Z Hopeful (2/7)



  1. well managed to get sills painted and made it to this, great selection of cars plenty of Zs .. nice it get the car back on the road, as for show I really enjoyed it and plenty going on
  2. just getting round to refitting kidney braces and found one of the bolt holes needs drilling and re-tapping, looks like previous owner probably had to repair but the bolts that came out (not std bolts) and new ones I bought (std ones from torqen) are not tightening up, so thinking of drilling and tapping to M12 Anyone had to repair these before ?
  3. i'm hoping to go, busted collar bone ☹️ has slowed progress but subframes back on coilovers fitted 🙂 just side sills to paint
  4. Hi I have been asked by a few people recently for the W brace I got made start of year to overcome the problem I had with aftermarket W braces catching on m y exhaust So I am getting another 10 made up, unfortunately as with everything price to get made has gone up, so price for one is £90 plus delivery (£8 hermes), these are unpainted so you will need to paint yourself If interested let me know See link below for original post and feedback on fitment etc.
  5. Wow just seen your car 👍.. so inspired, where did you get your seats retrimmed and how much was it ballpark ? and your tablet install looks great did you do a guide at all ?
  6. Well after visiting Japfest came back with so many ideas and desires, just got to work out if bank balance can cope 💰 😬 Anyway looking online it seems most of kits available in UK are fibreglass, whereas would ideally want Polyurethane kits like this KBD Body Kits N3-R 1 Pc Polyurethane Front Bumper For Nissan 350Z 2003-2008 652789891401 | eBay as I think they are more durable, my son has GRP front bumper on his lowered IS200 and its now looking very drift spec if you know what I mean after various bumps on pot holes speed bumps etc 🤣 Anybody know companies in UK selling Polyurethane kits ?
  7. Anyone heading to Modified Live (Cadwell Park) – Awesome Modified Car Event .. hoping collar bone fixes in time for me to put Z back together and head over to here, looks a good day
  8. that's neat i love these little diy jobs, any links to the parts i have aftermarket switchbacks fitted but one has packed in so may look at this option
  9. hi mate great glad it fits ok for you, would be great to see a picture with your exhaust clearance, yes had thought about having holes pre-drilled for the plastic covers but mine were rotten and held on with tie-wraps 😮 so couldn't get an accurate measurement, i was thinking about fitting the brace then drilling holes and using bolts to secure
  10. hi broke my collar bone at weekend so cant drive to japfest, cant get a refund but organiser says i can sell it on if anyone interested ?
  11. gutted broke my collar bone at weekend so cant drive for 4-6 weeks so wont be bringing car, i cant get a refund but can resell my ticket if anyone interested, will post also in main forum
  12. I know sounds stupid but when I bought car it stated as lowered, but now i've took rear springs off and measured them they're 12 inch long and they have no aftermarket brands etc. Reason I ask is that I wanted car a bit lower but I thought they were already on lowered springs so was thinking I needed coilovers to lower further but if its still standard then could look at lowering springs
  13. Quick update, have cleaned and wire brushed underneath of car with rustbuster kit, seemed to take a while for the rust treatment to take effect probably due to colder temps but it got there in end, and painted with the 2 part epoxy paint looking a lot better and should help prolong the cars life .. I hope Also took opportunity to replace subframe and diff bushes posted another post for this, just be nice for someone to check my work before putting it back together Also replaced adj camber arms and fitted lockout bolts, and adj control arms, and then fitted the ac-delco larger adjustment toe bolts, with front adj arms also to fit so thinking I can now align car properly to then realise cars still on stock springs despite being told its lowered oh 😬 at least I think they are (they measure 12 inch on rear) .. hey ho least its all ready for a drop 🙂
