Project 530Z update:

Thanks again to the help of my Z pals, my freshly painted suspension parts began reassembly. New struts, springs, bearings and bushings for a solid ride. New brakes all around including upgraded front brakes, bigger and better to help stop the 330hp I expect to be putting down. Next up, putting back together the suspension components into front and rear assemblies to bolt back into the car.

Stay tuned...

Project 530Z update:

I took a few weeks off to visit my daughter's family in Georgia (see my FOR SALE post for some awesome Z parts I picked up along the way!) but now with the stay-at-home-edict I am back at full speed ahead on the project.

The engine bay/brake lines/fuel lines have been refurbished and the bay repainted. Ready for the new occupant. The suspension was totally removed from the car, taken apart and repainted. All new brakes, bushings, struts and springs. The front brakes have been upgraded to Z31 trubo rotors and Toyota 4 piston calipers. Ready to be bolted back onto the chassis.

Then, the drivetrain. Then the new body kit, body work and paint. 16" Rota wheels.

Stay tuned.

Oh Duuuuude!
You are never gonna sell this car.
The very first time you drive it you will self-isolate to every paved American road.
