  1. @jfa.series1 Jim, thanks! It seems like so long ago (pre-forum days) that I reached out to you and you shared your excel spreadsheet breakdown of your restoration. I don't know if you even remember that, but it meant a lot and gave me a starting point.
  2. @motorman7, thanks for the kind words! I was a little worried about going with the lizard skin but after it was done I was glad that I did and I think it came out nicely. Now it is time to start piecing it together. Good news, I just got ordered to stay in San Diego for 4 more years so there is no need to rush the project. I am following your thread very closely and hoping I can make mine look as good as what you are doing.
  3. So it has been a while. I hope the video posts correctly. 20190224_161240.mp4
  4. I got a call from John at Just Dashes today and he told me that they are not going to be able to repair the Tachometer Lens or the Clock Lens. He asked if I could source the parts it would help them greatly. I have been all over the sites looking for a place to get the lenses to no avail. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. On a positive note. The body is almost complete and should be home soon.
  5. Looking forward to watching your restoration. Looks like some body work is definitely in the cards for you but glad that you are keeping her alive. Clay
  6. Very nice looking car. Also, that's an awesome space to work on cars.
  7. @motorman7 great to see that you are taking on another restoration. Looks like this one will take my spot at the shop soon. Clay

    @siteunseen been talking to Sandyl in PM. Appreciate the bump brother.
  9. You don't know how lucky I am that the donor car was there and available. Many thanks =).
  10. I was thinking the same thing.
  11. So I went to Just Dashes last Friday and dropped my Dash and Center Console off. Talked to Abe and John for about an hour. I was really impressed with the staff there and their quality of work is top notch. Sorry I didn't take any pictures of the dash but really, who among us wants to see another Z Dash that has been thrashed over the years. I did take this one though. Saturday I went to Miguel's to make another payment and pick up my Front and Rear Suspension. I brought my friend from Dallas along to see the car and meet the master himself. It has been in the shop for a month and I think they are making great progress. I will start tearing into the rear suspension soon because I want to get the R180 checked out and rebuild the half-shafts. I am also looking into completely building the three wiring harnesses from scratch using new wire and vintage connectors. I can grab a fuse block off of summit racing and completely re-fabricate a plug and play wiring harness for 1121. I have been doing electrical work in the Navy for 19 years and looking at the existing harness and schematics, I know I can get it done. Im just wondering if this is something anyone else would be willing for me to do for them? Clay
  12. Welcome to the Forum. There are a lot of years of knowledge here. I would read as much as possible and never be afraid to ask a question. As far as your car being a black sheep and undesirable??? A car that was in production for only 1 year (here in the US) is not non-collectible in my book. Great job and good buy imho. Clay
  13. @Mark Maras That makes since in my mind, that chisel's blade angle probably made it easier didn't it?
