Hi,

I have had this 1992 LWB sunny truck for over a year, I purchased it as a daily driver that needed body work and paint. I drove it for a wile be for doing a very quick 8 week resto of the body on it.

Details: JDM 1992 NISSAN 1200 SUNNY TRUCK LONG WHEEL BASE.
STOCK A12 ENGINE (FOR NOW)
5 SPEED 60A GEARBOX
LOWERED SPRINGS AND CAMBER IN THE FRONT
RESET SPRINGS IN THE BACK
14 x 6 RIVERSIDE WHEELS ALL ROUND
CLEAR OVER BASE 2 PAC RED
FENDER MIRRORS
TACHO DASH
STOCK SEATS ECT (FOR NOW)

BODY WORK DETAILS:

SO THE BODY WAS PRITTY DENTED WHEN I GOT IT AND THE PAINT WAS STUFFED. THE GOOD THING THERE WAS VERY LITTLE RUST ANLY SOME SURFACE STUFF.

ALL THE PANEL ARE THE ONES THE UTE CAME OUT OF THE FACTORY WITH, EXCEPT THE TAIL GATE. I REPLACED THIS BECAUSE THE OLD OWNER HAD RELPACED THE FACTORY ONE WITH ONE FROM AN EARLY DATSUN 1200 UTE, WHICH DIDN'T MATCH THE TOP ROPE RAIL.
I PURCHASE A NEW ONE FROM NISSAN FOR $500 WHICK WAS CRAP AS. SO THE THEN I FOUND A PERFECT AFTER MARKET ONE, THIS TOOK SO LONG AS MOST OF THEM HAVE PORE BUILD QULITY OR DENTS.
I STARTED THE BODY BY STRIPPING ALL THE PAINT AND OLF FILLER FROM THE PANELS.

WILL POST PHOTOS SOON.
