Re: DJZ's 280ZX

The doors on this have always rattled when they're closed and I couldn't figure out why everything looked okay, the doors on the white car close way nicer. Turns out under the plastic in the door strikers is supposed to be some other kind of bush and mine must have perished. Wish I'd bought new scre...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

First trial of the 3D printed manifold, it needs a bit of tweaking but overall it's pretty good.

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Got the pedal box and steering column back in, new clutch master cylinder on too. One step closer.

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Got the original pedal box out of this today, will put some paint on the manual one tomorrow once it's a bit warmer and hopefully put it back in the car tomorrow. Then I can put the clutch hydraulic bits back in it and start on the rear end.

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

The new printer got installed over the last fortnight but the Windform material won't be here for a bit, but I've started back on the inlet manifolds, I'm pretty happy with where they're at apart from the inlet ports, I'm going to put them on the inside of the valley rather than the outside like OE,...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Borrowed some stuff called Spabond from work to glue on a hood prop catch thing, it hasn't had one since I put the fibreglass bonnet on. Also put some on the corner of the front kit where it meets up with the flange on the guard, it broke through a little bit and the bolt was floating in air. I'm tr...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Made up a little carbon plate to block up where I removed the dash light dimmer etc, it's probably only temporary but it looks okay. Started putting the other bits of the dash back together too, I saved a bunch of screws from the Laurel interior when I scrapped that so I'm using some of those to mak...

Re: DJZs 2+2

Here's a better picture of it with the new wheels on it, I'll polish them up later on. https://i.imgur.com/goIr9Tw.jpg It looks like the steering rack is leaking, when I had jacked up the other day water started leaking out of the right hand rack boot, I gave it a squeeze and quite a bit came out, n...

Re: DJZ's other 280ZXs

Haven't done much on this lately, still looking for the thermostat housing parts for it. Work has just bought a big 3D printer that prints a carbon fibre impregnated plastic stuff called Windform, one of the things it's used for is inlet manifolds so I think instead of machining them out of ali I mi...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

I did the wiring for getting rid of the dimmer switch and the lights have been working fine so far. I haven't actually driven it that much in the last six weeks or so. I have a love/hate relationship with the clutch, once it's warm it's not actually that bad to drive, when it's cold it's really terr...
