Hey everyone!

Over the next week or so I will try and get this thread as up to date as possible on where my build is up to. It make take some time as I have been working on it for about a year and have a fair bit to write up/remember.

I bought my first 1200 ute about 2 years ago from a nissansilvia.com forum member, it was defected and had a fair bit of rust but I picked it up dirt cheap and figured it wasn't going to be too hard to get off defect. However, this wasn't to be as another ute popped up for a good price and was in much better condition. So I sold off the first ute after taking all the goodies I wanted and started again.

The new one is a 1980 Datsun 1200 Utility. Still running the original A12 engine on gas, which now has the gas removed, the engine is being rebuilt at the moment with a Weber 32/36 carburettor, Electronic ignition and full exhaust including extractors ready to bolt on.

Once I get all of my photos up onto photobucket Ill update this thread, but for now you can go to my facebook album and have a look, as I have put a lot of photos and a small write up for each one on there.

Cheers!

SEE DOWN THE PAGE FOR PICTURES! I am going to upload them in sections until this thread is up to date with the build.

I have started to upload the photos I have up on facebook so I can put them in this thread to make it all a bit easier.

Here is my first ute that is now sold:

And here is my current project ute when once I got it home and chucked the wheels on it;

I'll start getting all the other photos of facebook sorted and upload them ASAP.

Bodywork: The ute has been in the body shop for quite some time having all the panels replaced and all of the cancer removed from inside the guards, tray and floor pan. Here are some pictures of different stages along the way.

Wheels and suspension: I have a couple of different sets of rims for the ute when it's finished. A full set of brand new Superlites in 13x6 +25 up front and 13x7 +0 for the rear. I have a full set of SSR Starsharks as well fronts are 13x6 +20ish and 14x7 -7 for the rear. I also have a pair of Riversides in 13x6 +10ish that I will be looking at getting rid of if anyone is keen? I have had a set of Advan A3A's as well but moved them on, I also was going to run some 15x8 sakura copy rims with guard flares but decided against it so I sold them also. I am running a pair of Datsport adjustable coilovers in the front with disc brakes, combined with adjustable camber tops.

Here is photos of a majority of them and the suspension setup, I'm hoping to get a hold of a pair of 13x7 starsharks/colins for the rear as well.
