  1. sorry i totally abandoned this thread lol. heres some current pics of the car, replaced the whole interior new rear hatch new wheels (Work Equip 01 1pice 14"s) engine pulled and bay cleaned / welded up/ painted. passenger floor cut out and replaced. entire body stripped to bare metal, some body work /patching etc. body temporarily painted, bed liner in the wheel wells. all in one summer while working full time! phew!! glad thats over with. and heres my other thread for the car http://nwdatsuns.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=331 BOOM! still think its a parts car guys??
  2. probably not this year i dont think i can put two cars on insurance, but next year for sure,... unless you can get a trailer =) but you will def see it soon. possibly 2 weeks? for sure in a month. anyway, turns out floor pans are not super expensive, ima grab a passenger side for now, I think i can save the driver side. plus i think i figured out why someone cut that hole in my dash, i lost the picture but i found someone who put a gague cluster right above the glovebox.
  3. its.... not great. i still havnt pulled the seats to take a closer look, but thats going to be the biggest chunk of rust removal ill have to do.
  4. those were all my thoughts exactly, in that order... except the nutralized by water part, i didnt know that...
  5. so, im at school and i dont have many tools with me, unfortunately. i also dont have much free time, but im getting done what i can. The whole car was covered with super nasty thick maroon paint that looks like it was burnt because its all bubbly and weird, luckily the guy who had it before me got a pretty serious amount of it off the roof, hood, and front fenders. but theirs still a lot to go. so ive been using a paint scraper, this is a terrible picture, there is no rust on the rear quarter except for a little on the wheel arches, its all smooth but the pain makes it look bad.
  6. it would appear so. ill find one, i need to look for a junk yard here in corvallis.
  7. it looks worse than it is, not by much, but im not too worried about it, its not much worse off than my 521 was. hopefully ill get a chance to tear into it today and get a better assesment.
  8. we'll see, itl probably get some more stuff done to it before it goes up for sale. but yes, new Datsun is in the works =)
  9. Snagged a 1972 S30 for $900 today!! Ive been keeping my eyes out for a while and i finally pounced on one! The Bad quite a bit of rust... =( nothing beyond fixing tho. cracked windshield, (but im so used to my 521's nasty old cracked, chipped, delaminated windshield that 1 crack doesnt bother me for the time being) interior is..... not.... in the best condition rubber is mostly going to need replacing clutch is on its way out smokes a little. The Good round top SUs EL distributor runs/ drives pretty decently transmssion seems pretty solid wiring seems surprisingly intact and ori
  10. oh...my.... gosh... i love this that so much!
  11. So, working at a restaurant in a college town has its ups and downs. On the one hand, I hardly get any work at all during spring break. On the other hand, 5 day weekend!!! Sorry for the huge dump of a post but its been a HUGE project packed into just a few days. DAY 1 so instead of having fun I decided to do some battle with the Datsun owner’s worst enemy…. Rust. First day of the break I attacked the floorboards, moisture is leaking in from somewhere (probably windshield gasket, that’s getting changed pretty soon hopefully) =( So I stripped the interior and grabbed a sanding wheel for my an
  12. Im at school in corvallis and i dont have the time/space/money/weather to do anything, so shes been sitting. luckily ive had a covered parking spot for the last month or so to get things all dried out. that said, heres a list of whats going to happen over the spring/summer; Floor pans need some lovin and a dash of plasti-dip New carpet New windshield (Laecaon already found one for me:D ) and gasket Paint and body work Interior business (door cards, dash cap, stereo, etc. Hopefully do a wire delete and batery re-location to the cab. Clean up the engine bay. And ofcourse some sort of crazy L20
