The HZ Project

Post by shippy on Thu Oct 30, 2008 1:42 pm

Nothing real old. But its a tribute to my dad who passed few years ago.
It was my parents car and a project my old man and i were gonna do after he got out of hospital.
Unfortunately he didnt make it.
He always made sure that if he did somthing it was always done properly.
So thats how its gonna be done.

jeeze mate not good new about the z
my shell was media blasted and etch primed outside, inside and upside down. No rust mate, My old man stripped it painted it and rust proofed it when he bought it which was when i was born 24 years ago. The Tectil was still running out of it when i started driving it. Which is why i got it blasted, Instead of attempting to take it back to bare metal myself. :S

Thanks guys. Yeh barry i think hed like it.
The colour lewey is a perl white. Same as the new suzuki swifts.
looks white in the shade but stands out in the sunshine.
Subtle but classy.

The paint is so shiney that just with the flash u can see the reflection of the wall on the roof.

yeh mate so far im going black seats in marine vinyl, its the old etch type vinyl like in the early holdens. with a white piping around the edges to break it up and outline the seats. Im hoping it will give it a bit of a cartoon effect.
i guess roof lining will be black and the crash pad. Il get the seats in and go from there.

Go with a white roof lining. makes the car feel really closed in when you go dark. espesially with such a large roof area
Just my 2c

On the inside or the outside?? If the inside, go for it. If the outside, i wouldn't. Car will look awesome and very clean all the one colour with the chrome. i think a spiderweb would ruin it.

Just my 2c

um not much progress to show mate, decided on a VN lsd diff after some advice from aussie diffs at currumbin. its about the same width and doesnt need much persuasion to slide it in.
Ive mounted the larger alloy radiator in and run some wiring through from the back end to a distribution block and to the alternator and starter as im running the battery in the boot.
I need to take some pics of the sound system ive baught and put em up too






my only concern with the wiring there is the heat from the exhaust, the headers are ceramic coated but the wiring runs pretty close to the headers so i might have to cover them up in exhaust wrap or sumthing.

Good choice with the VN diff. I put one in the Tonner, along with the 5 Lt and the auto, awesome diff. cant break it and its a good ratio. i Ground all the VN mounts off it here and they only charged 150 to jig it up and weld the leaf mounts on.

With the wiring, im pretty sure there is a heat sleeve you can get for the wiring close to the headers. will look a lot better than wrapping the exhaust.
