So I took the day off from work to spend quality time with the C10.
First the bad news: I got wrapped up in what I was doing, and although the title showed up at 11am (thx Eric & Ryan!), I waited until 4pm to go to AAA office... And then just before they closed, they told me they couldn't process my paperwork and I had to go to actual DMV - lame.. So registration will have to wait until Monday.
Now today wasn't all bad. Quite the contrary, so on to the good news!
Pulled the stock plugs - haven't seen NGK BP7ES
in a while... I thought US base model was BPR7ES...
A bit fouled... lol.... I swapped in a new set of BPR6ES I had lying around for the S30 (sorry, Z!). Will try a set of 7ES and maybe 8ES just to confirm heat range... we'll see:
Pulled the Solex 44s so I can send them off to Todd Walrich @ Wolfcreek Racing... I called over there and there's a 2 MONTH wait time
right now... Busy busy guy, but he does great work, so it's worth it... In fact the shiny Mikuni 44 in the pic I've had for almost 10years and Todd just rebuild those (they were meant for the S30, sorry Z!)
With the carbs off, time to do a little investigating... Nice stainless bundle of snakes... Will probably eventually pull the wrap off because it promotes rust unfortunately and get them jet-hot coated... Not right now... But sooner rather than later I guess...
Got the cell phone in for a close detail shot, and surprise surprise! Someone put a lot of love in here... match-ported to carbs & head - really nice job too!
I pulled passenger seat, removed JDML carpet kit, and took pics of floor pan with dimensions.
Sending that off to Charlie @ Zedd Findings / Datsun Z Parts - I talked to him over email and he's considering making pans for us too! More news on that later...
My interior C-pillar trim is a bit rough. We drove down I15 last saturday with all windows down. Halfway down the trip, I noticed my upper C-pillar trim panels were flapping in the breeze - masonite is warped from age, and panel fastener clips ripped out.
Thankfully the vinyl trim is intact so I'll recycle it...
Going to fix that tomorrow / sunday - pics shortly.
