In the last installment of our Datsun 510 build, we upgraded a number of parts including our brake system and suspension with the help of Ground control and FutoFab. After months of planning and installing parts, we have finally arrived at beautifying our beast along with rebuilding our wiring harness – no small task in a 40-plus-year-old car.
In the newest installment of our Old School Labs build, we revitalize the underside of our back-from-the-dead Datsun 510 and completely revamp the suspension and braking systems for improved performance. Check out the details inside!
Bringing a 45-plus-year-old Datsun 510 back from the dead is no easy task. In this first installment of our Old School Labs build series, follow along as we cut out the crusty old steel and replace it with solid sheetmetal to prepare the car for years of fun.
