It's been about 2 years since I sold and regretted selling my 2 dr sedan and when I came looking for another one, I was happy to find out that Zian was selling(and kinda local). Only took 18 hours round trip to pick her up! Lol.

So after following this car from Cali through Texas and NY, then West Virginia, she's now at her new home back in New York!

Since its been raining. I haven't had a chance to clean her up but I did pick up a new XS battery and relocated it under the pass seat. Fit perfect and now I can put the back seat back in.

My plans are to clean up some wiring, undercoat her, thinking about just clear coating the entire car to protect the paint/look she has now.

What I need to do...
The gps gauge I believe is the issue that the battery is slowly draining, need to re-wire to ignition power source.

Have a dyno apt Monday to get her tuned!! Cold starts are a problem so hopefully he can figure that out. She runs pretty good after she warms up. Also starts Rt up after she's warmed up. Just the initial start up is tough.

And one tire replacement since there's a buldge in it.

Last thing in need to do is figure out how to box in the fuel cell. Just want to clean up the cut out that someone did to fit it in.

I'll be doing all of this while I'm driving her (only sunny days) until the first snow. I can't wait to see how it'll be after the tune!

Yes I will!
Just had my first test drive, 1/4-1/2 throttle.......it's insane. Don't want to get in it till the tune is setup and I have piece of mind. Just wanted to make sure I cold get to the dyno! ;) 10 min drive 3 thumbs up. Lol.

I just finished rewiring the head lights the correct way and the speedo gauge to Ignition power.

I still disconnected the battery for now since I'm not sure if anything else is draining it. When I start really drink her next week, I'll leave it hook up!

I'll give her a good bath next week and take some current pics.

Here's a battery relocating pic(the test fit) the opening in the seat/cross brace is perfect to gain access if I need jump. Worked out perfect!

Does it still have open velocity stacks or does it have air filters now? 


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

This is not an answer to my question.   :rofl:

 

Not having some kind of air cleaner housing around the stacks makes for a VERY loud car when on the throttle. Some cars I've thought had an overly loud exhaust actually had an overly loud intake.  ^_^

Miss understood you, there is no type of air clearer housing or box around them. That does make sense though. I'll have to look into to that first. Thanks!!

Glad to see you back in a dime Brian. Following this thread. Let me know if you need anything.

Also, I've determined, I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.
As I'm sure a lot of the old school datsun guys are.



Enjoy the Ride!
