Hello everyone, My name is Mark and I'm up in the Scranton area. I have a 90 Z32 that is powered by a RB26. I'm currently doing a full chassis restoration on my Z including cage, stitch weld, and structural fill. I'm on my 3rd Z32 as well as about 10 other fast cars over the past 10 years, but the Z has always been my favorite. I'm a member on almost every Z site out there, but mostly on RBZ32.com and NEPAStreetRacing.com. I joined because I saw nismo300zr2's Z on 3ZC and loved it, hopefully I can get some Q's answered. I look forward to talking to you all on the forums.

Sounds great, Mark, second the request for pics of the RB26.

And I agree, Nate's Z is awesome...

My Z is the red one that is gutted, These pics are from two days ago. The other Z is an NA to TT swap that I did for one of my best friends, its stock engine with the 600r Z1 package and nismo 750 injectors... the thing is unbelievable!




I started to gut the interior to prep it for the 10pt cage from AutoWeldChassis.com, I am most likely stitch welding the chassis, and urethaning the rockers while I have it all apart. I also ditched all of the broken interior panels so I can replace them with fresh new ones. I bought this car for $1000 BTW.








While I was pulling it apart we found the old areas of body work that we are going to fix, mostly just the right rear quarter skin and around the tail light on the left side. Then I'm going to remove the sound deadening and rhino line the interior and underbody.





Now its time to poweder coat the suspension that is not being replaced and install the new powertrix parts that are in the garage. Also have to decide on a new color. I'm not a red fan so I was thinking black, (and Carl who owns the other Z and did all thebody and paint in his garage) suggested dark metallic gray (like the EvoX) any suggestions?
