    Default I Like Exclusive: V. 2.0 Fairlady Z content

    This is a continuation of the "I Like Exclusive" thread from the old Exclusive section of the forum. The documented build thread will continue here.


    Most of you already know me because of the Fairlady Z build on here for the past year or so, or the numerous sets of BBS RS that i build in may spare time among other ventures
    Going to keep this intro V. 2.0 short since im in the office.

    what I do: I am currently 26, I am an Architect, and am also a designer/ fabricator , in the process of starting my own design/ fabrication company.

    a little history of the recent cars in my life:

    2002 audi tt sold in late 2009-



    current DD - 2005 Audi S4- moro blue/ black recaro interior- JHM Tune, catless DPs, Milltek V.1 exhaust non- res, JHM intake mani spacers, H sport RS4 sways f/r, BBS RC forged wheels 18x8.5 et32 with 255/40 summers.






    AND... the reason for this thread. My long term build project, 1990 Nissan 300zx. thousands of hours.. one goal... simple, clean, low and aggressive


    2010- pics credit of Sam Dobbins

    here is the initial thread we are continuing from, just so people can aquatint themselves with this winters build.

    -Pulled motor and transmission out, carried on with the constant motor build,
    -built the trans components a little more by replacing certain components with beefier replacements
    - Full Bay Shave, wire tuck, component relocation and removal of unneeded systems (about 3 months just in welding)
    -new wheels for the new season, more one off suspension components
    -steering wheel rewrap, leather e brake handle work to match full leather interior from previous projects a few winters ago
    -stereo removal

    Not a fan of the camber at the rear - full engine bay looks better too

    Other than that, I like it

    THIS............is giving me hope! I'm currently in 4th semester studying architecture at Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany There's not a single person studying with me who's interested in cars haha...

    Great rides you got there! I hope i can afford something like your nissan project some day!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words..

    I have been finding myself to be much more of a designer then architect as i move forward with the profession. I have a bachelors degree and masters degree in architecture, but having these degrees allows a bunch of room to move into parallel fields, in my case doing a little of both at the moment.

    Update.

    pics of the car as of last night... dont mind the vehicle dollies. making suspension adjustments, and its a hell of a lot easier to do so when the car is a few inches higher. When its on the ground, the fram rail sits just a hair lower then 1.5". just what i was expecting and very happy with it so far.

    Now THAT is how you stretch a fucking tire.

    This build is of epic proportions. Can't wait to see more.

    Thank you guys. more to come soon.

    oh and as per fluid Motor Unions tire comment, the tires are RT-615k track spec tires. hard to stretch but well worth it in the end. and i like to try new things...

    pictures cant describe these rear wheels. stretching a tire on a 12.5" wide wheel looks ridiculous in real life. crappy pic but heres another one of the stretch

    Every part of this car should have its own thread. Immaculate, a true work of art, something to really be proud of right there.

    It's not very often a car on these forums really truly impresses and inspires me, but you sir have done just that. From the awesome attention to detail you show to your selection of quality parts to the rare and difficult to modify platform you have chosen, it just creates a project that is above and beyond most. Keep up great work, cheers!
