I just got this car it needs loads of love .. from what I can tell it needs front and rear bumpers front and rear fenders and full engine service. Needs a lot of parts. It's smoky and the chassis had been damaged before .. it's been sitting for a long time and I just started it today the engine is ruff and from what I could tell there is a funky smell coming out the exhaust.

Congrats on the purchase, I hope you got a good deal! Sounds like it will need a lot of body work, but you need to make sure that the engine is good, how many miles? I recommend giving it a tune up, spark plugs, oil change, coolant differential and transmission fluid, start fresh, you don’t know when or if these services have been done. If you can get it on a lift that’s going to help see if there are any fluid leaks and how it looks under the car. I couldn’t tell you how to upload pictures, you probably know someone that does though, trying to walk you through it by messaging will certainly not be easy(at least not for me). I don’t recommend starting and running the vehicle until it at least has clean oil. Good luck!

If your Z is a dark silver, that color was called Silverstone (K51 paint code) when it was introduced in 2003. Also, posting pics won't help much, it's better to establish some knowledgable Z contacts locally. You might be better off listing your location, and seeing if anyone on this board is nearby who might help.
