    I've came to a point now...where I can't decide what to do, or what car to work on first. 2 months away in Florida, and I thought I'd come up with a plan...but nothing.

    Car one... The Red Datsun 260Z. Needs everything.

    Needs a full wire harness, 12-18 circuit Painless harness. NeedToBuy
    Haltech install...have
    briefly go thru the turbo motor, check rings and bearings.
    new turbo, T3/T4... NTB
    new intercooler, 24x3x18... NTB
    weld in the cage...have
    paint...have
    swap in the R200 Diff...have
    get the ArizonaZcar.com rear diff bracket...NTB
    CV axles swap...NTB
    new seats...NTB
    larger injectors...NTB
    weld-in camber plates...NTB
    wide flares installed...have
    front fiberglass fenders installed...have
    remove carbs and go back to Fuel Injection....have
    get Carbon Fiber Hood...NTB
    remove rust and weld in new frame rails.
    install turbo exhaust...have
    install adjustable front and rear susp parts...NTB

    Result: The most Pimped out Z in the area that can do shows, drift, cruises, and end up the garage queen for many years.



    Car Two... The Yellow Datsun 260Z. Needs gone.

    re-install triple weber carbs from red Z...have
    install the bilstien shocks and springs from old white Z...have
    toss some wheels on it...have
    install the Hooker Competition header and duel pipe exhaust w/4 cherry bombs from red Z...have
    Weld Diff...labor

    Result: Have a car I can race/drift once or twice, and if I'm not happy with it, then sell it.




    Car Three... The Red 87 CRX. Needs some work.

    remove tranny and replace the seals...labor
    tighten up turbo fitting on back of engine...labor
    remove intake and de-vac car...labor
    Install 2 weber/mikuni carbs...NTB
    decide if going blow-thru turbo, or all motor carbs.
    some minor body work and paint...labor
    toss more wheels on it...have

    OR just do a ZC DOHC swap and prep for daily driver status...NTB

    Result: Sick as hell autocross car with mad tyte JDM Flavor. Race and pimp it once or twice, then sell or keep it for DD.



    Car Four... The Red 88 200sx. Needs some work.

    Install Nismo 2 way LSD from red Z...have
    Install coil-overs...NTB
    Install seats from red Z...have
    Install automatic ECU...coming

    Thinking about SR20DET swap....

    Result: The mini-drift bitch that doubles as a fun DD. Might sell if gas goes up more.




    I have too many projects...so screw me, but most of the projects have most of the parts already. I'm a parts hoard, and a wheel whore... And I have a little bit of money to toss at anyone of the cars right now to complete it... The red Z will need the more parts to finish it up the way I want it, so it's going to get funded by one of the other cars that I finish and sell.

    the parts from the stripped white one is halfway on the red one now...and the yellow one really doesn't have anything on it cool...except the carbs.

    nope...that was the red one...

    I never drove the yellow one. I bought it to de-commission it. It was a stupid quick little Z that made my Z look like a slug. So when I saw it for sale...I jumped on it. Plus it came with a trailer. Hehe..and thats another project.

    treat it like an a/c fleet.

    fix all the Red "X's" and sell everything that just has a red "/".

    find 1 car that you MUST keep and put that to the side with all the parts. figure out what you can sell and clear out to raise money for the car you really want to keep.

    I'm pretty sure since I've been a member the CRX has been "incomplete".

    The house kinda wrecks it for the multitudes of projects. I'm with ya on that one.

    Pick one project. Clear out the rest. Nothing wrong with one project at a time. And do something you're passionate about. Build the plane.
