Re: My Coupe Project, back to the future.....

not too bad, just a few pin holes here and there.....I have a little work to do though. I need to replace the original front seat supports, they were cut out previously and replace the right rear quarter to name a few.

Re: My Coupe Project, back to the future.....

Today I went over to the shop and vacuumed out all the glass media, started chemical stripping the fenders and it was a really sow process.

Re: My Coupe Project, back to the future.....

Well, it's been a long time, a really long time since I touched a Datsun. Yesterday I started taking the coupe back apart to get it ready to head out to the blaster and body shop. I have a cousin that does restoration work so I called him and got the ball rolling. Hopefully it will get all blasted t...

Yes! I also thought that mine was so nice as it was that I didn’t want to mess with trying to adjust it. I think it’s awesome that you are going to make this available.

Re: Noobie's 510 project

I did the Electric power steering in my first coupe build, I think it's awesome someone is putting a kit together to make it easy to install.

Also, try 1/4 foam or even 1/8" next time. Sometimes you don't need as much foam thickness as you think. And, how did you repair th...

Re: Spriso's SR20DET Bluebird Coupe Project

Wow! that is awesome! I might start looking for a place around here to have mine done now.....very cool! Looks like air was trapped at the spare tire well and rear inner fenders. Maybe drill a small hole next time......

The guy that painted my coupe showed me that trick. Putting them back on will probably c...
