Actually I think you are both wrong. It had a no brand box and the carb had no brand on it. I think it is a China made knock-off or something. It works well and it looks exactly the same. So I am not complaining. :D

Rear panel was welded in for a fit-up.

The rear was previously rear ended and some other bumper and lights were fitted on. Thanks to the rear light panel, lights, bumper and photos of the original rear panel, the bodyshop guy has reproduced the panel as close as can be. Now he is in the middle of fitting up the panels he made just to see if the dimensions all add up. Long way to go. Even the depression on the sides for the bumper needs to be rebuilt.


This was the panel fabricated

Just welded in for a fit up

Starting to take shape. Those are 4 door lights fitted to 2 door rear light panel. Good enough for a fit-up. Even the rear boot lid was fabbed from scratch. Anyone have proper lights to sell to me?

Hi all. Just a few more pics. Sorry about the quality. Taken from a mobile phone.

Panel beater makes the lower panel also based on pictures,

Panels welded in. The shop decided to galvanize the sheets before welding it in. Don't know how that will work out.

Hi Glomerus. THanks for the compliments. Really appreciate it. I just hope the end result is good. I am not sure how galvanizing would affect the adhesion of paint to the surface. I just hope it works out.

MOre pics of the rear lid. Inner frame and fabbed outer skin have been galvanized too. Not yet crimped together.

A better shot of the rear

Hi Glomerus,
The original colour of the car is white and I think I am going to stick with it. The "chromed" look might be a little too flashy.

I am glad you like the pics so far and thanks for the compliments. Sometimes when I put too much time into the car or I spend more money than I have on it, I am hoping I am not the only one in the world that thinks this is a good idea and thinks restoring this is worth the sacrifice. I just hope I don't end up like the guy who made an "Outhouse Hotorod" with a working shitter as his lifelong achievement!!!

Keep the postings on your thread coming in with pictures. I am sure many are waiting for the end results.

Norcal510,
The published date is 31 Oct 2010. However you need an ISBN number to order it. Just give your local book store the number and they should be able to order it for you. The ISBN number is as follows,

ISBN978-4-7796-1009-7

Glomerus,
Good to know that your car is getting the TLC it deserves. Please keep us posted on the progress.

My car was put on hold for a while. The bodyshop guy is only starting back again last Saturday. If you feel discouraged with the amount of work to be done, let me inspire you with the crappy condition of my car!!!

Image

Am surprised the rear window didn't just fall through!!! It was just putty and window glue holding it together.

Hi all,
After all the time spent at the bodyshop, the car has been sent to the paint shop. I am planning to paint it the factory white paint. However, I can't seem to find the proper paint code for it.
I remember someone in this forum posting a scan of a Datsun paint chart which did have a colour that was for the Datsun 240K. So right now I am hoping someone could give me the same link to that paint chart that was posted before.
ALso what is the factory paint code for the rear light panel? It looks like some sort of gun metal. Please refer to the image of the rear panel from JDM legends below. Thanks.

After a long silence, the work is back on track. Body is in another shop to straighten the panels and prep before painting.

Just got some Watanabe alloys. 14" 8.5J -13offset for rear and 8.0J -0 offset for the front. What tyre size would be correct?
