  1. Might be an option? Im sure they would love a Niva.
  2. Yea that bonnet is the best ive seen bar the 2 i have. Get it hammered out and fixed properly plus fill it with stuff to keep the rust away once its done. Last owner before me said they had replaced the lower sections of all the doors so obviously not prepared or sealed properly. The rear guard area is a problem on 90% of datsuns - just needs a small amount of water to start fizzing in the join. Yes you will constantly be catching rust - but a whole lot less than most peoples classics.
  3. What about Barrel Bros in Aus? Also - this is gonna look so good on those - glad its getting the love it deserves.
  4. Wow you can buy lots of steel panel stuff for that - im sure there will be parts still in Sweden/Scandinavia and the likes. I got a front guard and boot lid for one of my Cedrics from Norway of all places. Keep up with the build, I may have to join you on a welding course. One word when stripping down - lots of ziplock bags. I didnt think i liked Saabs but this thing is awseome.
  5. Found the one i did - was in the C231 Laurel hardtop (wish i kept this one). This was 3 coats plus heatgun after the last coat - make sure coats are sprayed horizontal, vertical then diagonal - seemed to work legit. Chris's oil thing worked too - i was going to sand the letters back etc and polish.
  6. @CUL8R has done a couple of great jobs on rocker covers with the VHT stuff. - any pics Chris? Just make sure the missus is out so you can bake it in the oven (well sort of with the 6 cyl) Also I have no idea where to make / buy those bushes for the subframe - you could ring around the genuine dealerships until you get a @Brdflu kinda parts guy that loves to find the old stuff. Ball joints and the like are still available aftermarket if they need replacing.
  7. Great work - my boss was a Citroen specialist in Christchurch years ago. If you get stuck im sure help is just around the corner. I helped sort his DS21 Pallas last year before he sold it - they are not a complicated as you think and are actually fun to drive (especially on 3 wheels lol) Pics for inspiration
  8. That old green 330 i had was and still is the quietest car on the road ive ever driven - driving at 100kph and being able to talk in a normal voice to anyone in the car was nice. One day ill get back to quiet motoring. Spam but this thread needs more build pics lol
  9. Ill measure them up this weekend - life gets in the road as usual
  10. Update and shitty phone pic - 1x piece of the puzzle. looks like Mk1 and Mk2 share similar floorpan and seat mounts. Got home tonight with it and just had to get in the shed and try it. Thanks to @d.p.n.s for digging this out. Will most likely recover in the green at later date. Next is seatbelts and folding up some bumper brackets.
  11. Nice work - great progress so far. +1 for twin round headlights too.
  12. Currently looking for rear bumper brackets for 63-64 cortina - i have no idea what they should even look like. If someone has a pic of them that would be most helpfull
  13. I was going to say early and late Mk1 but i see yours is an airflow. My non airflow sedan has them
