  1. A couple options here: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic19 I'm using this one: http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic19j/15-6308 I hate to tell you but z-cars have a reputation for exhaust smell in the cabin. You may find that very difficult to get rid of.
  2. WTB: 1980/81 280ZX 15/16 master cylinder

    I wish mine looked that good. I think I got it on eBay. It works well enough but the caps look crappy...a project for another day.
  3. Throttle Cable Upgrade - All The Way To The Pedal?

    No, I'll put something together one of these days... :-)
  4. Throttle Cable Upgrade - All The Way To The Pedal?

    I used this universal cable from summit racing. I had to actually do some cut and weld modifications at the pedal end of things to make the connector fit nicely. If you want details PM me and I'll take some photos.
  5. Tail Gaters...

    Too dangerous. I let off the gas and slow down to EXACTLY the speed limit or 5 below. Then I speed back up to what I was doing. If they come back I do it again. They usually get the message by the second time. Since I usually drive about 5 over the message is, "I could drive slower..."
  6. I found this: https://baltimore.craigslist.org/pts/d/1970-datsun-240z/6275326454.html Some sick part of me wonders if I could save it. Is it worth saving? Of course I've had a couple beers. Think I should offer him $500 bucks and give it a go?
  7. Tail Gaters...

    I live in the DC metro area. The drivers around here tend to be pretty rude. I'm not sure if they are tail gating me to get a better look or they are just jerks. Most likely the latter. My car goes like a scalded get, though, so if I'm lucky enough to find a break in traffic I can drop any tail gater pretty quick.
  8. A Friends new ride!

    Nice! GT40's one of my dream cars.
  9. 16 Year Olds RB25 240z

    LOL! I wish.
  10. I used a 240 air dam and bumpers. If this floats your boat I can give details. You should search Eurodat up too. He did a nice detailed post on the conversion.
  11. 1973 Rebuild

    Matt: Nice progress. Sorry about the blasting and flash rust frustrations. When I did my car I always painted after blasting with an etching rattle can primer. That way I never left the metal bare for very long. I like the way you plumbed the shop. I wanted to do something similar with mine but I was too lazy. Keep at it!

    Awesome! Looks like your system is well thought out. thanks for entertaining me. i had rotator cuff surgery yesterday so aside from the internet and binge watching on Netflix I don't have much to do.

    Nice work. You may have answered this but i'm curious what your plan is. You're keeping the injection, right? Are you regulating on the return or supply side? I think you are doing nice work but I'm a little concerned about the hose clamped connection for a high pressure (FI) application. Hope I'm not coming across as critical. You have done a great job and I'm dying to see the finished product. Another suggestion as long as I'm being a pest... and a g-sensing fuel cutoff. safety first!

    madkaw: That definitely looks good. It occurs to me that I had a lot of extra wiring associated with my electronic ignition which accounts for more clutter in that area.

    Makes sense. Let me know if you want me to shoot any other under hood pictures to help you place things.
