    A few weeks back I ran a compression check, just out of curiosity. The numbers dropped a bit from cylinder #1, on down. I believe I'm still within 15% of each other. Are the numbers low? Motor doesn't seem to be burning oil or smoking. For the most part, the motor pulls fine and keeps temps well in check. In order:

    Thanks for the education, guys! You guys laid it out simple and clear. Soundline, hope you get your truck up and running soon.

    Those doors look sooooo much better! Not sure if I'll be able to work on my car this week, but it's definitely on my to-do list. I'll try and get to the console soon and see if I run into any issues. Thanks for your help!

    I bought them on ebay, all the way from Thailand. According to the seller, they are a copy from a JDM KB110. Not sure if he's b.s'ing, but I like the design and the vinyl looks and feels like good quality. I found one like it in the Datsun 1200 web page. It says it's a KB110 GX. http://datsun1200.com/modules/myalbum/photo.php?lid=12459 I will look into blacking out the bottom of the door. Now that you pointed it out, it does look funky with the two-tone. I never though of using Velcro...I love the idea. I hate drilling into cars, even if you can't see it. The console did come with brackets, but I rather use Velcro. Thanks for your ideas and input! :thumbup:

    Finished off the front door panels. Cut and glued the skins on. It was a little nerve wracking since I've never done it before and I didn't want to cut it where it shouldn't. I also used the lock sills from a 510. Just had to drill out the old sill and widen the hole a bit to accept the plastic sill. I think they look a lot better than the metal ones they originally come with. Before installing the door panels, I sealed off the door using some thick plastic sheet. Trimmed off the plastic sheet before applying the panel.

    Hey DF, I thought you posted somewhere that you had a How To Install center console procedure? I want to get that thing installed this week coming up and I want to do it right. :)

    It's still available and it has gone up in price every time I've bought it. You can't beat the quality and fitment of this felt. It's worth every penny, in my opinion.

    Actually, you didn't reply late :). I asked you about the wing gaskets today. Good deal that you got OEM. Did coupes came with different door panels than the type I have? I've only seen the high type. Another thing I did during the wing gasket install, was install new window felt. Mine was pretty much all gone. One roll easily does both doors. Sorry about the crappy pics...

    One thing that was really bugging me about my car was the interior. I like to have clean, comfortable interiors. Mine was in real poor shape, especially the seats and door cards. I had a hell of a time trying to find a decent set of door cards without spending and arm and a leg. There were two leads at one point and both were asking, what I thought, was way too much (250 plus shipping) for the condition they were in. When I agreed to buy them, they both flaked out. In a way it was a good thing as I would have probably bought something that I was not going to be happy with. With that being said, I bought the skins for the front doors from Ebay. Paid a bunch for them, but they appeared to be a good quality product. I traced out the one decent door card I had on a board and cut it out. Then lined up the top metal frame and drilled out the holes so I could put the staples back to hold it in place. It wasn't too hard getting the staples back in after dripping it to the right size.

    Kelmo, did you install new wing window seals? If so, who did you buy them from? I installed mine a few weeks ago. Overall, I think it came out ok.

    Kelmo, here is a closer look on the lower bracket for the alternator. The pic is not the greatest, but I came as close to the top of the bracket as I could. The split lock washer was almost touching where the bracket started to curve.

    Unfortunately, Datsport does not supply the gasket that holds the vent glass on the stainless steel frame. Baz gave me the idea of using a bike inner tube. With the combination of the tube and some silicon, it held the glass ok. As for the mod that Baz told me about, you have to grind the notches on both side of the rod about 5mm up towards the frame to drop the frame that amount. Simple mod using a file or grinder. Finished it off by greasing the areas where there was metal to metal contact to minimize wear. overall length after the mod.

    Thanks for the tip, DF. I forgot to mention that I also bought an MSD blaster 2 from a fellow member about a year ago. Hopefully I'll get this done next week. This last week I worked on getting the front vent window gaskets on. Not too hard to do, but there is a mod you have to do to the shaft if you're using the ones from Datsport. Baz told me about the mod right after I installed them LOL. If the mod is not done, the glass and frame will sit too high. Here are the before pics. The seals were hard and falling apart so I decided to get them done since I've been sitting on the seals for almost two years.

    That's what I had read at another forum, but wanted to check with you guys that have tried all the options to get your opinions and experiences. I would much rather run with the stock carb at this point. Thanks for the input. I grabbed the electric dizzy from the '80 210 donor car a couple of years ago. Maybe this week coming up I'll install it and let you guys know how it went.

    Kelmo, I corrected the post regarding the bracket. I actually drilled the holes so that the bolt and washer were just a hair from where the bracket starts to bend inward. I will post a pic with a better close up so you can see it. I totally forgot to take a pic of the bracket before installing it.
