Hi I'm new to this forum. I desperately need help and was got here by accident and I hope many of u can help me indeed. I read so many topics of modifications and so and so.from morning till now to see that anyone has posted any regarding this top avoid any duplicate posts. But unfortunately i couldn't fin such. So seeking help from anyone who's willing to.

I own a 1979 datsun b310 and have started working on it recently. Goal is to modify it majorly in shape and then go under the hood. In terms of modifying I mentioned is not just adding scopes or turbo anything but major shape change. This may sound a pretty weird but where I come from there are no old JDMs. There is one 510 recently been imported and that's the only thing I know exists till up to date.

What I seek help in to make a progress I need few measurement details of a nissan KGC110 AKA Kenmeri 1976 2door. This might be wierd for u people but this effort is to make a kenmeri in a country where u can't buy or see one. The details I need at the moment are as following. forgive me i dont know what they call so i have added a picture of what i need with markings

front fender length

length of door(coupe model)

the set height from bottom

At the moment I need only these to make progress. Please if there is anyone could help its very appreciated.

Why? The B310 is cool enough on its own.


SR20s are easily swappable in to it.
Tons of aftermarket support for steering/suspension/brake mods.

It would be easier to upgrade and just rock the hell out of it.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

According to Wikipedia, the wheelbase on a 1979 310 is: 92.1 inches

the Kenmeri wheelbase is: 102.8 in inches ... I think there was a rare short nose Yonmeri, but it wouldn't be 10" shorter

B210 and 310s are too common here and I just can't tolerate what they do to them. They just make stock look worse than what I can explain. I just don't want to be my b310 in that way. it's not a car kit but some sort of a short clone? And lowrides or chambering is a nightmare because of road conditions. I really appreciate all the comments and I'll be updating few images. It was a car left to rot in a junkyard so filled with major rust. Rather restoring it thought of making a kenmeri model of of it because it. is always been my dream car

Most folks know it here as a Skyline(kenmeri), but we didn't get them in the USA.
