  1. Although this 95 is incredibly clean and we want it to stay this way, Jim has been underneath it, scrubbing, cleaning because he bought a Rust Buster Epoxy Kit in Silver Aluminium which is not far off a factory colour and here are some pictures after application.

  2. Starting to get the nag to start on this long running project again. Most of the parts have been boxed up for over a year, and the likes of the crank which is fitted to the block along with the pistons will need dismantled again and checked over. When i last tried to get this going the crank started to bind so i stopped what i was doing to avoid risk of me screwing it up again. So this time i'm getting everything shipped down to Jimmer. The block is wrapped up in plastic but i need to get the crank checked so i'll need to dismantle everythin

  4. Got the car cover off and took the zed out for it’s first proper outing since last October, before sending the car off to the chassis shop. Been far too long and god I missed that fear when I floor it! [emoji1]. Went for a blast early morning when roads were empty, filled up with shell v power then continued. In the afternoon we headed up the motorway and back to get a good steady run for an hour. Managed to do about 70-80 miles in the end. First taste of summer today and can’t wait for the warmer and most importantly dry weather. Forgot to take pics when I was out but took a few after t

  5. Sun was out so todays the day the Z came out. First stop some of BP's finest and check on the tyre pressures. Thats when its starts as a man comes over to talk to me about the Z. Only when I am in this car does anybody talk point wave and smile at me. 🙂 Drove around aimlessly and even down the scariest road in Belfast. Half way down it the road is like an old wash board to give drivers grip on wet or in ice conditions. Its closed when snow is lying. The rocky road.

  6. The intention on arriving at Jimmer's was to get a glass out respray on this 94, take parts from the 95 LWB donor such as the keyless system and the digital a/c but things haven't planned out that way. After Jim's appraisal on the 94 and with it being damaged left side front at some point before my ownership, I ended up buying this freshly imported 1995 Slicktop non turbo from Josh Lake and it is amazingly clean throughout, still unregistered with Swansea, so this is going to become a Twin Turbo.

  7. Got round to finally subscribing and getting pictures up of the zed. Was taken before it was put into hibernation. Just sorting a few bits out to bolt onto it, cosmetic wise.

  8. UPDATE :- After a long cv19 blamed delay, I am informed my new Work wheels are in the country. This post brings things up to present day, I have chosen this shape of quad exits and slash cut, I have also stressed the length must be to my liking also, the reason for the side on trial fit pic.

  9. Today, I fitted a nice new K&N cone air filter - and replaced the previously installed Hella OEM-type horns with a pair of 350z jobbies, duly purchased from Banzai Breakers. They give out a much louder "parp" which is more in-keeping with the presence of a Zed....😁

  14. each piece was etch primed and protected as it was built up, took the guys ages, very impressed with them tbh! now time for, brake lines throughout, fuel lines, calipers rebuilds, all belts pulleys etc, full service, then MOT. I hope to have this all done within the next month or so, fingers crossed! then the non-mot bits can start but will take my time with those, rear arches, interior refurb, paint, spoiler removal (it’s rotten) would like to replace with an original one but haven’t seen any about for a while. Will be joining the club for sure, gotta have that

  15. The engine has been totally rebuilt with 87.5mm Wiseco pistons with Eagle rods. Same 48P head as before, later series this is. 850cc Injectors. AMS Manifolds. Z1 Urethane Engine Mounts.

  16. I used Torque GT in Devon for my import. Gave them a spec list - including manual box, no significant mods and even colours I couldn’t stand - and they did the rest. I got an email every week with suitable cars, and just had to flag up which ones to follow up for translations. When I saw “the one” we agreed a max price to go to and the next day I got the call to say she was mine! All scanning of auction sites, bidding and shipping paperwork taken care of. And I have a rust-free car which has been under sealed and converted to UK. Easiest purchase I ever made, and way better than some of t

  19. It was the first decent, mild and dry day of the year - so I thought, why not take the Zed out for a spin. Did anyone else think the same.....? I covered about 50 miles across the Chilterns - so technically still local (and I did combine it with the supermarket run) - nice A-roads, a blast on the M40 and some traffic-free B-road action. I wasn't the only modern classic car owner out and about either. I saw some nice 80s and 90s machinery on my travels - so it seems a few others had the same idea! From a couple of '90s Porsche 911s, a 944, a very smart R129 Merc SL500, a Lotus Esprit and a

  22. Hopefully there’s enough meat left on them to give them another machining session, but I’d personally much rather use a well recommended head specialist to overhaul the ones you have rather than take a punt on an eBay item. The 48p heads are supposed to be an improved design over the 40p so you may aswell take advantage of that if you can and finding used 48p heads will be a challenge! I’m with Nick, £500 for a fit and forget top end is a decent price on the grand scheme of things!

  27. Not necessarily, depends on the build history of the car. The part# in the photo shows 23710-48P76. This comes up as an ECU for a JDM 1993/09 - 1994/10 TT Auto. http://www.jp-carparts.com/nissan/part_detail.php?maker=nissan&type=132&cartype=14&fig=226&part=2371048P76&page=1&img=226A 001 If you take the upper lid off the ECU (4 screws) you can see if the EPROM is soldered into the PCB which would indicate the factory EPROM (and MAP) is still in place. If the EPROM is socketed (ie removable) it would indicate an aftermarket EPROM (and MAP) is likely to

  33. Can't take either of mine out at the moment as they are both broken (no brakes and no electrikkery) So after unloading the red one and parking it up: It really really needed a clean to get the salt and mud and road grime off it. This was from one days use when we had all that snow, then I couldn't wash it for 6 days because the hose pipe froze. That was 03:15 on the way to work! I spent 4 hours in the rain washing and rinsing it to make sure there was no salt left anywhere, jacked it up to do underneath and everything. Neighbours thought I was mad! As you

  35. I had the same idea today funnily enough as no rain forecasted and I hadn't seen road grit in a while down my end, but ended up detailing the daily as it's recently come back from the bodyshop. Didn't have the energy after that absolute mission of a job, to then have to clean the Zed after a drive, before putting it away under the car cover. Will probs take it out tomorrow though as it's forecast to be dry also 😃. Times like this make me look forward to the leaky targa seals replacement, as then I wouldn't have to worry about leaving it out in the rain! Looking forward to tomorrows drive so mu

  41. At the moment, the Zed is sat on my driveway under a made to measure cover. Not too happy with keeping it on the driveway under a cover. My garage is just about too short to fit the Zed in, not to mention filled with shelving and stuff. Going to relocate my garage to another side of the garden as it's a pre-fab one so is bolted together, and plan is to build an enclosed car port. I can then detail my cars in peace, not having to fight the weather! And also I can then store the Zed over winter in there, with some power routed too, to keep it on a trickle charge. Hopefully get this done wh

  42. You can replace the drivers side foam parts with the corresponding parts from the passenger side which usually don't suffer from wear. A good trimmer can do that for you without difficulty using a s/h donor seat.
