z18et Datsun 510 - [ MIS 510 ]

Postby niccy » Thu Jun 14, 2012 6:49 pm

Hey guys...

Thought I would join up seeing as quite a few mates are apart of here :)
I have just brought my first Datsun, which is a Datsun 510.

When she arrived, she ran rough, z18et turbo, certed with 17" shadow chrome wheels, big dumpy on the back, jacked as. Arrived with no door cards, no windows in, no door cards, Dash was covered in that gross fake black "grass" crap and blue engine bay.

I took her for a wee spin when she arrived (shes from Invercargill) around the block, testing the waters..

Shortly after I brought SSR Longchamps for her, 14x6.5 and 14.7s. I widened the 6.5s to 8s and left the 7s for the front, Which I will be widening in the next couple of weeks to 8.5s, 280zx front struts, new rear brake cylinders and shoes, painted under the bonnet white instead of the horrible blue lol, I brought the plates MIS 510, alloy radiator with electric fan, general tidy up and a small rust repair. With a lot of knowledgeable help from the boyfriend (dan1200sss) we have got quite a lot done, and a lot of learning done and more to come!! Now running on 10psi, and going quite a lot better ;)

I have hand polished to fronts so they do look a bit better now :)

Have brought a 510 badge ready to put on the back, Looking at painting it a light, flat, turquoise colour like the picture floating around on this forum i think... with the 510 on tridents..

I also got the interior done by a friend of my dads, black carpet with underlay, plastic bit by the pedals for extra wear (such a pine!), black vinyl up pillars and by the feet.. Black vinyl dash (as you can see by pictures, needs to be put back together) and black vinyl door cards, padded and stitched in a simple pattern. Hope to get the recaros redone in black with bride inserts and back seat needs to be cleaned up (its in MINT cond tho) and also I would like to tidy up the roof lining, but that will come in time. Shes tidy as she is now :)

She is defiantly a new car since I brought it, Hadn't had a warrent since 2005. Shes all certed, wof'd and reg'd.
Huge thanks also to a lot of friends who have helped with some tricky stuff!!

If anyone has some suggestions on what to use for a centre console and could post come pictures I'd be more than happy! :)

Hey Nicole,
have told Dan that I have some parts for your 1600.
There are two different rear D_A_T_S_U_N rear panel badges for the 1600, as they have different pin locations, I have both so will find out which badge suits my car and you can check to see if the other suits yours.
Am moving storage units this weekend, so will be putting aside what parts I find that you need as Im going along.
