Obviously new here been looking around for a while for a decent 240/260z that i could rebuild from the ground up...
Was a bit of a journey looking at a few that had large amounts of rust and semi complete but ended up buying one that someone had already started tearing down and fixing a lot of the rust from an old fella out in Seven Hills.
The plan is to get it back to original as best i can with maybe a couple of upgrades a long the way, sadly as it sits now it will probably stay till early next year due to building a new house, but was lucky enough to be able to buy it now rather than when the wife and I move out.
I'll be doing my best to document the build as i go so to start things off a small list of what has already been done:
- New front rear shocks/springs
- New bushings all the way around
- Dash re-skinned, gauges refreshed and fixed
- Front and rear bumpers re-chromed, Grill re-chromed
- Auto Trans rebuilt
- Starter motor, Alternator, Compressor, Condenser, Heater Core/Box, Radiator and oil cooler all rebuilt
That's about all i can think of right now.
The down side is he started to paint the car in acrylic red... :-\
The positives is it has the original engine and gearbox, the original colour was red but I don't think i can bring myself to paint it red again... still undecided on a colour though so we shall see, its a while off yet.
So my first step will be to take everything out of the car and tear out the sound deadening on the floor, than off to get blasted again to take off all the acrylic than 2 pack primed so it can sit till i move out into my new place with a bigger garage
Just a couple of photos of how it sits now, I've tried to shrink them as much as possible so hope they turn out alright.
