    Where to go with this rusthole

    Finally getting back into this bad boy. I had some life $^!# slow me down plus my bronco needed some love.... I've basically tuned up on side and about ready to install the rocker. Im replacing some pitted metal on the front and rear jamb before i get there tho. Just need my buddys shrinker/stretcher so I can form these jamb pieces, weld em in and ill put the rocker on! In terms of flow.... Do most people suggest working one side of the car at a time or one area. Like, should I fibish this rocker and door jamb area then goto the other side and repeat, or should I continue back and tackle the rear quarter. Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Stripped paint doors to see the true condition.

    Hey guys, door has been squared away a while back now. I got this fender plus 2 more for free from a local datsun guy all need some love but this guy has a sweet dent. Wher does a guy start to try and straighten this out? The other fender for passenger side has bad rust up near the a pillar a and down low. This guy would be best to save. I guess worst case, I could cut and replace from the other fender Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Where to go with this rusthole

    I spoke with dispeyon a while back. Guys got talent for sure. In terms of the middle piece at the front that I've cut off I'm just gunna form a sheet metal patch minus the holes. The challenge I have in my mind is recreation of that lower sill/pinch weld area. Part of me wants to forgo the triple deal and just use a thicker guage under the seatbelt bolt hole and then tie the already heavier guage tabco rockers into er. Either way, I think it will be stronger. I generally don't make things less than before ha Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Where to go with this rusthole

    Been awhile since I've posted about the "rust hole" I've finished the front frame rebuild and re attached the inner fenders Nad bow I move back onto the rockers and completing the floors. Which brings me to this, inner rocker around what I assume is the seatbelt bracket is toast but only. On the bottom, should I just cut off the rot on the bottom in the picture and rebuild with some hand made pieces. It appears there's about three layers total here. Inner, outer and then dog leg. Front is a similar situation. It's almost overwhelming but that's cuz I'm new i guess ha. Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Possible fresh chassis for build. Thoughts

    Turns out his car faces the same issue haha. Out of province inspection required. Oh well, ill keep browsing. And go stare at mine this afternoon. Contemplate the plan of attack. Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
  7. Hey guys the whole inspection thing has pumped the brakes on my progress. I've found a local chassis, clean reggy decent shape. Actually better than mine in some spots and worse in others haha, there's a balance. Anyhow, what's the difference chassis wide between my 71 240(and all attaching parts) vs a 74 260. When the car is complete will there be visual differences outside. All my badging is new and 240z so I am kinda concerned ill have issues ahead. Will my 71 dash board and windshield fit hood rear deck kid etc. Thanks EH Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    I've hit a wall..... Vehicle inspection

    My buddy Ray went to the last meet. Stock 71 240 in silver. And I bought a windshiled off a member in north van, gold z... I however haven't made it out yet. I'll probably come with Ray to the next meet up. I'll check out Facebook tommorow. Thanks Richard Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Chicken an are we neighbours! I live behind Vancouver golf club. Super close to the Petro can you speak of on Austin haha. Ill here the advice of my fellow bc boys. I'll build er into stock form and get the inspection done in primer, then I'll carry on as I have planned. Probably better for the bank at the end of the day anyway. Get her roll g and strest9out the expensive pieces Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    I've hit a wall..... Vehicle inspection

    Thanks guys. I think i will continue with it id be silly not to. I spoke with an agent yesterday and they feel that provided im not doing some shady half arse work it should be fine. They gave me the inspection list so I can be sure I hit all the points. I've got a local guy with a bunch of cars. We might pull a fast one and switch some things around .... Well see Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    I've hit a wall..... Vehicle inspection

    It'll be safe, but modified suspension parts etc, having heims in any steering linkage is illegal. Lots of little things that out wonderful monopoly insurance company likes to play at. I guess I could put all the stock stuff in mechanically then go from there. Hell I suppose it doesn't even need paint. It's just the headache of assembly and another full strip to finishbsome stuff and lay paint Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
  12. So I bought the s30 with i documents and getting a registration (title) isn't a big deal. I'm basically finished that BUT the insurance company tells me the car was registered out of province and that I need a pre registration safety inspection. Frig, how am I supposed to get and pass an inspection on a car that's completely torn down. My options are put it together and bring it in, or do I continue on the path of building it and hope at the end of the line I don't get screwed somehow and have a car I've put a bunch of money and time into that I can't register for some reason. Ahhhh I'd like to go with build it and deal with it later but I wanted to do marker light deletes, suspension will have heims in it so that's a no go a bunch of stuff...... Maybe I should just try and track down a local rusty $^!# bagged car and swap Vin's. How can I rivet a id plate in Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
  13. Hey guys. Over my collection period here I have 6 wheel cylinders. I've been tempted to do a rear disc conversion but read mixed reviews and figure I'll just run it stock at first. Should I just clean up these old cylinders and pull the piston to see if shes in nice shape inside? Any other things to look for. I'm sure out of the 6 I must have 2 good ones!

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    I wish I had gotten to do the floors myself. Not super happy with the PO work. I might tune the drivers side up Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk

    Discussion on idea for "air horn" fix

    The rockers are good and solid throughout. I agree on the massaging, i held the quarters up and they will need some flexing to get good alignment. I just wanna research best ways for panel fitment, im gunna but weld but get such mixed reviews on small gap vs no gap vs whatever other method haha. The tabco are a bit thicker than stock so ill have to work around that. I might go the cleco clip route and nick off the top 3/8 of an inch then be left with a zip disc wide gap to weld into. By zip I mean the thinnest I can get. http://www.musclecarrestorations.com/articles/tech/metal-work/welding-sheet-metal.html Sent from my SM-N950W using Tapatalk
