    ."There are two types of car enthusiasts: 1-those who have never heard of the red car 2-those who read the red car at an impressionable age and had their lives ruined by it. I, of course, am in the second group."

Rusted fuel lines under battery tray

Open S30 Z Discussions 17 Apr 2015
While my engine is out I'm cleaning up the bay.  I'm worried about the rusty hardlines directly under the battery, the only section.  Has anyone dealt with this before?  I've found a pre-bent line from classictube.com for $255 but would be happy with more options.   Thanks in...

It Ain't Running Right!

Carburetor Central 09 Apr 2015
So, first of all, i've been gone from the car circles for a long time for certain reasons. Have forgot most what i learned about carbs and timing.   Problem: last summer, i broke my distributor. Yes, it went broken. The collar that holds dizzy on place (with 2 10mm screws) was bent and event...

Fuel return line

Carburetor Central 18 Apr 2015
I have a 280z that I am going to put triple webers on.  In the course of my restoration I had to completely redo the fuel lines.  The plumbing had been a real pain and bending 5/16" stainless precisely isn't easy.  I have bent the supply, return and vent lines, but I can see where...

01/70 fuel evap tank

Open S30 Z Discussions Yesterday, 02:55 AM
So the car I have been restoring had a custom aluminum evap tank that was fabricated to replace the original one. I have not been able to cross reference as to whether or not the original is to be of a plastic kind or a metal kind. I am curious to know if the later model 71-73 or 72-73 (whichever...

New Headliner Installed

Interior Yesterday, 06:36 PM
I finally got around to installing the new headliner in the Z, which was missing when I bought it.  It wasn't too bad, was somehow able to do it without a second pair of hands.  I strung baling wire from the upper mirror mount to the interior light to drape it over as I worked it into p...

Making A Wooden Shift Knob - Chapter 2

Interior 26 Feb 2015
A while ago I made a couple wooden shift knobs (http://www.classiczc...den-shift-knob/) and while I think they turned out pretty well, I've always knew there was some room for improvement. They were "close" to the original design, but just different enough to bug me. So with that in mind, I...

Seeking Some Advice About The Dash

Interior 31 Mar 2015
Yesterday, I removed the dash cap to see if I could start on a restoration, I've read the restoration threads and felt it was doable. Now for the kicker whoever put the full dash cap on(not me) used about 100 tubes of latex caulk to hold it in place and/or fill gaps, the result when taken off was...
