  1. Working on towing hook. Since I replace bumper to 240z style, I lost somewhere 280z towing hook. So, purchase this one. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-240z-tow-hook-kit-front-and-rear-s30-SCCA-and-track-day-legal-early-260z/271274853112?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 But actual products has less holes for the rear mount. It won't fit to my 280z. For the front, since i installed Type 1 spoiler, I cannot just bold on it. I need make a hole in order to mount the towing hook on the front.
  2. Found some document about Datsun key code. http://www.hpcworld.com/Print/36041_000_00.pdf But I have no clue from this tech doc....
  3. Thanks @Zhoob2004 I don't know any reliable locksmith around my home. It's easy to find it online You might be right. The key cylinder itself might be worn out. But I'd like to try the key at first.
  4. My key is worn out. I can take it out while running the engine. My previous 240z had the same issue. Hmm... Photoshop Mosaic filter effect is not good idea to apply here... It looks like a #$%^@. I'd like to make a new key to cut based on the key code. I found online site that help me to cut the key based on the code. http://keysforclassics.com/form/ Waiting for their reply.... I also look for blank key for the same shape of this key, but I can't find on eBay...
  5. Thanks Leon! Look forward to driving Z cars together!
  6. After 6 years of working on rebuilding this car, finally, she went outside of the garage for test drive.
  7. @Zhoob2004, I don't remember whether I can access from trunk area on my 75. I already closed interior panels ☹️
  8. @Neverdone, Thanks for your advice. Since there is inner sheet metal, I cannot use weld nuts. I will check nutserts.
  9. HI @Neverdone, I don't know how I can treat that. Even though make a hole How can i bolt on it?
  10. Installing glass fiber bumper. I purchased this bumper long time ago through local Craigslist. For the body side bracket, I purchased from EuroDat @ Classic Z community. It's very strong and fit really well to the body. I welded the bolts to the bracket and put glass fiber sheets. Add a couple more glass fiber sheets to make it durable. Test fitting is great. But I need to think about what I should do for the side of the bumper. I don't have holes to bolt on to the body...
  11. New music video with S30 Hiroji Miyamoto's "Fuyu no Hana" WInter Flower
  12. found a leak from front right side of brake caliper. It leaks from the bottom of the caliper. Went to pick and Pull and get another caliper from 4Runner. It was pretty clean and looks like rebuild recently. Use wire brush to remove surface rust and use PRO15 metal prep to clean up. Then, paint Red using DupliColor. Need to wait a couple of days to completely dry.
  13. Purchased 3" bracket @ eBay. Test fitting. drilled a hole ¥ Cut it Done.
  14. Hey 75280z, You can purchase Door Upper Molding Rubber Seal from here: https://zcarsource.com/door-upper-molding-rubber-seal-240z-260z-280z-70-78-new
  15. Purchase $39 cheap cold air filter. It comes with air filter, aluminum pipe and small aluminum bracket. The pipe size is too big it won't fit to the rubber boot unless removing O-ring. Looks OK. but without bracket, it's hunging like a d*ck. Plan to create a bracket something like this
  16. Thanks Miles. The mystery is solved. The bottom of the brake hose port is not tapered at all. I can see the brake piston. The nipple port has tapered end at the bottom. That's why no matter what nipple I use, no matter how hard I tightened in it did not stop bleeding when I swap nipple and brake hose port. I thought I read somewhere internet someone suggest to swap ports in order to correctly bleeding.... Anyway, thanks a lot of your help! By the way, I purchased rebuild caliper from RockAuto "A-1 CARDONE" brand. It's getting better quality compare to before. It's powder corted with shining silver and internal is also looks clean now. I haven't hooked up Ebrake cable yet. I replace original cable to 280zx cable since the e-brake cable end shape is different.
  17. Thanks seattlejester. Miles also point it out me too. I started new threaded here. Thus, if possible, can you delete this thread? Thanks!
  18. Thanks NewZed and Miles. The speed bleeder nipple is so short. and DORMAN's OEM version is a bit longer than original. I tried both to put it into the brake hose port. It looks like both bleeder nipples not even touching at the tapered section at all. My guess is brake hose port does not have tapered port. I will check other 280zx caplier's brake hose port. Thanks!
  19. Since I cannot solve the nipple issue, this is the current status.
  20. Hi Miles, Even though I tightened bleeder nipple as tight as I can, brake fluid keep coming out when I press brake pedal. So, I swap back nipple and brake hose input to original location. I put brake caliper flat to make nipple facing up to bleed air, then mount it onto the maxima bracket now.
  21. Thanks Miles for pointing out for posting wrong forum. create new topic here. Hi, I have a problem to find out right size bleeder nipple for 280zx rear caliper conversion. I read several thread that I need to swap brake line and bleeder nipple in order to put nipple higher position than brake line for bleeding. So, I swapped brake line and nipple input location. However, the nipple won't stop bleeding. I tried Russell's Speed Bleeder (6393630 10MM x 1.00) but result is same. I changed caliper twice (purchased from rock auto) and still same issue. Does anyone have clue?

  23. Working on Door Glass Window Run Felt Rubber Seal replacement. There is a metal plate which old the felt inside was totally rusted. Using a wire brush to remove rust and use Rust Resolver gel to remove rust completely. You can see Before and After! The felt was hold by metal staple, but I don't have it. I used T21 instead.
  24. Thanks NewZed. I will double check once my helper comes back from school to check the rob travel length. I saw video on Facebook that 280z user posted video about Clutch Slave Cylinder. https://youtu.be/0lVqvzw3peE When I check before, my Clutch slave cylinder move much less than 35 mm.
  25. When I check current OEM slave cylinder, it’s about 6.5cm when i’m not pressing clutch pedal.
