    The Build 73 240Z

    Hey Guys Just a small update, picked up the RB26 today and took a heap of clips, nuts and bolts to get cadmium gold plated. Mostly I had the R33 front caliper bits and also my bonnet hinges. Tomorrow I will take the calipers to get powder coated in gloss black and have the nissan letters pin stripped in white. I called Just Jap spairs looking gor a RB25 5 speed and they said they only sell new OME gearboxes from Nissan for 3K. I can pick up a 2nd hand one up for $1300 and risk it being damaged but im tempted knowing that I can get a brand new but 3K is a little on the high side. Ill wait after Christmas and see what happens. So I purchased a 500kg engine stand from super cheap thinking it will hold the engine but I was wrong. As I put the engine on the stand and lowered the hoist the engine fell forward and nearly flipped lol, lucky the engine was still on the hoist. I think the stand needs longer legs to carry the RB weight but hopefully should be ok for the L28 engine to sit on. So I purchased the RB without the manifold or turbo, computer and wiring. Looking at single turbo and custom manifold, haven't decided on what turbo yet. But I definitely will go down the Haltec elite path. Wiring I will leave to Justin Love my Caddy Van so useful with plenty of room and strap points. Happy Restorations

    The RB26 is currently selling at market price due to the value of the GTR's climbing up. I paid in and around, over and under the 7k mark for the motor. There is one selling in Queensland for $8990.00 out of a R34 https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/nerang/engine-engine-parts-transmission/r34-gtr-n1-engine-complete-rb26dett-motor-rb26/1202854867 . There's a R32 RB26 selling for $5500 https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/riverton/engine-engine-parts-transmission/rb26-gtr-engine-motor/1203025061 but for what he claims it should be selling for more.

    So today I went into the panel shop and to my suprise nothing was done lol. So to fill the void I went and bought a RB26DETT out of a R33 GTR, I pick it up on Firday. So now that the plans have changed and I will be selling the 280zx L28 and 5spd. The engine is a running engine and the box is the original 280zx 5spd. Will come with a new clutch and SW headders. Haven't decided on a price yet. Lets see how the car progresses by next week as he promised me he will get stuck into my car

    On Tuesday Im going to see the panel beater that was working on my car before he left. He literally opened a shop next door so I can just roll it out and take it to his shop. I really dislike it when people who waste my time and over promise and under deliver. I would rather he call me and say I cant do the job, come take the car.

    Ahhhhhhhhh! Im guessing you already know my frustration and no its not sexually but she does have nice curves the old S30. So its been over a month and old boy panel beater is beating something but its not metal. Only one quater on the drivers has been bogged and the roof has had a light skim put over it, other than that nothing else. I think im going to rock up and just take the car and find someone else to finish the job, Enough is enough.
  8. I think the person who buys this 2 + 2 would be cross eyed, looking at those fender mirrors.
