  1. where to get OEM parts

    Zcarsource is your best bet like Miles said. I wouldn't recommend them for anything that you don't actually care about being OEM though, since their stuff is OEM and EVERYTHING is priced as such. Gets expensive for more basic things that are as good or better from basic aftermarket suppliers.

    Some nice progress! I'm assuming you got the painted covers idea from the Mr. Vengeance Z? I remember you mentioning that when we were talking cheap paint jobs that didn't look terrible haha. That shop looks neat! If they ever have another meetup of some kind let me know. I'd love to go check out their stuff. It might be a nice way to get my Z up here faster if I have a safe place to put it. Currently I just have too many sitting at my place here. I have the G37, the hardbody, and my 240 parts car. Need to finish stripping out the parts car so I can clear out some space.
  3. 2009 WRX drivetrain to 280z

    I posted these exact links on another topic by a young guy wanting to do the GTR swap into his Z. Thought I was having some deja vu and only thought I posted them because I thought it was in this same topic for a second. Had to go back and check my own comments haha.
  4. The benefits are getting rid of the unreliable external voltage regulator and higher amps. You'll end up replacing your alternator less often, and when you do, it's one less item to worry about since external regulators are gonna get more pricey.
  5. Man, that forum upgrade didn't retain any of the formatting in my quote. Hopefully you still caught most of my responses to your questions! I went back and formatted my responses to make them easier to read between everything regardless. Like az240z said, popping the hood helps with any heat buildup. I also found a vented 280z hood for mine which helps even more if you're concerned, but it's less of an issue on EFI models even with a turbo.
  6. Website not loading?

    Sweet! Glad I noticed something and could help

    Make sure you don't have a bookmark or new tab page directing you straight to www.hybridz.org. I was getting a 404 error going through my new tab page. It needs to be forums.hybridz.org now to direct you to the main page here.
  8. Make sure no matter what you can do you can stop it. I'd refresh the brakes. I just bought all Centric brand brake parts on rockauto. All stock replacements. Front bearings are really easy to do while you're replacing the rotors. http://www.xenonzcar.com/s30/fsm.html Be sure to download the FSM for the car. Very useful for basic repairs and knowing what weight to use and to troubleshoot any problems you find. http://atlanticz.ca/zclub/techtips/ All of the most common minor upgrades and fixes for stock configurations are available on Atlantic Z and even some that a lot of people always ask about. I would definitely look into the 280zx internally regulated alternator upgrade. More amps, bolts in, only need to splice two wires, easier to work with.

    I'm here unless my thread is unusually active haha.

    Looks sweet! I love the Mustang. "Abomination" written on the valve cover is great haha. American muscle fanatics will hate on it, but everyone forgets that they originally came with an inline six. Let me know when the next cruise you do is. I'd love to come down in the infiniti.
  11. Progress on my insane VQ35HR 240Z project

    You should definitely do this. Faded butterscotch just screams "old used sports car" Mark, I'm with you on the idea. I've always been a huge fan of understated style.
  12. Held off on welding the back end because I want to get it fixed properly which will involve redoing the rear lower quarters. 280's had extra metal to form a sort of V shape meeting at the bottom of the rear lower quarters and the rear valence. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but this doesn't seem to be structural and the 240s didn't have this. It's mostly rotted away so next time I'm home I'll just be chopping all that off and putting in extra metal between the rear deck and the rear quarters parallel to the ground to seal off the inside just like the 240 (at least the series 1 parts car) has. On my way back up to Washington I got a full AC system from a facebook datsun parts member while I was passing through Boise! I only needed the compressor, but I'll probably run it next summer and cruise around a bit more comforably while I finish up metal work and hopefully paint. Will probably keep the L series with AC for the time being until I really build up the rest of the car to hold up to whatever I decide to throw in the engine bay in the future. Here's a couple random pictures from my last week in Utah, including a rock chuck (?) that was wandering around the garage and seemed to enjoy the Datsun. Hasn't been a month and I already have more parts ready to go for next time I'm home.
  13. 240Z Pro-Touring Build

    Ohhhh! Nice to see you've made some progress at least moving into the new space. JD told me about his rotisserie idea last time I saw him. Sounds pretty useful and straight forward
  14. Looking for full interior for 72 240z

    I have an almost complete 240z interior from a series 1 minus the center console. Shoot me an offer. could have the vinyl pieces and plastic panels.
  15. 280Z Garage Sale

    I noticed the washer fluid bottle and undertray in your albums. Are those for sale as well?
