WOW!!! RWB Japan. That looks really good, too bad big wheels on a Z dont look good like they do on a porsche. Diameter not width.

1st, subscribed.  2nd, more pics of your z and love to see what you're doing with the front end.  3rd, what engine you running?  4th, wheels?
 
Reminds me of this extremely well executed Norwegian Z I found pics of a few years ago. Absolutely love the attention to detail on both front & rear and how they so cleanly transition to the flares!  Do you know the owner?

They look great! Do you plan on extending the front air dam to meet with the flares?

Hello I can post more pictures :) front bumper will be like the original but modified to fit flares. Front spoiler will also be slightly Datsun 240Z air dam + porsche ends to fit with flares :). I am developing the front spoiler now with fiber glass will post pictures during creation :)

The engine will be a RB26DETT with around 450hp-550hk. I found a n1 block on e-bay but he does not ship to Norway so it was very disappointing. This could've been a raw engine in my car: (

Wheels I have several nice options work vsxx 18 "/ 12" wide rear and 18 "/ 9 to 9.5" front

ccw wheels do not remember the series

The yellow dastunen in the picture. have hosted my inpirasjon since I saw it at the motor show in my home town several years ago

Car will be a bit like cobalt blue, not black as now

I bought the flares from a friend. used rear and front new. they come from a 1976 911 turbo mod

 

 

It was a huge job to fit the flares

Thanks for the help. Im in Australia and know some people who can do the job.

So are they the bolt on ('add-on) flares or cut off the actual replacement fenders/guards off a 911?

How much wider are these flares than stock lip or ZG's?.

Sorry for all the questions. Thanks
