The wheels are from the Tamiya Nissan R390 GT1 race car kit. If you look in the photos link the Datsunlimited put up you will see the car there. Funny thing is the Million dollar Blue R390 GT1 that is there has the same steering wheel as the Cherry will be getting.
And No I wont be letting the Hustler's go. They are mine and will be staying in my shed till I put them on the car. Unless you want to swap a set of Superlites???
I would never put dirty old SLR flares on the Cherry I have been looking at a few other different sets though. I will need a set to cover the Hustlers when I put them on.

Well I now have started on getting the A15 rebuilt and am in the process of putting the A14 I got from B10wagon into the Red Cherry. Then I will be fixing up the disc brake rear and putting that in also.

Project engine work has stalled for abit until I can get the alloy sump modified. it is 20mm bigger than the original N10 one. So that means I cant get the gearbox to mount back on to the engine. Hopefully will have the sump modified before Xmas If Im lucky. Doesnt matter I have started playing with the interior and tidying it up. Plus once my new brake pads arrive i can start to put the disc rear end into the car.

A12 sumps are mainly out of the Coupe's but there was also a few of the other body models fitted with the A12's later on. I know of only two A12 sumps here in Aust the one in my coupe and the one in the coupe in Qld. I wouldnt fancy getting one shipped from England or Japan as They are a little on the heavy side.
Before any one ask's no I cant use a steel sump because the alloy ones have one of the engine mounts incorporated into it. (check the photo in previous posts).
