    my 1979 c210 240k 2000gt skyline project

    well here she is just picked her up today






    69000 miles, l24e engine, 20 psi oil pressure at idle and 50 + oil pressure above 3k rpm and that was after a 150 mile drive on minging old oil so im confident
    the engine is sweet.
    i have ordered some bullet fender mirrors and i got some wide arches but the arches i got arent really long enough, does anyone know where i can source some proper arch extensions for the 2 door coupe ?

    and what wheel width and offset to fill them ?

    Get a spirit level and measure hub (base of the wheel studs) to inside lip of guard.
    Figure out what you need from there.
    Being a Skyline, it will probably fit more rear than front.
    Probably some nice 16x7 front and 16X8 rear.
    All depends on the offset.

    Perhaps some nice Watanabes.

    Congrats on the purchase. Seems like a little gem.

    And I second the wats... They suit everything!

    Congrats, i've already seen it on the UK datsun board. When i bought my c210 i bought fender flares for it on yahoo auction, was a direct fit, specially made for the c210.

    well ive been quite busy with the old girl.

    my arch extensions are a no go so im now sourceing some genuine ones from japan.

    silly go faster stripes are now removed and also removed the wing mirrors, i have bullet style mirrors to go on the wings neext to the front wheels.

    the proper rear lights are ridiculous money for mint ones so ive gone for the classic style but in led.

    ive done a mock up for positioning with cardboard and painted it silver, heres the first mock up









    i am very happy with them ive just gotta decide where i want to position them so i can make the mount plate out of aluminium or stainless steel.

    Use stainless steel to avoid dissimilar metals corrosion.

    ive just got in now, made the back plates out of aluminium, sunk them right in as far as they will go and ive moved the reverse/fog as close to the indicator as i can.
    only had phone but took a pick





    im waiting for a hole cutter now to cut the holes for the lights.

    well i wasnt happy with the golf front splitter.



    im now in contact with feast japan autos,

    so far i have ordered a good second hand c10 boot spoiler and arch extensions and brand new front chin spoiler and a boss kit so i can fit my momo steering wheel.

    he is also getting me a quote on a full rear light set with all trim.



    i have now got the correct size rear number plate on and also installed the rear lights into an aluminium plate ive made recessed into the original trim.

    i just need some bezels now 6" outside diameter, 5" inside diameter but i cant find any anywhere ?
