  1. I've got a manual 73 240Z that didn't have a center console. Well, I've found one, but don't have the bolts. Do you have this or can you tell me the size?? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ed
  2. I'm not sure if you can help, but here goes. I've got a manual shift 73 240Z that didn't come with a center console. I've found the console, but don't have the bolts. Do you possibly have these or can you tell me the bolt size? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ed
  3. I've got a 1973 240z with an aftermarket air dam front end. This change required the removal of the stock turn signals. I'm trying to adapt a 1977/78 280z grille and turn signal assemblies. The grill fits perfect and I have the turn signal assemblies, but it seems they must fit into a separate housing and the housing attaches to the grille; I just can't be sure. I can't find any information that would guide me on the best way to "fit" the turn signals into this application. Is there anyone out there that has made this swap? Any guidance on how I can adapt this would be great; I'm stumped. Thanks in advance!! We can fabricate a solution to this problem, but I was hoping to avoid or at least make this task easier. I've tried to locate a 77/78 280 locally so I could see how these things are installed, but I'm not having much luck. Could someone talk me through this and maybe even send a couple pics of what this looks like??

    Cracked Center Console Help

    That sounds like a great idea. Do you know where I can get the ABS plastic welding rods?? Here's a couple newbie questions. When using the rods, would I weld from the front surface instead of the back? I'm assuming, but do I apply heat to the rod and have it melt into the crack? It seems like it would smoke like crazy. Any other plastic welding hints you can give me?? By the way, I want to share with you guys; my 73Z will be coming out soon; can't wait. I'm 47 and have wanted this since college It's got a brand new LS3 "hot cam", T56 into R200 3.54 with added clutches, 300ZX turbo half shafts w/ offset Rota wheels, 9" up front and 9.5" in rear so I'm running 245 x 17 front and 275 x 17 rear. I've had square tubing welded to the frame rails to handle the power. It's in paint and body now...Stage 3 front air dam, cowl induction hood and fender flairs...all black. I'll post some pics when it finally rolls out. I still have some work to do in the interior though...

    Cracked Center Console Help

    Guys...thanks very much!! You've saved the day. The pics look great! At this point, I'm on a pretty tight budget. I've got a dash cap too and have not looked under it yet to see the damage. I'm not mechanically inclined, but am willing to take a stab at it since this approach looks great.

    Cracked Center Console Help

    I've got a cracked center console out of a 1973 240Z and am looking for any advise on how to repair it. I'll apologize in advance if this is a stupid question; I've searched just about every post in the Interior section and cannot find a thing that will help. I'll also consider a reasonably priced replacement if anyone has one. Any advise would be greatly appreciated
