Madness Posted February 19, 2009 Report Share Posted February 19, 2009 (edited) This is my 1971 Datsun 521 I bought the truck a while back... October I think. Well kinda traded it. My buddy troy found the truck on craigslist and traded a busted dirt bike for it. I liked it but it wasn't the truck for him. I tried to get a price out of him for about a week and finally he said he would trade to to me for a 620... if I could ever find one in decent condition. Sure enough we found on in a junk yard that still ran, troy drove it home. Not to long after I started collecting parts and doing a ton of research, that's how I found this site. More of what everyone wants... (You've probably already seen them) Old interior. Looked like it had been re done in the last 10 or 15 years. The bad I'm going to try to do everything myself on this truck. Recently I opened a Mini Truckin magazine and noticed that not too often do people with show trucks actually do the work to them. What few pictures I have of recent progress Interior progress Blank panel Chalked and sewn suede 1/2 scrim... The machine I'm using Finished panel Gauge cluster. Metal flake copper needles. Clear coated gray plastic. Black metal flake trim. Grey glass. This is the first time I've ever done interior and it probably wont be the first time it will be my first time :rolleyes: This is turning out to be a really fun project.
