Love the fab work and the trailer. You should close out the front of that thing like an airstream.

The plan with the trailer is to enclose the front with fiberglass. Then bag it. So that it can be towed smoothly, but be slammed at a meet. I just need to finish the axle then I'll be able to tow it to Pare Composites for the fiberglass work.

You should put a shortened up 510 nose on it using the front doors and a stock windshield,then move the B pillar back and delete the rear's doors. Then you could build a storage box under the shortened hood.

 

Here is a cool VW trailer,

Wow that VW is sweet. Had many ideas with this 510 wagon trailer. Now i think i'm going to keep it simple. It has been 14 + years of towing it around from new house to new house.

Gotcha covered. Picked this 720 up for parts back in the day and cut the back off for this trailer. However decide it was to heavy, and alot of modding to get ready. So, i recycled it.

You did say your wife is hot, so sure, we can make that happen.

We wouldn't have as much time to tinker with Dimes if business was booming. Looks like things are taking off. My phone just started ringing for house painting jobs.

 

I think the funnest part of working on Datsun is the finished product.

We figured we couldn't finish this one super fast but we could chip away at it.

Doors have been cherry for a while, finished gutting them the other day. Then had our helper Sand blast the jambs and frames. Final sand and ready for paint.

 

Rolled a fresh coat of white paint in the booth so we can see what we are doing, hung some doors and BAM

Your threads are my absolute favorite to read. I feel like I could learn to do bodywork just by reading them. Hope to find a goon as a project someday. Keep up the amazing work man.
