Awesome to hear the Shaftmasters product is good, I just received mine!
Much respect, that's so factory-fresh looking mate
Cheers @MickW , to be fair that photo was taken directly after a wash. Thankfully there are plenty of decent examples on this forum, it's nice to see them all!
* S1 front bar with the manta ray slits are distinctive these days when nearly every modern NA car ( not just Zeds ) has fake SMIC openings I retained mine to keep it looking factory standard but I've altered the air ducting to serve the new SMIC's.
* Clear side indicators, defs. Those orange ones were eye rape.
* 2K rear lights? They look great against most Zed colors but not so much on a silver car with the OEM silver rims.
Call me weird ( I am ) but I bought a set of 2K tail lights 10 years ago because I couldn't find new OEM S1 tails.
I held them up behind the car and thought yeah, nar. Too much silver. They're still in the original packaging.
I've thought about asking for swapsies on a VERY pristine set of S1 tails. I honestly prefer the look of the S1 tails on a silver Zed. And again, they're distinctive because most modern cars are rocking silver tail light rigs these days.
* 2K headlights? Someone is probably working on an LED version. I'll wait...
Nice rims, baby's got dish
Oh, if you insist...
Nice, very nice @MickW
Thanks mate. The Goldfields 2010 pics were taken by forum member R31 Gagz
He never owned a Zed, poor fellow. Just a lowly R32 Skyline worked to the bejeebz.
But we let him hang around us elites because golly gosh he's a good pic taker.
Isn't that right @RENZED ?
Check out Craig's incredible pics from the 2015 Great Ocean Road cruise -
I have very few pics of the outside mate, here's some upskirt pics though
Around 2010, having a shift kit fitted by ATS Automatics -
Still rocking the original but patched up exhaust back then. ( it is long gone now ) -
Transmission oil pan removed, ready to remove the valve body and fit the shift kit -
Hah, I've got hundreds of pics of the rebuild but very few pics of the whole car.
I'm ready already!
Nice, we do love a big fat ass And mate you should apply for a job in the Forum's firing squad -
Haha, where do I sign up!?
Not bored at all mate, and I remember when you first posted pics of your car years ago.
The color is distinctive and frankly awesome. But how did you get that color onto the mudflaps? I have to know. All of us OEM diehards need to know
Thanks for the complement on the colour...
A friend of mine is a spray painter ( Hot Rods primarily ) used , if i remember correctly a PPG "flexible" Paint system ?? to colour match the mud flaps.. He also did the timing belt covers and rocker covers.
The best examples come out at Z fests, some 'absolutely' beautiful Zds come out of hiding
I can think of some Zs that will most likely be worth BIG dollars now.
Colour coded mud flaps give a Z a nice sleek look!!
Easy to do.
I have half a mind to get mine done.
I'd hold off on that for the moment Harts. What looks good on one Zed may not work on another.
The OP woofer's Zed is a bit unique due to the color, same color muddies seem to just work with that duco.
Your car's greatest appeal is it's factory fresh look. ( other than the twin Howitzers at the back )
But I'm still interested in a treatment for the rubber mudflaps to restore their blackedness, not that yours seem to need any help. They look pretty good in your pics.
Mate I was trolling your resto-mod thread, this pic made me giggle ( yeah, perspective and all that... ) but I thought -
HONEY I SHRUNK THE BONNET!
I can't un-see the small bonnet now @MickW
Roger that, sorry...
And many apologies to woofa for us de-railing his thread, I'm probably the main culprit.
PS, I'm using the same SMIC's as you. The ducting kit that came with them? Yeah, nar.
