Front end 'spook' options..

Recommended Posts

Here are the pictures. You will notice a little rust on these parts but I am sure that the metal is still good. There are no dents. I will sandblast the parts in a booth that I have and I will make sure that I use low pressure so I will not damage the panels. I cna blast these even if you are unsure to see how these look. Let me know.

I would like to see how they clean up in your booth if its not too much trouble. I have a bead on some other left and right parts now that may clean up as well. I am considering buying both sets just to ensure I can get the best possible parts for my car.

No problem I will try to get it done tomorrow if not Monday. I will shoot some pics when I am done.

I have all three parts rust and dent free. The two sides are in in primer and ready for paint with the center in brown.

We dont live that far apart so shipping wont be that bad. So you are thinking about a trade for that airdam on your car in the photo?

Well, I blasted both parts today... I only used about 60 pounds of pressure so I wouldn't damage the metal. There were 4 different color paint on there. I went to to bare metal on the front but I kept most of the original primer on the backside. Where the rust was the metal is a little pitty. There are a couple cracks that are visible now that all of the paint is gone. This is one of the advantages to getting it down to bare metal, it takes all the guessing out of what is actually underneath the paint. At least you know what is there. I believe the cracks can be fixed with some wleding and the pits can easily be smoothed out with some filler (or just ground down). Obviously these are not in pristine shape so I will understand if you don't want them. Let me know either way.

YOu sir are a class act to go through that much trouble. But your right, I do not have the skills to fix that, and I would rather wait until I find a rust/crack free pair instead of paying somebody to fix that.

THanks so much for your efforts, I thank you again.

Well thank you for the compliment.

No problem. I understand you want a perfect set. I am new to the Z community and I will definetly be around for quite sometime (especially the way my car sits right now).

That was first class, please check out my add in the wanted list.

If you can't find good sides in the next two months contact me I can sell you my extras. I want to hold on to them till I get the car painted in case the ones on the car are not as good as they look. As we see in the pics. above.

HELP...

My corner valances came in as well as my center ones, and A few of those nut plates on the corners. Looks like a clip with a nut welded to it. Well the have some bolts have rusted and been twisted off.

I need to find more of those nut plates that clip on so after I get these prepped sanded and painted, I can put new clips on. Also would like to find a place to buy the bolts that are factory spec to attach my valance pieces to the car.

You can still get them from the dealer. I can give you the part numbers if you need them.

I can actually say that there are a few of those nuts that are still in good shape on my pieces. how many do you need? you can have them. Maybe we can get something useful out of those junk pieces....

Don't worry I haven't forgotten about these. I have been pretty sick the past week. I am going down to the garage tonight so I should be able to get a few clips. I did find one in my sandblast booth. Are these the ones you are looking for. If so PM me your address and I will send these off to you as soon as possible.

UPDATE:

I just received my MSA spook air dam. I can say that I am pretty satisfied with it. The mold is free of defects and the edges are clean and crack free. It looks to be quite thick and should hold up well. Pics to follow.

I promise to send those clips out as soon as possible. There was only one good clip on the corner pieces. I think there might be some on the center valance. I am going to the garage tonight to put the summer tires back on my wife's subie so I will check then.

Good news....I have 4 good pieces. There were three good clips on the center valance so I brought them into work today and sandblasted them so they all looked the same. I dropped them in the mail at lunch time. I would think you will get them by next week sometime.

Mr. Perry came through as he is a man of his word. I also received an update from bad dog parts that they are sending me a new front valance. There is also a chance that dk240z and I may do some trading parts. Either way, my front valance is going to be installed hopefully within the month. Cant wait to get 'spooked'

The new front valance from John at Bad dog parts, was immaculate! I will be taking the parts to the paint shop on Monday along with the front spook!

Good times!
