    Z32 Parts interchange question

    Z32 Parts interchange question

    So I'm usaully on here for S30 240zs as those are my favs and i have a few, but today I could not turn down the opportunity to pick up a 92 Z32 Twin Turbo. It's in bad shape but for $400 what do you want. I was searching the site and couldn't seem to find what I was looking for. Is there a list of some sort that someone has put together for parts that interchange in the Z32s?. This car will need alot of random parts from body panels and spoilers to ashtrays and mirrors. If I find a Z32 at a junk yard that is a non-turbo which parts are the same as my car? 90-95 .There are so many parts and hard to list them all but was wondering if alot of them interchange and are the same part number. Like I need fenders, a spoiler, front bumper, wheels. This is my first Z32.. Thanks in advance

    Is this the correct door for my Early 71 240Z

    Here we are months later and I'm just now getting around to working this door, it's coming off for bodywork as I will be painting the car this winter. If the door needs shims where do they go? With the hinge bolts all loose at the body I can lift the door up and down, forward and back and I have the fenders off. Looks as if there is still a bit of a gap at the back of the door to quarter when pulling the door as far back as I can. Do you guys ever shim at the hinge to door location?

    Series 1 240z front bumper. Fix it or scap it?

    Yeah I have 73 240 also and the bracket and mounts are different. That bumper only has one small dent in it, I thought about swapping it out and welding in the brackets to the correct place, but that could be a bit of work and I'm not entirely sure if the actual bumper is the exact same size or not. (The bumper laying on the ground is the one in early pictures up above before I cleaned it up, removed the paint, and hammered out the big dents and creases.

    Series 1 240z front bumper. Fix it or scap it?

    I want to put this ride in a car show next summer. Very few shops where I live. There was one shop but when I called him about it he didn't even want to take a look at the bumper. Are 72 bumpers different? Going to keep an eye out. Maybe try some shops out of town.
  6. The front bumper that came on my car was beat up pretty bad I was able to hammer out a lot of the big dents and get it as straight as possible however you can still see Hammer marks on the bumper. this will be going on a restored 240 with a new paint job ..I would like the bumper to be in good shape not sure if there is a way to repair this or send to somebody who can do that or is it better to just scrap it and pay the high dollar price for a new front bumper..

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    I have had 12 S30 Z car's in the past, but this is my first early car and I plan on keeping her a long time, but you never know when life makes you sell things you don't want too. I think a nice re spray will go along way. Dents and dings all over the car currently being worked out but not much rust issues thank goodness. Should come out great even though it's not a full paint redue. Got the car 3 years ago for next to nothing, so a nice paint job should make a world of difference in the value of what I got into it. But at the end of the day it's not for sale. Going to be my prize ride. It's looking like 904 might be the paint..

    Series 1 240z paint color options/opinions

    Oops Seattle, I may have posted in the wrong spot... Rturbo, the original color was blue. Not a big fan of that color to be honest. The car will have a nice paint job but it will be done with the motor in it. So engine compartment will probably be cleaned and rattle canned gloss black over the old blue. Might look nice with white and black. As the interior is black also..
  10. I have a early 71 240z 12/70. After this body work she will be getting some fresh paint. I know that the color is entirely up to me and what I prefer but I was wondering what you guys thought. So here's my situation , I like the Avacado Green color but according to "keeping it correct" the Avacado color didn't come out till Sept 71. I also like the kilamajaro white color that was available in many years but green would be my first choice. This car is not bone stock to start with, I have a spoiler and front valance, 5 speed trans, aftermarket rear carpet, headers, 3" exhaust, coil overs,triple webber carbs, electronic ignition. Will I ever sell my car? I hope not.. But if I had to, a die hard collector could always change back everything that I added to the car but the paint would not be correct. Back in the day these cars were found in the junk yard and abandoned and people would spray them any color they want but these days they are bringing big money and I'm wondering if should just go with the White paint and keep it a series 1 paint option. I'm sure there will be mixed thoughts on this coming from the guys who could care less and fully customize their rides and the collectors that need every nut and bolt correct.

  12. Question 1... I have a early 71 240Z that I'm restoring a bit. I want to get it in the paint shop soon but seems there is always some obstacle. My car was slightly hit in the front right headlight bucket area from the Prior Owner I guess. I was getting around to pulling panels and noticed my right (Passenger side) front bumper bracket sits about an inch lower than the right and the metal looks to be slightly caved in near the passenger side of the radiator. Is this considered (Frame Straightening) or is it more of just pulling out the sheet metal a bit? I can almost move it out with my bare hand by pulling on it. Is there a proper way to do this like with a come along and a tree or is this something I should pay to have straightend at a shop? Question 2. I have a set of doors that need work. One is rusted at the bottom and showing a few small rust holes but the body lines creases are straight in the door, then I have another door that is rust free but the body line creases are bashed in pretty bad and it would need to be reformed with filler. In your opinions, is it better to repair the door with rust and good lines or repair the rust free door that is bashed in? Or I guess option 3 keep looking to buy a good set of doors? Question 3. I just picked up a 73 240z running parts car that only has one small dent in the front bumper as opposed to my 71 bumper that is mangled. Is it possible to use a 73 outer bumper on my 71, I want to keep it original but not sure if they are the same thing, I know the brackets are different but I was wondering if it was possible to separate the chrome bumper from the bracket and change the mounts some how. Figure it's good to ask here before experimentin lol.
  13. I will be taking my Z into paint shop soon after I get some of this body work taking care of at home. I have been really torn between the race look and keeping this series 1 car all stock. But I think Im going to add a spoiler and have it painted. I also have a fiberglass front valance that I may install and have painted as well. Are the BRE spoilers ready to paint out of the box or is a bunch of prep work needed?
  14. Also do running those wheels require mods?
  15. So Andy's has the same one cheaper? or a better one made of a different material? I was wondering if this Xenon spoiler was any good..They did not have a good picture of it. Also I have never owned a spoiler on any of my Zs so not sure which one is a good one.. I definitely do not want huge spoiler. And thanks for the info on the wheels
