    I got inspired to build this Re-body Kit for the Z a few years ago , I had a friend who wanted a Vaydor but didn't want to pull the trigger on getting one until he saw one in person .
    So we flew to Tampa to Visit Matt McEntegart at Vaydor from Vancouver Island British Columbia Canada ( couldn't get any farther away unless Matt was in the Key's )
    We thought the Vaydor was Awesome ,we attended a Hot Import Nights car show where Matt's Vaydor was the feature , the next day we went to meet Matt at his shop , super nice guy , gave us the tour and answered all our questions.
    Everything was great !! But the logistics weren't , the Canadian dollar against the USD , was like 37 cents on the dollar at the time also distance to ship etc .
    So on the way home ( several flights ) I got to thinking , hey I have some skills I should build my own Kit .
    Well my hat is off to Matt McEntegart , he is one seriously talented dude !!!! the master of foam and creativity .
    I picked the 350Z because I am a Nissan guy and Matt's car was based on the G35 , there are lots of doner cars , plus the Zed is excellent bang for the buck , it's wheel base is 8 inches less than the G35 .
    The plan is to build the kit so the average guy can install it with basic tools and skills .

    Getting started I built a dust collection system that spins 360 degrees because as we all know fiberglass dust is no fun , next was to build some wooden wheels to simulate the new wide ones to help with clearances and fender lips . the rear hatch and window is deleted and replaced with a smaller trunk lid .

    Hi - there is a tutorial post here regarding posting pictures using the built-in hosting - you can also use the "upload attachment" button below where you write comments/posts.

    The best way I've found for posting pics is to use a photo hosting site like Imgur and paste the links into your posts.

    Hi everyone
    I am building a complete new body for the Nissan 350 Z
    I have and been at it for almost two years and can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel .
    I am still trying to navigate this site . I want to start a build diary , and don't have time to learn this site I find it very frustrating . ( I have been on many car sites and posted builds before )
    I have over a thousand pic's of the build so far and would like to share , just need to figure out how to post them .
