Beautiful car with the fender mirrors, always loved it better than the door mirrors. Have a 82 280zx myself. Looking forward to seeing the project come along.

You going to do the Z31 computer and MAF conversion?

Edit: Ignore that if you want, I just went back and saw I sort of mentioned it already.

Lol. That boat isn't worth enough to finish. Actually my wife is taking up travel nursing, so a lot of travel is in our future. All the big toys have to go, z/bike/boat.

So what`s the deal on the Z? How far along did you get and what did you find on the way?

I took the interior apart to verify the floor board rust. Took the stock bulky bumpers off. Fixed some cut wires in the engine bay and got the car started. Determined sunroof to be dook, so I got a whole other Z roof to weld in a replacement. Going to try putting in some clutch fluid and see if the drive train all goes.
