    Rear Hatch Sill Replace it or wait it out.

    You may have a typeo... What and welding?! Hah, joking aside. Here is my take: Hiring someone to repair that properly is likely an expensive endeavor just due to the time involved. If you can weld, or have a friend that can weld it up, Z car depot sells that whole panel for like $140 You can carefully drill our and cut welds, fit the new panel and weld it in. Can it wait? It's your car. I have drive cars with worse rust. Is it a good idea? Probably not.
  2. I ended up with mine a bit more rearward... Which was the source of some headaches.

    New widebody kit design

    Reminds me of a 911 slant nose
  4. But... Has anyone used BC DRs and if so, how do you like them?

    Measurements for CD009 and R154 and trans tunnel

    You know... regarding motor position and ideal weight balance. I have been thinking relative to my own project lately, at some point you make compromises. I am in the mode of just trying to get things done and progress the car along. Is it better? Yeah sure, but how much better? 3% better? Big deal. If something fits better, or becomes more affordable, or more practical, go for it. I am if you are trying to optimize for absolute max effort performance, let's be honest, it is the wrong platform all together.

    LS Swap Parts

    If I was not so far along with my chassis, I would buy this. There is a lot of value there.

    Well that is not very nice. I think that modifying the shifter is probably the most straight forward approach. With all the work you have into motor position, I would buy or build a shifter. This also has the added benefit of keeping the weight as far rearward as possible.
  8. For whatever it's worth, I had a good experience with them. Hope your parts arrive soon.
  9. Nice! What booster did you order? Stock replacement?

    Transmission Mount Liquid Urethane

    "they had a very strong smell straight out of the box" You know what we don't talk about enough, the smell of new parts.
  11. Off topic: wowah! Check out those tierod TC rods!

    Transmission Mount Liquid Urethane

    I once filled a torn rubber motor mount with urathane windshield adhesive, out of a caulking gun. It worked amazingly well.
  13. Is that the same as a 280Z pedal box?
  14. Nice! As you stated, I bet the sealed bearing is ok on it's own. However I always prefer an additional dust shield. I think TTT should sell the bushings and seals as an add on.... And owe you a beer for the idea.

    Hey buddy, Welcome back. I met you once at my good friends shop in Petaluma while Joe was working out of one of his bays (Cody at Quater Tilt). Glad to see you kept the car. Looking forward to seeing the progress.
  17. I will take them.
  18. What is the failure mode? I would like to see some pics of one of these.

  21. Great illustration and explanation of the rubber/poly TC rob bushings! Thanks
  22. Wow that is stout. Yeah that should do it! Great work as always and thanks for sharing.

    Litman, impressive my friend. Your car is SO clean. I thought that the OEM compressor was variable displacement and was not compatible with the vintage air. Perhaps I was mistaken. I went to the Sanden because it is slightly smaller and I was fighting for fractions of an inch.
