Good pictures John. As you and Mike said it looks to be mostly there i.e. chassis work done but of course still lots to do.

You are lucky having a mate with facilities

I know it needs work but I don't see it as that much compared to most uk cars. Once all the surface rust and paint are removed and a coat of epoxy goes on it will look a hole lot better. It's booked in for this next Wednesday. Then it's sort out the rear inner arches, a few minor repairs and get on with bodywork. Can't wait to get stuck in.

Yes I agree, it's coming out to play again and I'd reproduce the colour too. I'm sure I've seen this car 'in it's day'.

I enjoyed reading the 'tales...' and learnt a bit too.

I was surprised he removed 1/3 of the weight from a 280ZX flywheel, that's about 7lbs!

So John have you got that exact same engine with the car?

I joined the Club in 95/96 and got my car in 96 so I must have seen this car, did it go to the Goodwood meet we had about that time? I'll have to find my old pics.
