Engine and Gearbox in the car! »

At long last this 300zx gets its engine and gearbox fitted and its looking really good. After spending an afternoon checking that all the connections were done up four of us got a full day on the car to fit as much as we could. It was very interesting as we put the engine and [...]

Relocating power steering resovoir »

This is a nice fun job to do on the 300zx after you have deleted all the stuff that goes next to the brake servo. When you have done this there is enough room to put the resovoir on the bulkhead next to the wing. There is a bracket bolted on there with two 10mm [...]

The interior re trim »

Now the thing is, when we got this car the original seats had already been removed and replaced with some Rage bucket seats.  Apart from that the original 90s tweed looked dated and in places the vinyl had started to lift and it looked tatty.  We have a great set of new front Recaros to [...]

Fabricating double din centre console »

For the Audio we wanted to install a double din stereo and sat nav system. I wanted it to be a flush mount and to look like it has always been there. If you want to do this I have listed the instructions for doing it here.
1. Remove the metal retaining bracket from the centre [...]

Removed interior for waxoyling »

We took the interior out the car today toget it ready to waxoyl in the doors, the rear quarter panels and floor. When we have done this we are also undersealing the whole car as well. This should give it a real good protection from the elements for many years to come. While all the trim [...]

Car Now resprayed »

The pictures dont really do the car any justice at the moment as they were taken in poor light with a phone. But it gives an indication of just how good the car looks and what a nice paint job it has.

Respray progress »

Banburys http://www.banburys.net/ have been doing fantastic work on the painting side of things. The car has had a lot of it taken back to bare metal. All the windows have been taken out and the Bumpers, Doors, Bonnett, and Tailgate have also been taken off.  I would give them 11 out of 10 for what they [...]

Lots and lots of Shiny stuff!! »

I had the Plenham and throttle bodies done at GS polishing http://www.gspolishing.co.uk/index.html they cost around £450 to do and took around a month to complete. I sent them up there and he posted them back. The chap was no trouble at all and he turned out to be reliable.
As we got the engine apart there were [...]

Removed all the Dash to have LEDs Fitted »

We took all the instuments out as well as the dash board, window switches, key switch and pods. They are being sent to a member on the 300zx.co.uk website. They will have blue LEDs fitted as well as new white dials, a carbon backing and chrome bezel rings. I have had the bits out the car for [...]
