A few goodies for tonight:


Fuse box and engine bay wiring harness and drip rail from one of the Twins:







Plus this!




Anyone want to guess what's in the box (besides "ADDITIONAL PARTS")?

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!"

If you said race seat, you win!




I'm surprised no one has asked about wheels/tires yet.


We wanted to get the seat in there right away because the cage is really short and far forward and we needed to see if we have to make any adjustments.  Jeff is the tallest straw so with the seat on the floor and helmet on, we find we are not within the rules which is top of helmet 2" below the top of the roll cage.




So, we will have to flatten or lower the floor.  Enter Sam and his cutting wheel of death!






A second mock-up with the seat on the plywood shows we will be okay with a flat floor.


Sam also got the window net mounting mocked up. 




While Jeff worked on the engine bay wiring harness




And I POR15'd everything but the actual floor pans since we are still kind of working on those...




For those keeping score, we have a LOT to do and not much time to do it so we each have a homework assignment this week.  Check back for progress...

You ain't kidding!  The time is counting down.   







Engine bay harness ready to go in.   Moved the fuse box inside since there is roll cage in the way of the stock location.  






I don't have any other pictures :(

What wheel and tire setup are you planning to run?
