Final flatting done, just one area where there is a mark that needs touching up, quite happy with it though given the intricacies of the Z.

Mask it again and pearlescent paint tomorrow then fingers crossed I can get them fitted on Friday.

This is a really good idea. Looking forward to the video! You've got me wondering what mine would look like in grey.

I finally found some time to give the Z (and Juke) a little TLC.  To my shame, this is the first proper clean and vacuum they've had this year.  The Z looked very unloved. The final r

Here a short video.    

Not what I've done for my Zed but more what it has done for me... 3 year anniversary today!!! Loved every year, month, day, hour, minute and second. Did I mention that I like it...?  Here's to ma

Finally got my car back last night. Instead of the usual SORN over the winter months it went off to a mate of mine for the winter months while I contemplated what to do with her and he got to drive it and sort out a few things for me that needed doing whether I was gonna sell her or not. Since figuring out I was able to keep her it was good to finally get her back. I must admit firing her up for the first time in over 3 months I was actually a bit nervous and yes, I'd forgottten just how loud she was!

So here she is all shiny looking (I don't suppose that'll last!!) newly painted black wheels and matching wheel nuts, new rear tyres, ding taken out of wing and dent taken out of exhaust tail.

The big question now is, what to do about the wheel centres and brake calipers?? And yes badges are tentatively on my list...

Hey mate.  Glad you're keeping her :)

I've a set of spare calipers so if you want to borrow those to send to a firm for refurbishment / recolour then it means we can swap them over - maybe at the Members Workshop Day?

Wow, thanks a lot for the offer Paul, I'll bear it in mind. There's a couple of other things that are more of a priority at the moment so the calipers won't get done for a while.

There's no rush mate.

Some places do an all in 1 service where you post them off, they do restore them to your spec, then send them back.  If you want to go down that route I can post them to the place and you can get them to return them to you.

It wouldn't take much of your time and they would be ready for when you have time to fit them :)

Brilliant Gav. Well done. I hadn't realised they'd have a black outline - looks excellent.

Yeah, that's the look I was aiming for, I prised the lenses from the body so I could retain the black ring around the edge. 

Thanks for the feedback, after the things that went wrong, I'm glad they turned out ok 🙂

Looks spot on Gav! Of course, you could have saved yourself a lot of hassle and sold your silver Zed, bought a black one and then just ordered the black side indicators! 😆

His Z isn't silver, it's white, so he'd have to respray the entire car silver before he sold it, which, given his recent performance, might have been worthy of its own thread.

To redress the balance slightly Gav, you'll be delighted to hear that I'm waiting for the weather to warm up slightly, so I can remove my sexy side markers and spray them GunMetal :) You've inspired me!

I'm planning just one difference from your method - I found a can of Hycote Adhesion Aid in the garage, so I plan to spray that as the first coat. Masking off those Zs will be fun (I enjoy fartarsing around with things like that).

Interestingly, I discovered that Glyn Hopkins St Albans don't sell rattle cans of the genuine Nissan paint anymore, but Halfords do one called Nissan Gun Metal. I dare say it will be just as poor a match as the Nissan one used to be.
