I forgot to add this to my page. 

I have replaced the rockers on both sides of the car due to rust, as well as a few small patch panels.  I am shaving the fuel door and the antenna hole. 

Wheels will be to my by mid December ( I hope). 

I bought 2 more 240z cars  4/72 and a early 71.  The 71 will get freshened up and sent off to sale in the spring.

Adding some photos of the rust removal and repair panels.  Car has been stripped down to metal.  New weatherstripping kit is going to be used for EVERYTHING.  my custom SevenK wheels will be in my hands by the first week of Jan.  I hoped for a good Christmas but no luck. 

On another note I have dropped off my 4/72 240z off to get roadworthy.  Plans for that car will be coilovers, full motor build, 5 speed swap, Rear diff swap, wheels, full interior, LED lighting all exterior, new paint.... I have a long way to go on that car....

More rust was found on the car than I would like to admit.  So all rust is being cut out and repaired. 

I have also opened up the rear wheel well to accommodate a 28" tire up from my current 26" set up.... It should all tuck under the flares....

I know the feeling man, mine was the same way except my doors were good and I was able to find a pair of brand new OEM fenders. You would be better off buying a good hatch for it than spending a bunch of labor on fixing that one. Ask me how I know.....LOL.
