DJZ's other 280ZXs

Postby DJZ » Fri Sep 14, 2012 9:30 pm

Err, well I caved and bought this, that's my old 2+2 in the background, the 2nd Z I had:

It's been pretty much stripped about 5 years ago and has sat in a mates garage ever since. It's certed for an L20ET so plans at the moment are probably going to be a 2.8L "L20ET", the 14" Pismo wheels off the DR and not much else. I'd like to do this one a bit more Japanesey than the other car.

I've been wanting to build another turbo L28 so this will be a good opportunity. I've got another front kit like the other Z that has been slightly modified that's in storage at a mates place in Auckland but I've also got what I think is a Central20 front lip so it might just end up with that. Got a spare R200 LSD as well and a couple of FS5W71C gearboxes in pieces, I kept the mount I made from when I had one behind the old 3.1L so I just need to get another bellhousing modified, or find a late LD28 box.

Some pics for inspiration:

Your such a ZX fiend! I like the plans for it, how can so many of you guys just go out and get more projects when I cant even finish one!

Hah, well I wouldn't consider any of mine finished, they are all on going projects :) I don't have a lot of patience for making things perfect first time round, I like things to be done right now and working even if they turn out a little ugly at first.

:D Gold !

i really like how clean the red one is, it seems to have a a hell of a lot more of the old "S30" aura going on than any of the others do

This was the project I was considering for ShellSport but I just don't see it being competitive with an L20 in it, and my wallet isn't that big. We'll see what happens with it in the future, I would like to get into some proper racing one day.
