Hi mate, the cheese and kisses got the CTP insurance to day so hope to get reg next week in time for easter. The only problem I have is it is not running to good as when it comes to tuning engines I am hopeless. I will most certainly come for a run down to your part of the world as soon as I can. There are some great drives in that part of the country. 8)

Hey everyone cars at the sand blasters.  The bonnet has a few rust holes in the front and a ding that had a fair bit of bog hiding it.  The car should be heading to to painters next week while Im leaving to go on holidays for 3 weeks tomorrow night.  There is always something happening when i go away and all i can think of is the project sitting at home and not the holiday!  Found a couple of photos my mate had of when we were taking the engine out.

Hope you all had a good Easter

I will have to see how the paint looks when i get home and put some pics up

See you all in 3 weeks i hope

Well its been nearly a year of my car sitting at one panel beaters. So i decided to pick it up and go somewhere else and he wasn't to pleased but he had it for a year and kept putting every one else in front of it. Dropped it off yesterday arvo at the new guy and when i went around at lunch time today he had already started.  :)

So finally i can get the ball rolling again on the z.

The panel beaters moving along. Its great to finally see some progress. He has put it up on a rotisserie and removed the chassis rails as they were pretty rusty an knocked up and split on some edges. The underside of the car looks like its had a hard life like its been in a few rallies. So he asked me to make some new rails for it as it would be quicker and more cost effective for me. The one in the pic was the better rail but this was after he had knocked it all back into shape.

Rails look good. Color looks good. Car looks good. Orange seems to be the new in thing for Z's! Can definitely see why.

Hi, great work I'm not sure how to phrase this but what colour Orange did you go for?

Is it the original orange or a different one.

Hes had a couple of weeks off but now he's gone onto the rest of the body and the only rust was to be found in the fuel filler area. Which was pretty good i thought  :) getting closer can't wait to see the colour on the body.
