Re: ace028's 72 2 door

Quick update, Troy has fitted the hood and fenders, and found doors that were not rusted out. They will be getting blasted and coated just like the rest of the car. The rear subframe has been modified. It will be sand blasted and powder coated along with the front flipped crossmember and control arm...

Thanks, I'm using a Sony A6000 with a 30mm sigma lens. Hope to attend again, or any other Datsun shows in the area.

Re: ace028's 72 2 door

It would be really cool if someone posted pics of what it use to look like before I got it. Would be cool to know the back story on it. Maybe it last drove 15 years ago?

Re: ace028's 72 2 door

Not much to update, however I did purchase these nice pillar vents. Once I go through all my parts, I will transfer the plastic inner on my 70's plastic vents to these as it has mounting provisions as you can see. I am thinking of polishing them, considering clear hard anodizing and painting the ins...

Re: ace028's 72 2 door

Today I went to check out the car, and go over what the next steps will be to get it to a nice roller. Not really much of updates from the last post, once I start getting some eye candy parts on it, it will be much more exciting. Anyways I thought I should update with a few pictures.

Re: A 510 30 years in planing.

I'm eager to see how the rack and pinion setup goes. When I saw that he was producing those I got excited, but then I saw they were sold out. Looking forward to your report on this. I have been watching your build for quite sometime!

Re: ace028's 72 2 door

I'm not sure where Troy got the pans from. I had to remove the cowl when I separated the wrecked front end from the car, it allowed me access to separate the factory spot welds.

Re: ace028's 72 2 door

Thanks Byron, I'm hoping Troy will get to some of the stuff soon, but I know he's busy, and my funding is mostly why its taking so long to make progress.
