datsun 1200 coupe

Post by gxcoupe on Fri 17 Dec 2010, 10:54 am

this is my datsun 1200 coupe that im building to replicate the real one that im currently building
http://datsun1200.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=36519&forum=9.
Both model and car will be painted in r34 gtr bayside blue, both will be fitted with s14 sr20's and will have custom grey recaro interior and will be fitted with superlite wheels.
I made a chassis for the model using a chassis from a datsun 1600 cut down to suit as the original was battery op. and only had half an interior so i user an rx3 interior tub but have sourced parts from partsbox to complete interior.

Great looking build up. I have the same kit but will be building it as the kit with a few different bits added.
