  1. Realised I didn't put my name down for this but did accept the facebook event, according to the fb event theres 92 going ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜ฎ
  2. Yeah cracking day thanks @andy james survived the track and the drive back with no aircon ๐Ÿ˜…
  3. Tickets received just getting my head around track requirements .. were staying over in Bristol Friday so will be heading across in morning
  4. Thanks Alex but mines an HR and yes Nissan wanted ยฃ289 !! for a piece of pressed steel have bought a second hand one for 20 it was listed for VQ37HR but im pretty sure it will fit the 350 HR
  5. upon inspection there is a crack in my sump pan that has been repaired with gasket sealant, this has started to leak very slower so I will look to repair and probably replace later in year, inside sump no signs of anything blocking the pick up, there was already a mishimoto magnetic plug that was clean, although inside sump was a few metallic bits which seemed to be stuck to pan away from drain plug so hopefully its old stuff ๐Ÿคž Oil was ready for changing and oil filter is a blue point one which I have never heard of or can find on google
  6. hi yes, warm oil pressure used to peak at 90, suddenly it started peaking at 120 max when pulling and dropping back to 70-80 when cruising, this just seemed quite a bit higher then what it was doing, however coming back the pressure did seem to return to previous readings 90 max on pulls, just read about checking sump for any possible reasons for blockages thanks for other tips๐Ÿ‘
  7. Hi off to Combe JDM in July and have a few jobs to do before to feel happy before taking on track, Engine oil change and filter, this was done by previous owner last August and less then 3k ago and oil looks like new, although high pressure readings has gotten me a bit nervy so will change, am going to drop oil pan and just have a check etc, also will fit a magnetic drain plug, was looking at Greddy one but I noticed that the TS one says its single use are they all single use ? Then gearbox oil, am using the Nissan oil + molyslip, did Diff oil when I had the subframe off so thats good Lastly brake fluid followed by 4 wheel alignment
  8. initially said this was too far to get to being a tight northerner .. to find out my son wants a trip to Caffeine and machine on Saturday just 30 mins away but wrong day ๐Ÿคฃ hopefully will get to meet some of your Zs at Castle Combe in July ๐Ÿ‘, weather looks spot on so looking forward to seeing the pics afterwards

  10. 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
  11. 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 ?
  12. i'm hoping to go, busted collar bone โ˜น๏ธ has slowed progress but subframes back on coilovers fitted ๐Ÿ™‚ just side sills to paint
  13. 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 ยฃ90 plus delivery (ยฃ8 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.
  14. Wow just seen your car ๐Ÿ‘.. 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 ?
  15. Well after visiting Japfest came back with so many ideas and desires, just got to work out if bank balance can cope ๐Ÿ’ฐ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 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 ๐Ÿคฃ Anybody know companies in UK selling Polyurethane kits ?
  16. Anyone heading to Modified Live (Cadwell Park) โ€“ 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
  17. 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
  18. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ so couldn't get an accurate measurement, i was thinking about fitting the brace then drilling holes and using bolts to secure
  19. 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 ?
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ at least I think they are (they measure 12 inch on rear) .. hey ho least its all ready for a drop ๐Ÿ™‚
