Current plan is to ship them to DaBlist because he's gonna find me a set of 14x8 D-slots for my 1200...

 

If only 1200's had 5x114.3 we could probably make that happen

 

D-slots in

 

4x114.3  14x6 boring and easy

 

4x114.3  14x7 doable

 

4x114.3  14x8  I think would take your talents to find

But people still love to ride the wooden roller coasters. The sounds, vibrations, jerks and jolts all add to the experience. Sure a wooden roller coaster may not be as fast, but it's sure a fun ride that can equally scare the crap out of you." - Annette

You know this is actually a fairly easy thing to do, right?   ^_^

 

But if I do it, it won't be for D-slots. It'll be for something like this.   :cool:


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

 

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

Never seen them in person except in 5 lug. Half tempted to try what vex210 did and get a set of 5 lug 14x8s and weld up the lug holes and redrill...

Let me know what you want. It is being parted out currently. I have some killer wheels for it too. Only reason it's still here is to help me finish your bumpers, then it's gone forever. Sorry guys, but a fair lady caught my eye and I strayed. If you look to the left of these words, you'll see a change has occurred.  ^_^

Now that we know you have traveled to the dark side of Datsun ownership...

We shall inform HybridZ that you are on your way over and that you apparently are a rich guy.


Nice knowing ya. Lol.

Yeah, it is kinda douchey over on this side...

That happened about 5 years ago...   :rofl:

 

 

and that you apparently are a rich guy.

 

Guessing you haven't seen the car yet...   :P

 

 

This is actually my third one. Had a '73 in early days, and a '76 about 5 years ago (when I signed up on HybridZ)...

I really could use a throttle cable, seeing as I managed to destroy both of mine being stupid...

 

Do tell about the killer wheels, I love my little 13's but if they're too awesome to pass up. . .

I will look and see what I have, but with DCOEs and an L18 swap, I'm not supremely confident a 210 cable is what's going it get it done. But it could, one never knows.

 

You probably need to get it all in and mocked up, then see what length you need, and we can go from there. 

 

I really wish you were close enough for me just to pop over and go "yeah, here's how you fix that"...   ^_^

I've thought about it, but it's not the site generating the content, it's the users. So why pay the site for user generated content? I understand they have hosting fees, but...

 

I like how that it's prominently displayed on personal profiles over there. Ridiculous. 

 

And apparently public shaming is supposed to make me pay them...   :rofl:

Some of my Aussie buddies (where I get most of my info) that have done the same swap, say it'll work but you're right, I'm a long way off from needing that so it can wait. 

 

As for the wheels, yeah they look nice and a good price at that but not my cup of tea. 

 

While I'm rambling on, you don't happen to have an H190 sitting around somewhere do ya?
