gauges are on the decal sheet, Good.
I also hate kit chrome. This kit appears to be left side driver. Were they all made like this or is this an American/Euro import version?

KSO,
This is the American import version, just like I owned. The Japanese version was the "Fairlady Z" and was right hand steering. I also have that kit which is produced by Hasegawa. I'll build it one day.

Thanks for the review Hermon. It makes me want to find one and paint it orange.

Thanks for an excellent review Hermon.
Wish all kits had gauge decals.

Nice review. I had one of these only it was the 260. Routinely used to eat camaros for lunch. Got a little too sqirrely with it one night and put it into a guard rail. sad day as it never ran right after that. Sold it to some friends who gutted it and made a rally car our of it. Used the cash to purchase my next car, a 1970 Chevelle SS... genuine, not a clone. Talk about more than I could handle. My dad forced me to sell it as he didn't want to pay for a funeral.. Again, nice review. "Q"

Glad you liked it Matthew. Must be something about Z's. I also wrecked/totaled my first one when I was 16. Luckily my after school job was at a garage so I found myself a donar car, built the engine including 6pack webber carbs. Yup, won my share of money back then racing Mustangs and Cameros..........damn, I'm gettin' old.

This kit's not of 2002. Is one of the first auto kits I`ve made at age 10-12, and I`m actually 46 !!!
