Like some of us said on page 1 of this thread?

Is there a problem with someone getting as much information as they can to make an informed decision?

Exactly my thinking. I will more than likely go ahead with this idea in the near future.
If its too enrageing for you to reply, you really don't need to. Six shooter had me 100% covered and now the information is out
There for others to view as well.

Nothing wrong with getting the info. But why are carbs suddenly this miracle cheap solution?

Robbie was down at the Classic Japan car show last week end asking all the guys lots of questions, this is more where he's made the decision.
Crazy I know... Imagine actually talking with people rather than looking at a computer screen or mobile device!

Ahh yes, something every newbie should be encouraged to do. Come down have a chat and meet people in person. Sometimes ideas and things get lost in translation over the Internet. Meeting people and seeing different cars and different builds can help solidify ideas.

That's exactly what Robbies dad was saying about each of the Z's their. "They are all different, you'd think that there would be a formula that works and everyone would do that".
Truth is, there is no formula as everyones requirement, taste and budgets are different. And that's whats so great with these cars.

There are recipes that are all very close to the same though...

16" or 17"Watanabes (or similar), with ZG flares, L28ET or LSx swap, MSA type 1, 240Z bumpers, BRE style wing, Toyota front brakes or Willwood (AZC), 280ZX rear disc conversion or Wilwood (AZC), R200 with Z31 CV conversion, on coil overs.

Honestly, I don't see a whole lot of variety when it comes to how these cars are modified. Sure there is the occasional exception, but for the most part if they aren't stock you can bet there is a majority of common recipe parts involved.

exactly why i am in the process of fitting a BF falcon dashboard, HSV guard flutes, twin 15" subs, pantera hatch with TV moulded into the underside, 22" chrome spinners and 3.8L buick v6 engine conversion with 460LE shift kitted auto box.
Personally i think the underbody neons and full length body graphics will really set it off.

Its going to be epic!!!

You forgot the DVD screens in the doors, and back of the seats (even in a two seater)
