Just picked this bad boy up this week. I'm not sure of my plans- more of a resto mod.

It's been a daily driver for the 2 previous owners and is not stock. Prelude front seats, rattle can paint job, some plastic side mirrors, etc.

Overall it's in great shape. Runs, drives, shifts, and stops like a champ! Tires are near new, brakes good, and all other safety components are solid.

It even has collector plates! I picked it up for 2200 including a spare front RUNNING sunbframe(engine, trans, etc), and boxes of parts.

When I first got it...

First mods:

I washed it(I hate the black paint, but it looks better when it's clean). I plan to single stage paint the original color, R81. I am not making the body perfect, just clean some dents and give it a decent paint job.

Removed side mirrors(have fender mirrors on the way).
Chopped 2 coils from the front.
Restored the wheels and center caps.
Removed rear interior/panels/seats, and door panels(making new template from masonite and recovering to emulate the factory ones.

Good job on the wheels.

Thanks!

Old owner stopped by with a bunch of spare parts including perfect bumpers.

Cleaned and prepped new front bumper and installed with fresh metric carriage bolts. Deleted the bumper bars. Replaced the grill with a non painted one(until I can strip and polish the other) and added the fender mirrors.

Looks much better imo

Finally painted it! The finish is a little orange peel esque, but I don't care. Looks great, just having a straight, monochromatic car!

I like the color. Lots of pigment no metal. I have always liked orange peel and you can always buff it out if you get the urge.

Hey I just bought a 1971 N600 in a color very similar to what you just painted yours, I think you got a better deal though, I haven't been able to get mine running yet

I like what you're doing with yours, good job
