Quick update, this weekend I got the sugar scoops, valance and the panel in front of the windscreen all sand blasted and in undercoat. I then roughly fitted everything up to the front of the car to check panel alignment. All in all pretty happy, the gaps are pretty even all round.

It has been a while since I have posted but progress is still being made. Today I got to a point that was IMO post worthy and to be honest I didn't want CBR Jeff taking all the limelight. I expect anybody that has been through the process of preparing a car from bare metal (rust repaired) to being ready for paint will know it is a time consuming task. The old Datsun 240Z was not the best body line wise from the factory and 46 years later she certainly has some tales to tell, so getting her back to looking her best takes time. As usual I will let the pics do the talking and for George, you may have won round 1 but I'm catching up.

 

Cheers Jeff (J2)

 

Dave the Jeff's are still here!!!!!!!!

The old commentator curse. I have done some work on the old girl through Jan-Feb but everything has come to a screaming holt as I have got busy with house development work (swimming pool going in for the kids). I had planned to get colour on this in April whilst the weather in Adelaide is normally a pretty constant mid 25 Deg, but that won't happen know. I suspect colour coates will be more like Sept now. Need not worry as I have plenty of other jobs to go on with like engine detail, dash refurb etc, all good winter jobs. I tried the colour out on a motorcycle I have been fixing up and I'm pretty happy with the choice. Over to the latest pics.

Take your time mate, it's not a race...  ::)

 

Colour looks very 70's. Love it.
