    Road and Race 350Z

    My latest video is a collection of repairs and mods I've done the the Z. 1. I modify the boot to make it bigger and safer 2. Repair a leaky door seal 3. Repaint the scratched door handle with plastidip 4. Hack the Bose stereo 5. Give the interior a good clean 6. Fit brighter headlights 7. Do the "penny trick" on the boot lid

    Gear knob was looking a bit tatty, so cleaned it, sanded it then re-painted it. Doesn't look too bad now.

    Decided to modify my 350Z boot. Much bigger now and things don't fly at your head on heavy breaking!
  5. My video review of the 370Z. I compare it to the 350Z and highlight the changes and improvements.
  6. My video guide on how to change the spark plugs as well as engine oil & filter, gearbox oil, differential fluid and coolant.

    No idea if they are low mounts. To be fair I don't see how they could be lower though without cutting into the car.

    Thanks mate. Glad to hear you're enjoying it. Maybe I should clarify on the seat. I configured it so the rear is one notch (there are 3) higher than the front. So I sit at an angle which I prefer. That was what I meant by "higher". Probably not the best description. Anyway overall you sit lower in the car as the seat is thinner than stock and mounts lower. You can also move the seat further back more to give more leg room, again as it's thinner. I'm 6 foot and can't fully depress the pedals with the seat all the way back. If you are at TRAX on Sunday you can have a go!

    This week it's a complete service overhaul. I change the engine oil, gearbox oil, differential fluid, coolant, spark plugs and clean the MAF & throttle body. Full video on YouTube as usual.

    How to fit a racing bucket seat

    My video shows you how I bought and fitted a OMP ARS-R racing seat into my 350Z. I got mine from GSM Performance in Nottingham. Nice, friendly place and you can actually go there and try out the seats before you buy one. I manged to get a discount code which should get you 5% off: RAR-GSM

    On this week's video I buy and fit a OMP ARS-R racing seat to the Z. I visited GSM Performance in Nottingham and had a good time trying out all their seats. I've managed to get a discount code for GSM which should get you 5% off most stuff: RAR-GSM. It's apparently a bit tricky to fnd a racing seat that fits a 350Z. This OMP one just fits but does still rub slightly against the door car.

    Road and Race 350Z

    When I got the car it had 4 different types of tyres on it. On the track it was a bit of a handful and you never really knew what the car was going to do! In my latest video Gary and I test the car before and after fitting decent tyres. We used Kumho's PS91 Ultra Performance road tyres - the best road tyres they sell. How well do they hold up on the track?

    In this video I show you how I swapped out the potentially problematic clutch slave cylinder and also fixed a whole bunch of small, but annoying issues.
