    Default reliable datsun shop???

    whats up with all the horrible NW shops? ive been let down with bills datsun shoppe thats located locally here in Portland Oregon and I also thought Datsun Parts LLC was reliable. But the more I search the more crap I find. Im just looking for a shop to maybe do some head work on my p79 or replace some body panels that have rust. I dont need much else, Im very mechanically inclined. I know ztherapy, they rebuild my SU carbs and did a FINE job. But thats the only service they provide and the body guy they know went mechanical. So is there any specialist shops left in the NW or body shops that are worth a damn????

    I've stopped by there and they do seem like good guys. What kind of work did you have done? And what kind of work did you ask the other shops to do? Without details, it's just aimless venting.

    Better to be nice, no one is going to volunteer their services if they think you're hard to please.

    I usually do all my own work unless I need a machine shop. Someone recommened bills datsun and I talked to the guy for 30min over the phone.

    Seemed like a nice guy, someone who I thought could help me take my car to the next level.

    All it took was a simple search on community.ratsun.net of "bills datsun jock" and come up with plenty of bad reviews and consumer bewares with pictures of ****ty engine builds and things he did to screw the datsun community. Honestly it just pissed me off. If you wanna know the details, search for yourself.

    Same thing with Datun parts LLC. Someone recieved a n47 head from them with subpar work.


    I dont need someone to voluneer their services. Business is business and ill pay the price for quality.

    There is a shop in VA called Datsun Spirit, they seem legit and have a passion for datsuns. They build 400hp NA L series strokers. The guy is from the motherland.


    Oh beaverton automachine, I had them press bearings for me. Ive had them rebuild my driveshaft and also had a cylinder head from a 2003 lexus is300 that he blueprinted for me. The machine shop is great and I will probably ask them to do my head work for my datsun.
