Collected my car from the wheel specialist on Tuesday but didn't get round to taking pics until later in the week due to damp weather. I'd dropped it off with this on the clock:

Found a sunny morning but by the time I got to a suitable venue the finish on the wheels had collected some dirt so not the best pics.

However, I'm really pleased with them - its the closest I've ever had to the original. Tyres were taken off, wheels all stripped back, painted with the right layers, baked and then tyres refitted. All 4, inc. VAT = £312. If you are in the South West I'd highly recommend South West Wheel Refinishers...

They have made a superb job of those wheels, so I don't blame you giving kerbs a very wide berth.  And with wheels that look that good it's not such a shame to get to 111112 miles and beyond.


2007 350Z - You'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.
2004 Yaris 1.3 - It takes a little longer, but you'll get there when you get there, and that'll be fine. It's a better way to travel, and a much nicer way to live.

The Zed had a half-hour turnover today.  If you don't know what that is; it's like an apple turnover, only a little bit tastier and a lot better sounding. 

 

I have found another job for next Spring though.  The offside rear brake caliper could do with a bit of TLC, as the pads don't seem to be making as much contact with the disc as the other three corners.

Collected the Z from the bodyshop just now. It has had my spare bumper and bonnet fitted, paintwork done and blended in to the whole front (spare bonnet was black but they've done both sides very thoroughly). They also de-hazed the headlights. Looks really good but weather means no phots at present...

That sounds good John :thumbs:  What gives me the impression that you're going to make your mota immaculate in and out in time for 2019? :teeth:

Installed a new sound system in my zed this weekend ☺ It went with the Sony XAV-AX100, mainly because I wanted the Android Auto setup. I installed kicker speakers all the way around, 6.5" in doors, 6.75" rear and 10" subwoofer. Pretty much stock setup but not really. Also installed Soundstream Picasso Nano PN5.640D amp in the glovebox. Its a 5 channel amp 60w x 6 + 350W for sub. Its not super high powered but I just wanted it to sound nice. I kind of got jipped on the stereo when I bought my 2003 zed used. Glad I have nice system now. Much more enjoyable when driving around

For the first time since [insert your own guess here, as that's what I'd be doing] the driveway at home was completely dry, so the Zed got another (slightly overdue) half-hour turn-over.  It still knocked an apple turnover into a cocked hat.
 
It all sounded ok.  All the lights worked.  Even the gearbox didn't seem as intransigent as I was expecting (although  has read Simon George's comments about the gearbox in his six-figure mileage Murcielago in this month's Evo, it seems the Zed might have a partner-in-crime in some respects . . .).
 
In other, related news, the seats got a dose of Leather Care Cream; and the O/S/F and N/S/R wings received a bit more touch-up paint, in readiness for another big polish.

Oh, and the aircon had a ten-minute run too, so all is fairly good in Zed world.

Agreed, very much so.

 

It looks like your front lip could do with another dry.  It's a blooming long way down from a good height, isn't it. ;) :lol:

This happened just over a year ago, but it might have only gained another 500 in that time .

Well after much deliberation, I've booked the 350z in for a new mohair roof, ready for the rainey summer to come :lol:
Old one lets it down, not totally u/s but ready for the bin.
