The great BEFORE and AFTER thread

Recommended Posts

I only have the "before" photos...working on the post-divorce budget (some of you may know about that...hopefully not many), so the paint and engine freshening will have to wait a couple more years. My beat-up 92k mile survivor still runs great and has lots of patina...I'm almost tempted to leave it as-is. The next step in the refreshening will be the exhaust...I'm working on a deal to buy an original Nichira exhaust from a guy in Calif...I like originality (the near-perfect header pipe is from Earthcruiser's silver '71...thank's Rod Timby). BTW, next year's cash will go for my wedding in Vegas or Clearwater...the future "head-of-the-war-dept", my fiancee Susan...she doesn't seem to mind my "old car nonsense" (what the ex-wife called this hobby). The 2nd photo was taken last night on the 1st anniversary of our 1st date. This is a great thread...Best regards to all

The rear-view mirror is the only thing you should be looking back in. I believe the picture of the two of you should be labeled "Future".

Good luck...

Here is my before and after of the L28 I'am building for my Z. The motor is still missing a few components but the hard part is done with.

Here's my early 260Z. It was stripped to bare metal and I painted it Daytona Blue. It's a turbocharged L28, intercooled, 4 wheel disc brakes, 17x7 wheels, 5 speed, LSD rear, etc.

Thanks! I wish I had some interior and engine shots handy. Maybe I'll post some tonight. BTW, the red Z in the background is a '74 Fairlady Z. I wish I still had it. A guy flew up from Texas and drove it home.

I found some interior shots of my blue 260Z turbo. The car currently has Miata seats that are black with blue leather inserts.
