About an hour or so after I saw that old Senior Chief’s 280z, I saw this #s110 #datsun #200sx! I’m still dreamy and creamy after that beat down coupe I saw (and didn’t photograph) a week or so back. That’s two of these I have seen roaming around #porthueneme. In Japan the coupe was the Silvia, (mexico was the Sakura) while this hatchback was badged the #gazelle. #datsungazelle #oldschoolusdmhunter

Sometimes, you get a friendly nut tap from time to time in a car build. I got that one today with my #bestdamn18rgra43celicaintown build. I go to test fit my distributor and realize the rotor spins freely. This is looking down the distributor hole. The drive gear can be seen at the 12 o’clock in the photo, and the upper timing chain off the auxiliary drive gear can be seen. My problem? #Baka me puts the distributor drive gear in backwards! I have to now pull the head back off to be able to pull the timing chain cover. #dammit! #fml #18rg #toyota

Details seperate great cars from the good ones. I have seen plenty of early #toyota #celica mirrors simply moved from the door to the side of the fender and held in with sheet metal screws. Hit those mirrors with anything, and they are broken. As seen here, the correct #RA40 fender mirrors are spring loaded. Okay, I’ll stop gushing over these, I just have to find something else to occupy my time until I find somewhere to yank the old motor out, and get my Wats mounted. #bestdamn18rgra43celicaintown #fendermirrors #nofilter #jdm #kyusha

This is what replacing the rusty mounting stud assembly on original Toyota fender mirrors entails…
