    120why's 75 Datsun 120y

    Cut off the h150 brackets to mount onto the h165. Will need to make sure I weld these on perfect! aiming for a non cert swap as the diffs are practically identical Yarns heeeeerre

    Been a while since an update, A14 has been running well. Finally got the jetting better, smoother to drive and more fuel efficient! Up'd the main jets and changed the emulsion tubes to improve the change between idle and main jet. Its still a little bit lean, but have spent far too much lately on trial and error with finding the jets. In November, my diff became seriously whiney. Ended up buying a 2nd hand head to put in, this seems to be working okay for now. Sourced a Datsun H165 ute diff 4.11 ratio, this needs some mods to fit but will be far stronger than the h150 thats in the car at the mo. Will be working on this throughout the year when I visit home during breaks from uni Took the car to Caffeine and Classics at Hampton Downs after xmas, also came to the Oldschool Drags at Meremere!

    BOOTH TIME... after a year sorting rust, this was very exciting

    So this piece was very fun, hence why I left it till last. Unfortunately this was after the undearseal stage so some of that burnt off

    Exciting to see the underseal go on after hours of wire wheeling and rust work plus rust treatment.

    B310 strut top mod into the b210. this lowers it by about 30mm by bringing the strut further up. You need to prise the lip with a cresent gently

    Rear L/h lower quarter. There is a drain hole here which seems to get clogged with gunk and must rust out the steel around. The lower area was rusted also, so re stitched and plug welded it in

    Roof seem was a bit rusty. Also the battery box was almost non existant, so a new piece was made to replace.

    Creating the angle seemed to be difficult, its not perfect, but a little bit of bog should fix it
