Heya guys!
It's been a long time since I've updated this, and I have a Mitsubishi 360 to blame for most of that. Also, searching for a set of good used rear fenders is proving to be very... not fun, haha. Haven't wanted to do too much to the car until I'm positive I can get some quality rear fenders and rust free doors on it.

Mostly I need this car: http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b107568971
It has the trim I'm missing, floor pans that match, clean(ish) rear fenders and doors and so on. Unfortunately, I don't have 5 grand just floating around.
Other option is to pick up these two: http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e98077606 and http://page18.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w48892394
Then weld those on and try to save what I can of the doors. Then find another donor car (kind of whatever is cheapest) and cut out the floor pans from that and bend to fit (ie. use it as a solid steel donor).

I did, however, get a set of triple webers for the engine!
So dirty, yet so sexy!

Will keep y'all updated as soon as I get some solid body panels!
Cheers
David

I second the Mikuni statement. Those are Mikunis, not webers. Keep them, you are better off with them.

You guys are right about the carbs, haha. These updates are few and far between but will get much more frequent as soon as the Mitsubishi is done! At any rate, I got some wheels for it. Neighbor is moving out so he gave me the hook up on the bad boys. They're staggered 15 inch rear and 14 inch front, not sure if I like that, but, free 99 is hard to say no to, haha.

15 inch Black Racings on the left and 14 inch Watanabes on the right.

Image

Placed in front of the shop wheels that are on it now.

Will keep the updates coming in as I receive more parts, haha.
Cheers
David

David,

Very cool project.

You are right, running or not, that engine looks mean with the side drafts on it!

I got some bad news (mixed with good news, haha).
I decided to sell the Skyline. Sadly, she has left the building. The rust was far too much and my wallet just couldn't handle it. If I were to do the bodywork all myself using used panels it would still cost me around 10 grand to do it. So, I struck up a deal (one hell of a deal I might add) with a local shop called "Classic Car Nagoya."

Here's the Skyline all buttoned up ready for her transfer out of here.

Image

Prepping for the tow.

Image

Extra parts stacked into the back of a kei truck ready for the trip to the shop.

Image

Front end taped and ready to go.

Image

All ready for the trip.

Image

It took a lot of us to push it out of here.

Image

Onto the truck.

Image

"Bye bye Skyline."
"Adios mi amigo."
"さようなら、スカイライン。。。”

Image

Now before we go getting too teary eyed, if you remember earlier I said I struck up one hell of a deal. I'll never give up on restoring cars, just changed my focus. Changed my focus to what? Well, that's a great question!

The deal I struck up was a trade, that car for this car!

Image

Be sure to check out the rest of the pictures and the ensuing build here!

Thanks everyone for the support!
