**** New thoughts from Feb 2023: I've come back to this post a few years later and with a few more interactions with Ohm and Apex and want to share my current perspective, which is that Apex has clearly improved their business management processes and shouldn't be judged too harshly based on my experience from 2020. I worked with Apex just as they were starting and I can imagine it's very challenging to get a fabrication business off the ground. Now that they have been around a few years I encourage you to consider more recent reviews and experiences rather than rely on mine alone. **** Abbreviated thoughts on my experience from 2020 (just as Apex launched): The Good: I have the front and rear suspension and they look great. The install was surprisingly easy--the suspension fit without the need for any modification or "persuasion." The Bad: Unavailable axle shafts, design/build mistakes, and frustrating customer service.
MODS: I apologize, should this be moved to Member Projects? Unoriginal, I know. Blasphemous, for sure; wouldn't have it any other way. I just wanted to pop in with the standard "Long time lurker" introduction. I've been trying to restore a Z for the past year and half, which has ballooned way over my head in what surprises a 40+ year old Datsun has in store for an unsuspecting hobbyist. It started off with buying a running, seemingly decent condition 280z which was to be a joint project for my girlfriend and me. We were going to do right by the car, keep it simple and just restore it. As we started to peel back the layers, that all started to change. Feb-April 2019 The car ran! Only had two owners, came with a lot of documentation and detailed sheet of when/what was done with all corroborating receipts. The guy literally tracked running hours on engine rebuild. It did start puffing a bit and he was forthcoming and stated it needed a head gasket. We start cracking away and the next set of photos you're all familiar with.... We got a quote on rebuilding the head and it came out to over $1000 since the components are hard to come by or custom. Looking at engine options through Datsun Spirit, who are local, just destroyed so much of the budget. Especially now that we had to battle the unseen cancer... We just started to tear everything apart. Sadness ensued. The best part of the car
