Newbie from Scotland

Post by Monsween » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:51 pm

Hi All,

I'm Kieran from Aberdeenshire and only very recently got myself an FB.

I've joined up for some future help when puting this thing back together. I've been helping a buddy replace a 13b in his FC so not totally alien to me but still quite new. This will be a long project as i have another main project on the go right now (RB26 240z) so may take me some time to get into but none the less, looking forward to learning :)

Looks like it has plenty potential ... Are they banded steeles?

I'm in Ayrshire ( might as well be the moon distance wise) who knows i might get mine to a show next year if you do any?

I'm not 100% sure on the wheels, need to get under the car and get a better look at it once it's in the garage.

Whats the plans for it? I think banded steels look good, hard to tell specifically on yours without more pics 8-) Aberdeen definetly has a rotary bubble that re rest of Scotland doesnt have...

I've been speaking with my mates that know rotaries and its either repair this 12a or go for a 13b that he knows of that may be for sale.

Still unsure on exactly what i'm going to do with it but i'll be rotary regardless

As long as its going to be rotary :D. Has the engine lost compression?

I havent managed to check over the engine yet, too many other jobs at the moment but atleast i managed to get it in the dry now!

I suspect the engine will need more work and perhaps a running 13b isnt a bad option

What else have you got in your garage?
Is that a 260Zx?
