My god. I love it!
This is a superb built Z, love the dash >>>>
The z is out after winter storage...
Any new news?
Or videos ????
Cool video man! I saw that little blue "Like This" box in your post, and said, yes, I do like this. Upon clicking it I found got this:
It's the first time I've EVER hit one of those buttons....
Car looks great on track.
I currently run a 240z with standard 1jz which generally get used on track now so I'm building a mild 240 as a runaround. Couldnt think of a better engine than one from this family so bought myself a 3uz-fe with auto box, loom, ecu and all the little bit I thought I'd need. I've had it running for a bit on the floor while I finish the wiring ready to put it in the car. I'm now getting to the stage of engine mounts and in all the threads I've read, noone mentions them in any detail or show any pictures of what they have done. I'm not sure why but I'm thinking they are not easy. I have a front sump engine from a GS430 and getting a rear/mid sump is proving very difficult. I've taken a few measurements and think I can get away with the front sump but it's very close and the engine will need to be just off the baulkhead. Any chance you could take some pice of the mounts and how the sump clears the crossmember?
Rear sumps are really a mid sump(they don't go that far back)
The one on the right in the pic is from a 3UZ I put into a 928, on the left is early 1990's 1UZ (soarer? ls400?) I picked up to experiment with.
as you probably already know , 1UZ, 3UZ sumps are interchangeable,
ROVDriver hasn't logged on in almost a year but I was hoping someone may be able to answer my question. How did he do his dash like that? It looks stunning and it's exactly how I'd like mine to look!
The gauges are speedhut gauges. Looks like he had the dash wrapped in suede.
Separate alcantara sections stitched all together to complete a whole other level of material quality and visual niceness. I think his is one of the first dash and consoles to be done this way and in my opinion sets the bar for quality and craftsmanship. I am certainly going to follow his path with this.
I'd love to follow his method with the dash, I think it looks perfect! I'm just not sure where to start, I wonder who does this kind of work because I'm sure I'd mess it up
That many cuts aren't needed for stitching as I'm doing one top piece as in pic below
