  1. Yes I was a fan of the 260z 2+2 loved them. Did you ever see what happen to the Nissan Bluebirds?
  2. at last putting back together
  3. Rust protection then after welding cavity inhibitor. If the weather is good tomorrow start putting the tops back on
  4. The whole point of this work is RUST so I have been treating all metal surfaces with a zinc phosphate pre-primer metal etcher called RustBlast before paint priming with a welding copper primer. What do you gurus out there think about this as a procedure before i commit to the return of the panels? I don't know what treatment to trust my car to.
  5. Way back before I removed the first spot weld I spent a kings ransom on buying paints and chemicals for the job not being really sure what i would find and how deep i would need to dig. This is available on eBay. I am in Vic and we have only been able to buy on line as all or retail is locked down Sika Sikaflex 527 AT White Specialist Hybrid Car Body Sealant 300ml. Automotive. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Sika-Sikaflex-527-AT-White-Specialist-Hybrid-Car-Body-Sealant-300ml-Automotive/173381054429?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 work as of yeasterday
  6. This is the same noise. I found the problem I am not sure how to explain it. check the direction of the wast gate actuator control valve. This is going to sound very stage. But what the noise was on my GTT was the wast gate actuator was opening the wastage only a little bit creating a condition where hot air was flowing past the gate like air over a whistle like a a church organ works or a steam train blowing it whistle. I kid you not. It was so loud it was defining I even went out a purchased a new turbo That I never fitted . just because I had a small valve the wrong way around.
  7. I had the same problem. it came about after i reassembled the turbo
  8. This is where its up to at the moment. still lots of cleaning to do.
  9. SR Autobodies mentions a rust prevention and converter in one of his Videos called "Rust i Sol" Anybody in Australia able to obtain this product I cannot find it. Metaflux Rust-i-Sol
  10. To keep the job moving I watch one of the SR Autobodies videos. That guy and his Videos have been so helpful not just for inspiration but tip and trick about panel separation and rust prevention. https://www.facebook.com/230766920921566/videos/590784358186675
  11. This is true. I apologies for my previous post, making such a blanket statement. They’re going to many with no rust to just a bit and then like my red one got it bad. I to own a second r34 that is almost factory condition was real barn find. No rust and all straight under the floor and on the chassis rails. Like you I plan to keep it that way.
  12. I very sad to see the awesome cars suffering from time taking its toll. Sometimes I think of it like this the sooner I start the body restoration rust prevention the better I will at lest be ahead of every body else. Every body who owns a skyline that wants to keep it for the future will come to this work kicking and screaming. As a great musician once said "Rust never sleeps, Neil Young". Then with the prices of theses cars going up so fast its making this work worth while. this is what she looks like on the outside.
  13. Would you like the phone number of my therapist maybe we can get a group discount. It is my fault Sorry.
  14. I have spent many hours under the car I pulled it apart before I got the RWC for the owner transfer. YES there is rust in other places. Soon as I have finished the strut towers I will show you where else. I intend to remove as much as possible and treat what i cannot. Then just manage things as years go by. The other point is no accidents damage that i can find she is nice and straight all the panels and door line up looks great on the out side.
