Been a lurker for quite some time now-but finally found myself a 510.
Stumbled upon Brad's (Mr. Bohica) 71 4dr on craiglist and after a couple weeks of talking things over I made the trek down to Maryland and picked it up. Super stoked to finally have a 510- already have it registered and driving around.
Still needs a bit of love though- First things to take care of
-Find out why the battery isn't charging (got a good 10 starts or so out of it no problem; and then nothing this evening at work, got a jump, 45 minute drive later, and nothing when I got home)
-Get all the gauges hooked up- some of them sometimes work?? Temp gauge worked for half the drive to work today- tack bounces around sometimes- need a speedo cable as well, and need to connect the fuel gauge
-Need to get some air cleaners on the stacks- got some from Brad but they are definitely not deep enough so need to decide what I want to run from their
-come up with a way to connect either a belt or harness for the passenger seat
-decide what I want to do about mirrors- need some more time with the wink mirror to decide if i like it or not
-transmission has a pretty good whine in 4th and 5th; but that could be just the shear lack of deadening material
- would like to relocate the ebrake as well sometime-
Probably going to leave the paint and body as it is for right now- same for the interior- although i may toss a head unit and some speakers in there- this beast is loud and something to drown the sound out might help
There will definitely be plenty of questions... and any suggestions are welcome.. Ill do my best to keep this updated.
Thanks again Brad! Stoked to have a 510!
Here are some oics of the journey- 7:30am to 9:30pm- Tacoma hauled it like a champ-
Uhaul didnt want to rent me the full trailer... Said the Tacoma wasnt big enough- Called the place in Stamford and they didnt care at all
Riding a little bit low; fully loaded;
What a view to have for the 6 hour ride back
Night shot- little bit of editing made for a cool shot- love the yellow lights and the grill badge
And here is a link to Brad's thread for more history on it-
