Datsun 1200 ute/sedan parts needed

After a few parts for the ute. One of the access panels in the tray (front left or right rear, doesn't matter which), one of the bars that goes over the rear window and some roof gutter trim chrome. Unsure if sedan gutter trim fits or not. I measured my gutter and its about 115cm long. If anyone cou...

Re: Jordan's 1200 Ute

The parts hoarding continues as I wait for the space, time and money to get this into work and rip into it properly. Got myself a pair of chrome front indicators (lenses are shagged but I only got them for the surrounds), b210 swaybar and a b210 rear bumper. So now I have to decide if I go with the ...

Re: Otodats President

I wouldn't bother cavity waxing the front until the whole car has been painted if you are doing it in a spray booth. If you cavity wax before hand, it can go runny again while on the bake cycle in the booth and either pool in the lowest point or run out of any drainage holes. Just a heads up

Re: Jordan's 1200 Ute

Grille restorations the last couple days. Bought a 3-piece metal grille, pulled it apart, painted and polished it and even had a crack at getting one of the bigger dents out of one of the chrome trims. It's not mint but it takes your eye off it. Now to figure out the best way to mount it using the f...

Re: Jordan's 1200 Ute

Progress on the ute has pretty much come to a halt as I bought a house 6 weeks ago and have been working on that rather than the datsun but today I thought I'd splash out and get some bits. Went down to Timaru and bought a 1200 sedan rear bumper and all the bits needed for a metal grille conversion ...

Rooms for rent in Prebbleton Chch

Hi everyone. I know that this is super off topic from what should be on a car forum but thought I'd see anyway. I have recently bought a house and have a couple rooms to fill in Prebbleton. Both are good sized, one gets the morning sun and the other gets the afternoon so you can take your pick. It's...

Re: Jordan's 1200 Ute

Got myself one of those mk1 VW golf spoilers off ebay. 6 days shipping from America, couldn't believe it when it turned up that quick. Couple hours of fluffin around in the garage this morning and its on and ready to be taken out by all the Christchurch potholes
