Here was a very nice example of a Datsun 510 2 door, that just ended badly.

 

We are working to bring it back

If you retained the original engine compartment "ID tag" then I would keep the color denoted on the factory tag.  It may not be gorgeous, or originally yellow, but in the long run it will be at least near authentic.  Nissan is not making 510s any more and the Jay Leno effect is setting in.

Damn, you weren't kidding.

 

That is impressive all the way around, from the damage to the repair.

 

Nice work. :cool:

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!"

Sad to see a smashed 510 but good to see someone with the talent to piece it back together like this. Good luck on it.
