.
Finally the Bandwith is no longer exceeded ...... .. .. . hopefully it stays that way...... . Confused
 
 
The radiator is a CX racing aluminum radiator off ebay for KA24 510s ... . . . I think it's 26x13x1.5 ... . I wish it was 3" thick, and 15.5" tall
 
 
some pics in the sunlight: ....... .. it looks kinda red, kinda fluroescent orange,,, , but never looks like a stock Datsun color
 
it's GM Hugger Orange: ....... andthe body will always stay the stock color:

.
This is the third engine bay I've painted , , , , I learned the spots that need extra clear coat.. .. . but I still have a few thin spots
 
 
... .. . Here is what the engine bay looked like when I got the wagon last year:

.
I shaved all the casting marks off the stock intake manifold with a 4" grinder / cut-off wheel..... then used a dremel tool and a electric block sander.....
 
started with 40 grit ........ then slowly worked up to 220 ........ followed by 00 steel wool and mother's aluminum polish, and 320grit into the wet polish
 
finished with 0000 steel wool, mother's, 400 grit, more 0000 and more polishing for hours......

That manifold is awesome!  And you did most of the polishing by hand?  Good work!

.
The intake manifold took over 35 hours streched out over a six month period... .. . .
 
 
Started with a cut-off wheel to remove most of the casting marks and un-neccesary bolt holes
 
..... then followed with a medium grit grinding pad, then 40 grit sanding......... all the way to 220
 
Mother's aluminum polish and 00 steel wool,,, , then 320 wet sanding into the wet polish .... .. . same thing with 400 grit
 
..... then 0000 steel wool and mothers polish and a soft cloth ...... .. still might to try a polishing wheel or something

.
I "borrowed" the brake master cylinder off the 510 . .. everything bolted in perfect, 510 backing plate, master, and stock 510 push-rod (looks like it will fit perfect in the stock 710 pedal-box)


 

 

 

 

 

... ... trying to "hide" the brake lines ...... .. still mocking it up,,, , but I plan on running a brake line through the front crossmember (unless that's a horrible idea???)

There is a piece of steel square tubing in the crossmember.. .. . connecting these 2 plates:

that tar sh*t is a pain t get off. Looks like you have it taken care of. Harness looks good. I always make the mistake of just making the wires somewhat close in length and end up having to always redo the harness. Did you use a jig, or just do it all at one time?

Nice work Indy, by the looks of your pics, your car doesn't have a spot of rust on her.

That can be classified as art itself.  Way to go!  I enjoy those long exposure photos, what kinda camera do you have?

Do you have an extra set of those wheels for sale? LOL

I wouldn't be concerned about running the brake line through the crossmember unless it will flex when you corner or hit rough road or something. Then, I could see running flex line near the ends of the crossmember and just mounting a hardline through the length of the crossmember.
