Month 18: June 2019
Completed This Month:
Fit forum window sticker
Sell Original DE Headlights
Refurb a pair of NIssan fan motors
Cleaned underside of bonnet!
Total profit - £140
Not much progress this month, for various reasons really! The main reason is that I'm actually thinking of selling the 350Z now - for some reason I've recently really had a hankering for a Westfield or something along those lines. It's been listed on Facebay, but I've yet to commit to listing it on here or ebay/PH.
I love the 350z, but I don't think there is much more I'd do to the car but I'm sure a new owner could take her to the next level!
Back on track - yes, I've fitted a 350Z-uk forum window sticker, and I sold my old DE headlights as after fitting the HR equivalents I don't think I'd ever return it back. So this put some well needed finances back in the bank
I've also picked up some dead 350Z radiator fan motors. I acquired these to refurb and familiarise myself with the process, and was planning on keeping these as spares. However, with the Mishimotos to fit (Which I'll do after "Simply Jap" show in July) I'll probably just sell them on to someone who can use them. The refurb process wasn't too hard, and I dressed the brushes, cleaned the commutators and motor internals and reassembled. Now not only do both motors work, they work on both speeds. I also hooked up a bench test-rig using some server PSUs I had lying around to test them without needing to fit to a car.
Finally, after attending JDMCombe, I realised how filthy the underside of my bonnet was. So a bit of elbow grease and it's cleaned up nicely. A touch of paint on the bonnet catch and it's done.
