  1. Looking for the mirror mount part that holds the sunvisors in place. That is the only piece I need. Thanks! David
  2. I've got a brand new set for the diamond vinyl pieces in storage somewhere.
  3. What is the price? Guess I missed it somewhere. I'd be down for a set.
  4. It only took me about 13 years to do mine. And I still have little things here and there. Like some kind of hood hold down ;/
  5. Well another week has past. I've got so many people asking me aren't you getting pi$$ed? Ya know if you look at the date I started this thread.... What's another week? Sure I missed Bransonzfest. Bummed? Yes. Now when it does get on the road, I'll be searching for reasonable shows to take it to. Not going to make it to the 1st annual Elks lodge show and shine in Monett Missouri. But larger shows for sure. It is getting running and tuned today so perhaps, next week?
  6. A/C is all part of the March front runner kit It is called the style track from March I'm sure if you did some research you'd find it. I don't have the specs.
  7. What condition are you looking for? Show car, driver, something just to pass inspection? PM me.
  8. Head over to FB bunch of info over there on LS/TT set ups. I applaude your effort to: Build a daily driver with 800 HP, backed up by a Ford 9" for drag racing and wanting to get into track racing as you start college. Also what is this stage II you are talking about? Transmissions? I've never seen a T-56 grow larger. To make the trans fit you have to hammer the tunnel, not install a new one. Mods!!! Shed this thing before I go overboard.
  9. Found one thank you so much though!!!
  10. Looking for a nice clean dome light for my 73. I can get replacemnet lense if you don't have it or it is cracked and yellowed. Thanks! David
  11. Semi annual bump. Things are moving along though.
  12. We build bikes for the masses. I don't know too many people that are going to W-M looking for a $X,XXX bike I'm just happy to be associated with the industry.
  13. Don't recall the exact date but I know it was 16 years ago this month, Hybridz.org came to life. OG members check in here David Sommer
  14. I work for Huffy Bicycles
  15. Sounds like you know your way around cars if you built a 528HP 240SX. What engine were you running on that one? Turbo guys can chime in here if an L28 can make that kind of power. I've always been a V-8 guy. One thing that always sounds funny to me (don't take this the wrong way!!!) Watanabe wheels and budget. Wat's ain't cheap!!!
  16. 1st, do you have tools? 2nd, get a JTR book if you are going V-8, read it 10 times, then read it 10 more, keep it next to the toilet ( I did) As far as suspension, this is the first place I start, given the car is running. Do you really need the coil overs or just WANT coil overs? I'd go with a set of new springs and struts. This is an easy way to become aquanted with the car. Get a bushing kit, ball joints and tie rod ends, you;re not a "real" z guy until you do the lower control arm bushings, period The v8 swap isn't that hard. I had not spun a wrench in years before I started doing my conversion just took my time. As far as engine, are you going crate or build? If I could do it again, I'd go crate. You don't really need 400+ HP (you may want it but not totally necessary, more torque= more stress on parts= breakage.) Or LS engine. Finally...if you really need new floor pans, I'd find another car. If the pans are bad the frame rails are bad, more than likely the firewall and where the TC rods connect are bad too. To weld this all up (assuming you're having a shop do it) it's going to cost you, quite a bit. I would figure with pans, frame rails and some bad dog sub frame connectors + labor. I think you'd be in the neighboorhood of $2,000 (parts $459 at the ones I just looked at. Unless these can just be patched, I'd have to see to know Fender flairs, have them cut you're fenders while you're there, probably run you another $400. So based on this you'll be in it for around $2400+/- just to get the car solid. Just talking from experience. As stated above, if you're going to keep the car, start with the suspension. d
  17. I remember when folks were litterly tossing them because they didn't fit with out the custom bracket.
  18. I'm looking for a drivers side and passenger side outter chrome molding set. Rubber condition doesn't matter, just straight and as shinny as possible. I can polsih the metal please no bends or rust. This is going on my totally restored 73 Z8, Let me know what you've got via PM Thanks! David
  19. I've done it before royal pain it the rear (haha rear) Any ways, the second set I did I became wise. I took the assemblies to a local 4x4 shop (this guy builds crawlers etc, lots of custom fab work) he had them ready for pick up the next day. Cost was about $30. I'll never do it the manual way again NEVER!!!
