    Rear arch rust repair

    £1000+ is probally in the steep end, but if it gets the problem solved for good, i Would consider. i'm at about £500 so far. With metal and paint. Both sides. And i'm dooing most of the work myself.

    Rear arch rust repair

    True. it'S the worst part of having a +10year old motor. but better get it done first than last. mines ready for filler. There is a little High spot on the arch Line that needs to be corrected, Otherwise it's into paint tomorrow and back to the garage!

    Rear arch rust repair

    And all naked and ready for paint. had to get rough with the antenne to get it off. The aluminium had ceased pretty god. i'll have to get a new one. and pulled the Stock sideskirts also, and found some surface rust that i will fix before putting it back together. there's always something!
  7. Can't do 20£ Sorry. postage alone from Denmark cost med 25£. And thats also why they are in km/h.

    AAAAANNDD already fed up with the noise, so just ordered 2x 200 cell catalytic converters to go on. also the aircon system busted a hose this morning with a HUGE hiss and steam/gas cloud to go with it... lovely.

    Rear arch rust repair

    I was suprised how bad it was.... thought it was a bad Stonechip that just needed to be Ground down and maybe tinned and painted. But it was pretty rotten underneth.

    Rear arch rust repair

    Just took my freshly build car and decided that i wanted the rust in the rear arch gone. So put a grinder to it to see how bad it was.... and it was a bit worse than i had hoped for. It seems that the 2 layers of metal had opened between the spotwelds and held water. So it had corroded from the inside, and ran down between the metal, so bad that the outside was only the tip of the iceberg, and we ended up cutting a 10-12 inch piece out and had to make a new one from scratch. welded it in and tinned it up. Then paint is booked for monday, and getting both rear quarters painted as we also folded and rolled the arches. Originally hadn't planned on Rolling the arches as i have no clearence issues, but wanted to see if there was any rust between the spotwelds on the other side aswell. both sides had beginning rust issues. So i guess it's a problem on the 350z
  12. Didn't know they were difrent. it's for a 2004, so DE

    350z gtm Twinturbo kit

    Thanks. there is no brands involved, it's all noname. 3" stainless pipe, 4" stainless made into silencers, and some 3" backboxes i stumbeled on a few years ago and wanted to use for something since. And that keeps cost down. So total cost so far is about 500£ for the exhaust. And a few hours of torch time and fingureing @*!# out. I actually Think it will be about the same. my tuner told me he didn't Think there was any reason for a retune after dooing this. The H-pipe piece should do alot for a more uniform sound and not much more i Think, on a FI Z. And the silencers should remove alot of resonans and the drone, making it a deeper growl and not so loud as before. But I have no idea how it will pan out, but i hope i get it sounding more Z like and less two 3-cyl aygo's arguing without an exhaust like. i'll put the last pieces together tomorrow and fire it up.
