not much work has been done so far due to the fact that parts are hard to get these days.... so far i got my angel eyes installed on to the 280zx, got a bride zeta III sport bucket seat (bought from a JDMST member) waiting for seat rails, front bar is being made at the moment, side skirts have to be customed aswell, GT wing last thing on the list.. but thats gotta wait paint job first... engine wise.. still contemplating whether to put a rb25det or just recondition the L28E motor =S pics on the angel eyes intall soon.. when i figure out how to first.. :P here's a hint with old cars... you'll get lots of cuts and bruises... and u might wanna do this somewhere on nice flat concrete or some sort, not on grass which i did.. cause the car does not run at all atm (no petty in the car)..

HIHI Oz001,

as I'm a fellow Zed owner myself. My only advise is... be careful of the prices at wreckers. A lot of us has be scorned by supposed "zed specialist stores".

I've been charged brand new old stock prices for second hand stuff.

So on to where i get my parts.

I get a lot of NOS parts from www.thezstore.com, based in America... buy multiple items and ship in one go. They are genuinely good in pricing. They all own zeds and they have honor in selling to other zed owners. They also stock some rust repair panels as well, if your doing a full restoration.

check out www.auszcar.com for the Australia community of zed owners. You can also get valuable information there. Theres also a Brisbane based wrecker who ships parts interstate for god damn of a cheap price too. Unfortunately i can't remember his details. Post your wanted items there and he should give you a message.

Also check out www.hybridz.org for the North American and Canadian Zed owners community.

Hey Oz, maybe you could take a second to thank Fufu for his great advice above? This is a community, after all.

yeah he knows, we both talked to each other on the other z forums too... his advise was given (and yes thanks), but i know already all that stuff already... he just probably never spotted me on the other forums before that.

Did you end up getting sorted for parts?

i got some parts from japan (Kameari) and some from local retailers like just jap and some parts from the wreckers. ive owned a zed for a long time since i was 18 all the parts i needed were from japan or wreckers out of z31's and r31
