Custom Datsun 510 Wagon

One of my earliest customs, this Datsun 510 Wagon was given a repaint and wheel swap, care of the Retro Entertainment Tommy Boy Model.

I fell in love with these wheels and bought about 20 of the cars for their wheels, only to realise that the axle width on the 67 Plymouth Belvedere GTX is so narrow I was going to have to learn how to make my own axles.

I will be covering this topic in the coming weeks so stay tuned for that How To Guide, but needless to say it changed the game for me, and from that point there was no turning back... I was a customiser for life (yo)

I then found a model car in my collection that had these cool bucket seats inside. I cut them out with a knife and then using the same knife (scalpel type) I literally hacked out the two black seats from the Datsun Wagon until the red bucket seats sat neatly in their place. Took about an hour of hacking I reckon LOL.

So anyway, here's the car.
