  1. Sooo, I am finally starting my build thread. over 2 years ago I read an article about the Z, and immediately thought I should go for one. I have a strong background with my fathers cars (Mostly Citroen DS) and have driven one of those for 2 years at a time. I guess what really got me was the statement that it´s a GT car for larger people (i´m quite tall) and thats exactly my type of car. This may also explain why I got a 2+2...I actually honestly and seriously like it more that the coupe + we have an autobahn and wheelbase is king After half a year I found a lovingly butchered 260z 2+2 euro spec with a 2.8l engine and LPG conversion virtually everything was broken but hey, only 5.5k complete with bondo, rust, ripped interior, weird parts etc. so I had to leave the high class dutch escort (looking) woman selling it and moved on (thats why I just have to buy a hardwood club, when you find that in a trunk you KNOW the owner has class). some more digging brought me here fast forward through 2 blown deals where cars were sold elsewhere even though I had already started with shipping, we come to the part with the hero of the story Daniel, here from hybridz volunteered to check out a car from me and it was instant love. A 76´ 280z 2+2 with one owner, stored since 83, 47k original miles and completely unmolested, so exactly what I was looking for and even for a good price. i will skip through some stupid stuff with my german bank and in the end Daniel took the car and kept it for me till paperwork was pushed hard enough to produce a title. Once again, I am still puzzled about the amount of favors he did for me! Enough sentimentality, THE CAR: 1976 280z 2+2 (N42/N42) from Richmond, CA still with 83 plates Edit: Remembered it wrong, is 55k (47k miles) (we took the engine apart) missing title but already over 1k invested by the owners son before selling (see later why) and here leaving america after nearly 6 month of waiting, oh what a day
  2. My car is officially done since I start messing with it Will go for the 92´200sx (never had 240sx here) CA18det gearbox swap thanks to our workshop here at work ^^ Managed to find a pristine box for 110$ in other news, I managed to get my fuel tank all rusted out. But for now it will work again.... VID-20180726-WA0000[1].mp4 VID-20180726-WA0000[1].mp4 ope

    center console harness 280z

    Hey, does anybody have a spare 75-76 280z center console harness? Its the one with the 3x3 hazard switch plug and the black radio connector. Don´t want to butcher my one since somehow a 77-78 got in there which is in far too good condition to modify. Its the one from the two black plugs (C10 and C11) to the radio, hazard etc. Like this one, only with the 3x3 connector. thanks

    Minnesota Bodyshop

    Hello Guys, stangely I was asked for a bodyshop recommendation in Minnesota... don´t ask me why anyways, the car is american muscle out of a field, in need of large bodywork. Car has sentimental value to my friend and he wants it done in 18 month. Lower 1/3 needs replacement, panels can be bought. So: Can anybody recommend a shop willing to take it on for a reasonable price? (he got quotes around 100k ) thanks so much guys!
  5. now that would be a fun LS swap for sure especially since the whells are just welded metal plates, called Pilote Wheels
  6. in other news. My fathers project also finished nearly in the same time. Just leaves the shared project 4wd to be finished

    280SR-Z from Germany

    In case somebody wants some chunks translated just let me know ^^ So far is was about an idiotic regulation here in germany where you can only increase power 40% over stock, then you need to supply a stiffness evaluation certificate for the car (above 10k€ ...) and the old SR20 CA18 discussion regarding aftermarket parts etc. I just asked for the 2+2 bumper parts ^^

    280SR-Z from Germany

    Hübsch! funk mal durch wenn du die Plastikteile der 280z Stoßstange loswerden willst. Bei mir sind einige gerissen und ich hätte gerne wenigstens die Option die zu nutzen. Apart from that, yes, 2+2 were really popular when the car was new. Nearly 1:1 rartio here of Coupe and 2+2 whereas it was like 1:10 in america iirc. Wheelbase->stability->autobahn
  9. Hey all, i have always wonders about this thing here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_tGt5V5rGDVNzBNN2RYbVNYRFE/view Item 24. its the racing under guard. Anybody has additional information about that one, or even measurements? Looks like a good idea for german autobahn ^^

    Under Guard Kit 99090 Datsun racing

    Ah, good to know.... I would go into the areo direction. Any idea who could have dimensions? + 10mm ... Fiberglas? Sounds bulky indeed. Sooo, how would one tackle getting the aero transferred to an 280z

    Under Guard Kit 99090 Datsun racing

    1975 280z Part Out, bushings, and more

    Sounds good, shoot me a PM with price+shipping to Germany please Already got the switch in the meantime, so just the harness + eventually radio
  13. Grüße zurück. Ich melde mich wenn die Ausfahrt mal Richtung Ostsee geht

    1975 280z Part Out, bushings, and more

    DAMN! no chance or getting them shipped prior i guess?
  15. Hey folks, I have (for now) chosen black 240z style bumpers and I am wondering it chrome bumper guards would be a) quite nice looking contrast b) horrible ? so did anybody try this combo?

    1975 280z Part Out, bushings, and more

    Hey, can you sell me the center console harness? Its 30cm and running from the right footwell under the center console. You can actually see it on your pictures That + hazard switch also, price for the radio? And do you have the jack kit? (this way it makes sense to ship)
  17. Villeman

    76 280z parts - hatch, trans, heater core, etc

    Do you have a center console harness? Its the 30cm long subharness with 2 black plugs on one side
  18. Villeman

    75-76 Hazard switch

    Yes, the 3x3 one! Do you also have the small piece of harness running from the 2 black plugs (C10 and C11) to the hazard switch? would buy both switch and cable

    75-76 Hazard switch

    Hey you all, for some strange reason my 12/75 has a 77 year hazard switch + plug! Spend 2 days cleaning everything only to figue out one has a 3x3 plug the other a 2x4. Only that my harness has a 2x4 plug as well! So I need a new switch+maybe a 3x3 harness side plug cheers Richard
  20. hmmmm, i thought thats what the 6-1 header in my garage was for can´t wait to drive it, just need to figure out the turn signal and then I am ready to go ! Would really like to swing by for a beer, just need fitting floaters for my whale
  21. ITS ALIVE first test drive was a success, until the front tire blwe up..... our shop found a piece or their tire-mounting machine inside . The last thing to settle is a center console harness. If anybody can spare a 75-76 model 280z center console harness I would be happy. There is a 77-78 one inside and its far too good condition to butcher it. Looking good thought ! Car is now conserved with fluid film and will recieve a dose of Mike sanders (a fat/wax mix polular over here) to keep it from rotting away.
  22. Lets hope my driving skill never makes it look like that again. Still some things to settle, but it started on the first crank after a complete engine +everything else overhaul, so it clearly finally wants to DRIVE !. Brakes, turn indicators, tach. Thats all on my list. Daniel, you really picked a stunningly good car! Million thanks
  23. Nope, the position is pretty much fixed. I will test it once I am home again and then decide what to do.
  24. Still undecided about the Hella 4004 mirror. I an quite tall so i hope to sit far enough in the back for it to not be a problem...
