    Camaro gas tank mount

    Can't help there... closest I've seen to what you're describing is someone welded another piece of 1x2 at an angle from the top mounts. Not much difference between that and what I assume you have other than creating a more fixed point for the "front side" of the fuel tank to sit against and creating short straps.

    This was pretty funny

    Regular Car Review has been part of my Monday routine for years now. This one was pretty good, mostly because there were SO many of them and so many had such identical mods haha.

    Camaro gas tank mount

    I did the same thing. Going with an original tank now, but if I'd kept the camaro tank I'd just cut whatever you have just outside of where your tank straps/mounts are then weld that to new pieces that run side to side. Essentially you're just shortening the piece you already have mounted to the car then running it to new pieces that go side to side so any impacts don't instantly mess with your tank mounts and cause serous problems.

    Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Not directly related, but are you posting your progress on that bike anywhere?

    1975 280z Part Out, bushings, and more

    Do you happen to have the fuel tank? Is that available?

    HybridZ PNW Auto-x Day

    Would love to! Highly unlikely that I'll be able to do it this summer since I just got that new shell haha.

    Z31T axle swap CAN fit

    Clarifying one piece of info.... aside from the axles being thinner, the Rock Auto CVs would basically just allow you to weld in the adapters, grind down the stub axle, and bold them right in?

    HybridZ PNW Auto-x Day

    Depending on how things go this summer, I might be interested in the September dates
  9. Like others have said, from the doors back just about everything is different. The only thing you can really use at the rear is the lights, suspension, diff, fuel tank, vapor tank, filler neck, filler door... basically anything that's not a body or interior panel. Of the stuff you've mentioned, the dash, front seats, and gauges would be the same.

    TRZ body kit?

  11. I got it. If you quote any part of anyone's post they'll receive a notification. You can also tag now like this @wrenchtech
  12. One of the best. I love the molded flares and the subtle approach you've taken to the exterior appearance.
  13. They have two others that are more common, one with a blunt nose, and one with a G nose style front
  14. That was an old rendering for the Carbon Signal kit https://www.facebook.com/pg/carbonsignal1/photos/?tab=album&album_id=942013415847778

    Measurements for CD009 and R154 and trans tunnel

    That mounting point on the top side of the piece I gave you is the original fuse box and the smaller side farther to the passenger side should be the cigarette lighter
  16. If you don't get a response you can give me what you have from the bolt holes to that piece, and I can add that measurement to another from firewall to the cut we made.

    Ms3x install

    Glad you're working out the kinks, I have the same IAC setup going into mine when I get to installing MS3X.... should hopefully be able to learn from what you did and not suffer quite as much haha

    Cold air intake yes or no?

    Your air intake is already a cold air intake if you're running the stock one. If you want more induction noise and maybe less restriction then I guess you could replace the original air box with a cone filter, but realistically the change will be minimal since the stock position is already in front of the radiator in the coldest place you could put it.

    1977 280z Alternator upgrade

    That's correct. L should only come one when the key is turned, and S to 12v. Is that the right plug on your top picture? Been a little over a year since I did my upgrade, can't remember all the finer details.

    Phantom Grip Pass or Fail

    I don't have personal experience with it, but most reviews I've read say don't bother. Better than nothing, but not really worth the trouble and cost if you're tearing open your differential anyway. You're better off with an OBX unit. Some light reading: https://mycomputerninja.com/?p=440
  22. Some of you might have seen my post about wanting to buy this car. I've been a huge fan of Z cars since I was about 12 years old. I finally had the opportunity to buy a 280z at a ridiculously low price and I went for it. It has a clean title and an engine that'll start and that was about it. For those reading, the intent of this car is not to build a show quality car, or a performance monster; just me trying to apply all the things I've learned and been reading about for the last 7 years of trolling around online and staring at build threads and S30 pictures. It's also a learning experience for me, since I bought it dirt cheap and it has some rust issues and all that jazz I'm not afraid to tear into stuff. Pulled it home with my dad's tiny little Toyota pickup he uses as a daily to get to work about 3 minutes from home. This is the first problem I have to address with the car. And probably the only reason I got the car for $300 (Some people lack both patience to do things right, and the resources to pay someone else to do it right) The spare wheel well was cut out (very poorly) and a different tank was installed off some unknown car from a local junkyard. They didn't even bother to get one with a feeder line on the side, just went with what they got and left the fuel inlet hanging to the side. On the bright side, they did wire a nice Walbro fuel pump to it. Unfortunately that was jimmy-rigged too. The cables were attached after the fact and went straight to the battery and a switch in the cabin. The setup works for running the engine, but it's totally unusable. I'm not too bummed though, I'll probably be picking and buying the fuel tank from my brother-in-law's F-body Camaro. I removed the fuel pump switch and wired it to the stock connections. Worked perfectly and engine ran smooth. No idea why they didn't just do that the first time. Much easier. I removed all the old breather hoses from the mystery tank to clean things up, cut some of the excessively long fuel lines and started properly cutting the spare wheel area (on the bottom right of the pic you can see how much metal was left hanging down) so I could rig up the tank as it is while I work out other things in the engine until I get my hands on the Camaro tank and do a proper job. Pardon the long post that was catch-up/initial thoughts on the car. More to come from today's work in the next post.
  23. @rturbo 930: It's the $100 series 1 shell I picked up. Pretty much just got it for the steering wheel and early style turn signals/tailights. Never would have picked it up if it cost me more. I could probably chop of the lower rear quarters. They seem to be in decent shape. You'd have to give me some sort of way to ID where you want me to cut from. Send me a PM to remind me to get you some pictures of the condition when I get the chance. @seattlejester: It'd definitely be nice to have some help taking some stuff apart, especially since my tool selection is limited. I probaby have enough room in my small storage room to put everything in, even if it's not ideal. Whenever you have a free night or weekend let me know, although weekends are usually my only time to see my girlfriend so she'd have to join in on the chaos haha.
  24. I'm all for that. I doubt the thing will sell, unless I basically give it away. the exterior looks half decent and some of the panels could still sell, but the floors and that passenger firewall area where the battery tray was chopped are so far gone that they're practically non-existent. Probably more valuable in scrap and for the bits and pieces I can use to help friends with their own projects. Do you have anything I could chop stuff with? I still need to build up more of my tools up here and I don't have any big cutting tools.
