D110 resto-slight mod

Hello all. I have been around here for along time with my own D90, but my son wanted a 110 as a first car. I told him no and he found a sweet deal. Being the pushover that I am, we imported a truck for him. Anyway, he has 2 years to get it up and running.

These are the major short term goals.
1. Get a tire-tube that will work as we have one that is flat. Did not know these are tubed. Wow.
2. Put one of my old reman steering boxes in and get power steering back.
3. Figure out what to do about getting disk brakes on the rear. Also did not realize the rears were drum.

Long term goals.
1. Pull the motor and rebuild
2. Fix the dents and paint it a cool color.
3. Fix up the interior. Make it safer, including an internal or external roll cage. Not sure how we are going to go on this.
4. Add HVAC.
Anyway, we will be posting updates.

I actually just did my c pillars today. Take a good look around and take measurements everywhere you can before you cut the old ones off and trace them on the body panels with a sharpie. I missed doing all that and just measured from the b pillar but of course the new ones are slightly different, funny thing is the originals were 17 1/4" and 17 1/2" back from the b pillar, but the new ones when bolted in and clamped down both came in at 17 1/2". Once the bolts are in and the bottom is pulled down to the sill it doesn't have much movement, I also put clamps on the slanted part of the tub but you gotta be careful not to cock it over. I don't even know if I'm making sense lol.

Also take a look at this video, b pillar is 34 3/4" (if I remember correctly) from the bulkhead and should be parallel. I think you got +-3" from what I've been dealing with lol.
