    I like what you did with the color change on the tach and speedo.

      I got my AC working!! I had to pull the dash and replace all the vacuum lines. It was a pain but well worth it. I doesn't blow super hard but it cools me off when it's 110 in this California heat. Who lives in Cali on their own terms beats me.
      Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

        My dashpot (the vacuum device that pulls the doors) had rubber-rot so it needed a new one to work. Had to pull out the entire dashboard...

        My non car guy buddy decided we talked about cars and bikes too much at work and decided to get a project. He couldn't decide between a Z32, 240sx, or an E36. I told him to check out Z31's. He fell in love and just so happens, one of the Marines in our squadron had an 85 2+2 that skipped a tooth and had been sitting for 6 months. Talked him down from 800 to 500 bucks and towed it to my house.

        We tore the front end off and checked the timing belt. Timing belt was good and on the correct teeth. I told him to buy a battery and we'll put it back together. Tried to start but nothing. I pull the distributor out and it was way off. Got the engine to TDC and re stabbed the distributor. Starts up first try and purrs. The man has a running 5 spd with working digi dash and cold A/C for 600 bucks.

          I didn't have a heat gun. And a PO it seems already attempted this halfway and used superglue to reseal.

        Have a used mint one on order to try again. and the old cracked one is already modded and ready to wire into the rear brake lights. Just filling the cracks one last time with gorilla glue and will hit it with
        1) DRY block sand (don't want the glue to get gooey)
        2) acetone wipe to get that factory smooth finish.

          talked a buddy back home into the Z31 bug, he picked up a 86T in great condition. He goes pretty hard in the S-chassis and local drift scene. He's no squid and slides with a great crew, can't wait to see how it turns out

            Every z31 drift project is a minimum $5k just to do it right (subframe swap, lsd diff, suspension, turbo+ecu) you've financially ruined your bud
