Damn - nice colour!

Can't wait to see it in the flesh. Great work Mike.

Technically this isn't a "Shinny New Dime" as paint was completed in July of 2012 - BUT she has yet to be on the road so that MAY count as new, right?

There are still issues outstanding with the restoration job done. I'm currently taking it up with the shop that did the work.

Yeah, but I highly recommend NOT using them for anything Datsun related. They like their muscle cars and exotics but they treated my car like a joke. There's dirt in the new paint job, mostly on the hood and trunk. The new seals they installed were either really sloppy or just plane wrong. I could go on but you get the picture. Funny they can make a rare Bugatti out of magnesium but can't manage to fit the trunk seal on a Datsun 510. Weird!

To restore a Datsun properly, you need years... not weeks. :lol:

Making some progress on my car. This thread seems a little dormant. So I thought I would share to wake it up a bit.
