No sucking in of that gut.

Yeah. Read a history book that described what men looked like that was successful in medieval times. Had well muscled arms. Meaning that they could do a hard days work. And if they have a belly on them. They ate well. Meaning they had money to afford food.

Unfortunately the 'successful' women looked much the same.

Late Entry:

Here's some close-up photos / images of the accident and what kind of damage was done!

I just had some time to go to the shop last night and take some photos -- so I'm just documenting them as part of my timeline as well as for you guys to see in case anyone was interested!

Jee feels like I was following op not too long ago..
Seems like a lot of money already dumped into it in such a short time. Boost after a month with all the bells and whistles within the year.

No update op? Parting out? Moving everything over still?

Hey. Thanks for tuning in still!
Yeah, I've been really busy lately and things have been a bit slow as far as car progress.

Here's a quick update of what's to come soon!

1) My yellow 2009 Z had the engine just taken out 2 days ago.
2) My red car has everything disconnected and readily available for the engine removal to occur this coming Saturday.
3) I will need to buy new exhaust manifold gaskets because that was destroyed when removing the engine.
4) The way we are removing it is using a cherry picker in a standard 1 story home garage, lol so the work is a ton more than it would be with an actual car lift.

STAY TUNED FOLKS!
I have pictures soon!

Oops!

~Quick Update on the Z Life~!

After a lot of thought, weighing in the pros, cons, and using my audience life line (Asking a bunch of my friends for opinions), I decided to sell my first beloved car today for a total of $2350.
I sold the headlights to one customer for $600.
Then, I sold the rest of the car to someone for $1750.
He is local, and is sending a tow truck to come pick it up tonight sometime soon.

I sold it on the basis for that price + him performing labor to remove the aftermarket suspension system, the entire pumpkin differential piece, and taking out the modded fuel pump that is supposed to go with my supercharger unit system. I think that the labor + the cash he paid is more than a fair deal for me -- as it saves me and anyone who would have helped me in the future time and energy as we planned to remove those ourselves.

Although it does suck to see my first vehicle go, but I have a 2nd Z in the garage right now -- a 2009, 370z, Sport Package, 370z, 7AT body of ~92k miles.

The engine and everything in it will pretty much be brand new (<1000 miles on it).

I now have freed up space in my garage, which is a big relief and a burden off of my shoulders.
I also made a good amount of money from parting out the car / selling it, as it is one less thing I have to worry about now.

All of the aftermarket parts will be transferred to the Yellow 09 Z, as it will be my new beast of a daily driver soon.

Onto the 2nd chapter of the car life!
Tomorrow, My friend is supposed to come by and help me start putting together the stuff back onto the Yellow Z.
Hopefully we can accomplish a lot tomorrow, will keep you all posted.

Thanks for being patient <3

Attached is photos to the images of the final car as it is before it goes.

Got some things done this week.

She's starting to look like a car again <3

Hopefully by mid-next week, she'll be alive and exercising (:

She's been sitting on her butt too long, D:

The things that are left to do so far is:

1) Install the rest of the A2A Kit

2) Remove demon bolts from one of the headers so we can isolate the cat and put it into this car (The unit is completely out of the vehicle already so it's okay)

3) Hook up the 2015 Red Z ECU to the Yellow 09 Car -- ByThaBay put the correct and most up to date firmware on the ECU to have it work and fit into the Yellow 09 Z.

4) Put all necessary fluids in:
- Transmission Oil || Coolant || Engine Oil || Etc... ||

5) Put the bumper and hood back onto the car

6) Torque a few things down to spec

7) Hook up the battery

8) Put the shift linkage spacer / gasket spikey thing back in

9) Hook up the PCV lines near the TB's which I have no idea where they go still...still need to figure that out

10) Hook up the headlights

11) Put in the modified fuel pump from the original Stillen Supercharger Kit

12) Start the car...hope she turns on correctly!... And after she runs correctly, will install the KW V3's again onto the suspension, and slap on the Quaife Diff (Which is already inside the pumpkin unit, so really, just need to swap pumpkins)

WE'RE ALMOST THERE FOLKS!

STAY TUNED HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE FOLLOWING THIS THREAD SINCE THE BEGINNING, SUPPORTING ME, ETC.

Love you Z Family <33

If you mean the timing chain cover, that was changed 4 months ago to a new one. Nothing went wrong with that so we didn't touch it during the transfer process xD
