Feels like autumn.

A white engine bay is a clean look but it has to be maintained, especially if it isn't the body color, looks dirty fast.

 

I've never even driven this car and I've already cleaned the engine bay three times in the last year...    :rofl:

And it's probably due for another cleaning. Not stoked about what's gonna happen when it's on the road...    ^_^  ^_^  ^_^

When I painted my car white, I had no intentions of painting my engine bay white as well, for that exact reason.

This car will not be driven too much but I'll see what happens. I enjoy cleaning so it might not be so bad.

 

Also, i ordered a t3 strut bar and the bar doesn't seem to fit into the tower pieces which is really annoying imo.

 

disappointing.

Cleaned up the block and tranny. just need to change out the inner and outer bearing. 

 

I'm not sure what tranny it is so how do i know what bearings to get?

I'm not sure but i think the behllhousing was changed? I'll have to search the part number and see what happens.

If you can't find the tranny info just pm datzenmike with the part number and I'm sure he will know something.

got my clutch on. just need to id tranny to get the correct bearings.

I need an adjustable tie rod sleeve so i ordered one hoping the thread works. the last one did not....

 

I've got my carb setup done.

 

Im moving so I'm gonna prep my engine bay this weekend and hopefully paint it as well.

 

No time to spare :(

 

also need a damn engine mount bracket for the passenger side of an l16....

i also bought the universal t3 tranny mount. hopefully it works easily.

doesn't this look like the wrong mounts? 

 

also, i think this is a 280zx 5 speed.

So im gonna buy the bearings next week for it.

 

also, i got a t3 mount since it's a longtail.

primer. gonna fill some holes tomorrow.

The bay is supposed to be ice white though. it'll look similar to this.

 

 

I think I'm gonna remove my front valence too.

It should. But I wouldn't use a lot. And I'd use high quality stuff.

Sounds good to me.

I'm using a really thin layer.

 

Bondo for what?

sold my zx.

I'm looking for a 610 or an old school four door corolla.

We'll see. 610's are so damn hard to find.

 

 

anyways. since I have money.

Two ears... That typically makes it NOT a zx but not always? And that's a 510 mount, depending on the cross member, you'll probably need to get a z isolator.
