but then stripping, grinding and repainting the undercarriage while laying on your back? That is on another level. Amazing!
Haha..... thanks .. ...... I had the back wheels up on ramps .... . and the front all the way up on jackstands
... I'm not shure what was worse,,, the grinding, the welding, or the painting upside down ..... . . next time it's a rotisserie and sandblaster job
I pulled the motor out of my 710 on March 6th.. . the plan was paint the engine bay, and have it running again in 3 weeks ....
... the 3 week paint job turned into 6 weeks ....
.... and uh.... .. well ......... 7 months later:

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.
You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

...seems to me we are being held hostage by these candy-ass pussy, limp wrist, hanky twisting, girly-man, cry when Forrest Gump's mom died, crystal gazing, Om chanting, sandal wearing, whiny voiced, oh I broke a nail, fucks.

im thinking about the ka for my 710 sedan, started looking into it and gathering parts now. Have you seen anything on the 710 that wouldnt have ben an issue for the 510 guys?
The motor mounts on most 510 swaps don't "need" to be moved back .... . . my motor mounts on the crossmember were moved back and modified to accept the stock S13 mounts
The tranny crossmember is SO different from 510's .. .. the PO welded up a flat stock x-member . .. . it works,, but I'm getting a new one made when I do my exaust
.... there isn't much room for the exaust to tuck even with a custom x-member and custom exaust
Sway bars: .. just like every other part for a 710 motor swap . . . either make a custom one or go to austrailia and hope some 180b swap parts fit
