Pulled the seats out of the car so I can sell the wrx mounts that barely worked.

Ground down and primed the driver side of the car tonight.


Bent this up as a template out of some aluminum tube, won't get to bending up the real stainless line until tuesday as I am out of town this weekend.

Finished up grinding the BMW E30 Ellipsoid headlights to fit my headlight buckets. Had to cut quite a bit out of the brackets to make them fit. Luckily because I shortened them when I retrofitted Morimoto Mini D2S Hid headlights into them so I didn't have to take a hammer to the fender wells.

First 2 photos show the cuts I had to make. I will have to re-fiberglass the headlights one last time and do a wax layer so I can sand and paint them to be all pretty. Will get more photos then of the final product.




Got them mounted in the car and hacked together a harness so I can see how they look. Just running off a PC power supply for now as I was lazy.










So these do both low and high beam so I am really unsure what to do. Currently I have the one high beam in. The other one I am waiting on hardware as the stuff that came with the car was junk for it. Could leave it open and put some mesh across it as the air filter will be right behind it.

Or put yellow high beams in

So after about 1-2 nights of figuring out the wiring, making diagrams, lists and lots of other boring stuff so I can make my dash and engine bay harness the work has begun.

I am using 2 Bussman Relay/fuse panels. 1 for car related items (wipers/horn/headlights etc etc) 2nd for Engine running related items like (Megasquirt, Injector power, IGN power, Fuel Pump 1, Fuel Pump 2, etc), Techflex/shrink wrap for the harness protection, and mostly OEM connectors if I can source them. With some deutsch connectors as needed.

I also managed to find a place that sells striped wire in small quantities so I can have some chance of troubleshooting this in the future using a normal Datsun 510 wiring diagram. My only big changes are adding redoing the headlights so that the Headlight switch doesn't have 20 amps running through it, and the IGN switch so it doesn't have almost 80 amps running through it. With that my gauges of wire could be a lot smaller as the IGN switch will simply flip the relays on vs the stock setup.

I just got done running about 90 percent of the wires in the dash at least to rough length, bundled by connectors, next up is splicing in the turn signals in multiple places, illumination wires, grounds, and making a small sub harness for the speedhut gauges. Hoping to get it done this weekend before the wife gets pissed at setting up shop in the family room.

Most of the switches, Radio, Gauges, etc are here.

All the wires terminating where the 2 fuse panels will be.

Hoping for more exciting updates of the car running again once this is done and the dash can be put into the car.

The striping helps a lot, on top of that I have temporary labels on them until they get bundled and then they get shrink wrapped labels so I know what each connector goes to. I splurged a while ago on a brothers labeler that can print on heat shrink labels. It made my life a lot easier for making harnesses for our lemons/chump cars as I wasn't the only person who knew where everything went.

I need that labeler in my life. Would make so many jobs easier.

Interior harness is 90 percent done, car started right up so I could get her in the garage to start welding in seat mounts.

Not much progress but getting through the shitty work. Ground up all the surface rust and garbage old seam sealer behind the seats and prepped it for eastwood rust encapsulator. Still need to finish redoing the front where rust poked through the primer and patch 2-3 holes in the passenger side floor board. Painting the whole interior grey once all the patches are done and everything is cleaned up.

Seat mounts have to wait until next weekend.

I barely find any these days in the midwest easier to find clean 240z and Roadsters. Everything is in california which is a pain in the dick when you are half tempted to put a back seat back in the car but nobody will ship them if they even have a decent set.

Like this is close to what I paid and mine was a running car.
