Just some clean up left to do.  But I like the silver. 

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

5.5 in the front and back.  17x10 up front and 17x11.5 out back.  315/35/17 rear and 275/40/17 front.  For now I am putting BAMF flares from jpn garage.... but I have some additional changes coming.  First I want this thing on the road!!!


When it comes back from the body shop it will get the roll cage........ It should be good for 9.5 in 1/4 mile........

The car is at Richey Collison, coincidentally Alain's Z is there as well. 2 Datsuns in a sea of Corvettes. ....

The ride height is set so the fender flares can be put on correctly. They are telling me that it will be about 3 weeks..... so my time line is getting pushed back..... when they do the front flares they will also have to clearance the air dam....I will plasti dip the car to see what color I end up spraying it in the end..

As no surprise I don't have the car back from the body shop yet.  they seem to be under staffed currently and are "working me in" as best they can.  A few pics...... the driver's side rear had some rust in the inner wheel tub so they did some patch work for me, as well as welded up everything.  On to the other side.  I am in New York working for the week so I won't be able to make surprise visits during the week..... as I like to show un announced.... I keep hoping and praying that I will have the car back before Thanksgiving, but with my luck it will be Christmas......

Went by the shop to check on my car.  1 flare left to install.  Hopefully within the next 2 days it should be back at the shop for final assembly. Evidently the people that did the full repaint on the car, and the rust repair a the fender lips were bondo happy....... The previous owner has reassured me that the car was never in an accident.  It spent 2 or 3 years in Chicago at the first part of its life and the salt on the roads is what took a tole on the car.  He had it repainted back in the late 70s and they must have smeared all the bondo on the panel.....

Because I like torturing myself on the progress of my car.  Wiring harness has been measured out, discussed as well as a few other things.   It is getting a cage, and gauges taken care of while there is some down time.  I am also ordering some sound deadening, but it is not like it is really going to do much..... I guess it is just for my own piece of mind I guess.  So here are the pics.
