  1. Coilovers are back in! The car is now finished, at least for a while... Thanks for joining.
  2. I had to swap all the T3 parts back to original, otherwise not legal. Next weekend I will install all T3 parts again. The thing is, because of its good condition, I got the "Veteran" registration, which means the next vehicle test will be in 6 years. Unfortunately I have a kilometer limit of 3000 km per year with the classic car registration, but a second speedometer solves the problem.
  3. Hello! Finally I had some time to finish the diff swap. As usual, the series one chassis forced me to adjust the RT mount, but at the end it worked out fine. The bumpstop is now located 2cm more to the right side, so the ebrake clears the upper bolt. The final ratio is now perfect for my taste and I can enjoy the highway and the curvy roads as welll. The old 3.3 ratio was way too long combined with the s14 5-speed. Maybe its useful for other people who had the same problem with the Rt mount on a series one. Here are some pics:
  4. Hello people Update time! I was able to organize some professional help to get my Z to the next level with a restauration and shaving of the engine bay. Further I wanted to remove the chrome stripes on each side for a cleaner look. Which was alot work, because filling up all these small holes without stressing the metall too much was not an easy task. The old paint overall was really bad and some rust underneath the paint was also found.
  5. Hi Im looking for a Subaru Impreza WRX STI 3.9 diff (2004/2005). Thank you for your message in advance!
  6. better thick than thin, it doesn't need to be perfect. You also can grind down the worst parts. Built not bought! Thats the way to go.
  7. This is my favourite build thread. Keep the pics coming. Cheers

  10. Hi Guys I'd like to share some updates with you: FS5W71C 240SX S14 5 Speed Swap: New Bellhousing needed, because I've got a early series 4 speed. Found here in the forum. Prepare for blasting: Fresh powdercoat: Ready for swap the housing, new seals installed. Next step, transmission mount:
  11. Thanks guys! Next update is coming soon! I spend alot time with my sandblasting cabin and powder gun. I swear, this is the best thing I ever bought for my men cave. Finally I can dismantle some parts, clean, blast and powder them on the same day, so I can really make some progress in just a few hours. If you don't have the possibility to clean and powder your parts in-house, you have to bring the parts to a shop and you have to wait a few days until they finished their work. It slows you down... Also next thing I'm planning to do is to swap the
  12. After 16 weeks, the new wheels finally arrived: Work Equip03 8.5 -3 and 9.0 -8 with 205 and 225 tyres. After struggling to get streched tyres on, the Z finally stood on the new suspension.
  13. After all these upgrades, I really enyojed the car and drove it all the time, everyday. What a blast! But I couldn't stop and bought more Upgrades... Then I thought, I need new seats: After few weeks I bought a sand/glas blasting cabin incl. a powdergun... So the first things had be powdered: Things getting serious, so I bought something that I always wanted: Complete coilov
  14. Hi Z-Lovers! I like to share the story from my 240Z, which I bought 4 years ago in Bend, Oregon. This forum with the huge knowledge helped me several times, so thank you all and I hope somebody will find usefull informations here in this topic. A friend do own a Rebello 3.1 240z, this is why I felt in love with the Datsuns. In Europe, nobody drives a 240z, so it's really a rare car for us. One year ago I moved from Lucerne to Basel, Switzerland and I'm 30 years old. I hope you will enjoy this topic. First of all her
  15. Hi, sorry for the late answer. Yes, I'am from Switzerland. It's hard to find any parts in Switzerland, so I thought, it would be possible to buy one here in this forum. I know, I'll have to do some machine work, but this is not really a big challenge for me and my friends. I'll contact you guys by PM. Thanks for your help. Best Regards
  16. Hi I'm looking for a 5 speed bellhousing to finish my FS5W71C swap. My car is an early Datsun 240z series one, with the type A transmission, so I can't use this Bellhousing. Many thanks for your help! Regards Reinhard
