    wtb : set of coil overs for 240z

    I have a barely used, as in 4k or less used by the former Vildini Motorsports silver shop car. Vildini Motorsports did the work on these and ran them on their SR20det swapped shop car for less than 4k miles then decided to go the S13 suspension and brake route. I purchased these along with their Arizona Z Car, Wilwood brake kit, (which I am selling also) at that time then had them powder coated gloss black and put into my storage where they have been ever since. I also soaked these in Evaporust recently to remove any surface rust /patina forming over the years. This is all in great, barely used condition. Kit includes Ground Control coil over conversion kit with Hyperco coils in 225# and 250#, Tokiko Illumina 5 way adjustable shocks. Everything you see in the pics.Contact PM if interested.

  4. Any updates with the custom fuel cell and general work on this?

    Carbon Fiber Center Console

    Interested with current results as well....
  6. I have not contacted either of the two companies mentioned as to inquire on prices but they are listed on each respective site, http://love20bee.com/lip-add-on, https://shop.wheelflip.com/collections/outer-lips-custom-bore ...... I certainly did not intend to derail this application specific thread if I have, but merely bring to light that there are now options of having 2/3 piece wheels re-barreled as to fit in the stock confinements with the wider tires and some of the wheel options out there. I certainly respect keeping the body to stock dimensions and adding width within those parameters, however in my own individual case I also love a tasteful widebody Z that offers different aesthetics and more of a contact patch.
  7. Alright one last link to member Gixxersquid incredible creation with re-barreled Wats on it. http://www.zcarblog.com/page/2
  8. Careful, it's a slippery slope, one I fell down a looooong time ago!!
  9. I chose to go with some Forged Volk Te37V in (17"x 9"-10 & 17 x 10" -20) and (245/40/17" & 275/40/17" BF Goodrich Sport Comp 2). Some other 17"- 5 lug wheels I had also been considering for my build consisted of SSR - Professor SP1R, Boze Forged - Shifter or Velocity, CCW - Classic mesh, Barramundi Design Forged - Payara, Bester or Jellynose. I also considered finding some 17" Work VS-XX or VS-KF and having them re-barreled to fit my needs as well as some Watanabe RS8's. As my build has been progressing and power levels rose, I bought new rear quarter panels from Ztrix.com (YZ option) that accommodate a 12" rear wheel and wider than my already applied (Subtle Z option). As much as I love my new Volk TE37 V's with the 275's I may be looking at changing the wheel selection to accommodate a rear 11- 12" and 315's to fill out the new intended flares. I just want to get as much traction to the ground as I can. A few photos I have found along the way showing the wheel styles.
  10. If you want to start another thread I could contribute several wheel options from my own research into available wheels.
  11. Watanabe now offers a two piece 17" wheel (RS8) in both 4 and 5 lug options, but in different offsets. There are a few companies, (http://love20bee.com/), (http://wheelflip.com/) that are re- barreling these to fit whatever your needs are. Tire options and a classic banana spoke style are now an option.....

    CXRacing vs Tech2motorsports engine mounts

    I only have these more recent pics of the kit as I touched up the paint when I was repainting my gas tank. I sold off the R154 trans and accompanying parts to it from the kit as I am now using a new CD009 6 spd. Hope that helps some. Correction: I still have the R154 trans mount from the kit as the trans was sold to someone with a 240sx who did not need it.

    Broken 4340 Stub Axle threads

    So was it deemed that there were complications with or a bad batch of stub axles that went out? Was Joe currently in the process of making new ones?

    JDM CALIFORNIA MOTORS anyone?

    I bought a 2JZ from JDM Engine Pro in La Habra and it was in great shape. Upon request they removed the unwanted automatic trans and had the engine ready for me to help load into my truck. I think it was Chris that I dealt with there.

    Z car garage brakes

    I bought the standard AZC Wilwood kit from the silver Vildini shop car 240Z. They only have less than 4k miles on them. I also bought member Woza custom rear parking brake brackets and also have member Tim O version. Unfortunately my car is in pieces waiting for one day to be finished. I have heard nothing but positive comments on the azc kit though.

    Fender flares

    I have a set of unused rear smooth style ZG flares that I bought from (MSA) Motor Sport Auto and never ended up using them or plan on using them as I went a completely different route altogether. These are ultimately intended for bonding onto the stock rear quarter panels, but I imagine could be adhered instead for a type of temporary hold. The pictures included showing them taped on my car are actually resting on an existing wide body rear quarter panel from Ztrix.com, ( "Subtle Z" ) which are 1.5" width over stock.

    Ceramic Coating

    You may want to reach out to Austin of Hoke Performance as if I recall had coated many parts of his L28et before he had the damage occur with that engine and finally went VQ instead. Not implying that the coating had anything to do with it, but as I recall that was how that all unfolded in sequence.
