wiring am also going to do the speedhut gauges too! im excited for that.

    I have started the cleaning out process a little bit and getting out all the crazy shit that previous owners have done to this thing. its getting fun already, Im not sure when it was last running consistently, but every time i get in it hot or cold, it fires right up. I haven't driven it longer than 10 mins no over 45mph just because the brakes need some attention some point soon. I hear you on the seals drying out ect. It seems like the rear main seal? is leaking when i was under it looking it over. but it could be coming from a different place, the trans is completely covered in grime. thanks for the info!

    Hi all, new to the forum here and new to datsun. I picked up a 1974 datsun 620 not too long ago, its pretty rough but it has some character. Most of the things dont work, the wiring is all hacked up, so i am starting with rewiring the car. The first thing i bought though were seat beats since the driver side was only hanging on by half the treads. Next thing i had to do is change out the shocks, because the ride was TERRIBLE, turns out 2 of the 4 shocks were totally blown out, no rebound and too easy to compress. most important...pics New shocks all around. Ride is so much better, the front needs to be raised a bit still. Im researching re-indexing? bent/blow rear shock. some rust on the floor boards on both sides. Driver side they just screwed in some metal over the hole. passenger side they did tack down a metal plate but didnt cut out the rust underneath it. you can also see the "custom" headlight switch on the floor... 5th cylinder?? does anyone know why this would be plugged? more plugs
