G'day been restoring this n600 over the past year, the car has a rebuilt engine, I'm currently getting the interior upto scratch and also the body.
here's some pictures and info of its progress.
the car when i got it:
the bonnet and roof were much the same condition but overall the car was rust free just some pin dents
stripping the n600 back to bare metal
smoothing the body
getting closer to putting the colour down
this is the colour i have chosen
new tyres, rims painted, inner gaurds done, polished hubcaps.
I managed to find and purchase a pair of very stuffed and rusted n600 sedans one which had a deluxe dash which has a tacho and a trip meter in the speedo, also the other car had the deluxe centre console, gear knob and steering wheel. and i already had front disc brakes on the car and found a full set of deluxe badges in my collection of bits, so i'll be putting the deluxe items to use in this n600 (be a shame not to use them)
here's some work i have done so far.
the plastics were almost light grey in spots so a alot of polishing went on to bring the gauge rings back to good and the face panel, this meant i'd lose the silver paint that borders them but it was mostly scratched off anyway.
see the difference here:
the deluxe gear knob =)
i decided to ditch the stick on woodgrain, so i set to work peeling it off and removed all the glue residue, it was just too fadded and bubling in spots, also until i have the deluxe steering wheel repaired i have taken the center spline and horn button off a spare deluxe wheel and fitted it to an old eb1 civic aftermarket wheel to keep things looking neat.
