  1. Have some friends traveling to Japan and I would like to pick up a steering wheel for my 78 280z project. Can anyone suggest some quality manufactures? I have heard good things about vertex and key’s, just looking to see if there is anything else out there. Also, what steering wheel adaptors are you guys running? Thanks in advance!
  2. Can anyone tell me the thread pitch of the front brake hard lines? Also, are the ends of the hard lines universal? Or is there a specific type that i need to get?
  3. @Leon is there anyway to tell when the reservoir ports are covered?
  4. @jhm I would greatly appreciate that. Thank you so sir!
  5. @JMortensen I will definitely be using the pedal depressor. Makes the most sense in my mind. Especially for what like brake fluid i’m going to lose. Now to just get the inner bearing out of my steering rack and we will be good to go....
  6. Thank you @jhm i’m looking into braided lines as well. Any you would recommend?
  7. The only reason I thought to grind the medal piece off that connects the soft line to the housing is because i’m going to be cutting below it anyways to weld on the new coilovers. With the pedal depressor I don’t think I will have to worry about that. Thank you both @JMortensen and @Leon so simple, but it didn’t even cross my mind.
  8. I’ve never even heard of this thank you so much for the recommendation I will be looking into this. So I thought about that originally and when I went to go do this it looks like the soft line is attached to the strut housing (i’ll post a picture when I get home). So unless i’m looking at this wrong I don’t think I would be able to disconnect the caliper without losing brake fluid. I guess I could just grind off the part that is connected to the strut housing because i’ll be cutting the strut tube below that point. @Leon
  9. I apologize if this may be a stupid question, but I want to be sure I do this correctly. I am currently in the process of converting my 280z to bc “coilovers”. I am trying to figure out the best method of removing the brake lines for an extended period of time. I want to avoid clamping the lines because i’m not sure how long it is going to take me to get everything back together. Is there a way to plug the master cylinder itself? Originally for the front i thought about just removing the calipers and leaving the lines attached to the strut housing, but looking at it some more I don’t think that is going to be viable. Thanks for any input.
  10. Thank you for the reply. I will definitely post up if I find anything.
  11. No problem at all! I didn’t know this.. thanks for the info! Do any other modifications need to be made with the 240 pinion? I would think I would need the 240 bearings at least.
  12. Sorry @jhm I might not have been specific enough. I’m looking for just the pinion not the entire rack. My apologies
  13. Has anyone found a replacement for the late 280z steering rack pinion? Or someone who may sell used ones?
  14. Looking at buying some BC coilovers and i’m just curious if anyone on the forums might be a distributor or have someone they can recommend. I have heard about apocalypse motor sports giving good deals, but not really sure who to contact or if they are legit. If anyone has any info on them that would be greatly appreciated it!
  15. @seattlejester awesome thank you for all the information. I’m going to start looking at some different camber tops. The camber bushings seem pretty simple and straight forward as well.
