apologies to all in advance, I KILLED A 280Z ON SATURDAY :twisted:


so my day started off kinda comical, for those of you familiar with manga. however this junkyard zed with no where near as cool...autotragic '76 280z left to die

Image

Image

Image

Image

oh sweet almost no rust engine bay with complete battery tray and clean frame rail

Image

hmm whats that?

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

going home

Image

Image

so i now have what i need and more to repair my 240z. i only wanted 1/4 of that clip but they said it was too much work to take apart, and just gave me the whole thing..

work won't start on the major structural stuff till after i move later this month. sucks i have to move all this stuff again...bah

Been a while so I thought I would post an update. Car is lightly sprayed with a colored primer so it can see the light of day haha. Even was able to go to a few local meets, and it really felt great to drive the car again. Finally got my fuse panel replaced and nice big fuse/welder outlet installed at my new house! Should be doing a lot of work in the coming months. Anyways here is a few pics..havent uploaded anything with the car yet

Picked these up from a local buddy of mine. Tokico lowering springs with illumina shock inserts. Nothing crazy, but now I can cut up my original strut assemblies for coilovers later!

Image

Got around to stripping the clip finally. It was a pita moving this from my old house to the new house...

Image

Image

Image

Image

There are subtle differences in the panels, but for what I am stealing from the clip I wont be having any issues. Looking forward to drilling out spot welds...yay

Also picked this up along with a s13 shell that is being coverted to an all stock beater/spare car...debating what to do with it...lots of friends screaming to not put in the zed. I love my triples and the simple n/a setup...but I am curious about swapping..so im on the fence on this one.

Nice Zed! Good to see so much restoration-pics! Good luck!
Have to restore my SPL311 Fairlady this winter.

Nice Grocery getter too! Own an Altezza as Daily (but the more JDM RHD 3SGE Blacktop RS200-Version :P ) :wink:
