New Goon On The Block

Recommended Posts

Hi all out there in Datsun land... I'm a new 510 owner... Had a few datsuns but now I got a 78 wagon (HL 510) I know a lot of guys say they arnt real 510's but I like it....


When I got it, it had a funny smell inside lol



I kicked out the stow-a-ways lol and took the carpet out too



So I did my best to put new carpet in... I know it's not perfect but I had never done it before.. I'll redo it again I'm sure...


Ya that's a towel shoved in around the stick lol not my idea but it works



I re wired the dash cuz nothing worked.. I got all blinkers warning lights and oil light the temp gauge wasn't reading either...


I got brand new tail lights and ignition cuz they were both broken



Now I'm working on lowering it... I got some blocks for the back I made at work 21/2" solid brass...


And I just got my rims back from getting powder coated still need rubber but they look pretty slick...


14x5.5 stamped U.S. TransAm on back

Saving up for everything to do the front and I'll post them... Thinking techno toyz weld on coilovers.. Then some cancer treatment lol and paint I will be sure to keep posting... I'm also selling the rims that are on there now... Just FYI


13" A.R.E. not sure the style

She's got a L20b with a mild cam upgrade.. And we swapped the 4 speed for a 5 speed dog leg... Not really... I will just keep it where she's at now... Gotta do the exhaust though... All rusted out and got a header
