Gloria, the ratty 210

Recommended Posts

So, I've been working at a 1981 Datsun B310 for a little while. I picked it up about 2 months ago as a first car and I've been slowly working at it. It's got 219,000 miles on it and it's a real beater.

Much appreciated! I'm going to try and make lots o' progress for you guys.

I'm on too many Datsun/Nissan forums so it will be hard to keep track.

Neither, these meets are for od school japanese cars only. real cool group of peaple. The next one is The mitty, which is Datsun themed this year and peaple are coming from all over the country.

Sweet! I've been looking for an old school meet in Georgia! I've got that list bookmarked and I'm gonna try and make it to each one of those meets. Thanks for opening me up to that!

Glad you are going to come out. The mitty is going to be crazy, if you want to run your car in the parade laps let me know and i'll try to get you on the list. What side of town do you live on? I'm westside, mableton

I love the bike too, i have never rode before, but i plan on trying to buy a honda to learn on. I found a deal a while back for 2 cb175 {or similar} for like $200, but they sold fast.

I'll have to see what I ca do. The Datto is broken right now. Waiting on a few parts and gotta diagnose an electrical problem. Hopefully it's going to be all sorted out by then so I can get her out. I'm in Marietta. I live right in the middle of all the flooding that we had a few months back.

Thanks! I got the bike for free from a friend. Just got lucky I guess. I've spent a total of about $300 on parts getting her where she is now. $200 for 2 CB's is an excellent deal. You might want something a little bit bigger though. Old Suzuki's make great starter bikes, or even a CB450.

Cool man, seems like your close by. The flooding was close to my house too. Just a couple of miles down the road it fact. My b210 is broke at the moment also, so i guess we both have some work to do before The Mitty.

Yeah, I think that the distance is minmal between your are and mine, but i'm not sure. I'm limited on what work I can do at the moment. I've had Cobb County Code Enforcement breathing down my neck the last few weeks so I'm having to lay low on my work. lol

So the dash swap project is starting in the morning! For those of you who havn't caught wind, I'm mounting a dash from a 1982 Mazda RX7 in my datto. Should be interesting.

Finally got to work on the dash.

Pulled it out today to cut it and mount the new RX7 cap.

Gonna re-wire it before it goes back together.

Also going to do some mesh replacement before it goes back together since it looks like ass right now.

And here's about what it's going to look like.

Id glass it or cap it and paint it before you put it in so its fresh and matches when you put it in. otherwise your going to be taking it out again to clean the dash up later on.

Nearly perfect. All I gotta do is get the right angle cut on the dash frame and it will look like it belongs in the car cool.gif
