    Have been working on the car a ton the last two days. Painting a bunch of parts of the car with POR15, removing the bumpers, installing my ZCC tow hooks, etc.

    I'm currently doing a FairladyZ/240Z front end conversion, so I'm collecting the parts to get that done.

    Here are some photos:

    This stock lower valance is going away. I will be getting a MSA Type 1 lip very soon Click here to enlarge:

    Very much unfinished back here. Got the tow hook spot POR'ed, need to drill out the spot welds on the above bumper lip and remove that. Need to drop the gas tank to remove the bumper shocks, and then have the rear painted!

    Click here to enlarge

    I know... it needs about a 6" drop.

    Very common rust spot on these cars. I just POR'ed it with two coats. This will be painted over, so don't worry about the brush strokes/messy edges Click here to enlarge.

    The SCCA legal tow hook for the front. ZCC put the stickers on upside down for some reason.

    It will look like this when it's "done".

    This is what the Japanese version of my car (1977) came with as far as lights/bumpers. I will run bumperless for a while, eventually doing 240Z bumpers in carbon fiber. The turn signals pictured in this video are in the mail. I'll have the same front lip too:

    No worries! Cool, I've seen the Eibachs they look like a good option. There is a new Coilover kit that just came out that I'll probably end up picking up. CNCed strut tubes, plus built in camber plates, 32-way adjustable dampeners. Pretty awesome setup:

    Got the front coilovers installed, still need to do the rears. Got a rebuilt head for it, new head bolts, and HG. Replaced the tie rod ends and ball joints, POR-ed most of the driver's side floor. Still got a bunch of stuff to do. I got a new set of wheels, and I'll post up picks once they're on. They're currently at my tire shop waiting to get mounted/balanced.
