    Default My 240K(c110) build thread

    Here are some pics of my car back from paint, a little overcast today so will get some better pics when the suns out.











    Has come up really good. Now my turn to find the missing and restore and fit the rest.

    Mate, that looks awesome, great mirror finish on the paint.
    Looks like you'll be one of the first of us to finish your K.
    Keep up the good work.

    Thats still the bonnet you sold the car to me with as well, was 3 days work but looks the goods now.

    Im not sure how keen he is to do another one he spent 255 hours on this car, gives you and idea of what i spent too.

    But now i see it finshed i know it was worth it to get it looking good.

    Just a thought! if you put 15's MAX! and lower the car to where it would look the part, wouldn't it mean that the rear would be sitting on the bump stops and the front would have had almost half of the spring cut out of it, once the rear A-frames have passed their horizontal arch they have nearly no suspension resistance in them what so ever, not much of a racecar!

    hmmmm this weekends progress.

    These rubbers are more of pain to fit then one mite think took us many hours.


    Start to refit the loom. have not found the rear loom yet but im sure its the somewhere


    Cleaned up the lights took a couple of hours, then trail fitted the Grill


    and just another random shot of the mirrors


    also prepared the front and rear bumpers for polishing.

    Dont seem like much but everythink takes time, hope to get the parts for the motor this week and get it back in maybe weekend after next.
    Hoping to get the dynamating done during this week so i can start to refit the interior over the next week or so.

    Some update pics been raining here alot so not a great deal has been done, im also looking to buy a new house so if that happens probably be no updates to after the new year.

    Front bummer polished and fitted not really to my liking(quality wise) but will do for now


    Rear bummer polished and rear light surround cleaned up and fitted

    Dyna mat is for noise and heat, heat being the main reason i did it.

    Its been raining in sydney near none stop for the 2-3weeks so time to do things when i only have a single garage has been short.

    Having said that i have got all the parts here now to clean up the engine and put it in, just need to find a gearbox and pedal box.

    Also trail fitted seats so could work out how the new carpet went in.

    heaps of room in the back with no front seats lol


    first time i have every sat in the front seat of this car.



    And i have done these but im still missing the weather strips on the front doors. i really need to find these as i plan on having all the metal work repaired to new once i have the last two pieces and will take the company 6-8weeks to do.

    Don't you love Sydney weather!

    Just out of curiosity, what Company will you use to fix the s/s trims? I ask because some of my trims will need repairing and re-polishing, along with my bumpers
    in the near future.

    This is the place i plan to use, they dont do bumpers. Let me know if you find some who will do bumpers tho as i may get a spare set of mine done.

    this place is not cheap once i get the last two trims i need i will take pics of the worst bits and let everyone know the price.

    Hmm all good, on the mirrors the base is mount to the guard and can not move, the main body is held in place by a spring, and the mirror can move like a a normal mirror.

    I always move the decimal 2 places to the left to give me a 'rough' idea, 30K / 30000 = $300ish

    http://www.ozforex.com.au/currency-c...UD/30000/false

    30K is $380

    easier site is www.xe.com, rate is usually a few yen lower then advertised but gives you a good guide.

    back on topic, is this a early or late model k?

    I have a L24 on the engine stand which im cleaning up, new welsh plugs, water pump,thermosat and new paint(maybe polish rocker cover) with some new seals, for now this will go in. Just buy exhuast and triple webbers for it then drive it till it dies(not long with my track record) swap everythink over to a L28 then i think. I really want a jap exhaust so may import one for the look if i cant find something here close.

    Haha yeah with your RB26 track record I'm not surprised you're staying away from them for a little while

    So this kind of exhaust?

    That's the same look I'm going to do, I know a couple of good places to get it done (one a shop, one a private person) so it looks like that but if you're staying L24/8 it would be more cost effective to bring in one from yahoo auctions. Mine needs to be twin 3'' (Using RB power) otherwise I'd offer getting two made at the same time

    How will it handle 250-300kw from a stock RB26 probably not well, if i want RB i would put a half cage in like Kent had in it before.

    Ah cool cool, yeah you need another GTR - one day

    32 is still here, so's the Supra. 32 made ok power with a 3.0L bottom on it (455rwkw), that engine is for the C110 and I've got a whole new engine coming for the 32. You'll see it around when it's finished, there's really no rush so it's just sort of moving along at its own pace. In the mean time it's great to see you getting through your C110 to pick up any small bits of info that may be needed for my one

    What model is that radiator for?

    Oh they're nice, i've put heaps of K's on the model after that one (body shape after I mean), it had heaps of balls for a daily and the brakes were just huge - great car. Adz on here has probably driven that exact same car too.

    Dont get the Audi just yet, you'll want a 34 every time you see one haha

    I was just lookin at your pics and I saw the brass welsh plugs. I don't recommend using them in anything with an alloy head. (will cause corrosion problems long term). Stainless ones are the go and quite cheap.
    Any how looks good so far. we need more 240K's on the road.

