    From what I understand. Powder coating is this.

    The item you want to powdercoat is celaned off to bare metal, then heated to a hot temperature.

    Then the coating which is some sort of plastic powder is applied and melts on to the surface to form a paint like coating.

    Thats about all i know on the subject, so maybe some powdercoaters could chime in.

    You mention bad luck with Tabco, I have had very good service from a company called mill supply for steel body panels.

    Default Lead Soldering

    Question: If you are using lead soldering (excellent videos BTW), can you use the lead as a bonding agent as well? For example, I have a dent in nearly the exact corner as you've repaired in the photo (driverside rear). If I found a piece of panel, could I use the lead to "weld" in the piece instead of actually welding it then leading it? It looked as if that was what you did with the gas filler lid, or am I mistaken?

    He welded the gas lid, only used lead to smooth the area over.

    Lead is very soft by metal standards and would have hardly any strength to hold parts together. Epoxy would probably be stronger than lead, but getting it welded is the best thing to do.

    First off, thanks for all the positive feedback - all of you! : )

    The dash is currently on hold - chassis is still number one priority. The center
    console will get it's modifications once I have the dash. Right now pretty much
    everything is put on hold I'm sorry to say. People helping me are busy, etc.

    At the end of july/middle of august the car will get its rear custom flares and
    it'll also be shipped off to have a custom 12 (or more) point roll cage fitted.

    All in due time ...

    That pedal box is AWESOME!

    Are they going to have to come forward at all to allow full depression without hitting the bulkhead, or is that going to be enough room?

    Regardless they look GREAT.

    I think you should mount them where they are in the pic. You could do heel-to-heel shifting! Heh, heh! What is the ratio of this pedal assy. Looks like it may be 5:1 or more?

    Thanks! : )

    The problem is not the pedals hitting the firewall, but the cylinders.

    Hopefully it'll fit.

    Mull, I've been following your project for a year or so, and, to tell you the truth, every time I watch the videos I have to pick up my jaw from the floor... I just can't imagine myself doing all that, the body looked impossible to be repaired. I'm restoring my Z now, but rust in my car is NOTHING compared to your Z. It almost looked as if it was a machinegun target or something. I'm just glad that there are so many Z's in Sweden, here in Poland there are around 4 or 5 - and it has twice the population of Texas. I'm going to Sweden during the next year's vacations, can I drop by just to touch the car? Please!

    That's "just" a original crank (balanced) - the bolts are JUN though : )

    I figured stock would cut it since its known to handle up to 1200 horsepower.

    Oh, you forgot the ACL race series bearings

    did you get the engine bored over, or was it just honed? (It appeared bored to me).

    Flare suggestion from my metal handyman Viktor of www.darensteel.com

    They're about 60 mm per side - about 2.5 inches. I'll test fit these and see
    if I want to go wider or if it'll do. Switching to a Skyline or 240sx/200sx rear
    end is going to add about 40-50 mm per side.

    the hole's for a carbon fibre roof yeah? or are you going to go for a transparent material? has the bit you've cut out held its shape, in terms of getting the curvature correct to mold off?

    either way its looking nice

    I now have two choices of flares available. Approx. 60mm and 100mm.

    Something like that... : )

    The mold won't be made from my roof, but that of another Z.

    I'm pretty confident the bigger ones will turn out nice.

    Darensteel.com made these flares for a R33 Skyline. Looked pretty absurd when in place.
    Bulky as hell, if you would've asked me back then.


    But once painted, etc - it's totally svung around. Looks sweet!

    As long as you don't use those wheels, I don't care which flares you use!

    It is coming along very, very nicely. Keep it up!

    Default Awsome Videos

    Mull, I just registered this website simply to talk to you. Someone linked me to these videos, and I just finished watching them all. Let me say, your work is very inspiring and fun to watch, and it makes me happy to see so much work go into a Z. Your car would have been scrapped without a second thought here in the US, due to all that rust, but you didn't really have the option to get another one. Kudos for sticking with that seemingly impossible task.

    I see you still have a long ways to go on the car, but there's no turning back now. I wish you much luck and prosperity on getting your car finished, and I anxiously await updates and pictures. You will definitely have one of the nicest 240Z's on the planet. LaterZ.

    This thread has been sleeping for way too long, if you ask me.
    That's what two mighty brave souls thought too. This is why
    they've volunteered to get the project up and running once
    again. Meet (and praise) Huddinge Kustoms.

    Time to mount the rear suspension, seats, pedals, seatbelts
    and so on in their respective place.

    It's been a long time coming - but here it is - part 18 : )

    Enjoy!


    PICS


    Big whee... No weels keep on rollin'!


    The Skyline suspension put in place. Kind of anyway. Andreas to the right.


    Henrik drilling out some spot welds.


    Very nice.


    Rear suspension is gossiping with the spare wheel tub. It's for sale.


    Rear rails gone. More chopping up to be done...


    Aluminium bushings for the rear suspension.


    Always good to have some mounts as well...

    I sure hope you've got eliminators for that rear suspension's Super Hicas 4 wheel steering system...

