Customs by Miguel came highly recommended by Les Cannaday at Classic Datsun Motorsports. After meeting Miguel for the first time I knew immediately why, he was a straight shooter. Miguel charges and honest wage for his work and is truly a master of his craft. Best of all, you can see the passion in his eyes. It is not all the time that you meet a body man who takes the time to understand the scope of a project and what end outcome the customer is aiming for.
Les and I arrived at Miguel's shop around 4:30 PM to drop off the Z car. Miguel's shop turned out to be very small, but seemingly a very affective operation.
Miguel was no rookie to race car restoration. This trick old Datsun 710 race car was in a mid-project phase, having the rear passenger quarter panel repaired from road racing damage. This was an older restoration and Les asked Miguel to make it "new," but not "too new." Hopefully we will see it out at the races again soon!
Les, Miguel, and I (right to left) began the inspection of the body and parts. The great thing about Les is that is not only a true expert when it comes to Datsuns, but really takes the time to dive deep into a project by giving it his full attention. Here you see the three of us discussing how the fender will be fitted to the body.
We diligently and carefully unloaded all the part including C-Production front fiberglass fenders and rear flares. Always nice to see fresh parts!
Until we meet again...
