In 2015 this beautiful dark green Datsun 240z was brought into Fourways Engineering for a restoration. As it was so original it was decided that a sympathetic restoration should be carried out rather than replacing all of the original parts with new ones. A full bare metal strip using a soda blaster was carried out in order to ascertain the quality of the shell and identify any accident damage or corrosion prior to painting. Once the body had been stripped it became evident that the metalwork was highly original with no corrosion or accident damage except for the two chassis rails underneath the car, which were rusty. The two new chassis rails were fabricated and the car was primed and painted on a ‘rotiseri’, after which the top was painted in base and clear and then the underside and engine bay were painted in two pack paint finish.
