Notice: Caveat Re 1977 Bronze 280Z Lhd In Sa

Sun, 20/05/2018 - 07:50

Hi guys, so sorry to have to put this message up.

 

My 1977 280Z LHD (bronze colour) has become part of legal action.

Vehicle is unregistered and unroadworthy

This vehicle is NOT free title and can not be sold.

I value you your support and am disappointed that I have to post this message.

 

Kind regards

Stephen

240Z Airbox Intake Rubbers

Sat, 19/05/2018 - 19:32

Hey Folks,

 

Anyone know if Clarke rubber or similar has something suitable for the 240z airbox?

 

I can order these. But they are pretty expensive, so hoping a local alternative exists. It is just a rubber strip after all.

The Z31 Project - Race Car

Sat, 19/05/2018 - 11:51

Pics are always good so below are some taken with the engine and transmission still in which show the huge amount of space for big tyres in the wheel wells. Those are the race Hoosiers off the 280 which bolt straight up with no clearance problems, F 9" rims, R 9.5". I'm bloody rapt, so much space for bigger wheels and tyres.

The project itself should start next week with filling in the T top openings and adding some structural bracing across the top of the door openings.

 

Seeing that it's a turbo model the brakes look like they have Z32 rotors, just need some decent calipers. One thing I've learnt is that suitable brake pads are very important, proper race ones will withstand extreme temperatures and actually brake much better. Having stock rotors means that they are not expensive to replace too. The rear axles are second generation CV jointed and for the R200 diff a reasonably priced Quaife LSD centre is available. Keeping all the stock type suspension, the rear will be interesting, I have some fairly dramatic mods in mind to get the semi trailing arm setup working satisfactorily

 

So the project is going to be stock based except for the engine and auto trans.
