I am working on some #4 brushed stainless steel inner scuff plates for the 280Z. They are modeled after the the later 280Z plates but I also put them in a 76 that had the early 280Z scuff plates and they fit great. In the early 280Z's you may need to drill a few 1/8" holes for mounting is all. I will also offer the option to powder coat them black (they will still be the same stainless steel under the powder coat). I can also look at making them for the 240Z but I know that those are still available to purchase... If there is enough interest for the 240's to have stainless steel scuff plates I can do that too. 

 

I should have these up at skillard.com to pre-order this week and should have them ready to ship early January. The price point isn't finalized yet but it's looking like $80 for a set of 2 with stainless mounting screws. Add $10 for powder coating.

Would 260/early-280 be the same as a 240? I know there are other interior differences, but I'm not that familiar with the scuff plates.

I believe that the 260 has the same scuff plates as the 240.

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.

These are my late year 74 260z plates . I'm interested in a set ... not sure if these are the same as the 240/early 260.

What is the length of these? I have a set that are off of a 76 that look comparable... the notable difference is an extra cutout on the tight radius.

Okay, yeah I believe those will be the 240Z style. Even though the early 280 sills look very similar they are 37.25" long.

Hi Ben - I'll be up for 2x pairs please (240Z).

 

What I'd really like is a s-steel/aluminum 240Z luggage-riser trim across the rear of the seats !!!

Okay, thanks. I am working on getting some scuff plates going for the 240Z since there seems to be enough interest for a ss version. 

 

Maybe shoot me an email ( Ben@skillard.com ) with some reference pictures of what you like that you've seen on some other models out there. If it seems reasonable to do I may need some measurements from you since I no longer have any OEM seats.

What's the normal price difference between your group buys and once it's in normal production? I'm planning on needing these eventually, but I'd like to not spend the money until I actually get to that point.

Gotcha, it depends on the part and the popularity of it. It will range between 10-30%

might be a silly question but are the 240z scuff plates sold in pairs or individually?

Not silly. They are sold in pairs.
