    Yes, after posting here I went looking for answers on the Headlights and found the Service Manual on XenonZCars.com for 1977 S30. Also several other threads indicate that this is a common issue with these Z cars especially for the 75-78 280Z where either the stock is clean or it could be the ground for the lighting circuit. I will clean the stock and see if all the grounds are OK. The drill was left there as I needed to take the License Plates off in a hurry and had to be back at work so I didn't bother removing it when I was taking the photos.

    Hello Everyone, recently I have become an owner of running 1977 Datsun 280Z. I have always loved them and wanted to get hands on one of them, I have gotten my hands on this 280Z 2+2 GHLS 4 SPD. I am in love with the car, but it does have its flaws. I would like to sincerely ask the HybridZ community for any and all the help you all can provide on bringing my car to at its best. The known issues so far are as follows: All the lights work other than the front Headlights, and Hazard button does not work. Passenger door does not close fully and it seems does not latch on to the hook. Water on the floor of the car from rain seems to be getting in from the doors. Shift boot is nonexistent and can see the ground from the shift lever. (hence the fumes from busted exhaust are almost at hazardous level while driving the car) Atlast the Dreaded Rust is certainly present but it is not severe at as far as I can tell. I am very excited to join the community and would like to humbly ask for all of your help to keep this beautiful car alive and well. Thanks
