Whoa!! :D Just stumbled across this build. Your attention to detail is incredible. This is going to be seriously well built car.

I love the shape of these things. Will be keeping a close eye on this build. Simply awesome 8)

Thanks guys. I called into the motor trimmers this morning to drop in the rear seats. Alan had completed one of the rear panels and it looks awesome, hard to see in these crappy pictures though sorry. Alan sourced some 3mm dense rubber to fit behind the vinyl to replicate the original depth around the stitched areas. Without it the panels would have looked too one dimensional and the stitched detail would not be as visible. One problem we've found is that the bright work on the top of the passenger door is damaged, it looks etched. I'm need to track down a replacement from and old door panel...could be tough!

Not as nice as a high freq welded piece but still pretty good considering. Once I fix the bright work to the panel it should look great. I'm really looking forward to seeing the rear seats and front door panels! Undecided on what to do with the front seats. It was goign to cost around $1200 per seat for a full rebuild and re-trim. A lot of money for old seats that will never be super comfy. I'd really like 2 fixed Datsun racing seats, I was thinking something like this...

Yep it sure is, by using some decent foam in between the board and vinyl Alan managed to get some real depth in the patterns. All of the detail work is machine stitched.

The hardest part will be making sure they fit my not-so-small behind. These Japanese seats were not designed with us bigger hipped Aussies in mind :lol:

Nice. I bought a Bride Brix for my old 34. I couldn't get my bum into it. My hips were too wide haha. :?

I called in to Oztrim to drop off my other door trims for butchering. I decided using them would be easier than trying to find replacement chrome. Alan had pretty much finished the back seats and has sewn together the covers for the door trims. They haven't been fitted to the actual cards yet though. The seats look amazing, I'm super impressed. Even though the fabrics are different the overall look is factory.

This is the base of the back seat. It's pretty much finished but Alan wasn't quite happy with the overall fit so he's going to add some more padding. Looks pretty nice though.

Image

This is one of the door skins ready to be fitted to the backing board.

Nostalgic style seats from OMP could be an option

That's given me a bit of an idea. The OMP Silverstone is really nice and not a bad price either!

Thanks :)

Thanks.

I picked up a LD28 crank too. I've been playing with the idea of building a L28 Stroker. I sent the crank away to be linished and tested. Came back all good. Standard size and nice and straight.

I'm goign to have a chat with Peter Mcdonnell about an engine build to try an get an idea of what's available and put together a budget, and maybe sell a kidney.

You appear to have an electric crank.
