Thought I'd share some pics here of my new project.
Generally very tidy but has some rust I'll have to address once the car is stripped

Yes she made it accross the island :-)
Panel beater can't start until October (unless I find someone else) so will start sourcing some new bits for the build.
Trying to figure out what wheels to get...old school or something more modern.
Superlites in a 16.8" with an offset of -4 are the current frontrunners

OK, got the old girl stripped down so now she’s off to a panel beater who is going to replace the sills with new rolled sections, repair the boot floor,doors ,guards and around the windscreens.
He thinks it will take a couple of months and I’m welcome to drop by to take some pics. Hopefully I’ll be able to update this thread along the way.

Progress photos are a must. Did you decide on wheels?

I'm thinking of these
They are 18x8.5 and 9.5 offset +18 but not sure if they'll fit
Image

Or I could go the VS-KF's
Image

Open to suggestions or someone who can advise what will fit

18" is way too large, 16 would be better

That's hot!

IMO 18" is a tad big for older cars. 16" or smaller seems to be the general consensus.

But then again it's YOUR car so make her into how you imagine she should be. A car always reflects on it's owner :D so go crazy if that's how you want to roll

I do like that last photo tho!

Took your advice but missed out bidding on a set of these 15"x8.5"
Couldn't increase my funds in my bidding account in time.
Oh well I won't leave it so late next time.

You might want to look into [USA terminology] Infiniti J30T forged wheels. They strongly resemble the above set of wheels but are forged, not cast!

Took the big girl off to the panel shop today.
Bit of work to do but the panelbeater said other than a couple of bad spots she's in pretty good nick for 38 years and previous poor rust repairs.

Anyone know if a 15x9" -1 offset wheel would fit without needing to flare arches etc?

Thought I'd share as I found it in my photobucket album

Me rallying a 1965 Prince Skyline GT-B back in the mid 70's I guess (Nissan parts guys hated me as parts were impossible to find)

Yeah I know...I'm old

Nothing wrong with being old. I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era for cars (i was born in 97), it's all hi tech and high weight these days when all i want is a triple carbed straight 6 in a RWD platform that doesn't weigh more than 1200kg.

I can't even begin to imagine how doing that sort of stuff would feel like. Especially when the sportiest car I've driven is a toss up between a Telstra-spec BA Falcon wagon and a Kia Rio with a manual trans.

NOW you're talking! Did you have it long? That appears to be the series 3 model. Nissan Skyline A200 GT-B ('67 ~'68)
Always on the lookout for any stories and info on the S54 series Prince and Nissan Prince in Australia and New Zealand.
I'm old enough to know better but too young to resist! :mrgreen:
Thanks for sharing Mr R34 :tu:
