  1. Feel free to be my guest to give a guy money who literally advertises this photo as a sign of his work. This isn't about being superficial. There's so much then that. Please read the disclaimer to his website about his parts and tell me that doesn't worry you at all.
  2. First off: BOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Second: You'll probably have an easier time selling that if you spend the 250 or so dollars on some interior vinyl to make it look less "project car".
  3. Or just pay what he's asking for. You sold it to him for 3700 5 years ago, he wants 4600. That's actually 900 dollars difference, for him storing it for 5 years. If you know of a place that'll store a car for 180 bucks a year, let me know.
  4. Buy that before he realizes that someone who doesn't know about the rusty areas will easily buy that for 7k. Then fix the rusty areas. It's just metal. They have more. Also he stored it for you for 4 years...that's worth something.
  5. While not the exact same engine, Ron put 1/2" spacers under the front crossmember for his S52 powered Z. They don't screw with suspension geometry enough to really matter (you could always correct it if you're crazy). You can also buy them from Jags that run for pretty cheap. https://jagsthatrun.com/collections/datsun-z-parts/products/dat-105-spacers-between-body-and-front-crossmember-one-pair
  6. Ben I've got a pair of the TechnoToyTuning front arms that I havn't installed yet on my Z if you wanna come check them out in person.
  7. You don't need a surge tank. A lot of people run them so they don't get fuel starvation in hard long corners when your fuel level is low.
  8. I know I've seen shadier and less professional websites... ...but I can't think of many. Good luck to anyone who gives them money.
  9. While I am electarded, it seems to me you could combine the Pink and Orange wire? This makes sense to me, and I would love to hear why it's a terrible idea and won't work at all.
  10. Got a link to the tool? Also, any pictures of how you modified it?
  11. Can you flip it half way through? It's safety wire holes. They don't have to 100% line up.
  12. Personally, I would try and take all the useful bits off of it (glass, suspension components, the doors?, etc) and scrap the frame. It really does look bad.
  13. Oh yeah, that would be the way easier route... https://www.mcmaster.com/safety-wire-screws Any of those work?
  14. Everything is repairable. It all depends on how much time and money you want to sink into it. Do you have a welder? How comfortable are you with the idea of forming sheet metal?
  15. Go really slow when drilling bolt heads and use cutting fluid. Be prepared to break a lot of those tiny drill bits.
  16. The R33 GTST uses a shortnose R200. It'll be a similar solution when using a 240sx or even Infiniti Q45 diff. You'll need custom axles, which will connect to a custom hub. Techno Toy Tuning makes that setup.
  17. People with actual eyes can usually see that this thread is over 8 years old.
  18. If you're gonna polish the aluminum, leave it bare. Otherwise, paint it.
  19. Anything is possible. How much will it cost? No idea. But this guy might know.
  20. You're gonna have high presure fuel pump issues, but other then that, GO FOR IT! EWS (CAS now) is probably going to be an issue, as BMW's in the past (from E36 on IIRC) require the key to the car, the tumbler it goes in, and the engine ECU for it. Otherwise, standalone ECU's can be used. Another issue is the driveshaft. Most BMW's use a guibo (a big rubber donut) to attach the driveshaft to the transmission. They then have the slip yoke half way through the driveshaft to allow for chassis flex and engine movement. As the S30 is so short, you'll pretty much have to cut your driveshaft down to a one piece shaft as there will be no room for a center support bearing. People much smarter then me have said that as long as you have the driveshaft that has the CV joint end, that should allow enough play that you'll be fine. Will it make more power and/or cost less then an LSx swap? Not even close. It's a terrible idea that no one should do. Should you do it though? Absolutely! It's cool, and it's what you want, and it'll be interesting and infuriating and you'll learn a ton.
  21. Move the mounting hole aft, run the sway bar so it goes behind the drop down suspension mounts. Add additional spacers as need be to make sure there's no binding.
  22. If you're asking that question, you can't do it. Either spend a ton of money having an auto fabrication shop doing all the work for you, or change your mind on doing it. If none of those options are suitable for you, then spend hours and hours learning to fabricate and pour over other peoples build threads until you can find enough similarity in swapping some engine into a Subaru, and swapping an RB engine into something that normally doesn't have one.
  23. I do so love the insane amount of attention to detail you're putting into this. You're going to have a flawless car when this is all done. Keep up the great work!
  24. Craigslist is always a good bet to find parts for 280z's, but unless a member chimes in, there's always the following. Cheapest: https://zcarsource.com/front-hub-260z-280z-74-78-used Newest: https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/260z/4-lug-front-hubs-datsun-260z-and-280z
