  1. Hi guys, it’s been to long and far between. The first Sunday of each month at Lilydale Supercheap Auto car Park. 8.30 chat, 9.00am drive. All cars welcome, but bring your best if weather permits. i would encourage the use of CB radios and we roll with CH 16. Make sure you arrive with enough fuel as it’s a big inconvenience to stop the group early. Augast 5th. Warburton, Reefton Spur, Lake Mountain if weather ok then coffee at Marysville. The standard Loop. September 2nd. Farthers day. Healesville, Toolangi and across to Kinglake for Coffee. Head home through St Andrews. October 7th. Daylight saving. Healesville, Woori Yallock, Cockatoo and Emerald for Coffee. Monbulk, Olinda to Montrose and home. November 4th. Cup weekend. Yarra Junction, to Noojee for Coffee, Neerim Junction and back to Yarra Junction. December 2nd. Yet to be determined.

    Challenge Bathurst 2018

    Hi Dave. Would love to run with you guys this year. If you can save a spot for me in your regularly group that would be awesome. Been looking at this event for some time now. And finally I can lock this year in. Cheers Gordo.
  6. That's what makes Toms car such a great race car. Developed in the 80s, very well thought out car and a front runner back in the day.

    Z Get Together Or Run - January 20Th?

    Won't be around that weekend.
  8. Yes Richard. I understand what you mean. I think this may not be the first version of this spoiler. I could be tempted to extend the spoiler even more if the top speed is not effected.
  9. On the weekend I built the 2,1/2 inch exhaust . Just tacked it there. Got it up nice and high. Will finish welding when I get another gas bottle. Ran out of Gas. lol.
  10. Was out at Sandown in November and was thinking I don't need the big rear wing. So I made this rear spoiler extension which is a common modification . I was pulling a few more revs up the front and back straights and managed a PB. So I will defanantly give this a run at the Island next year.
  11. Hi Gareth. I used the 2+2 strut legs for the extra diameter. Shorten shockers. Think they are from the Z31. With the shockers I got the threaded collars that you weld on the top of your 2+2 strut legs once you determine the correct length. Then slide the threaded spring collars over and weld at required hight.
  12. So that's about it.. 14 days of posting going through the build from start to finish. Thanks for reading guys.
  13. Some of the things I added. Just because. Rear tow hooks made with a chain link welded to backing plate and powder coated. 260zed switches put into the top of fuse box lid. Alloy peddle covers. Recessed front guard indicators. Shortened front bumpers. Rear quarter interior panels moulded to fit speakers. Battery cut off switch. Full hight grill. Front tow hook. Recoil seat belts. Nissan Silvia front seats. Rounded rear quarters. (No bumper bar ) Fluted bonnet. Speedo in kph. Fresh motor. Adjustable coil over suspension . With Bilsten shockers. Disk brakes all round.
