Very nice.  The word, 'hooligan' comes to mind.  Make sure you read up on the new revisions to the Ontario stunt driving laws ^_^.

Your car looks great.  What a blast it'd be to drive it.  The 510s are great cars. 

Did you tee into the filtered air boot, or is it off the shelf?

Love that old truck!!

Also the car looks fabulous. How did your door seals turn out? Did you have similar problems to what I had?

I don't actually remember what the problem was, I used Permetex HD weatherstrip adhesive as a contact cement and they went on nicely.

The seals would fold over instead of laying flat against the body.  Like there wasn't enough space to allow them to lay flat while the doors closed. Ill see if I can make a picture

Did you ever get the hanging idle sorted?

Sort of, I got the idle down to 800 rpm and the timing set dead on 20*, it still hangs a bit but doesn't affect the driving of the car, it only does it at idle when I blip the throttle so at the moment it's not a problem.  I have a new water temp sender coming this week, I've read that a bad sender can screw with the idle.

I cemented both sides of the right angle on the back of the seal to the door and let them cure with the door open with no pressure on them, the doors have spent most of the time since installation closed and so far they are holding well and sealing properly, got caught in a rain storm coming back from getting the car safetied  and there were no leaks. I wish I could say the same for the 240Z, I have to carry a towel in that car.

The seals fold over on the front lip when they meet the body

Oh right that happened to me as well so I coated the rubber seal and the door frame it rests on with some light lithium grease so the seal slipped pass area that it wants to hang up on, I had to reach down to that area from inside the car with long knife and once the seal was sitting properly close the door and leave it that way for a couple of days.

Looks great. May I know where did you get your shift knob?

Made that, 1" dia Oak dowel with a hole drilled in the center and a threaded metal insert epoxied inside. I made it on a lathe but it could easily be made on a drill press too.
