  1. Tim's 302Z

    I can't believe I didn't see this build when you posted. Excellent fab work going on there indeed. Looking forward to more updates as they come about.
  2. Hood near SoCal

    I have an (originally starting as a '73 non vented hood) that I started to customize as a 280zx turbo replica. I stopped along the way as I changed engines from an L28et to a 2jzgte with the turbo and intake on opposed sides and also found a mint 280z vented that I will use. I had the hood paint removed and epoxy primered and a Naca duct welded into the drivers side so it sits just as the 280zxT does. I also was planning on welding in the passenger side which I have, but stopped as engine changes happened. It still needs some finishing hammer and dolly work. This would be beneficial for any L series engine with the Naca duct on the drivers side.
  3. 2jzge throttle body

    I have a spare Q45 90mm throttle body with the TPS that I won't be using if that's of interest to you. I could provide some pics after work if you care to see.
  4. Shakotan Z

    Have any more pics of the Z with the flares on ?
  5. Sign in if you own an s130!

    I often wondered what it would look like all completed with the hood. Looks fantastic!!
  6. 2JZ GTE VVTI 280Z swap/build questions

    Thanks Geno. Though not in a dire need at the moment for this part of the build was just looking into Wiring Specialties LQ9 kit and had book marked the Induction Performance IGN 1A kit and harness, but at $719 a kit and $599 for their harness was hoping for other options.
  7. Well done sir. It will pay off in the long run. I will be following as you have done with continuing on with the stitch welding.
  8. 2JZ GTE VVTI 280Z swap/build questions

    Geno750, Just to get this straight, you are using the IGN1A kit from Induction Performance correct? If so are you using their coil kit harness as well? Coils will need to be addressed eventually on my build and your feedback is valued by me.
  9. Best twinscroll manifold?

  10. You have me sold on this and when the time comes for that part of the build I will gladly get one. A nice move in the right direction to counter some of the heavy weight from a 2JZ swap.
  11. Djwarner, I am interested and will send a PM
  12. WTB: Weber or TWM Throttle Body

    I have a Weber 60mm throttle body that I will not be using. I bought this from a member here a long time ago and it has not been used, just stored in the parts collection.
  13. Top of Page button on site?

    Just wondering if I am this blind/stupid as to not see any top of page button to automatically return to the top. If this does not exist, could it be made to ?
  14. Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    It would be a tough pill to swallow going back on what you have already achieved, however all metal would be rid of rust. I know all too well about one step forward and three steps back as I have made a few costly mistakes along the way on my build, er, um Z build education. I had my car immediately epoxy primered by Bob the blaster using Endura epoxy primer. The car was on his car port in Jamul with body repair started for roughly 4 months with only a blue tarp and bungee cords holding it on. I then moved the car to my body/paint guys garage in El Cajon for a long while then had to move it to a rental garage in Chula Vista close to the San Diego harbor/ocean where it has been for at least 2 years. I have not had any re-rust issues I am happy to say so far. I have had alot of sand come out of the hidden cracks however as the car has been flat bed or moved on a car hauler from south SD to North county SD no less than 4 times n the highway. Hopefully most has shaken itself loose by now. I had an older gentleman who has been blasting for most of his life do the work and still had minor signs of warping. My body guy was not that pleased with the work ahead of him to get all straightened. It would be a tough decision to make to dip then epoxy, undercoat seam seal, but without a doubt will have eliminated all internal rust without warping any panels in the process.
  15. Blasting vs. sanding (rust repair)

    If I had the chance to strip my car again and the circumstances were not what they were at the time, (immediate place needed to house the car after as well as find a body/paint guy), I would have brought my car to a dipper in LA or checked out these guys in Oregon. http://www.metaldipping.com/faq.php Read the Common Questions section and see how many myths that are spread by people.
