    Update again, based on reclocking the Caliper Brackets on Sam's Zed i have a new design. In the next week i will be offering kits that will resolve issues with having the calipers pointing to the front of the vehicle. Stay tuned!

    Took a 302 V8 Cleveland Powered 2+2 Zed with R31 rears, proportioning valve and S12+8 Front Calipers on solid rotors and passed engineering pulling .93 G's stopping power with a .8 required for a pass. May be useful info for those going down a similar path. This was the fade test results.

    If inside the piston and bore are dirty it will not allow the piston to return to it's seated position because of the way the piston twists as brake pad wear occurs. Disassemble, clean and rekit. I had the same problem.

    This isn't a site it's a Community and being that a new member can't just walk in with a car for sale at that price without people wanting to know a little more. Being a member here for 8 years tells me you are certainly not a Datsun guy and you probably shouldn't even have that car for sale unless you are willing to Let People Look at It and take necessary information and overall condition of the vehicle. Your price might be low but some people are up to the task of full restoration and some are not. If we as a community have to go by the word of someone none of us have ever met we may as well be sending our information to Nigerian Princes for them to deposit large sums of cash into our accounts..

    Following a request i have now fabricated a Driver's side dolly for the same area. I'll be knocking a set out soon and i will post up a photo. At this rate i think i will have to become a sponsor of Auszcar.

    Nice ride, had a heavy knock on the passenger side but looking forward to more photos for sure.

    It's easy a 25K job all engineered. Parts are half of that needs brake suspension upgrade and you'll need a VGC Zed to start with.

    Another way to do it is if you have the car under restoration drill out the spot weld and turn it around then weld it back in. Simples.

    Alright guys there has been a major gap in my updates here but I still update the Facebook page more often but now the car is having a rest in the build process I thought I should run some updates here. Alright quite a bit has happened in this time so I will split this up over 2 posts which will be the "parts turning up post" and the "work completed" posts. 

    Well this is going to be the parts turning up post so lets get to it with some pictures.


    First things first we had to replace all the suspension bushes in the car. Sadly they screwed up with 1 bush by providing 2 uppers and not an upper and lower but that was solved with some help from Mark (Scoota).
     

    My order from MSA, Includes the battery tray stuff, comp scoop, and some  other reproduction items.
     

    Alright here is the ITB setup. Im not too happy with the manifold so that will be getting a redesign and rebuilt when it comes time to doing the turbo manifold as well so they will both be same thickness flanges and such to make install a lot easier. Also there is EMS pro ECU in there as well which more than likely will end up going after I speak to my tuner to see what he would prefer we run but that is still a while down the line. There is also some modifications to the air box that Jason informed I should carry out as well to help equalise the pressure within the chamber so that will be done down the track to.

    I will put up the car upgrade post later tonight.

    Bit of a development upgrade for all the race inspired guys or people who like to fill out the inside of the wheel. The brackets are again reworked R31 units which allows the use of a 300MM Rotor at the rear.
     
    You can see the difference in the rotors in the last picture which it's obviously substantial size and would require 17" rims for fitment.

    Tried to organize someone to look at this vehicle and seller doesn't want anyone taking photos and putting them on the internet. Make up your own minds on this one, i'll keep my opinions to myself on this Zed.

    Nice Zed. You'll probably need to change the length of the tailshaft but should be no issue with the yolk. Cross that bridge when you come to it.
