You can pick up replica tags from Japan, Nissan ones of course though, not Datsun. I'm going to try and get some when we're over there next year. I can grab a few if you're interested.

So your the one who beat me with the same bid. :(

I wanted it for the badge, only bit I need for my sedan. If you wanna sell the badge, let me know, keen as a beaver near a wood plantation.

That would be mad! I'll actually be up from Brisbane in Montville in August 10-12 so I could even drive somewhere on the Sunshine coast and pick it up?

I decided i had to make start on some smaller stuff. Mirrors seemed the easiest to start with.

These ones came with guards i got from japan and i have a few other sets on the way in a container, will restore them and keep as spares. As expected these where pretty rusty and plenty of wd40 was used haha.

The mirros where painted with a spray can and it was falling off so i pulled them apart and put them through the sand blasting cabinet, still need to fix a few smalll dents but the mirrors and glass are pretty good condition.

Down side was the rod that holds them to the base was pretty much gone. I broke one in half and the other one broke on the eye. I had no other option apart from make new ones.

Some nice progress.

Hey so I was cleaning up on the weekend and found those tags you were after, the original Datsun tags. I have them spare from my old 240K that was scrapped. Only thing is the numbers wont match..
