  1. 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.
  2. 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. https://www.google.com/search?q=elite+plating&oq=elite+pla&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.5082j0j9&client=ms-android-samsung-ss&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8
  3. 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!
  4. They should be ashamed of themselves
  5. DATSUN DAY Sunday November the 10th Eddamogah Hotel Kellyville Ridge in NSW. Address in the link below. https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-samsung-ss&sxsrf=ACYBGNTg6d22EV24N-1YpjhPvlCp4CpbOQ%3A1572698063347&ei=z3e9XdTmFNfHrQH-2I-4AQ&q=ettamogah+hotel&oq=ettamogah+hotel&gs_l=mobile-gws-wiz-serp.3..0l8.8365.11397..11832...0.1..0.212.1300.0j7j1......0....1.........0i71j35i39j0i20i263.kK0kjXjGjXE
  6. Definitely we need to have these cars done ASAP so we can go cruzing. Are you planning to get Aircondition kit?
  7. Got to love the fiddly stuff ayy. I have no patience, I always end up breaking something with my big fingers. Better to let Marcel finish my car lol Yeah time flys, was Marcel doing any actual work till 7pm ? Lol
  8. Definitely a nice colour choice Rudy, looks amazing.
  9. Yeah I thought it was like that from factory. I searched pictures on Google and they all curve in on the exhaust side. Hopefully my car will get painted straight after @CroS13 Rudys car is finished.
  10. Hey @gav240z on the original rear valance did you notice it to curve in more on the exhaust side and curve out on the opposite side? I went past to have a look at my car and I noticed the rear valance is curved in more on the exhaust side than the opposite side. I wanted to know if this was standard as the panel beater said they couldn't get it straight. Cheers, Youhan
  11. Wow Rudy seriously looks amazing champ, congratulations on the progress. It was about time Marcel pulled his finger out hahaah, NEXT! Is Marcel going to put it together for you?
  12. Haha yeah Marcel mentioned it to me when I was there the other day. Its going to look good in that garage, especially when its all done
  13. @CroS13 Bro I seen ypur car on Thursday and its coming along really nice. Marcel said he was going to paint it this week. Cant wait to see it painted. Post up a picture of your garage
  14. Were have you been bro lol long time no speak. Yeah definitely same time, mine should be in highfill this week but haven't confirmed with Marcel
  15. Hey Guys I have the original break booster and master cylinder I restored for the 73z last year not used for sale as I have upgraded to a R33 setup. Not sure how much its worth but I paid about $380 to have it restored by Burt Bros in Fairfield. Located Sydney, will ship at your cost. Happy Restos
  16. @gav240z Bro do you have a dartboard at your house with this guys picture on it lol
  17. 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.
  18. 960K seems fair for that block. I cant get over how cheap some houses on large blocks are in Vic. If it wasn't for family we would have moved a long time ago. My favorite suburb in Melbourne is Templestowe and Upper. Big blocks, big houses, development potential for subdivision and duplexes. Sell, buy another, repeat till content. Spend money on the S30z
  19. @gav240z this one is for you...... https://m.realestate.com.au/property-house-vic-narre+warren+north-131558814
  20. 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 Youhan
  21. 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.
  22. 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 .
  23. Some pressure washers have a detergent hose that you can use to run some diluted acid in a bucket. Could be a good option to give that a try with acid and leave it to sit in there and then give it a good wash out with fresh water.
  24. Wow must have taken ages to get it all out. Better you are doing it now so your heater core lasts longer.
