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 !
