  2. Replacing dash with dash cover

    I just finished restoring my dash using the Polyvance stuff. I got most of the stuff for maybe 30% less from a company called urethane supply products, or something like that. You can search google just using the part numbers from the Polyvance stuff and you'll find this other company. It is clearly the same product with a different label. I think they had everything but the flextex. I'm very happy with how it turned out, but only time will tell how long it lasts. If you take the repair route, check very carefully for other areas that are very brittle, or spider cracks. Repair these areas too, or they will surely crack soon.
  3. LS1 240Z AC

    Resurrecting this from the past. I just received a Vintage Air Compact unit. I didn't realize there is no fresh air supply. Looks like I might be able to install the OEM fresh make up air damper, if I take it off the old heater fan motor. It would be pretty hard to get it to plumb directly into the Vintage Air unit, but would at least supply a source of fresh air to draw from when open. Anyone else do anything else like this?
  4. That is correct, they will not work in a 240z. At least not in my '71. Sorry I don't know all the differences between years but the '71 pods bolt in completely differently than what you see in the video Skillard put out on how to install these.
  5. Sold - These are brand new, never used, never mounted, brackets for mounting 4 1/2 Speedhut gauges in your 280z. I bought them hoping they would work to help instal my gauges in my 240z, but I was wrong. I paid $55.05 with shipping, and will ship them to you for $45. So, it's basically free shipping to you. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Joe
  6. Looking for one of the smaller gauge pods. Wanting the pod in the front and the case in the case in the back, as well as the mounting bracket. Don't need the actual gauge parts, will be stripping them out anyway to make room for aftermarket gauges. Looking for what is pictured below, which is out of a '71. I don't know if later years are different.
  7. Sounds like fun. And yet more LSx S30's in Norcal.
  8. I ran my cold air intake tubing on the passenger side, so that I'll still have fresh air on my side. What the passenger doesn't know, wont hurt 'em.
  9. Seems like there would be a lot more spring, dampener and brake options
  10. How do you mean to beef up the front mounts?
  11. Yes, they are really nice. I had a set, but sold them as they weren't wide enough.
  12. Has anybody tried these flares yet? These look like the same as the ones as the that Japan Garage was selling, but since they are no longer, I need a new source. http://www.fiberglassmafia.com/store/p9/Wide_ZG_Fender_Flares.html
  13. Wish I had more of an update, but really its just been a while since I updated. Big restore, again, on the vintage trailer in the avatar after major rains cropped up new leaks. So that took all of my free time, and some of my not so free time. But I've been working on the wiring harness. I bought a harness from Rolling Thunder, but after fitting it, I realized I needed to move quite a few things around. AC wire on the wrong side, IAT and MAF on the wrong side, Relay center had like a 4' cable on it, but need to cut about 30" off of it. So now its a big pile of spaghetti on the work bench. Ordered fans a shroud for my Champion radiator. Wow, was that kit really a kit. No mounting holes for the fans, no instructions, no bolts or screws. Not too hard to figure out, but would have been pretty easy for them to put a simple instruction sheet together too. decided to go a with a Braille battery. Didn't have a battery tray anymore after rust repairs, and though the firewall mounted battery would work out well. Had to make a 1/4" plate to mount on the firewall, to space the battery away from those indents on the firewall. Pics below. Started restoration of my dashboard. Didn't want to get too far without the new gauges though. So got those ordered and they took a long time, then arrived in the wrong color. Vendor made a mistake, owned up and is taking care of it but it'll be another wait to get those back. And I just read that Japan Garage went out of business. Now I need to find another source for wide ZG flares. So lots of starts and stops, but no completed tasks just yet. I need to focus on one task at a time, before I get overwhelmed. I'm going to try to concentrate on the harness, and likely roll into the body harness from there. Just need to cut the larger hole through the radiator support for the intake tubing, so I can be sure I'm getting the MAF and IAT harness wires to the right locations.
  14. I don't know about import duties and such, but $260 for shipping seems steep. Is that wheel much different than this? https://www.18racing.com/collections/rkr/products/copy-of-rkr-1590-4x100-0-67-1-magnesium-black
