  1. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    I am back into the roll cage this week and I finally get it all together. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-bqBIAMlI&feature=youtu.be

    Happy New year guys. I have finally got stuck back into the Z. Continuing to work on the roll cage this week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYvV8Fny_ys

    This week I have started to build the roll cage for the Z, but of course in the process I discover more rust.... AAAAaaaarrrghhh!!! https://youtu.be/T0Je59bdHec

    I am happy painting mine. I think a chrome powder coat would look good on small things, but I am not confident it would look good on big things. Also Eastwood products are not available in Aus, so shipping and duties, etc, makes them expensive.

    This week I have been fighting with the front end, trying to get all of the parts to fit neatly. https://youtu.be/IrmiyR5RYVQ

    I have looked at that. The issue is that I have to import Eastwood products to Australia and they get expensive once you start adding shipping and duties, etc.

    Back into it after having my 911 build video go viral with over 11 million views in the first 5 days. This week it is time to fit some wheel arch flares to my Z. https://youtu.be/wUU_RbKB0B8

    This week I gave paint stripper another go, and it works much better if it there are not 20 layers of paint and bog. The whole car is almost rust free now, just a couple of small bits to go. https://youtu.be/ahWcxJTxH1E

    Wow, that looks very interesting. I will have to have a look at that for the future. It is a pity I am basically done.

    This week I finally finish repairing all of the rust damage on my doors. Getting there slowly. https://youtu.be/fymqcDQDGxI Jeff

    This week I have been back at it, cutting rust out of these doors. I am quite happy with how the repairs are coming along, but it is so time consuming. https://youtu.be/y9y4rWSP_OY Jeff

    This week I work away at finishing that terrible door. It is a lot of rust and a lot of work, but I am stubborn enough to keep at it. Jeff

    Are my 240Z's doors completely rusted out and junk? They have been covered up with a mountain of bog and paint, so this week I strip them down and see if I can save them. https://youtu.be/hBSwD9SqgdU

    I did that this week with the initial spot welds. To be honest, you could do a little bit of hammer and dolly every spot weld as you go, or as I have, a little bit at the end. The warping I got was nothing major, but I think the main thing that people need to know, it whatever you do.

    Possibly, but it would be super slow. The problem with MIG welds is that they are really hard, which is why they take so much grinding.
