One thing I’ll never stop believing in are the dreams that my inner child holds on to. There are people who don’t have the luxury of thinking this way and I’m sorry if we don’t share this belief. I just know That there’s always a way. You just have to do Whatever it is that you have to do. And you’ll get there Maybe not today, Maybe not even tomorrow, But you will get there. - - Tell me child, Have you dreamt lately? @they.see.nomad @project_fairladyz - - #travellingthroughtheworld #discoverearth #mountainsarecalling #tripaddicts #exploretheworld #mountaineer #exploremore #traveldiaries #doyoutravel #wanderingaddict #nomad #adventureseekers #nomadlife #neverstopexploring #travellikeanomad #hikingtheglobe #350z #nissan350z #zociety #jdm #datsun #vqfamily #350znation #jdmaf #projectfairladyz #jdmdaily #dailydriven #stickshift #importtuner #nomads PC: @samad.sultan at Chicago, Illinois

My boy sold his Z, and I wish he hadn’t. The headlights I would’ve loved to redo, in a millions ways over. My hardest work is out there, and I can’t even look at em. 😔but 😍 See the lastest from us here @project_fairladyz!!! We kinda know what we’re doing, but we kinda don’t. November rains got us cooped up in the garage, baking us a new pair of headlights!! We’re just getting started!!

International Car of the Year: Most Sex Appeal Award 2003 Road and Travel. And 15 years later.... they’re just looking better and better. - If you have one of these, I suggest you hold onto it, cuz they will be just as popular as the 240z and 280zs. If you had one... and now you don’t... I’m sorry for your loss. Grab another. 🤷🏿‍♂️ - - #vqlife #350z #nissan350z #zociety #350zlife #datsun #vqfamily #nissan #infiniti #allvqpower #rawmodified #brembo #vgunited #nismo #g37 #g35 #projectfairladyz #240z #260z #280z #300zx #370z #jdmdaily #dailydriven #drive #driven #stickshift #superstreet #importtuner at Chicago, Illinois

My boy @samad.sultan called me around midnight while I was in the burbs, told me he had his camera on him and if I was down to go for a photo shoot.

Following the troubleshooting guide for the z I found that the air temperature sensor reading was way to high! Basically it's reading that it's like -200 degrees outside when it's actually about 70. Gonna have to replace the whole air flow meter to fix this problem! #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #runningrich #blacksmoke #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Can't do a lot of heavy work due to my surgery so I decided to troubleshoot the 280z running rich condition. Just a clip of what the black smoke that it throws out when I step on the gas. #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #runningrich #blacksmoke #shanini

As I was welding together the second stand I noticed I was missing a piece.... Turns out I welded the wrong piece to the first stand!! 😑 Gonna have to wait until tomorrow to get the correct piece. #Datsun #240z #dumbassoftheday #naruto #projectfairladyz #shanini

My welds got a lot better after I practiced for a couple hours. Still not the best welds but it will work! #Datsun #240z #rotisserie #build #rookiewelds #projectfairladyz #shanini

Some more tubing for the rotisserie. All consisting of 2.5x2.5x.120 square tubing varying from 6ft to 1ft lengths. Still need to get some more but not until the two end stands have been put together. #Datsun #240z #rotisserie #build #tubing #projectfairladyz #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Today I got most of the tubing needed to build a rotisserie for the 240z. I wanted to start welding it together but I quickly found out I suck at welding lol 😅. At this point I want to find some scrap metal that I can practice welding on before I continue welding on the rotisserie. Heck I don't even know if I had good penetration on that first weld! Definitely going to conduct some research and practice welding. #datsun #240z #rotisserie #build #weldingfails #projectfairladyz #shanini

After inspecting the car I realized there was a few more spots of rust that I didn't notice before. Still nothing to major. The biggest jobs I have up ahead are going to be putting in new floor pans, battery tray area, and the body work on the left quarter panel. datsun #240z #projectfairladyz #shanini

Guess who's back! #projectfairladyz has been soda blasted and primed! Time to get back to work! #Datsun #240z #projectfairladyz #shanini

@projectfairladyz

So while the 240z shell is at Calblast I decided to start working on some little things to pass the time as I won't get the car back for another few weeks. Started to strip the headlight buckets to bare metal so I can apply epoxy primer. #Datsun #240z #projectfairladyz #headlightbuckets #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Found a short to ground in the harness from connector 4 to the tachometer connector. This means the harness under the dash has been rubbing on something cutting through the insulation grounding itself causing a short. Looks I have to take out the dash to fix this problem 😫 #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shorttoground #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Currently trying to hunt down a short circuit. My tachometer and turn signal switch stop working every time my fuse blows. I've gone through three fuses and finally decided to try to find the problem. #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

The day has finally come! Time to take the 240z to get blasted! #Datsun #240z #projectfairladyz #shanini

Compression test results! Piston rings seem okay so it leaves me with a valve train problem then. Either my valve guides or valve stem seals are bad. Damaged probably because I did run the engine with no oil pressure on first start ups 😰 #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #ridingdirty #shanini

