  1. I have entered skyline nats (track days not show n shine) in my jzx100 chaser, can't miss it has a massive wing, so come say hi if you see me. Also have a little hobby workshop out s.e suburbs (Ferntree gully) vic that once the weather warms up a little I will put on a bbq or something for Vic K guys.
  2. Pretty much all of the coils ahha Led's are just white ones, mixed types was too long ago to remember now. I am in s.e suburbs. We should arrange a VIC meet at some stage, can imagine most people will not be there in thier K's but never the less.
  3. So and steady progress.. current state of this project, I was unhappy with some of the repair work when I first started learning to weld so went back over it. Hoping to have it on the road by end of the year... (HA!) maybe
  4. Yeh currently working on a few different options for suspension forback of the K, need the car on the road so I can do some development work to see if the bright ideas will pay off. Charlie is my buddy, might take you up on that offer in the early weeks of Jan! I hate new paint on old cars too, but after looking threw pics of these cars in Japan, some new colours work. I am not keen on painting the original green that is in the engine bay, and the current green on all the panels looks good but Im not a fan of green, considering a light gun metal gray, with dark gun metal grille and tail light garnish.
  5. No holes or bad rust in the boot so ground whole boot back to bare metal and POR15'd the boot Will build a false mdf floor across the boot floor way later Anyway enough of that crap Under floor pan, where alot of dattos rust Started paint scraping and BOOM new car underneath Must have been a very good paint protection! Random Pic O yeh I bought a cage too and mocked it up in car Has been lots of datsun parts hunting adventures but will update that and the progress on doors at a later stage! Plan is to go hard across the Xmas holidays.. Still have no idea what color to paint the car... Will take suggestions? Anyone in melbourne want to catch up one day over the xmas holidays I will be at the shop in ferntree gully the whole time working on the Datsun.
  6. Time to learn to weld.. So I have borrowed Jakes welder thanks buddy.. I would like to say I have never welded before and I am sure that is obvious to anyone who has in the below pics, but meh gotta learn somewhere. Process goes Sanded back and cut out any questionable bits Make up patch panel Tack Weld in (I didnt know what I w) Grind back to flat figure out what holes if any need more By far the worst sections of rust on this car have been behind rear wheels in boot arches.. Dont think I have any pics of the inner skin holes but you get the idea with where the fresh metal is.. Making this shaped patch panels took sooo lonng all curved and cut to perfection.. This pic was mid way through welding in. Was also a number of pin holes to fill with weld to as shown here with a half way through pic Grinded it back Then did the 3 stage por15 rust prevention process and cut up and started to instal rear outter skin patch panel
  7. Guards are repairable with enough work, as is front drivers door but... passenger door had someone hit it pretty hard in a car park, and has been somewhat pushed back out but would be better of getting a resonably straigh door and just repairing the rust as i am not confident enough to make up a whole new door skin.. So anything would be a better base for passenger door! I dont have any spares aside from auto gearbox and associated bits and a rear taillight garnish, boot and a brand new rear passenger skin from nissan
  8. Hey guys just another wanted to buy in a sea of them.. I am chasing Front guards Front doors for a 4dr passenger side front eyebrow rear bumper & and or rear reflectors Any help would be great s.e subs of vic but willing to travel around.
  9. Speaking of lights.... which will be controversial... New number plate bolt/lights Engine dress up Friend also got back from Japan and picked up a ken & mary sticker for me. One of many awesome presents he bought back for me, although this is the only datsun specific. Also had a ebay care package arrive with a tonne of white led's as I could not see the damn dash cluster at night. Another package from Jesse turned up today, so will have more silly purchase updates in coming days.
  10. So I have been quiet on the datsun updates, as most of the work of late has been pull bits and pieces of the car and starting on exploring the rust situation, and to be honest its not that bad compared to most 240k's. Last week I received a host of goodies I had ordered from Streeter Mags/ new bible came with mini ken & mary sticker's Pair of badges Green sanyo fan! cause summer is coming! It is 24v so need to get a convertor, but willl be totally worthwhile. Although I am considering selling as there is little room for it in the k. purple spinning strobe light for the parcel shelf in action on charlies jzx71 very bright! Tail lights before a clean/polish Tail light in spare garnish after a polish Difference between aus and jap MUCH BETTER!
  11. I am chasing a front passenger side door for this too?!?! As well as potentially pretty decent front guards, providing they are not as big $ as I expect them to be
  12. Hello, I have been looking for a cost effective way of lowering my yonmeri to a considerably low height, coilover kits I have found in japan demand an awful lot of $ 3k= from what I can tell.. I know r30/31 coilovers can be retrofitted to the front, but what have people done with the rear? even the lowered spring options for the rear dont seem to go to a reasonably low (tucking the rear tyre would be perfect for the look I am after) I could not see the sense in spending anymore than 2k as a total budget for brand new fully adjustable coilovers. So whats my best options?? Any help be very much appreciated!
  13. Not too much has happened, progress slowed due to being busy elsewhere atm. Family ties.. Have pulled the front guards off to make a start the hunt to rust Rain guards arrived from japan On Before After a very quick polish Quick walkaround video, headers into one muffler which is just below passenger seat. (Its temp until I get proper exhuast setup.) Drive by
  14. Tuesday night, ripped the old motor/auto box out. Wednesday night, rolled the car outside to degrease high pressure etc. Before: After hours of cleaning/polishing little bit of painting. (big thanks to Harley for all the polishing magic!) Thursday Night put the engine back together Then in the car.. Car doesnt kick over yet, got to 2:30am and gave up (needless to say work is a struggle today) low spark appears to be the problem, but fresh minds this afternoon/weekend will be able to diagnos it a bit better. Big tanks to the boys which came down and lent a hand over the last few nights!
  15. So pulled the cover off the motor in the green car yeh..... I mean I knew head gasket was gone but damn! Gave it a good clean up ready for paint. So the motor out of the purple one looking like this now With help from the parts on this shelf Replaced Front & Rear Seals Water pump hoses most gaskets plugs filters New clutch master Which means only one thing the MT pedals are in Got bored so cleaned up super faded window surrounds, with a basic job till I figure out what is going to happen to the body. I lost custody of the purple car, so it has gone to hang out with its other owner and brother (c210 coupe) Which has free'd up some room again. Also sold the Mazda on Friday which has cleared up more space too. A pair of these pop'd up for a good price and local friend of a friend So after a trial fit on saturday these were purchased... They are meant to be a rear pair (15x9 -3 Work Equip 01) but they didnt quiet fit So yesterday the guard roller came out and I got the resident guard roller onto the job. BOOM Will rip motor out of green one in coming weeks, and get the purple car motor/box in there
