General Information

1986 300ZX GL
I am the third owner and bought it from a person who lives near me in Mt. Juliet Tn. He found it had been parked many years in a covered home garage by the original owner who decided to sell it circa 2013.
It has around 178,000 miles on it and is stock except for the mods listed here which are;
These were before I bought it
).Free Flow air filter replaced the air box ,Timing belt replaced,A/C converted to r134a ,detailed under the hood/door jamb cleaning, clutch replaced, front brakes, high performance Muffler(looks really great from behind)

Since I bought it I have done the following - (pics in my album show step by step) - B&M short throw shifter, Koni adjustable Shocks and Struts, Moog Cargo Coil rear springs replaced, replaced brake fluid, Nissan recall paid for full Injector replacement, Newer Model stereo system with high power amp (behind driver seat) and speakers replaced in stock locations with upgraded speakers, Mustang Cobra_R Chrome Rims 245-45-R17, replaced A/C compressor(twice), replaced blower motor(fan), replaced the battery cables(made everything seem better), rebuilt starter, added under car light kit with remote, headlights replaced with new halogen lights with a "Ring" around the light(which look really from a front view) and last but not least I bought a buffer from Eastwood and some polish and went to work on the original paint.

The buffer and wax made the original paint stand up and it looks a lot better, even though it has plenty of spots in it. I was able make the car shine up nicely and its fun to drive. I'll try to attach a pic or 2 to this but for a really good view look into my album for specifics. Now its a daily driver if I needed it but mostly gets out 2 or 3 times on weekends.
