freebie! Some guy had a garage cleanup, had this old campertop for a long bed datsun, so I grabbed it. Not sure if I'm gonna use it or not.... It needs all the gaskets replaced and but overall condition is ok

Couple of weeks ago I took the mazda and went on a roadtrip and ended up with a bent bandit 1200 and a Z20E with a 5speed manual :)

I also got a spare head with manifolds....

 

On boxing day I installed it in my datsun....sort of ;)

I also tried to fire up the datsun and it fired up on the third try, not bad considering it hasn't been started in a month or two, warmed it up and took her for spin quite literally since it's on summer tires :)

Time to get this back on the road! First priority: Getting it road legal, as first posted it failed the "periodic vehicle control" based on all the balljoints beeing shot, endlinks deteriorated, no function on the RR brake, tires beeing to old and cracked and visible oil leak from the valve cover.

 

So, in to the mess of a garage:

dismantle everything:

Get help from local shop because nothing I did was enough to free the balljoints! Assembling is the easy part ;)

The rear right brake cylinder was replaced, upon dissasembly the old one was seized and the cylinder had rust water under the rubber seals...

 

I also have some brand new 15x8 chromespoke wheels that's getting new rubber this week so all that's sorted then I'll get it approved and road legal by the end of the week hopefully!! :)

New wheels installed:

Screwed up on the ET though:

So I'm kind of on the lookout for some fender flares, preferably the oem 4x4 but if anyone knows anything else that fits then give me a shout. I have looked at the "universal JDM fender flares" you find on ebay but I'm not sure... Anyone have some pics to convince me?

How about these they are much better looking.  They are 2" wide.

Yeah I saw those on ebay, but I want them black I think. Maybe try plasti-dip them first.

The oem steelies are in the garage. Might use them for winter tires if I decide to use it wintertime.

That's about the temperature most Scandinavians start to get really uncomfortable ;) generally where I live summer is usually anything from 10-35 Celsius in the shade. :-)

I get a weird feeling when I see a pushrod J motor under the hood of a 720 truck. I can't quite describe it.

 

Nice truck.

Needs a new clutch and resurfacing of the flywheel since it was rusted stuck...

Be nice to have wood paneling inside my shop.

 

Mines a bit bigger than yours though...

I like the little rear bumpers on your truck! I like them the more I look at them. It's the best one I've seen on a 720. Now I want a set for mine! Did they even put them on American sold trucks? I wonder if I have the bolt holes on my frame for them already...

My first 320 came with a set like those. In my dumb youth I threw them away.
