I open myself for you criticism!

Open S30 Z Discussions 13 Oct 2013
Hi all! I have been underground for a while working on my '76 280z. I decided to hold off posting until I had something worth showing. My 280z was a bit of a whore in a prom dress. As I disassembled it and mounted it in the rotisserie it became obvious that I had a bit of a basket case...

Open S30 Z Discussions Today, 09:12 AM
Thanks for any replies first of all.   Is the crank nose pulley originally the block color, blue/green? Is the TDC pointer yellow cadmium?  If so any recomendations on a paint color alternative?  Maybe a brass or gold hobby paint?   Thanks, Cliff

What else are you in the market for?

Open Chit Chat 17 Jun 2015
As much as I love my 240z my yearning to drive and own other cars never rests.  There are many dream cars on my list such as a Lamboghini Countach, Mirua, Ferrari Testarossa, and more.  However, there are plenty of "normal" and affordable cars I would like to own as well.  Which br...

Open S30 Z Discussions 27 Nov 2015
The one by a member in Russia. Has a nifty super-detailed model. Spent an hour looking here and on google, can't find it anywhere.   Bought me a new CAD, Viacad pro, got 30% off for BF. Probably not good enough to open the model he posted, but worth a try. Want to try to CAD some freaky head...
