A lot of filler!!

But original body looks good underneath.

Although going to replace both rear arches with new ones for ease of work.

Then rear end is coming off!!!!

Original wings and bumper are underneath.

Anyone done this to their z?

Comments?
The search function will return quiet a few results, I think the majority with a Z have replaced them with "polybush" at some point, its a bit like asking if anyone is using lead free petrol....(unless that is they are after originality and require the softer style).

But as Franky says the mechanicals are almost irrelevant, its the bodywork/unicoque that will kill you, it has a unique way of hiding nasty little suprises.

Good advice.

Polybush it is then.

But yes, body needs attention.

Links to video of today's work leaving a surprisingly good original bodywork underneath...:

Absolutely shattered. Weighing it all up, about 80-100kg at a reserved estimate in cardboard, filler, fibreglass, and some filler foam! Soooooooo much filler!!!

Time to go gym now.


Rear end looks good too.

When doing a post scroll down and you should see a box in Additional Options called Manage attachments open that and you should be able to open jpgs etc from your PC but they are size related normal pictures work but if it is enormous it will not
They will come out as an attachment at the bottom of your post
You you could make them bigger by opening the attachment when loaded click on link location and then add it into images
Probably badly explained but gist of it is there

Thanks very much guys.

The problem I am having is uploading them from my phone.

It just freezes.

I might take your advice and download tapatalk.

Maybe that will solve this issue.

Will upload video's later on after I get back from gym.


Many thanks, Antonio.


P.S..... It actually looks like a "Z" after todays work!!!!

.

Splashed out cash on a new bumper too!!!

Had to be done!!!




Gonna be one SEXY ASS ZZZZZZ.
Thanks.

I also use an iphone/ipad and have found you can only upload one picture at a time.
