Sedan Body Parts Needed

Hello Everyone,

Its been quite a while since I've posted here. I have scheduled a return trip to Austin next month to repair and restore my '72 1200 sedan.

I am trying to somehow, get aftermarket sheet metal that usually comes out of Australia, through a US source.
I am needing a driver's door, both fenders, hood and valance.

Any leads or pointers would be helpful. PanelHouse will not ship to the US.

John

The sheet metal sold in Australia comes out of Taiwan. Some Taiwan companies (like Kings) advertise as shipping worldwide. See http://google.com/search?q=65100-H1000

Be aware that these panels are reportedly not as good as genuine Nissan (which are still available out of Japan and expensive). The Chinese panels need some adjustment to install, as if they were made with worn out press dies ... but they are inexpensive

also see suppliers for two examples
Open in new window

* DT20-013-0 DATSUN 1200 -73 FRT APRON LOWER
* DT20-015-0 DATSUN 1200 BONNET (Sedan / Ute)
* DT20-016-1 DATSUN 1200 FR GUARD RH (Sedan / Ute)
* DT20-016-2 DATSUN 1200 FR GUARD LH (Sedan / Ute)
* DT20-077-0 DATSUN 1200 TAILGATE

The sedan door parts are four 4-dr sedan (short doors). The 2-door sedan needs a long door, the coupe door will work if the window frame is swapped. I dunno if anyone make long doors nowadays. The short doors were made until 2007, long doors until 1975
