wtfh4xx Posted May 25, 2009 Report Share Posted May 25, 2009 (edited) I recently acquired a 5-speed 1982 Datsun 720 (im assuming its a 720 since its an 1982, correct?) King Cab from my grandfathers friend for $800. I have yet to see it but have explored the web a bit and think I would like to modify the truck towards a Street Truck. I would like to spend under $2,000 modifying it, I know this seems impossible but I tricked out my JDM civic (not a rice mobile, it was a tuner) for about the same amount by being thrifty. By this I mean: Lowered, loud, black, powerful, and sexy. :D If you look at ]2eDeYe's signature, thats kind of look im going for. Any help or pointers in this direction would be great! First off, is the engine currently in it a good platform to work with or should I swap? I believe that its a Z22 engine if I'm correct. Second, what are my options for lowering? I dont want it slammed, but would definitely like to tuck some tire or be close to it. Can I adjust something that's stock or do I need to buy something to replace? Third, rims. I was thinking of Titan rims in gunmetal or silver with low-profile tires. Any other rims worth mentioning? What tire size should I use on the titans? Fourth, exhaust. Whats the sickest sounding setup I can go with? I was thinking some glasspacks placed right under the cab and chopping it off after them, before the start of the bed. Possibly sending some tips out the side before the rear wheels. Fifth, does the front on the 720 have the square lights? (remember I haven't seen the truck yet). If so, is there any way to replace it with a 620 grill and lights? Thanks for any contributions, pics to come asap. :cool: Edited May 25, 2009 by wtfh4xx Quote Link to comment
