    Default slammed 69 datsun 510 beater

    ahhh where to began. bought this car from some douche bags backyard about a year and a half ago. paid 500 (over paid) for the car with no title or bill of sell. to make a long story short, i brought it home knowing nothing about 510's or cars in general. started doing some home work and started tearing apart the car. learned a little bit about the little l motor in side and tore apart the motor and swapped a high comp peanut head and got it running. blew it. put an l20b in. ***** it. not a huge fan of l motor performance. bought a ka24de swapped it in.. then the fun started. put in a welded diff and cut the springs. blah blah blah...
    any ways. tired of typing. time for some pics from old to new. warning: old pics are pretty bad.













    then went through a really bad mismatched color stage.




    ka24de (the first one)

    custom oil pan

    put it in a ditch.. no big deal

    then my fetish for being low started.



    still wasnt low enough so we did a custom set up with shortened 280zx struts with kyb rabbit inserts


    about an hour after lowering it i ripped a hole in the oil pan on a road turtle and blew the motor. swapped in another one that had a bad ring and smoked ridiculously. blew that too. now we are in the present time ha. im on my 5th motor, 3rd ka. i love the feel of ka's but really want to build an na ca18de with throttle bodies. soon enough.
    how it sits now.



    i really need some wheels. thinking about either works, or 13x7 13x8 diamond racing steelies. im trying to get perfect fitment while being slammed, which is extremely hard with 510's, especially four doors. they have inner lips in the fenders that must be cut.
    needless to say, i have a big collection of road turtles. my crossmember eats them:


    it scrapes on everything. it gets stuck on the smallest speed bumps. it sprays cars with road turtles. but hey, low is a lifestyle right?
    future plans are:
    stiffer coil overs for the front and rear
    new wheels
    getting the perfect fitment
    and carpet!!!
    moreeeeee pics to come, i havent had a camera in a while so its been hard to get pics of the car lately. will post some tonight!!

    Looking badass dude! Id say save for works since they would suit the car so much. DRW are pretty played out as the cheap option....

    Love it dude, thing is nuts!

    thanks man. i was thinking of white 13 inch steelies for now till i can get my buddies 15x7 knock off works with 195/45/15 proxes since he's not selling them till he finds watanabes which will be a while ha but im just looking for something better than these horrible 5 slot mags. my wheel of choice would be widened stocks painted white with the 69 hub caps!

    oh trust me i wont paint it. i'd like to, but to much rust=to much of a cost to fix and paint ha. i'd like it to be repainted the stock color. the paint is actually flawless for being 41 years old but the rust is every where. fuck it, adds character!!

    so i appoligies in advance for the crappy pics but this is pretty much a little update to pass the time at work till im infront of my laptop ha ha.
    so about a week or two ago i busted a tie rod going through seattles gay bumpy roads. luckily i have aaa. so the guy with the flat bed cam, looked under it, got up and said "how the hell am i towing this?" ha heres the proof pic.

    figured id share my creative side with you guys ha
    heres my steering wheel (disredard the super cool jdm horn button, only one i have)

    than i got a cool idea to use my old spark plug socket for my l motor as a shift handle.

    not a big fan of the stock rearview mirror so went and bought a broadway mirror

    than bought a new deck. old one didnt have ipod hook ups:/

    than my favorite part.. LOWER!!!

    now its official. tucking 13's.. what five ten have u seen tuck 13's??? inagine what id do with 15's
    now some random pics of the car!!



    :]
