The story goes we started this goon for a friend. He purchased it as a project, (mostly a shell). Not a lot of parts bolted to the body, so putting it together would be a treasure hunt. And expensive once new parts were purchased. Once the engine bay was blasted, shaved, and painted, it was determined that this would be a huge project for the owner.
With help from Atom we picked up and traded a complete running goon. No pretty engine bay but our friend could drive this goon now.

Wow, Victory and I own a goon with a nice painted engine bay. We have parted out many goons mostly wrecked, so parts should not be a problem. With no time and to many projects ahead of this car, it got stored and went up for sale. Funny no buyers. Huh who would of thought.

While working with a 510er from Aussie we imported a factory right hand drive kit, non SSS. So we thought RHD goon.
We have some trainees at the shop and figured we would try to put together a RHD, shaved, SR20NA S14 goon, for Canby. 5 months no problem.

Here are some pics

Couldn't do it without helping hands. The wife Victory is a huge help keeps the Vodka and cranberry flowing, not to mention she just stripped and sanded this goon for 2 days straight

Now with Atom and Phil. We are moving Datsuns. I had my uncle come out and blast for a half day (nice)
But there are days like yesterday where i was working on this thing til 1:30am

Thanks to everybody your comments, it keeps us motivated

There's no way they are human. His wife likes and works on the cars and they do insane work. Women like that don't exist anymore. They've got to be robots or aliens...

Naw...they exist... Mine has a love/hate relationship with it, she doesnt like the look of the cars @ all, but loves getting involved in the tear down & build up.. she even helped me build a speaker box skeleton =)

I think that the reason we get soo much done is that we have no tv and limited internet access, we live in the country, and we have Atom and Phil now helping sometimes too.

Here's cheers to good work! I too am amazed that your wife is a huge help. It's all my wife can do to "tolerate" what I do with cars.

You said-"She kept the drinks flowing" (well-known as the painter's best fuel!)
AND THEN "she stripped'!!!?? - and then "she sanded? '

Wait, this isn't REALLY your life, is it? This has GOT to be some kind of Fantasy!


-Sweet goon. Sanding DP90 sucks, though, doesn't it! Do you adhere to the "paint within 24 hrs" rule with DP?

(pssst! I have a wagon shell, don't tell anyone!) I've got a little "project overload" situation here, it's crazy, but MAN, I'm lovin' it!

Unbelievable. A true resurrection. Amazing work.

No TV + 510 passion = free thinking mind= imagination and productivity= really cool 510's. Awesomeness in an era of watered down "reality" BS. Keepin' it so real, Ratsun style.

Keep up the righteousness.

Usually when i sandblast an engine bay and take care of the mud work, i use the dp90 as my filler primer. Blast 2 heavy coats let dry 12 - 24 hours and light sanding with 600 wet, blast a sealer coat of dp90 thinned, then spray my base or single stage at the time.

While we have the torch out I decided to burn off some bondo, under the taillight. This goon had very little bondo. Also very little rust.
