Santa, if you want to go over that list, let me know.
You still alive, did you ever finish your conversion?
It'd be great to find out.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Astroboy... Well not exactly, we had a kid so that's slowed thing up quite a bit. The swap is still "in process" but I've been adding to the build here and there. I have picked up a lot more 350Z parts like an LSD and leather seats and such. Hopefully this spring I'll get back into things since my girl doesn't require 24/7 attention anymore. I'm happy to chat about any of it though.

Phar, my friend. We are in similar boats. hahaha.
It's amazing how much time they require. Kids that is!
I can't remember if you were going with a nats based installation or removing it? I do hope you're doing well though.

Hi Astro... I am keeping NATS to make it harder to steal the car. Nats is the antenna ring around the key slot, and the BCU and ECU all run through the dash harness (body harnesss #1) along with the A-Amp that runs the tach gauges etc. I'm swapping in the 350z steering column, and it's mostly bolt in with a bracket under the dash and a spare steering Ujoint. (gives me the 350z/G35 steering wheel too with the cruise buttons.) Nats is no big deal if you have the original BCU and ECU from the donor car. (or a paired set) you can get a new key programmed from the original Vin# of the donor too.
I hope to get mine running this summer, now that my daughter is older. I had pulled everything to go for paint, but I've been tempted to just get it going then paint later. I drove my buddie's 240z last week, now I'm jones'n for an S30 fix...
Let me know what questions you have.
