  1. My zip is 92201. I'll pay by PayPal.


  2. Same thing, any pictures of the radiator? Any idea on shipping to Oregon?

  3. Do you have any pictures of the Champion radiator? Also is it a 2 or 3 row?

  4. I've got a full set of 513's in 16x8 with brand new bridgestone potenza tires. A bit wider than what you are loking for, but I thought i'd let you know.
  5. Is it built in San Diego???? Let's see if anyone picks up on the random movie quote i'm thinking of! Stay Classy!
  6. Looks great! I wasn't sure of it until I saw it all together. Very nice! Had you considered doing a faux CF treatment to the black? I watched someone do it on one of those saturday morning car shows (Horsepower?). Anyway, he laid some of that none slip kitchen cabinet liner (the rubbery woven like stuff) over black paint and shot over top of it with a lighter charcoal color. It actually turned out pretty darn nice. Not sure how seamless it would look between the ral CF hood and hatch, but it may be something you'd want to check out...... now that you're nearly done
  7. I'm "working" on this swap now. Here's a link to my current progress. http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?t=146776&page=3 Knee surgery and home renovations have halted things but the major transplant surgery is complete. shouldn't be too long before it's all buttoned up.
  8. I've caught a glimpse of a yellow 240/60/80 driving north on 81 not long ago... heading towards Roanoke. Wonder if he/she lives in Roanoke. There's a roanoke z car club out there I believe.
  9. "If his money is green, I'd sell no matter how stupid he was." Agreed If your worried about how the next owner will treat the car then your not ready to get rid of it!!
  10. That turned out great!! Kudos! As far as the bottom edge is concerned... Doesn't look like there's to much curve there. Not sure if your plan to weld in a piece of rounded sheet would work though. You have to remember that not only is the shape of the rear rolling under there, but it is also not a flat surface from the drivers side to the passengers side (does this make sense? Early on Saturday morning with only 1/4 cup of coffee and having trouble finding the correct words to desribe what i'm thinking). I think if you were to try and weld in a pre curved piece that you would have a problem wth it buckling at the center of the car. I think you'd be better of tacking in a flat piece along the top edge and bending it as you go to get the shape right. This way you can prevent that "buckling". The only way i see your plan working would be if you were to try to weld in two different pieces (left and right), which would be dificult to make it look right where they would meet in the middle. Any of this making sense? Imagine taking that curved piece of metal your talking about using, holding it in both hands horizinatlly and bending it. You can see how it would buckle in the middle. Jeesh, i'm rambling... off to drink more coffee! good luck! Looks GREAT. No doubt others will be doing this!
  11. Anyone seen these yet? Wonder if they have intentions of doing a euro set as well?? Should have done that from the beginning IMHO. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DATSUN-240Z-240-Z-STAINLESS-STEEL-BUMPER-BUMPERS_W0QQitemZ250461846937QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories?hash=item3a50b07d99&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245&_trkparms=65%3A10%7C39%3A1
  12. Soooo, do we believe the guy can't remeber what happened, or that he's playing dumb so the insurance comapany will cover him even though he was driving like a tool? Clearly the guy was doing well over the speed limit. Any guesses on speed based on damage to his car and damage ya'll have seen in other wrecks? I'm guessing 70+. Guess it's plausible that the gut passed out with his foot on the accelerator? What does insurance do if you've been charged with wreckless driving. Do you still get covered in an accident like this?
  13. Anyone else having trouble with the new posts tab. Every time I hit it I get the following message: This forum requires that you wait 15 seconds between searches. Please try again in 13 seconds. It's been doing this all day long.
