If it was only that easy... 

He hit the curb hard enough to make the T/C rod mount concave instead of flat where the bushings mount.  That's going to take a bit of massaging to get straight again. 

At least he didn't damage the body. I hate body work.


Rear Wheel Drive, the way God intended.
If a car is being pulled from the front, doesn't that mean it's being towed?

Now off this week, in between working on the building with my brother I plan to get the gas tanks in the Goon and sedan I took out. Get a 32/36dgv carb on the Goon. Get them back to driving on there on.

So are they finally making Thai reproductions of the SSS mirrors? 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

For that money I think I would go with Bprojects.  Unless they have skyrocketed in price since the last set I bought.

Just welded up the 510 spring perches onto my 280zx struts. I forgot that I hadn't ordered the strut inserts, so I hopped into rockauto.com and ordered a set. Now I get to hurry up and wait.

Got a 60 amp altinator and regulator. Found a headlight relay to clean up and get the lights going better on the 72 sedan. Still gotta find all the parts to do the front end together.

Got me 4 of these. Rota TBT 15x8, 0 offset. May not get tires until spring, after it warms up. They'll fit on my flared 510 and my Z; that's nice.

Took the 72 for a ride with my brouther.



That new 60 amp altinator really kicks up the lights. After I redo the light relay it should be unreal. What a difference.

edekalil did you recently tint the windows? I never noticed before. It looks good. Been thinking about tinting my windows but sometimes tint looks weird on 510s.

I did that way back in the 90s it's held up good but the car has been inside over that time.
Thank you
