Not sure who it was, all I know is it was near the z factory, the job was ok but a couple of bits were missed here and there.

Always happens some of the factory paint/sealer can sometime really really stick and then in other places you only need to blow air over the location and the stuff is removed.

 

The media will keep coming out of the car. My zed was on a rotisserie and it was rotated/vacuum/rotate/vacuum etc and I still get grit out of it. I too did the firewall wiper box repair - cut until we got clean steel = almost one side to the other. Just make sure the pedal box and heat box fit easily before you weld it for good. We forgot to check the heater box so I have had to get the rubber hammer out and so some minor bending on the heater box and a little on the wiper box :( I guess the floor of the wiper box moved down just a few mm's

be original, try a pink or bright yellow! I did my mini engine bright yellow when I was an apprentice and it was the best thing when the damn thing broke down at night, light up the whole engine bay with small torch!

I love the stock blue, I don't think I could ever open the bonnet again if it was yellow ;D

 

I've been making some progress as of late, the bottom of the car is stoneguarded and some of the restored suspension has been bolted back in, now time for filler work ;)

Cheers Guys, forgot to mention I just got these dark coloured watanabes in 16x8 which should suit the factory orange nicely.

Just test fitted the 16x8 wats with 225/45 tyres, they look great (against the etch ::)) but I'm thinking by the look of it i won't have to roll the guards.

 

At the moment I'm undecided on the front spoiler or the factory valance with a small factory chin/lip attached, so I'm thinking to just paint both and decide from there. One of the reasons as you can see in the pic is the slope of my driveway which looks like it may eat my front spoiler at the first attempt to drive out.

Youd be surprised but even on lowered zeds the front spoilers still don't hang very low. Not nearly as much as most imports. My car would get up that pretty easy.
