Hey a little about me and what I am planning for my wagon.
I live in "sunny" Victoria B.C. and bought my first Datsun in September '09. This is my first car period for that matter.
It is Canadian Racing Beige and has the heart of a lion. It is an automatic which isn't great but leads me to believe it hasn't been treated too roughly in it's life.
The biggest issue was the Steering box. Thanks to Pumpkn210 that has been resolved.
I have changed the oil and spark plugs. The plugs were in hindsight fine but I wanted new ones anyways just to be sure.
A new stereo is in. Very cool. No more C.D.'s! All digital.
I want to put down some sound dampening material for obvious reasons and I really want to convert my rear drums to disks. For this I am looking for a friendly garage in an effort to keep costs down.
I would like to replace the bushings throughout to help with ride comfort.
The front seats may get swapped out for a couple from a friends '78 280. If possible I would like the rears reupholstered to match.
Body rust and overall outward appearance are low on my list as I like the idea of a sleeper, but someday... yeah someday I would love it to be crispy clean.
I don't have a garage. I park on the street. I have almost no wrenching knowledge but am enjoying my little money pit and plan to stick with it.
