    Fenders

    yes, showcars has terrible rep, i found out first hand. and aftermaket sheet metal always seems thinner than OEM. my aftermarket fender will get waves in the top from people resting their hands on it. (i know, people shouldnt be leaning on my fender but it happens and my OEM fender handles it). if you can find a good used fender the metal will be thick and your fitment should be best compared to aftermarket. but if you cant then you do what you gotta do

    Should I buy a 79 280zx

    Obviously it is gonna need alot of work if its $500. And it might not be worth ever making it a serious build but if it has potential to run and drive and you just wanna play around with something, what better can u do with $500 and have a rear wheel drive platform...a long as you know you might double your investment and invest some labor just to get it kinda reliable toy then have at it
  5. i think you will be in good shape "IF" you make sure those things are good that i mentioned. if it has more rust, which i think you will find it does, or if the engine isnt running right, then its not $4k car in my opinion. and it would have to be tip-top shape to be worth $6k. like i said, the 280zx is not a very valuable car if its not a turbo model
  6. make sure its solid and get the engine issue solved. if you have either of those issues then it might be a Project Car. best of luck. if it checks out, then you will have a nice fair weather ride
  7. your not really giving enough info to put a value on it. you listed a couple problems that make it sound like its going to have more issues when you really dig in. what i can tell you is the 280zx is more of the odd ball of z's so they are not all that valuable unless they are turbo models or in really great shape. that particular engine setup has alot going on so figuring out engine issues is tricky. check underneath, they are very known for floor rot and "frame rails" like to rot from underneath seating area and back towards the rear. also the rear quarter panel at the bottom in front of the wheel also rots. i say make sure the body is solid, when you find rust there is usually more and can easily turn into a nightmare, and tell him to get engine fixed. you "might" be ok with $4k if all that checks out. and also all depends on what you wanna do with it. its a great driver when things are sorted out and has alot of comforts like pwr windows and a/c and pwr steering . there is not as much aftermarket parts for it as all the other models . good luck, let us know what you do

    Custom 280ZX Hood Vents

    my first thought also but the pocket they sit in is pretty shallow. dont think you will get much depth if you go down n with the vents. my 2 cents would be to make it a single raised vent kinda like how they do on top of fenders to release wheel well pressure. the one you developed looks exactly like rear window louvers, which if you have them and like them then your spot on. i dont care for them so thats were my dislike comes in....i will say though im very happy to see someone doing something with the s130's. so keep doing what your doing!!!
  9. evasive motorsports has a wide selection. i got blue forged alum lugnuts from them and they have been just fine for at least 5 years now. ive been drag racing, and roadcoarse racing with them on. just check torque a few times after installing them.

    Ls1 77 280z

    that looks amazing, what color is that? if that old yellow car only knew it had to wait this long to end up looking like that. great job
  11. i looked at using those headers cause they use them on newer z/28's so they must make power. i decided not to cause the primary tubes can be real small at different points(like 1-1/2in). i went with these billy boat c5 shorty headers (1-5/8 primaries). im supposed to be around 440whp but ended up at 405whp. my tuner said if i had 1 3/4in or even 1-7/8 primaries and long tubes that i could do alot better. i just dont have the room in my s130. basically with my ls6 intake and dart heads, im getting air in, just not getting it out. every winter i think i need to do something about it, then spring comes and i take it for a rip and realize its got plenty of power..i think you will be happy with those, they have to flow really good if they run them on z/28's
  12. Rock auto worked fine for mine...
  13. Assuming your master cyl is an upgraded one based on all the other mods you have. You probably are confident that's not the problem...I'd say start with the check valve (easier fix) then there isn't many other options than the booster....when my booster went, it was after sitting all winter and the first time I got in it the pedal just fell to the floor and I ended up with brake fluid In the booster ...good lock, let us know what you find.hope this helps, I didn't see anyone else chiming in so figured I'd give you some kind of input
