Please help with Anyone that knows who can do metalwork and welding for 260Z resto in Sydney

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, Just wondering if anyone knows of a good (and not too expensive) shop that can do metalwork and rust repairs for my 1977 260Z resto? Generally the body is very good but small amounts of rust in the usual places.  The following needs attention:

- Holes in lower back of rhs guard

- Hole in chassis support where rhs guard bolts on the the lower rear 

- Hole in side of rhs chassi srail (approx 3 cm x 5 cm) 

- Radiator support panel (lower section that faces the lower radiator tank)  has some small (5mm) rust holes, seems that the heat and cooling from the radiators makes these sweat and they all seem to fail

- side panel rhs near where the bonnet release mechanism is attached (3 cm x 5 cm hole) 

- ideally I'd like to get the rear hatch panel done, its been done before but not very well 

- The floors all seem very good, as does the spare wheel well

- The firewall, heater induction area, wiper cowls etc are all excellent, but need some abrasive blast cleaning to remove surface rust and repriming 

Cheer Guys,

Anyone good in Sydney is expensive. Cost of rent, skills required and demand from classic car owners means they can afford to turn away jobs they don't want. I'd recommend looking out of state perhaps Adelaide or down Warragul way in Victoria... I've seen some of the work cheaper shops do and I wouldn't trust them myself.

I do know of a Natoli Panel Creations in Sydney (he was my Tafe teacher in Kogarah Tafe), very good, but I don't believe you'll find him "cheap".

He did a lot of work on the last Mad Max film.
