I spoke last week to someone who wanted to paint his 240z in     nissan 564 mount fuji blue.

 

Has somebody a link to some pics from this colour?

 

Thanks Jack

Nothing not to like in this! The guy is a true artist.. A crafstman of the old style molding and panel beating.. But only in his 30's.

Actually the pictures dont do it justice.. The attention to detail in this is jawdropping. Its perfection.. Haha Jack is like a monk.. Haha see,s like woring on the car is meditating.

Hey Jack280, Im dying to see pre-op pictures!
I can somewhat make out what you did, but not completely.

Its been a while since I read completely through your thread, but I remember searching for pictures of you cutting it up and I could not find anything. Yours is the cleanest looking chop top Ive seen ever seen. If your willing to share your secrets Im sure Im not the only one that's curious where you made your mods.

I could not find any pics from nissan mount fuji blue, so i bought some paint to make a color test on some parts and a scale model. 

It is very hard to get the color right on the picture, but the scale model comes close to reality. I can try to make some better pics by daylight fom the car.

This is just a mockup to try my options. The charge cooler is from a Jaguar x300 and welded to a modified injection intake. My plan is to put the m90 on a l28, but that engine has to be built from begin to end.

I have a running n/a L26 to put in the car when ready some time.  When the car is running i can put the turbo with charge cooler on the L26 without modifications on intake and exhaust........ as far as I can see right now.

 

I DONT have plans to use both together.
