Electrolabs 72 240z build

Recommended Posts


I had completely forgotten the car was yellow and green, it's been quite while hasn't it, two and half yrs.  Some of you may recognizes the slapped together rotisserie, this is it's forth appearance  in these build threads.

Just a few updates while I'm waiting for the z to get back from paint.

R200 refurbished with new seals and fresh paint. Painted hood hinges and a few misc. parts.

Got my tank from gas tank exchange (local gas tank restore business)

Oh wow, that's looking great.  Very similar to what I'm doing on my car..l. Xenon front air dam and the 240z bumpers.  I'm looking at getting a set of Rota RKRs, the Watanabe's are a bit out of my price range.

Where are you getting it painted?  I'm also in Toronto and looking for a shop.  Thx

Thanks, I actually have a nice set of 15x7 watanabe's that I plan on using ?

Body shop is called rt_auto11, you can look them up on instagram. They are located in Scarborough near 401 and Kennedy.

Nice set of wheels!

Thanks for the body shop name,  I'm also located in Scarbs so this works out for me.

It's been a while since my last post. I finally got the Z back mid January and made some progress.

Brake lines complete and suspension installed

Engine bay harness installed. I still have to figure out the engine bay relay's as they did not come with the car for some reason.

Trying out this new window gasket from Spaenaur #825-065 as my Z did not have any of those "S" clips that attach to the OEM fender rubber seals.

I decided to go with wider Watanabe's 15X9 -13 rear and 15x8.5 -6 front and run the marugen shoukai fender flares as I'm not happy how my rear quarter panels ended up. The painter messed up the body line and the inner lip of the rear quarter is full of filler.

Hi all,

 

Just a follow up on my build

I had @grannyknot over today helping install the L28 and the install went great despite spending most of the time looking for the correct hardware ? thanks for your patience @grannyknot

Looks like I will need to purchase a new pertronix igniter kit as some how the previous owner decided to cut the main wires that feed the igniter.

Just another quick update.

 

The Z is almost on the road, I had few minor electrical issues and I'm currently waiting for a new brake master vac.

My new seats finally came in from Japan after waiting almost 2 months due to Covid-19.
