    Replaced turbo pipes earlier in the week with some cheap ones. Seem to be holding up OK.
    Took it for it's weekly drive last night. Got raced by a L plater in a honda. In a 50 zone. He would have been doing about 100, while I was maintaining a legal speed.
    Kids these days.

    Zapped

    Was working on one of my z and my mates z31. The 31 was running on 5 cylinders, so I pulled out the spark plug leads one by one, and on the fourth lead I got zapped ( what was Rambo screaming about ) the car ran a little better till I let go:rofl: do not think ill do that again.

    test fitted and screwed the stillen type 111 skirts on ..getting them ready for paint.

    they fit perfect. 5 mins for a slight trim of an edge where the doors open.

    Started the rebuild of the Block and when I pulled the pistons from the cleaning bath found 1 piston had 2 cracks at the ring lands. Lucky I have a few spare grade 2 pistons lying around.
    I will get this motor rebuilt come hell or high water, even if it takes some time.
    Ahhhhhh the delights of restoring/modifying 24 year old cars.

    Who would have thought aftermarket cup holders were a defectable part.

    Finally organised some time for 2nd attempted exhaust on my Slicktop, after finding the full Veilside Evolution was far too loud.
    New 200CPSI S/S Cats, UAS S/S Centre Muffler and Magnaflow S/S twin 3" outlet rears. Magnaflow expansion tips wouldn't clear the Stillen valance, so had to cut off and replace with some flared 3" S/S pipe extensions

    Sounds....... angry

    Still only 5mm clearance on from the valance, but solid enough to not hit. Tips will need cutting back at some stage when time permits again... maybe next year.
