  1. Might part ways with a 76 280z I recently picked up. Was sitting in a dry cement floor pole building since 1997. Ran when parked situation. Even had old receipts and change in it from the last time he drove it to the parts store in 1997. 8x,xxx miles, Original Florida car then found its way to WI/MN. This thing is very original down to tires and wheelcaps. Interior is pretty decent and the body is pretty good for up here. Very repairable rust that started in spots. Middle of frame rails need some work but all other typical spots are solid including floors. I was going to use this for just the
  2. been a while, have a little to update. Didn't get after this thing like I wanted to yet, but I'm trying. It might take a little back burner position to my Ranger as I want to get it done for a trip this summer. That and I really want to throw the 280 on a rotisserie and do the rust repair right. I'll just dump a few pics of what I've done in the last few months. got my BC coils on, picked up some better condition front fenders, started messing with a little sheet metal repair, and I ended up getting a good deal on a triple carb setup so that will be going on later as well.
  3. For sure! Like to get my damn car on the road before sunmer is over hah. Yeah I started a claim, they have shut down all of their contacts/ways to contact them down. So yeah there is definitely something going down.
  4. I found a number (407) 600-7911 guy actually answered and tried to get who he was out of it, and finally asked if he was affiliated with JPN Garage and he said no and hung up quick. Also the email is shut down too, so can't even ask if they want to settle this in a quiet and easy kind of way. So not quite sure what to do other than try and file a claim against the money via the bank. If this is legit scam level shit, they got some bad karma coming their way.
  5. Yeah they have my money for coilovers...not to happy right now. was already shitty about the long wait, but now i'm just worried about the money. Should have just went through a rep.
  6. yeah it might be simpler to just shave the battery location and relocate the battery in the car at this point. Yeah they are 14's. I'll take one off tonight while i'm working on it and see if I can find anything written on them.
  7. Thanks guys. I'll have some sheet-metal work up on here tomorrow after I get more done. The battery tray area had typical rust. It was mainly at the seem where it met the firewall and creeped into the upper floor pan. I just chopped it all out and I'm filling it back in, Not sure yet how I want to finish where the tray was. Put one back in or just smooth it out and relocate the battery maybe. As far as those wheels go. I believe they came off a 4-bolt mustang, and they also had old Shelby centercaps. I never looked at the back of them yet to see if there was anything written on them.
  8. Picked up a dirt cheap 76 280z runner/driver. Always liked these cars so why not add another project to the pile. Needs some body work, but i'm not going for show car. this will end up just being a cool looking driver. I will be making or buying some new frame rails as one is pretty much toast. Also do the floor pans at the same time. Have the stock tank out, was all bashed in and not too clean. So I will be dropping in a fuel cell in place of the spare tire. Just trying to have fun with this build so there will be some different ideas and creative touches along the way. Tube bumpers, D-ring t
