  1. Did your 240z LS2 ever sell on BAT? 

    Just need to know before I fork over some cash to https://viva-cars.com/listing/1971-datsun-240z-6-speed/ for the same car. 

    Starting to suspect this is a scam because almost everything they've given me could've been scrapped from BAT. 

  2. It is a sad day today, the LS2 240Z Auction started today on bringatrailer.com. Pete
  3. The 240Z LS2 is finally 100% complete. I have decided to sell the car at bringatrailer.com Thanks for all the great support on this web site. Pete
  4. I received my 36 page appraisal from Classic Auto Appraiser. The report was very detailed and included condition and quality of the build. The value came in at $55,000 I will be raising my insurance with Haggerty to reflect the appraised value. The Appraiser Carlo Di Marco was very complete and knowledgeable on many different cars. If anyone is interested in seeing the complete appraisal I can send you an email. Pete
  5. Looks like I will be retiring early next year, The money will help with retirement. I will not sell if I do not get what I think the car is worth. Ironhead yes I definitely like doing the build more then driving the finished product. I have built many cars in the past. This is my forth 240Z build, the other three were stock builds and I sold all of them within 1 year of finishing the projects. Pete
  6. I did some research "Bring A Trailer" looks like the best place to sell a modified 240Z. I think I will pay the extra for the plus service to have professional pictures taken. Pete
  7. Looks like I may be selling the LS2 240Z. Any suggestions on the best place to sell the car. Not in any hurry want to get the best price I can. I have a lot of money and time in this build. I know I will never get back what I put into the car. Any experience sellers know what I could sell the car for. I am not looking to give the car away, if it takes a year to sell I can wait. Pete
  8. The car is now 100% complete, just finished using HP tuners to set electric fans to come on at specific temperatures. I have driven the 240Z 150 miles working out all the bugs. Sure is nice to drive LS2 240Z with AC, power steering and great brakes. The car drives fantastic. I will post some good pictures next week.
  9. Passenger side behind dash wiring. I was asked to post pictures.
  10. Finally got the brakes working like I want. I started off with a dual 7" brake booster with a 1" Wilwood master cylinder. With this setup the brakes would not stop as well as I wanted. I could not lock up the brakes. I first tried to change the master cylinder to a 7/8" with the 7" dual brake booster. The brakes had a little better stopping power but the pedal travel was to much. With both setups the best pressure I could get at the brake cylinders was 800 PSI. I then changed the master cylinder back to the 1" Wilwood and installed a 8" dual brake booster and the brakes perform fantastic. I can lock up the brake and have tons of stopping power. I now can get 1200 PSI at the brake calipers. My front setup is Silvermine motors stage 4 front brakes that have 4 piston calipers, and the rear is Silvermine motors stage 4.
  11. I am sure OEM fans will be strong enough. The fans that came with the champion kit are cheep Chinese made. I upgraded to a same size Spal fan and it pulls a lot more air.
