Hello!
My name is Alex and I am building a 1980 280zx drift machine!
Here is a list of what has been done to it:
-Techno Toy Tuning front coilovers (8kgs/mm)
-Megan Racing S13 rear coilovers (6kgs/mm)
-Ultra racing front strut tower brace
-Ultra racing rear strut tower brace
-Enkei Apace II (15x8s)
^wrapped in 195/55-R15 Dunlop Direzza DZ101s
-25mm front wheel spacers (still saving for the rears)
My plans include:
-40cm LED bubble dildo shifter (because fuck you)
-some sort of LSD that will fit in a r200 long nose
-possibly a rb20det swap
-various bozokou bits
-steering wheel and hub
I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about my build thus far. I should be getting picture of the car currently up soon I just need to set up a photobucket or something :P

In for pics! I luv the old Zs.

When you mention bosozoku bits I hope you're talking about something simple like a tsurikawa. I would hate to see it end up like this....

I also go the chance to go down to west bottoms and shoot some MOST dank photos of my car.

All right Here's the interior update:
what went in:
-Ciper auto seat
-Takata Drift II harness
-Momo steering wheel crush hub
-NRG 3.0 quick release
-grip royal Mahogany black wheel with rainbow flake
-Swagaliscious red bandana tied around the crush hub
-Sweet ass JDM bubble shift knob
Image
Image
Image
Image
Overall this all together cost about $1400 id say well worth it! it does make the car a bit of a pain in the ass to daily drive but man is it worth it when you get into the twisties or you wanna go for a little street sliding action! I'm pretty excited to see how much it helps when I get out on the track this season.
Now that Ive finished the interior (until i strip and paint it) im looking to focus most of my efforts towards:
-Fabbing in a 240sx Clutch type LSD (KAAZ 1.5 way)
-Big brake kit front and rear
-hydro E-brake
-A set of NCRAs from Tecno Toy Tuning
-upgraded T.C. rods from Tecno Toy Tuning
-Maybe some new wheels possibly 16x9 or 15x9 still undecided
These are my goals for this upcoming year! how I am going to acheive these goals I have no Idea but that's a small detail in my big plans!

SO HERE IS HOW YOU PUT A LSD IN YOUR NA 280ZX!
Parts you are going to need will include:
A LSD diff center for a 240sx open diff of your brand choosing
driver and passenger side Turbo 280zx CV shafts
Turbo 280zx companion flanges
About 2 ft of steel pipe thats 10mm inner diameter and 12mm outer diameter
New diff gasket
First things first you are gonna have to drain the fluid out of your diff, then you are going to want to start taking off your current U-joint axles. I would reccomend starting on the outside and unbolting them (make sure your combonation wrenches have thin walls otherwise they wont fit) then popping them out of the diff with a crowbar, dont be afraid to man handle it a little bit to get it out. Once both sides are out you need to undo the driveshaft soak those bolts in PB blaster pretty good youll need it. Now comes the difficult part getting the acutal diff out of the car. There will be four bolts holding the "snout" on the subframe there are nuts on top of the bolts and they are a pain to get to but thats really the worst part. After you have those guys out you undo the big rear mount and wiggle the diff out of the subframe lowering it with a jack. Next thing is to pull the diff cover and pop the open center out using a hammer handle put the open center in a vise and pull the ring gear off of it. Now comes the pipe, cut short lengths that match the holes on the LSD diff and slide them into the holes then bolt up the stock ring gear and pop that sucker into your housing. Stick the diff cover back on and put it back into the car. Now get your turbo axles and shorten up your passenger side axle about a quarter inch on the splines. pull your NA companion flanges off of the back of your hubs (you will need a 27mm impact socket and impact gun setup reeeeaall high, you will probably need a new nut) then you can bolt on your turbo companion flanges. All thats left now is to put in your axles and go drifting!
If you have questions feel free to ask!
