Thanx for nice reply.  The girl is my daughter helping to plan the project.  I currently have the original L24 engine, but I will convert to Lexus V8 when the engine is ready. 

I actually live in Haugesund on the west coast, 450km from Oslo

More pics will come

Update:  The car is now ready for the street. Had to convert it to fairly original shape to meet the norwegian MOT-requirements for registration. Here are some pics of the car in MOT-approved condition.  Will get the norwegian plates next week:)

I like it with the original hubcaps. Reminds me of the model cars you buy.

Good to see the Z has the garage ;)

Really smooth looking car. I have a friend going to live on Norway for a year and she's looking for a car, she says they all seem to be quite expensive over there. I told her she should buy a z but I doubt that will happen ;)

Same here, I think you can tell by the front Grille the RA23 is slightly different in that area. I personally like the TA22 style most.

great car!
lots of attention to detail.
Did Jan @jancarfactory do the interior?
looks very familiar. I have been in contact with him about doing some bits and pieces but communication is slow.

Easiest way to tell the RA from the TA is the lights in the front of the fender where it meets the bumper. TA they are the indicators (orange) and are sloped on an angle. RA they are side lights (Clear) and are vertical. Well, at least that's how I do it. I had an RA28 and my brother had a TA22.

Nice Z.  ;D
