Thanks, judging by that exploded view diagram... itís actually the upper corner of the quarter panel that is rusty, not the roof... replacing the roof skin should fix the drip rails... and Iím debating shaving the drip rails when I swap roof skins, I expect the high speed whistling of the drip rails should go bye bye as a biproduct of doing that... I do have a spare turret, but donít want to change a turret if I donít need to...

Anyone got an exploded view pic of how the shell goes together? Kinda curious as I don't really want to replace the whole roof if it's worse than I thought...

175/65 R14's are what it has on the back now , probably can't go bigger , they look awesome, sadly the 200B SX alloys don't clear Aussie spec 120Y struts without spacers... Probably that PB210 dba for them looking awesome

The B210/PB210 engine bay is deceptively big the only things stopping them from being more crazy swap friendly is the steering box and possibly the brake booster pushing the master cylinder forward, I boosted brakes or a vh44 under a guard might help, along with a rack and pinion swap... That being said I like my Datsuns NOT V8 powered, I think I'd go VG30ET at most... There is a pic of a 120Y with a 308 cube Holden V8 on the forums...

yeah but the US spec B-210 has the horrid lead weight bumpers on them... early one's are tolerable, but I'd HAVE to aussify a late madel US spec B-210 if I ever had one...

yeah BW68 crush tube is NLA too

was mainly curious about bearings and stuff as if I'm gonna redo the BW68 I want it done PROPERLY...

would like new bearings rather than something 35+ years old...

guess I need to find the spare BW68 and have a look at it's internals

BW68 was put in as I wanted to run a L18 and 4 speed (vetoed as dad said it'd be too powerful)

and yeah diff is out of an aussie assembled 120Y (March '77)

biggest wirry I have now is is I took the car the diff came from through a salt flat and all the bolts on the back case are all nicely rusted up...

thankfully I have 2 spare BW68's (forgot I have a late model 120Y sedan that is pretty much identical to the project car (August '77)

out of curousity, what has more parts availability to it, H150 or BW68

The Defect 3 (July '74 120Y) has has a BW 68 transplanted under it... but I have heard a metallic "tink tink tink" when I was driving it hard, have a spare BW 68, but I do have a H150 (under a July '75 120Y) I could redo if I needed to...

yes that's the rims... and the car the front end it's coming off

TD3 these days looks a lot better than that pic but the back tyres are a bit bigger than in that pic will upload an up to date pic soon

no not wheel spacers, as far as I know they are illegal here...

and yes those are 200B SX alloys on that 1200...

somewhere there is a pic of TD3 and it's 200B SX alloys..can only fit the rears on, fronts hit the struts and now I'm thinking if I strip the point off mine like on that 1200 they will look like delorean wheels...

the rims going on the front of my 120Y are off the sunny the struts are coming off...

donor car is a Febuary 1981 (square light) B310.. and I was told late model sunnies had beefier brakes - sadly I won't be using the H150 as getting it out from under the car is too hard...

really all I want out of the B310 strut swap is the ability to use my 200B SX Alloys on the front and get rid of "the o-rings of death"

ie 12" rims off the front of my car...
