That plenum is gorgeous, Matt. Nice work.

I'm interested in door sill plates for the 510 if that's something you'd be interested in, let us know to see if anyone else needs them as well. 

 

Should probably talk to Ben Lillard on facebook

I have, he doesn't seem interested. My mind was kinda blown when he released the ones for the 620. I can only assume the market for them would be less than ones for the 510.

I wonder how close those sills are to a 521.

I've got a 620 in the driveway. I can measure them for you. I thought about modifying some for the 510, but I'm just not that good. So I think I'll hold off.

I will look into stamps for doing a simple sill. This stuff is usually huge $$ for initial tooling.

An idea doesn't work unless you do.

That's cool. Guess I was wrong. I'm glad they decided to make them, I'll be getting a hold of them soon.

 

I'm also glad they aren't giving the flat part a lip to raise it up off the rocker. Should help keep them straight. Hell, they are thicker as well, and not soft. I'm in.

They are 510 interior vents for the C-pillar

And as the Gato says. They’re awesome.

No wonder....as a 620 guy, I couldn't figure out what they were.

Well not many 620 guys come to me for parts. Mostly Z, 510, and 1200.

 

All the other Datsun makes stay silent.

For the 1200 guys.

 

I have material and parts to make these as well. Need to fit a little wider wheel without the rubber hitting your fender? These can be adjusted from factory track width to -2" OAW. 

 

PM if interested.
