  1. Thanks for the info! My car is going out for soda blasting, I'll see how bad my hood and hatch are after that to make the call.
  2. Has anyone bought and installed one of these guy's reproduction panels? My hood and hatch are a little rotten, this would save me a lot of time cleaning it up. https://resurrectedclassics.com/products/datsun-240z-260z-280z-hood https://resurrectedclassics.com/products/1970-1971-datsun-240z-vented-hatch
  3. Awesome, thanks! Yeah I have the oddball model that's sort of like a 240 but more like a 280. When I got it, it was in the pre "Series 1, Bring a Trailer" era so I didn't know there was much difference.
  4. It's finally time to put my car up on my chicken stand. I just wanted to double check that my rear mounting point would be ok. I've seen 240's using these but my early 260 didn't come with a rear bumper so I wanted to get a 2nd opinion that this spot was strong enough. I am using my old front bumper struts to bolt to the front (car didnt have the rears), its the rear I'm not 100 on. Also, do you guys hop in the car when its up on the rotisserie? There are a few things I need to get to. Thanks!
  5. I dont know if he is on this site, but this is impressive. Looks like a barra killer.
  6. Back from the dead. Here is some info on a stripper on Oregon. http://www.metaldipping.com/california.php#
  7. Has anyone tried this for the undercarriage? About to start scraping but this sound infinitely easier at getting the rubber undercoating off. https://www.facebook.com/SanoBlast/videos/2140022546129643/
  8. Anyone have this? The hydraulic lift feature has me intrigued. KW's high end stuff is pretty great.
  9. I see it's a high demand item. Trash bin it is! 😄
  10. What is a complete front to rear (including dash wiring) early 74 260z worth? Not included are the switch gear, tail and head light sections. Fusible link still intact. Fuse box and all the relays seem to be in good knick, I dont have the flasher relays anymore. I didn't cut anything when I removed it.
  11. I know this thread is a little old, but where did you get the rebuild seals for this? I thought it was NLA. I have a Wilwood combo prop valve I was going to use since I thought you couldn't get this anymore. Anyone know if those seals are still available somewhere. I looked here and google'd but never saw anything.
  12. If you are looking for a p90a there is one on ebay right now https://www.ebay.com/itm/144492508682?hash=item21a46cb60a:g:lpAAAOSwye1iTzCE
  13. Ive been following your build in instagram, your car is probably 20x's more serious than mine will be used. I have to admit a lot of what im doing is probably cosmetic, you know it *could* be functional though 😂. I will most likely just do the bolt in brace give what you are saying about what those bars tie into. I think I may do a plate on the firewall to spread the load a little better. The real question I have is how much does your cat charge for labor
  14. I was looking at this in terms of a bolt in brace, I prob could gusset it a bit before install. https://www.apexengineered.com/store/p66/Front_Strut_Brace.html In terms of a weld in brace, is this what you were talking about? I notice most peoples braces are welded offset from each other on the firewall, is there a reason for that? I may try a panel replacement for the master since theres essentially nothing on my car at the moment, but it would most likely be overkill for my driving. I'm mostly street, but I am a pretty hardcore bench racer 😁
  15. I am welding a brace under the fender. I was wondering if the strut tower brace that ties back to the firewall would be enough to reduce flex there. I could weld in braces tying it back, but I like the idea of it being removeable in the event i want to clean.
  16. My car is about to go onto a rotisserie and I am going to be doing some repair and moderate stitch welding on the easy stuff. I was thinking "while I am at it" until I came across this part. I'm not sure if I will need to brace the area around the master, but everything is apart so... Did you brace yours for your build? If its not a concern, I will prob just sand and paint it. I'll do a track day here and there, but its 98% a street car.
  17. Anyone have any thoughts on this? It would be infinitely easier than getting all the seam fill from that panel out and weld bracing it. https://www.apexengineered.com/store/p77/Brake_Master_Cylinder_Brace.html
  18. Thanks toolman, is the bottom part of the tube a plastic cover? I'm sure most modern sourced columns should be collapsible but I wanted to make sure. I was looking to see if there was a mechanism like this inside.
  19. I have been looking around for a used beverly throatless shear for awhile now, but i came across this. I'm wondering if this tool would be better in general. I'm looking to do some panel repair as well as some general metal fab unrelated to the car. Anyone with experience on this? Sooner or later I'll get that plasma cutter 😁 https://www.kett-tool.com/products/AN2000
  20. Would magnesium wheels be worth the risk in weight drop? I think they are about 1-2 pounds down on aluminum. https://www.vintageeng.com/magnesium-wheels/
  21. Came across this and I was wondering if anyone went this extreme on our car.
  22. Finally getting rid of parts that I bought, then changed my mind on, then replaced with something similar. 🙄 Price does not include shipping. All these parts (except the axles) were mounted but have zero mileage on them so here goes: 1. Z-therapy rebuilt SU's. SOLD 2. E-brake bracket, spot calipers, and cable for Arizona Zcar wilwood rear brakes from first WOZA group buy. Including new Wilwood prop valve. $350 Backet was trimmed so you don't need to pull the hub to get them on/off. Picture just for ref of it mounted, only items listed are for sale. 3. Arizona Z Car rear caliper bracket $100 Lovingly modded by JohnC 😄 4. Techno Toy Tuning Bump Spacers SOLD These were never mounted 5. Stock 300zx CV axle shafts SOLD 2. 3. 4.
