Time for a new look…

So it has a been while since I have posted here, what with life getting in the way and all that. I feel it is time to get back to posting about one of my biggest passions in life this year…πŸ˜€ So with all the new things happening I felt it was time to change the look of the site as well as my daily driver PA10 you see below. Let me know what you think?

I have been in the process of restoring my 1979 PA10 1600J since January of this year, which is almost complete now. What was meant to be a simple conversion to EFI has turned into a complete respray, completely rebuilt and modified L16 motor, new suspension bits including poly bushes, new tyres and new rubber seals all round. Crazy how these things snowball out of control so quickly… But can’t wait to get her finished and back on the road!

I will be doing a few posts on the restoration, particularly the engine build, which in itself has been quite the project!

I also am planning on starting a store type setup for parts that I am going to be selling, so keep your eyes open for that one too!

Here’s to the future!πŸ˜€

My new 280ZX…

So, I recently purchased a 1980 Fairlady 280ZX 2+2 a few months ago for the princely sum of R8500 (~$800) and have been enjoying her on the weekends. It needs some work to look decent, with some rot on the RHS fender behind the wheel, some hail damage on the bonnet, a damaged RHS headlight bucket, some scratches on the paint, a slightly damaged interior and a cracked LHS T-Top glass section.

Can’t really complain for the price I paid for her, as she is a driving car with no mechanical faults at this stage.:)

My plan is to sort out the fender and headlight bucket, then sand her down and give her some fresh black paint to look slick again! Then a nice set of 15 inch rims and tyres and a slight drop to round out the looks department, maybe even put a lip spoiler on the back as well.

Then the interior needs to be sorted out and a new T-top section put in once I find one in decent condition for a decent price.

Random Pic…

I am struggling to get round to doing a lot of new posts here and it is starting to really frustrate me… So for now, here is a photo I took yesterday of a friend of mine’s IMSA 260Z replica at the race track… Love this car to bits!
