Hi all, been busy of late and thought I would throw a few photos up as it is getting closer to be finished! Engine starts and run, took it for a test drive up the side street (I was a tad excited). Still need to get an air filter and tune carbs, finish putting the doors together, centre console and rear interior plastics, seat belts (bought the rare spares off eBay), radio, carpets, mount rear bumper and a set of tyres for rego. Need a chrome front windscreen corner piece if anyone has one??

Had a bit of a set back with flood, but engine has been flushed and is running, need to lift it up and change oils and wheel bearings and flush brake lines. Then look into electronics and pull the dash back out and change gauges. Paid someone to detail it, took all day just to do the body coming back later to do carpets and seats. Never looked so good

Good to see Mitch and also good to see that you haven't given up. We must catch up one day for a cruise. I was going to Bryon Bay last Sunday but had a skin cancer cut out that has got infected and didn't go. Got a week of needles in the rear end to fix that up now. LOL.

Its been a busy few weeks, 

We've moved house which means I've now got a Z Shed!! Painted the walls and floor, installed some stainless benchwork. Still need some stainless cupboards and drawers to go under and better lighting. 

 

We moved the Z into its new home away from the flood area! Put it up on stands, started stripping out mechanicals and replacing parts. Decided to upgrade brakes and move to MCA coilovers as the oil leaked out of the konis. I've also got some cheap semi slicks for the initial run in/setup stage.

 

Still got a long list to go but I will get there eventually. At least the cars at home now and I can work on it whenever I want to.

My parents and the 2+2 are still in the flood area but once the 2 seater is finished I will move it into the shed and start the next 15 yr project

So I think I need to spend less time building a work shop and more time building a Z !!!

 

Took about 100hrs and the boss gave me the stainless for $300. Still got a few things to finish off like plumb the sink in, make a broom cupboard at the righthand end and make a cover for where the compressor goes under the bench on the lefthand end. But I'm pretty happy with the way its worked out, makes it a nice spot to enjoy working on the Z and get away from the misses.
