I'm posting up a few pics of the work I'm currently doing to Bruce's 240Z.
I've been hassling him for the last few month to let me at it - I didn't want to see it deterorate any further...
Bruce dropped it off mid last week & I've been doing a few hrs a day on it.

The current working list is as follows:
New P/S floor pan (rare sapres item).
New P/S chassis rail.
Re-fabricate the inner guard under the battery tray... (eeek!).
New Ferodo GT2 brake pads (the current Bendex's squeel like a 12yo, when cold...).
New waterpump.
New headgasket & reco the cyclinder head - I'll clean up the ports while I'm at it.

BTW, Bruce politly imformed me the other night that his username is actually 'SPA-master240' as he sells outdoor/portable Spa's for a living. NOT SPAM-aster240...

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SPA master, I always read it as spam master. That makes a lot more sense, I just thought you liked sending people emails about penis pills and Nigerian bank accounts ;)

Seams are sealed & I've just finished undercoating.
I'll be spraying the underside with 'deadner'. Bruce can then paint topcoat on the inside footwell himself.

New WP has been fitted, as have the new brake pads.
Oh, & I get the reco'd head back tomorrow...
Not much to go now!
