  1. The only word of caution I would give you is that bodywork is much harder than it looks (to get it right). Especially fixing previous collision damage, cutting out rust and patching it up isn't too bad. If you are very picky with the overall finish of the car and bodywork, I'd highly recommend outsourcing some of the more difficult area. I've re-done a lot of spots I wasn't happy with and still not 100% happy with in some cases. Mechanical stuff on the other hand is easy enough to do (with the right tools). The MCM boys bought a car with a solid body, which made everything else easy. The car Jeff bought was quite rough to begin with, he had a lot of messing about with the bodywork. If you're in Sydney and want to do bodywork you may be interested in the classes at Ultimo. I have moved to Melbourne and can no longer attend.

  3. I've been trying for 20 years, does that count? :). A lot of it I'm doing for the first time. Learning as I go.
  4. The white 1 I've just put on temporary registration, will get it on Historic Plates as soon as possible. The Safari Gold car is my current project and priority, but it is also a lot of work.
  5. Closest car chassis no. wise to your car is HS30 01014 here (that I have on record). https://photos.app.goo.gl/YibfVFjOymzMqmGh1
  6. Awesome, she looked a little dirtier on the trailer
  7. Hey Mike, Did Joe from Get My Ride recently tow this for you? I thought I saw a black 1 like this on his Facebook page. Do you know what the chassis no. is?
  8. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/184175970175?ul_noapp=true Pair of Solex 40s' for sale.
  9. @smugley can you tell me what the chassis no. is for this 1?

  12. Please list a price. Also why are you selling them? You were asking for me to sell you a set for a while. Did you end up tooling up to make these?
  13. Hi Folks, This is starting again for anyone interested in attending. Contact: John Abbott PH: 0452 445 007 Starting Next Monday: Feb 17th. Location: Ultimo Tafe in Sydney. I cannot attend as I'm moving interstate. I believe John will run the classes (my teacher was Charlie) so I don't know if your experience will be the same, but a good way to learn new skills and fix your own cars!
  14. Yeah I was gutted for Jack, I knew him and the car 20 years ago. Back when we used to go on car cruises with MCCR (Melbourne Car Cruise Registry). A couple of photos attached. The white 2+2 was my old girl. The orange 260z was for sale on here a year or 2 ago with an RB20DET in it. So the only car that still exists I'm afraid. Jack took me for a spin in the yellow Z 1 night and it was pretty quick, a few times he was gonna sell the L28 turbo and I was contemplating how to find the money for the set up.. never happened obviously. I believe it was at his father in laws house and nobody was injured/hurt. The Turbo L28 in Jack's car originally came out of Sinisha Banjac's 240z. https://www.facebook.com/NDN2019/posts/winner-modern-4000cc-4999cc-sinisha-banjac-datsun-240z-sinisha-was-also-the-fast/457881281614742/ So there is quite a bit of history with the car, and it's engine...

  19. Well the car is heading back to Victoria! After all this time in NSW. I had to partially put the car back together. Motor back in it, reassemble the door + trim etc.. and get it rolling again (brakes seized slightly from sitting). It just happened to rain 100mm in Sydney today when we were moving it along with my hoarde of Z-shyte! Honestly, not sure why I collected 5 sets of Topy's... if anyone came by today I would have given it all away. But now it's on the way to my new home I'll find a use/home for it.
  20. HS30 00314 is toast sadly, house fire.. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:0v7xZULXLukJ:origin.autospeed.com/cms/title_Yella-Delight/A_108383/article.html+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au
  21. Sunrise cars = Edwards Lee's. But previously it was offered via Presley's which I have no idea if they are affiliated with Mr Lee and friends or not.
  22. Just added KF Vintage JDM who are making inner sill sections and seat rails.
  23. Anyone think the Edward Lees 260z for sale as seen in post. #211463 Is the same car as the 1 on Gumtree under Sunrise cars? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/concord/cars-vans-utes/1977-datsun-260z-burgundy-manual/1228615653 It looks like the same car, just auto->manual conversion. Door trims re-done. Seats changed and headers changed to stock. Same 240K wheel, radio, paint colour, sam mirrors ,wheels, carby set up etc..
