  1. About 2 years ago I purchased my 280z for 300$. It was a rusted sad looking car that was stripped. I brought it home where I didn’t have a garage and just started stripping it. I got laid off that winter so I took it down to bare chassis. I took all of the suspension pieces and brought them to bare metal and painted them all. I put the car back come spring time then stripped the engine bay and interior following with a coat of paint. For a while I was gonna go with the 280zx turbo motor but then i changed. I ordered a 1JZ-GTE non VVTI and grabbed a trans from a Pontiac solstice. I taught myself how to weld when patching the sheet metal then took classes and actually got a job as a welder making decent money. I funded the z, grabbed a dash with gauges, interior pieces, wiring harness, front fenders and more. I welded up engine mounts and trans mounts, a driveshaft, and I even made brackets and mounted s13 calipers on the back! Now I wired the old to the new motor harness and I’ve had it running after welding in brackets and mounting my fuel cell. I can drive the car down the block but it runs rich as a pig and brakes up on any throttle. I’ve literally replaced about every single sensor on the motor and the ecu and igniter. Heck I hooked up an e manage ultimate to try and get it tuned out but nothing. I’m gonna try hooking up a fuel pressure regulator to see if that helps since I’m running a Bosch 044. I’ll keep posting for this build since I’ve since gotten a house with a big garage! I’m hoping to get it street ready by the time I’m 22! (April) thanks!!
  2. hey guys, im new to the community. ive always loved Z's and i finally bought my first project. a few hundred for a frame. im going to be building it from the ground up. with stuff i buy new, and things i salvage from scrape yards. ill include pictures and welcome any help or advice. im mainly posting this so i stay enthusiastic about the painful build that is to come. it will be show worthy when im done tho. looking forward to talking to all of you guys.
  3. Does anyone know if it is hard to remove a gas tank in order to clean it? I found build up (of old gas, I assume) in my fuel filter as my car seems to be starved of fuel. Any advice will be appreciated! Thanks!
  4. -Photobucket currently will not let me put anyting bigger than a avitar sized photo... sorry An elusive item in our Z cars is the build sheet, I dont know what I have here but It looks like one to me... I was at a local junk yard here in St. Louis and came across TWO '73 240s, one a green RUST FREE (OK not rust free but perfect doglegs none the less!) crushed at the top of a pile of cars... Then I came across the rusty shell of a 73, I had seen this Z on creigslist less than a month eariler for sale for $600, the Z was all original including paperwork from the dealer warnty book and card Radio guide and A/C install info papers. I grabbed the Splash pan off it along with other various items. When I moved the center console out of the way down fluttered the "build sheet" with various marks on it... What is it??? anybody seen this before??? http://www.flickr.com/photos/42150949@N07/?saved=1
