  1. Port lid for the new surge tank done, now for the guts of it next week all
  2. Thanks Buddy We are all a bit insane to have started these projects so no holds on how we accomplish the result I say
  3. When necessity is the mother of invention Core of the tank is now complete and can now to move onto all the ancillary pipes and fittings I’m having an alloy surge tank fabricated to sit inside one of the storage bins then route fuel and vapor lines between the 2 within an enclosed alloy conduit An alloy bolt down lid will be made for the main tank where I’ve provisioned the access hatch and on which the pump filter etc will hang off for the main tank I still have to weld in a filler neck and breather to the main tank to the vapor tank also Then finally a round alloy plate will go over the top of the tank to seal it off from the interior and meet certification requirements
  4. Been a few weeks, unfortunately illness and waiting for John Lange to finish the custom rear control arms have slowed me down So moved onto the rear fuel tank fabrication, using the LPG donut tank as the basis First was chopping 65mm out of the height through the centre aa well as removing the center tube section Then it was a matter of fabricating a centre rise section to clear the spare wheel well hump With the modifications, I’ve worked out it should be between 58-60 litres plus another 8-10 in the additional surge tank All in all so far a perfect fit See you all next week
  5. Been a busy past 2 weeks but made some progress today Chassis reconfiguration is now flush with the new rails Gearbox rear mount is next up
  6. Fancy you writing this on my build thread and then me spending the last hour at 4am catching up in yours “Fantastic project and work. Every aspect of your metalwork is so impressive. Honestly, it almost looks like you could have just built a new Z from scratch!” Seriously? You kidding me right? I mean my work looks like the construction on a sardine can compared to this Hercelian “Transformers” build......... Pfffffffffffft I am seriously going to raid some ideas 💡 I got from your thread and also outright steal others. Please don’t leave any more sarcastic comments on my thread LMAO 😆
  7. Thanks buddy but it gone the final step and now I’m truly over the hump 2BFE69E9-F883-4167-ABC1-E03B1ADF436D.MOV
  8. Tomorrow’s next adventure CAD design of the front tunnel section ;)- John
  9. Thanks Dave yeah it’s a journey as you well know, sometimes it’s well mapped out and others you literally trip over what you’re looking for if any of the info or ideas I post here helps another member out then I’ve done my duty how goes your pony Dave ?
  10. Sometimes you stand back and think, I could have done better, today was one of those days, so a bit more thought, polished up on my metal shaping and sliced and diced before playing geometry on a sheet of metal and then “HAND BENDING” the tunnel ! A priceless day having reached a mile stone. Cheers John
  11. Tunnel sections are still being mocked up so in the meanwhile focused my attention on fabricating the new seat rails. basically because I’m dealing with a flat pan the seat rsils sandwich that pan to the new rails and lock in to each rail i have 2 options, slice them so I can notch in the tunnel or leave them and later install a series of rivet nuts so I can add an aluminum plate enclosing the tail shaft once installed to create a totally flat pan i also received a new addition this week, integrated air and heating HVAC with full climate control, it’s about 25% smaller than the original Z set up so this is going to be aninteresting mod once the tunnels in place and I can mount the dash to work out the hanger points and fresh air feed Cheers John
