There is alot i might be forgetting.

Hi Datsun folks i wanted to add more info to help complete more details on the build of this Datsun 510. Started out as a driver purchased some time ago. This car was completely gutted, most areas of heavier metal were sandblasted completely to bare metal. These areas are the complete engine bay and inner fender wells, radiator support, complete trunk pan and spare tire well. Once blasted all areas were repainted with high end paint products. Here are some pics of the build in process. This isn't a $10,000 paint job but in my option is a very nice paint job. All holes were migged, the taillight panel was cut and flanged, to hold the Bluebird taillights. rusted areas were removed. those areas cleaned and under coated. Downer car sections were welded in place and under coated front and back. Inside and out. Battery tray has been removed and smooth out. I have over a 100+ pics of the build. There are a couple areas i would of liked to see come out better, but i'm picky, and have painted a lot of high end 510s.
While the engine was installed the drivers fender got a nick.
Hinges were rebuilt before cleaning and repainting. The rear quarter windows were completely dismantled, blasted, primed, sealed, painted, and reassembled. Door and quarter window rubber is the only after market rubber on the car. All other rubber is NOS including window felt, front and back window rubbers, trunk, door window squeegees, and hood bumpers. The interior panels were reupholstered by other people. A new black velour headliner, and recover visors were installed. The front seats were blue and black, so i had the blue reupholstered in black swade. Door panels, rear seat and back package tray have all been redone in grey tweed. The front door panels are new made from all new materials. Carpet kit is New but does not fit as well as i would like it to, Dash pad is NOS. The dash sports a custom gauge cluster, with all auto meter gauges. Has the 350z vents and a wood Grant G/T steering wheel. The interior needs kick panels to be completely finished. All the fuel inlets and lines are new, including the metal lines and filler tube for refueling. The gas tank has an insump fuel pump. The wiring is hidden in the frame rails and under the dash, makes for a very clean engine bay. Alot of hours went into this. I had fellow 510 owners Daniel and Dan at DGR do the install of the SR20DET, very clean install.

Please call me only. 530-575-0911 James Johnson Asking $20000 or best offer. This car has less then 5000 miles on it after build. Car is located in Penn Valley, CA 95946

Build one for less. I have seen other cars that lack much detail for less. I have way more then the asking price into this car. If i did the SR20 install i would have less into it, but then it would still be in my shop waiting to be finished. Also the ad states best offer. Had an offer for $14K. All is good and this car is fun to drive, but starting another build.

Tis not how it works. Ask xlr8r if he would have taken the $9300 offer instead of, later, settling for the $6800 it fetched the last time up on eBay. This despite his "$25000" he had in to it. It's all about what someone will pay for it today.

Mostly, it's what else you could get for $20K. And today there are a lot of nice cars that would trade for $20K or less.

Seems like a good value on both ends.
I mean I have seen worse honestly, but there’s no denying at the moment this front end fits like a prick in a sock. Still, with a few hours careful fettling with a hammer, I’m sure it could look like a piece of crap. – Nik Blackhurst

I don't have to sell it and it's like driving a new car that is a powerful 510. Most everything is new. If i had to sell i might of taken $14K but only if i had to sell.

Oh man, I hope this thread doesn't turn into XLR8R thread part 2 with everyone chiming in with the 'it's not worth that much, it's worth this much' back and forth.
Good luck with the sale James, hope it goes to someone who'll enjoy driving it as much as you enjoyed building it!

it may be worth 20 grand but it seems like a bad time to sell. car looks nice and an sr swap is worth a good bit of money.

good luck with the sale.

I like the old hot/cold shifter knob :) I think the Probe rims would have to go to get anywhere near the asking price. I do think the $14-15k is a far more reasonable price if it's truly as nice as you say.

You may be able to get $20k in 3-4 years when the economy really rebounds. If you don't need to sell it, I wouldn't even try anytime in the next 12 months.

I do wish you good luck and it does look to be a real solid built car.

The Ford Probe wheels i just needed to see on a dime. Now i'm over that look. It had a carbon fiber hood, but over that too. Yes the seats are Subi seats recovered. It blows my mind how ez it is to get buried in one of these little cars. I did all the body and paint, and installation of most the interior, suspension, and reassembly of the trim and other parts. DGR did the complete engine and wiring swap. If i did everything i would have less cash into it. but have you ever tried to install a headliner. Thanks to everyone for their positive comments.
