    Hi everybody!
    Here I am on the Easter holyday…I’m tired fo working on the car…but is almost done. I hope the car will be ready soon! At least It is working, it brakes and I’ve tried it…almost 2 years since the beginning of the resto.
    At this moment there are only small details to finish like the interior, centre console and many many more other parts…some are on its way!
    Aside a broken windshield, a broken door during the assembling, it’s time to relax and make everything carefully…this is such a puzzle!!!
    The rubbers got installed and the windshield and hatch were fitted…I had to buy original rubbers…the ones from precision brand weren’t as good as they said! On the rear hatch it misses for 2cm each side, and on the front the gap was huge on the upper right.
    Tuning the hood was easy…but damn…the door latch is tricky as hell!!! It didn’t close until I discover that the inside handle and its main cable has some adjustment. I was desperate to lock the door, the driver’s side only…I hope now all works for life,,,ahahaha…

    Let’s wait for the end of the resto…meanwhile…

    This was the starting point 1 month ago, last time I worked on it

    Centre console

    Changing shop…

    The day was very cloudy and even the car is outside, the colour doesn’t shine as it should be…

    L24 on the way…


    Then we assemble the differential, fluids, bolts and substitute all the rubbers.

    Final result…but the starter will be replaced…this one is stopping once in a while…

    The electric system…now getting back to 71…I think the car is very happy…agagagag

    The seat belts…

    The vent ducts were missing when I bought the car…now they are part of the car again.

    These rubber caps were made by my father….they are better than the original…

    The splash is awesome…a great detail…

    The windshields….

    On the front…


    People that collaborated during the process…

    Windshield wipers are now working…awesome…

    Top cowl grill got installed too…

    The side lids…

    Final results…

    Tuning the hood with new stoppers..

    Hood tuning…what a hard task!!!

    Final result…

    The car is almost ready…I bet tomorrow will be just missing the interior…for sure I’ll be driving it…

    Hope you enjoy these last works on the car…

      Hi again!
      The car runs and drives very good…but I’m moving it to another shop for the last details.
      The tunings will not be deep, but will consist in verifying the electrical system with the addition of new connectors, recovering a corner on the dash, applying the centre console, tuning the front bumpers and correcting the leather parts on the back!
      The wheels will be recovered into the original charcoal colour!
      These works will make the car looks better and will make me rest fine…I’m tired of waiting…

      Let’s go to the works:

      Interior glass trim.

      Hood latch

      Almos tone hour to aplly the mirror…

      Gearbox insulator applied…

      New interiors…worked very good!!!

      Some details…

      The plate gate arrived and was apllied.

      I state the fuel rail wasn’t the correct for the 71 generation…so, I applied a correct one!

      Some more details…

      Here is the result befere went home!

      Filling up the tank…so great…

      At home…near the 510 SSS

      Hope you liked it…let’s wait 15 days to get it completely done!!!

        Hi friends,
        The Z is still on the mechanic, I think this year, 2019, will finish the resto! I hope!!!ahahahha
        The ca ris almost done, the exceptions are related to some metal work and the systems that have to be revisioned like the brake system, fuel system. The interiors need some detail attention and that’s it…sound a bit like quick things, but it’s not!
        But the car already has the MOT and left the garage for a marriage…ahahahah…
        Let’s see the photos…


        The car waiting for the original wheels…still watanabe…

        Preparing the centre caps for the Kobe Seiko wheels…

        Changing to the original shape!

        MOT…nothing to say…zero problems…

        Arriving home, 5:00 AM…and what a ride…tons of problems… hard rain, fog and tons of waterplanning…

        Waiting for the married friends…

        And the bride’s kidnaping…ahahahahah

        Hope you enjoyed the ongoings, because the end of the resto is coming! Cheers!!!
