  1. Havent got to wiring the car yet but it looks helpful, thanks! I'm using Kwik wire instead of painless but I hope it will be similar.
  2. I recently bought a full exhaust kit (sport header, exhaust kit and JDM muffler) from Sean and I would like to recommend his parts and customer service. Sean answered all of my questions, shipped fast, and helped me out with anything else I needed. Now just looking forward to getting them installed. Here are a couple photos of the header and muffler Keep it up Sean!
  3. A 240z appears in one of the first seasons of That 70's Show. There is an episode in which Eric, Donna, Jackie and Kelso go to a drive-inn cinema to watch a horror movie ("The Omen") in Eric's car. In the background there is a pristine silver 240z. I jumped out of my seat when I caught a glimpse of the right headlight! Started pointing it out to the rest of the family!
  4. I've heard of these guys based in the UK buy haven't bought anything from them: http://www.frpautomotive.com/frp_240z_shells_clubs.html
  5. I second Brendan.... My doors are falling apart Looks great though!
  6. Nice rims! Thanks for the photo, it's a little hard to tell what they look like from this angle and quality. Isnt 225 on 7" too large?
  7. Had the same shock when I started taking my car apart. First thought the guy that sold it to me lied when he said it has a straight body!
  8. That's a really tight fit.... Are you using spacers? Makes me rethink my wheel/tire sizes
  9. Third time I'm writing, multiquote function doesnt work and keeps deleting everything I write I would have gone with 8" et 0 but the rims I like aren't offered in that size. I also like the look of SLIGHTLY stretched tires on the rims (Nothing radical). I have even seen motorcycle tires stretched on car rims!!!! I'm not quite sure yet how to dial in camber without installing camber plates. I've seen some mounts which have some adjustments without cutting into the car, still looking into them. I've seen a few cars here on hybridz running 15x9, but they all seemed to have the wheels slightly sticking out. That's what I'm trying to avoid Thanks for the photos, awesome rims! That is the kind of look I'm going for. I would run 15x7 but I like the look of a slightly deeper dish (even if it is just 0.5 inches). This is what I was thinking to run, I have not seen anyone running these on a Z and think they would look awesome. Kind of like a hotrod version
  10. As you have probably guessed by now, this is another wheel fitment question. Since my Z is completely torn apart, it is really difficult to take measurements. I am going to run TTT coilovers with TTT front and rear brake kit. I don't want to roll my fenders or add flares or any other modifications to the sheet metal. I'm not going to run any crazy negative camber as I've seen on some cars lately (I don't even want to use camber plates). I've seen some cool looking 8x15 -12et wheels which I plan to run on 205/50. It's the -12 that I'm worried about, i've read that it gets really tight against the fenders, especially on the front. I just want to make sure everything is ok before paying. It would suck buying rims, having them shipped all the way here only to have them shipped back (on my expense ) Any help would be great!
  11. Looks great! Are you also going to make this part in fiberglass? Would that make a difference in price? My console is cracked and I prefer something more classic to CF
  12. I cant believe it! This is the car thats on my wallpaper from a rear 3/4 view. I immediately recognized it from the flares, mirrors and color
  13. I've read some threads about manifolds not fitting properly, that is what determined me to buy this manifold (and the absurdly high transport/import taxes that have to be paid on any item brought in from the US)
  14. My car is far from road worthy, looking forward to finally installing all the parts and making it work. Until then, lots of playing around and test fitting the manifold and carbs
  15. I have searched the internet far & wide to no avail trying to find photos/reviews of the Mangoletsi manifold before buying. Therefore, I hope this post will give the next person looking to switch to triple webers more complete information. The manifold is made by Mangoletsi in the UK. It is built to fit DCOE 40 but they also produce an option for DCOE 45. It is extremely well built, every part looks and feels to be high quality. It comes with both the standard rod linkage as well as a cable linkage (can be seen in one of the photos). Included in the kit is a port matching template to make the block openings fit the manifold perfectly. I have not had the chance to install the manifold as the car is undergoing a complete restoration, but so far completely recommend it. Enough talking, time for some photos! Although it did take a while to have the manifold built, it was worth it.
