Gene, I want to express how sorry I am that you're facing such difficult medical challenges. I know how tough it is & how it affects all parts of life. I'm also sorry to hear you have decided to liquidate your Datsun stash. That's heartbreaking but a very brave decision. I trust you are doing what's best for your life at the moment. I will keep my eyes out for any 520/521 stuff you may post in the future. I am honored to have learned from your advice on my little truck. Ratsun is a strong community & you're a positive member who's made a ton of contributions & still has a lot to contribute. Hang in there my friend & have faith. My prayers are with you. Thank you for your sacrifice(s).

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:

Every time you tell me tht you buy another Datsun !   :thumbup:

 

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:
