    TE72_Sunny's 1980 B310 Sunny

    I've been a member for sometime and I think it's time for you guys to take a look at my B310. I bought her off from my brother's neighbor in the Summer of 2009, who intentionally bought it for his grandson who never really cared for the car and left her sitting in the garage. The owner prior to him chopped up her springs, removed bumpers (which I hate the fact he did), filled up the hatch with speakers and put on some 13" Baby Supra rims with Datsun (Sentra) center caps. The car is obviously stock, automatic, with no mods whatsoever and I left her sitting in the garage for a year. This is how she was looking a few months ago:



    Speakers in the trunk gives it that damn boat look!




    Engine



    Interior - All original






    This is what she had in the hatch giving her the boat look with all that extra weight :x

    Luckily I was fortunate enough to sell it on CL and made a few $$$'s 8) and this is how the hatch is now.

    I love my old school rides as simple as can be.

    So in April I ended up buying a very clean set of Longchamps, 15"x7" front/15"x7.5" back, from a member at club4ag forums in Cali, thanks Oliver! This is how I got them... very clean!


    Though, I ran into a problem.... which was the clearance in the rear. The tires were wrapped in 195/50/15 in front and 205/50/15 in the back, and were not fitting in. I didn't want to roll the fenders in, or in this case the quarter panels, so the only solution was tire stretching... this was my intention anyways :lol: . Luckily, with the money I made from the speakers I bought a set of 155/60/15 tires. So this is how she sits now.

    Notice, no more boat look. (I still think an inch less from the front is needed.)

    have you considered rolling the inner lips of the fenders? that looks like way more than enough clearance

    I want to avoid rolling them, but I got over that when I put on the new tires. I have to roll them in in the future if I get wider rims. BTW that's one hot S12 you got there... I hated them at one point, but you made me a believer, keep up the good work!

    Nice looking car. Too bad about the springs though. But you should be able to find a new set.

    FYI, you can buy fiberglass JDM bumpers here:

    A nice affordable option that would make the package complete. 8)

    Nice b310 dude!!! it's so clean and look a million times better with those damn ugly bench bumpers. it looks great slammed too...did u cut the springs or did u get lowering springs? 205 tires of any size(13inch etc) are too big for a b310...mine has 205s and it has bad clearance issues...at stock ride height. check out my b310!!
