Re: Rear end conversion, recommendations

Ask and you shall receive Mark As for the T3 R200 conversion, well, I made enquiries with Gabe and he seemed really reluctant to give me geometry and full material specs of everything in one go so I could compile the information for LVVTA Technical Design Approval. I can understand as I was essentia...

Re: Rear end conversion, recommendations

Hey Scott, to elaborate on the PM I sent you, I will be undertaking a body conversion to mount a Nissan rear subframe which will have the R200, CV axles, 5 stud hubs, etc etc into my Z. I looked in depth at the options and I've seen people continue to try to modify existing parts to customise a solu...

Sorry for the late response, been a bit busy. Thanks for the info Bernie. And yes, one of the reasons I am following up on the T3 kit is because of MCM's installation of the kit and understanding what it does consist of and how it is installed. Do you (or anyone else) have the paperwork which was su...

Hi all, Currently I am looking at Techno Toy Tuning R200 rear conversion kit as the most efficient way to upgrade the rear end and while I have a question on the LVVTA boards related to the fabrication technique of the hub carriers, I was wondering if anyone has purchased, installed and certified th...

From a price perspective, closer to the top end of the scale, but all relative. A buyer will pay what they are willing to pay. A friend took some photos out of the tradeuniquecars.com.au magazine and the prices were significantly lower, but again, condition can be a bit hit and miss. Have a look - p...

Merlin, I didn't say top quality resto :) It's a figure that I have in mind that I am comfortable with at this stage, especially as I will be doing the majority of wrenching myself. Panel and paint will be outsourced, but it's a project, so will expect the costs to be higher if I bother to total the...

I too couldn't get over the RHD vs LHD. In the end I bought the Fairlady Z rolling shell with some replacement panels for $7000 with the vision to basically do a full rotisserie resto-mod. I'm not expecting much change out of $60k to be perfectly honest. I just wanted a Z so bad after 4-5 years of t...
