I wasn't too pedantic about it as it's going under the car, after all.


So? What will you do when you're working under your car and want to see what you look like?

Good job on getting it all sorted out. You said your diff was a 3.55:1. What RPM does the car sit on when you're cruising?

Tyrie: damn man that would have been great! ah well im sure someone else will gladly take it off your hands

Alex: the cv's are great, smooth as, even at this height. thats why i got them

Alistair: it sits at around 2100 at 80kph. cant remember what its at at 100 though, but its pretty low. i like it like this, plenty of get up and go with the fj, yet it keeps the revs down at cruising speed, perfect IMO

cheers mate :)

so last month I did 4 guest blogs for Speedhunters.com since March was "builds & previews month" and my blog is all about 'builds' after all. For the last entry I did a write-up on my own car. If anyone is keen to read about it you can find it here http://speedhunters.com/archive/2010/03/30/guest-blog-anthony-crivelli-build-threads-com-gt-fj20et-datsun-1600-a.aspx.

The other 3 entries I did are below:

I like. Is that collage a collection of all the Datsun photo's you've collected over the years in magazines or something?

Looks great Anth :thumbsup:

I used to do exactly the same when I was younger, cutting out pics of cars and making poster, I even used to draw them and make my own tweaks here and there, I remember my first encounter with a car mag and that was an old Fast Fours & Rotaries way back in 95, loved reading the articles and I have bought them ever since!!!

I know what you mean it becoming an obsession, but i think that is with every Datsun or retro car owner, like where does it stop???

Loving how you have laid it all out and hope to do the same once that day comes when the B is all finished. Keep up the good work and hope to be cruising along with you in the future....

Alex

Thanks Aaron :) I guess since starting the blog my interests in writing have really increased, I enjoy doing it and it seems to be going well. Maybe one day it'll take me somewhere!

It's a small portion of what I've got at home, there's plenty more!

One thing that I've always wanted in the car was a Nardi Classic steering wheel, yet I was torn between woodgrain and leather. I love the way woodgrain looks, but I was never sure of how it felt. When a leather 350mm classic came up for sale at a low price, I snapped it up regardless of the material. Understandably, it didn't come with a horn button or a trim ring, so my hunt wasn't quite over just yet.

Image
The wheel that came with the car was an Autotecnica item based on a Momo design which was very popular in the late 90's.

Image
Here is the Nardi as it was delivered, no rips, tears, dents or scratches, just some worn leather and in need of a bit of a clean.

Image
A very handy similarity between Nardi & Autotecnica is that their boss-kits use the same bolt pattern, so a new boss wasn't needed.

Image
For the sake of getting the wheel on the car, I used my old horn button and slapped a Mooneyes sticker over the logo. I was happy to be steering with the perfectly round design of the Nardi, but the look wasn't quite right yet.

Image
After a bit of searching, I found a horn button & trim ring thanks to Dan from OzDat.

Image
Unfortunately, the metal spacer that sits between the wheel and the boss was too small to house the Nardi horn button. I guess the similarities between the brands ended with the boss kits.

Image
After a quick call to Dan to discuss my problem, we discovered that he actually needed the smaller spacer that was on my wheel, and he also had the larger one that I required. He generously drove to my work where we swapped the items over, and with that done we both had what we needed.

Image
With the new spacer installed, the Nardi horn button could be inserted. Still looked a bit bare though.

Image
Much better.

Hey Anth.
Do you know where I can one of those horn button covers (including the pressed bit of metal that you initially were missing?)
I need to get one for my black Nardi Classic wheel. (I made my own at the moment)

Welcome to the Nardi club Anth :wink:

Nick: you can have a look though either ae86drivingclub.com.au or have a look on Yahoo auctions through Importmoster.com.au

Just have to sign up for Import Monster to browse but they offten appear and can be sent direct from JP to your mailbox since it's such a small item.

Mine came with that ring so was no big deal but IMO looks better with it on than off.
