Such an improvement! Should've got around to it before now considering how long I've had the bits!

Plus, new daily...
both great cars.

I'll try and post a pic of mine in its current state tomorrow, feeling a bit left out as a lot have put pics up of what they've done.

Rob, Steve or any other moderator... any chance you could change the title of the thread to :
"What did you do to your Z this week?"?
No need to exclude all the other Zs. Sorry other Zs.

A really decent young guy who has good connections and is going to make the car A1. He is not going to modify it. He contacted me about buying such a car at least 9 months ago.

Hauled the Z up to Abingdon for a sprint on the 2 mile circuit. Watched my daughters drive it with a mixture of pride and jealousy. Then hauled it home again. I did put it on the trailer and back into the garage so did drive it sort of

Diagnosed a misfire on the silver car which turned out to be the suppressor attached to the coil.

Replaced the fuel line on the blue car as the gearbox is out. I used a bigger braided nylon line with AN fittings both ends to connect straight to the pump outlet and fuel rail. Should flow enough for the extra power I'm aiming for.
