Hello

i'm barry, living in the netherlands and the last 2 years restoring my F10.

bought it looking like this

Open in new window



after driving a couple of months and doing some little things to the car
i've rented a big space to take the car apart, the old owner has done some damage to the car i would like to repair

Open in new window


after completely taking the car apart

it looked like this

after a lot of work, I've sprayed it in primer

after a lot of sanding, it was time to spray color on the car, was the first time for me.
but when i was done, it looked very nice. the color is from the '80s Renault alpine A32

after a little black spray of some items, it was time for clear lacquer

16" borbet a wheels polished and sprayed white with 195-40/16 tires mounted on the car

i've got some original 12" and 13" alloy rims to, for the oldtimer events

the car is still missing the engine, because i had it tuned, but the dumbass tuner has taken 12 months to do it
got it begin november back from him in bits and pieces, now i have got the engine build up, new cilinderhead bolts are on the way from japan, then i can hook everything back up and start the engine, i hope

specs off the tuned engine are

cosworth pistons and rods
specially made camshaft 278 degrees inlet and 272 degrees outlet
machined head to make room for the pistons end get better flow ports
bigger valves
weber 32/36 carb
protronix ignition
and more

Open in new window


here some pics of the engine now

hi barry, your project is looking really good, especially the engine! what kind of compression ratio are you running with the pop up pistons?

i think about 12:1 ratio

if i remember good what the tunes said to me.


also with this ratio it was still possible to go for a turbo set-up, but thats a thing for next winter

also today, when i picked up the rims, looked for a '72 datsun 1200 in blue, needs some welding and a respray
but for 400 euro's , I'll probably do it. got an SR20DET lying around from an S14. so that would be a great next project.
