  1. 240Z IMSA Street Flares Fiberglass Bond Mold On

    So the solution here is to buy them from me instead!
  2. 240Z IMSA Street Flares Fiberglass Bond Mold On

    Further adding to the mystery, I also found this page: http://www.showcars-bodyparts.com/240z.html They don't look like the "IMSA fiberglass flares" - look better IMO. They are closest to the "fiberglass street flares" but it's still not quite right (also those don't seem to have a rear counterpart). My flares extend more on the legs which i think would make a better fit and easier to blend in. My best guess is that they are MSA. The pictures I'm finding are a bit old and the ones I have may be a more recent design with more meat on them for improved ease of installation, or perhaps the ones in the pictures were just trimmed too much.
  3. 240Z IMSA Street Flares Fiberglass Bond Mold On

    Found this post that I believe they look like installed: There's another FS ad on here that look similar with a test fit shown: I think mine are more like the top image because they have the more subtle lip. The bottom image shows a more vertical flat lip. Also the transition into the body line is more aggressive (higher angle) - mine should blend into the body a bit more natural looking like in the top finished product and the back bottom corners extend further to match the rear quarter panel edge. Again I can't be 100% sure because it is hard to compare how they look in hand with how they look installed (bonded, blended, and painted). Hope that helps!

    Sorry no, they have never been installed. I would have posted pictures of them on another car but can't guarantee they will look the same

    Bump for $200?
  6. Bought these for my Z with 315 rear tires, but then sold it without ever installing them. They should fit any 1970-1978 and are the bond on type with plenty of lip to blend them into the body seamlessly. If I remember correctly, they are about 1" wider than the BAMF ZG bolt on flares (which are what I had). If you want to bring your Z by we can test fit them to see. Don't remember the exact name for the style of these flares or how much I paid for them. If anyone can pinpoint it that might help me out some. Looking for $300

    SOLD

    I did change the wires around according to a diagram online. Perhaps they only work with an R34 ecu or something
  9. 1972 240z RB26DETT

    Indeed, I was thinking of hanging onto it until that day came, but need to cut my losses for now, no money or space to put it with three other cars.

    I've taken close ups of the damage just so we're all on the same page. The initial pictures might have been a bit deceiving - to be clear there is actual damage to the body as shown below. Also by request I have taken pictures of the suspected rust areas - I bought the car with this paint on it ten years ago and could tell that there were a couple bondo patches. The passenger side one is sound but the driver side one is slowly coming loose as seen in the photo below.

    Sad day guys, I've been putting this off for a little while but it has to go. I'm sure I could get more if I part it out but I'd rather take a hit and get it over with all at once. I guess if I get no action on it then I guess I'll go down that road. As you can see it took a hit to the front right corner. I'm not much of a sheet metal guy so I figured it would be easier just to transplant my mods to a host that's already in better condition, however I don't have the funds or the time anymore. Perhaps someone else will want it for the engine swap, or to repair, or to part out, etc. In case you can't tell by the pictures, it has the GTS 5 speed. Rota RB wheels. The rear tires have tons of life, the fronts are shot due to poor alignment. The front right bamf flare was damaged a bit. The car runs and drives (intercooler is damaged on the bottom but not compromised), I actually drove a 30 mile commute for about a month while I was looking for something else. R200 3.700 CLSD with 300zxt CVs and the AZCar mustache bar. Techno Toy Tuning coilovers about a year ago. More recent poly kit all the way around. I bead blasted and painted the A-arms, struts etc. that I took off as I went. Front and rear sway bars. Lone Mountain disc brake conversion. 3" magnaflow exhaust if that does it for you. Engine runs strong and powerful like you'd expect. The only only only thing is that the mafswent out and I bought z32 replacements on the cheap because I've read they work perfectly. Well they don't. Your options include buying original mafs (or some other newer style that is guaranteed to work right), or switch to an EMS that doesn't need them, which is what I was about to do before this happened. Like I said, it still runs and drives, but the problem with these mafs is they seem to starve the engine at high flow. Cruising up to 70mph they work fine, if you try to gun it, they don't let you. It has a stage 2 ACT clutch and the original resurfaced flywheel, which wasn't doing it for me. Every once in a while it felt like the clutch slipped at WOT, guess 350ft-lbs wasn't enough. I have a brand new stage 3 setup ready to go in. Autometer gauges in oem pods. Uncracked center console and heater controls panel (later backlit model) Fiberglass door panels. The car has been collecting dust at work for two months but I've been running it periodically. I'm debating on whether to throw in the sound system with it or not because I'm not sure how desired it is to others vs how much I like it and could transplant it to another car. Alpine deck with ipod integration and Imprint tuning. Two amps (one under each seat) although I never installed the sub because I didn't have time to make the custom box I wanted in the spare tire well - although I have the sub too, never used also collecting dust. Those pioneer 6x9s are my favorite, but one of them has a loose wire internally and goes in/out every time you go over a big bump. Please ask questions, you'll get honest answers. Obviously I'm not going to ship the car somewhere, and I wouldn't recommend driving hundreds of miles with no hood or bumper, but I can trailer it a reasonable distance if that seals the deal. Also let me know if there is anything else you want a picture/closeup of. Best thing is probably just come see the car for yourself though. I feel like $7000 is the sum of all parts not including what's usable in terms of trim and body pieces. Perhaps some of you will say this isn't much because doing an RB swap alone costs twice that, others will surely say this is too much because it's a salvage, I say I'd be content to get $6000 for the whole car, as sad as that sounds after having invested such a great deal (I don't even want to add it up or I'll surely cry). Note: A couple small things I forgot to mention: the driver side window fell off the track so it doesn't roll up. Also it has a viper alarm and keyless entry installed (failsafe ignition cut with door, hood, and hatch pins, and a hidden killswitch to the ecu).
  13. Any suggestions on where to buy RB install kits???

    "You get what you pay for" only goes so far. Their mounts aren't made out of gold are they? A novice welder can make his own mounts, mckinney charges way too much for how simple they are. IIRC there's a guy on here that sells billet aluminum mounts for less than half the price.

  15. VW 1.9TDI Swap

    Sounds super easy! We could go on all day about the reliability of european cars, but at the end of the day it's just about personal preference. That said, I fly in a twin engine mercedes, so if you want to talk about trusting a continent...