6
@projectfairladyz

Trying to find out why the 280z puts out way to much smoke out the tailpipe and I stumbled upon a fouled spark plug #4. It's pretty moist with oil. Might explain why she runs pretty dirty. #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

Solution found! Two clips on the battery cables disconnected lol What a relief 😁 Still cranks slow tho #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

@projectfairladyz

I was driving to work and the Z broke down on me. Won't start or crank at all. Batteries well charged so I'm guessing the starter is going out. Plus this loud buzzing is coming from the fuel pump relay now. Wonder what went wrong 🤔. Any thoughts? #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #bugs #shanini

0
@projectfairladyz

Went to get new tires for the Z! In the process of removing the wheels I found I need two new lug nuts and wheel studs. The threads stripped as I took them off 😨 #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Managed to switch the Clutch master cylinder push rods and you can clearly see the difference in length between the two. Now the 280z goes into gear when it's turned on! Thanks for all of your help! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #thankyouall #shanini

6
@projectfairladyz

I did replace the clutch master cylinder last year. Since then the pedal has never been able to rest on the pedal stopper even when it's fully extended and the push rod is adjusted to the max. Wondering if this can be causing the problem. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

2
@projectfairladyz

Tried to drive the 280z for the first time today but it won't go into gear 😑. It went into reverse but grinned the gear doing that. When it's off it goes into gears no problem. I did bleed the system after replacing the slave cylinder. Solution to come soon. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #givemeabreak #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Right rear wheel cylinder was leaking also. That part I won't be able to replace until tomorrow. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #almostdriveable #shanini

The slave cylinder was leaking so I had to replace it. Keeping the old cylinder cause I like how it says "Japan" lol #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

@projectfairladyz

I got oil pressure! Reprimed the pump,disconnected the fuel pump relay, removed the spark plugs and cranked it a couple times until I saw oil getting to the cam. Now she runs super nice! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

18
@projectfairladyz

After finally fixing my fuel problem, turns out that this whole time I've been running the engine with no oil pressure 😱. Yes I had oil in it but for some reason the oil pump isn't pumping anything. I reprimed the oil pump and checked the oil pick up for clogging. Everything was fine but it's just not pumping anything. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #oilpressurenightmare #shanini

New injectors! Time to install and run the engine! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #gunknightmare #fuelinjectors #shanini

5
@projectfairladyz

Tried to clean and flush the fuel rail and injectors. Turns out none of my injectors will spray or click after applying power to them. But the good news is my cold start valve works. Which explains why the motor stalls after we disconnect the hot wired cold start valve. New injectors coming soon! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #gunknightmare #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Flushing out the lines with rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work I'll have to replace them. Thanks to @mr_chaney_man for the advice! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #gunknightmare #shanini

6
@projectfairladyz

I managed to unclog the fuel lines again using compressed air and shot out a bunch of pieces of gunk. It hardens real quick once it dries. So I think I'm gonna replace the lines to get rid of this gunk nightmare once and for all. Major fuel system overhaul needed to get rid of the contamination. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #gunknightmare #shanini

0
@projectfairladyz

Thought my gunk nightmare was over but apparently not 😨. Installed a new fuel pump and rented a fuel pressure tester and read zero! Checked if the fuel pump was pushing anything right after the fuel dampener and nothing can out. So I'm gonna drop the tank and recheck it to see if any leftover gunk may have clogged it up. Thinking of even replacing the fuel lines at this point. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #gunknightmare #shanini

3
@projectfairladyz

We got it to start! The only reason it stayed on is because it's running of the cold start injecting fuel. Otherwise it will die. The cold start valve doesn't seem to be getting power from the thermo time switch. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #firststartup #shanini

14
@projectfairladyz

My timing was correct but my distributor needed to be rotated clockwise. My original distributor adaptor (the one in my hand) didn't give me enough wiggle room. I changed it with a different one with more of an angle and now it's almost starting! So close! @hector240z Thanks for your help! #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #firststartup #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Update: after installing the hose I attempted to start it up for the first time. It wouldn't start! 😩 once in a while it will back fire but that's all I'm getting. Hopefully it's something simple. #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #startingproblems #shanini

Had to make my own hose to connect the fuel tank to the fuel pump. Seems legit #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

The result, turn signals and hazards work now! Next is my reverse lights and horn. #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

Took the turn signal assembly apart and cleaned up the switches as best as I could. Lime away does wonders! #Datsun #l28 #projectfairladyz #turnsignals #shanini

@projectfairladyz

Found a solution for my hazard lights! I opened the switch up and found the contact points full of corrosion and green mildew. Sprayed some lime away and dried it up. Tested continuity and resistance and it passed with flying colors. Now my hazards work all the time! #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #hazardswitch #shanini

She's almost ready for the first start! Just two things remain: 1. Fuel hose that goes from the tank to the fuel pump. 2. I need to find a way to pressurize the oil system. Any suggestions? #l28 #datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #shanini

2
@projectfairladyz

So after checking all the pictures I took before I removed the engine I found that I had connected the white wire on the wrong spot on the starter solenoid. The battery cable and the fusible link have to be in the same post! Everything works now! #Datsun #280z #projectfairladyz #electricalproblems #fixed #shanini
