    Thanks Jason, I really enjoy ‘just doing’ and thinking out ways to do things plus I’ve got Paul Henley only 100yds up the road and his standards are really high!!

    Quick update on slow progress...
    I’ve been refitting the back end of the car over the last couple of weekends but as nothing is quite standard everything has thrown up it own set of issues. The R200 diff is converted to a helical LSD, this came with the later Nissan 2x3 output flange so I’ve machined adaptors that will allow a CV conversion which will be stronger also. This lot has been a bit of a pain to fit.
    Next up was the uprights with a 200sx disc conversion and BC coil overs, more issues, the drop on the BCs has meant that hand brake cable holding arms on the calipers strike the original brake pipe brackets. A quick check on the forum and Atomman said I wasn’t the only one with this problem, which at least confirms I’ve not done something stupid!. Problem solved with a bit hammer time! In doing this I’ve now come up with perfect handbrake cable routing which from the forums always seems to be a bugbear of the 240z disc conversions.
