    Hi Guys, I need help... Here is my story... In October 2005 I bought my Datsun 1600, I then bought a SR20DET half cut. From then on, I have stripped the car down, had it sandblasted and have had at least 5 panel beaters over the last 4 years interested in cutting the rust for me, but when I phone them for an update, they say "sorry, we have been to busy to do anything to your datsun" At the beginning of this year the brother of my brother in law offered to finish the datsun for me, including cutting the rust and putting it together for me for an amount of money... I paid him some money to start it off, and he has completed the front end, but thats where it has stopped as he has found himself a new job and doesn't have the time to work on it... To tell you the truth, I think he has spent the money I gave him Anyway, I still have some cash, I just want someone to cut the rust for me, and then I can put the datsun back together myself (and my bro in law) as I have all of the parts for it to be finished... So if anyone wants to cut rust for me, or knows of anyone that will do it for some quick cash then let me know, I'm desperate... I don't want to give up on it after I've spent so much money on it... BTW, I can bring the car wherever needed, it is currently stored in Redbank Plains... Thanks, Jodie - (and yes, I'm a girl, so I can't cut rust myself and don't particularly want to learn :P

    hey guys i am new to the forum, i have previously owned a 1969 1000 ute but have just picked up an 1980 1200 ute. The tray pan has had rust cut out of it but it has also been picked off the spot welds and the prevous owner was looking to put checkerplate in. I am just wondering if there is an aftermarket supplier who makes these floor pans as standard, not chekerplate. cheers guys

    Went back out to the drags on 5/10 day. Nice night, got 6 runs in. 18.3@75 11.9@122 11.3@123 11.5@121 12.0@120 13.5@82 Also did some work on the roll cage mount at the rear. I ran a strip of 50x3 across the top of the rear shelf, and the same below it with 20x20 RSS attached then welded it all in with a few braces to the shock mounts. I also included anchor points for a harness. I also masacred the front guards and welded on some flares.

    I stole this from jdmst After skipping the lovely Sydney winter months, soggy grass, date clashes and struggling to find available dates, it seems the planets have all aligned, and ALL JAPAN DAY SYDNEY IS ALL SYSTEMS GO ONCE AGAIN! When: Sunday November 13, 10:00am-3:00pm Where: Silverwater Park, Silverwater (just near the bridge) How did it all start? All Japan Day was born in Adelaide in 2008 as a result of a crisis developing in the import motor enthusiast community. Local car shows involving Japanese imports were losing focus of what the enthusiasts wanted at a car show - a opportunity to admire and talk about the sensational vehicles on display with out being distracted by gimmicks or high entry prices. The AJD committee comprises a core group of five car nuts, and events are run on a not-for-profit basis, with all money raised (once expenses are taken out) going to charity. For Sydney, it’s just $15 to enter your car, and spectators are allowed free entry (although we will ask for a gold coin donation at some point during the day for the charity we choose). Which cars are eligible to enter? It should first be noted that the AJD committee votes on every car that enters – your application is reviewed and then either accepted or rejected. Don’t let this discourage you from entering! Just make sure you have good pics of your car ready so we can see if we can work with it. We’re looking for: Pre-1985 classics – AJD Adelaide has quickly established a reputation for being the premier show for classic Japanese cars, and we’re really pushing to see what Sydney has to offer. Even if it’s a barn find, partly restored or in poor condition, we love our classics and would love to have you come along. Clean original cars – when was the last time you saw a mint original S13 Silvia? Exactly! Last year we had a clean original Datsun 200B with period accessories that looked fantastic. Modified cars – anything from mild mods right through to Time Attack-spec track cars. Grey imports or even Japanese cars sold here new by the manufacturer. Aussie-built Japanese cars such as R31 Skylines are decided on a case-by-case basis. Weird and wonderful – if you have something Japanese and quirky that makes the committee laugh and think you’re insane, then throw it in! Last year we had someone bring along a nice Toyota Coaster bus, it was hilarious! What we’re NOT looking for: Sex-spec cars – AJD is for cars that are more likely to feature in Zoom than Hot 4s. If your stereo has a higher output than your engine, then you’re probably in trouble. Lambo doors are out, dinner platter wheels are out, neons and white leather trim are borderline too, depending on the application. We have a ‘thing’ for cars that have a WOW factor for their engineering, not for how they look. Our theory is that we want to cater for the kinds of cars that other shows like Auto Salon wouldn’t normally accept. Advertising - no banners will be allowed, aside from the AJD one that stands out the front of the show. Flyers will be allowed under windscreens (with prior permission from the AJD committee), and cars may have stickers advertising businesses or products, but no other forms of advertising are permitted. Contact us about it if you're not sure whether you meet our rules or not. Chains or fencing (or anything else that prevents spectators from getting close to your vehicle) - if you want to keep your bonnet closed that's fine, but if you're that precious about your paintwork, you will need to decide if displaying your vehicle is worth the risk. If the owner of a $750K Toyota 2000GT can display his car without roping it off, then you can too! Segregation - no club displays will be allowed, and while we will be reasonable about keeping people together if they all arrive together, don’t get the sooks on if you end up getting parked away from your mates - the aim of the day is to meet new people and respect what they've done with their cars, not hide away in a corner with your mates. How to enter: Everything is done online via our website http://www.alljapanday.com.au Make sure you have your credit card or PayPal details on hand, and a DECENT photo of your car on file before you begin applying. You will receive an email to confirm your application has been received if you’ve done it correctly. Later on you will get an acceptance email if your car has made the grade. Entries are now open, so get cracking! IF YOU ENTERED BACK IN MAY THEN YOUR ENTRY IS ALREADY ACCEPTED AND WE WILL SEND OUT YOUR ENTRANT PACK AGAIN. IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT TO THIS EVENT, THEN LET US KNOW AND WE CAN REFUND YOUR ENTRANT FEE.

    +1 for the ae86 forums. The good thing is the offsets that fit our cars really well are considered too 'weak' for them, so you can grab a bargain every now and then when they upgrade to super-wide stuff.
