240k Style

Yonmeri love, my 1975 240k c110 sedan

    Needed to sort out some lighting issues for Rego.

    I noticed that the rear number plates weren't working, time to investigate

    Oh goodie :shock:

    These are the light lenses....

    So it seems they've been swimming in water AND the lenses have almost perished. I've ordered new lenses but they have to come from Japan so until then I'll use what I have.

    Cue music and hard work.

    Well I made it to the show! The Skyline Nationals 2014, hosted by Classic Skylines Australia was amazing.

    Personally the car ran great. After doing 280km's over 8 days since back on the road I did 450km in a day!!! Not one hiccup!!

    Here's some photos of the car at the event!

    The only down side was it was raining on the way up. But I managed to meet some friends and had an awesome cruise up regardless!

    Now to continue to improve her. The suspension needs work so I'll get stuck in!!

    Been at it again. More parts for the Yonmeri.

    The 4x4 ride height was annoying me as well as the stuffed shocks.

    New parts :tu:

    And the end result!!

    The front has come down 30mm. The back 50mm!!!! Had very tall rear springs for towing.

    The new springs are a thicker diameter too, so combined with the new shocks she is a real blast to drive!!

    Just need to drop in my pre emissions 240Z SU's and an exhaust and you won't be able to wipe the smile from my face!!!!

    Yeah I know, it would have been great to get to and my daughter wanted to go but it wasn't meant to be.......we're about to get work done to her 280zx to rid the rust, so she can take her own next time around :)

    Ok made another car show. 2014 Classic Japan in Melbourne.

     
    Managed to get some mates together and had six (yes SIX!!) 240K C110's together. I'll bet its been a LONG time since that many were together in one place in Aus.
     
    Pity about the weather though. Heres some pics. The blue beast went great as usual, but MAN i need an EXHAUST hahaha.

    The gold sedan and the white coupe managed to get registration the wednesday before the show. Fantastic effort!!!.
     
    Can't wait till summer proper hits to go on runs with these guys!!

    Would love to cruise with you 240k guys, but 5 and a half hours drive to get to Melbourne kills it for me.

    If I can get to Melbourne in the Rocket I'll be sure to hit you up on here first :)

     

    Alternatively, if any of you make it up around Mildura way, let me know!!

    It's a shame you're so far away....although i DID go to Nhill for this car!

     

    Anywho....car is dead at the moment.

     

    Fuel pump has sprung a substantial leak...pissing fuel onto the battery. I'll pull it down soon and probably make up some new gaskets

    Are you on there Red? 

     

    And did you go to Bay to Birdwood last event??

    Hey Adam, haven't stopped by this site for a few months so just saw the message.......

    I'm not on Faceplant :D  There's enough to suck the time out of my life without being active on there as well, my wife is on it so I will get her to join the group for me so I can at least keep a finger on the pulse.

    I did enter the Rocket in last year's Bay to Birdwood and she went ok, apart from a niggling carby issue which I have since fixed.

    We got to cruise most of the run to Birdwood amongst the Prince Skyline club cars, so that was really cool.  We were the only 240k car!!!!  Sedan or coupe, and I only saw one or two Z cars.  There was like a dozen Prince Skylines though :)

    Also did a trip to Victor Harbour towing my bike to get it Dyno tuned there, she worked hard towing that trailer at 110 :) used a fair bit more fuel than normal and a bit of oil, but was a good trip.  Don't think I'll use her a as a long haul tow car again though.

    How are all your projects coming along?
