In the engine bay, you could triangulate that main brace going across to the firewall. Maybe some subframing? I would def do a 6-point with a harness bar.

I don't think this car will "need" a 6 point cage. If you wanted it for added saftey just do a 4 point behind the front seats. I personally wouldn't worry about a cage at all.

Nice progress! Love this project.

To bad it's not rear wheel drive. That thing would move with a hyabussa engine in it. lol

Like I said before a rally replica but with rear seats so you can take it around town and so forth. Heck you could even enter the vintage races in your area. I am sure they have some. If not you could start them at a road race track. I am sure some older datsuns would like to get on the track some time. I get a kick out of racing the subaru 360 on Gran Turismo. lol

I'm not in this to make money. And if you read the thread, you would see its not a "rust free" car at all...

All right, I think the big thing to do now is pick the tires so I can figure out what offset I need for the wheels... So the big question is: Go with 14" or 15"?

For 14" tires, I will definatly go with the Khumo V700's that are on closeout at Tire Rack (Khumo Ecsta V700 185/55/14, Section width - 7.6", Tread width - N/A, Diameter 21.9", Weight 18lbs). The smaller rotational diameter will make fitament easy, as will the narrower section width. I don't know the tread width though because Khumo doesn't list their tire tread width (although it is a less accurate form of measurement).

For 15" though, I've got it narrowed down to 2 choices...

1) The Khumo SPT 15" (Khumo Ecsta SPT 195/45/15, Section width - 7.7", Tread width N/A, Diameter - 21.9", Weight 17lbs, Cost - $90.00) It has the lowest weight i've found, plus isnt too expensive, AND has the same diameter as the 14" V700's which will make for a nice lower profile on a 15" wheel.

2) The Advan A043 15" (Yokohama Advan A043 185/55/15, Section width - 7.5", Tread width - 6.6", Diameter - 23", Weight 21lbs, Cost - $109.00) This is actually a specialty tire for the MR-S. Its good because its narrow for a 15" tire but not too narrow, probably has a better chance of clearing everything than the Khumo... However, its taller than the Khumo (almost the same diameter as my current tires) so there might be more clearance issues there. Its also the most expensive option.


I'm still not sure which one I want the most right now, but I think i'm leaning towards the V700 due to the price... Thoughts?

Here's is a hybrid exhaust setup that I worked up. All I had access to was MSPaint, so it's crappy, but gets the point across. Oh yeah. I love this project! Of course, this piping could also run all the way to the back for a more conventional setup. I thought the side exit would be interesting, as long as it's just a subtle exhaust pipe, and not gaudy quad tips or a large 3" tip or something.

well, looking at your tires, you need to roll those fenders looking at all the other pictures, i see the other cars all have flairs. better et to work

on th exhaust, down either side is best, as it looks like it you ran it down th center you would lose some ground clearance.

and good luck on the project, working on old cars is fun

I do want to flare the fenders a little, but its a little different than normal since these fenders already have a bend in them already, and the side of the car is completely flat otherwise...

The exhaust piping can pretty much go anywhere, is the same clearance regardless

So how do you deal with all the rust, just get some sheet metal and weld it in? as far as fenders go how do you get those when you need them?

Thats cool, but I'd make it easily swappable for a modern seat so you have some more support when you track.

13 or 14" Panasports would look good or old school BBS. The black trim doesn't flow with the white paint.

Those are classic "look" seats with modern support. Look at the detail photos, they have very good bolstering and leg support compaired to lots of other newer seats.

None of which can be found in a useable offset or bolt pattern for this car...
