  1. Like everywhere else, cut it out and replaced. I became quite a fan of 'Ferguson's Knock-Out'. Composition looked good, was easy to apply in channels, etc. and was weld through.
  2. Just a cautionary note. You may find it hard to believe but that section can be prone to rust - I know, it's hard to believe with it being a 240Z. Ensure you use spreader plates if you are going to pull or push it into shape.
  3. I used Advanced sandblasting at Brookvale, Happy with their work. But it was nearly 15 years ago!
  4. I wonder if anyone with an LS1-t56, and using John's Cars Inc mounts, has just removed/install the gearbox? I need to replace the clutch but figure the bellhousing might foul the transmission tunnel as I slide the gearbox off. When I built it I assembled the engine and gearbox and dropped the body over them. I've never separated the engine/gearbox whilst fitted to the car. Thanks. I've asked on Hybrid Z - if anyone still uses that?
  5. Bugger you Leon. I can't find anything negative to say.
  6. Peter. I'd never heard of the procedure before so I did a bit of research on that valve thing. Good luck mate, it looks promising.
  7. After three and a half years, and a rebuilt chassis, the body has emerged from under the house. https://postimg.cc/p5YzZ0GD https://postimg.cc/hJ6LPQQ7 https://postimg.cc/DJGqWf1p Can't rush these things.
  8. Acetone and auto transmission fluid is a home brew penetrating oil.
  9. You can make a puller yourself for <$10. Whatever you do, soak them in penetrating oil - acetone and auto fluid - for a few days before you try pressing or pulling them out.
  10. Yes, nice work, but please please DO NOT let your next post be: "Hey guys, how do you get the spindle pins out? - I've tried all the ham-fisted techniques I know and I've butchered the threads but I can't get them out"
  11. I’d suggest you have it media blasted and etch primed to see what is surface rust and what requires replacement. The process will reveal the actual good, bad and ugly. You’ll then know exactly how to proceed and eliminate the guesswork.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong but a chap on here called George stated the same thing a few years ago. Each time he pops his head up it's shortly followed by tales of morning sickness! Still, there's always time in retirement. Good luck Gary.
  13. You're welcome to come and check out my engine-stand rotisserie and take measurements. I loaned it out once but never again! PM me if interested.
  14. Agree 100% with the previous comments regarding just knock the dents out of the floor. You can also make cover rails to go over the crushed ones. Remember there will be sealer sprayed underneath and sound-proofing, plus carpet on the floor. Too many folks dig themselves into deep holes with these project and it leads to some despair and project delays.
