Project datto: update

So why no real updates on the Datsun 240Z. Well what started as engine bay cleaning, escalated very quickly. At tje moment I started DIY zinc plating on bolts, brackets and stuff :-O


EDM content…my E36

No idea if you guys like it or not. But as my JDM projects evolve quite slowly at tje moment, I might as well post some pics of my newest money pit. It’s a “BMW E36 328i Clubsport” wich I bought a few weeks ago from the Netherlands.

The day I brought it home:

Project datto: slow progress

So just a little update. The engine bay is almost ready for metal treatment and rust prevention and will then get some new paint. I chemically stripped quite some areas, mechanically stripped the more critical areas around the welds…

Good things first, I haven’t found anything bad, rust or super dodgy repairs…

The red/brown thin you can see on the pics is the original Nissan primer wich is dark red

Just a few more hours of scratching before I’m gonne treat the little rust spots with Kovermi rust converter, apply multiole coats of Brantho Korrux (rust prevebtion, primer and paing all in one). 

But the remaining question is: glossy black or blue? No idea! Time will tell
