Guess I should start with a little introduction and then a couple pictures of my latest project (which is going to be one hell of an undertaking) so any advise on location of parts would be most welcome? I am very new to the world of the Z car. Not however new to CARS......... My father "John Chatham" has been in the restoration classic car business 50 years, and was a works race driver for Austin Healey in the 60's. He raced his whole career up until the mid 90's and now likes to watch me and my brother batter the race car round the track. So facilities and experience to undertake this kind of monster build, we have! The car in question is a 1978 Datsun 260z. Fitted with (reportedly) one of the most accurate Ferrari 250 GTO kits ever produced. The kit was so good Ferrari walked in one day, bought everything (tools, Moulds) and then smashed it all, in front of everyone. The man that till a week ago owned the car for the last 25 years had it dry stored until 2006. This is where for some godly unknown reason he saw fit to leave it outside!!!!!!!!!!!!! It now needs a lot of work!!!! And here is where my part of the story must begin. Hope you guys enjoy the ride and please help out if you have contacts in the panel/parts trade or know where is best to go? LOTS OF WELDING NEEDED HERE!!!
