Did you do this yet Charlie?

Doesn't seem like it would be wide enough, those older trucks/cars didn't really have very wide tops till the late 50s.

 

 

 

Shawn is supposed to come buy and help me cut down an antique windindshield visor for my 520 tomorrow.

Hi Wayno.  This visor is off an early 1950s car.  It is too wide across the top of the windshield and in my opinion it is too deep front to back for the little truck.  I will take pictures of the process of fitting it to the truck.
 
This as how we plan to trim it down to fit.

Still looks like it will be pretty deep, interested to see how this turns out.

Kelmo, this was just to show how we plan on cutting it down.  The actual dimensions will be determined when we cut it.  It will probably be cut about a 1/3 to a 1/2 in depth.  Length only needs about 2" trimmed off.  The first thing will be to check the curve of the cab and the curve of the visor.  The curve is really close so we might not have to adjust the curve.

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!"

She probably had a rough day of eating, peeing, pooping.  My dogs have their own couch too(not really by my choice). :thumbup:

XXL just what I have documented on the roof build.

 

http://community.rat...921-shawns-521/

 

The 521 has suicide doors has been stretched 7", bed shortened, hood customized, the bed has the tailgate welded in and the gas tank door is one of the DATSUN letters in the tail gate.  Next time he comes over I will try to get a couple pictures of it.  The truck is bagged and has a Z24 5 speed in it.

I've got a '68 C10 with chopped top, raked front glass (I raked it back so the window openings wouldn't look so long like a chop tends to do... bonus: didn't have to split the roof!), suicide doors, hand formed bed, etc. Was starting a hood project and headlight project on it a few years back, but can't really do the work any more.

I'd love to see more pics of the Datsun.

....you mean you have a horse that you call a dog...   LOL!!  Are you sure the quad cab is enough room?


At about 6-1/2 months they start to no longer fit in a regular cab.

It's a horse that looks like a dog, must be a new breed.

That is why I want a quad cab truck. Gracie is growing like a weed again. I will probably settle for a Pathfinder.
