    Need pics of INNER dog leg

    It looks like (A) is flat except on the left side. Is that true? Or i it shaped more like (B)?

    Need pics of INNER dog leg

    @Patcon: See below - Comparing the photo you posted on Nov 22 to another one I've found, . Yours on the left (A) looks flatter than (B) on the right. Is that an illusion? Trying to understand the shape before I start fabricating... Thanks!! Jughead

    Makes sense. Have you ever run into anyone making them?

    Need pics of INNER dog leg

    I wonder if it would be ok to use a flat piece of metal. Thoughts? Also, what “dimples” are you referring to? Do you mean the spotweld dimples? Nice car btw.

    Need pics of INNER dog leg

    Wow! Thanks for the great & speedy response! I LOVE this forum!! The image I needed is below. @Diseazd: See the 1st pic that I copied from you below. Is that the original factory build? (It looks to be.) Also, I notice that there's a hole in the original outer rocker - right over the seat belt mount nut. Is the hole stock too? @240260280: Any chance you still have the diagram/measurements that you used to make the panel indicated by the blue arrow? (2nd pic below.) If so, I'd be much obliged if you would pass it along. I'll bet there a ton of Z freaks who would benefit from it! Thanks again guys - really helpful, Jughead

    Need pics of INNER dog leg

    Fellow Zedheads, I'm repairing my doglegs and want to fabricate the INNER dog leg as close to original as possible. I can't find an image of a non-rusted inner dogleg. (There are plenty of pics of rusted ones!). Can anyone help? I've attached pics of mine for reference. The piece I'm referring to is in front - with the jagged, rusty bottom. Thanks!! jughead
  11. That explains he rust in my front fenders. I wonder where the Datsun designers thought the water would go...?

    Where to go with this rusthole

    Hey Elliott000: What did you end up using for the piece between the outter dogleg and the seatbelt screw hole? That's where I am now Andre I'm considering. My options. See pics. Anybody have a best practice here? Thanks!!

    240Z hatch repair panel

    The only thing between the panels is the adhesive. Both metal surfaces have to be clean and bright. The top of the replacement slam panel has auto body primer on it. JH

    BTW: I used a brake to get the lip for the weather seal, so it's all one piece. Hope this helps... Jughead
