    Tokico Illuminas & Tokico springs. I had an extra subframe that I did the camber correction to (slotted the holes & welded tabs onto it ) and I installed urethane subframe bushings on it as well. He is lazy (and is ruining his rear tires) and hasn't brought it by for me to swap it in yet. It also has MSA sway bars, complete 3" exhaust (cheap in town job but works well), AVC-R, urethane bushing kit, and TT front calipers. I swapped his 87 struts assemblies onto his 86 & vice versa. I will then modify his subframe to put in his brother's car. He wants a turbo upgrade but I advised against it until he freshens the engine and allows me to port everything & he gets a gutted plenum. 156,000 miles on it now. I did the timing belt job on it recently to ensure its reliability. The next thing he wants is for me to paint it bright red. That should be done by the end of the summer. Gonna paint his lil brother's the Nissan dark charcoal metallic. Should look quite good! Both of them. Then we'll be rolling 3 deep here in Vegas. lol

Keep in mind this Z has been completely stripped out leaving only what keeps it running and street legal. It also has a bit of a rust problem that has left big holes in certain places. :shock:

        Does this weight sound ligit? I'm not confident in the calibration of the scale either.
        get with eric, that jy scale probably hasn`t been calibrated in 10 years. the one on base is dead on.
