Looks very nice. Is that the original green?
Mines a bit lighter than the original but will still look very close to that. Will be good to see what its like out side on a summers day.

Thanks guys!

The green, dan reckons, looks like a standard Datsun green with a metallic pearl. Im not sure I know what the standard green looks like though but the color is a later model Holden green.

In the sunlight it has a wicked shine! It's not all buffed up yet the painter guy is going to come round once it's all together and spend some time getting it all super smooth.

Thanks for the mean hospitality too!

So just a wee update, we have decided to go with the Z31 struts after Dan figured out how to make it work. So now we know what struts I'm using I can go on the hunt for some wheels which I think I'll be getting from Japan at this stage.

Also brought some Camber plate the other day which turned up today. John needs to (i think) drill the top nuts to a new thread size?!?!. Brought new and shiny TC rods, Tie rod ends and lower control arms yesterday but they are coming from the states so not sure how long it'll take to get here. Hopefully super sweet suspension and handling!

Not really progress as such but I guess more prep work it'll be all go when it gets legal tegal.
