This is honestly some of the most amazing panel work I've ever seen.

That thing was lucky not to be landfill, but now it's resurrected and as straight as a dime to boot.

Carlos got a "urgent" job - a FIAT PUNTO - ( 2nd time front damaged ) - so time for a break on Bluebird long time project ...

With just a small IRON RING on the floor ( marked with a circle ) and some Wood, Carlos can repair ANY CAR :::

Well, as long as you are going to finish the project and not leave it after 6 months. I do think that a man that will go through all this effort for his dream ride, certianly must have pure DATSUN pumping throught his vains. Good on you old boy, and I wish you luck.

Almost 2 monthes and Looks The Same :::
No it does NOT look the same.
When you started, the only thing holding it together was the paint, but now it looks like it is coming up strong & straight.
It's the body that's really worth the effort & the money in the end & it looks like you are going to end up with a bloody good one.

Looks like you will owe Carlos his cash money fee, plus 8 virgins [2 at a time, you don't want to kill him] 12 chickens, 2 goats & a pig.
Well OK 10 chickens.

Hmmmm, now that gives me an idea about bride-price for my daughter. I wonder how many goats & ....................

I love the work you are doing !

The corners aren't Aluminium, they are lead alloy of some sort.

Lead wiping is common where two panels meet. My 1200 Sedan has the same stuff in the rear corners of the roof.

This is an amazing job, particularly when on realises that it's not being done in a high tech professional shop with all the latest wizzbang tools.

I think that you should be most proud of this car when it's done, & you should treat Carlos, your body repair man, to a fair payment, a good feed, & six virgins. [not all at once] He's doing a great job.

Oh, and these things are so stinking rare, any of them are worth fixing.

Although if this one was mine, I'd be cutting out the floor and doing a tube frame. Otherwise the next 4 years would be spent on rust repair...

Datsunboy.
Datsun did in fact refer to them as a 'leather top'. Mind you, it was made of simulated artificial imitation fake leather. This is better known as vinyl to the rest of us.

You have not bothered to give us some basic location info, so I don't know if the bloke that did my top would be able to do yours, but he is a specialist that just does these & he's mobile as well.

yeah, I figured they'd be Vynyl, but as the parts books said leather, I thought Id say that to be safe.

sorry, Im in NZ, I only really joined up to 1200.com to ask about this coupe .
I hang around on the NZ datsun forums aswell as datnet and ozdat also.

Geez mate, you & your friends should get a medal for rising above all adversity & saving a very desirable Datsun.
It looks to be a huge job, particularly when you have no factory repair panels to do it with.

Keep the pictures coming.
