    Wow, what a cool project! Certainly didn't expect to see anything about a Datsun Laurel on here! :) Did the Cedric replace that?

    That picture of the windscreen scuttle prior to restoration made me chuckle, looks like there wasn't left much holding the windscreen in at that point!! Fair play that it carried you all the way home when you purchased it! :)

    The Cedric ran along side the Laurel but was more an upmarket car. The 3rd and especially the 4rth generation Cedrics are lovely looking motors with beautiful lines.

    Does that mean the 21 goes un-finished?

    Is the Datsun now fully road legal?

    You have certainly saved her from the scrapper mate, that rot looked bad, the guys must have worked real hard to get it back into shape.

    You will be delighted when you can fire her up, and take her out a long cruise.

    Same with the 21, didn't realise that was actually ready!

    When are you on/offshore, I can pop over with the old MG ZS diesel daily driver and check them out?

    Epicly great - I love a classic Datsun, takes me back to my childhood. Loads of the local asians used to drive Datsuns until they dropped. And in Rochdale in the 70's and 80's - they where everywhere.

    Hats off to a remarkable save.
