Hey mate, Can't believe I haven't seen this car in any pics anywhere. I have to admit your a brave man to blacken all the chrome but I think you've pulled it off. Looks really smart. Makes a refreshing change. Any other exterior shots of the car to take it all in?

On a side note, a personal preference, could the cage not have been angled to match the window line?

There are not too many pics of my car out there as I have no desire to me an Internet troll. The cage is in line with the windows.

I had some left over cash laying around this weekend and thought it was a good time to build an oil cooler stup.

I have stopped wasting money on Earls fittings and hoses. I used redhorse products this time. They seem just as nice and are alot less $$$.

Image

I did bite the bullet and pony up the cash for an Earls cooler though. I wanted it now and did not want to wait for an on-line purchase to arrive.
Image

The whole assembly is barely noticeable behind the grill. I did not want an external or gaudy "look at me" oil cooler setup.
Image

When I buy an aluminium radiator I will most likelikey weld on a couple mounting tabs to it so the coolers can be removed together as 1 unit. Until then a piece of bracing mounted to the bottom of the cooler is good enough.

MAN, i wish i could see the cooler pics on my work computer.
ive been stocking up on some of the parts to piece my cooler together too (after i ship the car to the US..)
i will have to look into these redhorse fittings. ive been trying to convince myself for a long time to bite the bullet and order some -10 fittings.
aside from this meaningless reply, i wanted to say that your car is super clean, and i dig it!

i wish us Hako owners were a closer knit group, we all own suce rare and sought after cars that it would seem we would all hit it off a bit better, but i feel like we are all competing for some unknown prize LOL.

I cant wait to get my damn car to the states (only a few more months!)

What is the steel braided line right in front of your oil sending unit?

The steel braided line is the oil sending unit for the Omorii mechanical oil pressure guage.

_10 AN fittings are way too large for an oil cooler :wink:

a lot of the oil cooler kits i see here in Japan for L6's have -10 fittings and hoses. the oil filter adapted that i have is -10, so thats why i wanted to go with that size.

Be careful of using a sandwich plate style oil cooler attachment. Some are too thick that the oil filter will hit the steering box when trying to remove it. My last one was this style. A shorter filter would have been a solution but I did not want to spend time searching around for a shorter filter that would fit. I had installed the motor with the filter on. I had to remove the motor mounts and tilt the engine to one side just to remove the filter and plate. I like this stock plate and teh 280zx turbo crowd is happy to part them out. WINNING!!

I still have some work to do on refreshining the horn pad. Here is a shot of it installed. I am expecting new light and turn signal swithes soon as well. They are the last of the junk yard parts left on this car.

Yep def a C110 GT/X wheel. Looks ace though! You can pick up new horn pads on Yahoo Japan from time to time if you need :)

Car is looking fantastic man!


Best thing you can do for it now is ditch the Fram oil filter and go with a Bosch or Napa Gold.

****Confirmed*****R31 4 lug rotors are a direct for for the DR30 struts and Z32 brakes without the use of spacers. Even moves the wheel in oars a bit to help with fender lip tire clearance. A nasty pothole damaged my fender a bit. Unnoticeable under the fender flare...however I know it is there.
