    Made a start on swapping my amber lenses to clear

    Bit grubby inside and the shiny coating on the metal reflector is shot, prised it out for now to de-rust and zinc plate, will have to use screws to reinstate it later;)

    Luckily these screws have been well greased, so easy to dismantle from the spoiler

    cleaned up OK, going to get some stainless screws for holding the lense, so had a measure up and job on hold for now

    Fitted new rear valence and hatch slam panel. (280 appears to be different to both the 2+2 and other 2 seaters with regard to the slam panel. Replacement needed some mods to fit.)

    Then gave the backside a trial paint in my chosen colour to see if I have lost
    A) - my sense of taste
    B) - my mind

    Nope all intact :)

    Stripped the turbo side of the blue car and welded a new wastegate flange on the manifold. Didn't refit it as I may try and get it ceramic coated internally tomorrow.

    Re-discovered the Z, took her out for a very decent blast, fell in love again. Rediscovered the forum.

    Met my old American boss for lunch who brought me lovely presents in his suitcase! :D

    Now I need to find the time to replace the rubbers on the front and rear screens that both leak at the least sign of damp ;)

    Mike, they're British made by 100+, who I think may be out of business. I haven't been able to find much out about them.

    Hi Mike,
    Yes one of my own personal cars. Looks understated but far from it under the skin and very quick.
    L28ET with programmable injection, uprated turbo, brakes, steering, suspension etc
