bonvos datsun 610 "michelle"

Recommended Posts

Definitely an interesting read, Its sure coming along and is turning out great! I was shocked that the rear axles use a "U-Joint" set up Vs. a CVJ and DOJ.

 

Keep up the good work!

Lots of Old Datsuns are Runnin' Strong here... Few are Looking Good, but I've not seen any 610 coupe in "Person".

Yours is Looking Good! ... Could I Ask more info about the Above posted Picture?

Kind Regards.

the plans for the datto are now to let it be my hot rod as it was intended now that i have the subaru for a daily driver this winter she is getting a tear down and getting a new cam and dual side draft carbs the ultimate plan latter on down the road is to get the body work done and paint it with a vg30er ( supercharged single cam vg30 found in newer fronters and xterras) and some chassis reenforcement

 

the girl on the hood in the pic above is a friend of mine i was trying to get the car into the ratsun.net calender and figured hot chick on top of my car should land me a spot unfortuantly it didnt but i got some nice pics out of it

 

my personal favs

That actually looks really good for rattle can, ACE rattle can at that! It looks fairly even and well coated, some over spray, but you are always gonna have that with the narrow spray pattern of an Aerosol.

 

Looks good man, props!

Do not wax that fresh top coat, wait a week or so, so the paint sets up. Wax has corrosives in it which remove grim and oxidization, this is gonna harm fresh paint.

 

Anyway, that looks really good. I don't see any runs or fisheyes. The clear really helped it as well.

Damn, 110amp! You could run a ton of Rally lights on that beast ;) $500 is pretty fair for a complete exhaust. I am gonna try making my own custom exhaust for the GL at some point (Sure beats buying new stock pipes)
