Plans are to lower it first with coilovers which I'm still a little confused about, but before that replace bushings, steering arms, a-arms, get aftermarket anti sway bars, get a dogleg 5 speed, el dizzy, su carbs, peanut head with some head work, mild cam, header and exhaust. I'm really tempted to do a VG/KA swap maybe even a rotary swap. Honestly I'll probably keep what I have for now because it runs really good. I do have some ZG fender flares I got from a friend for $30 bucks just love the way it looks with flares I'm just on the wall about cutting such a clean car. My plan was to find a rustier one to cut up and flare it, if i do end up doing it I want to do it right and color match the flares. Fisch's SX Appeal sketch he made of the JDM S10 has been the modivation for me even getting a 200sx for a long time now.

Thanks it's all there too and everything works even the heater lol.


The front sure does look so much like it but small as hell.

Sorry for no updates hard to keep up with 2 forums and social media crap lol anyway, I been threw a few datsuns lately, traded the 77 620 KC Pizzazzy for a 1 owner 72 620 with some weird stuff added from the original owner that wasnt to appealing to me. Bought a 74 710 wagon L18 4 speed manual ended selling it to a friend in bend. 5 days ago I bought a 78 620 dually flat bed that has a KA24DE, 720 5 speed pretty quick for the added weight thinking of taking the flat bed off and finding a bed for it.

As for the 200sx I bought a clutch/pedal assembly just need a 5 speed trans also found a S10 Silvia grille on the Japan auction had to get it just waiting for it to get here.
