UPDATE!!

The car now has carpet, i gave the interior a really good scrub down and it looks really good. Now to find a new dash or repair this one, and get a stereo of some kind.

I have new balljoints, and tie rods, master bushing set from energy suspension, and a full set of KYB shocks. The Suspension is coming apart this weekend. Will post more pics before i get too carried away with disassembly.

Ok
here's what's happening.

the suspension is back in with all new urethaine bushings, springs, tokico shocks, a 3:90 r200 diff, new porterfield RS1 brake pads and toyota 4 piston calipers up front. Sealed up a bad repair job done in the past, and got some new wheels for it. All that's left to do is bleed the brakes, put my exaust back on, and get my new tires mounted. It's so close i can almost taste it.

will post pics soon

Well here it is. The finished product. Unfortunatly my Cyclender head temp sensor decided to take perminant leave when i put it back on the ground (most expensive sensor in the engine next to the AFM). Cant wait to take it for a run. :D

Looks way better without the bumpers -are you going to try to find some early 240Z units now?
Love people and use things,
because the opposite never works.