    Brad have you chosen a colour for the engine cover? The crinkle coat red ones look mega cool on white cars, not sure how it'd look on your pewter one?!

    Couple of things learnt today, first and most important is always ask before buying lol. And here are the rest.

    240k and 240z do not have the same door handles.

    Ebay photos looked close


    But different shape and size


    C110 and C210 do not have the same door locks.

    Look the same from the front


    But from behind the they are different, i tried changing the backs over but they are different too.


    Installing this required more skin then i liked lol



    Also 240z pedal boxs are not the same as as 240k, but the 260c looked about right but was not able to strip this car of it.

    I have a manual pedal box from a R30 Skyline you could try and fit.
    It's in Morisset and we are in Sydney. I could probably bring it down in two weeks.

    Has anyone tried to fit a R30 box into a 240k?

    How much of a hassle is it to buy from Yahoo ?,
    I've always though of it, but have no idea how to go about it,
    and from what I have read, they will not send to a none Japan address

    Hi,

    Can you explain to me how this works, if I used http://jessestreeter.com/

    Say I find something on Yahoo that I'm willing to pay 25,000.00 Yen (~$290)

    What is the process to get it to my door, and what are the extra cost over the purchase price

    I agree with Kent,

    I have always used http://www.importmonster.com.au/yahoo and never had a problem, once you register, it can then estimate all the charges delivered to your door. It's generally pretty accurate, if its slightly out, it will either ask you to pay the extra, or refund into your import monster account if you've overpaid. Pretty quick delivery times too.

    4 different sellers so there will be a fair few domestic shipping
    costs, bank fees to cover the total order.


    if the below looks ok let me know and I can shoot you a bill to cover
    the cost of the bids/orders.

    Rough costs on that would be something like this…

    If shipped by EMS (shipping time 4-6 days)
    Rough Total in JPY: ¥134,600
    Rough TOTAL in AUD: $1,737 *depending on exchange rate.

    For details please see below break down of costs.

    Cost of item ¥104,570 <- 9 items
    Ship item to me ¥5,000 <-4 sellers
    Bank fee to pay seller ¥3,130 <-4 sellers
    My commission ¥11,200 <-9 items/4 sellers
    Shipping to Aus, NZ or US via EMS assuming 7.0 kg ¥10,700
    * (I could be off with the weight but what ever it costs to send Ill
    pass on to you)

    Rough Total in JPY: ¥134,600
    *If you would prefer to use PAYPAL: plus 4% paypal fees ¥139,991
    Rough TOTAL in AUD (if paid by Bank Transfer): $1,737
    *depending on exchange rate. current rate is 80.8

    *NOTE: I get ~3.3 yen lower rate than the posted rate on the day when
    I access my Australian account through the International ATM.

    * DO NOT MAKE PAYMENT YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS JUST A ROUGH
    ESTIMATE, PLEASE DONT MAKE PAYMENT UNTIL IVE SENT YOU A PROPER
    INVOICE!!.

    Hi Mate,

    I would but they are absolutely buried at the moment.. if only i had a quad garage!

    if i get to dig them out soon i will let you know.. i think i got 16*8 (0 offset) and 16x8.5(-6 offset).. atleast the rears are what your after

    i really should get some tyres and throw the wat's on the Z..

    I am going to be moving back over your way soon though.. which means more time to work on the car and much more time to come up and see the old girl and the awesome work you've done.. extra incentive to dig the wheels out!

    Have you seen this

    http://www.watanabe.com.au/attachmen...ching_data.pdf

    I'm in the same boat, I have a month to decide if I'm going to spend a lot of money on wheels,

    I was looking at F:16-80 ±0 R 16-85 -6, I did want to go 15s , but getting tires in a decent width would be a issue, 16 have a lot more to choose from

    Yer i have seen this but then i went and looked at ben from Otomoto's car, we have similar mods and he has Rota RB 17x8.5 + 0 and 17x9.5 -19 using a 20mm spacer on the rear.

    Also a good day to fit the windows(could not get a new rear window)

    This has made me want to finish the car even more so updates should come a little quick for 2 weeks or so.

    Not really im waiting on parts. All of the bent SS trim is off being repaired should be finished mid july. Im hoping my parts will get shipped from japan this week so i can fit the motor and get back on track.

    I have found that i also dont have any seat belts so add that too the list.

    I'm curious on the fuel filler cover and air vent cover to convert to G.T.R spec, I've never seen those before, I've only seen the complete fuel filler or vent
    cover for sale. Are they repos or original, and were they expensive? I'd need a set as well.

    I the dash cover from rubbersoul, it cost around 7000yen

    FYI its in the orginals section not the interior.

    The fuel filler/air vent covers from Cityauto and are 9130yen

    Think the standard ones will need a little moding to fit these.

    They are not scratched just have a plastic over them.

    I think you'd remove the originals Brad, they pop out pretty easily, check the pictures I posted.

    I'd be in for a group buy, if someone will help with shipping to the United States after the parts arrive.
