Bringing ABANDONED Datsun 280z BACK TO LIFE in TWO DAYS! *Untouched 14 YEARS*

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 17 Peb 2019
    We did it!! Our plan was to buy this 280z for Tiana for my wedding/valentines gift. When we first found it, it had been sitting untouched & not started for 14 years. I took the chance that we could start this thing and I bought the car! This video shows the entire process of us cleaning the 280z, doing all of the basic maintenance, starting the 280z, then doing some awesome cosmetic mods to make it look better!

    Hey bro I own a Datsun 280ZX 1983 model that looks very similar. Where do you order custom Datsun parts at, such as (carpet, seating, dash, panels, consoles, steering wheel)?

    It looks really good I think you may need starter shims what it sounds like when you frist started it I bet the paint would polish out pretty nice with buffer it was cool seeing all of the lights and gages work after all that time of setting. Cool build 👌🔥

    That stock colour is awesome i reckon that it would look good with some colour matched rivet on arch extenders and some bronze, carbon or black wheels. It would be cool to see you keep the l28 and turbo it or keep na plus efi and elec ignition plus performance or oe improvement parts
