You know, they make a dual sidedraft intake for it...    B)

No hood clearance issues with that...   :devil:

We were actually having that same conversation this weekend.  I could do that and put the other weber on the green 1200.

 

You need to stop it with these suggestions.........so, should I get the side drafts for the 200sx then?

 

 

That would be gawdawful sexy wouldn't it?

Well, I said I had to have it....and now I do. Weekend before this one I went down to see Datsunfreak and check out the wagon he had for sale...and bought it.  Went this weekend and picked her up.  Great guy, great deal.

It is a little over 600 miles one way between his place and mine so I put in 2400 miles over the past 2 weekends and well...alot of hours behind the wheel.  Right now I have no idea what direction I am going to go with it.  The one sure thing.....gonna make her at least good enough to drive around the block( it has been 25 or so years since I have driven a goon).  Then I want to get her good enough to make the Williams show in AZ this October probably in the diamond in the rough category as I really don't think I can get her done completely by then.

 

Oh, shut it ya'll let me see if I can get some pics off PB

Tucked away in the garage with her new siblings....green one goes to get blasted tomorrow and then off to body and paint......I should really update the thread on that one now that I think of it

That is one nice garage.


If you're gonna be stupid, you better be tough!!!

 

Laissez les bon temps rouler!!

 

The road goes on forever and the party never ends!

This thing got moved into the "Hey, lets work on this car" spot over the weekend.  Started getting stuff out of the engine bay and looking for the obvious replacement parts.

I figured before I hit the 5th year of ownership, I should do something.

 

And yes, I took a couple pics and will post in the next day or two.  Can't believe this thread is this old.

Time for the windshield to come out. Put tape all around the outside and do some careful cutting.
20axxBX.jpg

BmFsNKG.jpg
Took my time doing this so as not to scratch any paint or slice myself wide open should the blade come free. Used both hands for stability.

After making those cuts, the trim lifted right out.

Then I started to make some cuts to find the edge of the glass.

Once that part is complete, the glass will lift right out, and with any luck it will be in one piece.

Well did a little bit of work today......
bu6dtzK.jpg
Pulled these Obi Wans off.
Damn, they are a bit dirty.
9VWVnTg.jpg
Little bit of simple green and some Q tips......

Then, how in the French toast does this damn thing come off? It seems to be stuck in the middle where the turn indicators are.
xHQI7rI.jpg
Pretty sure the indicator lamps are holding it back but I can't get my dick skinners back there to remove them. I also think there should be enough harness to let it move in order to disconnect it. I am missing something and I am sure it is one of those "gees I can't believe I missed that" type of deals.

The light sockets twist 1/4 to lock in back there. Maybe some long needle nose to twist them?

Welp, guess that is on the agenda for tomorrow. I do have a set of needle nose that are about half as long as my mothereffing arm so........

 

The windshield is out so that helps a little but it seems there is a metal plate that will keep me from going in that way.  Gonna try it from the center where the heater controls are.  I can't help but think the whole thing should come out then disconnect the harness.  I have this piece out of the 4 DR and do not see where the indicator lamps would cause this issue.

 

Communist bastards that they are.

In the top left corner of the edit screen tool bar is a Button (BBCode Mode), Click that and it will show the picture name/code. Makes it easier to find the pictures.

Wish I had seen this sooner, because that is exactly what I would have said to check first...   ^_^

 

 

 

I tell everyone I sell a 510 to, call me me if you have any questions. No one ever calls...   :P

The jacked up part about it is that I was positive I had removed them and with the crappy flashlight I was using and the ol' bifocals not in the right spot....well.
