Re: Around Waynos house

I liked reading the last few pages of this thread again about the snow flakes. :lol: So I went to the Home Depot on 83rd st to get more of them lights, but they didn't have any in stock when I asked about them, but the guy said they had 10 of them at the Jantzen Beach store so off I went, I got ther...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

Lets keep in mind here that I am not the greatest body man, I suppose if I took the time and started sanding on these bumperettes I could make them a lot smoother, you know like sanding with 800 or 1000 grit sand paper, I used 320 grit on the orbital sander and 400 grit with my hands but I didn't sp...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

No clear yet, I will wait till they are both done with the chrome paint and clear coat them at the same time. That chrome paint dries in 15 minutes, it is made with Isopropyl Alcohol, Acetone, Ethyl Acetate, Propane, and N-Butane, I suppose there is some paint in there also, but most these ingredien...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

So I see a couple places that came out dull, I re-sprayed them without ant significant improvement, I will let it dry now. I also sprayed another coat of black gloss on the other one as the end did not come out shiny, I will let it dry for a few days now like suggested online before applying the mir...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

That's not likely to happen even if someone wanted to give me one. If I could find a WPL in a wrecking yard I would likely try to get the top from the front doors back to make a canopy for the NL320 to kinda make it look like a V320, I was the second guy on a list for one locally, but Hogie called t...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

Are you still planning to do a complete rear end swap to a newer, wider model? I keep thinking about that, I should do it that way but have an issue, you see to get the cab/box to look straight while looking down both sides I had to shift the rear of the box to the side, now it is not really center...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

This is starting to remind me of one of those antique plastic dealer promo model that the guys at the swap meet keep on display in cases. Very cool, Wayno. So you think it looks like a toy, well it's my toy. :lol: First issue was the wheels/rims were hitting the calipers on the front, so I took the...

Mounted the wheels today, also cleaned the top half of the tank and undercoated it. https://i.postimg.cc/nc9GW3FV/001.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/3w1XG6B1/002.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/hjG91rZB/003.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/tTmFSx8V/005.jpg I tapped on the hubcaps for a while until they looked mostly str...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

As I mentioned before, I am my own worst enemy, I tried to mount my tires on the rims with the white wall inserts I bought just for this several years ago and these damned tires would not go on the rims straight, the bead would not mount evenly on the lips of the rims, the tires have this line that ...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I painted the rims and tailgate today, the rims turned out good, tailgate turned out alright, I am not patient enough for bodywork and paint.

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I thought I had everything ready to paint and I looked at the tailgate and the primer was not sticking in a few places on that now, I believe the temperature outside is playing a part in this, the parts are warm when I take them outside to paint them, the primer is also warm, and when I finish primi...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I forgot to mention that the primer has stuck to all the rims this time, they are ready for paint, so is the tailgate, I might try painting them tomorrow or the next day. My cat is weird, where ever I put that white wall ring is where the cat curls up and sleeps, it can be in the middle of the floor...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I was kinda hoping to have this done before the end of the year, but things are going slowly with all the mistakes I have been making, having to do them over and over again is not helping my attitude, I still have to start on the interior.
I need to start on the U320 and get it done also.

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

According to what I have read the glossier the black the better the result, one time the POR15 was shiny after it dried for me, all the rest of the times it was dull, the one time I painted them with gloss black it was way shinier than the best result with the POR15, so POR15 to get it smooth for th...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I am my worst enemy, I had the bumperettes perfect and six hours later I touched one, so I thought put another coat on it and don't touch it. Well now I have to start over again, but every time I start over they are smoother and look better, what I need to do is work more making money and not be aro...

Re: 1963 Datsun 320 kingcab

I gave up and sand blasted the rims from where the hubcaps mount to the outer lip, I tried sanding again and a different primer and it was even worse, the problem is once I blew threw the primer I applied there was not much left to sandblast, one rim had some white paint and it took longer to do tha...
