  1. I will be returning from Afghanistan in a few months and if I can come up with the right car I may be able to convince the wife. I am looking for a 260z-280z 2/2, preferably slighgtly modified. For example: upgraded suspension, interior, modified engine (not to insane). It needs to be a daily driver, I am willing to get it painted, IT MUST BE RUST FREE. PM me if you may have what I'm looking for. NOTHING OVER $10K, thanks.
  2. Here is some newer photos, and the cars are for sale now $1500 for both of them. By drwharton85 at 2011-02-14 By drwharton85 at 2011-02-14
  3. I have been working on a 73 240z, I am in the process of working on the doors at the moment. When I installed the passenger side door I noticed it wasn't moving properly, where the front upper right section aligns with the F/R fender area there is a large gap, and the lower right section of the door hits that areas section of the door jam. So I know the door is sitting to low, but I aligned the door with the hinges properly. I know both doors came from another car, (don't what year) the drivers side door went on with no problems. Is there a difference in the S30 doors? Or am I just missing something? I attached some photos, don't judge the body filler work its a long story and a there is a method to my madness.

  4. I am looking for a spare wheel size R14, that someone has just lying around that they don't need. I need it for a 1973 240z, I am hoping to get it for free or very cheap, and in the Gulfport Mississippi area. If you have one PM me please, thanks a lot.

  6. I have started on the fenders and other front body parts, here are some photos so far. By drwharton85 at 2010-10-10 By drwharton85 at 2010-10-10 Here are some photos of the rear interior. By drwharton85 at 2010-10-10 By drwharton85 at 2010-10-10
  7. So far I have been using a ultra fine finish sponge like roller, using this and mixing the rustoleum 75/25 with mineral spirits, the paint almost seems to be self leveling. I wet sand in between coats with 600 grit wet sand paper then wash the car then paint again. right now it has 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of gloss black, I am thinking another 4-6 coats and she should be a beauty.
  8. There are two coats of primer, and two coats of Rustoleum glossy black to protect the car while I am working on it. In the end I will have 8-10 coats of paint, I have been wet sanding in between coats with 600 grit and will be using a 1200 grit on the final coat then buffing and polishing with a Mothers buffing compound designed to remove fine scratches.
  9. I have been working on the 240z for a hour or two everyday and this is what I have accomplished so far. By drwharton85 at 2010-10-08 By drwharton85 at 2010-10-08 here are the problem areas I have come across.

  10. I haven't taken delivery of the 280Z yet, so I will let you know when I have it.
  11. Actually I will be parting a lot of it out, and using some for the 240Z. My plan is to turn the 280Z into a track car, so it will be stripped down.

  14. yeah it's some work, but he deserves it. Here is a picture of the products i'm using to prime and paint the car with. I will upload some more pics this weekend of the car being stripped and prepared for replacing the really bad rust. By drwharton85 at 2010-09-16
