Hello everyone! I present you my Zonda/Mercedes Benz V12 powered 280Z build. I've been working on this project for almost 3 years. I'll share more as I make new progress. :)

 

 

When I picked it up...

Rust.... Lots of it!

All frame rust done! Bad dog frame rails, coilovers, polyurethane bushings, seam sealed, and bed liner coated

Still needs new body panels. I've started, but I need to take pics.

Wow, you're ambitious. That's a lot of rust! Is 'earth' located in Canada? I've never seen rust like that in the strut towers.

A car is a hole in the air, suspended there by four rubber doughnuts which you can not eat.
Into this hole, you throw money, which you will never see again.

M156? I was planning on doing this exact swap next year! Those motors go for cheap! Vids when done!

No, this is an M120. M156 is the single cam, so you had plans for the single cam. They are "cheap" until you open them up for a rebuild or try to get a stand alone lol

Hahaha I meant to say M137 but typed M156 lol! I did manage to power wash the block so I can start honing the cylinders. Unfortunately Sunnen AN-30 silicone compound is out of stock through my supplier :( I'm going to make some calls tomorrow :)

Great build! I see you have poly bushing in your Tension Rods... Might want to take a look at the thread below, as there have been some rod failures due to them...
