Home Built Z 'Full video build'

Hey guys,

I have not been an active member here for quite a long time, but I have owned a bunch of Turbo Nissan's over the years, including my R33 which featured in HPI magazine many years ago now. 

I was out of the game for a while doing the sensible adult thing, but now I have finally come back to what I love, cars. I know this is not technically a Skyline, so if I am no longer welcome I understand. I have always had a thing for the 240Z's, and around 12 months ago I found a very clean (and stupidly expensive) 240. 

This week I have finally been able to start work on it. I bought it as someone else's project, that they tore apart, but never got around to doing much beyond that. I saw a diamond in the rough, as it was a complete car (well all the bits are there) and it has almost zero rust. I know lots think that, but the shell is amazingly clean.
 
I have been working on another project, a '73 Porsche 911 RSR inspired build, for a while now and documenting it all in my YouTube channel. I have reached a stopping point as I am waiting for custom engine parts, so this means it is time for the Z. I first needed to replace the front wheel bearings on the 911 so I could put wheels on it and move it out of the way. I then got into doing a stocktake on my Z to see what it needed, and start formulating a plan for the build.
 
Here is the episode.

Looks like an awesome project. I think you will find there is plenty of Z car love on this forum so keep the episodes coming.

Thanks mate. There is something about the classic cars that is cool. This car, the way I plan on building it at least, will never be considered fast, but it will sound great and be that kind of classic cool.

Thanks mate.

This week I have a go at making a stud puller to do some dent repairs and I pull the engine out of the car.

This week I stripped down my P90a head to see what I am working with. I also tackled my most difficult rust repairs to date.
 

I liked the music in that one!

That has been set aside while I am waiting on all of mu custom engine parts for the US. As soon as I get them I will get back onto it and finish it up.
