[2012] What did you do to/with your S30 today?

Recommended Posts

I've spent the last couple of weeks doing a total refurb on all the interior pieces of my '78. All the vinyl and plastic panels have been repaired, cleaned, and redyed black. I totally disassembled both seats plus the recliner and slider mechanisms and cleaned, relubed, and repainted. Then I dissassembled, cleaned, relubed, and repainted the steering column. Lastly, I repaired my badly cracked dash using the method shown here on the site and it turned out great. Now, if I can get the kids furniture out of my garage, I can finish up on the body work and maybe get the car in paint before I'm too old to drive.

The other day off the 237 entrance on 101, a jet black 370 slowed down to give a thumbs up - woohoo!

Now to look at that fuel pump today..

Justinyee,

I work close to 101 & 237. Once my engine's back together, we should have a mini Z-meet and a beer after work!

I took the front calipers apart - again - to once again try to find and alleviate the never ending screaming brake problem. I don't really think I can remember a time on either Z (260 or 280) when there was no screaming as the brakes were applied. I tried a different supper sticky brake pad adhesive to adhere the backing plates to the brake pads. We'll see if this works or not. ......(I'm betting not)

tried to sell my 78 280z 2+2. after no luck and some random time off last week decided to fix a fuel leak. what was supposed to be a $20 EFI fuel hose refresh turned into new injectors, hoses, clamps, new filters, oil, rear tires, starter, battery, and cleaned up the electric debauchery that was the fuse box. night/day difference, been driving it a lot the past two days. guess what's not for sale? for now at least...

got the thumbs up on roscoe & 405 this morning. nice! the honk was loud, made me jump.

Finally got the title to the z! Bought it on eBay in March with no title but had the local Indiana police stolen car check,

jumped thru the hoops in Colorado and was able to get a new title for it. Wasn't to hard just took awhile .......

I tuned the MS maps a little more tonight after fixing a few small coolant leaks. I've had a few pop up here and there since swapping in this engine. I think i'll have a few more pop up around the throttle body coolant lines sooner or later. We shall see.

I bought some Falken ZE-912s for the 240Z today. Now I just have to get the brake booster & master replaced, change out the coolant, inspect the hoses, and look for any other problems...

Car is in the garage for the winter - changing out the radiator to a Koyo polished aluminum. My original radiator is in fair condition - I will clean it/rod it/repair if needed and put it in storage with the rest of the original parts.

Certainly!

Yesterday i was driving back down 880 and saw 5 350z driving together. 4 of them exited off Auto Mall Parkway. Only 1 of them gave me the thumbs up :]

Today I popped it out of gear, pushed it forward a few inches, and put it back in gear so that the tractor with the snow plow on it will fit behind it for the winter instead of the mower. We are officially in snow plowing season in Ohio.
