Yeah the 71z restomod was a 6 year nut and bolt resto. Took me forever but I replaced/restored every single piece/inch of the car. Full Techno toy suspension etc. I am now restoring all the original suspension parts and rebuilding the L24 engine for my next build. I Am actively looking for a solid body 70/71 240z. This time I'm gonna stay mostly stock except hopping up the engine somewhat. Gonna make an Art Car Exterior and make it a regular driver. The 29 model A started in 2016 as well. I did most of the engine but had a lot of help on the body since it is out of my wheelhouse. Regardless it has also been a labor of love. In the meantime I completed this 75 FJ landcruiser suspension undercarriage etc. One more and I am done for this lifetime:) BTW Anyone that says restoring a Z is easy is full of crap:) :)
