What did u do to your Z today ???

Postby Initial_Z » Tue May 18, 2010 8:33 pm

Like the title says ... I made this thread for those of you that doesn't have a build thread and didn't do anything significant to start a new thread for ... ANYTHING you did to your Z today, post them up
:dblthumb:

Pls keep this on topic, Thanks.



Hmm, I'll begin ... I checked my fogs and seem like the driver side burned out... Ordered a HID kit for it... No I wont post up pics until I install it. Also looking up some more CF interior parts for my car :chuckle:

I ordered my heads, some Cometic metal head gaskets, the long silicone oil cooler lines and some OEM things. And of course stood in my garage staring at my beauty... day dreaming about the sound of the turbos spooling up as it throws me back into my seat. :gapteeth:

Last Week : Painted top brake light panel that was faded red, black. Polished my front strut bar to get it shiny again. Tightened the stupid leaking fuel line under the throttle cables. Switched gauges and pods to blue leds.

Today: Wash and a Wax. Probably gonna get another coat of wax tomorrow. Made a list of the things I need now or want in the very near future.

-Suspension (coils, tension rods, FUCAs & RUCAs)
-interior (ripped all panels out to be re-upholster)
-stereo (changed the old pioneer head unit with a new pioneer unit with iPhone adapter)
-engine (now I'm about to order "extreme flush" from Z1)

Today I welded up the bungs for the EGR on my exhaust and spent 3 hours trying to figure out why I'm not getting and power (electrical).

Went in the garage to grab some tools and looked at the car, patted the hood, told it that it was a good car and I'll drive it eventually when I'm not so busy lol

Changed the belt and oil on the supercharger. Pulled the mixing tube to check for fuel.(it was clean :dblthumb:) Looked at tons of bypass valves to replace to one I have now that is too small.

Lastly, looked at it a few times and then on my way back into the house I turned around and gave it one last look as if to say...I love you, you sweet sweet thing. :laugh:

uncovered my Z, popped the hood for a routine fluid level check.
10 minutes later i was full in it, with parts coming off, clearing the upper plenum for cleaning. detailed the engine bay, wire brushed the plenum and it's looking the best it ever has since i've bought it.
4 hours later, sitting in this chair, thinking about how i was bent over the engine bay like that. i'm beat.

Fixed brake noise with a caliper service, added a pair of resonators to my exhaust system to get rid of drone noise

Put the front end back on. Tried bleeding my clutch by myself but I got sick of running around so I'll do that later.

So I turned the key and listened to her idle for a couple minutes. I have 4 pulses reverberating around the inside of my skull now lol.

Changed spark plugs today with the factory spec PFR6G-11s from Z1. Doing o2 sensors over the weekend. Also, how do I make a pic my signature? Someone can either PM the instructions, or show me where to find.

With very little effort I was able to disable all of my speakers and my sub except for the rear right speaker.

Drove her to my new cellphone store that opens on Monday and on the way back home she was going to the hot side and the back to normal (Gotta figure that out). Got home parked her and I said to myself "what a wonderful world"
