  1. I was thinking that to, size 235 on 15*9. Thank for the feedback! I like the colour choice. It was my initial choice then decided to stick with blue as the original colour.
  2. Thank you for the advice. I'll look up the rule book for each choice.
  3. Cool build @Dat73z waiting for 1st start video! Something (turbo+carbs) I've been curious especially with carbs. Most curious, what size are your tyres? I like your wheel tyre set-up (no stretch)! My set-up: 15*9, 205/50r15 (stretch😐).
  4. I know that GREAT feeling when you're about to close the garage door and you glare at the car once more 🤓. And just feel so PROUD! 🤗 I plan to finish the clear sand/polish (can painted) after your feedback. @A to Z keep up the process!
  5. Safety is the key factor to having happy customers. Keep up the remarkable work horny Zed guy, Derek!
  6. @AydinZ71Nice work!! I admire the beautiful work. I began HPDE (2 events: Nelson and Mid-Ohio) this month with my daily (Elantra GT) and I'm thinking on a stock track car. Something to will eventually spank Porsche's on the straights with work.😉 The Elantra is doing that on corners 😇 I'm debating on putting the 240Z (blood, sweat and tears+love) on track or get a 280z (rust resto then track build with more track experience in it) + storage. I'm learning a lot from your blog/forum!
  7. Hi, I kinda figured you were in the Wake area from the pic of the missionary baptist church and one way lane test track video. Awesome build and good to have more zed fanatics in NC!! I haven't logged on for a while, but read you build and had to say 'hi & kudos'. I own a 73 240z. Finally running/driving, currently tuning. I reside in Wake area, but temporally at Troy NC (also car).
  8. is the differential still available? I can come to pick it this weekend if available and possible.
  9. Hello All, I own a 73 240z. Im having problems getting the rebuilt motor to run. And would like some advice and help. Motor Specs: 81 280ZX lower block with standard size flat top pistons, rebuilt. 73 240z heads cylinder cleaned, rebuilt and valve change. the camshaft is a Schneider 274F. (The head was "decked" bottom resurfaced) an E12-92 equiped distributor. SU carbs with 73 intake manifold (Unknown yr of SU's). header in 6 - 2 outlets(No muffler yet). 82 280ZX 5 speed transmission. Mechanical pump. MOV_0325.mp4 The car has been hesitant to start but doesn't. I rebuilt the carbs and found one of the jets was seized. i did change the jets with new ones from Walker rebuild kits. I sized the floats according to the walker guidelines, but once installed no pressure was going into the empty float tank. I resized the floats and tested by blowing throw the fuel inlet for passage and also while installed. I filled the float tank slightly with fuel and installed everything. The float sealed due to the fuel inside the tank. Did the same for the rear carb. I had a difficultly understanding camshaft timing, then found an hybridz post MSD video that helped. The initial pics are the cam set at 2nd notch with the dash slightly to the left of the groove. Both 1st cylinder lobes pointing in a v pattern at TDC. Upon cranking, motor was hesitant, but didn't start. No starter fluid used. No backfire or smoke from carbs or exhaust. The 2nd pics posted are the same setting, but set to 1st notch with dash slightly to the left of the groove. A whine upon cranking. Had to use starter fluid. It would bob and backfire on both the header and carbs. Rear carb backfires loads, sometimes spits sparks!! The front carb hesitates when fluid is sprayed and the rear backfires and sometimes out of the front carb.The carbs are turned 2 revolutions down from the top flush. I drained the float tanks twice and there was fuel inside. Now, I need advice and help before I burn this beauty!! Any advice on using schneider 274F cam? how to set cam timing for such cam. Cant upload the videos, Ill try to attach them.
  10. whoa!!! Amazing... I've put my 240z project due to not knowing how to fabricate the whole rear taillight valance. I shall extensively consider using you ideas to build one. Best luck and bravo!!
  11. Such amazing work!! I like the WWII-fighter look, nutty. Are you planning to paint something on the driver-side?
  12. I just saw the video, truly sorry about the car. Im glad that your well, and spirited to re-mend her. Best luck!
  13. A friend helping me weld the 240z is on the same team. I think the blue or green class, and drives a black 300zxTT.
