  1. Coupes have foam over the rear quarter panel area, usually this is exposed on sedans.

    Vinyl then wraps all the way to pinch weld and hides under the pinch weld molding.

     

    This is a 1st for me but very happy with how things are turning out.

      After cutting the vinyl and attaching it to a thin card board strip. I used a solder gun to melt holes in the vinyl

    This stuff works better then anything at the moment 

     

    20211004_144303_resized.jpg

     

     

    NEW door locks $100 from ebay, however labeled complete set but actually 2 sets of door locks, time to modify and make work.

     

    20210818_115904_resized(1).jpg

     

    Minor amount of filing and the trunk lock lever fits and works for the trunk lid

    Door cards are solid, but the detail at the bottom is jacked, cleaned the shit out of the 1st one with lacquer thinner and red scotch brite, then resprayed the chrome detail.

    Looks good actually better then I thought

  3. Another Datsunville project. Some saved Datsuns don't become Ratsun write ups. and end up getting sold before they're finished. or abandoned. 😞

     

    Not enough time in the day to do them all. :)

     

    Picked up this early 70 4 door a year ago. Looked like a pile, However once we got started with it realized, its not all that bad. Sacramento Car back in it's day and found in a field by the person I got it from.

     

    20200806_070604.jpg

     

    Slapped some cool Japanese wheels on it and BANG big difference

    Every other window was broke, so as we cleaned, I found good CLEAR glass and got it installed. Most 70 models have tinted glass, this car has clear and 69 door panels

    Now we get to see what we are working with, Trunk and rear lower quarters are the worst of it all. 95% of everything else is tittes.

  4. Pics look great, totally missed the Williams show. Looks like a great turn out. 

     

    Goon looks good, where did you get the dizzy wires clamp that are mounted in front of the valve cover? Those definitely clean up the wires.

    I even brushed a coat of Lizard skin on the inside of this divider panel 

     

    20210817_175850_resized.jpg

     

    Old crappy rear quarter panel vinyl, going to replace with new. Not an upholstery guy but seems straight forward.

    Time to assemble doors, hinges, and get these doors to line up. Taping aka cleaning paint and crap out of tread holes.

     

    20210809_141110_resized.jpg

     

    Wire wheel bolt treads clean. Small steps that make a huge difference when assembling everything

  8. Picked up from Roberts Shop, And a few things broke. Not Roberts fault, just part of breaking the car in, no pun intended. 

    Again a bit disappointed with new parts not working after 20 miles. I chose to buy new parts to limit shit failing.

    Once a few more tiny details were taken care of, I did the 2+ hour drive to Winters

    Some things just need the new owner to dial in. Gauges worked then stopped working. WTF

    A number of parts FAILED from rockauto. Clutch master cylinder, fuel pump, starter. hoping the best for the rest.

    Relocated the fuel filer, trying to clean things up.

     

    20210429_190859_resized.jpg

     

    Modified the latch area, seems the new hood shocks might be to powerful. Looking into other options. I've used, used hood shocks and they work great, but wear out soon. new ones change hood alignment.

    20210430_161211_resized.jpg

     

    Next step Alignment shop. 

     

    Successful drive back from the Alignment shop. Got to many things going on to dial the last 5% of this build in. So I towed it to Robert Brock (the guy responsible for me getting my 1st 510 in 1989). He said he would gladly finish it off.
