Well, my body shop just finished blocking and priming my Z. Looks pretty good, he had one sag that he will cleanup when he scuffs it. I can't wait to get this back together and start driving it!

Looks good.

What color are you going to do?

920 Gold (Safari Gold). The same color as in the wells and jambs. That was the color when it was new and I love it.

I took it down to bare metal and my painter painted the interior, engine bay, jams and wells prior to blocking so that if I damaged anything while installing the engine he could fix it easily.

Are you keeping those wheels? If not, please let me know. Those are identical to mine.

What brand are yours? These look like enkei knock offs to me and I can't find a manufacturers stamp.

I am probably going to keep these until I find 4 11/69 rims and "D" caps.

What brand tires are you running? Mine are Michelin MXL Radial X 195/70R14. Brand new but cracked on the side wall from sitting for 20 years.

I've included a better picture so you can see if they really match.

The style is Enkie 40 / Enkie Apache. Mine have the Enkie stamp on the outside face.

I just picked up some Bridgestone R960AS Pole Position tires a few months back, after a lot of searching they were the best option for 14" rims. Up until then I had been rolling on 20 year old rubber for about 2 years. Didn't have any problems until I ran over a nail. the rubber was pretty severely cracked between the treads on every tire so I decided to spring for some new shoes.
