So I'm buying a house and will be renovating it for a few months soon, so the z will have to wait a bit until I'm done in order to get fully finished sadly. With that in mind, I went into hustle mode and just started piecing together all the little things that needed to go back on. First up are the headlight buckets. My friend taigon was nice enough to give me a metal drivers side bucket as mine was fiberglass and no longer fit. I straightened out some metal on the front drivers side where there was a crumple about a year ago and what I didn't realize is that by straightening it out I also mis aligned everything, so my bucket on that side did not mount anymore. THe metal one at least mounts at one spot and then the screws going into the fender are mountable too, but you can see the gap towards the front of the inside. Oh well though! this thing is being built for weekend fun so I'm not too worried. I think I'll probably end up using mounting pins on the hood too or something, as these don't fit. I also re welded the bracket for the front grille on in it's current position, so If I ever went to "fix" it then I would also need to re align that. the hood pins seem a lot easier ha.
I also put the front lip on! I have waited for a long time to do that one. It turned out pretty good I feel! Also, the engine bay flap things are on with their clips too, stoked!
then theres a bunch of other little stuff! the horns, good popper, rear wiring threaded through the body, etc.
mishimoto radiator, new hoses on everything, caps on the A/C ports that I'm blocking off, new oil filter and topped her off with some oil!
also got a lot of new hoses for the gas tank and hooked them up, along with the vent canister. Now I'm waiting for a bunch of goodies I ordered to be able to get her running, including the fuel neck, long battery cable to move the battery out of the engine bay (since I removed the cancerous tray), the exhaust gasket, etc.
My fun money disappeared ever so quickly, and now I am at a loss for funds once again haha. I will update soon! She's almost back on the road! Then it's a bunch of tinkering!
