The Rustifaction of Darcy Brown - HS30-103556

Fri, 14/09/2018 - 22:13
Jon contacted me some 18 months ago about restoring his '73 240Z... But first a short story: Emails back and forth during the 18 moths between Jon and myself, pitching idea's and discussing budgets Vs what Jon wanted to achieve out of the restoration resulted in a plan of attack. We'll be stripping the Z down, Media blasting it, repairing any rusted areas we find (floors, doglegs, door bottoms at this stage) and filling in the dreaded sunroof hole that Jon's Dad had fitted back in the 70's! Then respraying in the factory brown, but replacing the tired 'Biscuit' interior with the more suitable black, lowering it in King's and Koni Yellows with 15inch Konig Rewinds. Jon has bought all new interior, along with new suspension and brake parts. Engine, gearbox and diff is being handled by Les Collins to give Darcy Brown some more get up and gooooooooooo..... So a couple of weeks ago 'Darcy Brown' was delivered (by Get My Ride) to my workshop... ...and this week we got stuck into pulling the Z down. More to come...
