  1. 1973 240Z Restoration - You Say Good Bye, I Say Hello

    Projects are always a fun way to keep our minds thinking, dreaming, and working towards a goal.  Our 1973 Datsun 240Z restoration has approached the finish line and all of our efforts have paid off - this is the final chapter in the book of The Green Machine/Baby Hulk Restoration Blog.  Over the course of this Datsun 240Z's stay with us, we have serviced nearly every aspect of it's being.  From the early stages of a non-running L24, to removing all the cancer & blemishes from the body, to reassembling and redressing in new finished surfaces, we have enjoyed restoring this all original Datsun 240Z.

    It's time to break out the bug spray!  In the middle of winter, this isn't normally something that immediately comes to mind.  But now that we have the 1973 Datsun 240Z reassembled, it is time to spend a little bit of sweat and effort working through and killing all the bugs.

  3. 1973 240Z Restoration - Wrapping Up The Exterior

    With the restoration of this 1973 Datsun 240Z, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel – both figuratively and literally. Some light may be coming from all of the beautiful exterior lights and lenses that have been mounted into place. Or it could also be that the “bright-work” is affixed to the car again and those shiny chrome surfaces beautifully reflect the shop lights and sunshine off its mirror finish. Or, literally, it could be because we are seeing the end of the project approaching. Either way it is a good thing to see this Datsun 240Z looking more and more like a complete car.

  6. 1973 240Z Restoration - Body, Prep, & Paint

    When looking at this 1973 Datsun 240Z that we are restoring, the “Incredible Hulk” would be a good name - if only the Datsun 240Z wasn’t light, nimble and have a personality that is quite the opposite of the “Hulk”. But as we look across the shop, we can't help but smile at the thought of that alter ego each time we see this green.
