Yatming Nissan Gloria, Now With Fancier Shoes!

Illustration for article titled Yatming Nissan Gloria, Now With Fancier Shoes!

Love my yatmings, particularly early metal base ones when they rivaled Tomicas and Playarts. I’ve posted the Gloria with the dual Nissan and Datsun tampos, but I wanted to find a duplicate that I could try some other and better wheels on.

After some patient searching, a donor casting appeared with the same tampos, not quite as nice as the mint one I already had, but one I wouldn’t feel too awful about screwing up.

I had to go with some narrow Real Riders, as the usual panasport style I wanted were far too wide without major base modification. Even with these skinny ones, some grinding was necessary, as well as axle shortening.

Overall, I’m pretty pleased, and the slotted mag wheel style is similar to jdm aftermarket wheels these Glorias are often found with.
