#1531160 Shitty fuckin' day for my 521

Posted by Angela on Today, 12:26 PM

For poor you have a way of getting and keeping your Datsuns in showroom condition. Members should take lessons from you Angela.

Haha, thanks...that's funny.

 

Mike, remember what you told me a few moons ago...

 

"looks good from from 20 feet away at 20 mph"...(or something close to that anyway). My cars are eons away from showroom condition...especially when you remember my wagon's top is rolled on paint that chips off every year & needs repainting. I guess the interior is close to showroom now that it's been tastefully redone.

 

My truck is a hot little mess but it's an original hot little mess for the most part & I love it  :hug:

 

Just looks decent in pictures I guess.

If your not looking to learn to paint and want the color a little closer...
Another way is take the paint code to an auto paint stores, some have the ability to make a rattle can in the exact color, even with the clear mixed in if you wanted....
Either way what you did looks pretty good...

 

I forgot about that Crash...thx for the reminder. I actually am interested in learning to properly paint a car (just not right now) since I used to do a bunch of airbrushing & went to art school & stuff  :geek: . I'd like to transfer my skills from the canvas to metal someday.

I would put the L20b in the one you drive the most, since I am a truck guy I say the truck needs the most power, but you may drive the wagon more.

 

Yeah, the wagon is my 1st love so she will get the goods  :console:

Hey, hey, hey there now...I only have 2! AND...if I remember right, YOU kind of coaxed me closer to the ledge & told me to go for it so uh, there ya go.

 

Guilty as charged & not regretting any of it :devil:

Angela buy a 25.00 spray gun go tofinish masters and have them match it up and re do it. It will be fun and look better in the long run. 

 

I'll look into that once I recuperate from my shopping spree at Eagle Rock. I'm working on rebuilding that L20b I got for free, too so priorities are shifting a bit. This is a temporary fix for now Tanker. I'm planning to pull the L16 with A87 peanut head & 5 speed out of my wagon & put it in the 521, then put the rebuilt L20b with another, A87 peanut head & fresh 5 speed in the wagon. Baby steps but FUN! I wish I could do nothing but Datsun stuff 24/7.

Sorry Angela the owner of the truck doesn't want to sell it or part it , his dad was the original owner and has a lot of sentimental value .

It's all good Bopper. Thank you for trying. I just picked up a tailgate at Eagle Rock this past weekend. Painted it today. It'll all work out.

 

Did you go to the meet?

Bought this tailgate from Gene at the Eagle Rock meet this past weekend. It was primered but today I rattlecanned it with some baby blue (not an exact match but close enough) & then brushed on some offwhite paint for the lettering. 

 

I just need to figure out how to get the old tailgate off (plan to make a bench out of it  :thumbup: ) so, any advice would be appreciated. I got a set of new hinges because the driver's side hinge looks bent. I don't think it's gonna be easy to hammer that pin out. I assume the new hinges must be welded on? Old hinges cut off?  :confused:

#1530610 11th ANNUAL NOV 19TH 2017 DATSUN NIPPON CARSHOW/SWAPMEET!! -Eagle Roc...

Posted by Angela on 20 November 2017 - 09:32 PM

This was absolutely the best meet I’ve been to over the last 5 years or so coming to Eagle Rock. Tons of people, tons of great parts, really nice cars, too. So many great folks in the Datsun community...it really went by fast! It was almost a blur...tons of parts shopping, haggling, side conversations, loading bought parts in my truck, then going out & doing another lap around to see what I might’ve missed, then repeating the whole thing over again. Jose, you are a good man, your wife & family are truly lovely & generous (thanks again for the gratis tacos). I’ll be praying for your mother in law to feel better soon. Sorry she had to sit this one out...hopefully next time. Thank you to everyone who came out from locales near & far to make this Datsun meet a real community gathering! Thanks also for the vendors who hoard the goodies, store the goodies, load, drive, unload, haggle, make deals, reload, & drive back year after year to help us all keep our projects going & dimes on the road.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

Uh...whahhh...Mmmm...

Thx guys. Appreciate the input (as always) but I'm now even happier that I kept it simple using a very basic Dremel & cutting disk. It cut it in about 10-15min each side...the other half hour was spent filing & picking burs/thorns out of my clothes from kneeling in the field. Basic tools for a basic mind perhaps...but it worked & the seatback doesn't even touch the rear of the cab wall. It's just a slight angle that feels more comfortable😝
