So over the weekend I finally found a decent 260z to start my build I've been wanting to do since about 2008. Like most z cars it has it's rust and it needs alot of stuff. But I was kind of looking for one with those needs. I don't have a ton of pics yet but I have started a little of the teardown. The second pic of it is after I got it home and into her new home.

Update. This weekend I am picking up a t56 transmission out of an 05 Vette for 200 bucks. It needs 3rd fixed. I couldn't pass on the deal. And I'm picking up a gen 3 5.3 long lock for the rebuild for 300bucks. 500 for drivetrain is pretty good deal imo. Anyone rebuilt the t56 themselves?

Another update with a few more pictures. Sorry for the terrible pics my shop still doesn't have power....hopefully getting that fixed by the end of the month. Got the 5.3 and tremec t56. Also got the hood and hatch off and more of the interior pannels out. Most are in pretty decent shape. Gonna get new door skins and lower rear quarters made at a local shop. Mine had bad water damage. But I still have most of them for a decent template.

On the front window, you can use a razer blade and run it along the inside at a 45* angle cutting towards the glass. This should cut right between the glass and the metal. If your windshield has been replaced, I have had good success with using a flat head slipped under the seal from the inside and "pushing" the windshield out without damaging the glass or the seal... but that was on a new seal that had been on the car 2 years not the oem after 40.

How are you going to convert that transmission to make it usable? Is it easy to do?

Umm I wouldn't say it is easy. But I have to tear this one down anyways so swapping the housing and required items if bought new from GM cost around 450-550 ish putting me at 650-750 for a stronger fbody t56
