Not sure this is the exactly the right place to say "thanks", but I wanted to quickly say Thanks! to Alleycat for spending some time on the phone with me on a SR20DE swap into my Triumph.

 

Much appreciated!

I would like to see Triumph TR4 come together , also maybe consider CA18det both would be a nice driver for reasonable money spent vs. fixing an old motor with old trans .Also already like it , it has removable tunnel inside car.

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!"

Since we are talking about painting . it is a very hard job ! 1973 610 wagon tried to save monies had a couple different clears and base color in storage . so try and use old products that did not like each other caused a wrinkle reaction on doors and front fenders ,stripping them back to base color . Try and use good products pay a bit more and don't be a bodyman/painter .
