  1. Decided to just scrap the entire back peice. It was layers of filler and metal mixed together. Started remaking the patch panel on the back, ran out of time yesterday but got the basic shape. Still needs to be bent some more in the lower right hand corner and the exhaust opening still needs to be cut.

  3. @Jboogsthethug thanks, Im still new to it but its definetly fun to do. I put the squares in as a grid because I didnt make a buck (form) I decided to try using lines to figure out what radius went where, it also helped when making the driver side panel. It gave me a template to follow. Ill snap some pictures of the two panels side by side, they arent 100% but for a jabroni they're good enough. I've been contemplating whether or not I should make the other patch panel I need, the one above the wheel. If I do decide to make it instead of purchasing one Ill probably make buck
  4. @EF Ian awesome thanks, I can across the site but wasnt sure on quality.
  5. thanks, going to grab some measurements from a local Z today and see where I sit.
  6. I ran into something similar on my Z, I was pretty bummed about it too but I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. In my opinion if your looking at taking it to a body shop thats going to add up quick especially because you dont know how far the previous repairs go. I would pull off the filler and paint myself and see if there is anything you can do to fix it yourself before taking it in. Even if you decide to take it in it will be cheaper if you remove the existing filler yourself.
  7. this looks great! good job on the blasting and painting. Where did you source your rear quarter panels from? Im having a hell of a time trying to find some and wanted to avoid making them.
  8. Looking to see if anyone can grab some dimensions for me. -need a dimension from the red line on the door to the yellow body line, from the looks of it when the panel was replaced on this car the body line was moved down. -need a dimension from the yellow body line to the bottom of the rocker panel green body line. -need a dimension from the read body line to the blue circle, want to see how far off the bumper bolts were placed. Another thing is when people are placing there body panels on the car and trying to get half decent panel gaps are they temporarily installing the weather stripping? or is there another way of doing this?
  9. With having a new addition to the family I've been strapped for time, I try to run to the shop at least once a week. I've been in the process of stripping all the body filler from the previous owners and repairing some e previous repairs. I managed to knock out both lower rear quarters, need to make some final tweaks but over all happy with how they came out.
  10. This has to be one of my favorite mods thats I've seen, nice excecution
  11. Stripped the door this weekend, found one of the reasons the car had so much filler on it. Made a patch panel for the door skin, Ill just need to find some time to cut and reweld everything together.
  12. looking to purchase both rear patch panels. Looking from the patch panel to be from just above the second body line down to the bottom, and from the tail light section to the door.
  13. the perks of living with the other snow mexicans, those connectors don't ship to my location. Whats the cost on them on amazon?
  14. @Whitley_280z_2+2 great build thread, what weather pack connectors were you planning on using? Im in the process of redoing the electrical in the Z and was planning on using Deutsch connectors. They're a bit pricey though.
  15. found some time to plug away, got almost all the hole in the firewall plugged and welded up, removed the dash and all of the wiring that went along with it, going to clean it up abit. Got the driver side panels roughed out. Was happy with how they worked out and they're symmetrical enough for me. Upcoming plans will be sourcing a brake booster, getting all the hardlines run, and fabricating some brake and air line brackets.
