    They're all okay, but the left rear especially had been really messed up and will probably require a lot of work to straighten. The hood, door, and front fender are the same deal but less severe. The rear panel has been bent, broken in half and repaired with fiberglass, and the exhaust cutout has been hacked. I'm looking for pieces that aren't perfect, but are a better starting point than what I have to hopefully save me the time/money on bodywork and cut down on Bondo use.

    I'll be blasting the whole car before any paint, but I'm trying to plan ahead instead of the car being torn apart then having to search for pieces.

      Also, the damage does a good job of looking better in photos than real life, which I'm thankful for.

          Haha, love the Pagani exhaust. Whoever rendered that has some fun humor.

              I haven't visited this forum in ages. I actually haven't even driven my e30 touring in 6 years now....sitting in storage. Life gets in the way.

              Have to play when Datsun's are the topic...first love.

              By blue '71, have had is for 27 years. Lots of fun, track toy.

              And my silver '71 I built into a convertible about 15 years ago

                For a Datsun thread this one is very low on rust.

                  Maybe I should post a pic of my car in its current state then.

                        Thanks! I've had some rough ones, this is the cleanest by far. And by the way these things are skyrocketing in value, I believe I'll be keeping this one for life

                          This Z was beautiful but it was a new build and wasnt too happy at WOT. I blame the car being mad at the owner for buying cheap Webers lol

                          This Z on the other hand was pretty awesome... but I think I only took a pic of the motor haha
