  1. That is where I was leaning with wide drafts and the exhaust right there as well. Also I was leaning towards a nylon carbon filament supposedly good up to about 200* F
  2. Anyone look at creating intake manifold to run ITBs? Via 3d printing versus making from metal?
  3. The Tachometer has been working amazing! I also made some shift knobs, and a new instagram emblem! https://www.instagram.com/p/CUyNe-kPQGs/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  4. Dude well done. I felt like my 510 was a project, yours is on a whole nother level.
  5. Got my shift knob ready for the car show at the end of next week. It isn't perfect but I am pretty proud.
  6. Here I what that looks like in real life, definitely not perfect
  7. My shift knob is all sorts of messed up. So I decided to make my own. I have done a couple test prints. I will do a full test print later today.
  8. That is what I was thinking about doing I have been toying with the idea of exporting the sides as .DXF files and using a laser to cut out some wood. I haven't decided whether it makes sense to cover it for Vinyl or just paint it. I was leaning towards vinyl. Realistically I realized I was trying to get too much done considering I have the Williams car show in a few weeks, and I want to just ensure the car is drivable. I really like the idea of just making the corner/side pieces thank you for that advice.
  9. I will be there with the Wife's Figaro and my 510 (last time I brought my 280z).
  10. Just stumbled across this post, dude it looks really cool. Well done!
  11. Holy Cow it has been a while since I posted in my build thread I have largely abandoned this format and have moved over to Youtube. I just uploaded Episode #80 it goes live next Saturday, if you haven't subscribed on YouTube, please consider it would help me out a bunch. Here is what I have finished since the beginning of the year. - Finished front Rust Repairs (these 4 words do NOT do justice to all the work that has been done) - Swapped in Front T3 Coil Overs - Swapped in Seats (If I hadn't already done that) - Rebuilt the Transmission (There was nothing wrong I am an idiot) - Repaired the Rust on the rear Panel - Made a new exhaust - Painted the rear Fenders - Made a spare tire cover - Got new Tires - Fixed my brakes after I forgot a cotter pin when I first put them together :/ - Swapped in a 240Z steering wheel - Modeled and 3d Printed my own tachometer (really proud of that one) Check out the sweet sweet Tachometer!
  12. I am not liking how the center console is working out. my settings or 3d printer aren't doing a good job and I am getting warping. In other news I am still plugging away on my Tachometer design I got it fully in the car today.
  13. Been still chugging away on 510 small projects now that the large projects are done. Check out the latest 3d model. It is a printable center console, looking at the print time and the amount of chopping I had to do, I would suggest building the thing out of something else, maybe light MDF then covering with vinyl? Who knows, what I know if I can "build" this on the printer while I am at work making money...
  14. Also I am super stoked to see that someone else printed something I made. It is a cool feeling.
