Terry's Project 240K

Recommended Posts

We picked up a wreck found in a paddock. Got a rusty door, gauges, front seat, tail light Panel, badges, rocker cover, door trims, grille and few other bits :) When I work out what I don't need i will put up for sale.

havent done a whole lot. Stripped a tail light garnish and started sanding it down ready to paint

But my mind is set on some widened steelies for the 240K. theres a place here in sa that widens them but its quite pricey. I wanna go for jdm look with as wide as i can go with stretched tyres.

Anyone had experience with widening steelies or know of any rims that will suit or the best offsets?

rather than go the typical 'chaser' rims like off a R31, thought the crappy ones on it would look cooler if they were widened

Damn nice wheels and cheap, im chasing some plastic window guides not sure if four doors have them.

Was going to post pic for reference, but cant find the only one i have :( was showing a mate to see if he could machine them up but dont know where i left it now.

fake wheels suck.

in adelaide you can go to extensive wheel repair or across the road there's adelaide wheel repair, both on south road (all of this is from memory)

so at the moment, my old man is helping me by cutting the rust out. once we have that completed i can get it to my house, and i can start the rest of the body work.

All the doors can be repaired except for the drivers rear. Its had the style line pushed in and cant repair it. So in need of another door!

My latest ideas after doing some research is to maybe try and sell the flat top carbs, and buy a set of Ztherapy round top su's. sounds like it will be better off in the long run. It will complete the setup when i rebuild the motor shortly.

Im also thinking i will prob get the bumpers straightened and re chromed.

next big job is cutting the rust out the wheel well, and replacing the whole section. i will put up pics

agreed, anything forward of windscreen will fit. This means guards and front bumper will fit.

Nothing from rear is the same.

Sweet yeah that's what I thought. Cheers guys.

Just seems I can get hold of coupe parts but can't find 4 door stuff for the life of me :(

Front bumper should but rear bumper won't, guards should fit too.

the rear bumper of my '77 4 door fitted fine onto my '73 coupe.

im definatly liking the rear end without the centre badge. ive got 3, so i might weld one up and just have the one badge like qwik

qwik now has the gtr rings on it, but still no centre badge....no cut and shut required, you do need re-drill some of the mounting holes, but no cutting or shutting...it isn't wider, the bumper bars are also interchangeable....

Another question for people. With import monster, how are alot of people are getting numbers of items from japan, are you getting them combined shipping? from differnt sellers? how?

because say for a badge i want, its going to cost me $80 to ship and its not worth it for one item
