    thank you for allowing us to join .
    We are always looking for Datsun 240 /260z and have just finished a complete restoration of a 74 Datsun 260 Z .
    Full details on our Facebook page 1st choice car and body repairs Ltd or our website www.1stchoicebodyworks.net .
    It has been a truly epic battle as was a complete mess but seeing it now after 100s of hours of dedicated work by the team is simply so satisfying it is simply lovely and we have such a passion for Z models we are hopeful to get more in to restore .

    Look forward to meeting the new owner.

    Interesting that you primered it then removed the windows then.

    Wow, I've just looked through all the pictures on your website. You have certainly put a lot of work into this one. I'm sure most would have considered it just a parts car but you've certainly turned it around.

    Good luck with the sale.

    It does look very nice.
    A small detail - the side repeaters are on the wrong way round.

    No offence, but that looks worse than my original white car and that was built for a track car. Either the welding gear was on too high a power or more likely the metal was too thin that was being welded too...

    Should have cut the front end off and sourced a cut front end.

    As my car is just cruising past Costa Rica it will be a while before I do the paint, is there a consensus on the best place to get a repaint and rough cost for windows out paint job including the underside and engine bay

    I'm not going to comment on the repair.

    I am a bit concerned that this Thread may be seen as an advert.

    What I never understand is how a car (or house) can be priced at such a strange figure.

    In this case the price was £29, 993.

    It really was important to us to save it these cars are so rare I will be honest it was a fair bit worse than we anticipated but we kept at it all the way through it is important that cars such as this are saved and that the new custodians enjoy them .
    Thank you for your comments .
