Went to take pix of my dad's L28 build. I think he is putting this in the green car.

I also went to my favorite location for pix and snapped these two :)

The engine pix and the 510 pic are worth 1024x683 :) sorry dial ups

I hope you all don't mind a bit of off Zed topic (especially my dad :) ), but I wanted to post a few updates of the 510 in here.

The car is very nice but it had some issues. Carb issues and/or fuel delivery. The engine itself is an absolute beast. Today I had confirmation from Robello that they built the motor. And it is a screamer!!!! Door frames, B pillars and quarter windows were painted black which I didn't like. The engine bay was dirty not painted as well as the car itself. Finally, the interior was loud and obnoxious with no carpet.

Wolfcreek is finishing up with the manifold, carbs and linkage. The Twin Mikuni Solex 44's with Mikuni short manifold. Rebuild and clean. New linkage components and bead blasting. Locally I had the valve cover, grill, cowl, wiper motor, hood support assembly and a few other things bead blasted. From Friday after work until Monday eve I pulled the motor, stripped, cleaned and masked the bay followed by 3 coats of PPG spice orange and 2 coats of PPG high solids clear. My dad (Diseazd) got me a nice Devilbiss paint gung for my Bday. It is the single greatest tool I have ever owned. Lays glass smooth finish with no wetsanding and no runs!!!! Looks beautiful. ngs bead blasted

The window frames, B pillars and quarter window frames were black before. Sprayed those orange as well with the PPG base/clear after lots of masking. Last week I did a full dynamat kit. Carpet kit from Too intense should be here this week. Can't wait!! I hear good things about their products

This car is in need of a passenger side perfect dogleg (not Tabco) If anyone in AZ or CA has a perfect right side dogleg, I'd love to hear from you! Guy

I was thinking of getting Tabco doglegs for my car. I would be interested to know why you don't like them.

TIA,

Marty

Marty - I'm not sure why my Bodyman doesn't like them, but I do know he's a perfectionist and indicated that the fit wasn't good. I think a lot of guys on the forum have used them (made them fit) with some success.......you could check out some of the previous links to dogleg repair. Hell the dogleg on the car right now looks pretty good to me, but it's not OK with Chuck (and I want this car to be perfect!). Guy

The new clip welded in. Brand new OEM fenders and hood. The Arizona rear quarter completed! It won't be long now until the sanding,priming and paint goes on. This will be a concours Safari Gold Z! Another Z is saved from the Boneyard. The 240Z is truly a "real cool ride"!

It is so great to watch the progress you are making. I have no doubt that it will be stunning when finished.

Looks like the ugly rust monster has eaten through the lower sill section as well. I know it's not concourse but it would be wise to extend the cowl drain hose down to avoid the issue in future. I have brushed that area with copious amounts of fisholine in an attempt to prevent it happening again to mine. Make sure you make new cowl drain hoses as they perish and split causing water to drip into the footwell, behind the firewall jute and under the carpet jute as well...nasty. I think Enrique posted his mods in a thread a few years ago. If you search for it you will find some sound advise.

Keep them pics a coming.

That's not rust.....it's an undercoating overspray! I'm aware of the link, but this car will never see soapless water.
