I bought this a little while ago from a member on the forum.
It had a hit in the front passenger side and the chassis was twisted slightly.
I stripped it down, tar deadened the floor, dynamatted the interior straightened out the body a little and sent it in to the body shop to have the car straightened out and the panels gapped.
The plan is to make the car like a new car. I have coated the underside of the panels with body deadener, am fitting new rubbers, updating the paint. I have chosen an orange in 2pac thats similar to the original orange but a metallic.
I am going with a black interior but with a tan colour to offset it.
I have a few photos so far.

Got heaps of photos, but will get some decent ones up soon after it's all straightened out. I want the final product to be a cross between traditional styling and more modern jdm, if that makes sense. I may take it to my exhaust shop after it's straightened out as they are right near each other and I am looking for a stainless system.

I used dynamatt on the whole car, you need 2 mega packs which is 18 sheets. I used knh brush on tar deadener on the wholecar before I put the deadener down. And I will use some dynamat under lay before I put the carpet down. Tar was $40, the dynamat was $210 a packet

What do people think about these? Its obviously going to ad a race feel, and look a bit modern, but they are not over the top...

Why the carbon front air dam if you don't mind me asking? Is this going to be a race car?

I was going to track it every once a while. But I just want something visually loud that offsets the orange paint. Plus I don't have to paint carbon.

Ok, The air dam is ordered and I am just about ready to prime the car for paint. I have to head to Sydney this weekend, so I doubt it will be done this week.

Was doing some work on the engine last night, and the was removing the the thernastat cover off the housing. The old bolt snapped off and the the cover shattered. J guess it was just old so I will have to replace that. The water in the block did not seem to be circulating. Could the engine need a New pump, or Does itneed to reach a certain temp?

That's what the thermostat's job. Slowing or virtually stopping the flow of water till it reaches the temp printed on the thermostat itself. Once that temp is reached, it opens and lets the water flow through the engine to the radiator to be cooled, but when the temp of the water gets too cool, thermostat partially closes and slows the water to heat up again. If the engine runs too cool, it loses power and gets shyte fuel economy. Happened to my first 260Z; when I replaced the thermostat, was like chalk and cheese!
