240z - fabbing new front rails

Recommended Posts

Finally got all the major pieces fabbed up for the rad support.  Pretty tricky piece but almost there ....

Punching oval holes was hit and miss so I need to decide what to do with the two bottom holes? I might just punch round ones and then drill / dimple die the 6 holes on the back of the lower rad support...

Hope to wrap this up on the weekend ....

I would love to be there at the first Z car show you take it to and watch the faces as they try to figure out what is different about your car.

Might have to delete this whole thread LOL 😉

That looks good. A very hard part to duplicate. Imagine what repops would cost if they were available?

Thanks!  So I don’t know but I have quite a few hours into it (including some “grrrr-just walk away time”) so I imagine it wouldn’t be cheap.

So I need a little bit better dust management now that spring is sprung, so I can take the covers off the summer cars and still grind away (literally) on all the weld cleanup that I need to do on the front end...

Enter dust booth V1.0. ...

Made from 1 1/4 angle iron (Meccano for Adults 😉) and 6 mil vapor barrier. I might add a fan and filter - we’ll see how it goes...

and yes it will double as Part A of the modular paint booth when the time comes 😀😀😀

I like it!  I was just about to start building my paint booth out of 2x4" but the adult Meccano looks a lot easier to tear down afterward.

Thanks!  Home Depot Canada had the 8 ft lengths on for $13.20 a piece, which I thought was pretty cheap .....cleaned them out 😀

And the adult Meccano  is very light to reposition.  The whole assembly can be pulled with one hand...
