Life has moved on for me and I can’t hold onto this any longer, time to pass this onto someone else to enjoy.
Below is the basic spec sheet. You will notice I haven’t given wheel size for the current set up. This is because I do not wish to sell with them. I have also recently jumped into an Keihin FCR41 carb setup for this car. As it is not 100% with getting the right amount of fuel to them, they will not come with it and I shall sell it with the factory EFI setup as a running, moving, sliding car.

I live on the North Shore of Auckland and you are welcome to come view if you are legitimately going to buy it.

Price: $8,000. I’m pretty firm on the price so don’t expect much movement.
I am not looking to swap it for anything either

Comment if you want to buy it, please no window shoppers

Let me start this by saying that lendich construction COVERED this thing in rust proofing. That is not to say it doesn’t have rust but that the rust proofing is there. There is some rust though which I recommend having removed if longevity is the aim. There is a spot in the passenger side roof gutter, a spot in the rear quarter panel in the seam and some in the front scuttle panel. There is also surface rust in the tray. Overall it’s not the end of the world but it was never meant to be a show piece. It is crazy fun to drive and driving it is the main purpose.

Sorry I thought I had a photo of the engine bay complete, it looks mostly similar to the following:

Thanks Chris for the photos! This was such a fun day, I can’t wait for the next one. Between motorbikes I’ve been getting along with fixing the radiator. I have everything I need, I just need to modify the water outlet to fit the thermo switch and wire that in and we’re good to go.

See Freshly whipped for more of the day. Come on Chris, get some more video up!

I first have to apologise that the old server that I used to host my photographs off (my mothers) has stuffed up and now denies everyone access to view most of beeoneoneoh. I’m sure you would have noticed if you have tried to view the cream or any of my old posts. It sucks but the effort it requires to reupload and change the links to all 1300 odd posts that are broken is phenomenal. EDIT: Whilst most posts are still not working, I’ve re-hosted and edited some of the cream posts which have scans I’ve done.

Since the beginning of beeoneoneoh I’ve been fizzing on this car, in fact it was one of the first cars I ever posted about. I took some scans a long time ago now (where does it all go?) and I’ve rehosted them for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy my favourite Datsun 1200 Coupe below, follow this link to the original post then click the link in that post too (now fixed). It’s a desktop background size too!

I’m all loaded up and ready for the first drift day with the SR20 tomorrow. Here’s hoping nothing big goes wrong! Between driving I’ll definitely be shooting so I’ll post some photos up next week.

Kyusha Matsuri Scans 2

Too much cool to comment on

I’m so stoked. I was at Keisuke’s place the other night with Nick before we uhh tested his AE86 a bit. I was rummaging through his pile of Japanese magazines and found an old issue of Autoworks, a ‘Retro Car Special Edition’ and what did I find inside? More photos from my favourite car meet! There are always those cars, you know the ones, that are so awesome yet you can only find scraps of information and images of them. This meet is one of my favourites because so many good cars were in one place, most of which are hard to find pictures of. I posted about it herehere and here. The guys up front holding and raising hands? Total sunny bros.

There are too many good cars to post at once so I’ll spread a few of the captures over a couple of posts. This Sanitora gets first mention for being high in my favourites and if you look at the top photo you will see the Hayashi Street B210 Sedan too!

SR Wiring Part One

July 23, 2011

Mandatory photos of the excess crap taken out the loom and the remainder which goes into the car.

I had a pretty productive night last night: machined flywheel went back on, the new Exedy clutch in, gearbox on, made some looped metal heater lines and painted them, new oil filter, alternator back on and swapped the exhaust manifold for one with all it’s studs.

Today was massive, my friend Nic Tauroa drove up to get deep into the wiring and what was meant to be a wet day was actually pretty sunny all day until the inevitable and it poored down when it got dark. I got the engine bay ends of the fuel line bent which just require one last trim and the filter mounted and they are done. The SR20 went in the hole again, the wiper motor cleaned and back on and the dash back in the cabin! It kinda resembles a car now, I even put the drivers seat back in for some enthusiasm. Man it’s really noticeable just how big the tunnel is with the dash and seat in.

Nic hammered through a good portion of the wiring and tore out a bunch of useless junk from the SR loom. We swapped a small dry cell battery into Nick S’s MX5 a while back which works great (Joel runs the same type into his 1J). I picked up the same battery which will be mounted behind the passenger seat area and out of the crowded engine bay. I made up a mounting panel for the ECU, relays and the new fuse board and have mounted it high on the passenger kick panel to keep it reachable but out of the way.

I was hoping we would get to start the SR today but it wasn’t meant to be, next Saturday is set for part two. There are still plenty of minor things to keep me occupied before it’s drivable including remounting the handbrake, plumbing the clutch line, riveting in the radiator support panel and shrouding the radiator but it’s getting there. I cannot wait to finally hear this thing bark.

Hayabusa Datsun 1200

July 18, 2011

Two words that would usually never be uttered in the same sentence: Hayabusa Datsun. I can appreciate this. It has stayed true to what makes Datsun 1200s so awesome, light weight and small capacity but is clearly on another level of cool. Something tells me that the clutch and maybe the gearbox wouldn’t however, be cool with 200 clutch kicks though. Note the angled drive shaft fitted to the factory ‘busa gearbox. Watch and oogle.

Nigel’s post about the history of his 180SX prompted me to have a look back on the history of my own car. Whilst the past of this little Datsun is no where near as cool or eventful there are some highlights in there. This image in particular makes me laugh at my own idiocy. Parked up on the boat ramp in the middle of a rain and thunder storm taking photos with an umbrella over my head isn’t usually the best idea. Thankfully I got lucky with a handful of strikes right overhead, this was the best. The black centers on the MKIIs really gets to me now, I don’t know how I left it like that for so long! Here’s to fun daily drivers and innocent idiocy. P.S: this is not shopped, you cannot see the pixels.
