    Finally got some pics with the new wheels mounted that clear calipers. I know they are 002 but they look good on the car and they clear :)

    any wheels around +10 or more don't clear the front 4 piston calipers

    what engine is that? If that is a rb motor :eek4:

    I don't like the wing, and you need to get that front end sprayed, but otherwise :bowdown:

    it was all one color, the previous owner got it made satin black on the front so it's staying that way. Impossible to properly color match that orange/peach color again haha.. getting headlight buckets and a BRE rear spoiler

    Never heard of him :dunno:

    If you know him, want to find out how much an unworked-over N42 block, LD28 crank and an unmolested P90 head would be :x:

    i think he's selling his stuff on ebay and hybridz. i wish i could get parts for my car.

    i live in hawaii and motorsport auto/black dragon wanted to charge me $30 to ship a $20 voltage regulator.

    if it is the guy i'm thinking about, he said he doesn't want to deal with parting stuff out. pick and pull only.

    Love it. The 240z was the first car I had and I can't believe yours is the same color as the one I had, the orange.

    Nice! Are you on the HybridZ board? I think I've seen that car there before in one of the wheel threads. Very nice looking. I bought a 76 280 off ebay back in August to do a RB26 swap into eventually. Gotta sell my EVO MR first though so I have money :(

    Its a Rb25Det.
    No raised rockers covers on the rear and the rocker covers are black and the plenum chamber points forward. Not across the rocker covers

    No, it isn't. It is a RB20.
