Yeah, I tossed what was left of my rain guards, but obviously can see why you'd protect your shiny l20 from road slime. My engine bay is strictly for function. If you touched my engine, there's be a clean spot, if I touched yours, you'd probably have to wipe the only fingerprint off lol
Whether you think you can, or think you can't..... Your datsun still needs you :)

finally.....

 

sound deadened the doors sunday ... welll i dissembled and reassembled with some clean up ... Hans actually put the shit in the door......the ole 521 gives u no access to inside the door ....usually i can get my elbow slipped in but on these they were clearly built to be serviced by smaller people....luckily hans had done his already and was able to get inthe door... so i cleaned all the mechs and made new vapor barriers while he applied...then i reassembled the door while he did the other...then we went and crashed some planes... oops...

 

 

suprised how much difference this made ..... way quieter .....also surprised how much difference putting the valance on made ...i get lot less wind noise in the cab since reinstalling the valance...and i like the look more.....sounds like those leafs eagle adam grabbed for me can be picked up on weds for more low.... yeah!!!!!thanks adam....u da man...

 

rumor has it another south sounder lowered his 521 another inch all the way around....hoping he posts some pics, even if in the dark, soon...

 

this is sad my friends have always known me to have shit as low as possible and definately the lowest out of the crew and im the last in our 521 collection to be low.....tear.....just the jealousy talking here...the leafs are only temporary till the real low can be achieved...

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.

lower stamped 521 dash.... flat black soon to be stripped off.....flat black is a very thick powder and even with only one coat it filled the metal stamping in more than i would like....gonna strip it back off and do it possibly wheel color...or possibly black mettalic.....phixius dash turned out good a gunmetal color and it didn.t fill the stamping in at all

Haha, you have no idea..... or maybe you're starting to notice..... but those ricer kids LOVE Casual!  We went to the end-of-the-year Golden Gardens and almost every other car pulling into the lot had some sort of Casual sticker on it.
