My 1975 C110 Skyline Restoration

Good question... I think I always knew that old Nissan/Datsun was a can of worms but the difficult part is you don't really know just how big the can is until you blast the shell. The shell was pretty bad, lots of hidden gems but I'm in so deep now that the only thing to do is to finish it. It will be worth it in the end...*nervous laughter* 

I think that's the answer i was expecting ;)

I for one certainly think it will be worth it in the end, do it once, do it right ?

I see a lot of restos at work, but this is genuinely right up there with the best of them!

Especially these days, to cut out rust and hand-beat those panels with body lines and all is a dying art; and to my primitive hands, absolute witchcraft!

Fantastic work mate! Can't wait to see it progress :D

Thanks mate, wish I could take the credit but the body work is being done by Paul and his team at Custom and Classic Cars in Mount Barker, SA. Definitely wizardry though huh, I saw them do a number of other cars before mine including another C110 and decided they'd be great for the job. The waiting list was well over a year long!

Now that the body is rust free the rest of the body kit can be fitted and this includes the front spoiler. The spoiler was pretty flimsy and fitment was rubbish so it needed a lot of work and brackets made up to stabilise.

Oooh yeah, I'm sure there will be some hidden gems in the Hako too. On the plus side, at least you can buy some pre made replacement sections?

Yeah but by the time/cost they get to NZ probably cheaper/easier just to get em folded locally

Far out, Adz! This is unreal.

Hey Liz! Funny you should ask, took these in Melbourne on the weekend. 

The shell is now completely rust free and modified. There is still some panel work and prep to be done before it's ready for paint. I'll have the remainder of the work done here in Melbourne now.
