Andys 1200 Sedan

Post by z181200 » Sun Sep 21, 2008 10:13 pm

This is my z18et powered 1200 sedan. I bought it off trademe at the start of the year. It was a bit of a gamble as the photos were pretty crappy but I was stoked as when I finally got to get it.

Image

Its had a respray at some point in the original green and already had the engine fitted when I got it. It was not going but after getting rid of the computer it came with and using a standard one its now mint.

Image

Plans are to upgrade the suspension and brakes, put in a larger diff and get it certed. Then tidy up the interior and do some simple mods to the engine: exhaust, intercooler etc.

Image

So far I have put hubbies and whitewalls on it, new shocks in the rear, bluebird struts and brakes, have got an h190 diff that needs to be shortened and lots of small gay things that arent worth mentioning.

Car looks great man, what are those hubbies off?

I reckon the Z18 is the perfect conversion for a 1200.

Cheers I got the hubbbies from the hubcap shop in christchurch. Im not sure what they are off but possible some sort of datsun.

The z18 would be the perfect conversion if you could find parts for them, and people that had some knowledge about them haha.

The best part is that apart from the wickedly noisy turbo spool, it sounds just like an A series motor. :mrgreen:
