    I've seen a fender at a local scrapyard. Other parts might still be there. I'll have a look :tu:

    This model is quite popular back then, being much much cheaper than other cars of its era.

    I have more pictures for today. I went to take the flat wheels off and replace with the new tires. Unfortunately, this car use 12 iches rim. So, i need some time to find tires. The engine was changed to Nissan A13 engine. I will try to change it back to the orginal aircool. It is so lucky that front and rear suspention are original. The difficulting for me is finding tail light and fron turn signal.

    I have some more picture. I tow it to my house and start to take it apart. I take the old paint off. You can see from the picture how thick it is. It thicks about 1 cm.





    I remove all equipment from the engine compartment and I hope that I will remove the engine out by next week.



    Raing gutter and other part are seem to be OK.









    I will update again next week
