Thought I would bling up the engine a bit so blasted the rocker cover and painted it. As always happens, I was in too much of a hurry and got a few runs so will have to blast it again and paint again. Should look good. A bit different from the usual black or red or polished, but will go with the car colour. {Green and gold} 8) Plus a cool pic of the bus. 8)

Wasn't too sure on your colour choice earlier.
But on the car, with the grenn contrast. It works quite well.
Good job  ;)

If the black part of the battery was silver it would mirror the motor colour scheme!

The black bit on the battery is the clamp. Might get it chromed one day as you suggest. Only trouble is the next battery will probably be a different colour. 8)

Well the ironing board turned up today from MSA and now I have a bit of work in prepping and painting. Nothing ends when you own a Z. The cheese and kisses is not impressed as you can tell but it [the car  ;)] will look better when I get around to fitting the metal rear louvre as well. The plastic one sticks out a bit too far when you add the board. Will paint the front spoiler at the same time to kill two birds with the one stone. 8)

Love the colour of your 2+2 realy suits it.
Something about that green on a z just seems to be right at home. Similar to as Zedevan's Z. Love it.

Nice work Peter

Though not sure about your ironing board.

Maybe it will be lot better once painted.

Enjoy the next step



Nissan just wait till you drive it!

Update on the ironing board. Well it had to go and is still up for sale. However, not to be put off by the wife, I bought a XY Falcon GT rear wing which after fitting to the Z the little lady is happy and I might add so am I. Being smaller than the MSA Z one it quite suits the Z. Still have to paint it and in two minds whether black or green. I will make a decision in the month or so but for now it can sit there naked. 8)

After putting up with my 10 foot paint job for so long I decided to do something about it. Was most likely told by Serpent what to do but it didn"t regester. Car looked good from 10 foot but the clearcoat had a lot of frosting and streaks so after looking at you tube, have started to rub the bus down with 2000 wet and dry then polishing. What a difference, it is shining like a lighthouse. Probably could go bit further back with the rubbing but being an amature painter, I am only going so-far with great results. The bus is looking great and I am happy with the new results and the best part, I did it myself. 8)
