  1. I finally got my car on the road! Now I’ve decided to sell, something I thought I’d never do. However, it’s happening, currently on auction at Bring A Trailer https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1969-datsun-510-5/
  2. Time Left: 11 days and 23 hours

    I had my car on a trailer today to get my front and rear windows put in. I noticed my passenger front side marker was missing (circled in red in pic)!! Evidently, the factory glue was so old, the lens came unbonded from the metal. My front markers are new factory NOS and have had them for many years. I sold my original ones, well used ones, so I don't have a replacement lens now🤬😭 So, if anyone has one, even just the plastic lens, I'm willing to buy it. Just send me a PM and a picture with how much. Thanks


  3. Wayno, I got the same email. I haven't uploaded any pics in a while. I did recently go on PB and deleted all but ones I remembered posting on this forum. I've only posted on here, and a few other forums I don't go on anymore, using PB. So, I'm pissed because some of my pics on here, I want to remain on this forum, they are informational on some of my threads or comments. Pictures in a "How to" topic, are important to understand what your are trying to convey. So, after I did delete most of my pics on PB, I have them on hardrives, I received another email about being over the bandwidth! So, looks like all my threads and post with pics from PB will be blurred, cause I'm not paying PB! I'm not going through the hassle of another pic hosting site, modifying all threads with the new hosting site etc. Just to much computer crap for me, rather been driving in my car, spearing, sailing, skiing, or kicking back!
  4. FYI, don't give the cops a reason to be able to stop you while out cruising local hang outs etc. Federal required bumpers in 1973 production years, you made it under the 1973 federally. However, most states have a front and rear bumper requirement, I know California does Div 12 Article 11.5 Bumpers 28070-28071. Since I can't tell from your member info and no front plate, what state you are from. I'm assuming California or Arizona with all the Palm trees in the background. If California, also required to have a front plate, Arizona does not. Can you drive without a front bumper, rear bumper, no driver side mirror, no review mirror, and tinted windows forward of the driver, sure, plenty do. But, don't be crying when you get pulled over, get a ticket and told you have to put the original manufactured bumper on. And no, the carbon fiber or fiberglass reproduction ones won't do, by law. You would stand a better chance of not getting stopped if you had the fiberglass ones on and painted. Plus in California you get to mount the ugly front license plate to it! or not, as many do. Love the rims by the way!
  5. Sorry, for the late response, but better late then never🤷‍♂️ M4-.7 X 10 mm or longer depending on thickness of split and flat washers or one star. If you go a little longer won't be a problem, the screw just goes to open space after the body sheet metal.
  6. The "Datsport", 3 point retractable seat belt set up, solves the belt hitting you across the neck. They have pics of the installation, uses the standard bolt locations, plus a few extra holes has to be drilled. Below is one of the pics with the top bolt location, this pic is on a 4 door. I don't recall, if the location is different for the 2 door, and my 2 door is at the A/C shop. So, im not able to reference the location on the 2 door is the same or not. Just thought I'd throw out another solution for you.
  7. Nice bones for a Goon restoration, rust usually eats the crap out of cars of this era. God speed with your build, time fly's when having fun!
  8. Ordered Motul 90PA for my R160 limited slip differential, split collars for my rear sway bar, picked up my rebuilt brake booster, and got my Whitline mustache bar bushings. Getting there! To the A/C shop on Monday to get the A/C hooked up and working, that's right, Air Conditioning ❄️❄️
  9. Thanks for your appreciation of my projects and work. Just PM me if you have any questions on you build. 😎
  10. Finally have the correct size tires, 4 wheel alignment, exhaust system done, and engine running. Off to the A/C shop to get the A/C lines and A/C system working. Still lots to do, windows, trim, bumpers, grill, spook spoiler, and interior stuff.
  11. Never quit!! Just have to persevere and keep saving money to put in the restoration 💲💲💲😬
  12. Hmmmm, can you see the other pics posted? Photobucket for all of my pics, and i'm able to see them all, old and recent. I did have to use the URL for direct link option on Phototbucket, to be excepted by this website, when choosing the "insert other media" tab. Browser setting? Anti virus program? I'm not enough of a tech to help out with the problem or if its just specific to you. I do get the watermark, "proudly hosted on photobucket" on the pics.
  13. The show is two days, Saturday and Sunday. So, show Saturday and Eagle Rock on Sunday, dilemma solved!
  14. Almost have my car on the road!! Thought I'd post a few newer pics of the engine bay with all the progress made lately, still not done, but getting there 🙌
