    Wilwood Powerlite Calipers

    I run them on two of my cars. They are awesome. Only that I run them with a 12.2" rotor and only 15" and larger aftermarket rims fit over my setup. The 15" JDM wheels with a two piece barrel fit do not fit. I would think that if you run a smaller (11" or less) or stock rotor, the 15" JDM wheels would fit.

    Does anybody have good pics of front sway bar on 510?

    Glad you got it figured out.

    '75 620 make over

    That's a sweet truck. I remember seeing it here on the forum a while back. I got the tires today. I'll see if I could get them mounted this week end. I hope I didn't just waste $450 on tires that don't fit or work. LOL I'll post pictures once all the work is done.

    '75 620 make over

    Bringing this back because it's not done...anymore. I've had this truck pretty much untouched since 2012 when I freshened it up. I don't drive it much at all. Maybe 1000 miles (700 mile round trip to the 2012 JCCS) since it was finished. Now I want to change the stance. I'm sick of it. I want to go to a Prerunner look. The plan is to keep the rims and add some 215/70r/16 A/T tires, take the 3" blocks off the rear, raise the front and change the rear diff to help with the bigger wheels. Nothing major or expensive. I have too many projects going on at once and at times I feel overwhelmed. I need your input, guidance and comments. I've never put this size tires on a 620 and I'm not sure if they fit or rub. What's the highest the front will go by just the torsion bars? The truck below is similar to the stance I'm looking for. The truck below is newer so it has ball joint vs. my kingpin. That truck was supposedly built for some type of competition. I'm not sure if they did some fab work up front, but I can't tell from the pick in the site https://www.grautogallery.com/vehicles/2020/1978-Datsun-620-Baja To me it looks pretty much stock, but I'm not familiar with the ball joint 620s. How is sits today.

    I used the 3/4" seal. Not sure if it leaks, though. I haven't washed the car since my trunk seal leaks real bad.

    orange B110 coupe

    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!

    orange B110 coupe

    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...
