Carlos's 620

Recommended Posts

We'll figured I'de make my own thread so I can post my progress on my truck...

 

The truck had been parked right out my door at my neighbors house for 4 some odd years. I don't know why I didn't ask about it earlier but, whatever... So one day I eventually asked them what there doing with it and they replied "nothing.... it needs some work and we don't have the time for it anymore" So I asked them if they wanted to sell it. When they finally for back to me on a price I just about shit my pants. :D They said they'll take $125 for it. So I quickly gathered up some cash (I don't know why I rushed it wasn't going anywhere :lol:) anyways me and a friend put and new battery in it and sprayed some starting fluid down the carb and BAM it fired up. Pored some Stable in the tank It smoked and backfired when you gave it throttle but, that was just the bad gas going through it. After all the bad gas was out it ran like a champ.

 

Anyways ill start with the build part of this thread...

 

heres where it sat for all that time:

I than seen some Titans on craigslist for $100 So I did some research and found out that they'll fit just had to do a little grinding on the front hubs. Heres a picture of the test fit and our school auto shop:

I was new to the forum and heard about the Canby meet so we got it a little bit lower for the show:

After that great turn out I decided to go with yellow centers and did it with the film I think It turned out ok:

Picked up an SR was hoping to put this in but, it was out of a FWD car and would of been way to much trouble to put it in. So I than traded it to Josh aka Lynchfourtwenty who he than found out it was blown. ( Sorry Buddy)

Finally got a new fender for the Drivers side And got a new grill Thanks Brandon aka Bagged_datsun:

Than later picked up a Air Dam:

Nice build. Looks pretty good with the stock steelies on there. One question, is there a reason you are not running a fan on your alternator?

maybe. I was just told that I could cut about 1"-2" off the end the connects to the radiator to get the hose out of the way of the alt.

If I was you I would just buy a shorter belt due to the fact that it is a formed hose . When you cut a formed hose and stretch it it will put stress on the hose and that creates weak spots . So do what you want to do but I would put a shorter belt .

as for the side markers I know there backwards. There more aerodynamic, this way I get better Highway mileage. :D jk. I think they look better like that way though.
