    things started to get serious by now. the addiction was growing stronger...

    my third 510 1971 four door


    l18 with autotragic spun a main bearing. swapped in a ka24e


    it died in July 2009


    fourth 510 bought this 1970 two door from the 4 doors pay out. this thread is about this 510 i still own it. this car is basically back at this starting point.

    more pics coming. i have to re size them all.

    this is what i started with a 12/69 so 1970 2 door shell. the hoshino impul wheels i gave back. didnt like them at the time. sapporo wheels it was


    this was all the interior


    i did manage to snag the rear end set up with the sale. 411 r160 lsd with cv axles


    started swapping parts over from the wrecked 4 door. got the engine bay ready for the ka swap


    surprisingly the only thing to get mangled from the wreck was the radiator and fan. had to source replacements.


    engine is out of its donor


    car up on stands. i now find it less heart breaking if you lift the car over the engine. painted engine bays give me nightmares


    my buddy mikey came to help. i cant do it by myself. kas have a way longer tranny. its all about angle and muscle.you can see the carcass in the background.


    those aren't my burly arms. i was controlling the hydraulic ram and camera. he says it went in smoother than his l18 with zx 5 speed.


    mounts all bolted in

    swapped in a set of 06 350z seats


    transferred all the dash parts along with a black on black leather nardi classic. and rebuilt the heater box. its the pnw it gets cold.


    made and intake from spectre parts. the plenum and intake tube dont allow a full size battery. i dont want one in the trunk. odyssey pc680mj fits just right.


    couple months after i started working on it. almost ready to hit the streets

    Is the odyssey battery powerful enough for daily street use?
