I'm really digging those headers!


I seriously wouldn't care if I lost 10hp with those headers. They look sweet and add at least 50hp without the engine running. A set of tripples and I'm right. ;)

Regarding the smoke the L28's been blowing recently, I bought a compression tester today and each pot is pretty much at 120psi. I know this isn't bad but what would you expect from a low km engine........140psi?? I'll drain the fuel tank and start again with some cleaner fuel.

My carpet kit arrived today. Fairly happy with the quality and fit of most bits. The piece under the seat doesn't even remotely suit unless I've got something round the wrong way which is why I'm including some photos.  I've also got some photos of two longer sections which I can't really find a place for. They seem to have cut outs for the seat rails i think, but I thought that section was for vinyl.

I also ordered a carpet kit from Tru-fit. Not real sure on their reputation as there isn't too much info on here regarding good or bad mobs, plus I think these guys are fairly new.


So your behind the seat sections looked like mine originally?

Yep, I got mine from them too, I took them back to get them restiched. Don't know what those rear pieces are made too fit, is a 260 any different behind the seats?

I used them as sill sections, although they are still too wide once you screw your metal trim piece on top so I cut to suit, I will be getting my v8 zed's carpet custom fitted.

Someone heard through the Townsville grapevine that I had a running L28 (two actually) and wanted to buy one. So I sold them the one I had in the Z atm. Today I pulled the L28 out and swapped all the carbs, manifolds, plugs, coolant piping, dizzy etc over onto the original L24 but tapped the whole thing for a youtube vid...... why I don't know.
Enjoy:

Is there any other way??

Well I picked up some ZG flares the other day. Dimitri the champion, (Zedman240) provided me with the nutserts and stainless allen headed screws to go with them. Being such a generous fellow, he also borrowed me his nutsert installation tool to use, now that's service.

I obvioulsy browsed heavily over the Hybrid Z thread on the installation of the ZG flares but there isn't a whole lot of pics to help you out. Obvioulsy its all about the positioning of the flares themselves, so I made sure I measured several times before each nutsert hole was drilled. I haven't cut my guards as yet because I'd like to fit my wheels/tyres when I eventually get them before chopping into my Z. The inside of the flare has to sit with the groove between the wheel arches so I sticky taped that side in place while I positioned the rest. From looking a several pics, I'm pretty sure the top two screw holes should sit with an an ever so slight angle towards the center of the car if you know what I mean. I also ran a tape line along the car to get a horizontal plain but the wheel arches themselves arn't even so I don't think it helped. I bought some rubber stripping to go between the flares as well but not the 'flare' rubber that they sell as that stuff was almost as big as the flares themselves. Just a P profile strip that I could slice down the middle and use both top and bottom. I cut sections out just as old mate did on the Hybrid forum. I have painted the flares this arv so I'll give them a sand and second coat tomorrow.

Here's a "few" picys I took today:

I've also decided since I can't have an OS Giken twin cam head, I'm sure as hell going to paint my standard single cam rocker cover in the same wrinkle coat black ;D. I took a bit to figure out how the wrinkle coat works. I found it needs to dry laying horizontal so do one flat surface at a time and even though it might be touch dry it takes at least 48 hours to get hard. I will hopefully sand back the raised Nissan and stripes at a later date.

Ha, I'm in the suburbs too with only 1004m2 ;D

The bloke I bought it off had it painted a few years ago, then it sat at his mates place under a tarp till I bought it.

I'd love some rota RB's/superlites/watanabe's. Mossy's ones here look awesome: http://www.viczcar.c...2.html#msg31412
