[2017] What Did You Do To/with Your Z Today?

Recommended Posts

That floor would usually be described as "surface rust". Technically, not a lie. Just not the whole truth.

I was in the garage working on my Jeep, looked over to the Z with all the dust on it and thought "I've got to get this sold"..

Much as I hate to do it the sweet Z must go. I've had it since 1981 but haven't done anything with it for at least 5 years.  I'm getting too old and enjoy offroading too much to do any justice with the Z.

Will be a bad day when it goes from my life - just love that car to pieces.

So I took some photos and put her inside again and the battery on charge.

This stripe kit is what was left over from another project. I wanted to see how they looked on mine.

I plan to remove these and get longer ones that go further down to the side body line.

I plan to use the approximately same color. Although I might have someone photoshop some different colors.

Actually had a few hours free to work on my Z. I waxed the rear suspension parts and began to put it back together including the new rear hangers with mounting points for installation of sway bar. I am still waiting for the new springs then rear upgrade will be complete, then will start on the front suspension.

Finally got around to install some under dash lighting with LED's.  Not exactly finished yet but I'm glad to address the black abyss issue when something fly's off the passenger seat and lands in the "wait until daylight" area.  It'll be one less flashlight to carry.

The bad part is now it'll show how dirty the floor is :ermm:.

Greg, are your seats done in a brown leather? From what I can see they look good. I'm going through that "what am I going to do about my worn out seats phase" right now. Can't make up my mind what to do.

No, not real leather.  I ordered off of Ebay and it was a leather look alike but substantially cheaper. I had to do foam replacement also so I was trying to save a few $. Also, I was originally trying to match the Ginger color on the door panels, but decided on these instead. They wound up being shipped from Karachi, Pakistan.
