  1. Vacaville Velo Rossa

    nice progress!
  2. Yeah, it looks great.
  3. Turn Signal Issues

    I don't know what trouble shooting you have done so far. Did you check/replace blinker relay? Did you check turn signal switch itself(combo switch)? Isn't it worn out connection point?
  4. Electric Mod is done. Install Moded Autometer Tachometer with shift change light Install Alpine stereo with power amp Install Power lock Install Power Window Install Viper Alarm with auto window roll up Remove shunt add relays add fusebox for constant add fusebox for IGN add relay and fuse for the starter add relay and fuse for head lights Remove transistor Swap ammeter to voltmeter Swap to 280zx dizzy Swap to GM CS-144 alternator Swap interior light bulb to blue LED

    I put 280zx booster for 15/16 master cylinder onto my 280z.
  6. It gets softer. I wiped out Vaseline and put it on to the center console. The clips are so hard to put them on. Especially, leather is thicker than fake leather. But, the leather boots cover is too long, Shift nob will be hidden... I removed it and compare with the original one. It is way too long. I cut it sort. Now it looks better.
  7. I purchase cheap leather outer shift cover from ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Shift-Boot-Real-Leather-For-Datsun-240z-260z-280z-Manual-Black/181378028504?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 I was not soft, not flexible. I learned that putting Vaseline and leave it night will soften leather. So, I put it all over it and leave it night.
  8. I decided to use 240SX rubber parts. trace the frame and cut it out. It has two layers. Since mine is short shifter, it does not touch the frame at all. But it has some gap. I end up adding original shift boot on the top of 240sx boot cover.
  9. Thanks Nigel, that’s great solution and 10 years warrenty comes with!
  10. Now installing shifter. I swap with B&M short shifter. B&M shifter is so solid made. There is spring and retainer parts. I forgot the order to put them in. I found the thread about B&M shifter assembly. This is really helpful for me to put them back. http://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=281601 The shifter has a white bushing and that is SO tight! I need to use hummer to tap it in. Once bushing is inserted, it's not hard to screw in. Looking good! Now I need to think about the cover.... Original rubber cover won't fit.
  11. No, I since mine is 280z with R200, I need to use shorten 280z drive shaft.
  12. Thanks seattlejester I combine the IGN line to Charge warning lamp and Voltmeter. Here is 77 280z schematic. '75 280z does not have IGN Relay.
  13. Thanks NewZed! I will test it out tomorrow. I found one more mistake.There were two IGN SW in previous schematic. Here is updated version.
  14. Thanks Tim! Here is the final result. Is Voltmeter always showing current voltage, even though I did not insert key? I'm afraid of drain battery..
