Hey bud did you go see your car? Has Marcel started on mine? The last 3 weeks I've been moving house and renovating the new place, I don't have any of my tools, none of my cars are here and I haven't even got internet here yet. I tried calling Marcel all day friday but no answer. I won't have time to go down there for another week or 2.....

Your cars looking good!

Rudi.

Box of tissues needed 

Progress on the fabricating turbo manifold and dump pipe. I decided to Go with a Garrett Gen2 GTX34/82R due to its mid to top range power, no lagging needed. With a built engine could get 500kw of power which im my mind is too much for this car, not that it doesn't deserve it .

Who is making the manifold for you? Looks like a work of art.

What did you do with the old twins? Were they R33 or R34 twins?

Hey Gavin 

Its Mick at Race Solutions he is the fabricator at the shop. 

When I purchased the engine I didn't buy the twins, they were R33 twins.

More progress on the S30Z

Front mount, intake piping, manifold, dump, Westgate all welded up and ready to get pulled out and get powder coated black and ceramic coating, including throttle body powder coated black. Also will get the radiator powder coated in black. Blow off valve to be fabed up when everything gets taken out so it can be hidden somewhere underneath the piping.

So moving forward tomorrow the engine will get taken out and the shell sent to get some small body work done on the front guards and then prepp for paint. Also need to get a clutch stop fabricated up so my leg doesn't go through the firewall lol.

I have asked the guys at Race Solutions to replace the oil pump, rear main seal replaced, timing belt replaced, rear head oil drain installed and some other bits and pieces to ensusure the longevity of the RB26. 

So we test fitted the R33 GTST front and rear breaks to SW brackets and all was well. We also fitted the 15x8 Watanabe wheels and we had good clearance on the front caliper and wheel but had issues with the rear caliper touching the inside of the wheel spoke. It was the Nissan lettering that was touching the spokes. Might need to machine the lettering or figure something out. But definitely will not machine the wheels.

Happy Restos Guys

Some more progress pictures of the S30z. Finally mounted up the Motorsport rear spoiler and really happy with the fit. The only issue we had was the rear hatch lock cutout was off centered and couldn't align it with the lock. Might need to make some modifications.

All panels have been aligned just need to mount up the front valance and lip. The car will be ready for highfill, finally.

Hey Guys 

Been a while now waiting for my car to get painted. Its been blocked down amd hopefully will have the inside of the cabin painted in black this week and then the shell after that. 

Have been organising small things like getting all the cooler pipes, radiator, intercooler, manifold, turbo housing, rear housing and dump pipe all coated in black. Will definitely look sexy when put together.  Heading there on Friday and will take some pictures to post up.

Also took all the door, hatch hinges and latch mechanisms and door lock mechanisms, bonet locks and stay and got them enamel coated gold. Just small details that I think will make a difference. 

I keep telling myself soon, soon, soon, ahhhhhh taking so long, soon soon.

SERENITY NOW!

Where did you take all your stuff to get plated? and how long did it take?

Not really going to go back to the place i took my stuff to. I only had a small painting cup worth of parts, and it took them 6 - 8 weeks to do.

Wow that gold enamel coating looks much better than the zinc passivating I’ve had done.

I like it!! Where’d you get it done and how was the pricing?

Hey @Cozza @CroS13

Thanks guys 

 

I had them done at Elite Plating at Smithfield,  NSW. Took less than 2 weeks and Chris charged me $120 for the lot.

Hey Chaps 

Picked up all the powder coated pipes, radiator, intercooler and turbo housing a few days ago and man everything looks mint. 

Just a small glimpse for you guys. Ill put more pictures up when everything is assembled in the engine bay.
