    Highest quality type 1 air dam with ducts

    I have the Urethane Xenon air damn on my Z. Fitment was fine on mine but I don't really have anything else to compare it to. Thought I'd mention though that if anyone wants a cheap and easy bolt on reinforcement to stop it from sagging the Skillard type 1 splitter works wonders to support it though I would recommend buying their shorter model since it sticks out a bit farther on the xenon air dam then the fiberglass MSA one it was initially developed for (the curve on the Xenon one is more shallow then MSA's fiberglass model). A lot easier to just bolt than on rather than try fabricating your own setup. Plus it blocks off the area under the radiator which makes a noticeable difference even during regular street driving.
  2. I have both the Urethane air dam and a Skillard splitter and got them to fit pretty ok. At the moment the front most angle brackets contact the air damn and create a small gap. Nothing too obvious but if I did it again I would notch the mount holes with a dremel to move the brackets back a little bit (a quarter in or so would probably solve my problems). as for the core support bolts I had a similar problem with the splitter hanging to low to reach as it was bottoming out on the stock 280z radiator hose(The 240z hose sits a bit higher) I had to pick up some longer bolts from the hardware store and a stack of washers to get it installed at the height I wanted unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the core support bolt holes. Here's some pictures of the urethane air dam and splitter installed on my Z though. I wish I could get you an undercar shot but unfortunately I don't have a camera at the moment.

    KW V3 Coilovers for the S30

    Speedhunters just did an article about a 260z that had an early set of these fitted http://www.speedhunters.com/2017/11/shooting-jun-imais-260z-from-the-sky/. Not a whole lot of information about them but better than none.

    Rear drum wheel cylinder

    Motorsport Auto has recently started selling some aftermarket reproductions for a lower price. I can't tell you what the quality is like though I've never used them. http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic21a09/24-5102A http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic21a09/24-5103A

    Skillard Stainless Steel Inner Scuff Plates

    The 240z inner scuff plates are different than the ones on my 75 280z at least. That said I know that 240z scuff plates will fit on a later z you just have to drill new holes since the mounting bolts are in different spots so presumably the reverse is also true.

    Newish Z Owner in Washington

    Hey there I've been lurking around here for a couple years since I bought my 280z two years ago and I figured I might as well finally make an introduction post. Both my grandfather and mother owned a 280 back in the late 70s and early 80s respectively and after listening to my mom brag about how great it was I naturally decided to buy my own. Although I did almost go for a fox body mustang instead (sure made the right call there). My Z is still mostly stock apart from some exterior mods to bring it more in line with the 240s visually and some electrical upgrades to help with drivabillity and safety issues. I do however have a nice junkyard L28et sitting around that should make its way into the car soon (read: two years from now). anyways nice meeting you all I'll try and post some pictures so long as I can figure out how these newfangled forum things work.
  8. Here's some photos with the xenon style airdam (sorry for the low quality I'm a pretty bad photographer)

  11. The core support sitting higher on 240s than 280s should at most require 2 longer screws from your local hardware store to reach. all the forces on the splitter are pushing down so it doesn't have to sit flush with the core support just hanging from the core support should be fine. It looks like the turnbuckles are the main source of stability anyways. oh and I can confirm if you are running a xenon/urethane air damn you will need longer bolts for the core support as the flexible airdam does indeed seem to hang lower I have one on my car and I can confirm that the splitter fits although the front turnbuckle mounts contact the recessed portion of the xenon airdam inboard of the brake duct holes you can either slot the holes for the turn buckle mounts and move them aft or just live with the splitter hanging 1mm lower than it should at the very front.
