Project Tosbo: almost there

Even though the progress was slower during summer and holiday season, I’m super happy to report that I’ve driven the first 5km to test everything.

So here are a few pics of the last months in chronological order:


Custom heatshield for the Fujitsubo header. New gaskets everywhere,…
Didn’t go with the usual blue engine paint, as it doesn’t go very well with the safari gold
Lonely driver spark plug wire separators and Datsun Spirit MSD spark plug wires
Long block ready to be put back in
Long block ready to be put back in
Engine in
Added the Garage Theory strut bar
In good company. My 70 240Z, my 73 240Z and my ex KE25
Engine and gearbox all mounted
Rear diff, suspension and fuel tank mounted
Just missing the airbox now
Interior completed. Datsun competition steering wheel, Tomei shift knob for the KA14 gearbox, Speedhut tach, Cobra RSR seats
The underbelly in all it’s glory! I could look at this all day long
