Finland - highly skilled designer/fabricator of Z project

03 July 2017 - 02:15 PM

I will be in Helsinki while my wife is at a conference there Sept. 22, 23 and 24, 2017. There was guy (he might have been an engineer) who was an amazing craftsman who was making substantial modifications to his Z. I searched the members forum and none of the names of the members from Finland jumped out at me. I am not sure where he was located in Finland but I thought it was worth asking in this forum. Do any of the members from Finland or any of the long-term Hybrid Z members remember this person? I would love to see his project and talk to him if he is anywhere near Helsinki.

SEMA careers/jobs/internships/scholarships

05 January 2017 - 03:26 PM

I have no connection to SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) but as a now-retired career counselor at a local college, I think it can be useful for people seeking a career in the industry to explore their many resources. Automotive specialty equipment is a $39 billion industry and often can seem overwhelmingly big. Some years ago I had the opportunity to attend the annual SEMA show and, as an educator, I sought out all of the interns who were working the show. Every one of them mentioned how many employers expressed interest in them. By giving of their time and hard work during the show, they were very visible to the decision makers (attendance is limited to those working in the industry). I worked with several engineering students who, using the SEMA resources, were able to network their way into internships and then jobs upon graduation.

WTB: Hatchback stainless trim piece for 79 280 ZX

08 July 2015 - 07:20 AM

I purchased the piece I need.




I need just the lower (horizontal) stainless steel trim piece which surrounds the hatch window on a 79 280 ZX (coupe). I was told by a Nissan dealer that the part number for the entire trim set is 90350-P7100. Let me know if you have the piece I need or the entire set. Must be in excellent condition.

A nice resource although I wish all of the data panels that R&T has published over the years were available online.
