this is the car as it sits now

alright i finaly desided to post a thread on my ongoing 610 project, little behind but this is what i have done to the car so far (have some before pics as well); i have done a new clutch, rebuild to the hitatchi, (that was one hell of a fun jigsaw puzzle biggrin.gif) custom radiator and electric fan custom, fabricated upper strut mounts, new voltage regulator, 8mm plug wires, starter, new rearend with slight gearing change, 14" konig theories, goodyear rubber, custom racing seat with custom brackets, carbon fiber look alike dash inserts, shopping cart protective strip thing delete, vr3 cd mp3 deck, 200 watt optimus amp, sony xplod 10" sub (1100 watt power rateing), new front sheetmetal and grill, little bit of engine dressup.

this is how i got the car it was bone stock when i got it (the rim on it is one of the konigs)

wheels:

14"konig theories
i bought them in a junkyard for $120 they look good. I had to get spacer plates due to the offset being wrong, and in the back i had to cut a little out of the control arms to make them work. They look nice and fill the wheelwell well.

seats:
i got the seat from kreagan for $100 it looks good all things considered had to eather put this one in or drill and tap the original which was rather thrashed to fix it i had to fab up some custom brackets but that was easy

carbon fiber look alike:
i found this really cool carbon fiber tape at kreagan so i used it to replace the original woodgrain

radiator and fan:

i bought a new radiator for a 620 because they dont offer one for the 610 and with the deeper radiator i couldnt use the fan so i went to pick n pull and found an electric fan from a toyota and used that

Might I suggest selling the dogleg and finding a long tail 5speed. Even if it means shortening the driveshaft, it's easier than lengthening.

Heya Bonvo. I think the carbon fiber tape looks good man! Totally updates the look in a quick and affordable way. 'Course I wonder about Carbon Fiber looking dated in about ten years, but since it's tape, you can always pull it off and put something else on!

 

Nice idea!

ive considered it but ive been told the dogleg has more favorable gearing for the 3:90s i got out back though if you know where i can get one i would be willing to swap it straight accrossor i could return the one i have

What gearing are you looking for? The 280s came in wide and close ratios.

Sweet, keep us updated. I'd definately get some different wheels on there, and drop that thing, but sweet car. Alot of potential!

i plan on doing some work to the console peices and the shifter to make it look like its comming from the stock location the only thing left to do is lengthen the drive line (5 1/4 inches)put a good reverse light swich in it top off the oil and im on the road again

Right on man. Keep up the good work. I am also removing the woodgrain look for the carbon fiber as well. I got some stuff off eBay a few months ago and ended up putting the project aside to finish rebuilding my SUs (85 percent complete) Ahh, Datsun... how I love thee and hate thee all at the same time.
