It took a lot longer than I had hoped, but I finally get the body work finished and get into painting some high fill.

Hope you recover quickly Mrs Jeff, we miss your cheery face. Chicken broth will help.

Haha, I actually made her chicken broth and she moaned about it ;) (well I put a stock cube in a cup of boiling water and it may not have completely dissolved :P).

So who did the cooking to give Mrs Jeff food poisoning ? ?

This week it is time to prep the body of the Z for primer.

I am in the final stretch with the Beetle build now and this week I got stuck into tidying up the froot.

shame you ruined (imho) the fuel tank but I understand the easier option of not masking it off.

Either way, mission accomplished with a neater looking froot ;)

Do you mean that the fuel tank should be another colour? Or that is should just be left as it was? 

I am not going for originality with thing at all, just trying to make it neat and tidy ?

Just thought it looked tidy enough after the clean (fuel tank). As mentioned, you definitely achieved the goal of neater look!

Did you look back at the number of times you called it an engine compartment !  :D  aren’t we largely rear engine fans around here?   Looking forward to the Porsche engine update

I am just a dumb ass and kept calling it the engine bay. I think it is my tiny brain struggling with the concept :D

I am back from my hectic week building my engine in the US and I am getting back into working on the Z. This week I got into primer and cleaning.

This week it was a matter of doing a bunch of stuff that I had to get done on the Z before I can start throwing colours around.

This week I fit the mirrors to the front guards and then start cleaning up the pistons to get them ready to re-assemble the L28 engine for my Z.

I've always wondered why they put the mirrors there, as I'm sure they'd be hard to see anything behind. Any specific reason Jeff?

I have no idea. They are FAR from practical, but I like the look. Definitely more a cosmetic thing than something that will actually be useful ;)

This week I am getting stuck into the L28 engine for my Datsun 240z. That includes balancing the pistons and rods.

It helps the car be narrower for Japanese roads, was standard fitment rules until early 80s until exports really took off, and rules changed to allow for door mounted, and the japs stopped buying them.  Kind of like the bench seat - too uncool compared with fancy cars like Porsches and BMWs.
