Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

I’ve done a bunch of shit since my last post, don’t think I have any pics. Went for a WoF and cert. Small list of things to do so will spend the next couple weeks going through them. Should be legal soon. Today I fitted a terralink speed probe into my speedo cable. My greabox and speedo are cable dr...

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

NPTF threads are meant to seal without any sealant What I thought, but a wee check online and people use sealant on it for the same reason. your wiring is a bit scary too in light of that fuel leak! Agreed. I'll move to some body clips some time soon. Leak is all sorted since the sealant has been on.

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

This weekend I finished replacing all of the door cards. Whilst the passenger door card was off I fixed the door mechanism that was not closing properly. The spring for the door catch mech was poked so fixed that and made it better than ever. I fixed a massive fuel leak coming from the tapered brass...

Re: 1600 Rubber Set

I can’t comment on the eBay stuff but Datsport is a one stop shop for every rubber you’ll need and the rubber is made in South Australia I believe.

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

I was trying to get Lewis to sort me out some door panels but he is too busy.

I'm thinking I will get them covered the same as the ones they are replacing but without the foam. Then when the car is all running and everything is sorted long term I can sort out redoing the whole interior.

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

Today I mounted the front mirrors. Wasn't too happy drilling into the guards though! IMG_1732.jpg IMG_1740.jpg IMG_1738.jpg IMG_1742.jpg Also grommeted the firewall. IMG_1746.jpg IMG_1747.jpg Started swapping over the covered door cards for the new blank ones. The covered ones had foam that was too ...

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

Put the grill on. Spent about an hour trying to find the correct pan head bolts and tube spacers to fit it but that’s my one job for the night.

Re: gingofthesouth's Orangatang 510

So I started back on the 510 and spent many hours sorting out wiring issues (that weren't caused by me), pestering people like Chris Gormanly and doing my best to get the car ready for that WoF date. I took it for only its second drive the other day in almost 8 years..... Didn't let boost come on fu...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Was thinking of going proximity and push button starter on the 510 too but can't figure out how to make it look nice.
