So winter is finally over here in western Europe. Time to get the old cars out and back on the street. Anf finally some new Datsun pics to post
And while I was replacing the valve cover gasket, I gave it a coat of paint
So, it’s back on its wheels, on the ground, washed,…
I managed to do 99.5% of the work I wanted to do over the winter and I’m really satisfied with the result of everything. Now all I need is better weather. Let the winter end!
Oh and the work I did the last week to my floorboards. Quite the same procedure as the front wheel wells I did a few weeks ago. Spent 8 hours to get the underside of the floorboards, rails,… back to bare metal. Treated the metal and put on primer and special paint (Brantho Korrux). Hopefully they will last for another 20years now.
Spa was a blast! It just really is the mist beautiful track in Europe! Got 2 dry sessions in the morning and 2 wet sessions in the afternoon. Here are my favourite shots of that day. More pix will follow.
Huge thx to my mate Vincent for taking the pix. Go to facebook and like his page! Napster Photography
As for the GT86, it’s sold. Got a new daily already, something more practical, a station waon, it isn’t jap though! So I don’t know if I’ll show it here.
As for the KE25, F I N A L L Y the new shoes are on. Took me 11 months from when I put my first order on yahoo japan untill I got them together and mounted. I’m so so happy with the outcome!
They are WEDS Racing Tri 6.5x14ET-5 and 7x14ET-1 wrapped in quite skinny 165/60/14 tires. For a non fender flared KE, I think it looks tits! Needs a tad more low in the front though. Will have my mate Pentti fab me some short strokes 😉
