well I took it to the severed ties show yesterday in phoenix, I didn't get any awards but I did have a few people come up to me asking about the 620 and some have datsuns. then today I proceeded to start removing the grill, bumper, headlights, radiator and clean up engine bay so I can get ready to prep it for primer and paint.

Gene weld in the radiator support.  The screws were temporary until welded.

 

The Severed Ties Shoe was fun.  It is an annual event in Phoenix.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

Went and bought some shelves with charlie69 today to use in my storage unit and go thru and separate all my 620 parts and box them up and then see what is extra so I can help someone else out who has a 620 and needs parts

Do you have any pics of how it was done or the truck it was bolted on to? In high school, I bought a wrecked 620, and I bought a complete core support with fenderwells and bolted it together near the firewall. I recall using a lot of 1/4" bolts. Anything else unique about the truck it was on?

This is probably the clip you bolted on in high school 2wheel-lee.  Truck had CA plates.

The original color of that truck was yellow, but after I primered it, it was later rattle-canned all white. I think the dash and gauges were also sprayed white. I can't remember what color the core/fenderwells were, or if I even primed them. 

 

The more I think about it, I think I left a few inches of the original fenderwell sticking out, and I just overlapped the new fenderwells. So hack...but hey, I was 16 and it was my first truck and I wanted to get it running asap. I learned so much about cars/trucks with that exercise. Like how to replace a timing cover when the Chiltons manual said - but not showed - to first remove the oil pump, and I had no idea what an oil pump looked like. Then what to do to discover I had the distributor rotor 180 degrees out.

This front end was done pretty nice as far as easy to remove.  There were either 3 or 4 bolts with nuts on the top of the inner fender well that held the front clip to the side of the firewall/ cowl area.  there were 3 bolts and nuts that went through the floor by the kick panels that held the front clip to the floor of the front of the cab.  The front of the clip was held on with the stock fro body mounts and bolts.  I think it was yellow originall but it had several coats of paint and I think the last was a dark blue.  All that is left of the truck is the cab the bed and the frame,  it is pretty hammered and rusty in spots.
