  1. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    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.

    This week I stripped down my P90a head to see what I am working with. I also tackled my most difficult rust repairs to date. https://youtu.be/tl9fe8yd1z8

    This week I tear down the bottom end of my L28 and repair some rust holes in my front cowl. https://youtu.be/wzmXpO2KXnM

    This week I tackle stretched sheet metal with the bonnet repairs, and I start pulling apart the engine. https://youtu.be/8A6NoBElz44

    Unfortunately, I am finding getting the paint off is messy no matter what way I tackle it. Getting there though

    This week I have a go at making a stud puller to do some dent repairs and I pull the engine out of the car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04dnCI7cqP0

    This week I get into stripping the many many layers and years of paint and bog off of the Z. It is a very slow messy job, but it has to be done. Music has been changed in this one. Better? Worse? Give up?

    I am not a music guy by any means. I am open to suggestions, but it needs to be royalty free music. The selections are not great. If you give me links to good royalty free stuff I will happily use it. The other issue is that music taste is so subjective, that no matter what I do, someone will hate it

    I knew it was pretty clean, but that is the first time I saw how super clean it actually was.

    Now I am actually working on my Z I thought it was about time I actually started learning something about it
  12. Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    Hey guys, I have owned my 1971 240Z for around 12 months now, but this week I have finally been able to start work on it. I have been going hard on my other project, a 1973 Porsche 911 RSR inspired build, but I am waiting for custom engine parts, so I can finally start my Z project. I bought the car as someones failed project, so it was completely stripped. Everything is there though, and it is an amazingly clean, rust free shell, so it should make for a great project. This week I first needed to replace the front wheel bearings on the 911 so I could put wheels on it and move it out of the way. I then got into doing a stocktake on my Z to see what it needed, and start formulating a plan for the build. Here is the episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoNU6IjrrEU
