Thanks guys, glad you all like it B)

I wanted to hold out till the bodywork was all done, but waiting that long would probably make magazines obsolete.....

Maybe the coupe will end up on a future deck of cards? My car was shot only a coupla months ago - I imagine that the cards were made before then...

check the internet logs from the SX-510 groupie club. :D

I don't need to name names, you now who you are.

PS. Got my copy of Zoom over the weekend and despite all the bagging I hand out (and get back in return I might add) to Jeff his car looks great and is a credit the hard work that went into this vehicle.

While I am being nice thanks to PJ for raising the profile of datsuns within the modded car community, it will help all our resale values no end. If you need any in the build pics let me know ;)

Jeff

I am curious what fuse box you have used down there under the dash?

Looks neat.

Did you just cut and splice into existing wires or did you pull out the terminals and put in new connectors with new wire? Where did you get the connectors if this is the case.

Looks good

Thanx

Pretty sure it was from a Mitsubishi L300 van this time round. Like most, the fuseblock was only part populated with terminals/wires, so I grabbed a bunch of extra ones from another van in the yard to allow me to use ALL fuse holes.

I spliced the wires together, then soldered and heatshrinked each connection. Copper and pins were in perfect condition so didn't see any point looking for new ones.

It's a really good fusebox cos it mounts flat to a panel and uses modern plastic blade fuses - the big ones, not the latest tiny ones. Plus has 3 spare fuses clipped inside the lid.

After much searching, I finally found a pair of 5 stud 16 x 7 RS8's in correct offset for the front of the coupe!

The 7's I was going to use up till now would have looked a bit cheesy on the front cos they had almost no dish... But these ones match the 8" rears nicely and 'should' :unsure: fit under the front guards with a few degrees of negative camber applied. Will be running road legal semi's when back on the road - and they don't mind a bit of camber :)

I plan to paint them same gunmetal 2 pak colour as the R32 wheels that were on before, so should retain the appeal of the original look, but with a more historic sort of style.

Here's a dodgy phone-cam pic...
