100% B110 restoration project

Hi everybody!!!

This is my first post, I'm from Portugal and I'm very proud to have a Datsun!!!
I hope I can learn and teach some stuff with you!!!

Now the story of my RENEW B110!!!

My 1200 was bought on November 2004, and after that it broke 3 differentials!!!
The car apparently looks very good, but the true is that he was not that good!!! Some paint problems, engine troubles, rust problems and many other things!

I painted for new, but after some years I understood that I've nada a big mistake, so I will give Him a second chance, eternal life, as you can see by the photos...

My project is for renew the old parts, fix him from about the problems and of course, lead it to the closest possible to the original!!!

I hope you enjoy it as I...

Today I'll put the photos from the other day and then I'll keep ths post updated!!!

Datsun Rules...
Mário


This is the only I'have got from where the car was...




Engine repair, yet with the original paint!

























Then I painted like this!!!
In the beginning it looked vry well, but...
The interiors were not the correct ones, and now they are being restored!!!

Hello Everybody!!!
Thank you for the comments!!!
Today I’ll show you the car in the stretch machine!!! It was very bent from the left wheels to right whells!!!




This zone stretch 2 cm’s...



And now this part all corrected!!!

Before...



Then...



Now a good news, the right side of the back was rebuilt...and look at the perfection...all handmade...the man is art!!!
But look at the imagens…

Before...


Then....







The interior...






At the end, the right side new...




And now the left side...





The left side almost complete!!!
It is visible some union points because this part was made outside the car. Firs was cut and then rebuilt!!!








This is a middle stage, when the new part is founded with another...sooner we will see the results!!!

The interior already treated with gravel to avoid the bodywork affected with rocks and mud…








And now one of the worst parts, the wings!!! You Will see…

Fibre was covering the wing...and I mean a lot!!!



The bak, not bad...only rust, nothing to worry about



Well, this is critical...but no problem...



Another crash covered with fibre...



And these are the áreas that will be reconstructed...



In this one, the rust consuming all the body…



And that’s all for today!!!
I hope finishing the project on the next November, because it started on the previous November…I think one year is enough to rebuilt a car!!!

When I arrived Sr. Vitorino garage thye car was like this...



The back side almost ready...but it still needed some work to be tottaly repaired...


Sr. Vitorino making the crease...



And here the Job almost done...


Finishing this part...







Inside the trunk, the part has the anti-corrosive treatment...



Finally the crease done...



A curious thing...no rust in the ceiling after taked the curtain (I don’t know the name, I suppose it’s curtain)


Now let’s move to the trunk...it’s plenty of rust…







Let’s return to the front wings, and here the parts are all “naked, no paint and no fibre...ready to be repaired...


The left wing has some rust...







While on the right wing a metal part is separated to be rapired. It’s the back os the structure…

The bumper was corrected and it’s ready to crome!!!



And now the chaufage for clean and rebuilt!!! The sponges are old, have some smell, and it needs to be clean!!!





These shock supports were bent, and we correct them...it happens because the car was crashed this side!!!







Now look what I found...the shock absorbers were not the correct ones!!!
Do you note any differences???? Maybe the problem whit the differential was Here, I don’t know bout with the supports bent, the shock absorbers wrong and the left side crashed it can be a possibility!!!

They belong right and left side...



Now take a look at the size????



They have 10 cm’s of difference among them!!
The problem was here, definitely…



Look at the new whells....they are a 1971 BWA, are Italian and aluminium compound…


When I bought them…







After they went to a repair shop...



The new centres for the wheels



All together...it looks pretty…I’ll put it the size (175\80\12)




Thae chaufage was like this:

Hi again!

Today I will continue with some metal work and cleaning some of the old parts from the interior!!!
I think everything is staying in good conditions, because they are old arts and so on…
Thank you for the comments!!! I appreciate it a lot…



The body...


The hood arm that will be niquelated


The electrical system...and I think it has some little surprises, because I saw on it some wires cutted…


All te rubbers to clean…


Now look at this Picture, a lot of scars and crashes over the part...







And metal work!!!

Before...


After...





But in the end Sr. Vitorino had to cut the canal and rebuilt it, it was very rusty and with no resistence…


The door...It keeps running to the final step..




And another hole to be corrected...
A lot of fibre was covering it…


And the cut...






Inside the hole, the bodywork was in good conditions, but it was also treated.



The metal cutted...
