Re: GRS30-000883

S30 2+2's can look absolutely awesome... good set of feet, air dam, and if you like them flares and near perfection.

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

Ok, been a bit quiet... Brake top hats due this week! :) Hatch test fitted but ended chipping the roof. I could not quite hold everything when aligining it on my own. Nothing a small blob of blue paint wont fix. :P Started cleaning the gearbox. Its new, but got weathered... a few more hours elbow gr...

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

If you look at the picture in the post on 29th Nov 2018, you can see the two top holes were welded up, as not much room with this diff cover on the 280zx.

The AN fitted to the side is for oil return if a diff cooler/pump is used or a breather...

I could try and find out where my flywheel was made, it suits a 5.5" Tilton triple plate race clutch with Tilton hydraulic realease bearing.

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

I was going to have a crush tube in it, but decided to use some bushes i had on the shelf that fitted, but no crush tube.
Will keep an eye out for possible replacements, as the size i used apparently is very common.
They were some 4x4 Nolathane bushes...

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

Got some rubber sections from Para Rubber to seal around the fuel cell... came out good. Also got a red spray bomb to touch up the Steel Box and it was a perfect colour match... surprised. :) Made a couple of 50x3mm Aluminium restraining straps, will look at options now to seal up the dry break valv...

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

Picked up new diff mount today. Machined from a block of Aluminium by Stainless Machining in Penrose. Very good and fast service. I was going to get it anodised but to eager to get it fitted.

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

Picked up the rear shock lower bushes, and the diff mount & machined washers today. Shock bushes fitted perfectly. Rear mount is getting re-made as they machined the main hole 4.5mm incorrectly... :( Not my cost, but besides that they made a fantastic job. Bushes & washers. http://i67.tinypic.com/s2...

Re: Datsun 280ZX IMSA GTU replica race car build...

A few small jobs done. I pulled the pedal box out again to centre the balance bar. I did notice my front master cyclinder is 1", and rear 7/8". These were sized for the original 6pot/4pot wilwood calipers. I think the 1" may be a bit big for the AP Racing 6pot... will send an email to Wilwood and Ra...
