I am very new here, made a few random posts but definately new.
My name is Troy, I am 35 and from Perth. My first car was a mustard colored 4door 180b, had it back in 1992 or so. How i loved her before I lost my license (young stupid behavior) and let my step father use it as a company car, never to return.
Being a dodgey punk/bandguy type, I am only just getting my license back now, and have a deposit on a 1970 1200 coupe I am picking up in April. His name is Miles and he is in pretty good condition!
I am an I.T guy (Unix/Linux/Windows Server admin) but really want to learn about fixing up my car and getting it to some stage of 'awesomeness', which to me means cutting out the rust, replacing it with new metal, and a mildly worked a12 with some retro style (watanabe? hotwires? simmonds?) 14's. Thanks to years of playing in hardcore and grindcore bands, the DIY thing is really important to me, would rather learn how to do something than pay someone else to do it (if possible)
I am sure I will be asking a lot of questions, some stupid so please be patient, I might fix your computer for you
Everyone on this forum has been awesome, the Datsun community seems really tight knit and collaborative. Right up my alley
