September 17th, 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 has an opening for fall 2016, and I'm going to get
this car in while the gittin' is good!! After that, I'll remove the engine for a freshening up, new
wiring harness, new clutch, fresh turbos, some breather mods, bigger
injectors, all the deletes, and some other goodness! 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.
September 4th, 2016 - Steve's Slicktop Progressing Along!
With Trip's convertible completed, the focus will come back
to Steve's slicktop. It's still at the paint shop, but I have
gotten Steve's engine back from the machinist, and will begin to
assemble it very soon. I still have to order a set of rings &
bearings for it, the crank is in factory tolerances so I'll use OEM
bearings. The pistons are .5mm oversize, so I'll have to get a
different ring set...no biggie. I ordered the gasket set ages ago.
Goldie went under the knife over the winter 2014~2015 and made her 5spd
debut in May 2015!! She's also sporting a freshly overhauled
engine, a complete power steering rework, and topped off with a fresh
