I've meet a lot of car guys who are also watch guys, so I thought id share a watch modification I made. It was a Seiko SNK809 Black Seik 5 (first image) Automatic watch I replaced the crystal with a Domed AR coated sapphire crystal and replaced the factory dial with a dial from a seiko SKX009 and placed the watch on a brown leather strap. Second photo is the completed result. Third photo is the completed watch on a NATO strap next to another Modified watch I made. last photo is the completed watch(left) next to a stock SKX009(right) I got inspiration from https://medium.com/@pixelthing/my-seiko-snk-po-mo-1d5b71f1c6d5
Recently started my 280z Project with Boba my beautiful 76' 280z 2+2. I bought her from a guy that was planning on fully restoring her but never got around to finishing it. When i got her the guy had already pulled the engine and disassembled almost all the parts including the exhaust. He also had pulled out Boba's seats because they were in pretty bad condition but the back seats are fine. Due to his not getting around to her, it sat in his drive way for a couple of years. It has a few minor rust spots but nothing major from what i can tell. Most of the rust spots being in the engine bay, around the mount. It also a small crack on the tail light, passenger side mirror is missing, the clip for the rear seats to pull them done seems to be broken and won't pull done. The carpet is also a complete disaster so i plan to pull it and see if there is any rust underneath then replace it with aftermarket seats that are on the way. I plan on during making some modifications to the engine and exhaust to put some more power into it. Some plans that I have for it are too: Install some new MSA Header New Aluminzed Performance Exhaust Cold air induction system New Four Piston brake calipers Performance kit that comes with new retainers and springs, rockers arms, lash pads Maybe New pistons depending on what kind of shape they are in Those are the major changes I plan on then after that probably fix up the suspension with new struts and springs and a Roll Bar for the back. All the parts i listed i found on the Zstore online. Its going to be a long on going project but it will be worth it in the end. I'll continue to post pictures as it goes along, i should finish pulling the carpet tomorrow and the seats should be coming in the next few days.
