Went out for a drive to Diddley Squat Farm this morning with a few Z owners, including a rather famous guest.

 

Literally the nicest chap ever, took the time to go round each and every car and chat to the owner.

Went out first thing this morning around town, to make use of the extra hour. Forgot how good cars looks on cobblestone streets.            

Cleaned the engine bay the other day and the blower was handy for drying out the little hard to reach places     Fitted my polished plenum that I've had for almost a year, thought if it's ev

Stuck the battery on charge last night ready for the morning, out the door at 5:40am for a nice long drive - #bliss

I'm sure you guys made his day as much as his appearance made yours.

Early morning trip over to the venue for this Sunday's Club meet, actually a nice spot too. Haven't been here for years so wanted to check the location and access.

 

See details below.......

The coilovers I bought didn't come with rear adjuster extenders, came across a simple yet effective idea - £6 damper adjuster solution with no holes in the interior. Do your adjustment, pop the trim back on and you're good.

 

Drill in one hand, vacuum attachment in the other made it interesting.

 

Gone from 12/40 clicks, up to 22/40

Truly wonderful times linking up with fellow Z owners catching up and driving out. Coupled with warning lights on two occasions for a brake light switch fault and airbag connector, mixed with at show repairs for clutch fluid level and sun strip fitting @Phil T ☺️

The other morning I messaged Chris over at @Tarmac@TarmacSportz to see if they had any stock for their Mines style front splitter, goes they had two on the shelf - so made arrangements to pop up to collect that day. Wanted one for a while and finally pulled the trigger.

 

Old splitter and carbon bumper insert off, quick clean up ready for the new item. Fitment was great however being a fussy bugger, i spent some time contouring the splitter where it bulked. Thought I'd rather do this as I didn't want to result to applying a silicon sealant, which can leave the splitter under unnecessary tension as your asking the material to pull/push into place.

Unibond double sided tape for the centre and the side line up with the factory bumper lower bolts in front of the wheels. I also ran a torx self taper at the ends near the wheel wells for good measure. 

 

Absolutely chuffed with it and may look to PPF it as its in a high traffic area.

Attempted to the PPF the front splitter in sections and failed terribly, even made a template. Previously did my carbon bumper insert however this time she wasn't having none of it. Gave up on the idea and stuck a layer of sealant on to make myself feel better.

To be fair there are alot of intricate curves on that splitter.

It'd be great if there was a plastidip type spray that had a really glossy transparent finish to it.

Just mask up and spray on a protective clear top coat that could be relatively easily peeled off and replaced as it aged and chipped.
