I finally wrapped up the harness install. I had to fab an antisubmarine belt mount and a seat back support. 

Feels nice and secure with a 5-point harness, especially compared to late 70's econobox seatbelts. The original 3-pointer is still installed and still works. 

Last weekend I saw another '80 210. The 3rd one I've ever seen. Hard to believe mine used to look like this!

In other news....strange things are afoot in East Point...

I think Datsaniti is pretty much ready for the $2000 Challenge. I had an autocross planned Sunday to scrub in the new tires, but I don't want to risk anything happening on the way to/there/during at this point. I'm just going to heat cycle/scrub in the Ho Ho's on the street and spend Sunday polishing and detailing the paint.

FWIW, it warms my heart to see a seat brace on the back of that Butler yes

For those of us who saw this car in person last year, what a transformation. Best of luck in all three events at the Challenge.

Remember when Datsaniti was just two donor vehicles and a twinkle in Travis' eye? I was there, and am beyond stoked to see the completed project in a couple days!

Man this thing is still awesome, I have a soft spot for wagons in general but this is the first time I've ever seen a Datsun wagon that made me want too own one

My sentiments exactly last week. Except for the build book. Receipts took all day to organize .

Now it's time to make a mark with it!

What did it wind up weighing?

How will it be classified for Solo? EMod or can you sneak it into one of the street classes?
