Without, I've probably spent about $1k in materials.

I get my bondo for free, son.

The base coat color (Nissan AJ4) costs $70/quart. With accompanying reducer and activator, it comes out to around $500/gallon. I've purchased a gallon and a half thus far. Clear coat is comparatively inexpensive, at around $30/gallon, but it takes no reducer and I've needed 3 gallons of it, and the accompanying 3 pints of its activator.

Took the Z32 out to the Aki Matsuri last weekend. It is insured, registered, smogged, and legal.

A Z32 with the hood up? What's rarer is seeing one with the hood down, lol.


Around 2PM (we showed at 10), the 240SX guys decided to wake up...

The Downs kid that looks like Ghetto (on the left) kept asking me nonsensical questions about my Zs, I wondered if it actually was Ghettoraid.

Nah, not interested at all.

Your cars are sub-par, barely even stand out at whatever shitty backwater dustbowl peasant gathering you're at there.

Sorry I can't measure up to your third-hand BMW with 200 fewer horsepowers.

Did the tow company give you a 2 for 1 deal to haul those buckets to and from the car show?

In that it costs the same for a flatbed no matter how many junkers you put on it... yes.

at the V6 beef in here

Car looks sharp man. Always liked them, but knew they were an absolute bitch to work on. Helped with a turbo replacement on my buddy' 1991 Twin and swore after that I'd never buy/touch/become involved with one.

4 barrel intakes on an L engine are a downgrade for people who don't know how to tune SU carbs. 4bbl intake + smog-dog E88 head = about 140HP to the wheels, at best.

That's a "stage 3" Z, should be putting down around 320HP.

It's missing the undertray, which is a big deal for these cars, assuming no big-ass radiator.

Everything looks like it's in mostly the right place. The "condenser brokeded, $300 fix" could snowball into a shitload of pain, if you don't want to do the work yourself.

Would offer $4500.

Edit: my car, with the same mods
