72 240Z ZG tribute "The everchanging Z project" Christine

I think Silver cars really really need a nice interior colour to set them off.
Posted 03 February 2013 - 07:17 AM
But plans changed again. Going for more unique and as far as i know none like it in SA or possibly Au.
This car will be getting the rb26dett bit later down the track.
Color has been decided and bought to do engine bay insidethecar and under it. once painted will be revealed.
Will be flared, with some cool rims fender mirrors and few more goodies from Japan.
Still debating the sunroof saga.
Its a good sunroof but what do I do. It will delay the project quite a bit if i decide to get rid of it.

Genuine 15" Watanabe .10" at rear. Those rear tires are 295. They came off a zg. Cant wait for them to arrive.
Don't ask how much... Prob could have bought new set of simons for these. though these are better. just had to have them.

Nah very very cool. Did you go through jesse streeter?
Posted 04 February 2013 - 10:48 AM
Oh yeah! this is going to be awesome!
pfft should have bought 15x12 -54 and some Works flares.
Nah very very cool. Did you go through jesse streeter?
nah even these i think i be in trouble with the boys in blue. not a fan of works flares. too big.
Yeah Jesse is helping out. Its going to be a pretty big bill missus going to be upset
wheels alone are going to cost me over 2K landed no tires. the rest i think at least another 2K. I may be sleeping in the workshop for few months.

Awesome looking wheels mate, do they actually do them in 12" wide as thriller mentioned?
Cheers Alex, biggest ive seen so far were 12"
On watanabe website depends on what style i think largest are 12.
Though have seen 11.5" for rears pair only for 1.2k. Even 10" i think they will stick out on zg flares. May have to widen the flares lighly. No biggie.
295 rear tires on a 240 will look crazy.
Give the rb26 something to cry about down the track.

Im not sure if he tracks it so far i just sent him links on items and he buys them.
All the guys i know that used him did the same.
Now searching that term may be triky by yourself search engines do not repond well to normal alphabet so best to email and ask.
Hes very good and quick with replies.
Seen some cool stuff but prices are out of this world dont forget z cost lot more there so parts are lifted accordingly

"15x12 -51 4 or 5 110 or 114.3 8.6kg $715"
Streeter is a top guy. Wheels will take a bit less than three months from sending the link to them turning up at your door. Roughly $100 postage a wheel. Use something like importmonster.com.au looking for wheels. Z stuff is useless (waaaayyyy more expensive than here, U.S. ebay is good for that stuff) though it's fun to type in 'S20' or 'Z432' or whatever and see what comes up

Once rb26 is in i will see. Maybe s14 r33 or rx7 front rears either leave or upgrade to z32 r32 items. Not sure yet. Want to run abs once rb goes in. Its going to be daily so not requiring 50laps at bathurst or PI. So wheels will stay and brakes will be worked around them.
Also whatever engineer says. Don't see how hilux 4 spot with good pads and rear disk wont be adequate.
Will be running short nose gtr diff at back that has abs sensors. So fronts need to be upgraded to suit. Also may need to run twin piston at the back because of the abs modulator.

Since i let the cat out of the bag on color choice may as well post it here.
Here is color sample I painted up.
Yes it is Grande Prix Marron or 240zg maroon as most peps know it by.
So i guess most can see which direction this project is heading and why fat watanabe could only be on it and why lime didn't suit.

The FG falcon intercooler looks like a reasonable fit just to decide the orientation that works out best for L and RB later. Looks like a good cooler rated to 350kw bout what i need.
Also looks stock which me like.
Also one of the fairladyz badges arrived. Nothing better than a feel of a new part.
Im gona cry when i cut the z part off. :'(
Oh well must be done to replicate the "fairlady 240z" on ZG
More goodies please.
Oh I forgot picked up the replacemnt floor on weekend from rare spares. Looks like a good fit.
So at the moment got all the bits to do on the engine bay.
Building a storage/garden shed behind workshop so i can clean up my backyard so dont look like a wreck yard.
Also clean up the workshop. Once that is done finish blasting the front end. Weld te rails and rad support back on mount the car on rotisserie and blast the rest of it. Than enter the workshop for rust repairs and body work.

And got these too while i was at it for the early girl.cant neglect that one. She get upset.
Posted 15 February 2013 - 09:58 PM
zg hinges at a reasonable price.
And scored an r200 lsd 4.3 at a realy good price.
Though need 4 bolt driveshafts. So if someone has any floating around please let me know.
Also are 260z driveshafts same as 240. Besides fliping the moustache bar is there any other changes between r180 and r200 upgrade? Or best to get the 260 rear parts. Got a feeling 260 m bar is bit beefier.
After this weekend should be all back 100% working on the z. Nato is working hard on the rails so should be finished soon so i better get the rest of the car ready for it.
