Z31 N/A RB project

Recommended Posts

My painter should be back onto my car very soon once he finishes up the Bronco that started before mine. The engine is ready for piston to valve clearance check with aggressive cam settings and then they will be degreed in with the other 5 piston install following so hopefully the engine will be done soon too. 

While I wait, I finally recieved my 1984 Nissan Skyline that I found/bought searching Japanese sites. It arrived to my door just under 5 months from my original purchase and holy cow, did it exceed my expectations! I lowered it but need to come back up about 1/2-3/4". Have some small plans for the car but it's just about perfect in every way and is the best looking Skyline I have ever seen hands down!

Haha, I now have the Mercedes E55 AMG as a daily, the 95 Nissan D21 hardbody for bad weather and hauling, the Z31 300zx in the paint shop and this 84 Skyline. 

That's just the glass itself. I bought a circular polarizer filter for my new camera and it really shows the patterns in all glass which I love. You can see it in person sometimes inder just the right light.

Perfect, is that a heated windshield we're seeing?  I have lost track of how many cars you have.

I’ve lost track too and I’m his Dad. I’ve raised a monster, but this is a really cool car.....when I think about, they have all been really cool cars.

The Z31 is finally back on. The painted finished the Bronco so now mine is 9-5 until finished. Should be by the end of the month. The short block is assembled too. He just need to button up a few things so should be picking that up as well. 

The side skirts didn't fit as well as I would want on the 86 body. It used a rubber gasket that is unsightly and impossible to find so he trimmed the sideskirt a tad to be perfectly smooth and then welded in some metal to close all skirt to body gaps while retaining the OE door gap.
