geez its taking long time to get back to norm Mick. That accident sure was more serious.

 

to make u feel bit better since this crap cold weather my right knee and lower back are killing me. never had this problem prior the accident. got booked at specialist to get checked out. i recon i go insane if i cant work on cars. hope its nothing serious. but working on a car at the moment is too painfull. 

 

so that takes both of us out.

 

F#$*@$ lancer driver.

 

hopefully when all this crap is over and we mended we can put some hrs in and get these cars finished. i got lot of catching up to do.

yeh the cold weather plays havoc with the metal rod up my leg. :-\

Are you claiming your medical expenses on third party insurance? It might be worth the claim for you. I got a good solicitor to get me every thing i am entitled to.

 

I think i might get out and do some things to the zed this week some time

I have to pull the f54 l28 out of the 280zx so i can get rid of the rest of the car. I need to free up some some space in my yard  :D

today i put a fule pump that works in the 280zx which has the motor that i will be using in my 240z.

Wow this motor runs crisp and smooth.

I did a compression test on it a while back and it came up with 150 psi even on each pot. Its a f54 block and i have a p90 head which i will put on it

I wont be putting this engine in the car till i have a after market ecu and all else i need to make it run

In the mean time i will do with the l20et as it is all there, it just needs to be bolted in

Well I finally got to work on the zed for the first time this year due to recovering from a motorcycle accident.

I have removed the slam panel to replace it with a new one. Just as i expected i have a bit of fabrication work to do before i fit  up the new

slam panel.

There is quite substantial rust on either side above the tail light as you can see in the photo

 

Any way ill be getting in to it a bit more now i am more mobile and i ham back at work and earning a crust again

i still havnt fixed it. Instead i have decided to drop it down off the rotisserie and back on its wheels so i can rolll it out of the shed and sandblast the area before i put the new metal in.

should be all fixed in the next week or two

 

Here she is off the rotisserie, still with no suspension . the wheel is just sitting there for modeling

As a side note I'm looking forward to seeing progress on your bluebird wagon there. Is it a 410 wagon?

the bluebird is actualy a wP 312.

I hope to have the 240z painted by the end of the year then i can start on the body work for the bluebird

I have decided that i am going to paint the bluebird the same color as i painted my bike (barbados)and a nice set of white walls and hubbies

I will be looking for an a15 engine from a sunny or maby even a L20b

 

this is the color i am thinking

Good stuff.  ;)

Hey, you have the "260Z" staggered rear bumper holes.  I thought all 240Z's had the holes parallel. Maybe just the earlier ones.  Your rotisserie will not line up with earlier 240Z's then without mods?? ???

the rear beaver panel has been replaced at some stage and is neither 240 or 260z because it is completely flush so the bumper holes may be different. I have never had a bumper fitted to it so i wil;l be doing a dummy fit before i paint it all 

Thanx for the encouragement guys

i finished off the rear slam panel

It turned out pretty good.

I had to fabricate i far amount of the section under the slam panel because it was rusted right out

 

Next is time to fix the rusty hatch. I am not looking forward to this because it is quite bad, so if any one has a resonable hatch they dont need, I will

gladly take it off your hands
