Square tail lights or not, I love it. Welcome to the forum. How did you acquire the car? Looks great. :P :tu:

I see someone got bored, and had some red paint. :mrgreen:

And yes, I'd start up a build thread for it. :tu:

Car looks great. I have a similar motor in my car. Currently a L24EFI in my daily driver. Is that the original placement of the fuse box? Looks very well maintained. I do consider myslef a purist but only to a certain extent.
If this car were mine:
-different tail lights
-different rims
-lower stance
-relocate the fogs on the bottom of bumper(change to Marchal)
-source rear deck wedge speakers
SAVE ALL ORIGINAL PARTS

It's not mine but I have a feeling this car is in good hands.

its already got big wedge speakers in the back, and the original tape deck in it and it works !
i have already chopped up the rear lights to make some better looking ones.
i am also going to have to cut some of the arches away once the extensions are here.
its having proper c210 arch extensions, c10 front and rear spoiler.
interior is immaculate but nasty browny colour so if i can dye the interior black it would be a bonus.

Nice work. It looks like you are not wasting any time. I'll keep tabs on your build in the Datsun thread.
