Some rust in the lower guards, and the doors have some pin holes, but apart from the there's a little surface rust in places which is easy fix. Looks like the passenger guard will need a new lower section so I'll change it for the moment.

Floors and boot are almost perfect!!! A little bit of water sat under the spare wheel causing the colour. I've wire brushed it and treated the surface rust already. No holes!! I've got good front seats I'll use from my Kenmeri project.

It's a factory 4 speed!! So happy

There was a factory jack and tool kit in the boot too.

Thinking of using these 280zx rims on it.

Not clear from the pix, but is the "Pleather" vinyl upholstery plain or semi leather grained? If "leather" grained, I have found that a grain dubbed "Wallaby", which I am assumed you know the derevation of, is an exact replacement for very early [circa 1967] Datsun models. Perhaps there is an Aussie domestic vinyl upholstery shop who can provide the correct graining. Looks like a very good start!

I actually have some good seats ready to go from the coupe which i'll put in.

New carpet has been ordered. New rad hoses and fuel hoses have been ordered.

I have prices of new springs (25-44mm lower) to replace the mismatched set. New shocks are being organised as well.

Things are progressing well, i'm having to do a switch around with the coupe to get the wheels off to replace the brake hoses and repack the bearings and bleed the brakes. I have finned drum brake covers to go on as well.

Sadly the paint is terrible. It's been repainted and done very poorly with not much paint on the body, so a light sand back is out of the question. I'll just try to polish it up and see how it goes until i can get the pinholes fixed, i'll get the paint matched from the underside of the boot and get it entirely repainted.

Exciting times.....considering turning the coupe into a race car for some fun

I'll definately look that up, i'm hoping to maybe get away with not having to replace any interior as i want to do it all at one time to ensure the same quality and fabric

Ok had a peek under the old girl. Looks really clean. A few dents from a country life but no rust!!!

Image

Looks like I'll only need to change a few rubber boots/seals and a general tidy up for roadworthy. I might change the flex brake lines though as they look a bit old.

On a plus note it's got the better brake option of the sumitomo twin piston calipers which is nice. I think these can be modded to take a vented disc later on

Image

Even the discs and pads are fairly new. The rear drums seem ok but the hand brake is sticking so I'll look into that. I have some finned drum covers for the back too.

Best get moving, November 1 is approaching !

Not much progress as I've been really crook.

Managed to crawl outside for a couple of hours and got stuck in

Image

Took the complete read end apart and re cleaned it (I was lazy first time).

Polished the lenses of the tail lights using novus plastic polish. That stuff it amazing!!!

I wet sanded the tail light panel with 1200 and then polished the whole thing inc chrome with various products. The paintwork is quite sad so I think this may be as good as it gets without being resprayed.

I treated the bar as best as I could then polished, but that too needs to be rechromed.

At the moment I want this car to be a survivor car, not restored so I'll do what I can to keep her ticking along.

The only exception is some rims and a tad lower. I'm buying these off a mates car so they should look great. The price was one that I couldn't refuse.

Mates Yonmeri
Image

The wheels are by Black Racing in Japan. They're full alloy and 15x6.5j +40 so the fit is about right. His car hasn't been modded track wise so they'll go fine.
Image

I have new front shocks on order and a new one piece carpet on the way too.

Just need to kick this damn flu!!!

Ha! Nice machines... Are there full historic issue plates available in Vic now? Better looking than those ghastly red club things, but full price I would guess. Wrong font though? Neko.

The aqua car is on full reg. Yes club reg is still that horrible maroon but the regs are in the process of changing. So who knows how it will end up

Congrats!! That's a brilliant find.
In some perverse way I almost like the 4 doors better than the coupes... :?
Cool colour too and she looks good with your new alloys.
Looking forward to more... :wink:

I never intended to buy a 4 door but it is really growing on me now.

I've been getting stuck into the front brakes and grill area when I bumped the car and dust came out of from under the passenger guard. This guard needs repairs, so the dust was a worry. I pulled the guard and found this.

Image

Image

Image


Now I was scared!!!!! I got in there expecting the worst, waiting to see the Swiss cheese
Image

So very lucky!!! I'll clean and treat that and all good!

This is how much dirt came out. 3tonne stand as a size reference
Image

So I tapped on the drivers side and got this
Image

Here we go again........

Image
Image

Very lucky. Glad I checked now and not later on.

Also carpet arrived. Is about to go into the car
Image
Image

Seems like things are finally falling into place

New carpet in!!!!!

Image

Flying ahead now. Have the new shocks to put in. Need some fuel lines, maybe a heater hose and to muck about with the brakes.

Racing to be ready for a car show on Nov 1st

An absolutely MASSIVE day today!

Got stuck in with dad and got a bit done. This car was a country car and it showed.

So the underside of the car was wire brushed and cleaned and using compressed air the crap was blown out. It was incredible

About a 1/4 of the way in
Image

From this...
Image

To this!!!!
Image

All this dust came from the RH side of the crossmember alone! A bent coat hanger was used to pull it out and a vacuum and air compressor helped!
Image

Found time to replace the broken aerial with a aftermarket one which needed modding
Image

And managed to choose, repair and clean two seats. Replace the glovebox and reroute some wiring to basically finish the interior. I'll get the bases redone soon hopefully. Black wool covers will work for the moment.
Image

On top of all that rebuilt the back drums by stealing from my KHGC110 coupe (which is getting rear disc conversion) and bled the brakes.

I'm stuffed !!!!! :wink:
