Hello everyone, Allow me to introduce myself and my project! My name is Frode, and i live in Oslo, Norway, and this is my pride and seasonal ride, Stacie.
She is a 1971 HLS30 Datsun 240z, imported from california a couple of years ago.
She Was in decent condition when i picked her up, specially concidering she has been around the odometer twice, around 300000kms!
Here is how she looked when i picked her up:

Image
Surprisingly "rustfree", but sporting a backyard paintjob by previous owner.ImageInterior is pretty clean too, but the sill and driversseat is well worn.

The plan for my ride is low, wide and a bit obnoxious. I was never a fan of the American bumper bars, so they had to go.
Removed the rearbumper alltogether, and underneath you can see the oem color

Here she is parked up besides my buddy Kims red 70
Image I wanted to get the car Washed one Day and suddenly it looked like this

I drove the car like that most of the summer of 2013...

I ordered the coilover kit from technotoytuning, and got a buddy of mine who is a fabricator to help me build the New setup. Obligatory before picture:Image
Then he got to work shortening the shockcasings to fit the New setup and Yellow Koni Race dampers ordered from Summit.Some difference!Image

As my buddy was welding the New strutcasings i also replaced all subframe bushings and some hardware that we broke trying to get the car apart. Spring came along and we had not gotten to fit the flares due to a few other projects taking place in the workshop. So i decided to just drive her as Much as i could summer of 2014, and so i did!Image

I am also debateing wether or not to use the louvre once i get her painted.

A while ago i bought some tires too, i have been running these on my Mx-5 for two years and i am really pleased:
Image

and to go with the tires i had to have some new wheels: Hoshino Impul and Glowstars
Image

Put together they look something like this:

And the plans have changed a bit, i recently ordered a Restored.jp G-Nose, so i wont be using the Kameari Front lip

Tough call on the louvre. Cleanest without but period mods are cool.

Got plans for the slotmags or selling ?
