Thanks for the info, Eric. I won´t drive the car that far since the mileage on it is so low.


See I have never understood that...?? :?
What's the point in owning such an awesome classic if you're not going to enjoy it on the roads as it was meant to be?
Absolutely no disrepect intended Perra! Just my thoughts... :wink:


The thing is that the car has only 10000km on the clock from new. I don´t plan on driving it from where I live to the Netherlands which is like 1250km one way. I´ll drive it to local meets in Sweden, buy some ice cream and generally just enjoy it. Don´t worry, the car will be used. :)

I wouldn't do a thing to it. Just leave it as it is.

Thanks! As I´ve written in this thread, I do have some plans for it, even though it´s just cosmetic.

Yesterday I visited mr. Manenschijn's Datsun / Nissan party, first time I ever saw a Hako in real life. His GLC 10 is still a work in progress, but it's coming along nicely. Bodywork and paintjob are top quality:

I´m sure Jan´s car will look great when it´s done. However, maybe you should start its own thread instead of posting in my project thread? ;)

Sorry Perra, but I didn't want to start a whole new thread just to post two pics, your project thread seemed the right place to add these pics, hence the thread-hacking. Förlåt!

No, I didn´t. I want to make 3D-print copies first in case something should happen and I´d end up needing another one. They´re on the to-do-list. :)

I picked up the wheel centers from the paint shop today. I think it´ll look great. All that´s needed now are new bolts and to get the wheel "rims" (is that the right word?) polished. Then new tires need to be bought and get the wheels installed on the car.

Maybe you can give me some tips on which tires I should go for? The new rims are 7.5"x16" so if I go for 215/40-16" the circumference would match the ones I have now perfect. The question is if I´ll get a "balloon-feeling" with 215 so I should go for 205 instead? What are you guys using on your cars?

I´ve come to a dead end when it comes to finding new bolts for the wheels I bought. SSR don´t produce them any more and I haven´t found any supplier that makes bolts with this special sized head. I guess I just have to freshen up the ones I have.

I just realized I haven´t let you know that the wheels are painted and I think they look great. We´ll see how it all looks when I finally decide on tire size and get them on the car.

These titanium ones seem reasonably common, and M8 lock washers are available as both flush and proud. Assume you've tried an on-line supplier?

Thanks Neko. I haven´t seen those before but I´ve searched a lot of the on-line suppliers. 99.9% of all M8 bolts are made to DIN standard which makes the heads 13mm in diameter.

I´m just waiting for the tires to arrive. Then I´ll get the complete wheels on the car asap and get some pics taken. :)

The wheels are on the car and I´m happy with the result. The only downside is that I desperately need to lower it. It was bad before, but with the lower profile tires it became even worse. It´s not so bad at the rear but up front it needs to come down maybe 4-5 cm, which means I have to lower it at the rear as well. I´m working on a solution. :)

Here´s a sneak peak of what it looks like with the new wheels on. I can´t get a shot of the whole car until I take it out of the garage so this will have to do for now.
