  1. I love the fact that you've left the front bumper on it as a visual break point for the grill. When the grill is fully exposed it just feels out of proportion to me. I also like how you've pulled the lower lip of the front spoiler under instead of forward. Following the wheel arch line just makes the whole thing flow very nicely. I would actually prefer it without the splitter, but that's just my taste and I realize that it's probably quite functional. Looking forward to seeing the side view(s).

    How to remove black oil spot from the seat!!??

    No, it's just an opinion and I should have stated it that way. I just assumed that anything that smelled that way would be damaging to the foam but I've been wrong before.

    How to remove black oil spot from the seat!!??

    Yes, brake clean on upholstery is a very bad idea. I would use SImple Green concentrate, not mixed with water yet, and spray a small amount on the oil stain. Take a clean dry towel and blot the spot, do not rub! I'll repeat it, do not rub! Repeat this until no more oil is transferring to the rag and then take a clean wet cloth and rub the spot to start getting the Simple Green out. Once the area is wet you can blot it with a dry cloth to help get the Simple Green out and repeat. It's worked on some greasy stains for me in the past. Good luck with whatever method you choose. I've also had great luck with a foaming cleaner called Tuff Stuff but it's probably too weak for this. It does clean up an interior really well though!

    2x3 frame rails on a 280z

    I did 1x3 subframes on mine but also replaced the floor pans with custom built ones that are flat on the bottom. I replaced the front frame rails with 2x2 as well so the front tie in is different from stock rails. Here's what mine looks like and we capped the open ends of the 1x3 with a piece of sheet metal welded solid.

    Rotisserie Measurements

    I don't have any of the measurements you're looking for but I do have the plans that I followed to build my rotisserie and photo references of the completed build. I believe that the rotation point was around 27" down from the top of the 60" upright. The car would rotate 360 degrees but I never quite got the balance right so I could still rotate it alone but it was a bit of a challenge. Plans I followed are here. Photo references are here.
  6. Money received and will ship out priority mail on Monday. Thanks for an easy transaction.
  7. I originally bought it from my best friend and now he has it back again. I will be highly involved in the build and wind up with full access to it in the end. All the Z stuff is with the car still.
  8. Up for sale is one of the original kits Juan from JSK produced to utilize massive 12.2"x1.25" curved vane directional rotors and FORGED 4 piston Wilwood calipers. This is a 4 lug setup and you must run a 280z hub. This is intended for racing and was one of the earliest options we had for truly good brakes. Price is $125 shipped to the continental US. You will need to source the rotors, calipers, pads and brake lines. (See Ebay links for examples) All hardware and installation instructions are included. I don't have my Z anymore and my buddy who now has it doesn't want to run these for some reason. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wilwood-Brake-Rotor-32-Directional-Vane-Carbon-Iron-Psgr-Side-Universal-1602894-/191954357091?hash=item2cb15f0b63:g:DUsAAOSwgZ1Xv23W&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wilwood-Brake-Rotor-Series-32-Directional-Vane-Carbon-Iron-Natural-Drv-Side-Univ-/191404092017?hash=item2c9092aa71:g:o7gAAOSwrklVAT8a&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wilwood-Forged-Superlite-Internal-Brake-Caliper-120-11127-/191983652353?hash=item2cb31e0e01:g:AGMAAOSwcUBYI3kF&vxp=mtr http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wilwood-Pad-Set-BP-10-7420-FSL-SL4-6-/232272402336?hash=item36148397a0:g:pKoAAOSwXYtYyd4U&vxp=mtr
  9. My Trans Am is down for the count right now and I don't have the funds to get it back together before the event. This is the "School" or the infield course and it's a lot of fun. I've instructed a few times with them and it has always been a quality event. I encourage anyone who has been thinking about doing a 2 day track event to try this first and see if you like it. Here is some video from several years ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmTnx_EslMc
  10. My completely bare 260Z body shell weighed 520 lbs. if that helps any.

    Removable core support

    I replaced the front frame rails and installed subframe connectors so yes I tied it together while I was doing that much work. That top brace was originally on a friends 240Z with a V8 swap and it held up just fine with factory frame rails. I know I have pictures of his car somewhere but they're either on a disk or an old removable hard drive.

    Removable core support

    I had to replace the frame rails on mine because of a botched repair from a previous collision so I did a removable core support while I was in there. Welded tabs to the inner fenders and the new core support bolts to the tabs. I haven't mounted the radiator yet so this is as far as I've gotten in the process and I haven't touched it in a while at this point.

    Autoxers is good peeps...

    Jon, racers are an amazing group and it always does my heart good to help someone else because I believe in karma so what goes around comes around. I was at Daytona a few weeks ago running a PDX with the local SCCA and one of the students boiled his brake fluid. His instructor was a friend of mine and with my jack, tools and brake fluid we had him going again. He tried to pay me for the brake fluid and all I told him was to pay it forward some day. So next time someone needs help now it's your obligation to be there. I know you know this already though.
  14. I've run the HT-10's and DTC-70's on the front of my Trans Am and the 70's are a wonderful pad but probably too aggressive. I'm probably going to step back to the 10"s for the next set and would imagine that on the rear of a lighter Z-car they would be the way to go. I've never played with the Porterfield's so no help there.
