This is an amazing resto so far - it's a shame about the strict modification laws in Switzerland, but I can't wait to see this car completed!!

@ drive by:yeah i always see bad cars on my trips to UK.i heard you can drive everything on the streets as long it has lights and brakes.isn't it?

@knoonz:thanks a lot.we learnt to handle our laws,but they will always be stronger and stronger,and we have to pay more and more for our certificates!!

At the moment the laurel is at the paintshop and will be ready to paint in about 2 weeks!!i'm very excited!!
last week i did some cage works and was preparing the engine bay with primer.
this week i have to strip the doors,prepare the fenders and hood and all the small parts.
then the bumpers will go to the sandblaster after i've installed some reverse gear lights.they are missing in the JDM taillights,and we need them over here!!

thanks eric:-) it was important for me to keep the original color code.

i will post some pics with allready finished details very soon.
at the moment have still a lot of parts who have to get sandblasted or powdercoated or galvanized.
here a few pics:

a lot of stuff came back from sandblasting and is ready to get painted
Image

the clips for the sill "deco" and the door adjustplates came back with new galvanized surface.all the other screws and washers i did a few months before.
Image

and i know what to do on this rainy weekend here in switzerland.cage,some heatshields and protection shields are fresh powder coated in black.

back on track!
after my accident at work which didn't let me work on the datsun for 3 months i started to continue my project.
i took home a lot of inspiration on a 3week japan trip wit a lot of jnc.
then i was also able to source a lot of parts from a swiss wrecker who opened his doors to public after 70years of parting out all kind of cars!!
so i took a lot of stuff for my laurel,for a future project and some stuff i will sell to the world!
i was able to pick up a G20 engine wich donates his twin SU carbs to my G18.
i have almost finished the interior with new carpets and the almost mint dash and seats.
the jdm taillights are installed.frontgrill,bumpers,windows,bonnet,trunk lid,doors and lamps are back on the car.
tomorrow i want to adjust the doors and install the engine and gearbox(without head).
after that there is some work on the valves and intake area and my dad is cleaning up the carbs. then i have to build up the custom exaust manifold and new harness.
of course pics will follow!!!

She`s looking good on the teaser shot 8)

Just picked upp a pair of G20 and 200Lgearboxes (lower geared r123 and much
more precise shifting) :mrgreen: Dont know if output spline and length fit tho.

Measured inn valve to 43mm and exh. 35mm
Inntake ports are 34mm and Exhaust 34x30mm

Will measure head cc soon.

Any chance to compare with the G18 while its apart ?

I saw in a earlier pic you had bought a steering wheel boss kit.

Was it the same as for a 510?
