  5. While out on the trailer, follow 510er BIG (owes The Datsunville Rat) took care of a full lube on the bird Got behind with getting her together, so towed her to the Datsun Solvang Roadster show I met this guy Tom, he imported this Bluebird Coupe in 1977 to California. Funny story we started talking. He mentioned he imported an orange coupe, then it got painted yellow. Light bulb over my head went off. This coupe was factory orange then repainted yellow. I thought it was imported in 1978. Nope 1977. and Tom use to own it. No taillights, however I had been saving a set of NOS taillights, since 2002, (before i ever owned a coupe), and installed them in the parking lot. The ones i want to use on this car are back at the chrome shop.

  8. Put in some hours, still missing a few Coupe specific parts. Installing rocker trim, something i almost never get around too. found some new and used clips Used anti seize to keep them from rusting, These ends rust and snap, when you go to remove them. Installed a super clean set of belt moldings and NOS rubber inner squeegees Now deciding on grill to run with Before installing the grill every hole needed to be cleaned of paint and debris
