Roadster that needs some tlc

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

So I have brought a 2005 Z roadster in orange it is a cat N but is a good base. Need the roof replaced and the drivers seat repaired but it has  all most complete service history to 48000, With only 58000 on the clock it drives well and of course sounds great with a scorpion back dox. So I will keep you posted on the jobs as i get round to doing them. I'm shore there will be some questions for the assembled.

Got my eye on a few. Was going to get the Nismo 370 which I had before but going to leave it. Maybe Ill keep it for a few years and see what happens with any announcements as that always affects prices of previous. 

 

Any mods planned?

l'm saying no I will keep it stock but there are so fun bolt on goodies. it already has a after market exhaust fitted so maybe one or two little mods won't hurt. ;)

The one im going to check tomorrow has a stock exhaust which isnt bad. As its convertible it gets loud in the cabin right? Even with the roof up?

I some times consider a convertible but worry about the noise in the cabin when the roof is up, is it as bad as they say? If you change the roof can you insulate a little or there isn’t really any room to do so?

Mine is alot quieter now that I have sorted the ripped hood. I've not driven a hard top to compare it to but then again how many of the hard top owners have driven a soft top. I would say it is no worse than some of the hard top sports cars I've had.

are you able to fix the roof if it stops working mechanically?

Don't know not tried yet but the manual gives all the details from fault finding to repair so I will try if I have to.

I have a " moody " roof on mine, problem with the reat latch  which locates into the tonneau so have taken latch of and all good, its still even 99.9% waterproof.
