Thanks guys! :) The vids will be on the move again pretty soon.

 

Pretty funny that no-one noticed that it says "88" on top of the

pistons, and 875 on the side of the box. This is 'cause of the guy

who took the pics - he messed up the pictures of the 87.5 mm

RB26-pistons, but the 88 mm ones for another car came out fine.

 

Just thought I'd point this out... =)

good work man, your the only person ive seen thats crazy enough to go through with as rusty a z as i have. We share the same rust spots in each and every place but i have some more! =) its great to see that just because its hard, and a pain to do, love of these cars prevails. good luck on your project and if you need ne tips or advice ask me because my rust repair adventures are 70% complete. my floors were nonexistent, rails in engine bay= nonexistant, doglegs=gone, wheel wells=gone, rear subframe=rusted through, panels under doors= gone, rear area=rusted through. lol see where this is headed? anyways man great work and keep it up!

dj paul: Thanks, fellow nutter ;)

 

I browsed through your pics and yeah, you did have some hardcore rust to

deal with. It's starting to look alright though? It's 2 am over here, so I just

swooped through the pics - did you use your original frame rails?

 

That rod looks beefy, how heavy is it?

Ummm... I don't know. I'll try acquiring a figure in the morning.

 

Now it's sleepy time! Yay!

nooo way man, my neighbor fabbed me up some rails outta some 16 gauge steel and made the suspension mounting brackets out of 14 gauge, i will show you the design of them, they are waaay stronger than stock. ill put some more pictures up of the newer stuff, i havent updated in a few weeks, a lot more is done now. i also put baddogparts' sway bar strengthening plate on there. this is all tied together into the floor rails with not only replacement pans and rails, but baddogparts' rails as well. right now, im waiting for my neighbor to fab up the other suspension mounting point so im working on putting in my 240sx rear subframe (my original one was shot anyways) ill keep you updated man. stay in touch =)

looks good man, im just replacing the entire rear quarters with fiberglass panels. is using lead ok anymore? i thought you were supposed to use something else these days.

Lead is the SHlT I tell you! :D

 

Supposed to use something else? Why - because of fun signs like these?

No way man, tons and tons of lead were left in the natural world through fishing and hunting. There should be nothing wrong with automotive use since all the lead stays on the car. It does quickly bring down the power/weight ratio though :D
