The truck is a convertible and will stay a convertible.  He is building a removable hard top for Shade from the AZ sun.  He is using this truck as a daily driver and with a shaved head it is cooking him.
 
More progress

If you have not noticed on the windshield is AZ Dime Petitioner sticker.  AZ dimes is a Chevy S10 club here in AZ.  Shawn is the first foreign truck running with them.  Kind of a square peg in a round hole!!!  ROFLMAO

Shawn Came over today and did some work for me on my 520.
 
His 521 also received some love, OEM NOS Nissan back glass and new rubber seal.  I also hooked him up with a repalcement speedo, a better set of 720 oil pressure and volt  gages, and a 720 1 piece drive line.

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!"

Plan a trip down here Loren!  I am sure he would be more than happy to take you for a ride.  I am trying to get him to bring his truck to Fontana CA for our SWDP Barbecue on August 12th.

 

He is afraid of getting it impounded in CA.  I do not blame him.  I 1973 I lost a 1950 Sudebaker Champion to the West Covina County Sheriffs.  Impound and towing came to over $4400 and in the early seventies that was a lot of cash for a 16 year old to cough up.

Shawn came by a few weeks back and he installed a set of bucket seats I had from a Rodeo.  I did not take any pictures that day.

I hope you can fix these pics as well someday. I would love to see what he has done on the interior and under the hood.

Thanks Charlie..... I wanted to see how you guys made that top. What does the removable top weigh.... do you have to be a gorilla to get that off?
