Hi i have been lurking around on Hybridz for years and years for info but just recently joined. I have been around cars forever but just recently started a z project finally! I love these cars and have wanted one for years. I figured a good way to get myself out there was to start a build thread. I have had this car for a little over a year now, previously my dad owned it since 2006 but its been sitting for a few years. I started working on it last winter so i will try and catch up to where I am now.

 

 

This is as of 2006 when my dad got the car.

and this is when i got the car last summer

once i got it home i was in the middle of another project. I didnt really get started on this one until January of 2015. I started stripping down the car.

Whomever originally did the car did some questionable things that will have to be fixed, the fenders looked like hell...

all of the suspension is pretty much from techno toy tunning. Summit racing heater, JDM taillights and mirrors.

after the rear was done I got the engine bay ripped apart. some of the, "fixes" that had previously been done were questionable at best. all had to be cut out.

What did you line the underbody and floors with? And the engine bay? The project looks really great so far!

Its 3M undercoat. inside just the floors and tunnel are done. In the engine bay I was using POR15 chassis black top coat but it would not lay even and i did not like how it came out. So i did the 3M over top and I think it looks good.

Last week i got the hubs all rebuilt and on the car.

I had a issue with the wheels clearing the T3 LCA and outer tie rods. I talked to someone who said they removed the RCA and it cleared, I did not want to have to do that so i opted to order the NCRCA from T3 and hopefully i can pull out enough camber with the camber plates. Possibly bigger wheels are needed in the future.

yes it is a R180, but its a "K stamp" so its out of the early S12 not a z. it has a 115mm ring gear where the R180 out of the z is a 110mm. i have only seen the OS giken in the 115mm R180, but i know that quaife makes one for the R200.

Edit: they do make the OS giken for the R200

Love this build!, and it's coming along at a good pace. Where did you get the vented inspection doors from? I had MSA do mine many years ago, but they only had 4 vents added to them.

I found them on eBay, there is a guy on there that does it and sells them. User name arizonas30 and there well priced and no core is required. But he will buy your old ones too.

Hey just realized that you're from Seattle! Welcome aboard. Very slick build - looks like you're clipping along at a pretty steady pace.

Tuned in for the progress.
