  1. Jeff, You did really well by this car, congratulations on a job well done! We'll all be looking forward to the next chapter in your Z life. It was a pleasure to meet you and the car in Austin, looking forward to catching up with you in Atlanta (if not sooner). Jim

  3. 1971 HLS30-14938 "Lily" build

    I used a big C clamp to compress the assembly to get the nut on the rod.
  4. Website Improvements July 2017

    @Mike Looks to be working fine. Thanks!
  5. You've got two weatherstrip products with attached welting - why not try each of them to see if one works better than the other. I tried PRP several years ago and encountered the "fat seal" problem, switched out to Kia and happy with the results.

    @Mike I'm having problems uploading a pic in response to a recent post by Timz. Getting an error msg. that includes "contact us for assistance". The pic is 800 X 600, 164kb so its not large. I tried several times, even with different pics. Thoughts? Thanks, Jim

    Just tried to check my Garage, got a "configuration or server error" msg. No rush - work on higher priority items.
  10. 55476-n4300 moustache bar bushings wanted

    If you're absolutely set on OE rubber bushings, then consider contacting David House at Courtesy Parts (david@courtesyparts.com). He can scan dealer inventories across the U.S. to see if any are available. If so, he can have them shipped to Courtesy and then he can ship to you. You'll pay parts cost and all shipping.
  11. Windsheild defroster garnisher question

    The stock finish is satin black - no reflection onto the windshield.
  12. Switchback LED front turn signals

    Hi Dave, The write-up I was thinking of was just the electrical aspect for your lights and sidemarkers in keeping with this post topic. I suspect there are any number of 280Z owners that would be interested in this creative mod. Beautiful work! Jim
  13. Switchback LED front turn signals

    Here's the sidemarker kit for 240's. I have it installed as part of the relay upgrades and it works great. We need a tech write-up from Dr. Dave on how he did it for his 280Z. Actually... we need a tech write-up on the entire project! http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic10l/12-4654
