I open myself for you criticism!

Open S30 Z Discussions 13 Oct 2013
Hi all! I have been underground for a while working on my '76 280z. I decided to hold off posting until I had something worth showing. My 280z was a bit of a whore in a prom dress. As I disassembled it and mounted it in the rotisserie it became obvious that I had a bit of a basket case...

Wood gear shift knob

Open S30 Z Discussions 26 Nov 2015
I have owned a '72 and a '73.  Both had wood gearshift knobs.  I have seen factory '71s and '72's that didn't and I have seen them that did. I don't think I have ever seen a '73 without a wood knob. Mine does not have a wood gear shift knob but I believe it is factory.  Does...

Thanks for any replies first of all.   Is the crank nose pulley originally the block color, blue/green? Is the TDC pointer yellow cadmium?  If so any recomendations on a paint color alternative?  Maybe a brass or gold hobby paint?   Thanks, Cliff
