    hello aus300zx,

    I have been so excited to finally post up my ride on here. A mate of mine had a 300zx that he had given up on and wanted to get rid of it. I couldnt resist putting down and offer, the next day I had a tow truck organised and it was dropped off wednesday night to my place.

    It needs a bit of work
    Battery is dead
    Fuel pump gone
    A few interior trims are missing
    Boot carpet is worn
    A few dents on the car
    Engine bay filthy


    The good points
    A straight body overall
    2.5 inch twin exhaust system
    Lowered suspension
    16" bbs 5 spoke 3 piece wheels

    I had to go interstate for a week the day after I got the car so i am very excited to work on it again next week

    Thanks for helping with the photos, its super hard to upload them on my phone

    Thanks for the compliment, to be honest I would love to clean it up and keep it as a weekend car/project

    I may swap in a manual conversion and another motor one day. I would love putting in a Nissan vh45 v8 into it or consider a twin turbo motor into it.

    Cool! :) What are the short term plans for the car? Any specific things you're keen to replace/upgrade?

    Short term plans I would love to clean up the interior and get the body nice and straight.

    I am not so sure if I am keen on the wheels, i strongly believe they need to be bigger and with more dish.

    I will get a bigger front anti sway bar and replace the broken front lip too.

    It will be much easier once the car is running, i can move the car out of the garage much easier.

    Thanks mate, if i can go from previous experience it will get the full treatment.

    I am still new to z32 is it possible someone may be able to link me to the thread showing the differences between a 2+0 and a 2+2.
