    930 is a nice choice, a bit out of reach for me
    I used to have an old 944 with Gemballa parts.

    Have a look at this one http://www.fairlady300.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2277

    vintage???

    Sorry but I thought vintage would be a 260 fairlady?
    Not a 300z

    Still for some reason I like the 300 body style the best. 2 of my buddies have the latest version. 1 is even a convertible. Sweetness but not a 300

    Not yet vintage, it is one of the rare cars that can't get old by their design but by the time elapsing...

    Some rust attacked the wing's metal structure...i plan to get rid of the stock foam wing and buy a serious fiber wing but for now i managed to make it look cleaner than what it was below.



    I made two plexi parts like this


    Shaved the foam that keeps water in it's cells and cured the metal behind


    afffixed the first support of plexi to get a plane and regular surface, here checking just to see how it fits


    and many adjustments later for a perfect fit the screws are sunk in the plastic.


    with a final result not too bad compared to what it used to be

    The only fairlady's ive seen are right hand drive, almost like me calling my Toyota Soarer a lexus SC400, when i lived in japan they were all over the place, nice fix for the spoiler by the way!!!

    lolo, Japan basically uses different names for most of their cars here.
    However, I noticed that the US camry is more of a markII for us here. The Japanese camry version is a .... granpa car.

    @ spoiler
    Nice job!
    VW scirocco has a similar problem with it's wing. Somehow moisture gets under the foam and then has a blast rusting out the metal trapped in the moist environment.

    I can try to source an original for you but I have a feeling that even over here we'd be having similar problems.

    Which wing are you thinking to changing to?

    Thank you Sapporoguy, it's very kind of you !!

    I found in a uk shop something that doesn't breaks too much the spirit of the car, it looks like this.



    Now i have to wait because the part and the shipping is expensive so i probably would have to kill somebody to have enough money to buy it

    Ok it's not that expensive but what's the difference between 1 billion and 300 £ when you don't have it, i found none
    I have the main piece, the Z, now with patience i will build it like i want part after part
