hey guys. I just picket up a 71 510 from the junk yard. It had been sitting abandoned for over ten years out on some military property.
fortunately all the chrome trim and windows are intact and complete. the headliner is nice still (go figure) but the rest of the interior is shot, no rear seat, front seats totaled, carpet is no good.
some of the window seals look decent, still usable, some of the seals for the door windows are 50/50.
needs side mirrors.
needs a radiator.
needs a revamped suspension (low and stiff).
needs rust repaired and a complete respray.
it's got a 1979 5 speed transplanted in it already, but no motor.
moderate surface rust and a few minor rust holes.
I built a car-dolly so I can move the car around in the garage and get to work on it. and have most needed tools already.
that's all i can think of off the top of my head. I'm looking for sources for information and parts. where can i find wiring diagrams online? who has door seals? where to get new brake lines? where should I look for even a basic FAQ regarding these cars.
I'm not new to older japanese cars, but i am new to datsuns. thanks in advance, and i appreciate any help.
