NSAgent Posted June 21, 2008 Share Posted June 21, 2008 Im looking at getting a 280z from a guy in FL and I was wanting to know if anyone could give me a rough estimate on how much money I would be speding to fix all the rust issue with this car. --The title of the car is clear, itâ€™s not the original color â€“ currently itâ€™s a flat black, the original color I believe was a dark forest green(?). As far as rust, itâ€™s quite extensive on the passenger side. The passenger frame rail as well as the floor board needs to be replaced, there are a few rust spots as well as rust holes on the hatch, roof and hood. The passenger frame rail, is bent slightly and the passenger fender is bent as well. The doors are in ok condition, they do not lock â€“ but they do close, with a slight â€œslam.â€ The dash has a cover, but the original is in terrible condition. Steering wheel would need to be replaced (terrible condition). Seats are in excellent condition(no tears) for itâ€™s age, there isnâ€™t a lot of rust in the interior of the car â€“ except the floorboards. All panels are intact, the headliner is loose. To my knowledge everything works, the car ran fine a year ago. The owner claims, that heâ€™s confident that this car would be able to travel across country. He is a reliable mechanic and would make very sure that this car would reach its destination. Along with this car, come replacement parts; interior (seatsâ€¦) and exterior (doors, hoodâ€¦), and an extra motor from a 240z.-- Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
