What happened to the roof of that 240? Looks like someone jumped on it about 10 times, good work on the repair though  ;)

HI Chaps
Well its pretty much been a year since I took the plunge into small business ownership.
Its been a very hectic year trying to keep all my customers happy as well as continuing to
improve and setup the workshop.
The workshop is fully equipped with everything needed to restore your car from start to finish
or any where in between.

I personally would like to thank all my friends and family that have helped along the way especially
the missus for putting up with my long hours I've been doing.

With a full workshop of cars and more waiting to come in the future of the business is very secure.
The last 6 months have been easier with my fantastic staff member who's passion for quality is second to none. Thanks Ben.
With some more improvements to come over the next 6 months to make us even more efficient and productive all
leads to us giving you the most affordable restoration available.

Keep an eye out on the page or join our Facebook page for daily updates.

Regards
Paul

Some of you may know we have recently modified a 240k to be a GTR clone. The owner has received the
car now but here are some pics

Front and rear wheel arches are different, Also rear wheel tubs. And then all the
wheel arches need a swage line around them.

Great work on the GTR clone Paul. When I was 16 my dad had a 240K  2 door it drove and went well but I thought it was ugly. Now I look at them and think why didn't I like them. It's fantastic to see what goes on in you'd shop mate ESP when it is an old Datsun.

Now I look at them and think why didn't I like them.


I think they were over looked for a few reasons, first of all they are quite an odd shape with the standard '240k' arches and the front grille - basically the non GTR look.

However give them the appropriate GTR 'fruit' and it really brings out the beauty of the design and shape of the coupe. Gives it just the right balance, to me they are a kind of Japanese Muscle car.

Right now my background wall paper is this car.

If I ever do another restoration project I'd love to do a 240k.
