OK engine out so is the gearbox and all other part in engine bay other than rack and cross member ,and for those of you wondering what the strange pipes are in engine bay the white one and the copper one they were put in as fuel pipe from tank one was there going to fuel pump but the pump didn't run once engine was started so i put the white pipe in as a temporary supply to the mechanical pump to get the engine running.

This car was absolutely in need of somebody tearing it all apart and starting it again. Lots of wasted and misplaced effort by the previous owner me thinks!

Keep it coming Derrick!

Got to be as you can also see the same colour in the engine bay under the removed rubber gromets

Not seen that colour on a 260Z before.

Don't you remember that 260Z 2-seater that the Honda breakers R-Motion were breaking on eBay (there are still a few bits left on there now)? That was yellow.

Well there might not be some comments for a while then whilst you scrape!

My overall opinion is that it has the potential to be a great car.
