  1. We have colour! Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red. My camera makes it look washed out & more white then it actually is - I can assure everyone it is very, very RED! Next the doors & guard jambs will be painted, then they well get bolted on, we'll sand the primer to 400g dry. After that it goes into the booth for top colour I'm hoping to have paint on it in 2 weeks...

    The Build 73 240Z

    Dash areived today, quite happy with the finish. Has some imperfections at the inner glove box section but will be hidden once the glove box door goes on. iC7 fits quite snug and now looks complete. I wasn't sure how it would look when finished and Im suprised how well it looks complete

  7. I have been looking into doing this as well. Install looks fairly straight forward. The power steering kits are vehicle specific and replace half of the steering shaft. A few bolts, some wires and a bit of wiggling and you now have power steering haha just so damn expensive!

    EOI LD28 cranks

    Yes. And no. L24 rods are 3mm longer, so it improves the piston pin height. Just depends on what you trying to do...

    ITB are greats but the cost is huge for what it gains over a professionally tuned carbs. Get webbers and go to Steve Boyle in Perth to get it tuned. He's a guru with carbs.

    It’s an older Autronic unit, still works well. Considering a N/A build in future, in two minds of thought!

    Contact Tim Wilkins at SSS Automotive in Sydney - I'm sure he'll have one available.

    Here’s a few more shots. The handling up grades courtesy of Stewart Wilkins, full length chassis rails, big improvement and bracing around sill to chassis rail /TC rod mount plus up to chassis horns, these cars as u know are piss week as they have little to no A pillar and flex like rubber.

  13. Prices are always sticky on the way down. People are reluctant to sell for less than what they saw at peak. Not a lot of 240z's for sale. Lots of 2+2s however..

    I’ve owned it for 31 yrs, it was resprayed 30 yrs ago, still good. L31 Turbo, adjustable suspension courtesy of SW Motorsport, big brakes, R 200 Lsd, drives smooth and handles very predictably. It is such a nice rust free car. About 400hp 18 psi boost.

  15. Thanks for the kind words guys. It'll get there, I just hate progress staling! But a bit of luck happened today. Picked up this very early 74' 260z for parts and cuts today. From the firewall back, the car has a fair bit of rust but still some good bits on it. But the cream of the crop was the front end which I so dearly needed for my build. Passenger side was very good with the only issues being some rust under the battery tray as they all do. Chassis rail seems solid but once I carefully remove the clip, I will check the internals from the exposed end. The drivers side is still overall very solid but the chassis rail has rusted out near the firewall and will need to be replaced. (Already have a pair of KFvintage rails on hand). There is also some slight rust around the interior air guide panel where the bonnet hinge bolts too, this doesn't seem to have gone through the actual air guide part, so i think this could be repaired without having to remove it, but we shall see. Some radiator support pieces are rusty too but I have a full set of good KFvintage/original pieces that can go in without issues here. Overall I'm really happy with this purchase. If anybody is interested in buying the rest of the 260z when I'm done with it (Firewall back) feel free to message me.

  16. anybody noticed that cars are staying up for sale longer than normal. awful lot of s30s for sale atm.... I think most are just asking way too much. As interest rates go up, prices should come down...

  17. I have a 3 and a 6 year old and man its so difficult to get work done on the Z. Not to mention the Mrs always needing help. @ND240Z Bro you will get there. As long as you get small tasks done you will be finished in no time. Also I hear vodka & orange helps lol

  19. Lots of fettling, farnarkling, slapping & spooning, the body now has 4 coats of primer on it. Unfortunately due to circumstances outside my control, we had to paint it in the workshop - not ideal but it worked out OK. Now to 400g the door jams in preparation for colour... Panels are being primed shortly, then the doors & guards will go back on. Then we have the fun job of 240g then 400g sanding the primer back in preparation for topcoat in COB...
