  5. Well I figured its time to put up a project thead since I have been on here for years and never got around to it...If anyone recognises it please fill me in on any history or pics of previous lives.. My first car was a Stanza (couldnt afford a 1600) and the old man had it since new, after having several late model V8s I still wanted a 1600. Found 1 on ebay ,no one bid ,so I rang after auction went to have a look.The only rust was rear quarters already paint striped to show all.To my suprise came with all glass ,bumpers complete interior and had engineers report for ca18 mod..Snapped it up for a very good price. That was several years ago , since then i have been buying parts for the rebuild not being allowed to start till we bought our house..Well we got it complete with 2 1/2 car garage Time to start the datto
  6. Finnally a bit has been done lately, found my datto under a pile of house reno stuff, Struts sorted, rear brakes almost complete, few more bits came in, pics up soon. Can i run braided fuel line from front to back? What type of lift pump can you guys recommend? (underfloor surge tank) or is gravity enough? Again thanks in advance
