Where did you get your bushings from?
Overseas?
Or did you figure out US equivalents and get them from Energy Suspension or other equivalent?

The bushings I got are whiteline. I got them from datsport. I tried to get them from the USA distributors and one in Canada but they were all more money and a long lead time. Datsport had them in stock for less.

Here are my new pair of wheel cylinders and set of shoes from Adam @ feast auto. They were an awesome deal better than getting them from rubber soul, V50, or nissan USA. They are the same as a datsun 510.

If you look at the first picture on Hightopfade you can see the tyre's a 185/55-14 so a stretchologist may be able to tell the rim width.

I noticed that my brake fluid would disappear. So up that car went to find out where it was going.

Image

Turns out the master was leaking into the booster and then dripping down the frame rail. So I installed a new master and things work great. Then I decided that I wanted to update the headlights. All older Nissan's and datsun's use a ground system to turn on the headlights. This makes it difficult to put in H4 style lights with out relays. So I started thinking of how I wanted to do this. I didn't want to just add a bunch of stuff to the engine bay. I then remembered that I had this relay box.
Image

So this would replace the two relays for the headlights, the horn relay and have an extra for some fog lights or something later. Now because I was updating the relays I thought why not change up the fusible links. this took some searching on the interweb but I didn find this.

Image

So with these two items in hand I when and pulled the engine bay harness.

I tagged all the ends and then opened up the harness. I removed and added wires for the headlights and moved wires around so they would come out of the harness in a cleaner location. I need to make some wires longer to reach where I wanted the relay box to go. I went on the interweb and found http://www.riwire.com/. This place has colored wire with colored tracers and the price is fair. So I ordered some up.

Image

Now all the wires will be the correct color and they are on a wiring diagram. I mean you cant have every wire in the car be black and red.

I had a plate made to hold the relay box in the same location as the stock low beam relay. and I also started to wire up the relay box.
