What's the deal with your wheel arches? They have some sort of weird lip on them yet the holes for the flares have been drilled?


Believe flares are being fitted and the lip is probably a guide point for fitting them, rather than just hacking up the guards and leaving a rough edge.

Oh so it's just a line drawn with a sharpie? It looks like it went in and had some kind of fold there, optical illusion. Now cut those suckers off and do it properly!

The line is a factory line on gtr's as seen here.

I have gone to alot of detail and copied this technique. Most people just hack and weld and be done with it. I even made a new inner arch to match the quarter

Aahuh! I didn't think it was just a drawn on line lol. Epic work recreating that detail, I can appreciate the work that went into it!


At least someone noticed your efforts!  :D

Nice, did you repaint the carbs that silver colour or just water blast them to clean them up nicely?

How did you get all the fasteners, screws, bolts, linkages yellow zinc/chromate plated and keep everything in order? Or didn't you bother trying to keep everything in order?

This is the only reason I haven't yet disassembled mine after ordering a rebuild kit from ZTherapy, also wondering if you opted to re-bush the throttle shafts?

Oh and by the way does anyone know what the screwable piece on the balance tube is for? It has an adjustment screw on it that controls how much air is sucked in, I've got 1 on my 240z and someone a while ago told me they were good to have. I'm not sure if it has any benefit so was thinking of removing it, I can't help but think it's part of some emission control system from later S30z's like 260z onward?

Got them water blasted, have had other stuff done and i love the process.
I keeped one carb complete and used that as a guide and re installing all the other parts and pulled that one apart as i went.
There was only 2 different length screws (only prob 3mm lenght difference) and everything else only really has 1 area it can go. Hardest part was the the spring area as there is a heap of parts in such a small area.
I didn't bother with the throttle shafts yet. Unsure if this will bite me but wont know till i try and get it running.
Price wise it has only cost me about $300 to do the rebuild.

Your car is looking absolutely superb Scott, congratulations!

I notice that although you have made some very tasteful upgrades, you have stayed with a standard exhaust manifold. You weren't tempted to fit extractors?

Love watching this build and the perfection, amazing that these cars were not a big seller in their day but now have gained so much interest, in a funny sort of way they were a euro Japanese car but not long after this Nissan seemed to lose its way? Welcome to the world of boring cardigan cars, lynton
