  1. I have those Konis in my 280 with lowering springs. Drove around mostly on weekends this summer and two autocross sessions and seem to be holding up well so far. The adjustability is nice and easy to change. Just be sure to follow the installation instructions when tightening the top nut. make sure it is fully engaged by hand and no power tools.
  2. For some reason it killed everything on mine even the lights and hazards which was a bummer on the side of the highway. Though I've been having some lighting issues lately so maybe something else was at work. It's been a while so I can't remember if there were blown fuses or anything else in addition. I just remember swapping the ignition module and it hasnt happened since.
  3. I had a very similar problem. One summer when driving on really hot days my car would shut off and would not turn on, crank, or do anything until it "cooled down" For me it was the Ignition control module on my 1975 280z. Turns out my leaky windshield dripped onto the old ignition module (on the right side of the passenger foot well) and caused it to overheat on hot days. I could tell it was the leak because there was a trail of light corrosion leading to it. I replaced the module with one from a fellow member here and I've been driving smoothly ever since. I broke down 5 or 6 times and each time I replaced my fuel filter thinking my fuel lines were clogged. Changing the filter gave enough time for the module to cool down or reset and I could start the car right up. it wasn't until I changed the filter and the car still wouldn't start that I realized it was something else. Hope that helps!
  4. What will your intended use be for these files? I'd be interested in them if I can find a way to use the data in Solidworks.
  5. Just finished updating the stock manifolds over the winter. New injectors, Custom fuel rail, and a bit of rearranging: Before:
  6. He's got the series 1 hatch glass at least
  7. You could 3D print the mold for which the manifold would be made from. I know there is a thread from someone doing a custom cylinder head and he is 3D printing sand molds to get prototypes done. So you could either 3D print the mold itself or the "blank" to make a mold from. I work for a prototyping company and I haven't heard of anything that would be heat resistant enough or even durable enough to make a manifold from. Unless you get a laser sintering printer which can print metal, but as you said that process is still quite expensive. Most printer materials are very brittle and melt relatively easily.

    Cockpit Heat

    The heater vent to the right of the gas pedal was stuck open on my car. I spent the first summer driving around with the heat on unknowingly and it got HOT. Might be something to look in to.
  9. Just ordered some, I should have them on Monday and will report back
  10. M12 x 1.25, Bolt length- 40mm, Thread length- 18mm, Shoulder Diameter- 11.9, Hex size- 17mm, Grade 9 I have a spreadsheet with most suspension, and sub frame related hardware. Send me your email if you want a copy of the excel sheet. I used part numbers and ordered most of my hardware from Courtesy Nissan when available.
  11. 90137A319 Nylon Expanding Shank Rivet, .189" Hole Diameter, .158"-.281" Material Thickness, Black, packs of 50 This one would appear to have the closest dimensions. I have not ordered them yet to confirm though.
  12. I've heard occasionally an exhaust leak around the #6 cylinder can sound like excessive valve train noise. I'm not sure what condition your engine bay is in but it might be worth looking into.
  13. My friend in New Hampshire has this setup Its a wide 3 bay garage, Lift in the middle bay, standard garage doors but a very high ceiling. Some storage is along the far wall in the picture. Theres a sand blaster and wood stove in the back corner, and to the left beyond what the image shows is a workbench, tool storage, and air compressor. Various spare engines, tools, welders, etc. are pretty much rolled around wherever they are not in the way. The back door in the image leads to this: 6 bays (3x2) of car and parts storage. They would benefit from some organization and better storage systems
  14. I have a '70 clamshell I'd be willing to donate. I don't need anything back since I don't own a '70 haha
  15. I had gotten the Kia weather strip from a junk yard near me. I think it was $20 for both
