The Pheonix has been on axle stands since Trax.
Took her out for a quick road test prior to Hunter realignment.
First impression on start up. Deep throaty noise from transmission tunnel from the new gearbox mount which as I have aready a plated Kazz diff didn't seem unusual.
Once I got up through the gears a few times and negotiationed a few tight corners I realised that the diff was not clunking as much, the gearbox was so much smoother to operate along with no vibration under hard acceleration and on over run. Very pleased with the overall result and looking to drive her after realignment.
Please do not think these mods are for a daily driver as you will think you have swapped your beloved Z for a Defender!!
As mentioned before being a stubborn bugger I took a flyer buying the Cobra Misano seats. They have only been fitted in the US due to the right hand Z floor pan being much higher. So as I'm not the sort of chap to be shot from a cannon at the Circus the challenge was on!
The supplied seat base from OMP sat the seat far too high to avoid the bump in the floor allowing the seat rails to pass. This also meant that the seat sat too near the door so it would shut!
I ordered another base, mounted the seat nearer the transmission tunnel, ditched the runners whiched lowered it even further and after an AJ/Buster slot modification bolted the seat directly in the position suited for me.
The first Misano seats fitted to a uk Z!
Nice to see the newly refurbished wheels!
