No black cali plates?


Pretty much if i cant find a nice clean plate by june, I'll just bend over for a restored one. Going to call guy in the morning and have him keep an eye out for a few special number combos.

So are those the plates you're gonna go with? I keep looking at the pics and I'm wondering how cool that is already.....and then I think about what if you're still driving it in 30 years from now what you'd be wearing when you drive it in parades in front of Jesse's Nova ?! We know what Jesse wears most of the time. Start designing a Fairlady black & red beret or you think a cap? This thread makes me think of my 4 door 510 a drove many years ago. It was a great little car.

Wait.....I guess probly Jesse won't have the Nova then huh?:D

Finally got garage squared away enough to make the datsun center stage.
Did order some parts. My new phat whitewalls tried to get sent to my old house, so maybe by the end of the week. Got an NOS choke cable assembly and stocker positive ground radio from another owner on a different board. Hopefully ordering my interior and rubber parts tomorrow.
And after the weather warmed up i was finally able to fit the canvas tonneau. Unfortunately not before i tore the rain flap a bit.

Pics.

I hate it when I tear my rain flap. The million dollar question is, does it run yet? I think we should have the world's slowest drag race between the datsun and the nova!

Parts are starting to show up.
Interior kit, of course, special order its weeks out.

But got new fuel pump. Some rubber bits. The tires. I broke the old tires off. They were from 87. I really wanted to sell them on Craigslist since they still had nipples. Lol
Sand/glass beaded the wheels. Lame.....spent a majority of my time fighting polluted sand until it was empty enough to clean out.

The glass beads are wAy finer and seemed to work better. However, right when things stsrted to go smoothly, i had an issue with a fitting dying....

Where'd you get the white walls from? Are they bias or radial? I'll be stoked to see it on the road. Better hurry, convertible weather is ending soon!

Tires are Coker Firestones 5.60x13 bias. Got through summit racing with free shipping.
I am scrambling this week for a show next weekend in shasta.
Think we're just going to trailer down this time.
