19th April 2009

Ok, next Sunday the car would have been sitting in the same place, 5767 days without having moved an inch.

So you all know the story from the intro I posted, and now the long dance begins, this morning I went to the garage where the "Z" has been stored for the past 16 years and took some pics on my mobile phone, not the best but will give everyone and idea about it's condition in general (Have posted them in the gallery section for now until I can figure out how to attach them to a post).

Included is a pic of the L20 injected turbo motor in it, its going on Ebay today, looks like I have tracked down a rotisserie and some 45DCOE Webers for it also.

Next weekend I'll have it towed home to a cleaned out garage at my place and the strip down begins.

I will add pics as the process continues.

Hopefully I will also track down pics from its pre-storage days which Im turning the house upside down to find ATM.

Stay tuned.

as i said i am building an l28et so far i have the the turbo exhaust manifold and distributor
so i need the oil lines, water lines, sump,
I am not sure if the l20et inlet manifold is any better than the standard l28e inlet is, or if
the l20et ecu will run the l28et.
This is not so important as i will be ruining an aftermarket ecu eventually any way

A thought...

Why not take the whole unit, freight wont be too much from Melb to SA and youll have it all  to play with and sort out... and onsell what you dont need

Guy's, I'm more than happy to disuss payment terms, am hoping the money I get will go towards part of the purchase of Webers and would rather see it go to someone on here who's after a set up like that, so if you are interested just drop me a line and we can discuss.

At one stage I was thinking of taking the original Zed's motor I have stored away and transferring the turbo set up across, but I really want to build a classic ZG looking vehicle up like the one pictured below but in Pearl red with Black and beige leather interior.

Cheers

John

Ok just an update and a few pics to prove the process on Rose is underway.

As Mick has posted, the old L20 is now cross border in S.A. awaiting its next ride transplant, here you can see my youngest Marcus who spent the Saturday helping remove the motor, these aint just show shots, this kid is so into the idea of this ride coming back to life that he really got into it, and copped a ring spanner in the head for his efforts at one stage..........lol

Anyhow, the motor's out and I've managed to source some parts in the meanwhile, (X1) 40dcoe from California, and (X2) from Canada, all up, US$400,00 shipped and a manifold off Smurf on the forum.

Also a front and rear set of screen moulds also form the U.S. paid US$10.50 for them but shipping due to the packaging size meant US$125.00 shipped.

Now just need a set of door trims/cards and the inner sill/carpet garnishes and some other smaller odd's and ends, and the G-Nose of course.

next Saturday, the strip down begins and by the following weekend should be on the rotisserie and ready for the soda blasters, there are going to be some cold weekends spent in the garage.

Found a complete packaged rear bar including over-riders stored away in plastic wrap, been in the basement at Mom's for over 20 years, so may have them up for sale soon along with the spare rear screen mould set.

Cheers

John

I saw a late model Honda road bike a few weeks ago in this pearl red which had so much depth it looked spectacular, the probe I have at the moment used to be emerald green and I re-sprayed it in a recent Ferarri color called "Rubino Micalazotto" but it has nowhere near the vibrancy of the Honda road bike color.

Im hoping this along with a full leather interior and dash along the lines of this pic I found will work well.

Have a trimmer called Pat who owns and runs Sunshine motor trimmers who has won a lot of custom awards for his interiors who will be doing the re-trim, I used him 15+ years ago on a lot of the restoration work I did in my shop, his work is faultless.

Your thoughts?

Your thoughts? 


Don't get a wood steering wheel like that, and don't get 240Z embossed in the door panels either. Thats so tacky.

No wasnt going too, I want the trims stiched up in the same pattern as the original 260 trims and will be using a black wheel, the pic is just a basic idea of what I want to do, there will be differences, at the moment the car in the pic looks a bit over cooked, I'd rather it was toned down and incorporated black and tan similar to the balance BMW's have with their interiors.
