Hey, I havn't hardly posted on here, cause I really couldnt find reason too. Everything I was looking for was already on here asked by 300 other people lol. I seen the last few days yall been having trouble with the website, I'm glad its back up cause seriously this is my #1 source for info on my 280Z. Since I bought it a few years back I've finally got the efi to work and get the car up to where I can enjoy it. The motor is coming out near the end of the season and gonna put some flat tops and megasquirt. I seriously cannot wait to do all this. I just wanted to let everyone here on this forum that posts their fixes, problems, and issues THANK YOU! You've helped me tons and on a limited budget! Not to mention great reading about some of your guys and gals cars in here. Tommorrow the cars gonna get flogged on some north ga mountain roads near my house all thanks to you guys.
It all began with a cleaning... then as I started to grind away the small rust spot on the tailgate, the hole kept getting bigger. the plastic cover was hiding a huge hole. Here is how I fixed the rust holes, and rear hatch: I cut out the areas that had rust with an angle grinder I cut out matching pieces of 16 GA steel and bend to match existing I painted all the parts and all around the hatch with POR-15, doing the whole cleaning and etching process and installed NOS inner weatherstripping and the top portion of outer weatherstripping Re-installed rear tail pieces, and lights Then I turned my attention to the hatch hinges, which were ripping off at the seams. I welded them on the top And underneath And that was about a weekend of work, for an amateur.
