Justin Posted July 29, 2008 Report Share Posted July 29, 2008 Are we sick of 620's yet...? (NEVER!!) here's a pic from the day I brought it home- After it was lowered- How it got it's original nickname (HotRodDeluxe, the window sticker, since removed)- Pic of the hood, grill removed (headlight rings were broken previously, now replaced along with the old-style grill) After the rim/hubcap change- And ....... a concept picture- Notice the vent windows, single headlight grill (STEROID GETS CREDIT FOR THAT IDEA, Thank you very much sir, apologies for copycat-ing), narrowed fullsize chevy bumper mounted lower than the datsun bumper, visor (clear blue plastic sheet), and custom taillights/smoothed tailgate. I now have acquired the two grills needed for making the single headlight grill, vent windows from a 521 (half-price @ Pick 'n Pull! Score!), a slider rear window (from a '78 Ford Courier, free, it'll work) and a way cool rear bumper, which is actually the front bumper of another car. So all I have left to get is: The front (chevy?) bumper, materials to make the visor (clear plastic, tubing/pipe, flat stock for a mount), steel sheet for a smooth tailgate, bondo to fill the factory bumper "dent" up front, and taillights... which I still haven't decided on (and a welder to narrow those oversize bumpers). I'm hoping to have this all completed around new years, the real trick will be keeping it running the whole time while I'm customizing. If this sounds like too much, let me just say this is not my first customization, and so far on this 620 I've already.... pulled/reinstalled the motor 4-5 times, (got it running again each time) set the timing several times (1st dual points, then E.I., thanks for the video Hainz!) installed a tach Replaced the clutch, replaced the flexible clutch line (whoops, that gets disconnected:() switched the seat and passenger side seat belt, switched the steering wheel, replaced the water-pump (roadside repair!) switched the trans/driveshaft (shorttail to longtail '79 280z) switched the carb (holleys rock, stuck hitachi's don't!) added a 3rd brakelight replaced the carrier bearing replaced the rear differential spreader brakeline And I know I'm forgetting a few things... (like painting that silly hood, for instance) I'll also be on the lookout for a LSD rearend in which I won't have to switch to an independant rear suspension, but since I saw that "switching your 620 to a 510 rear end" article I might just consider running adapters ... but that won't be for a long while... So... What do ya think? Quote Link to comment
