Here is the most current picture of my '77 HoneyBee.

Engine is currently out of it and is going to a machine shop to go through it and make it like new.

 

Hoping to have it up and running before Christmas.

Also, does anyone know where I can get the side stripes and bee decal?

If you can get the image off the net, you can have it made at you local print shop. I had or have "somewhere" the original Bee decal. It would be like finding a needle in a hay stack to find it.

Quick question...Next to the window defroster switch and the fasten seat belt sign is a square hole on my dash. What is supposed to go there? Not sure what to search for or else I would have already.

I have one, but dont know if you are going to be able to install it.

It seems that the PO made that hole a lot bigger than what it was.

the D emblem goes there ive got one

 

if you cant find one, look into 3d printing it. 

we have one at school if you can find a firm that provides the 3d printing services in your area they can design and print one for a reasonable price, or if you can borrow one have it scanned and printed for an exact replica, I'd like to help you but my school is still pushing to get a 3d scanner, if i get acces to one i'd be more than happy to help poeple get replicas that they can print out

on a side note:

 

i might be replacing mine in a few months with a rev counter (with a 3d printed adapter to make it look factory)

 

perhaps an idea for you todo aswell if you dont have a revcounter or maybe a clock?

The D emblem is just a plug for where the clock goes. The clock is hard to find though, see second pic below far right.

 

However the D emblem is actually two piece, the insert, which is removable and the outer frame which is plastic welded on, that is what causes those little notches on the edge of the hole. It also looks like the little piece between the fasten seat belt light has been cutout too.

 

The D emblem insert.

im just going to ask here:

 

 

since im working on my car now anyway

im considering doing a carb swap does anybody have some advice here? should i stick to a single carb or go duel sidedrafts? also whats the best choice for power to price ratio?

 

the car is currently stock and with the intake upgrade i'll want to change to a performance exhaust too. has anybody upgraded theirs? what did it cost? do you have a video? 

i don't want to go the ricer route here so no unnecessary fart cannons

 

the car is a stock rust free  (apart from a few surface spots) 1976 1,2l coupe with a manual 4 speed

Always been a big fan of dual carbs but in the state I live in always screws things up to enjoy the goods things.

Unless your one has a car older than 1975.

fan of them too but not a fan of the price tag that comes with it. 

i dont think i would have too much problems here regarding emissions on a car approaching 40 years old but then again i live in the netherlands

Hello-

 

My name is Emma, I live in Portland, OR and bought this '78 Datsun B210gx off of Craigslist, kind of on a whim and also fantasizing about a fuel efficient vehicle that I could use to learn about cars. It was running when I bought it (although poorly) - I really didn't know anything about cars going into this.

Ha- I was told I just needed to bleed the brakes but it was otherwise decent... well we've run into a lot of problems and it's been a slow learning process but very fun.

 

I'm still working on this project... I have run into wiring issues (which I have resolved) and currently I am rebuilding the carb which will probably get tested out tomorrow..

 

She also needs a new headlight switch (lights are sporadic, flash on and off if you can get it on at all..) maybe I can open that up that switch and clean the contact points? I replaced all the fuses..

 

Also seems the fuel gauge does not work at all.. I haven't started thinking about that one yet .. :)

welcome emma 

 

what direction do you want to take this car in. restoration, cheap runabout, restromod, race build or just seeing where the hobby takes you? 

 

also you mentioned that you were looking for a fuel efficient car to work on. are you looking at building a hyper miler? burn as little gas as possible to get where you need to 

 

nice car
