Takes a bit to get me excited about anything other than a Zed but this does it. Much more than a 'restore and bolt on the goodies' job, great work and it shows  :)

Beautiful, love your attention to detail.

thanks :) i want to do these old cars justice.

 

It looks incredible, what kind of reaction do you get when driving it? I'd imagine it turns quite a few heads.

Many broken necks haha. Everywhere i go i get people out the window or coming up for a chat.

 

It looks very very nice. Greta job.

Bet you get lots of offers to take here of your hands!!!!

Jeff

Thanks :) never the right offer though :P

Wow, great looking K. They are not my favourite car but your one looks impressive. It's been completed to such a high quality which makes all the difference.
Out of interest how was the camera fixed to the car? It seems to move about in relation to the body.
I guess you had a midget on a skateboard holding on to the bumper.

camera is fixed via suctions caps and this is the camera i use http://www.dji.com/product/osmo. pretty cool piece of gear but still need to sort out some settings

Cheers :) i was goin to do this to a 240z but i bought this at the time instead. still prett keen to get  a 240z or a 260z 2 seater and do the same.

That first long trip can be a little worrying but is such a great moment.
Glad nothing major went wrong.

Scott I hope you won't take this the wrong way, but your valve cover lets down your whole engine bay. Is there some kind of ironic reason why everything else was water blasted and cleaned and re-zinc'd but you left the valve cover looking like that?

 

I just think water blasting it would lift the appearance of the whole engine bay.

Was unsure what i wanted out of the cover Gav. I do have a few spare so will get one blasted down the track but i do have something on order from Japan which should be turning up soon, just arrived at my sister's place and she'll send it over with some other stuff i had to leave behind  8)

Fair enough, it just seemed odd to me that you went to so much effort and attention to detail and yet that valve cover looked like it did when you started :).

I was thinking the same thing. Looking forward to seeing what cover the car ends up with.

Will gives these the usual pull apart and restore but i'm stuck if i should tune these for the L24 or just wait till the L28 but i have no idea when i will get to build that :(

Hey Scott,

 

So is that 120HP at the wheel out of the L24 with Triple Mikuni's on it?

 

I also went to the website I spotted in your photo.

http://www.vintagecraft-e-za.com/

 

Looks like you bought a jetting kit that comes with tools etc..is that right?

 

Kakimoto valve cover looks nice.

Cheers scottyB :)

 

Gav, it made 120hp one 3 screw Su's im currently running. He reckons there is another 10/15hp to be made if i richin it(afr seem fine to me) up but i think my stock headers are holding it back.

 

Wanting to find some 34mm chokes for the mikuni's as i decided i want to run them on the L24 now till i sort a 28 build.

 

And yes i bought them. He sells them from yahoo as well.

Need to get a new jet one as i already broke it :( so will order 2 and just make sure to loosen them up first as one was fine and the other was way to tight.
