Spent a little time in the garage today cleaning up the old 710 grill. Gave it a power wash, rubbed it down with a little fine sandpaper, then some acetone. Spray painted it with Krylon Fuzion plastic-adhering satin black, hand painted the perimeter with some metallic silver, cut and formed some 3/16″ stainless steel wire mesh for the headlight grills, and couldn’t resist installing a spare Datsun grill badge from the Wagon. Now it’s the best looking part of the car 😉

The h165 axle on my Datsun 710 had 1/8″ toe-out and zero camber. It made the handling a bit twitchy and did not give ideal tire wear, so I took it to Paul Moore at The Moore Speed Co and had him fix it for me. After removal and measurement, he used the cut-and-weld method to alter the axle housing geometry to an ideal 1/16″ toe-in and 1/2 degree negative camber.
