It’s been some time since I posted here but I traded my 620 for this 510 with an Sr20det. The plan is to turn this track car back into a daily by summer time!
Here are some pics
*edit*
Google drive is being sucky on my phone , I’ll get some up from my laptop

Welcome back can't wait to see the oics of the car. Kinda funny I have a 72 510 daily driver I took apart to completely redo as a kinda streetable/track build. I will get that car put together here down the way.

You accidentally put an extra “to” in the title. Should be “510 racecar daily” :)

sorry for the crazy long wait!

i got the cage cut out already, i got a dash, oem gas tank that looks almost brand new, spare four complete doors and some other stuff with it

it was as 4 door, whoever raced it welded the rear doors shut

its missing a front valence but it came with some huuge front bumper valence thingy? like the one edekalil posted earlier in the thread

someone did front and rear discs already but the rears dont have a bracket for the calipers. i still have to take a pic of the rotors because i have nooo idea what theyre from and theyre tiny

first question! is it possible to put all the window stuff from one door to another? the ones on the car are mint compared to the spares. or to take the door skin off the complete rusty door and use my yellow one on the car already? the rears are a whole other beast :/

Buy a pair of 2dr doors, bolt them up, cut out & move the B pillars back, leaving the 4dr rear doors in place, but you will cut into them to fit the longer 2dr doors!  The rear doors act as the front half of the rear 1/4.  Lots of body work!  Yes, the 2dr doors will bolt right up......just need to move the B pillars back!

 

All of the 68-72 4dr Sedan doors are the same (front Wagon doors similar but slightly different upper window frames, rear Wagon doors have completely different upper window frames).  The 68-71 glass is CLEAR, the 71-73 glass is factory TINTED.  Hard to tell difference unless you put next to each other with a white back drop.  All door hardware the same.

Downhill is faster too! Very enjoyable.
Good seats help.
