I picked up this 280z about 6 months ago with no real plans for it, the price was just right. I have since done just a little bit of work to it and collected some parts for it. I usually post most of my updates on Instagram, but I still prefer forums over other platforms. Any ways currently I am trying to remove as much rust as possible on the car while swapping the motor to another L series that will have a dual carb setup, comp 260s cam and a header on it. really I only need to get the fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter and fuel pump to have all I need to get it running(Any suggestions?). But I also know I will be doing more rust repair and rework cause I want it as perfect as I can get it. I also have a different set of wheels, lowering springs and shocks for the car. There will be a lot of pictures due to the work and parts I have collected so far. For as bad as the rust looks most of it is just surface rust and the floors are still solid.

 There's a lot of electric fuel pumps to choose from. You'll want about 3 1/2 psi fuel pressure to feed the carbs. Most of the complaints about elec. pumps are the noise. Many have found the 1st gen. (1980ish) Mazda RX7 pumps work great. No pressure regulator needed and they're nearly silent. Reasonably priced at any auto parts store.

Summit racing was quick with the delivery this go around. Got my gauge, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator. I know several people use them, but does anyone have any feedback on the Skillard door panels and radio/ac replacement parts? Im thinking about selling my factory pieces to go with the Skillard ones.
