I bought this 1971, 2dr about 6 years ago. It's been slow going due to raising a family and working full time.

 

About the car... The good- When i got it, it it was a rust free driver w/ 2ltr. The bad- it was hit in the front & rear and needed multiple panels replaced.

 

Some pics-

+10 internets for actually replacing the tail light panel the correct way.

Thanks, Skib!  I've been doing this body & paint stuff for a long time...

 

I cut the Q/P tops and pulled them in 1/8" to even the decklid gaps..

Fantastic.  Love the blanked out license plate.

 

This is one thread I will follow closely.

 

Keep the updates coming.

 

I have the wagon you built.


Also, I've determined, I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.
As I'm sure a lot of the old school datsun guys are.



Enjoy the Ride!

Where did the flares come from? Or handmade? Never seen any like that...


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

I started with cutting up 4 fender flares from a 1st gen Dakota. By the time i was done i had made a large portion of them.
