let's start a built thread on a sedan.
It was originally an auto - now it's a shell of rust holes.

One of two Autos I bought roughly this time last year in Ararat - not the mountain, no I didn't meet a guy there with an Ark.

I have stored both of them under cover for 12 months while i did a few other things ..Fix the ute a few times, repaint the coupe, Etc

Anyway here's a 360 degree of lovely rust in the one that will probably be the basis of the rest of the thread ... if you like rust then get ready because this will knock your socks off.

Iíve been patiently waiting for this build thread to start.

Can I suggest NOT getting this shell sandblasted....as they might just give you a bucket of rust dust on your return.

On a serious note, good on ya for tackling such a daunting build. Youíll be a pro welder by the end of it 👍

Ive never seen that rust on any 1000s so on that note
I could never love a datsun 1200 like you guys can!
Pro welding services for sure when you finish

Started on the rust repairs and have some help from 3 tools that arrived just before Christmas.

No work that could make sparks today .. it's going to be 43 degrees Celsius!

Pictures soonish
EDIT: added another 'PRE' photo I missed out before ... Seems like this Sedan was used as Target Practise at some stage

Wow, those tools should really help. All you need now is a Metal bending brake and an English wheel and you'd be able to make a 1200 from scratch...preferably from aluminium, so rust would never be a problem again!

Looking forward to the progress shots.

Let me know if you need anything for this, i am dismantling my sedan and the body will most likely be cut up and disposed of.
i will be keeping only the parts that fit my coupes.

Upon careful thought.... I can swap you for the yella shella .... basically straight with rust repaired but at some stage someone reattached the roof (before I bought it) .... I think they did a good enough job. You can transfer everything over to a much less rusty platform! what's more I could deliver it to you! now that's a deal!
