Shit it's not like my cars are any different, there's a reason I don't put the mirrors where I can see them

I've seen guys make the mistake of dealing with paint stripper at work and not washing their hands before peeing, a other mistake you don't make twice

What special tool are you needing?

proper swivel or some expert advice on the three screws in top of the dash. Chester said he has a swivel he just didn't bring it with him. Somehow managed to small screwdriver and crescent wrench the ones in little miss but the ones in Frankentruck aren't behaving

It would be an interesting topic to find out how many people actually grease all the fittings in there datsun...
I know I have 12 or so on my 521... my 99 chevy has non...

my 96 Chevy gets greased every other oil change at the longest span, roughly 6k

When you get a chance could you post or send me pictures of how the mirrors are mounted please? More so the upper mount and a measurement off the angle please? I have a set that don't include the third leg that I was planning on mounting to something and it would be extremely helpeful

Moving on,



Chester came over to grab parts, we got stumped as neither of us had the right tool and will probably end up drilling out dash screws on the black truck. But progress has been made by way of cleaning out and removing trash for the black truck. I think I'll call it Frankentruck. Little miss lost her dashboard and seatbelts, will continue with teardown in 2 weekends.

I really only get a full free day every other Sunday while my daughter is with her mother, as the weather warms you may see more videos including my daughter "helping" out in the shop.

Did you keep stock steering or switch it out?
Yeah stock, just flipped the center link.


And last picture I see the stock steering box and answered my own question

yeah, really don't know why I asked, I'm going about this in a different way entirely.

so played hookie today, got down to the shop. got the truck off the truck, that's about it

 

 

did some measuring while the steering linkage was on the floor, the stuff in little miss matches with the ball joint stuff, so there's that

 

 

enjoy
