  1. If its review based I've been through a load myself. There are companies very local to me with decent reviews.
  2. I've managed to get hold of a brand new Genuine Nissan windscreen for £250 just need to get it fitted by someone competent now. The old Z is off the road for a bit getting some tender loving care.
  3. Thanks guys - yes I'm trying hard to avoid any headaches. I definitely wont be using auto windsreens based on quite a few horror stories. Found a few other local ones that are receiving repeat good reviews that can work with my insurer so will be in touch with them.
  4. Hi, Not been on the forum for ages now - due to personal reasons. Alot of the normal of my life took a back seat for a while. Still got my 370z but unfortunately it now has a 12 inch crack due to a stone hitting it at 70mph. I can claim through my insurer but they use a company called auto windscreens who I believe use to be quite good but of late seem to be receiving alot of 1 star reviews. I was planning to remove all the necessary trim from the car myself regardless of whoever does the job but just wanted to know if anyone else has dealt with this company or even if you had the screen replaced yourself, who did you use? Many thanks and hopefully be about on the forum a bit more now. David
  5. I sorted my axle click out nearly two years ago now using Honda M77 Assembly paste. So far no axle click. Also had my first part failure in 3 1/2 yrs ownership. Windscreen washer pump completely siezed up on sunday just gone. Managed to get a replacement and fit the washer pump in time for the Z's MOT today where it passed with flying colours. Just advised my front PS4's are wearing a little low on the outer edges. I blame Milton Keynes for that!
  6. Its basically a copy of the stillen kit but I want to take it one step further to give it a cleaner install/finish. This will involve 3d printing initially. I appreciate a brake cooling kit is not the first thing on peoples shopping list by I expect to make more kits at some point for anyone interested. I am making a full exhaust system at some point too. tbh, I'm finding motivation again since my back is behaving and my ability to hang under bonnets again has become more tolerable. lol
  7. I made it completely from scratch, Paul I'm starting to get workers hands again.lol I used a gates belt. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-Rib-Multi-V-Drive-Belt-fits-NISSAN-370Z-Z34-3-7-2009-on-Gates-11720EY00A-New/233572793467?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  8. I had a really persistent squeal that was slightly hampered by a blow just infront of the cats when cold. I've been around cars long enough to know certain sounds and bought a belt ready to replace it in the hope I had the culprit nailed. Its amazing how you become familiar with squeals , screeches, scrapes, clunks, bangs, thumps and other things.lol
  9. Chubbs - 1kg bag of Food Grade Citric Acid powder. I used that straight up in whatever size container I need for the job. If I need to apply to something on the car then I just add a little wallpaper paste to give it some binding/clinging power. Paul - that is the original undertray cleaned up a little. PS> new belt has made the car much quieter from cold so very pleased there too.
  10. I also replaced my serpentine belt as the original one was starting to squeal even though it looks absolutely fine with the tension indicator also ok. Anyway new belt seems to have sorted it out but will tell 100% in the morning on a proper cold start. Another thing I tried this evening was making my own rust remover. I was going to try bilt hambers deox c but decided to look for an alternative. It would seem that would for less than £5 I can make something just as effective. Using citric acid and wallpaper paste as a binding agent for suspended/ in situ parts. Well lets just say I'm more than impressed even after a few minutes and a little agitating later it completely removed any sign of rust from my lower hose brackets to the point you would have thought they were new! 100% recommend this to anyone who wants to go rust busting (not converting). Actually removing all rust completely. I might do an overnight in a bowl with some parts to see what it does over 24hrs on its own.
  11. Here you go, Chubbs. A little more research may have found something better but I wanted the cover back on minus the nasty, rusty hardware asap. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-x-skoda-vw-audi-seat-vauxhall-splash-shield-undertray-Clips-Stainless-Bolts/111923309209?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  12. Car Looks Great, Chris. Got home from work and tinkered with the z for a bit. Cleaned and fitted my undertray along with some new stainless fasteners.
  13. I'm still getting away with using a few coins and it works fine at the moment.
