Jeff,

I've been following your channel since the DIY mandrel pipe bender. Always good stuff. Your Z has come a long way from the time it rolled into your shop. Definitely inspiration for the days when I want to give up on mine. 

Glad it can give you some inspiration and hopefully you can learn from my mistakes.

Hey Jeff, I love watching your channel. It's pretty fun and you're a lucky guy with Mrs Jeff.  The amount of sanding you had to do was crazy. I am going to do the same with my 240z, but hopefully I've learned from your example and won't have to sand as much.  I'm going to hold off on much furthor comments since I've only made it through the episodes where you just finished painting. There's a lot more assembly that you've done, but that I haven't watched. So keep up the great work, and I'll see if I can send you something.

Poly bushings on the compression rod?  You'll need to replace the poly bushing on the back side with a rubber bushing - otherwise you'll probably break the compression rod.  Ask me how I know...  There are a fair number of thread posts regarding the issue.

Or a g-machine ball and socket setup.

 

I'd say from down right stupid to ideal.

Weld it to the frame, poly bushings both sides, modified poly bushing both sides, poly 1 side/rubber 1 side, rubber both sides, rubber 1 side/ball and socket, rod-end, a-arm style arm.

The hazard switch on the LHD 240z is to the right of the steering wheel, so I would assume it's to the left on the RHD. It is one of two holes, the other is the cig lighter.

I have indents there, but no holes. I have been informed since that Aussie cars didn't have hazard lights. Or cigarette lighters for that matter, which is weird as they have an ash tray?
