    When the manifold gasket was replaced before the manifolds were bolted together and then to the head, they weren't lined up because you can feel a difference in the level of the manifolds. The mechanic had dropped off with his machinist, it's been welded and surfaced. The exhaust manifold will be surfaced as well. afracer, it is a '78 California model so I can't do much of anything without being failed for smog visual inspection.

    Haven't done much picture taking, most of what's being does is while I'm at work.

    FutoFab 5/8" rear sway bar. The rear shocks have been replaced at one time, couldn't find manufacture markings. New KYB Excel-G shocks going in.

    Brakes are on with new stainless steel lines from Techno Toy Tuning. A cheap buy from eBay.

    The sway bar does come with endlinks but the T3 GTX2 control arm has a endlink with a hiem joint and bushings.

    The new front suspension parts are 510 pieces. Techno Toy uses Koni short stroke adjustable race units on their 280ZX coilover conversions, I'm sticking with the stock strut casings. As for pictures I'll do what I can since I go to the mechanic after work to help so stuff may already be done while I'm working.

    I've got a 510 sway bar from FutoFab on the way and will get a rear sway bar later on. Took the struts apart and pulled the 40 year old ones, will get some KYB Excel-G cartridges.

    Starting to tear apart the front suspension and replacing stuff with Techno Toy Tuning parts. Removing a number of parts to clean and paint, hoping to get done before Datsloco.
