  1. pull the valve cover off and look at the cam lobs could be a scuffed can lobe. look at the buckets do not pull the motor out or down. could also be a collapsed vale spring I bet it can be fix with a top end inspection.
  2. Painted the engine bay with the motor in. No over spray on the engine so fiddly took hours and hours.
  3. engine bay RED. Seam sealer next then back together
  4. under body silver I am going with for a cleaner look. 2 Pack bare metal etch Primer going on the repair area both towers
  5. Finally today i have completed the metal work. I start paint preparation next I have had enough Welding for now.
  6. Yes I was a fan of the 260z 2+2 loved them. Did you ever see what happen to the Nissan Bluebirds?
  7. at last putting back together
  8. Rust protection then after welding cavity inhibitor. If the weather is good tomorrow start putting the tops back on
  9. The whole point of this work is RUST so I have been treating all metal surfaces with a zinc phosphate pre-primer metal etcher called RustBlast before paint priming with a welding copper primer. What do you gurus out there think about this as a procedure before i commit to the return of the panels? I don't know what treatment to trust my car to.
  10. Way back before I removed the first spot weld I spent a kings ransom on buying paints and chemicals for the job not being really sure what i would find and how deep i would need to dig. This is available on eBay. I am in Vic and we have only been able to buy on line as all or retail is locked down Sika Sikaflex 527 AT White Specialist Hybrid Car Body Sealant 300ml. Automotive. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Sika-Sikaflex-527-AT-White-Specialist-Hybrid-Car-Body-Sealant-300ml-Automotive/173381054429?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 work as of yeasterday
  11. This is the same noise. I found the problem I am not sure how to explain it. check the direction of the wast gate actuator control valve. This is going to sound very stage. But what the noise was on my GTT was the wast gate actuator was opening the wastage only a little bit creating a condition where hot air was flowing past the gate like air over a whistle like a a church organ works or a steam train blowing it whistle. I kid you not. It was so loud it was defining I even went out a purchased a new turbo That I never fitted . just because I had a small valve the wrong way around.
  12. I had the same problem. it came about after i reassembled the turbo
  13. This is where its up to at the moment. still lots of cleaning to do.
  14. SR Autobodies mentions a rust prevention and converter in one of his Videos called "Rust i Sol" Anybody in Australia able to obtain this product I cannot find it. Metaflux Rust-i-Sol