    I'm pretty much overwhelmed right now. I used to apply a saying, by a wise swedish childrens comicbook
    turtle - Skalman, to this build. The saying (roughly translated) is: Hurry slowly. When Huddinge Kustoms
    took the reins, they kicked Skalmans saying right off the wagon and put rockets on it. So uh... How many
    days did it take to construct, build and finish the R32 Skyline IRS-swap? Answer: 2 days. Sure sure, there
    are some welds still to be done - but I'm *bleep* blown away by the progress made in the last few days.

    In fact, my brain is starting to melt down - so here are some (23) pictures of todays progress!

    Oh, one more thing: mull Huddinge Kustoms



    Like I said, chopping up - not yet finished.



    Mr Andreas - aka. chop-meister aka. Rear-IRS-master: D



    See where the massage has been placed?


    Some muscle-breakage occurred (not to much surprise) thus, Hugo needing some attention.



    And grinding.



    Sore muscles fixed up : )



    Chop chop. Bloody rust! Death, rust and taxes, I tell you.



    Some L-profiles welded in place to hold the measuring device.



    This is what all tape measures dream of being reincarnated as : )

    After measuring, Andreas started cutting up some square tubing.



    ...in order to have something to mount the front mounts to.



    No holes = no mounting = break out the drill!



    Chop chop!



    Stepping it up a notch further. Tubing inside the square piping.



    Weld.

    Welding inside - who needs Intel? : )



    And in a flash, all mounts were done!



    No words needed. I'll do some cheering instead! WOop woop! : D



    Pretty tight fit : )



    Some flares might be needed - the tires are 185 wide : P



    Andreas is pretty pleased with the progress as well : )


    Like I said, very very pleased Andreas - My smile is twice as wide : )))



    And this is what it looks like from the side. More to come...!

    Even after this monster (spoiler) update, there's a new video coming
    sometime in the near future. I just have to try to make room for the
    video on my harddrive : )

    Woop woop! : )

    Does the R32 have rear steer? I can see the tie rod in the pic. Will this be functional or will it have a permanent set?

    Yes, it has "rear steer" aka. Hicas. It will be locked up and not used : )


    And here's a little something else:
    Pretty much everything is now in place. Have my sights on a pair of
    300zx aluminium spindles, complete with brakes, rotors and 5-lug hubs.

    Last pic is just testing what a 265 wide tire would look like.


    Henrik och Andreas - aka Huddinge Kustoms : )






    Negative camber for teh win. Shocks aren't in proper place, cut spring, no hicas. It's a mess : )



    /me is very satisfied with the progress.



    The shifter seems to have gone astray though : (



    Back to the boring garage...



    Hugo's trying on some new shoes.

    I am sure everyone would agree that watching your clips is amazing. My only complaint is being impatient for the next one. I am also in the middle of a restoration and it can be frustrating how many things come up to slow the project down. I can hardly wait for you to finish so we can see what the car is going to look like! Keep up the good work and as always: post more movies!!!

    I forgot. In the picture above with you sitting in the car with your hand in the transmission tunnel, do you find yourself making vroom vroom noises? At this time the only noises my car makes are the ones coming out of my mouth.

    I noticed the body line where you shaved the fuel door is a little off. Are you going to address that, or do you care.

    Here's a set of 18" loaner wheels taking a spin to check clearance. Car isn't at its lowest
    since the wheels are an inch or so outside of the fender lips, meaning cutting will be next.

    Madness! It's 14" : )




    Chop chop...


    Going offroad? Suspension isn't hooked up...


    This is what rust free fender lips look like. Promise.


    Torment.


    Would you believe it? The other side was rust free too!


    Close look. No rust as far as the eye can see.


    Worn out disc making me use manual shear for the last cuts. Yay.


    And presto, enough room to fit 20" or drop it another 2 inches, but that would mess the IRS geometry up. Hmm. Anyone know if there are drop spindles for Skyline/200sx/240sx/300zx? : )


    Design and placement of the flares yet to be determined. Think I put it a bit too high on this pic. I was tired

    It's not my style that fenders..they are to big! I love the rims but make the fenders around it a bit smaller. I think it messes up the cars detail.

    But nice work again Mull!

    I showed some of your project pictures from welding on my dutch vauxhall forum. People wheren't satisfied about your welds? I think they are nuts or something. But I and many here know your doing a great job.

    I love to see the finished product, can't wait to finish mine!
    I'm going for 15 inch american racing vector rims, with a not to fat tire.

    Some welds are crap, most are good - some are great.

    What welds did they think sucked?

    Naah.. they don't liked the project at all.
    The had something about the floor boards, the the beem "under" the boards isn't supporting the structure enough. And that you have to make patterns in the floor boards to make them stronger.

    There just jealous i think. But don't care about that Mull.

    Tjek out my project 240z if you like.

    The floor pans would be stronger if they had grooves in them. But I couldn't
    find a bead roller with a deep enough throat, so it will be compensated by
    adding beams inside the car. I don't mind critique : )

    Not much has happened since last. I got hold of some GTR wheels that
    I'm trying out for size. They're 16" - tires are 225/45. Good fit. More back
    space for a wider rim - approx 15-20 mm - and the flares are now being
    redesigned by the same metal worker that did the "too wide" version and
    the slimmer ones that are shown in this pic:

    Ya know, Bart and Mull are quite the artists. Dedicated, intense, imaginative and daring. They know what they want and dedicate their resources to that end. Their Zs will be brilliant in both execution, appearance and performance. It would be our pleasure to see them in person some day.

    You fellas rock!
