  1. 240z EFI harness routing path

    That engine bay looks good! Do you have a build thread or more pictures? Thanks for the ideas. So you just don't run AC? Good call on separating power wires from signal wires -- avoids any potential for noise coupling.
  2. When you guys have done a 240z to EFI conversion whether it's MS or stock ECUs where do you route the EFI harness through the firewall? Do you cut a new hole near the brake booster or repurpose another hole? Looking for ideas. Thanks
  3. Replacing dash with dash cover

    Ah okay. Yeah I can see that being a PITA to get aligned...if it's even possible. Nice. I had just read through your post before posting. I'm kind of leaning towards grabbing a full cover from MSA and going that route. Yours looks really good. Do you have any more pics of the finished dash? Sweet. I'm going to check that out. If it's cheap enough I might try a repair first. I bet some people have tried the polyvance stuff before. I wonder how it works long term. Haven't heard anyone say.
  4. Replacing dash with dash cover

    Here's some pictures of my May 1972 240z. It has a glove box logo. Ignore those horrible welds -- I was still learning
  5. Replacing dash with dash cover

    Thanks for the reply, G-Tech. I would rather try to keep it original. What products did you use to repair yours? On the repair side of things I'm going back and forth between using SEM products/expanding foam like (Great Stuff foam, SEM bumper repair, SEM texture paint, etc.) and the way more expensive Polyvance method using padded dash filler, plastic welding, FlexTex sprayable texture paint, etc. I'm looking at ~$80 SEM route vs. ~$240 Polyvance route.
  6. Replacing dash with dash cover

    Hey guys, has anyone tried to replace the original dash with a full dash cover? That is, move all of the mounting structure/bracketry from the original dash to a dash cover and use the cover as the new dash? I'm not sure if it's doable but I'm in the process of deciding which direction to go with my dash. Considering SEM or polyvance products for a repair, a dash cover on top of the original, or like mentioned using a dash cover as a full on replacememt. The original only has four cracks.
  7. Have you shipped any yet? I just moved and my address has changed.

    I live very close to here! I'm going to try to make this.
  9. After talking with MSA they mentioned that one other way to differentiate between front and rear is the front spring should have about 10.5 coils and the rear should have about 12.5. If you look at the pictures the shorter spring has more coils (12.5). I think this is why some people give wrong information e.g. saying the rear spring should be the longer one when they probably mean the rear spring should be the one with more coils. Correct me if I'm wrong. In summary I think the following is what I've decided: Front spring: Par tnumber: 6305.001 Relative height/length: longer than the rear spring Number of coils: 10.5 Orientation: Wider spaced coils towards the bottom, or 'Eibach' logo readable. Rear spring: Part nubmer: 6305.202 Relative height/length: shorter than the front spring Number of coils: 12.5 Orientation: Wider spaced coils towards the bottom, or 'Eibach' logo readable. I still don't know why my front springs have an ever so slight outward bow to them. I installed the second one last night and it's not quite as bowed but still is a little.
  10. I was basing my placement decision on this photo and this forum topic: My spring kit has a box PN of 6305.140
  11. Hey guys, I just started installing my Eibach ProKit springs on my 240z. I brainlessly painted over the part numbers on the springs so I had to do a lot of research to figure out which one was which. The longer non-progressive spring is 6305.001 and goes in the front, I believe, and the progressive shorter spring is 6305.202 and goes in the rear. This is correct yes? I installed the longer non-progressive spring (what I believe to be 6305.001) on one of the front struts last night and the spring looks to be slightly bent out sideways -- i.e. it's not straight up and down. You can also see that it's not straight because the piston rod is not visibly centered within the spring. I'm not sure if it's just not seated properly or what. I did notice the spring coil ends are in the little groves in the strut cap and strut base. See the pictures below and see what you think.

    I also sent a $50 donation the other day. Did you get that?

    Cool. I'd be in for some swag. Stickers, hoodie, t-shirt, maybe a cap. Glad to see so many supporting the forum. This place is great.
  15. 240z to EFI Fuel Hard Lines

    I think I'm just going to run two SS supply lines from classictube.com. One for supply and one for return. They should be 8mm lines or about 5/16".
