In October 2011 I traded my '84 VG33ET swapped Z31 for this. Its a 78 280Z.

2 days after getting it home, I fixed a high idle issue, 3 injectors which died on me the day before, new fuel pump, coolant temp sensor (engine control) wiring....

 

Then injectors died again a week later....so I dropped the tank and cleaned it thoroughly and put in some NA Z31 injectors (same size/impedance)

Dual air dam? :lol:

I put the side markers back on it, fixed my drivers side seat belt and tightened the nut that holds the exterior mirror on (it moved around some...)

Then shortly after, despite my attempts to clean the tank and such....more injectors decided to stick open.

 

 

L Solution?

I bought a "new" tank from someone local that was in way better shape then had it boiled out by a radiator shop.

 

I then proceeded with the carb install...

Start of the day: The fenders had some rust hidden in them (while the rest of the car is solid??), so I swapped them out...

After swapping fenders. Gonna prep the car for paint eventually and paint it...unknown color.

Bumpers are lame...I need to figure something out for a lower grille though...

Annd....SUs with temporary fuel line setup......it has the proper fuel rail and such now:

And just for fun, my Z31T and 280Z

I've put more miles on the 280Z in the last week than I ever was able to last year after I got it....so I'd have to say I successfully fixed it.
