    This week it is time to prep the body of the Z for primer.

    It took a lot longer than I had hoped, but I finally get the body work finished and get into painting some high fill.

    I wasn't happy with the results of my compression calculations previously, so I have had the head shaved again and it is time to recalculate.

    This week it was time to start cleaning up the engine block and paint it up ready for the rebuild. Jeff

    This week I have chosen to have a big swing at getting the bodywork on the Z finished.

    This week I have got myself some extra valves to replace the dodgy ones I had previously, so I get them lapped to fit and then move on to more body work.

    This week I learned a lot more about engine rebuilding and I lapped the valves. I then needed to work out my engines compression which meant CC'ing the combustion chambers.

    This week I get stuck in to do the final alignment of all the panels and start the body filler. It is a slow process, but if I want it done right I need to take my time and keep plugging away at it.

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    I finally threw in the towel and I bought a new repro bonnet for my Z. It took a lot of time, but I finally have it all fitting up the way I wanted.

    Parts for Z's are generally reasonable. Parts for Porsche's are insane, I originally thought I would build my 911 as a track/street car, but I soon learned I couldn't afford the maintenance costs. That said, I have even looked at getting an MX5 as a track car, as they are much more affordable than Z's now, and you can trash the hell out of it without worrying if you break it.
