    Greetings from SoCal

    My name is William. I am a 32 year old Iraqi War Vet, who got injured in Iraq. It didn't stop me from being the best I could be, and I would probably still be in the Army, but the injury prevented me from any further promotion(s) (I got to SGT E-5), so I was medically retired from service. I came back home to California and started back working on my 1973 Datsun 610 sedan. My father bought the 610 back in 1981 when I was 3 years old, and I got it when I was 14. Drove the crap out of it, parked it, and tried to figure out it's fate. Now the idea is to go for a retro-restore: L20B with sidedraft SUs, 4 speed automatic transmission, and some modern creature comforts like Infiniti G20 seats. It's a slow process, but it's coming along. Some of you may also know me from ratsun, with the same handle 'zerow'.

    FWIW, the late 90s Maxima uses seats that look almost exactly like the G20 seats only they are about 2" wider. The G20 seats might be too small for that car. :mrgreen:

    The Maxima seats are a great fit in a 510, so they should be cake in a 610. Also the wiring for the power seat motors is just a red wire to positive and a black wire to ground. :tu:

    Thanks, datsunfreak. I bought the seats a year ago. I wish I had known. I passed so many Maxima seats in order to get the Infiniti ones. (kicking self now...)

    What about the back seat? I did leave that one for last...

    If you look closely in that pic you can see what looks like the Maxima rear seat installed in my car.

    What I actually did was I took the Maxima rear seat and the 510 rear seat to an upholstery shop and had them peel the "skin" off the Maxima seat and pop it onto the 510 seat. Cost me about $100. :tu:

    Looks perfect and bolts right on. Can't beat that. 8)
