  • Love when you see your car go from bare metal in areas to primer. Always makes my heart skip a beat when that happens!

    • Nothing big, but at the recent Japanclassic.ch show i met my buddy Stefan who had a little gift for me: A NOS Air filter complete with factory boxing. I love this kind of stuff and another piece in the puzzle

          • It has been a while, since i updated the 240Z project here. It's not dead at all, i'm just super busy with some once-in-a-lifetime projects that have to be adressed first.
            I was a bit bummed that my bodyshop guy was so busy as well and couldn't work on it either. However yesterday and today i got some updates totally unexpected and was more than happy
            1) Tabco rear inner wheel well was finally welded in and painted in some protective paint:


            The wheel arches are coming along nicely...


            Todays update contained the rear lower piece of the RH side lower door sill area. Before:


            After:

            Let's see what's up next

            • Today is a short update with a single pic, but a big Impact on the overall appearance of the car: The RH Tabco rear quarter panel is welded in place. I guess there is still a lot of work to make the fitment perfect and all, but at least there isn't a big hole anymore

              • Today finally some progress on the Z from my side as well
                After removing the Breather vent:


                I had serious trouble to get out the speedo pinion carrier from the transmission. Thanks to my close friend Stefan and some brute force, it finally gave up and came out nicely:

                He also managed to move the "tube" that holds the gear selector in place, intwards the transmissino housing:

                So i was able to remove the gear selector.

                It's currently at my other buddy Stefan for some rework (more on that soon)

                After i finally have disassembled the transmission as far as i want to go myself, i had to make an "exploded" view shot, just for fun's sake

                Next step was masking the transmission housing parts with duct tape for glass-bead-blasting and to prevent glass beads ending up in the transmission..

                The previous owner once decided to paint it all in silver, but i will get rid of the peeling-off paint again and have it back in all it's original aluminum glory. Now only waiting for that one part back from rework, then will have it all blasted. All the other parts are ready
