Just a little mock up, doing an experiment and coating the whole print in fiberglass resin to see if it stiffens up the print. Also makes for a smooth sandable surface for paint.

Oh crap! I ran out of crap to talk on the rest of the interweb. I saw that I had updates on Ratsun and decided to comment. Little did I know, the skibert was back with the project that I keep hearing rumors about!  Good to see you back in the game! I bet you're better funded than I am after a long time away.

Decided to go megasquirt. so while I wait, made up a mount bracket for some LS coils. Because with MS there's no reason not to go coil packs.

Bit weak since the AFRs are still all over, but had a bit of a laugh with it anyway 😂




I'm jealous of your weak burnout. 😆


And I applaud the switch to MS. When I stop moving house and get my garage back, my 510 is getting a microsquirt. Had one on my last car and LOVED it. Which ECU are you using MS2?

Going to MS seems to be a universally recommend switch from the 40 year old stuff lol. Going to be running MS2 V3.57

Have still been working on the Z


but also still doing a lot of waiting, I ordered my MS and harness in Dec which was meant to have a 4-6 week lead.... and still waiting....

I was going to leave the body just sorta ratty and run it, buuuuut... I found some rust that was worse than I thought...



and if I have to fix that I may as well do body work and paint it, even though I was trying to avoid that.

so blown apart again it gets...







Finally found where I stashed my original HKS Super that needs some clean up and fixing.



coming along so far...



Its missing the trumpet horn, but I found one for sale in japan marked as "Junk" but had the horn

so there goes 10K yen because who knows when Ill even find another one lol

Ouch, that's no fun. Hopefully the underlying structure isn't too bad, the outer skin shouldn't be too bad of a patch.
