...Yours would be the turbines, not the slot mags, I believe he was simply stating that either/or were popular dealer options back in the day...

Your turbines could have been manufactured by any number of companies, I don't have the eye (or care enough, lol) to know which.

Image

Wolfraces are analogous to Ansen slot mags which were more popular in the US... The Wolfraces I'm most familiar with from the series one Lotus Esprit :)

Lots of things where done since i posted last time :)

New wheels - new color :)

Image

Since i aint wanted them to be plain black - decided to add a bit of color to them :)

Fronts and rear have different mesh - so decided to do different ornament on both also:

Image

New steering wheel by M'sport - and it was a superb day to get it back on the road!

Image

We done a little photoshoot - so there will be lots of photos pretty soon!!! One small downside is i never managed to sort out G'nose glasses... no one wants to manufacture them here localy, and to find them it seems imposible without paying top dollar for them :(

Oh, and as my Brown 280z is getting done already - i bought another one from 'states' :) Got it from Auctions, came as charity vehicle, and it has been in storage for lots of years it seems :) Got it from Nevada desert - so its pretty much burned all around... interior is pretty messy, but overall - not too much rust. This one will be done in less flashy way, i want to make it look more like 240z. Will be starting this month to work on it - so will be updating here also :)

Wow, I really like it with the G-nose. As I scrolled down I was hoping you'd go with brown or orange as the final colour and I wasn't disappointed!
