I have started a project for restoration of Datsun 120y 1979 model (B310), and already purchased the project car. And now I am in phase of sourcing the crucial parts before proceeding with the rebuilding and restoration works.
The most challenging part right now for me is to get a nice and clean dashboard (the higher grade version) which has Center console vents. Currently the dashboard installed in the car has two major problems:
1- The vehicle was base grade, thus it didn't have AC option nor the center vents - (the center vents space is sealed with cover from factory)
2- The part of Heater Finisher (Control panel for vents and blower) is missing along with the cables and knobs.
I am planning for a very high quality restoration, and without a proper and fully functioning dashboard this wont be possible. If someone here can assist in getting a complete dashboard or atleast the missing parts in my current dash(as listed in point 2 above) I will be very thankful.
