1982 Nissan Datsun
204 thousand ks on engine
Ive recently sent the s110 to have rust patches, patched welded, primed and painted, bought some black on chrome rims (racing spec) "even though its sitting with a stock standard L-18e under the hood". I also scored some super low Cobra springs for the front and lows for the rear. Now all i need is to finish my savings for a s15 black top SR20det, new struts and to update the brake system to withhold the power
This 1uz-fe four cam 32 engine with auto trans was what i was going to drop under the hood first which was going to be a hell lot of fun behind the wheels and a hell of a project with a hell of a lot of money.... but i decided an Sr20det just had to be.
Its going to be a while before i start to finish the BIG project but i thought it was worth sharing for you all to see what i get upto in New Zealand!
Before paint job, They say rusts lighter than carbon fibre! its is when you can sink 1-2 fingers in the rust patches i had on the datsun

^^This last picture i had my clutch pedal fixed, the whole thing snapped and was almost touching my brake pedal but still managed to hold on as i drove it everyday! then shortly after i decided to look under the hood and found oil in my radiator...
^^ old photo since then ive taken the engine apart, patch welded the head in 5 different places due to corrosion, changed the head gasket, flushed my oil and radiator, replaced the air filter, pcv valve, manifold gasket the list goes on.. plus a really really decent clean of the engine bay haha
This is all ive got for ya! but ill definitely post up flicks of the rebuild, ill be stripping everything! when i have the money and it will definitely be a prized possession!
