I couldn’t help myself, a pair of cheap Ewing III’s came up on Yahoo.jp, so I went straight back to Dan to place a bid and ship these puppies over here. They’re nothing drastic, 15×7 +17, to replace the 6.5’s I currently run on the front, so I’ll have 7’s on the front & rear now. I guess it’ll give me something to do over the summer. What do you guys think of the white accents, compared to the way I have mine in black?

I wondered why I was having trouble getting the sump plug off…
In other news, my apologies for the lack of posts this past week or so but I’m off to Japan on Saturday for 2.5 weeks! Been a bit busy organising things but I’m going to get some posts ready for you guys to schedule for while I’m away, and hopefully I’ll be able to fit in a post or two from abroad.
Also I should be ready to run ads on the sidebar by the time I’m back, so if you think any businesses out there would benefit from some really good exposure, be sure to let them know.
Built to be driven
I have a stack of builds waiting to be featured, so there’s plenty of content coming up for you guys, I really do appreciate your patience. Until then, enjoy a picture of Project 510 in all it’s filthy goodness after driving a full day on wet & twisty roads.
Thanks to Carey for taking this awesome shot, from Friday nights JDMST meet in Melbourne, peep the city in the background. (Click for larger size)
Project 510 – Nardi Torino
One thing that I’ve always wanted in the car was a Nardi Classic steering wheel, yet I was torn between woodgrain and leather. I love the way woodgrain looks, but I was never sure of how it felt. When a leather 350mm classic came up for sale at a low price, I snapped it up regardless of the material. Understandably, it didn’t come with a horn button or a trim ring, so my hunt wasn’t quite over just yet.
Project 510 – Speedhunters.com
Here is the fourth Speedhunters article to be posted, this one is about my own project car. Many of you who have been following this blog since the start would be familiar with this particular automobile, but this article really takes it back to how it all started for me, plus there are some images that I’ve never posted before. Hope you all like it.
I get hits from all kinds of random forums, and every now and BMX in Scotland pops up in my stats section so I thought I’d throw this pic up in response.
This is my two-wheeled project, so expect a full write-up when it’s completed. I’m also working on my fourth and final Speedhunters feature, so sit tight for that one. I also have a stack of awesome submissions from readers to get through, so thank you to all who submit builds and I apologise if I can’t reply to all the emails, I’ll get through them eventually.
Project 510 – Diff rebuild
In my last update on the Datsun, I mentioned my diff was playing up just after I installed my CV driveshaft conversion. One of the first things I did was drain the diff oil and inspect the drain plug. This is what I found…
