At least that's what they called it.

 

A friend of mine emailed me this link the other night - https://www.treadmag...ild-thread-die/

 

It is a short article about a build thread I put together on a BJ74 Land Cruiser that I built for a customer in SF - http://forum.expedit...gen-Motorsports

 

Petersons's 4WOR already did a feature on this truck - http://www.fourwheel...en-more-unique/, so I was surprised to find that someone wanted to feature the build thread.

 

I know it's not Datsun related, but I'm here every day, so I figured I'd share.

Damn, that’s a beautiful build Matt. I’m not done reading it but wow. The rear axle setup is some serious badassness.
Chrome door handles are under rated.

Wellll, I always said, if they fit better, I'd do one, seeing as either the firewall goes, or the radiator goes elsewhere. You are kinda to go to guy for shoehorning! Lol probably do something like a Z31 someday, for some reason I have always loved the 84/85 turbo. But smog regs kinda kill the fun factor with V6 power.

 

Eventually I'll just turbo this VG going into the Datsun ;)

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!"

It'll fit. My dad is a television repairman. He's got an awesome set of tools.

 

That is some nice work. :cool:

Thanks.
