    Howdy from that Z guy

    Post  cornercarver on Tue Mar 16, 2010 7:54 am

    Hey I'm Jared, I have 2 cars at the moment. The 74 Datsun pickup is my daily car, but i want to do something cool with it in the future. One project at a time though.


    My project car is an 86 300ZX. I bought it about 3 years ago bone stock before I could drive manual. I've fixed things that went wrong and recently started modifying. It has a Z32 Brake Master Cylinder, some poly suspension bushings, Ground Control coilovers with Bilsteins, and Enkei RPF1s with Dunlops. I've also taken some useless things out of the engine bay.
    Right now I'm putting in a decently large turbo and all the nice things that support that.


    And this is about how it sits at the moment, except the engine is torn down:

    I was considering a trophy truck, but i think the Datsun will become a fun backroad/drift truck. Just thinking briefly, a nissan motor swap and maybe the coilovers from my z when/if upgrade them.

    Thanks for the compliments, I haden't seen RPF1s on a Z31 yet, so I took kind of a risk but it turned out good!
