240Z: Parts ready for Zinc re-plating, New parts in

Was quite busy this week with the Z’s small projects that have been going on. I’ve been cleaning and exchanging the partsi n my tumbler almost daily and today i finally had them completed:

Now all is packed up and ready for zinc re-plating and yellow passivating. Which means i have to wait for the parts for approximately one week before i can continue.
Pretty happy with the result by the way. The Tumbler was well invested money. just took me some years to figure out how to use it properly 🙂

During preparation process i also fixed some parts which where slightly worn out.

Next step: Ordering some parts (will do that in a minute) and then complete some other bits next week.
