I don't know if this would be of much help, but yesterday what I did was get some old rags and glue them onto where the boot closes on my father's KB Laser hatch. I haven't been in it since, but I assume the chronic boot rattle should be gone now, and this time the 'mod' is not visible from the outside - unlike the time when I closed the hatch on top of a towel. hehe

ILS ya funny bugger

HAHAHA look at the 120Y Badge

Whats with them ILS?

My family used to own one, a mustard colour with a bog and rust coloured pearl through it....It really was a good car though, not exactly fast but cheap as shit to run, reliable and apparently handled alright (although the old man did some work on it)

If I can find some pics I'll post them.

Im looking for one atm to use as a runabout!!! :) Mind you, Im datto mad. I also got a Stanza sitting in the shed, thats getting a blown 2.4L Navara motor....hoping to run 12's! Thats if the motor fits, havent got around to dropping it in the bay as yet.....if not.....SR20 turbo....hehe

Long live the DATSUN

Re: ILS

Wow a modified Stanza. Well Sp33dy was telling me that there was a modified 200B at "EasterNats" with a 3.0 litre six - the same one as in his Skyline. I thought that the resulting car should be called the 300B. (the 200B with 100 more mistakes. hehe)

As for the 120Y badge, it was taken from a dumped white coupe in shocking condition. The point being made is that the KB is the 120Y of the '80s - ultra reliable, economical, tinny, etc.

The KB looks different now since I tried some experiments on it in my spare time. Anyone interested in the conversion can visit: ford.i8.com/tmp2/index.htm

Re: ILS

Jus put some silicon inbetween the frame of the bootlid and the bootlid itself. Guaranteed to work!
