We’re back with the final chapter in this restoration series. If you didn’t catch the beginning of this story, it’s definitely worth getting caught up. This poor little old Corolla was in pretty rough shape when we first got our hands on it, but things are finally starting to look a lot more solid.
Welcome back! In the first part of this series, we introduced you to the RB powered 240Z autocross machine, as well as getting started on some minor improvements. This time around we’re getting a bit more in depth! Let’s dive in!
We’ve worked on a few Datsun Z cars over the years, but this one is by far the most powerful. This car came to us with a storied racing pedigree under its belt as a contender in various autocross series. As with any race car, there’s always room for improvement, and that was the task… Continue reading SAVAGE Z – RB30 Powered 240Z – Part 1
It has been a while since we’ve featured an AE86 restoration on the blog (the last one was the Project 86 build, which you should go look at if you haven’t already). This could be for a couple of reasons: in part because there are very few left around here at this point which haven’t… Continue reading Back From The Dead – AE86 Restoration Pt. 1
Anybody who is familiar with us here at Cyrious Garageworks is probably also familiar with the fact that we tend to enjoy a challenge. A challenge is exactly what we were presented with when Mark brought us the Targa Truck: a 1971 GMC Truck being repurposed from moving lumber from the hardware store to tearing… Continue reading The Targa Truck – 1971 GMC Truck
The adventure continues with our FJ40 project! In our last post, we were cleaning up parts that were salvageable, as well as doing metal work and getting started with mechanical bits. Let’s continue where we left off! Rebuilding antique transmissions, differentials, transfer cases, steering boxes, and engines, as well as assembly!
We stumbled across a fantastic article that goes into great detail about why custom body and paint work costs as much as it does. If you’ve ever gotten a really expensive quote for custom paint and bodywork and wondered how it could possibly be so expensive, this may be worth a quick look! Follow the… Continue reading Why does bodywork and painting cost so much? Hemmings.com breaks it down
Unless you’ve had your head under a big boulder somewhere, you probably heard that we had expanded our operations to do all paint and body work in house. We haven’t actually posted very much about our bodyshop since then, but rest assured that we’ve been slugging away, and we have the pictures to prove it!… Continue reading Paint Booth In Action!
We’ve been fortunate enough to have some really cool Z-Car projects come through our doors, and this one is no exception! This 240z actually came to us in reasonably good shape, but needed some TLC under the hood in more ways than one, along with some drivability upgrades! As you can see, this one is… Continue reading One Quick Z-Car
So, the way that we left off this build, metal work was complete, and the car was ready to take on drivetrain and receive all of the finishing touches. As you can see, it came back to us much the same as how it left. The main difference is that now we have a fully… Continue reading Return of the Rocket Bunny – 240z Completed!
