EF Ian Posted July 17, 2013 Share Posted July 17, 2013 (edited) I'm still planning on sticking an RB26 in this so thought a build thread would be a good idea. The first few posts are just copied: Just bought my first Datsun and I'm really happy with it so thought I'd post some photos. I've still got loads to learn about these cars so I'm sure this forum will be a huge help.1979 Datsun 260ZShes in great condition, only 28480 miles on her when I bought it although its not far of 29k now. She was built in 1978 but only first registered in 1979 and going by the chassis number she was one of the the last to be imported from Japan to the UK. Theres few photos with my Civic in them also, shes a 1991 Civic running a 243hp B20.It drives beautifully, its had new bushes all round and with the low miles on the chassis it still feels really tight so its a joy to drive.I have real big plans for her involving seam welding, cageing, hugely uprated suspension and brakes and an engine swap, I like the idea of a V10 because I love them but failing that I'd like an RB26DETT.For now though the first mods will be:Paint the brake calipers and drumsPolish up the lips on the wheelsGive the engine bay a good cleanClean out the carbsDo something with the rocker coverGive her a full detail, I've already done the inside but the outside still needs doneAfter that lot I'll be fitting a bigger better airdam and a rear spoiler follwed by a good coilover setup with adjustable camber plates welded in as shes definitly too high at the moment. Then I'll have to fit the arch flares before I can fit my new wheels other wise they won't fit.PhotosSorry for the amount but I couldn't decide which to put up.
