  1. The frame rails are from baddogparts.com The exhaust pipe is 2.5" and 3" pipe I purchased from summit racing and cut to fit. The black coating is VHT flame proof. AC going in this week end.
  2. Re upholstered the driver seat. Next I will install vintage air condenser and AC compressor
  3. Custom home made exhaust completed. see attached pictures.
  4. Received my custom speedometer gauge from speedhut. I ordered a 4 1/2" GPS speedometer. They modified the wiring so the 2 red lights activate with a ground that is connected to the emergency brake. The blue light above the 240Z activates by a ground when the high beams are on. I also ordered with the remote jack button so I could install just like the factory. Fits perfect in the original speedometer case. GR4.5-GPS-03T 4-1/2" GPS Speedometer 160mph (w/ turn signal and high beam) Colors: Day - Black dial // White font Night - Numbers Green Glow Font Style: Eurostile Tick Style: standard Custom Text: 240Z Pointer: Standard White (Glows White) Bezel: Stealth Black Window: Flat Notes: 1. Remove front mounted jack button, install remote jack button. 2. Make 2 blinker bulbs red. High beam bulb blue. 3. Make 2 blinker bulbs and high beam bulb activate by supplying a ground not 12 volts. My car sends a ground to turn on lights. 4. Make GPS cable 5 feet long.
  5. New drive shaft arrived from Hoke performance.
  6. New front speaker.. Installed 2 speakers in the rear. Waiting on interior carpet.
  7. I have been working on the wiring behind the dash, removing unused wires and adding relays. Finally completed the restoration of the dash. My dash had many wide crakes. The results are great looks just like new. Will have to see how it holds up in the weather. If it does not hold up I have a full cover that I have fitted on the dash and it fits great. Waiting on my custom made 4 1/2" GPS speedometer. The gauge will have a high beam light, and I will use the blinker lights as the emergency brake light (they will make the gauge with red lights). It will have a remote jack button since I will install in the factory gauge bracket. They also made the brake light and high beam light work on a ground signal instead of a 12 volt signal. They also shorten the GPS wire from 15' to 5'. Great customer service. I also wired the ECU engine light to the volt meter 12 volt red light.

    240Z non working defroster

    The kit is made to repair small breaks in the defrost lines, mine are all bad I would need to replace all the defrost lines. I tried replacing 1 complete defrost line with the kit but the resistance was way to high. I think it was 90 Ohms.
  9. How are people restoring 240Z's repairing a non working defroster? My rear hatch glass is in great condition, but almost all the defrost lines are bad probably caused by window tint. What are the options to get a working defroster? I know I could by a used rear glass on ebay, but the odds are the defroster will be bad. I do not think the glass is available new. Any advice would be great.

    LS2 AC compressor mounts

    Hi Richard is the compressor R12 or R134A? Is the compressor a Sanden compressor? Pete
  11. What are my options to install after market AC compressor in my 240Z LS2? I now about JCI but on the web site it says you cannot purchase unless you buy his engine mounts. I have installed the Hoke performance kit. Pete
  12. I received the custom passenger header from Sanderson, that works with the Hoke performance kit. Next I will finish the suspension and brakes.
  13. Installed Vintage air mini Gen 2. Will add AC in the future after car is up and running.
  14. I have a new set of urethane bushings for a 280Z steering rack. Brand new never installed. Local pick up in the bay area, will not ship. Pete
