May 14th, 2016 - 1990 TT, The One-Owner Wonder about to begin!!
A few changes have occurred the last few months, but all
this did was possibly change the build order a little. As
originally planned, the black 90TT is next up, that hasn't changed.
My local body shop penciled it in mid-summer to get it looking pretty
again. After that, I'll remove the engine for a freshening up, new
wiring harness, new clutch, and all the deleted. After that, I'll
rework the suspension, brakes, and some nicer wheels. When
finished, this beauty of a Z will be for sale.
Zmods.org is back for ulterior reasons, mainly I want to
use the site to document builds that are done at the enigmatic Z-Farm.
I've been doing regular builds for the last 9 years, and have been very
meticulously documenting them since 2008. I record these builds to
log my personal progress and for future reference only. I am not a business, and I do
not accept outside repair work or builds. I build basket case
Z32's and find them new homes when I'm done.

destroy the piston & valves, leaving the hole completely dead @ zero PSI
compression...good time for a rebuild! Follow the
