    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    This week it is back to sanding and primer on the 680, but it all heads towards getting it ready for the final paint.

    Home Built Z 'Full video build'

    This week I finally get the colour onto my 240z. It has almost been 12 months of work to get to this point, and it still has a long way to go, but it is great to reach this milestone.

    Nice work. If you noticed with all the work I put into my bonnet, I ended up giving up and just bought a repro one. I am ashamed of myself for caving in, but I gave it my best 😉

    Lumber here is definitely in mm not inches by the way. I have done a lot of carpentry and it is pretty spot on. Structural here is bang on 90x45mm, etc, we don't have 2"x4"s like the US have. Not 100% sure on the steel though.

    That may very well be the case, but my small brain can't handle all those fractions, so I work in mm 😉

    This weeks job was to mount my seats to the car, but nothing ever goes smoothly, and there is always that last bit of rust...

    Yep. The front cover needs to go back on before the oil pan.

    This week I finish off the head assembly and mount it to the block. It is coming together and I am getting excited.

    Yep. I briefly mentioned it, but I am following the book 'how to rebuild your L series engine' so hopefully it all goes together the way it should 😉
