    Seats - Prelude

    Prelude Seats - $100 obo Both in good condition, had them for about 2 years in storage. Recently Found a set of S2000 seats to install. If looking for stock seats for 280z(Will post better pictures shortly), those will go up for sale shortly also once I install the others. Located in Northern California. email: ngoquyen777@yahoo or PM here.
  2. Last run of donation shirts, I bought a few shirts and a Zip Up Hoodie. After unpacking I found it and actually put it on. I like my hoodies roomy, but the XXL was a bit too large even for me. If anyone wants it for free, just pay shipping. I can upload a picture later. Message me or if your Northern Cali, come get it.

    Car transport

    Anyone have a preferred carrier to ship vehicles cross country? Found a few brokers and average cost is about $900 to ship 2300 miles.

    California regulations

    Thinking about taking a job in California. Was wondering about how to handle my Z. If I remember there are some restrictions on vehicles especially older modified ones. I have a 1978 280z with an LS currently. If anyone could point me in the right direction or have experience with the process, it would be a great help.

    California regulations

    Not military and I tossed most of the emission stuff lol. First cancer and now maybe the Z. I think life is trying to tell me something.

    Haha, thanks Dennis. I may keep it "registered" with family and figure out if California is temporary or a permanent thing.

    looking for a good shipping company

    You get limited if the driver has to have a truck with a lift gate and pallet jack. If you can secure the clip on a standard pallet and have a means to load it on a truck you can try places like: CHRobinson Total Quality Logistics Old Dominion I have used a few of these guys before and since where I work has a dock and access to a forklift they didn't mind. Most brokers will try and work with you to find the best rate. I shipped an engine this way. A shipping company had a delivery to my property from Chicago. I knew the driver and talked to him about it and said as long it wasn't too far off the beaten path, it wouldn't be an issue. He only had a pickup of 2 pallets scheduled to return to his home base that didn't required to be sealed. He also had a lift gate on his truck for the buyer. I loaded a crated engine bound for Tinley Park. I saved a large portion of the shipping cost plus a muffalatta. Good Luck.

    outdoor car cover

    Personally, if the car still in rough shape I used a cheaper car cover that is weatherproof for $125, 3 years later it looks ugly but still works great on the project car. My finished one has a nice one the wife got me for birthday, cost about $220 from one of those online places. Works great and the no issues with the liner rubbing against the clearcoat.

    Thoughts on in Infiniti G37/G35

    If G35, search for the 2006-07 models. If I remember correctly 2005 and before had random engine issues, which issues were fixed post 2005 models. I do not have any experience with the G37 model, but I do prefer that model. Very sharp. My friend has a G35 that is his daily and he beats it on occasion and never gave him an issue. Windstorm, hailstorm, and floods never affected it (He is just lucky I think). I drove it a few times and I enjoyed it very much. I also drove the 2 door version, a bit sportier but rear seat access is not as easy. Depends on what your looking for. I have been searching for one also, but balancing a nice used daily or a new tacoma once the wife's SUV is paid off. Good luck on your search.

    1977 280Z Build Suggestions

    Much more support than stock. Used the old rails from the Z, found some spacers and slotted angle from the hardware store then about an hour later was finished. Wifey enjoyed the seats more and she has a bad back also. I have a set of prelude seats in storage that I haven't used yet also, which provide a bit more comfort and support than the integra supposedly.

    1977 280Z Build Suggestions

    I found integra seats cheap and in nice condition on Craigslist for 80 bucks. Cleaned them up and installed them on another Z that I sold. I liked them alot. Simple and easy. Maybe try bleeding the entire brake system first before upgrading. Old or tainted fluid or maybe even air causing your issues.

    paint for steel rims

    You can get most of the items from autozone. Duplicolor and VHT. I redid my truck rims in graphite and then diamond cleared them with a satin finish. Was easy and took my time. Only took a weekend. Been holding strong for 4+ years. I never had any luck with Plastidip, I tried one rim and a hood and hated the wavy effects when its hard to even out.
