My new 240k Hardtop

Recommended Posts


Thanks for the pics swarf, I forgot my camera so didn't get any:(

I was only near my car for about 10 mins for the whole day so you would have been lucky to catch me. I spent most of the morning looking at the cars and I went for a walk up the beach with some friends after lunch. I walked past your 31 a few times but you had heaps of people looking at it so i didn't interrupt, it seemed to be quite popular!.

I might go to stadium drift at Tailem bend on march 12 but i'm not %100 sure yet, if i go i will take the datsun so if your there come over for a chat.

Adrian, i took the front GL badge off because i took the mesh out of the grill to clean it. after wearing out 2 tooth brushes they came up pretty well but when i sat the badge back in there it looked crap with half the blue paint missing so i left it off for the show.

I actually don't mind the look of it with out the badge.

ah, that would have been it then!

yeah i had a fair few people asking questions about the car, hopefully it will sell soon haha.

also, i liked the grill without the badge. it made it look nice and clean.

I thought Your Mesh looked Fantastic,

And i can understand why you wouldn't put a Bodge old badge back on to it,

so it does look better without it!

It will probably grow on me without the badge no doubt

It definitely wasn't mine but It's good to hear that there's another one around and it's being driven, hopefully the owner joins up here and posts pics and info for us.

When I talked to you last I was going to just respray the engine bay but after taking out the LPG it left holes in the body work that needed fixing and I found some rust in the bootlid under the trim so I've decided to strip the whole car and give it a ground up rotisserie rebuild.

very nice! good to see that you're looking after it like it should be.

hope that lovely interior is tucked away where it can't be damaged! any plans for engine or suspension upgrades whilst the rebuild is occurring?

I spotted this tidy looking 240k in a wreaking yard car park this morning. the last time a spotted it was a couple of years ago when it passed me on the road and it sounded like it was turbo, anyone on here the owner?

I think it may have been for sale a couple of years ago too?

Flared guards just don't do it for me, removes everything that's cool about Kenmeri styling...go with rad neggie camber, tuck the rear wheels under and cruise...tough.

Never seen that 4-door either, there's not many around I haven't seen, especially these days.

Anyways, I thread-jack.

:stupid:

Yeah see I love the flared guards, personal taste huh. :)

Oh, of course, you're right...I just think, aside form erasing the styling cues around the rear arch, it's a shame it destroys the bodywork too, as it's hard to reverse if you're not a fan. How many Capri owners are regretting cutting out the 'hockey stick' and flaring their guards? Now that original un-molested cars are getting $30k+, just about all of them.

Blue on blue was the coolest colour scheme on the planet too, IMO. :D However, just looking at your build thread it's hard to believe anything you end up with is going to look anything but brilliant Adam...well done man.

Thanks mate, I certianly hope so! Yeah I head what you're saying, once you cut, it's cut. But then anything can be fixed. Blue on blue haha, you're a classic man hey! It's not my cup of tea but I hear you.

I'm dead keen to see some more pictures of Laggy6's car. Looks like the lights etc are in from his avatar.
