Cheers guys! trent if you get that 2dr can can take aslong as you want. just itching to get it on the road now. moving house soon with a double garage which I’m stoked about. which means had to get the datto moveable to put on a trailer. here are some progress shots...

I was checking to see if the gutters had any rust and found all this spider rust luckily only surface

Image
Image

Came up really nice and not a spec of rust in the gutters

Image

Early Chrismas present came last week

Image
Image

Lower Sections rusted but easy to replaces, I was more worried about b pillars which are perfect

Image
Image
Image

Temporary b pillars so body doesn’t Distort, Thanks for the idea Baz. Wife and kids weren’t home so got stuck into Saturday morning

Image
Image
Image
Image

Image
Image

If your doing this conversion have to including fitting a drain section

Image

Temporary fitted both sides to line everything up

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Not looking pretty but after some panel Beating and welding should come up good. once i move house ill be looking for a l16 or l18 in running condition if anyone is selling?

I've always wanted to see the conversion done in detail, great work!

Now we just need someone to do it to a wagon next!

Thanks a lot guys! Always loved the look of 2drs but didn’t want to buy one built because I wanted to build one myself plus asking price would be way over my budget. thought about importing a rusted one but buying a car blind is never a good idea. so once I found out 2 and 4 doors pretty much have the same base at factory it was a no brainer to import some panels. Talked to couple people who have done the conversion saying it’s a walk in the park so began the search. after a lot of loose end emails and calls, finally found a guy on 510realm in Los Angeles who had the panels but no quarter windows and was willing to ship. Luckily Baz from Datsport came to the rescue and had quarter windows shipped to the guy in Los Angeles. Don’t know if you read this but thank a lot Baz and tRacy they are in awesome condition and well packaged. next job was to find an importer who didn’t want 2K plus to bring couple panels over. Found Peter Leahy Custom Imports in Brisbane very cheap and friendly. 10 weeks later finally here. a guy who I was emailing about the conversion sent couple photos showing how he done it so I had a good idea how I was going to fit them up. I’ll try take as many photos as possible. If anyone is looking at doing this conversion there’s a guy on 510realm selling doors, quarters and windows they look better condition than mine. Getting very hard to find someone who is willing to cut up a 2dr and most people are keeping their panels. thanks a lot for the comments will keep the photo coming.

Love this thread mate, great work on the two door.

I have a bog stock L18, currently sitting in my donor 1600 I'm open to selling. It's running fine but it has never been rebuilt in 40 years so it's starting to show all the usual signs of age. Would definitely be good for a rebuild
