    Door Handle Bumpers and Gas Door Bumpers

    It just keeps the door handle from clanging if you let it go. It's basically a silencer.

    250 GTO/Vella Rosa dash

    I'm not interested but it looks like it could be a good option for someone who has a bad dash and wanting to have a racepac digital race dash. https://www.jegs.com/i/RacePak/806/25DSIQ3/10002/-1?CAWELAID=230006180037964817&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=47430200350&CATCI=pla-324540406200&CATARGETID=230006180040342498&cadevice=c&gclid=CjwKCAjw0ujYBRBDEiwAn7BKt3UsRTa7LzHGZ9Da5BxZrdanpNCsZik6VzCb1YBj6Z3jF5qMWWBnQxoCIzgQAvD_BwE

    250 GTO/Vella Rosa dash

    Does this install onto the original dash frame? Would it fit a stock Z if someone was wanting a custom dash?

    What do you mean "give it tension"?
  6. I left the ground connection on and reused it, and also fished the power wire with the inline fuse all the way to the battery, and reused all that too. That let me use the proper fuse. It's fairly easy to pull the Saturn columns. On 1 of the 2 cars I pulled them from I lucked out as someone had pulled the engine already, so everything was in the open. The pullapart in Baton Rouge only charged me $45 each with the steering wheel, airbag, everything still attached. Down here I don't thin many people were using these, at least at the time. I've seen several and never saw one missing the column.

    Way to get right into it!
  8. Make sure you fit everything in place before you do any tack welding. Someone else's may vary from mine somewhat.

    Rear Hatch Sill Replace it or wait it out.

    Since thats not really a structural piece, I used body panel glue will a few spot welds all around.

    74 260z 5.3 resto mod

    Are you going with a fuel cell? If not, I have an extra spare tire well in perfect condition.
  12. I used ones from restoration specialties. Part # 11-144. $2.25 each instead of the 8 each the Z suppliers sell, so $9 for the car instead of $32 for the tiniest pieces of rubber. http://stores.restorationspecialties.com/11-144-bum/ 4249 may also work, but I didn't try those.
  13. Mine has about 1.5 inches. My ride height has been level for a few years, just don't like the slack in the front and preload in the rear. I think if I go to 300- 350 in the rear it will help with that, plus keep the car a little flatter on tight turns.
  14. I got the TTT Front and rears. It was originally 300r 250f. I swapped them around because I felt everywhere was too soft. With 300f the front feels and handles much better. The ride is good. The car weighs 2900. I think TTT may have cut my struts wrong. With no preload and just the springs touching with no slop, the front is several inches higher than the rear with either springs on either end. Since they originally sent 50 pound heavier rears, I was wondering if I should go to 350 in the rear since 300 feels about perfect in my car.
