Skyblue how you doing?

Im doing well. But my Datsun's are hurting. The truck is a never ending mess. The 510 is slowly failing. I have to baby them both until I can get some time and money to them. On the plus side, I recently got a company vehicle so now I don't have to commute with the Datsuns.

Wayne, I thought it might have been the exhaust at first, but it sounded different than exhaust rattle.

d.p., haha. If it didn't look so cool I'd gotten rid of it a long time ago. Lol

Tanker, thanks. I hope it's nothing. But it sure does sound like something.

Mainer, I'll try that next time.

There was, however, something troubling that happened. about halfway across the bay bridge i started hearing a rattling noise coming from below me whenever i let off the gas or accelerated. it was a loud metal rattle. i pulled over to see if the drive shaft was loose or something but found nothing wrong. so i limped her home at about 45-50mph and it would do it sporadically. sounded like it was coming from the transmission. *sigh* just when i think the truck is doing well some gremlin pops its head up and says fuck you. Maybe the load of the bike was too much for the old girl. I was on the edge of my seat all the way home just praying something didn't explode. Thankfully i made it home safe and sound. But now i have to investigate this cause it sounded real bad.

#1519569 I know a wagon chick that bought a 521. Lol

Rust in california isn't gonna spread very fast. unless you live in a coast town where the salt air will reach it. I've had my 521 for almost 7 years and none of the surface rust has shown any signs of cancer. Even the small cancer spots that are there are still the same size. just keep it dry and all will be fine.

I guess I'm late to the party. Sweet truck! That color is the best color for 521's. I am a bit biased tho. lol. I have the engine bay bulb too. just clean the contacts, get a new bulb and it will turn on when you turn on the headlight switch to the parking lights on. not the brightest, but if you're stuck somewhere in the dark it's better than nothing. Great work so far.
