    Recently picked up a TT for a whopping 2K! [​IMG] Upon viewing i saw that it was a swapped chassis. No biggie! Just means most of the stuff i bought for my N/A will bolt right on! and no Hicas! obviously will not hold its value but it runs, drives, and is 2K... mods include, highflow turbos, chipped ecu (whatever that is), fake nismo steering wheel I'm currently looking for a Tommy Kaira m30z wheel, chromed up intake plenum, under plenum wiring kit, intake piping, http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums...0209785315374789_1114585503_o_zpshkdnknmz.jpg exhaust system with stock stock dumps (soon to change) Yokohama sienna's, thats all i can name off my head. I drove it straight to my friends place to fix up the nasty body damage. will write up another update shortly when i have some time! cheers

    Was originally painted white! it was then resprayed to brickyard red (AX8) I'm guessing the base coat was a little to light? I'm yet to have a good look at it, been at a friends house for a month and i've been well busy with work.. i did notice some excess from a cut and polish around trims? ill update you on the white stuff (lol)

    Updates, At last i'm not busy nor too tired to do anything at all! Car is currently at my friends garage. He will be responsible for all the body and prep work done to the car before it will be touched up in the current color (AX8 Brickyard red) and so far he is doing a ripping job! ill attach some photos of the body work, In the mean time I have been busy busting my ass / bank to get some awesome parts together! I also must rid the car of what was not intended to be inside it, Including Carbon fiber wrap in annoying places, autobots logos, fake nismo steering wheels.

    Its coming alive

    Well its been 13 months since i first picked up this haggard 300zx! I have driven it a hand full of times mainly to relocated from my friends shed to another friends shed... I'm starting to wonder whats going to happen next! with this weeks recent finding of a blown head gasket! perfect timing for a 2.3 hour + drive to east Melbourne to go to another friends shed ( he is trailing it to his spray booth )

    Regardless it got there safe! drove it like a baby the whole way and lost maybe 5cm worth of coolant from the top of the radiator a nice thick broth above the top YUMMY! the leak must be from firing ring to coolant gallery, no oil is in the coolant. It sat at a solid 76 degree's the whole way! happy days..

    So in the mean time, its time to think about whats going to happen next.. everything mechanical and ethical (carbon wrap + transformers autobots logos) have been taken care of appropriately!

    Basically my game plan is to pull down the sad Vg, get a sweet fuel set up, high flow TT's, and get a flex tune! (in a nut shell)

    other than that did some interior work, new additives, keen to start rebuilding the current VG :D my wish list as far as engine performance will be a pair of hks 2530's, 400rwkw flex fuel set up from rgs performance, some kind of dumps, mls gasket, arp head studs, solid lifters (maybe), and depending on condition maybe some bottom end work!
