cheers,
so now im looking for sand blaster shop,
may need to go to bigger city 100 ks from here,
 
so once sand blasted will need to paint inside and under asap right? or
surface rust will form again,
 
iv got the front side sprear indicators,
thats great news on the tail lights,
are the lenses ok? may be able to make new body / housing,
let us know man,
cheers paul.
i dont know how much room you have but with a decent sized air compressor and a small gun you should be fine. thats all im doing. if the car is not stored in a dry place in doors it will rust and should be painted as soon as possible.†
the lenses are cracked for you it may be cheaper to get them from austraila i think you are closer to there then here. but ill go take some pics this week or the next

thanks bee20 nice 1,

no surrounds is a bummer can you give me some idea about the surrounds,
can i use them without surrounds?
is it a looks thing?
or do they hold the lenses in or such?
The chrome surrounds are used for mounting the lights and holding the lenses in.

The complete light should look like this.


If you have a million dollars then there are some new parts avaliable here.

If you are unsure about which parts are the long lights and which are the short im happy to take the time and let you know which is which.

And one chrome surround listed within the trim section.

good links mate ty,
no million here
the ones in japan look the goods and good price,
how can i buy those need to translate page right,

the ones in jap are long right?
the ones on abouttime are short?
the surround is short?

may be worth considering the about time set as they are new old stock,
are they complete with surround and lenses?
thanks heaps.
A couple of topics about buying from japan.

nice 1 mate that'll be great,
nice too see your off to the sand blaster,
i couldnt find a sand blaster so just doing best we can by hand,
what's your plan on the paint are you doing the under body and iner guards
yourself?

mine is off to the body shop today will be done in (Dupont paint system), was wondering what the right paint is for the underbody etc.
my painter† says to do it in like a stone guard finish† as is normally on the bottom seal below the doors on new cars,

is this right? let us know what your doing underneith,
I'm doing everything maybe the int too we shal see.†
For a coatung I may do a truck bed liner depending on cost. I did rock guard on my trucks frame but it did not last.
I think new cars have the bottoms done and painted over too but then it leaves a line so it's all up to you.

well i did some sand blasting and it turned out to be very very exspeinsive to do so i will be getting it done at a shop as it will cost less. its cost $150 to do 1/4 of a frame rail. so will be sent out and just have the engine bay and the under body as of now just sanding down the surface as the tarp did not protect it from the rain.†

looks great mate,
im jelous of the body on her, mine has seen a few beatings! my rear guards just aren't as nice as yours, and the side
crease if ya know what i mean,
mines in the body shop and in true thai fashion its going slow but a couple of problems have come up for me, so
its ok,
i will post some pics on my post soon,
you and i have something inparticular in comon we both have 69, 2sedan 2 doors, and were both restoing
at the same time!

im not doing the work myself bt im trying to pay thai guy bit by bit, (i do have some good guys on it though)
very fair price also, and just for interes sake they are actually somewhat pasionate about it althgough.......

i went there today and they had painted the controll arms with the ball joints in them 0_o
im gonna have to accept the local standards,

i just want my baby back now,

cop this, im going white with red roof and† red stripe on over the boot and bonnet on the drivers side,

hope to represent the b10 whith something different,

let me know what you think,

cheers paul.
nice ya could almost do a race but i think your will be on the road before mine. i will have to put mine on hold or work on it slowly as im going to school in 6 months and need so save for that. i think youhave more access to more parts there is a few parts in ebay that are from thailand

the white with red sound good will stand out. i will be repainting mine a nice blue again. i was thining a two tone charcol grey roof on a dark red would look good if i was goijg to go more custom.

hope tp see your come along soon

here are some more pictures. the feners look so much better and overall the car looks pretty clean so maybe it will be a double resto. one a resto and one resto mod.
