Dee Posted February 5, 2011 Report Share Posted February 5, 2011 Just wanted to introduce myself to the Ratsun family, my name is Dee. I've owned many different types of cars over the 15 or so years I've been driving, ranging from Turbo & Nitrous 5.0 Mustangs to Cadillac Eldorados but my heart has always been set on getting a Z. So here I am I just picked up my first Z last night -- It's a 1978 280Z; got for 2k probably not the best deal but anyway besides the horrible orange peel paintjob it in decent shape for the most part just has a few small rust spots the biggest being on the driver side framerail near the back of the car it's about a 4 1/2 inch spread of corrosion but the hatch area, rocker area & roof top are pretty much rust free. I don't have any pictures at the moment but I do have a poor quality video until I get my camera back from Canon. My mod process for this car is in this order: 1. Fix the little odd and end stuff like RPM gauge not working, dash lights burnt out, etc. 2. Cure the 4 1/2 inch of frame rail rust and anywhere else I may have missed. 3. Bushings, Suspension, Rim/tire package(looking at konig rewinds or an authentic set of watanabes rs8's) 4. Read, Read and more Reading. 5. Get started on building up a spare L28ET. Oh and before I forget my last car was a 1990 Nissan 240sx with a blacktop SR20det swap, here are some pictures of that: Quote Link to comment
