I definitely had to cut some of my tunnel.
Maybe 3 or 4 inches.

The only Dick that made my mouth water. Thank you sir.

Well. When I went to his place, I'd Usually end up getting more than one...

I didnt cut any. Just got lucky idk i think my cab "may" have bigger cab mounts raising it enough to clear. The reason i say this is because me and my buddy both pulled our torsion bars out.
He tucked a 15x8 wheel on a 195 45 tire. My truck sat about an inch higher than his.
Also updates.
My buddy justin can de-pin and set up the harness to wire in very easy and no need for the can am box.
5 wires and done. Fully tucked too.
Relays and new loom.
Regular loom $300
Mesh loom for cleaner look $350
Harness

A thread should be started for that. At least a classified.


Ask Red-eye about creating a lone thread for this "service."

This is a ka24de swap into a 71 521. In regards to the transmission. IMG_20170418_171037_zpsm8pxvhaw.jpg

This is using a hardbody ka24e transmission and black market mounts. Way shorter than the 240sx trans. So you can keep your bench seat...

Nice to see how that Hardbody transmission sits. The 720 transmission looks like the best option for keeping stock floors.

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!"

Okay Carlos, I looked three times.  I know you loathe people who don't read things but for the life of me I can't find Justin's contact info for the wiring harness you posted.  Am I stupid (don't answer that) or did you not get a chance to post it yet?  ;)
