I heard from the guys at Wright Automotive, you have had a mate helping you on this. Awesome build - just needs a squirt of paint on the exterior now.

Excited that it can be moved easily now but yes, it's good to finally get it back on it's feet.

I haven't found those spindle pins that Mike send down sorry but they are somewhere here. They will turn up. I found my old cotter pins finally which we buried in the replated parts bin, so put them in for now. Even managed to ID every correct replated bolt and put it where it should go. Amazed me!

The new spindle pins went in with a bit of copper grease in no less than 20 seconds. It took me at least 2 hours to remove the old ones. Has to be the most time consuming job on a S30 without doubt.

Akaroa would be great, but sooner would be better, it's only been 10 years.

I think you owe it to us to bring this machine to Akaroa.
But even more importantly you owe it to yourself to drive this machine to Akaroa!
Plus it's the tenth anniversary cruise too! :tits:

This is a long shot. But rather urgent.

Car is being prepped for paint and I can't find one of the front bumper mounts. Need to fit the bumper to make sure the front lines up before blocking.

If you have a 240z front bumper mounting arm that you don't need for a few days, please let me know.

Cheers

No sorry, no idea where that is.

Sorted the bumper irons. Plenty more prep required before paint and coming together very nicely.
