  1. Hey all, I finally have to give up on my swap. I started work on this project a few years ago when I had my own workshop, but after over two years of having nowhere to work on cars, it's time to give up on the idea that I'm going to finish this project in the near future. It makes me sad, but it has to happen. Here is the info on the car. Looking to get $10k, would rather not part it out but will if I have to. Car is located in the NJ/NYC area. PM me with any questions etc. 1970 240z vin #1905 Actual rust free, sub 100k car, parked in the 80's and revived by myself/EvilC disassembled to chassis, rustoleum applied on inside of floors, and BadDog Frame rails installed Sectioned struts/tokico illumina/ Complete poly bushings installed Brand New NOS Nissan fenders installed, still in factory black paint Crack free original early dash. AZC wilwood brakes installed front and rear, wilwood prop valve New Rota's with very fresh tires Dynomat/heat insulation installed under new carpet kit Car shaken down/tracked once at limerock with 240z driveline Installed VQ35de out of 2004 350z with trans Engine installed/mounted with kit 350z fuel system mounted/installed in clean 240z tank wiring harness purchased(not installed) from raw brokerage correct radiator/fan purchased, new in box Has been parked indoors I had a build thread here and a really extensive one on my separate blog if you want to check those out and see what the work looked like. http://southbronxspeedshop.blogspot.com/ http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/102695-zeros-240z/
  2. Hmm, that's a good idea. I'll look into that one.
  3. Hey all, I made and sold carbon fiber velocity stacks for DCOE and Mikuni carbs here a while back. That endeavor actually led me to start a company BlackBox Mfg. focusing on using additive manufacturing to reduce the cost of carbon fiber products. Since then I've had a number of interesting projects including a swingarm for lightning motorcycles and sit-ski's for the U.S. Paralympic Ski team. I figured now was a good time to reach back out the the Z community to see what parts you might want made. My in-house tooling methods limit the size of what can be made inexpensively and there already a number of people making body panels, so I'm thinking smaller than that. Let me know if there is anything you'd like made and I can figure out a cost. Best -Will
  4. Sorry Just saw this! I've got them for 110 plus shipping on ebay, but 100 for a HBZ member plus actual shipping.

    My SV650 is Dead

    I believe the welds cracked from the impact. Looking at the size of the dent in the frame, I suspect that the bike went reasonably high in the air before falling on the edge of the vault. A simple fall would not have cracked the frame like that or dented it for that matter. The bike also didn't get too hot. As you can see the actual heat damage was pretty small, and that part of the frame was actually pretty far from the flames. I will revive the bike, and I think I'll be leaving the burned panels on, hehe.
  6. My SV is dead. Last night around 9:30 the super in my building came to my apartment to tell me that my bike was on fire. Fearing that it had spontaneously combusted due to my poor wiring skills I ran outside. When I got out I discovered that my bike was on fire due to no fault of my own, or my bikes. As it turns out, a buried transformer flooded with the heavy rain we got last night and exploded. Apparently someone decided it was a good idea to have a gas line run in the same vault, which I parked above. The two, 300lb concrete and steel vault covers were blown into the air and my bike went with them. One went high enough to damage scaffolding that was 8' in the air and then land on an adjacent car. My bike then fell into the vault where the gas line continued to burn for many hours. Eventually the fire department hooked it to the ladder and hoisted it out of the vault. At night in the rain it looked like the damage might not have been that bad, but looking at it this morning, it became clear that it's a total loss, with the frame cracking at the two right front welds. Now I start the process of going after ConEdison. Luckily a friend has a sandy damaged bike that I could likely steal the frame from. Carnage below... Videos to follow
  7. Yes, actually! I made a set and some molds recently.
  8. Just shipped the first big order of 60+ to Australia. Selling these on ebay now. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301089497469?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  9. When this car is complete it would make for most impressive Tuned episode ever!
  10. Did I just spot your intake manifold in the Drive miata video featuring CJ Wilson racing? http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8EsO83qRYEk
  11. the build area is about 11x6x6. Honestly what I would do (and have been doing) for the larger parts is to print multi-piece molds and make the actual part out of CF or fiberglass. I've also had good luck with gluing ABS together to make a single part. Shapeways is a great service, but you certainly pay for what you get. What temps are you looking at with the pyrex? I like inventor, took a while to get used to it because I come from a Pro-E background, but it's pretty powerful.
  12. More types of stacks, slip in and bolt in 40 and 45mm. Different lengths available now as well.
  13. I've got a makerbot Replicator dual and a Relicator 2x, designing using Inventor
  14. FYI I have a couple of printers and have been running off small parts for people. I made these for a '70 challenger convertible top.
  15. Car I was looking at turned out to be too good to be true, so I'm keeping mine. Please close thread. Thanks
