This is clean and ready for touchup paint:


This is not (yet):


This also is not (yet):

Did it change color? Wasn't it yellow before?

The color is a good color for auch a car. What else would people rather have? For an old Z yellow is perfect - I think white might be my other choice but that's about it.

The original engine going back in is understandable too I mean it's not a piece of shit or anything just a bit on the small side.

With exhaust and other minor improvements how much power do you expect this motor to be making? Also how much does that Z weigh, do you know?

It was making 123RWHP before, I'm going to guess it's going to make 140hp.

Yeah, my phone is a pile of shit (Samsung Trance), and I was washing everything out with halogens owing to the lack of a flash.

Power? Not much of a bump. Hell, it was 120HP on a dyno(queen)com, so I'd be pleased as punch with 120HP on a good dynojet. I'm doing the exhaust because the old one was rotted out, and I got a good deal on bends and header. This also opens up the road to a big cam and triple weber carbs.

Weight? 2200lbs with fuel and fluids.

I bit the bullet this weekend and started pulling all the hard lines, wiring, and components from the engine bay (in order to get the best results when painting it).

Passenger side is done, except for pulling the wiring harness (which is now totally disconnected from the engine bay).

Driver side is well started - no more windshield washer reservoir, no more brake master cylinder, no more vapor return, no more ignition. Left to do are the brake booster, clutch master cylinder, proportioning valve, steering shaft, and various and sundry hard lines.


Just a bit of BFH work to do on some residual body damage up in the corner (where the car got bent):

Just some creases in the paint. Nothing structural.

if it isn't visible from outside the car and isn't important to the structure of the car I doubt the body guys would bother

It's not visible from the engine bay either, once the fresh air channels are put back in.

Continued disassembly in the engine bay. No more front brake hard lines, no more clutch hard line, no more clutch booster, no more brake proportioning valve, no more DS fender, no more DS headlight bucket, no more cowl or wings:






Shitty images, I'll get better ones later this week, when I remember to take a decent camera, lol.

Got the speedometer cable out


The location of all my corrosion worries:


RH fender and headlight bucket removed:


Battery tray removed (drilled out the spot welds):


The result of pre-submersion paint technologies (spots where the paint sprayer couldn't get):






I haven't decided on replacing the battery tray yet. I've used absorbed glass mat batteries (Optima brand, sealed, no offgassing) for years now, and I may relocate it inside the cabin, probably in one of my weed compartments (under the carpet, behind the seats). If I do relocate, I'll just repair the metal where I drilled the welds out and paint over it, and keep the battery tray for someday when I want to put it back to stock.

considering the age of the car, the rust on the battery tray isn't anywhere near being a problem. I have newer vehicles that have more rust than that on/around the battery tray.
