Unfortunatly after speaking with some Hako owners I may need to wait on the stoker a bit when the car comes back. Besides relocating oil catch as well as dipstick. The Engine came with N47 head with mild porting. N47 not the best out there and might switch to N42.

Was a Big fan of (2) But more ans more I want something thats not manilla so 4,5,7, are my new favorites.

After posting on Hako facebook page there was a lot of calls out for blue's
So Why not even if I'm not a fan of blue on Hako's

Also was looking to get my Valve cover milled to say the following. Still working out a way to do it, since the letters are hollow. You can find these on Yahoo japan auction.

So what do I do when I get bored? LEARN NEW THINGS. Always wanted to learn how to make a mold and do a carbon lay up.
Well Why the hell not.

Nice detail on the strip down. Wow the patch work on the body was a real mess, good thing you decided to fully strip the body. What was the hardest part to take apart? I like your seats very nice material choice.

I always thought a C10 or a C110 would look beautiful in Millenium Jade.

That car would look sick in tangerine. Also your first attempt at making something with cf looks pretty good.

I'm not body man but if your going to spend the time to replace a quarter panel, why couldn't you take the extra time to align them???? Most of the patches made for the car were done the same. Well the other ones are worse


Interesting read, I think the answer to your question is the same as always. Unless the previous owners are willing to pay alot more to repair the patches to perfection then it isn't going to happen. To repair them the way you see wouldn't take more than 30 minutes. To integrate the patch so it doesn't look like a patch would take hours and hours of extra labour which costs a lot more money. The C pillar doesn't look too bad to me, the other areas are pretty common of an "in" and "out" panel shop repair. You have to remember there was nothing special about your car 20years ago when the repairs were most likely done. The previous owners probably knew the car was on it's last legs before going to crusher !

Great to see a car being all stripped down and done properly, sill last another 30 years now :)

I've just painted my 240z Tangerine, So that gets my vote !
