This week's update, the wheels are back from paint and polish!

Image

I was able to mount the tires today at work. Thankfully we have a Cheetah bead seater which makes stretching tires very easy.

First time the cars been on its wheels in months so I rolled it out of the side yard for a few pictures.
I found the exhaust collector is way too low. I've got about an inch of clearance from the collector to the ground...
Just one more thing to address before JCCS next month...

DAMN! I don't even recognize this car. This is Brian btw. Mind if I like this up on our blog 4thUP.com? You took this to levels I didn't expect in the least bit.

swapping to electrical ignition / newer distributor requires tach upgrade as well...

pretty common on S30Zs as well



Ahhh, I see. I've always wondered this. Thanks :)

A few pictures from CnC saturday morning. Happy to say everything is going well.
The engine and exhaust are complete, the interior is back from upholstery and the seats came out fantastic. Looking forward to JCCS in two weeks!

This week all of the chrome pieces were removed and are now out being re-chromed. Bumpers, door handles, grills, tail lamp bezels, etc. In addition I decided the audio system could use a go through. I picked up a new deck and some 6x9's for the rear. Looks like the car originally came with 4" or 4.5" rear speakers. Some modification is required for these 6x9" but it should be worth it. I made up a new rear shelf panel and some spacers for the speakers since the new 6x9's sit a little deeper and would contact the fuel tank through the shelf without a spacer. Finished product should be Wednesday after the panel gets new vinyl.
