What did you do with your Z today V (ON TOPIC DISCUSSION ONLY)

Wrapped my B pillar covers with some Vivid matte carbon wrap i had laying around (was going to use it on the interior, but wrapping is harder than it looks)

Up close you can tell I didn't cut it completely perfect but looks ok from afar.
Going to be grabbing seibon real carbon replacements at some point anyway.

Set timing on the Z after replacing the oil gallery gaskets and discovered a nasty surprise that I'm not sure how it got there, but there's a small crack in the rear timing chain cover on one of the bolt holes directly above the thermostat housing. Did the best i could for now to prevent the crank from spreading until i can get it taken care of, she's back up and running, but it made it a bittersweet ending to the weekend

Ordered the Z1 fuel port and a nice mini fuel pressure gauge as a "while we're here" type of add-on.

Cmon man, it’s 7:30 in the morning and you made me change my shorts already.

Damn, that thing is clean. Love what you’ve done with it so far.

I appreciate the comments. I didn't do much to my '12 Nismo and regretted it, so this project car has already been more enjoyable.

I still need to get my software re-flashed so it can pass. For now, I just make extra sure not to speed when I drive the car.

Once I get the Ethanol sensor wired in, i think I'll just schedule time with my tuner to dyno it and do the software changes all at once.

Winding Road was backed up for the next week, so I went ahead and did all the work myself. The only problem I had was with the retaining clip that holds the fuel line against the chassis. I got frustrated and just used the dremel on it. Got the new sensor, fuel port, and gauge all installed and wired up to the haltech. Now i have verification that the local station with E85 sucks. I'm reading 51% ethanol -_-


A bonus is that the GM fuel sensor also has a temperature output. So I connected that as well.

Replaced a coolant line for the passenger side throttle body, it had a good life at just a hair over 218,000 miles lol
