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.

Despite the modified cross-member, the Milodon Drag Race oil pan, #31145, would not clear.

The pan comes with a windage tray and double trap doors. The tapered sump measures 6" in front and 7 5/8" in rear.

I removed the interference portion of the pan at the front to allow cross-member clearance.

Mack, then expertly welded  a piece of metal to the pan to seal the front end.

This modification provided the necessary clearance.

The carburetor is a Pro-Form 750 double pumper with Pro-Series, dual needle and seat, float bowls.

CSU handled all the "blow through" modifications and installed Boost Referenced Power Valves in both metering blocks.

 

The following MSD components provide ignition:

    Billet distributor, #85551,

    6-BTM ignition box, #6462,

    and Blaster coil-2, #8203

The turbos, with Evolution Turbonetics waste-gates, have been attached to the headers and to the air-to-water inter-cooler.

The 3 1/2" inter-cooler outlet is now connected to the Extreme Velocity carburetor hat. A Greddy blow-off-valve vents pressurized air when the throttle slams shut.

Here is the installed CBR Performance radiator and Earl's Transmission cooler.

I made the front panels, on both sides of the radiator, through which the turbo intakes are protruding.

It appears Rustoleum's Automotive Enamel #252459 Cherry Red spray can paint, on the side panels, is a good match to the Z's body paint.

These pics show the other side of the turbo air intake tubes.

And, how the Spal fan and intake manifold coolant hoses are attached to the radiator.

I designed and Mack fabricated this electric water-pump and 6 gallon ice-water combination tank for the air to water inter-cooler.

A kitchen sink stainless steel screen strainer blocks the larger ice particles from entering the 25 gpm Meziere pump.

The tank fits securely and snugly between the Z's wheel tubs.

The Z has been repaired and is ready for action.

Since changes have been made, some tuning will be required.
