Hi Guys & Gals
It started out as a regular cab long box Z24 5 speed , it was way too slow so I installed a 1986 300ZX engine and trans , drove it for several years, and then on day I was stopped behind a Nissan Xterra that had a Supercharged sticker on it !!!!!!!!!!!! how cool is that !!! so I found an Xterra supercharger on E-bay and  I installed the Supercharger, Super fast !!!
I built an adapter and the pullies are off wrecks, the one on the crank is a certain size to obtain the right amount of boost, its off a German car ..........................sorry guys .......................I try to keep it all Nissan.
The fuel and air is managed by HKS Pfc F-con and a Turbo ECU.
Next the Cab was too small so I cut the back off and added 16 inches.
The rear is handled by a narrowed Z32 Diff, custom built control arms, front brakes are Z31 hubs machined to fit 720 wheel bearings and Z32 rotors.

Wow! You are quite the craftsman. Is it now 5-lug wheels? I can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi Mocman
Yes it is now 5 lug  ( 5x114.3) same as 300ZX its the most common 5 bolt pattern, the rear is Z32 hubs and disc brake, and the front is a combination of Z31 hubs machined to fit the larger 720 bearings and Z32 rotors and Calipers.
It's a big project and it will be back on the road this spring, can't wait I miss driving it big time.
Thanks for your interest

Hi Rusty
I was so happy to find the DMT site , and I only found it by fluke, it was a link in some post on the ratsun site about an event, well I will try to keep you guys updated on the project, its still a long way from done but it needs to be back on the road this spring as I have too many toys, so my 72 510 wagon will be for sale this spring, if you know anyone interested ?
Thanks for your reply.

Hey Fast720, WELCOME!!  This is turning out great!  What brought on this project?
Are the controls arms CroMo?  I see lots of design details!  Veddy Nice!

Post up some pictures of your goon sometime!  I'm looking for a goon but since you're 4300km away I'll just stick to the pictures, LOL.

Hi Guys and Gals
I have been busy ............but not on my truck , yes a Mini but not a truck .
I am building a custom Carbonfiber dash for someone else, it's for a classic Austin Mini, building a Plug and then a mold from the Plug and then the actual parts........................whew its a s#^@t load of work, but its going to be very very cool !!!!!!
Here are some picks so far, should be making some parts this week coming and then back to my 720 rocket.
 
Mock up
 
The Plug
 
 
 
 
The Plugs sprayed with PVA ( A mold release ) before Gelcoating and then fiberglassing
 
The Mold from the Plug, this now gets waxed 6 times, sprayed with PVA and the layed up with fiberglass or carbonfiber and Vacuum bagged.
