Hi all!  I'm new here and new to Z ownership.  Recently picked up a '75 280z after lusting over S30s for quite sometime.  It's going to be a project car, and I figured I'd document the build.  I've included some pictures to show you what I'm working with.


I was reading through the rules here and I didn't see anything regarding build threads; I assume they are allowed? (I saw the "Members Builds" area but I thought I'd ask anyway)  In addition to that, what are the rules on uploading videos of the build instead of pictures?  


Any answers are appreciated.  Thanks!

Welcome!  Build threads are definitely encouraged.

  • Download a Factory Service Manual (FSM) 
  • Download electrical schematics for your car.  PDFs are easier to read than those found in books. Some are in color.
  • Buy the book How to Restore Your Datsun Z Car by Wick Humble. It will save you hours of searching for "how to" info.
  • Focus on searching Hybridz as 99% of questions have already been addressed.
  • Start bookmarking Z car parts suppliers
  • Remember these are 40 year old cars and will need restoration to be safe and drivable.
  • Join ClassicZCars.com website and search there as well.
  • Become well informed about modifications before asking questions. People will be more inclined to answer informed questions.
  • Read the new member FAQs.
