Hey everyone,
Here's a thread where you post a picture or update or story or info on what you did to your Z today. All the replies must be on topic here. There are some member who want to keep a "on topic" thread on this topic and don't want to scroll though a lot of unrelated replies. If you're one of members, you are more than welcome to participate in this thread. However, if you want to carry on the same topic with other stuff , please post in this thread: http://www.the370z.com/lounge-off-to...ay-thread.html


I'll start this thread off with this:

Finally washed my Z after 5 months and 27 days! :eek:

This week i bought the following for the Z:
  • Hawk 5.0 Brake pads
  • DBA-5000 new rotor rings
  • Koni Yellows
  • Replacement Toyo R888R fronts

Going to see if i can install the rear shocks myself, i'll have the shop do the fronts. Demon bolt ftw

This weekend I'll be installing rotor rings, replacing tires, and swapping brake pads. This should be interesting!!

Currently running seafoam through the crankcase to see about freeing up a sticky valve lifter that's making an annoying tapping noise when the oil heats up

Drove to work

This is weird looking.....

sweet, page 1.

I drove to work... my intermittent EVAP code now turns on every other time I drive, as predicted by a Nissan tech that I recently met. According to him, its enough of a problem now that the techs should be able to figure out what is causing it. It's terrifying, but I am probably going to take it into a dealership *shudder* to get it troubleshot.

Cletus370Z 06-09-2017 07:15 PM

CMAK for the clutch slave cylinder, Z1 light weight flywheel and clutch, a fresh oil change a wash, and a drive after sitting in my garage for too long.

I washed and waxed my car yesterday, and all of a sudden the chance of rain went up. Coincidence I think not

JTM88 06-11-2017 02:13 PM

I decided I had enough of my cloudy headlights so I picked up the meguiars headlight restoration kit. I didn't realize how bad they were till I saw them cleaned up.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...e21a6aace7.jpg

Reinstalled the passenger side radiator baffle after neglecting to do it for the last few months lol

Fuzzzy 06-11-2017 09:59 PM

Found a scuff mark on the back of the hatch. No idea how it even could have happened. Due to storms and darkness, I haven't had a chance to see if it penetrated the paint.

Sometimes I don't feel so charitable toward other people :shakes head:

DeliriousClam 06-12-2017 09:00 AM

going to be doing transmission fluid, differential fluid, and a exterior detail in 90+ degree weather. God help me

mishuko 06-12-2017 09:18 AM

Washed car on Sunday and then sold my stock sways.

Ah was a good day. Was about 33*C when i washed my car lol.

I might have to wait until later in the day when the sun shifts behind the house for a shaded area. I need to work out my options

Rocxtar 06-12-2017 11:18 AM

It was quite a week for my 370z.

1. Finally fixed P0300 code.
2. Won a race (first time with the Z so it was a good feeling)
3. Won a trophy at a local Z show.

Not a bad week I must say with the Z.

DeliriousClam 06-12-2017 06:27 PM

Everything is done. I feel like dying.

something had diarrhea all over my diff

The diff fluid itself was nasty as hell

And after the detail. I love a clean black car so much.

Installed my sport package spoiler. I took my time getting the template just right, but it still ended up being off an 1/8" oh well I can easily fix it later. Besides you can only see it if you look really close.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...04127fbcde.jpg

Installed the iJDMTOY rear tail/brake/reverse lights in my 2016 roadster this weekend. I opted for the smoked lens version. Just personal preference over the red. There are plenty of other posts on this forum with pics and videos on this install which were very helpful to look at before I started. I also felt no need to duplicate that effort, so I didnít take my own pics of the process. And please, SOLDER ALL CONNECTIONS! The two minutes of your life it takes to do it right can save you hours of grief later. First things I did were to add a small bead of silicone sealer around the seam where the body of the unit attaches to the lens. This was based solely on other posters mentioning condensation problems. At the same time, I soaked the bolts of the original dummy reflector with Liquid Wrench to get past Loctite overuse from the factory. I Let both of these sit for 48 hours. Then, I got started.

Iím not sure if anyone else has put one of these into a Roadster, but there are some minor differences which makes this somewhat unique. The side panels in the trunk are different, but the removal/reinstallation process is the same, so no big deal there. The one challenge I ran into was the fact that since this is a fully enclosed trunk, there is the required glow-in-the-dark manual trunk release handle on the inside rear trunk panel. (Never mind how anyone could possibly get stuffed into that trunk!) This made removing that panel more difficult. There is a plastic mounting plate under the handle that snaps into place over the panel, and there is no way to release those snaps with the panel in place. I managed to muscle the panel off without damaging anything, but there was no way it was going back together the same way. With the panel removed and the handle and release cable removed from the mounting plate, I was able to get a pair of long-nosed pliers under the metal frame piece that the plate is mounted on. I was then able to squeeze the tabs to release the snaps and remove the plate. (I really apologize for not taking pics of this.) I could then reassemble the release cable, handle and mounting plate and snap it back into place after the rear panel was reinstalled. This little snafu added about 1.5 hours to my installation time.

Also, I wish iJDMTOY would run the sheath over the wires farther up the bundle. I was about done with the install before I realized how much loose wire would be dangling without that additional protection. I wasnít about to undo it all to wrap it higher up at that point.

So with 20/20 hindsight, hereís what I would have done differently: 1) Sheath the wire bundle with heat-shrink tubing or electrical tape to within a few inches of the wire ends. 2) Loosen, but not remove, the rear interior trunk panel. 3) Tap into the right side tail light assembly rather than the left. Since the trunk release handle is on the left side, this would allow more wiggle room to work with a loosened rear panel. There are also better opportunities to secure the wire bundle on the right underside with other parts of the wiring harness on that side.

Here are some post-install pics, although I now realize pics of the release cable/handle/mounting plate would have been more useful.

I see you are like me. Park where you can protect your baby from other cars as much as possible.

Yup, and my wife parks on the other side of me so I'm fairly protected

I wonder if I could sell mine for 13-15k and get a 40th or pearl white sport with under 30k miles for under 22k.....

Thanks! I will look them over again.. some of the welds i was skeptical.they look decent.. but i feel like the person who did the welds was in a rush or something, one side looked like it was running too hot.

Gear changes feel smoother now. Also seems a little happier to rev

Where did you purchase these and were they hard to install. I'm new to all this.

5 minutes. 1 bolt, 3 nuts, and a wire harness.
