    Finally got my hands on another 210!

    Picked this up today, 1982 datsun 210:





    It definitely needs work and some TLC. While it currently has a lovely 3-speed automatic it did come with an almost complete five speed swap, just missing a flywheel. Debating whether or not to swap that in or sell it off to fund an KA swap. Although I need to look into what all would be needed to do that if any one can point me in the right direction.

    I'm just happy to have another 210 on my hands there just something about cruising around in old datsuns that brings a smile to my face.

    So current plans:
    Fix the door hinges as they are just worn.

    Sub were at one point installed and there are few weird things with it so I want to go through the electrical and fix up loose ends and unconnected wires.

    Replace the struts as I still have a set of KYB GR-2s I never got around to installing on my old 210.

    Go about at least stopping the rust. Not too bad as it is mainly just the doors that have holes, did not notice any chassis cancer.

    Maybe repaint the wheels.

    Give me a call, I can walk you through it. If you don't still have my number, your dad does.

    Will have to pass on the doors, mainly focused on function first, I'll worry about looks later.
    I'll have to keep an eye out for parts now that I know what chassis to try and find. :wink:
