Is it easy to remove and replace and if so what changes would it make performance wise?

Rust is here in the sill of the bonnet RHS

Sweet car.

The older these get, the better the look I reckon.

I have a mate that eats Datsun rust for breakfast. BUt he's out of town til around the 1st of april. He's fixed many a rusty datsun. (Mine included)

Pretty straight forward mod sidedrafts but its almost pointless without a worked cam I think if u did both will add around 15hp

A festoon style bulb - they have different lengths so measure between the 2 terminals and get one sligthly longer than that.

Nice Y man, Do you have any pics on how you mounted the central locking solenoids? Have the same kit for my 180B just haven't got round to mounting the motors.

Sweet car man. What did you end up doing to repair that rust? Looks like an awkward spot to fix for sure!

 

Please tell me it's more than bungy cords holding the rear speakers down. If you to stop quick, those to the back of the head will not end well for anyone inside.

Will try get a pic for you tomorrow. I still need to sort the rear doors as the mounting gear that came with the set was for a certain diameter door lock bar thing. Need to jerryrig a wider brace. But for the time being its so nice to have fronts

 

 

Cheers Bling. Still havnt got round to it. But yeah very awkward spot. Must have been a leaking seal as the opposite side was fine. 

I actually hadnt thought about that so will look at getting them screwed into the parcel tray or something other than bungie cords

Glad I was able to help, and that you liked that grill.

If you want to get that cancer fixed, let me know, and I'll give you the number of a mate of mine who eats rust for breakfast. He's local too, and he does a good job.

It was sold to a guy I know, who then sold it to his younger brother.

I think his brother may have had it advertised a while ago. Not sure if he ended up getting a sale or not though.
