Help Me !! 28 Aug 2015
Hi all.   I recently bought a 260Z as a project car to work on with my son, and I'm having some engine issues. The car definitely needs a paint job and needs a good bit of interior work, but the body is great and has very little rust to speak of. The engine wasn't running when I got it, most...

Engine and Drivetrain Yesterday, 05:52 AM

Round two for the 280Z.   I filled up the back of my wife's station wagon and drove over to Jai's house.   I put in the battery hold down bracket I fabricated (and my wonderful wife painted). No more twine holding the battery in place. Those are M6 wing nuts holding the two parts of the...
