I am placing this on the floor to kick around.

 

I have some spare time and material to knock out some production runs of Datsun Billet items.

 

What I am offering is a 25% discount off any of the single item price of any Billet part I make for Datsun.  Its the same discount I give to any of my manufacturing clients when 10+ items have been purchased.

 

I am also offering this discount on any item I could produce but have not already. Such as Camber Plates for various makes in the Datsun family. This would have a longer wait time for delivery and a thread for development purposes, but the offer would still carry 25% discount if enough people wanted in.

 

I make:

 

(510): RCA's,  R160-R180 Diff Covers,  CV adapters 930 / Type II,  Interior C Pillar Vents,  and 2 Door B Pillar Trim.

 

(B110-1200): RCA's,  Billet Control arms,  Billet windshield vent plates (Not the cowl scoops).

 

Anything Datsun can be made within reason. Please comment if you as a group have any interest with other Datsun makes. 10+ buyers would be required to get the large lot order discount.

 

If this materializes into a manufacturing purchase I would need a Ratsun member of good reputation ;) to champion the organization of the buy so I can focus on the production.

 

Thank you for interest.

Phone fail.


Where's the knock-off rolling chain-tensioner?
Where's the SU throttle cam mod?
Billet alternator slide.
Billet pulleys?

Anything Datsun can be made.

 

Can you get enough on board for the 521?

 

Al is close enough for R&D 521 work too.

 

Pulleys?  I can mill these but need to tool up.

Most of what I want is engine stuff.


I can't think of much I'd like to have for the 521.
Matching door pulls, openers, window cranks?
Heater knob? Glove box knob?

Yea aint much to do for a 521, theyre pretty simple. maybe that's what attracts me to them. Id definitely want a chain tensioner though.

Didn't really want to post the name of the product either.

That thing just looks too sweet.
I don't understand how the company thinks they should charge $800 for the thing.

Any one of those for this.

Damn northerners.

Gotta have the lab to work in. You can be a test mule if I can score a R&D engine though.

Ask Al.

If the price is reasonable I think it will be a big hit.

L6, L4, LZ.

Those things are sexy.
And I will be building a new L motor soon.

Combine cnc with someone who can print PCB's and get some LED sidemarker, tail light, and front parking/blinker stainless housings made!

Ha you haven't seen my 1200 tail light surrounds I have designed for the car. Was saving a reveal on these with the car.
