Hi Folks, maybe its interesting for some of you so I like to share the process on my Z with you.

Normally I import cars from JP to Germany but my Z is from the lone star state Texas and find its way to Germany this spring. 

 

Little curious story: The last TX owner lived 1mi from Gasmonkey Garage and as you all know they had build a Datsun before last Semi. I think mine was in too bad shape so Richard don't bought it for the build, but anyway.. 

 

I bought my car at the 19.03 this year from a Moviecardealer in Berlin and get it into m garage a few days later.

Because of oo many other project the car sits in my yard for some weeks before I can start. End of April I striped it down and get it blasted and primed.IMG_1722.thumb.JPG.3600c00080b9bc9e6925b5ed277d45e7.JPG

After That I had startet with some welding jobs, but theres nothing to bad so I will finish that next week and the car cango to the paint shop. This is hot it actually looks:

Some test fittings. I also cleaned put the whole engine bay and make everything smooth and nice.

Hi Guys,

little update: 

 

Had the engine testfittend this Week and install the front flares. Now the car is ready for the new paint. It would be RAL 7015 Slate Grey.

The engine looks so sweet in this huge engine bay but with the lines, hoses and ancillaries it would be nice and look very tidy. 

Tomorrow the car goes to the paintshop and I would start to work on the engine. All the axles are back from the coating so I can trow them together until car comes back :) 

 

Updates from engine and interior will come soon.

Nothing Major happened, but the car is at the paintshop :) Will get it back in 3-4 Weeks, I´m so excited. 

This weekend I will give my 1987 Honda Melody Scooter a little engine rebuild and had some costumer projects but next week the engine build and restoration of the interior will start :)

Another 2+2 in germany, seems like the 2+2 is more popular over there than over here!

 

It is very interesting, people usually get the front flare "right" but, the rear flares are always mounted a bit low. Like the body line that goes from the front to the back, you have the two bolt holes above the line in the front, but below the line in the rear. Is it the lack of the rear bumper that you loose the reference point? Or is it something else that made you mount them lower than the fronts?

That I´ll take the 2+2 was not planned, it can grab it for a very good price. An I like the 2+2, think it looks a little more massive in the rear. 

I mounted the Flares by following the shape of them. What you can't see in the photos is, that they are a little bit curved on the top so that way is the only way to mount them "flush"

where do you want to get the engine approved by TÜV/Dekra? Because anything above 40% more HP than stock won't be easy.

Edit: ahhh I just saw your limit is at 211 HP. Mine would be at 182 HP.

 

Ich glaube wir können das ja auch auf deutsch machen :D

Ja, du hast da recht, 210/211 Ps ist das, was ich darf. Ich mach den Import-Tuning-Krempel schon 10 Jahre und hab ganz gute Connections zum Tüv, aber seit ein paar Jahren stellen die sich mit der Leistung auch ziemlich an. Jetzt ist es so das ich die Leistung eingetragen bekomme, welche der Dyno ausspuckt und irgendwo zwischen Serienleistung des SR20 und den 210Ps liegt, zusätzlich werden LLK, Auspuff, etc eingetragen. Was am ende wirklich dabei raus kommt muss ja keiner wissen. Das war einer der Gründe warum es kein RB geworden ist, wobei ich mittlerweile mit der Wahl ganz glücklich bin aufgrund Gewicht, Gewichtsverteilung etc. Bei deinem wäre dann, zumindest auf offiziellem Weg, nur der CA18 möglich, wobei ob man den haben will steht auf nem anderen Blatt.

Wenn das meine bekannten mit CA18 lesen würden, wärst du gekreuzigt worden.:lmao: Sind alles SR20 Hater.

Ja der einzige Nachteil am SR20 ist der Sound, da klingt der CA18 schon besser.

 

Ich habe es für unsere anderen Mitleser auf englisch geschrieben.

Naja, so richtig toll find ich die von Klang her beide nicht, wenn man mal nen RB gehört hat.

 

Ne, also der CA ist für mich das schwarze Schaf der Nissan Turbo-Familie :D

Naja, Serie zieht der keinen Hering vom Teller und um etwas bumms da rein zu bekommen muss man gleich den ganzen Motor neu machen. Aber ich muss gestehen das meine CA-Erfahrungen nicht besonders groß sind, bekomme das nur immer so nebenbei mit und das sehr viele von CA auf SR swappen wird n Grund haben :D

Hübsch!

 

funk mal durch wenn du die Plastikteile der 280z Stoßstange loswerden willst. Bei mir sind einige gerissen und ich hätte gerne wenigstens die Option die zu nutzen.

 

Apart from that, yes, 2+2 were really popular when the car was new. Nearly 1:1 rartio here of Coupe and 2+2 whereas it was like 1:10 in america iirc.

Wheelbase->stability->autobahn  ;)

Was brauchst du denn genau? Meine ist ziemlich hin gewesen, aber vielleicht ist ja noch was zu gebrauchen was dir hilft.
