240Z: Parts back from Zink Plating, New Rocker panels welded in, Fuel cap assembled
Today i have some nice news: Got back my first load of parts from the Zinc plating and yellow-passivating (which makes it look “golden” and also secures it better from corroding:
Honestly this was my first attemt ever in doing something like this. so not all parts ended up perfect as i hoped, but however most of them are usable and some of them were for trying anyway only because anything up t 39 kilograms was the same price so i put whatever part i wanted to have replated into the box anyway. Here’s a closer look at the colour:
So while i was looking at all the nice parts i got a bit motivated and decided to complete at least the fuel cap 🙂 So i started with cleaning the still nice and soft rubber seal and adding a bit of Vasiline (Petroleum lube / Jelly) Just to make it last a bit longer.
After done i put it back to the cap
And installed all back together. Yay – first part complete 🙂
But not only me was productive today, also Yves over at MUC is working hard at the moment and welded back some hand-crafted rocker panels: Still needs a few touches but it looks brilliant compared to what it looked before 🙂
With the zinc-plating delivery today i got a lot of parts back which i was waiting for to complete the steering rack assembly and the Front subframe parts. So Expect to see a lot of these parts assembled soon 🙂
In Zurich, where did you get items yellow zinc’ed in CH?
Hi Michael. There are several companies. but specially for private persons with big amount of small pieces i figured out this company has the best price:
it’s not around zürich but you can send stuff by package and they will return it to you. great company!
Thank you, will give them a try.
