    Jeff,

    Congrats on getting it registered!!!.  Now the real fun begins.  There is nothing like the roar of a triple carbbied L-6.

    Do you ever intend to take it to a track day? That is where you car really get a feel for what these cars are capable of.  They are just shear joy to drive hard on a track.

    Enjoy!!

    Marty

    Bless you on the shingles! I've had that, no fun at all! Getting the rails adjusted properly in the doors is a big part of the window regulators and not overly worn or broken parts. The car sounds good and I didn't hear any worrisome noises.

    Good to know it all sounds normal. I just took it on it's first spirited shakedown run and it is such a blast to drive. The steering is pretty twitchy at high speed on the dodgy country roads, but the tramlining is to be expected with the width of the wheels and the camber it has.

    Overall, I love it 😄

    Jeff,

    That gear stick looks awfully, er, long.... (said the actress to the bishop). Is it in fact from a Skyline, like your steering wheel?

    This is my 3rd attempt at repairing my dash and hopefully the last. This time I have a go at flocking.

    I had flashbacks, Jeff! Flocking is a lot harder than all the other YouTube videos make it look (three tries for me until the results were "good enough"). Sorry to hear that you'll need to sell the Z to fund the other projects.

    Yes, the 680G is officially For Sale. After 2 years building it, I unfortunately need to move it on to keep plowing ahead with the Alfarrari and 911 builds. In this video I do the final few touches to finish it off.
