Hi Pedro. Looks as good as most of these projects on here if not even better. Does seem to be pretty straight from the pics you’ve shown. Lotsa luck! Keep

@ Konrad, thanks bud (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

@ Dion, yeah the body is pretty straight just one issue with a small accident on the left front headlight and a dented left door. At least those will be easy fixes. I'm planning on taking the whole car apart in about two weeks. Only then will I be able to know if there is any major rust repair.

@ Shadowfax, saludos tocayo! jajajaja (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

@ Fatboy007, I will man, hopefully soon I can show you guys some progress (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) And we are neighbors jajaja (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sunglasses.gif)

Thanks guys!

Welcome! Original or not, I lean towards getting it on the road again.


Hopefully soon I can get it back on the road, and by original what I mean is not modifying it with a bigger engine and fender flares. My friend got a set of fiberglass fender flares that he gave me with the car and was wanting to do something like this, unless everyone thinks it's a really stupid idea (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

LOL same here, but I love this little truck and I know exactly what you mean about loading motorcycles (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

That is such a beautiful car Rob (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif) I was looking for one of those but the 914 popped up and I got it instead. After I finish the 914 I'll look for another 240Z

In fact I brought the 914 home yesterday and had to put the Datsun 620 out in the street (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) Why can't my wife just give up her parking spot in the garage?

After I got it home I started tearing into it and removed the fuel tank along with other pieces in there. I was surprised that the fuel tank is in such good condition. Even inside it was really nice and clean.

Some pictures of the disassembly process. I built the stand from some pictures and plans I saw on another members thread and I must say it's pretty awesome. Working on the car like this has been a pleasure and by back isn't all sore (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Here with the help of some friends we got it up onto the stand.

Someone had asked for pictures of the rockers, well here is the right side and it was in good condition so I am happy about that. The left side is mostly the same.

This past weekend I finished taking the car apart and then cleaned it up a bit. Everything came off fairly easily but I need to buy the socket to remove my front ball joints. Body work to start soon (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
