  1. Just make sure you use sun tan lotion especially on your personables. You definitely don't want those to burn.
  2. Seems like anyone can call themselves a designer these days. Just name your layers in Photoshop please. I swear I've wanted to take designers that don't name layers out to the parking lot and beat their azzz.
  3. He is now for the last 10 years when I started my resto. For the 20 years before that he wasn't and the taillights were fine, miraculously. What had happened was one of the sockets in the left taillight kept rusting out. It just kept doing it so I bought those after market ones to replace them and they were pretty but there was nothing wrong with mine except for the freaking socket. I was always careful about getting water around there even when I washed him (hand wash) and the darn thing would rust out anyway. Had me baffled. Still has me baffled.
  4. I don't need to. I've worked with knuckleheads that have done it. I've seen some stupid shit get by and printed. Poor Photoshop work is the best like these.
  5. This is true but at the same time there's a lot of other craziness out there to give us plenty of meme fodder.
  6. This is what happens when you don’t have a good production artist. I never would’ve let that happen. The other thing with bus art is placement of things on windows if you have someone’s head on a window at night when the bus lights are on inside the head disappears.
  7. Only taillights you’ll be able to get are either from a car in the junkyard or the repros on ebay. I have the repros on my 210. Socket is backward so you’ll have to fix that but they are nice.
  8. I worked for a company where the CEO fit that description. I actually deemed her the hooven one. What a beast that woman was.
  9. If that's what you're looking for I've been making them for a while. I think my ad expired but I still got some if you're interested.
  10. You're welcome. Hope he can send it. Randy's a good guy.
  11. Ranman72 says he has one from an '81. I told him he should hit you up. Maybe you should DM him and see if he'll ship it to you.
  12. You should send her a message if you're willing to ship it. I'm sure she'd love to have it. She's in Washington. Or you can comment on the thread: https://ratsun.net/topic/78209-are-all-210-sedan-trunk-years-universal/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-1700256
  13. Anybody in or around Ontario, CA that can check out the 1980 round eye 210 for the trunk lid at the LKQ at 700 E 21st Street N? Another user is looking for one. Her handle is witchespellmichelle if you can. It was available 1/9 so it may or may not still be there. I think they keep the cars a little longer out there in the IE than they do here in LA.
  14. Aww, well that stinks 😐 I was able to get a NOS fender through that site a couple years ago. Amazing! If I were closer to Ontario (I’m 60 miles away) I’d go check out that car. I’ll post in the wrecking yard thread and see if anyone out there can check it for you. I know there’s a dude that generally hits a lot of the yards gathering parts cause he makes extra money.
  15. I bet you look great in pastels 😁 Have you tried car-part.com? If they have it they’ll generally ship.
  16. The 210/B310 is rather specific to itself. Doesn't share any body parts that I know of. Some interior pieces are compatible with the 720. My parts book shows one part number for the trunk so it's possible the trunk lid is the same for '79 - '82. I don't know where you're located but there's a round eye B310 in Ontario, CA right now. If someone is close maybe they'll be willing to pull it for you if you can't find one.
  17. So back to this. I go away for a minute and it's all a wreck. I agree with naner. Can't log in or do anything in iPhone. On iPad if I turn it horizontal then I can sign in. I also stopped getting emails sent to my personal account when someone would send me a message here. WTF! Fix this shit! And I liked the old classifieds too.
  18. I don't know. I didn't peek under the hood or car and the entire gear shift was gone when I got to it or I would've noted the speed on the shift knob when I was looking around inside.
  19. There’s a 1980 2-door 210 in LKQ Sun Valley. Just dropped yesterday. I forgot to take pictures. Got there when they opened this morning and me some other dude made a beeline for it. He was after the front bumper. I took the taillight sockets and rear side markers. Interior was pretty shredded. Body was in decent shape. All the glass was there.
  20. Got the base painted and it's in the case. I'm calling it done.....for now.
  21. Set the glass in so I could see what it looked like. The farking wipers popped off when I did so I had to glue those back on. Some of the glass came from the donor car I purchased just in case I messed up so some of them snapped in but others not so much. I may have to glue to reinforce its placement. It's looking good. Now I need to paint over the case base and put 1981 Datsun 210 on it. Case bottom
  22. I don't know of this but the stuff the guy uses in the video (Microset) is pretty good. If helps the decal to form to the car. The decals I got from Bedlam Creations was really easy to work with. I took the transparent film off the backing and applied to the car and was able to maneuver in place. That other decal paper I bought is super delicate. I mangled it a couple of times before I figured out a technique. You really can't touch it or move it in place. you pretty much need to be spot on with your application. I'm cleaning up the paint job I did on the front right now.
