Very clean looking Z

How many examples did you look at before you found this one? Is there hope out for to find a nice clean one?

Too much white for my liking but looks quite neat which is good.
I vote for L31 with 6 throttle EFI myself though ;).

You're going to cut the guards up on a clean car for the flares?
I love ZG flares but i'd be loathe to cut up a clean shell to fit them.
Just the way i am though haha.

great cars........really takes you back in time when you go out on a long drive.

List of things to look out for:
1. Rear boot body seal - to prevent vacuming in exhaust fumes into cabin
2. Don't rev the motor like a honda as their not revvy motors : ).
3. Best to take the car to a carby specialist to set it up nicely for you so it starts easily and idles and runs well.

They only need black mirrors, bre wing, front air dam and a set of wheels and your pretty much there in terms of looks. Pump in about $20K and it'll be a credible track car.

I agree the white bumpers and everything looks crap, and I'm not a fan of the wheels. It should be awesome when you do what you have planned though

1. Also check the for loose breather lines in the engine bay to stop any fuel smells.
2. Rev the shit out of it my friend. The L-series loves to rev. My car will red line all day long if I have the funds to fill the tank all the time.

As for your black and white scheme. Take out the tail light garnish and paint it matte black. MAD DAWG!

I like the wheels, just lower it more :D

i really like these cars a mate has 1.
Only thing thats off putting in hearing rust that is pinhole, keyhole or perhaps entire sections in firewalls and floorplans has been a turn off.
Cause with most cars you can start off with modifications straight on example performance or handling.
But these old skool zeds you have to do a bodywork and i prefer it being done properly as in cut it out not sand and body filler it up.

Whats the body condition i wonder beyond the gleeming paint. ~*

14-12-11, 11:23 PM
respect to the car mate, not a fan of how its progressing though...

im not a purist - with such a good base i don't understand why or where this is going...

once again this isnt hate - each to their own...

i just dont get it...

Gil
14-12-11, 11:32 PM
I don't get you.

What's wrong with it? It's actually looking better.

Stivva
15-12-11, 12:39 AM
Hollywood89; you are a dope. The tail light is meant to be black, they were never ever color coded from factory. The flares and spoiler are factory parts and the wheels are periods correct. How is this not a purists car albeit not concourse.

So, what is the problem... Player?

BU11ET
15-12-11, 02:57 PM
all good

If you do RB26 it has to be NA with ITBS :P

That looks awesome !! love the wheels ;) I'm loving the flares on it looks heaps better breaks up the white & I've always had a thing for flares on the old school Nissan's ! I think you hav done well with it. as for lowering it i think it looks fine maybe lower it just a little bit wouldn't go extreme , everyone always tells me to lower my car but i like it old school dragster stance lol each to their own which is great and in the end everyone doesn't hav to like it just the one behind the wheel all in all you hav a sweet ride there!!!
