    my datsun 1800 c30 laurel

    hallo there my name is stefan,i`m 28 years and living in switzerland.
    i really like the JNC site,and it`s at the time to start my own thread.

    i bought this c30 laurel in december last year and i really like to work on it.
    he is in good condition,the last time he was rolling on the streets,was in 1989.the pre owner was loving cars and never left it outside in this 22 years.
    but somebody did a lot of crap weld works,and now it`s my part to do this better to get a good basic without rust.
    the last 4.5 years i was spending a lot of hours into my s14 silvia show car.
    but this is my first restoration and i`m alway happy to get tips and tricks and offers for c30 parts or links.
    thanks

    Hello! Well, you're only the third person I know with a 1st gen Laurel (Datsun 1800). And only the second I know with a C30. (I've got a KC30) So welcome!

    There's one guy on here (Eric) that has the other C30 I know of, a '71, that he installed a SR20DE into. Here's his build thread, though none of the pics seem to be good links anymore:
    viewtopic.php?t=8475&postdays=0&postorder=asc&star t=0

    Also, for parts info, I've come across this link to the parts catalog:
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/37323314/Dats ... log-300dpi

    Lastly, definitely like to see some pics!

    The link should work, it's got an option to download the pdf file, that's what I did. It's a really handy part number list for you car.

    i received the car complete with all parts and in the trunk was a new muffler,taillights brakes and some stuff but i had to start striping at the first day.the car has 130000km and i think he was repainted in the past.at first i will finish all the weld jobs,then build up the suspension after that the brakes and fuellines engine an finally the interior.
