Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

Spent today doing odd jobs on this, put the near rear gearbox seal in, after cleaning up and removing the dust shield then having to weld it back on with James' tig on the wrong driveshaft I put the correct driveshaft in. Put the clutch slave cylinder and plumbing back on, filled it with fluid. Star...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got some new mirror glass cut out by North Canterbury Glass, he gave me half a left over tube of the proper stuff for sticking them in so hopefully no more fall out. Haven't done much else, drove it out to work for the track day and James helped me bleed the brakes which improved them but they aren'...

Re: DJZ's other other 2 seater 280ZX

After the Nationals I got some of my mojo back for working on this. Have almost got the rear end back together, axles are in, sway bar is sitting on it's mounts with no links yet, I used them on the black car so need to get new ones, torqued the control arm bolts up as I left them loose when I put t...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Big day for the Z today, went on the dyno at Specialised Auto Services for the NZ Datsun dyno day. I've been mucking around with a tune a bit over the last two weeks, got the timing map better after being told by the internet expects that my current my was "aids". Was having trouble gettin...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Pictureless update, this is booked in for a warrant with Damo on Wednesday so I thought I'd better put it back together. Had to take the car out of the garage to get the drivers door card off, the hardest thing to do on this door was actually getting the replacement clips for the top door trim/wiper...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Got the left hand side mirror painted and installed, I'm just using the cracked base plate things that they came with until I can find the time to make the new ones. Since I'm using the holes that were already drilled in the door they're a bit further forward that factory, I'll see how they go, when...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Decided to have a look at fitting the new door mirrors, it's been a long, long time since I've had the door cards off. The OEM door mirrors are a little bit weird, the right side one is fully plastic, the left hand side one has a metal base (cast zinc?). The bases for all the mirrors I've got are cr...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Have been working on this thing a little bit here and there when I've got time. 3D printed some new door escutcheons, they aren't quite 100% right, will muck around with them on the weekend. https://i.imgur.com/Fdl92pp.jpg https://i.imgur.com/glOnRsu.jpg Bought a box of mirrors, going to get rid of ...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

Finished fixing the front kit, for now at least. When I put the Fairlady Z bumper on the front I'll need to pull it off again and fix it properly, I used the holes that somebody had already drilled in it to put it together but half of them have pulled/broken through as they were too close to the edg...
