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.

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 Read the rest of this entry »

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 Read the rest of this entry »

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 Read the rest of this entry »

Relocating the fuse box to inner wheel arch

This job has taken James a few days to do but it will be well worth it.  Its a very slow job to do and critical to label and document the whole process. The fuse box wires were all cut then extended through a hole into the bulkhead then extended and re connected. Then some spacers were made to mount the fuse box in the front of the wheel arch just below the light. It is fairly accessible from either underneath the front bumper. Im not sure how possible this would be to do with the side mount intercoolers still in as we have put a front mount intercooler in.
