Very nice. 720s are my favorite Datsun truck. Way to save one.


Thank you!

Nice job, saving your truck. It looks great!  What kind of seats did you install? They look pretty good.

 

The seats are from a Rodeo as reported in many posts they sit a little high for my liking but are functional since I'm only 5'10. If I was 6 foot it would be an issue. I did discover that if you have OEM buckets that their brackets will transfer to the Rodeo seats giving them a lower OEM profile that is much more comfortable and retains full functionality. I actually have a small post dealing with the relatively minor modification involved.  http://community.rat...at-swap-thread/

That is a terrible photo host, cannot do anything with them photos.

 Sorry about that Sir. I fixed it. The host is Google and I'm running windows 10 as well.

I'll have to keep an eye out when I go into town for that bad boy, I like it.  If you ever feel like you are being stalked when driving this, don't worry, its just me.

 

Do you ever go the Cars & Coffee over by the Journal center off of Jefferson?

 

Haven't been there whats it about?

Just about every Saturday folks show up with their cars, stand around, look at cars, tell lies, and drink coffee.  It may be a somewhat smaller gathering now that cold weather is arriving. You never know what is going to show up, anything from my primered 1200 coupe to Lambo's and anything in between.  It has been awhile since I have gone since it is about a 35 mile drive.  People are usually there between 8:00am and 10:00am.  On the east side of Jefferson, north of Masthead there is a bank of America and a strip mall with a starbucks in it.

Wayno I am learning. I haven't done a lot of picture posting with a third party server since Photo Bucket decided to get rich. I thought I had it fixed when I did as Rjawm had suggested. The pics showed up from my computer. Everything looked good. I checked it today on my phone and none of the pics I had redone were showing up Then I checked from my Internet Explorer browser at work and they still did not show up. HMMMMM. So I got home and looked but everything was there, What the Heck? So I refreshed the browser and yep everything is still there. Then I remembered I'm using Chrome at home. I tried my Explorer browser and now the pics gone ahha! I kicked Google to the curb and am trying Imgur. Edited nearly the whole post. Is it working on your end now? Looks ok here but it did yesterday too.

I can see all the photos now.

I used to have Photolame(I will never refer to them as anything else), then I had Picasa(now a Google host), then I went without a host service for likely a year or more, I just opened a Postimage account, not that thrilled about it as I am likely going to be disappointed again as nothing happened to Photolame and they likely screwed a 100 million people, so it will happen again.
