Hello Everyone, I bought a 1971 Datsun 240z, about 2 years ago as my first project car. The more I started to dig into the car, the more I wanted to repair and improve it. Initially I was just planning on getting it running and using it while slowly upgrading and repairing it. I ended up tearing it down to the bare chassis, mounting it on a rotisserie and media blasting it. After I media blasted it, I decided to replace the floors and upgrade the frame rails with baddog frame rails. I sat down and thought about what I wanted the car to be and I came up with a ton of ideas, but ended up narrowing it down into one vision. The vision is this(nicknamed ProjectWhiteNoiseZ): My vision is inspired by modern Nissan Nismo styling, but it will be powered by a 2JZ-GTE with a cd009 transmission. I have gone through every part and media blasted and powder coated it or upgraded it with something better. Doing all of this, inspired my brother to buy a crashed 2008 Mustang GT and the current plan is to complete our cars by August/September '18. I live in Colorado and he lives in Pennsylvania, so I'll be road tripping the 240z 1700miles each way when complete to meet him at a track in Pennsylvania and race. If you're interested to see the work and follow our journey to complete our cars over the next few months, we have a YouTube channel, Facebook, and Instagram where we're documenting our builds. Any comments on suggestions for YouTube video improvements are appreciated. We will answer any questions you have.

Which of these bucket seats will fit my 77 280z? Sparco EVO 2/3 Bride VIOS 3 How should I mount the harness, to a roll cage or a harness bar? Here is the roll cage I was looking at: http://www.jegs.com/i/Jegster/550/942601K/10002/-1?parentProductId=753931 I only plan on racing it once in a while at the local drag strip, which doesn't require me to have safety equipment in the Datsun until I am running 11.49 and below. This car is a daily driver and I want to switch the miata seats that is currently in it out.
Let me explain that title up there. The other day I was returning a 328i to a dealership after a road test (I do auto reviews) and saw that my sneakers had left a terrible residue of gravel dirt and Gawd knows what else in the floor. So I decided I'd go buy a pair of decent driving shoes just for the tests (and for when the Z's up and running!). I did a Google search and found THESE. http://www.ompracing-usa.com/detail.html?productcode=IC/782 Problem is, those suckers are $320. But I liked the vintage look, and thought they'd go well with a suit I have. Why not kill two birds with one stone, right? I did more looking and found some Sparco vintage style ones, but they were also expensive. I like the brown leather Puma Future Cats, but they all have damned Ferrari logos on them. I don't own a Ferrari (evidenced by the fact that I won't spend $300 on shoes), and the only way I'd look dumber in them is if I did own one.

I like the mid-tops and sharp style, just not the price tag. Chuck Taylors make great cheap driving shoes, but I can't stand them otherwise. Alternatively, what do you drive in? -Trev
