  1. You may be out of luck, as I can't think of a single flare that only flares the body by an inch, or less. If you're only looking for 1/2" - 1", I think you're looking at something custom. Pulling the fenders may be your best bet if you only need just a little bit more room.
  2. That's probably the one complaint I have about the Jenvey ITBs - they just don't look right. I've wondered if stripping them of their coating and giving them a more appropriate finish would help, but I guess this is another way of addressing that lol.
  3. Looking good! Hard to go wrong with blue on a Z. What's the color from?
  4. My car (not Z) sits about 4" off the ground, I wouldn't want to go any lower than that. Additionally, these cars are meant to be driven, lowering them such that they can barely be driven is just stupid. They're sports cars, not show cars.
  5. Impressive as always. Good to see your car is up and running again too, as last I recall you had some kind of failure that took it off the road.
  6. I have a motor with an N47 with liners removed, and was ported/polished that the previous owner built. I've done some research on the matter, and my understanding is that removing the liners is a bad idea. I believe the reason is that the ports end up too big, and the air velocity ends up too slow, which hurts flow, although you really research that for yourself further for the details. My understanding is that a head with exhaust liners can be ported and polished for some decent gains while keeping the liners in place, and for a more serious build, you'll want to use a head that never had the liners. Very interesting that you have a P90 with liners, I'd expect that to be a P79. Here is one thread that briefly discusses the matter. The consensus: a head with liners removed is junk.
  7. Like title says. Tried to report a spam post but I get this error. I'm also noticing that SeattleJester is no longer a mod, so looks like we might need some new mods too to take care of the occasional spam.
  8. In that case, I recommend you sign up on https://www.classiczcars.com/ as HybridZ is dedicated to modifying Z cars. Looks like a very nice car and I'm glad you're keeping it original. I don't think undercoating it would devalue it, especially since it serves to preserve the car.
  9. So what was wrong with the 280Z shell that you decided to use a 240Z shell that had been in an accident + needed a bunch of stuff bought for it? It didn't look that bad.
  10. +1 on the Z Car Garage kit, by all accounts I've read, they did the work so that you don't have to. It's extremely expensive, but if you value the ability to literally just bolt something onto your stock car and have it work with no hassle, then maybe it's worth the money. You think about the amount of time you might spend online researching the issues another kit might have, and then the money spent to resolve them, and suddenly the price tag doesn't seem so bad. I certainly have my eye on the kit. I believe they come with extremely thorough instructions as well.
  11. Not if it's been changed. Wouldn't be the first time someone swapped a VIN. I'd like a photo of the hatch area as well.
  12. Looks like it has the piece on the back under the tail lights that 77/78 280Zs had, so I'm thinking it's probably a late 280Z. I doubt anyone would put one on if it didn't already have it.
  13. There's no reason you can't just drive it around as is. That said, you're in Montana which is dry to start with, and the car is garaged, so it's not getting rained on, etc. I'm assuming your garage is dry. I doubt it'll rust to any significant degree even if left bare. Get some basic black spray paint from Home Depot and put a coat on. Should be fine.
