Ok, so I have now stripped the whole body down to bare metal, and spent a heap of time getting the glue from the interiors sound deadening off.

Here is the latest vid.

P.S. Sorry about the shaky video, I will endeavour to fix this for future updates.

These videos are great Jeff, keep 'em coming. Hellva job. Too bad you didn't have a shop assistant to follow you around with a shop vac to try to abate that 'snow'

Is that your wiper fluid reservoir? Also what did you use to remove the sound deadening material?

Jeff nice job. Just went threw the same thing a few months back. I'm still chasing all the dust around the shop. Not worrying about it any more until the project is finished. Keep the great updates coming.

When I first started using the grinder I taped the shop vac to the side of it, but it didn't really do much so I just gave up. I have a plan to go around with a blower and a big extractor fan to agitate the dust and hopefully extract it all, but as mentioned. Not until I have finished the whole job.

No, the wiper fluid reservoir it the thing under that....

To get the glue off, I was just sitting in there for a few hours rubbing away with thinners on a rag. Very tedious, but hopefully it will look good when it is all done.

Absolutely. I had a mask along with eye and ear protection. Not a fun job but at least it is done.

I didn't want to, but I have decided that now I am going to remove all the wiring as well. I was going to just mask around it but now I have gone this far I may as well suck it up and go the whole hog.

I have just been posting to YouTube at the moment. To be honest I have never had anything to do with Vimeo. Maybe I should give it a look.

Great vid Jeff. That looks like a ton of hard work. Looking forward to seeing how you progress. Do you have a timeframe or is this a hobby project.

I don't have a set time frame, but I am trying to spend a full day a week on the car. I obviously have a lot ahead of me, but the getting the body done is first and I hope that will be done in a couple of months.

Once that is done then I will tackle the engine. I hope to get it running and back on the road, and then I will go back and tackle the interior after that.

Jeff.

Rebuilding a 2.7 with pulled studs will cost what you can buy a sound 3.0 for. Add some more and you've got a 3.2. Then the fun really begins.

I have thought seriously about it. The issue I have is finding an 3.0 or 3.2 engine in Aus, and then running the risk of having to rebuild that anyway. Or do I rebuild the 2.7 and then I know I have a fresh engine...

I am not really after outright power to be honest. I have owned a bunch of high powered Turbo Nissans in the past, and I found I always preferred to get the most out of a less powerful car, rather than just hang on for the ride. 200-250hp max would be plenty for my mind (although I wouldn't try to get anywhere near that from the 2.7), but it would be nice to have that from a nice reliable power plant that can do it day after day at the track.

I am keeping my eyes open though

Jeff.

Thanks guys. I am enjoying making them (although I now appreciate how much time it takes to edit videos ).
