My Datsun 510 is a work in progress. I was into Datsun's the day after I was born and this was the car literally rode in. So my interest in cars recently came about when I saw our family's old 510 rusting in a field for the past 25 years, until 2009 when I decided to take it on as my restoration project. Thought I'd start this blog about just different stuff that interests me (not just cars but hobbies too). This car is not for sale nor will it ever be for sale. *If your car is featured here against your wishes or you see incorrect information, please contact me at classicdatsuns@gmail.com , and I will make any necessary changes. Have fun viewing. I am not affiliated with any sponsors, company, or body shop. I'm just a dude that likes Datsuns.

Interior Dash & Pedal Removal (4/15 - 4/26 - 2012)

I haven't posted in a couple weeks but here are some pictures from a week and a half ago till now.  The dash is my main focus right now and it's a pain working in such tight areas of the car.  Anyway this is what has been going for nearly the last two weeks.  I really don't think my A/C is going to survive this rebuild.  I'm still saving all the parts just in case though.  You never know.





More electrical labeling.  Seems like those wires never end.  I can't even imagine working on a present day car.



Finally I removed the dashboard!!!!!  Now moving on to other stuff like removing the A/C box fan blower.




Now with that out of the way, I can see I'm going to need to scrape more of the sound deadening material there.

Rebuild-able??


I finally removed the clutch and brake pedal.  I had to use a #17 on my socket wrench set to remove a bolt on each side.  The clutch came out easy.  The brake pedal was not so easy.  The bolt looks like it's screws out clockwise.  I labeled this as the reverse brake pedal bolt.  It took a few turns till I realized that I was crushing the washer beneath.  *note to self - it's probably the only bolt on the car that's different.

So here is how it looks now.  after I take everything out, I'm really going to start cleaning things up inside.  I'm also going to need to figure out how to make a storage space for all these parts.
