Picked up this non-running '73 240Z in Wisconsin, it came with an R200 (which I had planned to use, but am now going Ford IRS 8.8) and a mess of other stock parts. It looked to be perfect for what I was building and after media blast it's quite solid other than floorboards so here we go.
Parts already here
-LS3 TR6060 dropout from a 2010 Camaro w/ 30k miles (lookup Midway Mustang Dewitt IA)
-CXRacing LS swap kit w/ headers and y pipe
-CXRacing Front LCAs and TC rods
-CXRacing adjustable coilovers
-T3 Rear LCAs
-Silvermine billet front 5 lug hubs
-Silvermine front wilwood brake kit
-Zedd FIndings Floorboards
Parts to order
-T3 rear backing plates
-T3 rear strut tubes
-Ford Explorer 8.8 Diff
-Z32 rear 5 lug hubs and brakes
-Wheels/Tires, S71B ~17x11 (5.5 backspace) and 17x9.5 (4.9 backspace). 315/35R17, 275/40R17
-Flares (TBD, maybe SSWorxs???)
My rear end will largely be based on Sunny Z's build. Digging through the wheel forums it looks like 5.5" backspace on the rear is doable, any advice here on whether 5.5 is too much? The T3 plates should put the wheel in the stock location.
