  1. Newest video is up. Getting the car prepped for more work as I move forward. .
  2. Little bit of progress made today, removed a large chunk of the rocker panel to check the inner panel, not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Definitely going to need some replacements
  3. While this project has largely sat for the past 4 months I have not given up hope. I should have another couple videos produced in the next few weeks to a month hopefully, work has started again. Check out the passenger's side rust! THe bondo was all from the passenger's foot well underneath a wicked awesome patch panel sealed with duct tape That hole is after the bondo was removed, The back also had a good chunk of metal missing at the corner. Ohh and look at that bondo depth on the rear arch.
  4. Yenpit, The car came with most of the parts needed, rocker panels, and rear fenders, I supplemented with floordboards with someone one from this community that they make (I have been happy with them) and additional panels from Futofab. I have already done the driver's side (I added a link to the first post). I just wondered if I could have done this a bit more intelligently and taken all the metal out at once which would save me quite a bit of time. Taken from my build thread.

  5. 1972 Datsun 510, I edited the original post as well
  6. OK I am now moving to the passengers side of my 1972 Datsun 510. I have already done the drivers side just wondering if maybe there is a Better way to get this stuff done - The floorboards are shot - The inner rocker has some spots that are going to have to be replaced including the area around the seatbelt mount - The rocker panel has to be replaced Should I just brace it and replace all at the same time, or a specific order. Thanks for the advice. here is my build thread. *Edited to include the car information*
  7. It is a vinyl top, with a glass rear window
  8. The Figaro is my wife's car. She loves that thing and drives it every day. We put 500 miles on it getting to and from the show, top speed was about 60-65mph. She was floored at winning the award.
  9. We are going! The wife and I. To anyone that will be traveling through Vegas we are caravanning as a group from the Hoover Dam Friday morning hit mebup here if interested in Caravanning
  10. Looks good dude can't wait to read more about it
  11. Sorry if this has already been done, but we all have the "go to" Youtube channels, would love to see what yours are. I will start with some of the easy ones and the ones that I would suggest you subscribe to. If you check out only one Soup is one of the best channels on youtube his video editing is amazing.

  12. In the next part of my work on the 510 I replace the lower and outer portion of the inner rear wheel arch, replace some of the trunk floorboard, and weld in the trunk drop panel. Not a bad amount of work. I am still working through the settings on the welder, but it is going well. Let me know what you think. .
  13. I love the porsche, but I came on board with the Z and love it, glad you are pretty much there with it. Love the new paint booth. I am really excited for the Alfa
  14. Finally got some more work done. I just got the video done as well. I removed the inner and outer fender arch from the car. I then fruitlessly tried to remake the arch several different times by different methods before giving up. As Thomas A. Edison is quoted as saying: 'I have not failed. I've just found 10000 ways that won't work."
  15. Thanks man. yeah I am slowly moving on this thing. Work really gets in the way of working on the 510. 😄
