  1. Greg, welcome to the forum. Unfortunately you don't see superchargers much anymore, replaced by the ubiquitous turbo. I'm looking forward to your adventures with your supercharger.
  2. I know someone is making them, just can't remember where I saw it. Start a thread with door skin in the tile and someone will tell you, I'll keep looking.
  3. Looking good, yeah I had those talks with myself before, "How did I end up paying someone money for this rust bomb?" Are you going to re-skin that door or just patch?
  4. I'll just play devil's advocate second, a battery in the passenger compartment is usually in a sealed container vented to the outside to prevent a build up of hydrogen gas in the cab and to prevent hydrochloric acid from flying around the cab in case of a collision.
  5. @jhm,I too love Fedhill but a friend turned me on to these guys, https://www.thestopshop.com/collections/copper-nickel-cupronickel-tubing-kits The wall thickness is the same a Fedhill but the price difference is substantial, I like their armor as well, also not expensive. I haven't purchased anything from them yet but my friend has and is very pleased with the products he has received.
  6. Since there will always be a next owner at some point that might want to go back to bumpers you could just squirt some sealant in the holes then add little filler to smooth it out.
  7. The rear brakes are the only ones you want a prop. valve going to. I like the knob coming up through the console.
  8. I think this might be what @AydinZ71 is referring to, https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-internal-frame-coating-14oz-aerosol.html It does the job well but is very thin stuff so runs everywhere, it also comes out of the can VERY quickly so you will run through the can before you know it. I used 4 cans and I just barely got my Z done with it, I wish I had ordered 6-7 cans.
  9. Welcome to the forum, you have your work cut out for you Sorry, couldn't resist. This is a fellow Albertan you should get to know, zKars on the ClassicZcar forum, he has many many parts for our cars and has very reasonable prices, he's also a wealth of knowledge for everything Z. With so much of the car rusted away I would just caution you repair one section at a time so the body doesn't distort and get welded back in the wrong position. It might be a good idea to mount a door when working on the rockers so you can be sure to get fit right. Also, mount the front cross member and th
  10. These two books are great. https://www.amazon.com/Modify-Your-Nissan-Datsun-Engine/dp/1931128049/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Datsun+engine&qid=1613081945&sr=8-1 https://www.amazon.com/Rebuild-Your-Nissan-Datsun-Engine/dp/1931128030/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Datsun+engine&qid=1613081999&sr=8-2 The performance mods are in the first book.
  11. As I remember everyone back in the day carried a towel in the car for the carwash or rain storms. Nice to see you could tweak it out. Yes, the Kia door seal is a good option, I have them on both doors and the rear hatch and they work perfectly.
  12. She's cute. Interesting but aren't 5 lug conversion kits readily available? Just had a look at TTT and their front and rear 5 lug hubs and axles would $850 so you could save a lot of cash by picking up your own Mustang front hubs and then order the rear axles. That's good info to hang onto, thanks.
  13. Since you have the tank all cut open have you considered installing gas tank foam? A lot less work and lighter.
