This tool made it easy to shave off the plastic pieces.

The high beam sits in loose with the retainer ring, that's because the OEM sealed beams have three little glass blocks that space the beam out enough for the retainer ring to compress it down and it also has three other glass blocks that prevents it from turning. For the next ones I cut, I will attempt and leave some plastic to work as the glass blocks do. Grrrr tedious work.

7.25" length space for a battery. I was thinking of using a miata battery but then I found a beefier one at the junkyard that might work and took measurements. 7.25" x 6.5" Walmart part number, VP-26 or VP-26R. They sell for $50 new with a 1 year warranty. 540 CCA.

I think I'm going to give it a try; I want HIDs and the miata battery might give me issues if I accidentally leave the lights on for a couple minutes.

I like it. I like it a-lot

 

There are small size batteries that are still very powerful but they cost a bit. Think $120-150 ea, but brand new. Not something you'll get if you're limited to wrecking yard prices.

Considering how difficult it is to find hoses that fit in 1-3/8" to 1-1/4" I instead got hoses that were 1-1/2" x 1-1/4" and used rubber inserts.

I looked everywhere for rubber caps I could use as inserts with a 1-1/2" outer diameter 1-3/8" inner diameter and these were the only ones I could find.

I will be creating a how to thread on how to clean and whiten your old yellowed master cylinder reservoirs.

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!"
