71 Dat project

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say thank you to the site for all the great things to read on here. Hat tips to Datsunmike, Wayno, mikeklotz and any regular members. 
I would like to post some pics as I read somewhere pics are great but can’t seem to figure it out at this point. Will search and follow through.

thanks again for the fun.

Welcome!  I'm up in Denver, got lots of Datsun nuts around!  I'm a 510 guy, but just bought a 521 flat bed.  Bob3 is manager at Pikes Peak International Raceway, has at least TWO 521's, one with full Miata drivetrain & suspension......it is KILLER KOOL!!

Welcome ...

Are you still assembling?

I was able to see a few pictures... Looking good.... 

That valve cover is funky ... 

How was that done?

Welcome and great pics! If you right click them and get the URL then Ratsun will auto load them for you like so:

Can't wait to see where it goes from here, what are your plans?

That looks like a carbon kevlar pattern and they are typically done by hydro-dipping the part if I am not mistaken. 

like so:

Yes it was hydro dipped. The color went more green tone than I wanted but better than nothing. 
cheers

That box looks like it’s almost brand new! Looks like a very solid project. Were you lucky enough to get a solid box, or does that pic represent a lot of restorative work?

carry on

The box had no rust and minor repairs. I do have another box with some side rust and bondo repairs if anyone needs a bed or tailgate. Thanks for looking at my Dat

'75-'77 L20B. I put a car L20B into my 521 back in the 70s. Loved the torque increase.

Well 1 pic came through, I guess it’s better than none.

It would appear I’m better with a wrench than a photo upload. I’m trying to get images from imgur to load here on this post, but alas I’m unsuccessful. Any thoughts as to my possible mistakes? 
thx

I can access the picture above directly from imgur, so it seems like you're at least doing something correctly. Make sure the copied link always has the ".jpg" on the end of it. Usually the forum tools automatically flag it as an image and inserts it into your post. I don't know if it makes any difference, but I always set my imgur pictures to "private" or "hidden" on the imgur site prior to uploading them. Of course, I'm doing this all from an iPhone, so it may vary.

Hi Wayne, I want to load more pics(6) but I can’t get them to load from Imgur. Any help?/ideas?

You cannot get them to load onto Imgur or you cannot copy them to paste them here, I went to your account and the last photo I seen was the one of the side of the shiny black box and rear rotor.

Wayne, they are loaded in imgur, I can copy them but they will not load up rats in. There should be 6 more pics after the left bed side/bark rotor pic. Thx for taking time on this.
