You have dropped off the scene for a while - all is good I hope in Miguel's world?

Well folks, I've been away from restoration, for there was no time and other reasons stood strong, but I will now turn to finish the SSS slowly, without haste, because the time is still not much, because I study at night but during ... this time of "fasting" I did not leave to buy Datsun's!!

Hey Miguel, do you want to sell the Turquoise (562) 2 Dr 510 model?
Perfect match for my car. :D

I did not want to sell, because these cars are very hard to find them around here ... and the price of them here should be more expensive, than there ...

Thanks to all

Here comes the first pictures of some things I was doing and take some time ...

I was to buy a steering box support, but after much thought, I decided to be doing it .... because it definitely come from outside is very expensive ...

The idea came from here:
Image
I started to develop a mold
Image
The mold done and tested on steering box
Image
The pieces already machined by the respective mold were made of stainless steel of 4mm thickness, so can already see that they are resistant ...
Image
A support placed in the box to see the result
Image

Now the pieces finished with a polishing

miguel sss,
Are you out there? It's been over 4 years. Does anyone know what became of Miguel and his SSS?

Vanished like a fart in the wind. I imagine his location in Portugal is making it quite difficult to gather parts let alone get things done. Hopefully its just life that is holding him up where eventually Miguel will be back at it.
