Decided to fully refurb the 5Zigen wheels.

i bought them a few years ago in exceptional condition but after scuffing the two nearside ones on the Euro tunnel and a few seasons of shows they were looking tired.

Very impressed with finish as I know Smoked Chrome is very difficult to produce.

Silver Wheels in Ferndown Dorset. £312 all up including tyres off and on which I think is good value.

Seats being delivered next week apparently. 

Buster popping over to help me fit the ARBs tomorrow afternoon.

Fitted the white line anti roll bars and drop links this afternoon with Buster.

The front one was a right pain as the Supercharger intake pipe and the remote oil filter braided hoses made removal difficult.

Thinking the sarnie,Coke, donuts,coffee,crisps made up for it!

Thanks mate.

Gearbox mount and putting everything back together is tomorrow's job before a Hunter alignment next weekend.

Worked on the suspension over the weekend. New rear shock replaced the leaking unit. Wondered why the car was shimmying/porpoising under hard exeleration!

Nearside front upright lower ball joint swapped out and replaced. Thanks  to Bob the Sledge for help with removal and Chris the press with refitting! Lol

The Cobra seats were always going to be a challenge as I'd only seen these Chairs fitted in the US on left hand drive cars.I was told initially by GSM that they were too wide at the shoulders to fit into a 350z but after a meeting with the car,Gareth and a tape measure we decided that they could just fit.

Passenger seat fully installed, drivers seat in but sits too high at the moment due to the hump in the floor pan but width is not a problem. Buster and me have a cunning plan to modify the seat base.

Work in progress pics!

Cheers mate. Looked on google at a stripped out Z and think I may be cutting the hump out of the floor pan!!

Cool - can I come and watch that - the destruction of a perfectly good car just for new seats :thumbs:  :lol:

 

If you need the hole welded up bring her over :)

 

I can do it or we can let Buster have a go - he loves to weld stuff :teeth:

Thanks Chris. Seen Busters welding. All the weight I’d save with the new seats he’d weld back on! Lol

Alternatively, you could always let Bob cut a hole in the roof and add a 'bubble', in GT40 style ;):lol:
