But i must declare an interest its a Family run business.

regardless where you take your parts make sure they are clean the cleaner you supply them the better the job will be without a doubt.

Lovely restoration, but I have one gripe. You MUST make those Watanabes work :P

Hahahaha

unfortunately they belong to someone else's 240K that's getting work in the same shop.

Flairs would look pretty epic with those wheels though.

I have some 16x7 Watanabe RS-8's that will probably end up on it....

Looking very nice. Have said it before, these things look best in silver. Brings back memories of my restoration.

Word of caution: Take your time to ensure you get the result. And besides, when you own a SSS Coupe, every day is Datsun Day :lol:

Good luck :thumbsup:

Wow, how's that for a long time between updates.

I actually forgot my password and had to wait till the form fixed its email out system before I could reset it.
I realise now that the Car has actually done HEAPS since the last post here, Including South Australia Twice!

The car has had a few updates since the last post, Still as slow as a wet blanket but it has gained a third pedal and 5 forward gears rather than the 3 it left the factory with.

Now lowered running HR31 floating front brakes, 2-inch stainless exhaust, and a 38DGAS weber carb.
Plenty more in the pipeline like new wheels but currently working on one of the other projects at the moment.

Yeah I don't mind them at all, but it's not the final look I want at the moment.

I purchased some Enkei Compe wheels but they are too aggressive in the front so will have to pass them onto my mate for his 240Z

The Datsun is looking good. I never used to like BBS wheels but they've grown a lot on me lately.
