    That will be good to bring the trim up to snuff to go with the new paint job!

        That reminds me of a bare assed 510 I once owned. Pre internet days when you couldn't find a bumper even if you tried. Didn't want to drive a freshly painted car with the rusty mess that was the bumper so I left it bare. Naturally after the car was gone I stumbled on a whole front clip, fenders hood cowl panel bumper, and a trunklid and rear bumper. Again pre-internet days. All those parts were taken off a '72 510 back in 1975 when it went racing. The bumpers are on the wagon, hood and fenders are in the basement, don't remember where the trunklid went to but I have a pretty good idea where it might be now.

        Jeeze I've been at this Datsun thing a long time.

        Car looks good. Silver is a little overdone on the newer cars but it sure looks good on the old Datsuns.

        It's amazing how one tiny capacitor can wreak so much havoc.

          Don't worry Casey. Cambridge Chrome did my bumper as well. Beautiful job.

            While i was at it pulled the front bumper and while I was at it I ordered the rubber strips for it(I see a pattern here)

            While I was at it I pulled the grill cleaned it up and painted it.

            While I was at it I pulled the rad and am Cleaning it up.

            Will post some pics when i stop pulling things off my car.

                        At least they are consistent, mine was exactly the same price.

                          Good to see the prices haven't jumped at all. I had to pay $500.00 plus for the bumpers on my 1960 Studebaker Lark 4 years ago. Your Z is looking fantastic Casey, hope to get a close look at it in the summer, Neil.

                            Put the front end back together.

                            Got the rad shroud at the spring swap meet.

                            Along with a later model larger fan from Laverne it solved all my heating up issues.

                            You need three arms to put the front bumper on by yourself.007.JPG003.JPG

                              Put some serious time in on the car today. Here is a list plus some questions:

                              -Replaced shifter bushings. Nice and snug now.
                              -May have resolved rear defog issue (indicator light only came on intermittently when switch activated). After much testing I opened up the relay and cleaned/adjusted the contacts. This seems to have worked but we will see how long it holds up.
                              -Tried to resolve intermittent wiper issue (if I plug in lower connector on relay wipers will run continuously in the off position). Replaced relay but no change (I replaced combination switch a couple of years ago). I think the issue is in the motor itself. I have another motor but will wait until I am sure before going through the hassle of replacing. Any thoughts?
                              -Tried to resolve fuel gauge issue (only reads ¾ when full). Replaced gauge but no change (I had the sender unit replaced last year). I guess the issue is still with the sender given the gauges read the same. I’m thinking it was not zeroed properly. Any thoughts.

                              Thanks
