Picking up the blue Z

Last Sunday we passed by the C6 road from Antipolo to Sucat to pick up the blue Z. The drive reminded me of an early San Fernando pampanga, 2 lanes surronded by greenery. Contrast to the quiet scene is a faint silhouette of Makati.

We towed the car using our portable tow rig.

The car comes with 15" ATS rims

The car off to the new home
Come with a personal SW
Welcome home now meet your 2 brothers.

The Hybrid Z Project

When the 240z first arrived at the shop, we already knew that this was going to be a though project. The rust was really bad and the smell was that of a dead cat. Cockroaches lived inside the gas tanks and the the flooring was see through :)

This afternoon decided to visit the garage to see how the car was. From a quick glance you would already notice that the car was already stripped to the shell.

The stock suspension as well was taken out and an L300 front and rear suspension assembly was used instead to prepare for the power to be handled. The advantage of this was that the L3 was thicker and tougher than the original parts. Another option was to use the F&R suspension of a skyline but seemed to invole a lot of work.

Notice the new front suspension vs the old one located at the lower left of the picture. 
 Tin work has well has already started as well to freshen up the old panels.

The empty engine bay will soon host the 1JZ vvti motor to power the rear wheels Dori Dori!

Evolution of a Lancer update

Visited the car this afternoon and for the first time in 2 years I heard the car start. Contrast to my expectations, the car was rather quiet. A proper tune is still needed to make the car run smoothly.

To help stiffen the ride, a 6 point japan made roll cage was added. The cage follows the shape of the roof line and allows all interior parts to be installed. Only downside to this is that I wouldn't be able to put down my sun shades.

 Just waiting for the side skirt clips and walboro fuel pump to improve the fuel supply. OEM mitsu 3 din gauges, safc and other electronic parts still to be installed.
