Wow, glad you are okay. The Z looks like it will be better than ever!

 Thanks Bart...yes, I hope so!

That paint looks nice, and it seemed to get done quickly despite it being done as fill-in work. Mind PMing me the location or a website for the shop? I'll be needing paint eventually and I'm in the LA area.

Don't evaluate the time between primer and paint as realistic. I'm just now recently posting pics that were taken some time ago. The Z was in paint jail for 9 months before I got it back. Tom is backed up with paint jobs and won't do anything for a while.

Ah, that makes more sense. I'd still take that tradeoff if it came at a very good price. Not sure if you mind sharing what he charged or not.

The Z is at home but needs everything to be re-assembled.

 

Big 12" drilled and vented Wilwood 4-piston front brakes have been installed. It was a close fit but with custom off-set spacers the 15" Weld Drag-Light wheels fit.

 

The pic also shows the Techno-Toy-Tuning Tension Control Rod. This rod is much stronger than the stock Datsun unit and eases caster adjustment.

The 9" Ford differential received 11 1/4" Strange 4-piston disc brakes. The 9" is a Currie "Plus" unit with 31 spline axles and 5/8" wheel studs. The gears are 3.50's with a Strange spool.

Two Aeromotive A 1000, #11101, fuel pumps have their AN-10 outlet fuel lines joined by a Y to a single AN-10 fuel line. This line connects to an Aeromotive A 2000, #13202, Bypass Fuel Pressure Regulator. An Aeromotive,#15107, One-Way AN-10 check valve prevents reverse fuel flow through the inactive fuel pump when only one pump is running for street driving. However, both pumps are activated during racing. Two Aeromotive, #12304, 100 Micron fuel filters are plumbed between the fuel cell and the pumps.

 

The pics also show the Hal coilover shocks and 150 lbs. springs.

The 9" Ford has been painted Rustoleum satin black with a brush.

Brush streak marks add Character.....

I have been working on rewiring the Z and preparing the engine compartment for engine installation. The first pic shows the Motorsports Auto type 3 air-dam with fog lights, which I wired to act as turn signals.

The other pics show the Design Engineering Inc, #010399, heat screen with adhesive backing that can withstand 1200 F direct heat. The heat screen was applied to the areas where there was minimal header and down-pipe clearance.

Well....I'm cautiously optimistic that the body will be structurally sound! We will find out at the next race. HaHa...pea gravel and a safety net are an expensive modification.
