    nearly there with the shifter.The issue when selecting 1/3/5 the linkage hits this point slightly.Just needed trimming on the underside, fortunately its only for housing the spring.I had to shave a lot more off the bottom but forgot to take pictures, I will get some tomorrow.When in neutral or 2,4,6 the linkage is totally clear from the bottom but I will show that tomorrow.

    Fuel pump is back in. No metal on metal. Wires soldered, heat shrinked and checked for impedance

    Just waiting for some S15 flywheel bolts to arrive before trying out different clutch bearing sleeves for correct air gap with my twin carbon ORC S15 clutch and flywheel but I really don't understand why people would bother machining the gearbox housing when the protuner adapter plate is there?Also looking at gearbox mounting (yet to fit it up to the car, but have created some extra space with calibrated taps from 7lb hammer) it seems the holes on the oem (auto trans) mount align with the 350z gearbox bolt holes. a couple of hockey pucks and two longer bolts should work IMO.Just remove the counter weight on the 350z box.It will have worse NVH due to less side to side rotation but a hell of a lot cheaper and easier than some of the kits out there. Just had a play with the oem shifter bracket and for me on a budget... I might just save the £250ish for a billet shifter and put the money elsewhere.So after measuring how much metal rod is between the two U joints (10.5cm) and doing what other people do by cutting out the rod and welding the two U joints together I feel this shouldn't need too much cutting of the trans tunnel hole for the gear stick to come up to a normal'ish location for the gear knob.So with two holes drilled inline with the original ones, I then cut off the excess.still a bit interfering so more cutting.The U bracket under the shifter should now be in a good place for welding.Sadly one of the locating dowels got stuck and I need to remove it before the next stage at which I will use some sheet metal to create two legs back down to the oem bottom mounting holes to reduce any movement. Should have enough space to drill a small hole on the bottom Alu section for these to bolt to.
  4. Working and mine is off the road until Spring. Have fun.

    Today I thought I would pull the fuel pump out and see if my aeromotive 340 stealth pump (was supposed to go in the 350z.... but twin pump ftw in the future.) would fit. The pump is a lot smaller than the OEM one but lucky me, it came with a foam jacket so should fit. The old pump is hidden deep down inside the tank on a plastic bracket so not a fun job if you have fuel in your tank.(which I don't) Now the issue is the OEM pump has the rubber locating grommet at the bottom which wont fit on the aeromotive item. The fuel filter is also a lot longer so I have blown some air through the old one and gave it a wipe so I can reuse it. (seems most youtubers do this). I could getto the pump like this guy. But the thought of metal clips rubbing on the metal bracket is a No No to me, so I have emailed aeromotive to see if they make or sell a plastic/rubber locating thing for the bottom of their pump. If not I may need to buy a walbro as they do come with this part. Started researching fuel filters and lines so I will probably order an inline 100pa metal type filter with 8AN braided lines as this will also suit the 350z's future fuel plans and future proof both projects.

    lol not that bright but I do like British racing green, but in all honesty I like the oem colour, I think I bought a tin of it some where but if its totally out I will probably send it to a professional just like I need to do with the 350z lol,

    Busy time of year so only getting a half hour here and there to work on the car. Subframe bushes.... trying a different method of attack than burning which sucked on the 350z. Fortunately rust doesn't hold rubber well and this is a lot older and the oem bushes aren't great. Hopefully the metal sleeve can be punched out with a chisel after some initial cuts are made.

    It takes lots of hours to have nothing much to show. But only seconds to buy sh#t, I don't need right now.... The seam sealer and gun I was using wasn't fun, took a lot of effort to squeeze the stuff out, not a neat job but it wont be seen and its not a show car. Once it dries overnight I will stick another layer of primer over it.

    Flywheel lock turned up, but it's not quite right for this engine but mehhh, done the job I was going to fit the orc carbon clutch and flywheel but I figured I better wait for some new bolts? Got back to the wheel tub... takes ages to do one panel =(. Got as far as cutting the curve to a rough shape, still needs some fine tuning before I tack it up, Probably going to stitch weld the inner and outer plate above then seam sealer to stop any crap getting in between the two panels.

    Not nice to look at but fortunately I won't have to lol. Hopefully some seam sealer then paint then wax oil should protect it from rusting again.
