Hey all.  I've been feeling all nostalgic and regretful...

Anyone here still own HLS30-17955?  I hope it's still alive somewhere.  I forgot who bought it.

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.

I swapped in my NA L28 and 5speed, did the R200 diff conversion with a Ron Tyler mount, put my spare dash in, bought a used wiring harness for it, and did actually get it running and driving. However, as I took it apart I also found a good deal of rust, some of which will be very difficult to fix, so it is now sitting in my barn while I figure out what to do with it. Decided to focus on my 280z instead which should be easier to fix.

Man, I miss having a Z.  That's too bad about the rust.  I never actually had any of the body panels off except for the hood.  I'm glad it didn't get sent to the crusher.

Yeah there was a good amount hiding under weatherstripping, inside panel seams, under paint, etc. It's kinda weird in that no one spot is really severe, save for the hatch sill panel, but there's a LOT of small spots, a number of which are in tricky areas. Funny, I actually bought it because it had less rust than the car I had. So much for that.

 

We'll see how I feel about rust repair after I finish my current project.
