    Been off the site for a few years.....

    There's still a few videos out on YouTube under kingpinracing too....
  2. Came across some pics of my old Z and realized I haven't been on this site for a few years. Sure do miss working on the car and all my e-buddies here who helped me solve build problems. And I really miss driving the Z. It had a 400+hp LS1 and cornered like it was on rails. What ever possessed me to sell it???
  3. Dude, I lost your contact. Just want to touch base 661-910-5467. Take care

    1975 280Z LS1-6spd

    This one is sold!!
  6. A suggestion......before you weld up the spare tire hole and mount the gas tank, cut youself an access panel in the new sheetmetal so you can remove/replace in in-tank fuel pump. Dropping the tank later to do any work on the pump is a giant pain. Ask me how I know.

    1975 280Z LS1-6spd

    Ok, a whole year has gone by and this car has been standing in the garage basicly unused, so it's time to put it out there again. If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM....
  8. If you're on a limited budget you really should re-evaluate your plans. My LS1 conversion was also over $30k. Alot of that was fluff, like stainless hardware, but with a 35+ year old car you're gonna find lots of stuff that needs rebuilding or replacing, especially if you intend to power it with over 300hp. Not to be self serving, but have you considered buying a 'completed' one (like mine) that can be had for a lesser expense?

    The flares were from MSA. Unfortunately they're no longer shown in thier catalog.

    Molding ZG flares into the Z body?

    Mine aren't ZG flares, they're from MSA. http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/7BSA02/50-1565

    To see what fiberglass flares look like moulded onto a Z, go to my vids on YouTube under Kingpinracing.

    LS1/LS6 Fuel Mileage

    I'm one of those crazy Camaro guys who claim 30+mpg on the freeway. My 99 SS with LS6 heads & cam got over 35mpg one time between Phoenix and Yuma. An elevation drop from 1800ft to sea level over 135 miles going about 60 miles an hour. My Z with a 2002 LS1 with a HotCam and longtubes gets 15-17 in town and 26 on the freeway. I had hoped for over 30, but 26 ain't bad.
  14. The other option would be to lower the car. How about sectioning the struts and going with coilovers?

    Ft. Fender foam mounting pads

    Check out the Grainger and McMaster catalogs. Lots of solutions there...
