  1. More eye candy tonight. I am so glad I assembled the pedals before putting the floor in. It took me 4 hours to get the MCs correct, set the throttle linkage, and get everything tight. I left access to do this stuff from the topside, but I am sure it would have taken twice as long. Only thing left before I take it off rotisserie is assembling front struts and taking measurements to put into the suspension software.

  2. Just a very small update. While preparing the passenger side fender for the bodyshop, i realized i dont have any nice fender emblems anymore, so i immediately ordered a set, since i saw they were still available new from Nissan: Nothing crazy, but another little piece of the Puzzle is ready to be installed, once the shell and body panels are painted...

  3. This community is not what it used to be, but the flame keeps burning. Maybe not as many replies as you might have gotten in the past, but also not as many assholes. Again, all of is that follow you recognize this is a project you are taking the time to make it right and it's not going to disappear unfinished. And keep in mind you could probably message most any other member for advice if you needed.

  4. @jhm thanks John!! I found a pair for a reasonable price on the eBay site you shared and got them on order. Many thanks!! Now to noodle a flare option and get it all mounted before I finish bodywork dunno what I’d do without this community. Thanks all

  5. In my experience, the metal will rust under the filler if you don't first seal the metal with epoxy paint. This exact situation was occurring with the hood I'm restoring on my build page - rusty metal under the filler. Is it a real problem? I don't know for sure. There was no sign of rust from the outside...but it was definitely there, and the reason I prefer to put epoxy down first, then filler.

  6. Removed all the body leading. Not clear if this was factory or from a previous repair. Will do some welding to bind the seams, the apply short-stranded fiberglass filler to fill the gap. Took a DA sander to existing finish. Lots of body work ahead. IMG_8413.MOV

  7. That is an interesting thought. I may think about that more for a future project. For this car, the fenders pop off and the strut top falls in your lap after you take the strut nut off. I am going to leave some relatively long flex lines to the brakes so they don't become the only support. I think I can change springs real quick at the track.

  8. Had a great weekend watching Jason's 3,000 lb datsun put down low 10 second passes effortlessly using the super 8.8 setup on cheap coilovers and stock control arms. He pulled a personal best of 9.9 @ 134 at the end of that weekend.

  9. Went to replace the rear wheel bearings on my Z and found this! Looks like the previous owner cut off the old bearing and took part of the stub axle with it. Please send me a PM if you have one. There are pairs on eBay but I don't need a set nor the companion flange or other parts. Just the stub axle. Thanks.

  10. Another cool product I have found is the "Steel it" stainless steel spray paint. I think i will use it on some suspension parts. Kind of a dull silver finish, but durable as hell. A can is Expensive and does not last long but it is a great coating. I bought mine from McMaster Carr.
