    New owner of a very early 240Z

    Thread Starter: metalmonkey47

    Well guys, this is my first Z but not my first Datsun. I've had an '81 210, and a 75 620 with a build LZ22. I came across this 240Z from a customer at work, who I've been helping along for years, hoping one day he'll remember me if he ever decided to sell it. Fortunately, the day came. I picked...

    License lamp question.

    Thread Starter: timsz

    Do the lamp bolts go through the hatch panel to hold it in place? The flat hatch panel that has the hatch latch. I put a new panel on. Will i have to drill holes through the panel? Will the top of the bolts be on the panel, one on each side of the latch? 71Z Thank you, TimsZ
