Hi, I just joined the forum when I bought my ‘71 521 pickup. Im a car guy/mechanic/nissan enthusiast. I previously owned a ‘96 200sx with GTi-R Pulsar motor which I regretted selling. I picked up this truck because I always liked the jap mini trucks and Im a nissan fanatic. The idea is to SR swap it ratty style and do body work little by little. So far Im working on it on my spare time until I collect all the parts, tow it to my shop and get r done! Pics coming soon!!

Thanks bro..I will as soon as I figure out how, lol. I need a pedal box too. If anyone has one laying around or knows anyone that does would be greatly appreciated! The ones on the truck now are chopped up due to the last swap. Looks like they had a v8 in there bc the tunnel was worked on, has dual exhaust, and a Ford 9”. Right now its a roller.

Hopefully the frame mounts weren't all hacked up stuffing that SBC in there.

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!"
