    Cool At last! she was back on the road, and now is sleeping jacked for a vacation!

    My dear firends, these are couple of pictures and videos from two angles (sorry for the very low quality) of my Z after switching the front/rear springs, the strut mount bushing failed so in the picture I have a s trut mount from a 240Z, so it is about an inch lower in at rear..

    many thanks to you for replaying me and helpin me a lot in my progress with my car.. and for who replied recently and I didn't follow up, sorry for being non-contiously following up with my post, because I had many things to do for the travel issues.

    I'll be going on vacation tonight, I'll go to London for a week, and then I'll stay for a mounth in slovakia, so I might not be able to come online too much and share with you information and participating..

    I hope that you like them.. see you soon guys..

    best wishes to all of you.

    Have a great holiday/vacation. I don't know if you have seasons at home, but in the Northern U.S., we are getting closer to winter. My 280z is in it's hangar, waiting for my weekly visit on Saturdays to fix something.

    Mohammed:
    When you get back, would you post more pictures of that front end Valance?

    That's not something I've seen and it does look nice!

    Also, are those Headlight Washer Nozzles, right at the front of the Headlight Bezel?

    same here.

    never seen that front end before but it gives it a very 'refined' look.

    i like it.

    I jsut got a half an hour free time from fooling arround here in London so I decided to come here and have a look

    glad to find those replies..

    Zbane,
    thank you bro, those rims have the taste, but I think it would be better if I paint them in gunmetal black as people in the forum allready told b4.. they need some contrasnt don't they?:s and yes, I was so happy when I got my car back on the ground, because I was very close to leave it there NON REPAIRED during the whole vacation



    TomoHawk,
    we have seasons, but u can say that it is almost only HOT/COLD only, I guess the country's temp. regulator is bad in our area


    EScanlon,
    I'm not sure if I got it right, are you talking about the air dam? I'll have to ask about it, I guess it should be for a 280Z isn't it?
    those nozzels?? I think you are laikg about the headlight cover's clips aren't ya?

    unfortunatelly I didnt take my camera with me but I'll try to manage some ok..

    mlc240z,Ramses,
    I guess that the bumper is customized, I'll ask the previous owner about it and confirm it ok..

    Enigma,
    thank you for the wishing, if I find a better camera, I'll give you a dedication with the 3rd gear scratch
    Mohamed.

    Mohamed:
    Yes I was referring to the Headlight Cover Mounting Clips, from the first pictures it was hard to discern what they were. With your new set of pictures, it became very apparent what they were. Which leads me to ask: Why don't you use the Headlight Covers?

    As far as the air dam/valance in my first questions: That is a very unique look. I don't know that I've seen it elsewhere. If you'll note, the rounded bulge where the 240 has the front quarter lights, and the rounded opening visible in the 3rd and 4th picturesl, are very distinct looks. I'm sure others have noticed that.

    Very nice overall.

    about the headlight covers, when I baught the car, I got them with the car BUT they were painted in the same color as for the car, something like kids stuff.. I didn't put them on at all! I gave them back to the old owner..

    I vaught new ones from VB, but the strange thing is that the don't fit the original clips! I need to drill new holes and that makes me fee bad.. is it enough to stick them with the adhesive they have originally? I dont want to rush with them and spoil it..

    I'll investigate about the fron air dam and let you know later, as far as I know it is the original from a 280Z..
    and thanks for the compliment about it...
    Mohamed.
