Recommended Posts

Thanks.

when the whole bodywork is done, all welds will be smoothed out and have a glass finish. i got a weak spot for clean looking cars.

 

 

Me to! I really enjoyed my 510 wagon. It was still in great shape being original. Can't wait to get some paint on this new 510.

 

Good luck on the truck, ill be watching your thread.

next up for the truck are the wheel arches and the front lip, all steel. will post up once its finished, my plan is to have wheel arches like the 1970's skyline GTR, and a front lip something along the lines of the American ones i've seen. real nice. but i will make it to one piece steel and weld it to the original lower lip.

The wheelarches were a bit too bit and fat to my liking, so as you can see the blue marker marks, it will be thinned up a bit.

the front lower lip will also be pushed in a bit.

so updates on when its done.

some more shopiing, got a nice pimp accessory. a pioneer carrozeria sound panel (normally put on the ceiling of vans)

i'll be putting it on the back of the cab and facing the seats.

eight speakers!

only 140 Watts, not alot but i got another pair of tweeters for the front. hope its enough for the space of the single cab for some nice music for long journeys.

Thanks, just used a hammer and slowly did the curve bit by bit. took at least 2 days for each wheel. but i am getting them thinned up a bit. so watch out for the new update.

so whilst getting the fender and front lip modified, got a guy similar to my size to sit in and see the balance of weight in the truck.

wow man! 1uz in a 620! Always thought that would be such a sweet idea.

A good thing that theres so many of these in thailand, I brought my new tray/deck in from thailand, as here in New Zealand, most of our trucks were flatdeck.

i also heard there is production of new in Thailand but i haven't heard or seen them before. just seen the front left and right cheeks only.

yuh man, if you have a look at my project thread, has plenty of pictures.

yep i see it.

 

couldn't believe they still do new parts for 30 + yr old cars.

 

i was told by a Thai Datsun member once that it is such a hit that if anyone can locate a chassis, every single bit of the body parts can be found new.
