So now that I've been here awhile, thought I should start one these too. Pics may be slow in coming but they'll be here sooner or later. There is a pic of what I started with under Datsun stories...didn't want to double post.

This is what I had as an occasional driver for about 2 years.

Thanks.....I actually drove it today for the first time since Feb 2009, very stoked. The hood is being painted and should be back end of this week(think the guy aint gonna charge me so I'll wait as long as needed. Got a little lighting issue....all lights work with the exception of the right turn signal...even the 4 way flashers work, so that will take some deducing but the only other thing I could deduce today was to have a beer.

Wow! That's looking nice! That makes me miss my old Coupe. I was just about to do a similar resto job on it when the sedan more-or-less fell into my lap. Nice work..

Thanks bonvo...not sure every thing is properly plugged in and was gonna start swaping out flasher units, have two that are marked as to where they on the car they came from but not sure if they were from the donor car or the build car........ :unsure:

Mark, good to see your still poking around here. Was way cool to drive her around today, would like to take it to work this week but may wait on the hood.

(edit) there is a place at the rear body panel where the harness grounds to the body...could be the culprit.
