  1. Nice work! How do you like the tanks inc efi conversion? I am considering doing one with their kit, or ricks, or Aeromotive... or vaporwox... Having a hard time picking one.
  2. Can not send PMs

    When I try to compose a new message, it allows me to add a User, add a Subject, Attach files. But it will not allow me to type a message. Please help.
  3. Yeah, I think maybe it's the flare that makes the wheel arch look more centered. Apex do seem nice. TTT makes a good product too.
  4. MEATS! That looks awesome! Holy heck that is a lot of tire. The fit is perfect for your setup. What arms are you using? Look like wheel center line is moved back slightly.
  5. That stitch welding is some of the best I have ever seen. Great work. I am inspired to slow down a bit, stay patient, and measure them all out.
  6. Drive shaft shop CV conversion doesn't fit!

    Probably a silly question, but can you just flip the bolts? So the nuts are on the other side?
  7. That sucks man. Of course the thread gets boogerd the very last time it comes apart... Figures. Getting a threadsert in dead straight is not easy. The car is looking great. Keep it up.
  8. vintage air drain hose

    Here is a better photo. In the box there should be a short length of nylon tubing that pushes on the barb fitting, this then has to be routed outside the car, and has to be sloped downward (gravity drain). I am waiting for my replacement to come to figure out exactly where I will route it.
  9. vintage air drain hose

    Hey man, my apologies. I ended up having to send that evaporator back (it was the wrong unit). I should have it back next week. Here is an image I found on google, I added an arrow to the drain location. If you take a pic of the bottom of yours I can point it out.
  10. Welcome to HybridZ. I would start by reading up on the FAQ's and the brake options people have worked through in the past. I myself was going to do an EVO Brembo swap, until I really started looking deeper into it. The are huge and heavy and somewhat difficult to swap (custom parts, which need to be designed and built to a level you will trust your life to). So personally, I made the decision dollars for dollars, it's probably better at the end of the day to just head down one of the tried and true paths, with know pro's and con's. You will probably save money just buying someones kit. However that said, if you have your heart set on it, go for it! HybridZ is all about exploring options and making something new.

    Amazon? They sell everything.
  12. Never run a combination of solid and flexible mounts on the same component. A solid front diff mount with a poly bushing in a mustache bar is a mistake, either go poly/poly or all solid. If you run a combination the poly will flex slightly adding stress to the diff, and eventually something will fail. There are plenty of threads on here illustrating these failures.
  13. The slippery slope

    THIS! I agonize over these small details/imperfections in my build. If I keep chasing them trying to get it perfect, I am never going to get there. I don't have enough time/money/skill. However, I can building something really fun and cool. I have had cars that were total piles, but a blast to drive. Keeping this perspective is really important.
  14. Good call. Save money and keep hunting!
  15. I wish I had saved up and purchased a cleaner car the start with. I think I would have been WAY ahead, both time and money. Just something to consider. That will require some in depth fab work, both structurally sound and precise (enough) to keep the car straight. I wouldn't let that discourage you, but you should be honest about the amount of work, materials and tools required.
  16. 240z/280z front cross member

    My apologies, I just read your most a bit more carefully. 280z cross members are not completely identical, the horn part that has the rack mounts is larger, and the mounts them selves are wider. I believe (but I am not sure) that the racks are the same diameter. Check out this thread, These are 280Z rack bushings: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/23-4151
  17. vintage air drain hose

    It is located on the back side, toward the bottom, approximately center left to right. Its a right angle barb fitting. It should have come with a short length of hose to put on it. I have one in the box at home, I can take a pic for you this evening.
  18. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Correct, Bondo is 3M's brand name and became a standard term. I suppose "body filler" is what the pro's call it. Bog is way better.
  19. Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    Earlier I mentioned the 3M bodymans bristle disc, the purple ones. They are awesome for irregular shapes, or materials that overload sanding or convoluted disc (IE undercoating, seam sealer). https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/Scotch-Brite-Roloc-Body-Man-s-Bristle-Disc?N=5002385+3293083481+3294297763&rt=rud
  20. Bought wrong size muffler

    If the overall size still fits, I would get a 3.5 to 3 exhaust reducer, and move on. No biggie.
  21. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    I am totally calling bondo bog from now on. You are crazy for saving those doors, much respect.
  22. Good tip. I know a lot of people have had difficulty with burning plug wires.
  23. Project Binkey

    I think the original mini was approximately 1,400. I bet Binkey is under 2,000. I know they are adding a lot of creature comforts and even silly motorized bits. Side note, I really didn't think that motorized hood lift was a good fit for the project, but I am sure it impresses the masses (and brings them views). So I guess I get it.
