    [/IMG]Busa Datsun-a026.000-1-.jpg

    She is going to be real tight, on the Roadster the frame rails get real skinny only where the engine needs to be

    So I got out the Plasma and clearanced the frame a little bit.

    No room for header primaries so I'll just make a short turbo header

    Thanks Lug, just got busy over the holidays, I'm slow but persistent.

    Busa Datsun-c013-1-.jpg

    Made sure hood would close, I didn't want to do some 70's hood scoop, I want it to look stock.

    Busa Datsun-c014-1-.jpg

    Pretty close to hood, I'll have to put some 90 degree elbows to move the throttle bodies down.

    Busa Datsun-c019.000-1-.jpg

    Start of the engine mount.

    Busa Datsun-c020-1-.jpg

    Finished forward mount. I figure I can't build the back mount until I build the header and route the down tube. The steering, engine mount and down tube will be competing for the same space

    ]Busa Datsun-d001.000-1-.jpg

    Here is the start of the header, Knew this was not going to be easy so I used my CAD skills.

    Busa Datsun-d010.000-1-.jpg


    The cardboard aided design work like a charm, using 3/8" stainless for the mounting as I'll build bracing off it to hold the weight of the turbo. Hopefully keeping the cracking to a minimum.

    Two and Three cylinders 45 degrees down to start.

    Basic header layout.

    Busa Datsun-e009.jpg

    Cutting the donuts to form the collector.

    Busa Datsun-e010.jpg

    Number one and four cylinders forming the up turn.

    Engine and header in chassie, not sure on the angle of the mounting flange yet so that is not welded, I'm thinking of tilting it towards the inner fender to give more clearance for the engine.

    Yea unfortunately I've been hard at it but I'm not dealing with anything good to post here. The car is 50 years old car and I'm chasing rust issues before I can move forward, also waiting on parts.

    This is what I've been dealing with, drivers side floor boards, yea that's the frame and floor.

    Busa Datsun-g002_001.jpg

    Made some door braces

    Busa Datsun-h001.002-1-.jpg

    Made a rotisserie, my plan is to get a solid body and get the car working, then work out any issues and put body back on rotisserie and change color to silver.
    Busa Datsun-i007.jpg

    Cut out both floorboards and making patch panels all over the car
    Busa Datsun-m006.jpg

    I did take some "Fun Time" and made the gauge mount
    Busa Datsun-q018.jpg

    Right now the floorboards are ready to weld in now but need to finish the exhaust, mount reverser and currently starting on the wiring and access without floorboards is great. It shouldn't be long before I have some good pictures of progress.
