  1. heres an odd one

    That roof kills it for me. I don't think that is a $14K car. Otherwise it looks pretty nice. If you don't think about the absence of photos for every major rust area on a 240...
  2. 32K mile 1976 280Z Original - Survivor

    I'd buy that in a second if I could come up with an excuse. Good luck!!!
  3. Single stage or dual stage

    So... based on my own experience I'll offer this. I am not a professional and, in fact this was the first time I ever painted a car. Single stage CAN be cut and buffed to remove minor, um, imperfections, but from what I have read, base + clear coat can be a little more fixable. For example, if a gnat lands in your base coat, you can fix it before you clearcoat and no one will know the difference. Same deal in the clear, if that gnat lands in it now, you can cut the clearcoat and not worry about burning through you color.
  4. Single stage or dual stage

    This will probably start an extended debate. Are you spraying it or having it professionally done? IMHO there isn't anything wrong with single stage. I did my car in single stage and it looks great.
  5. I'd be inclined to think you're starving carb #2 of fuel. I agree the fuel line routing is unusual.
  6. electric fan sensor

    Would you share the details on the switch you ordered. Does it thread in directly or use an adapter? Which location are you using?
  7. Hmmm... Similar to my own setup. I hope you get your price.
  8. electric fan sensor

    The water in the lower hose is the temperature of the radiator. That doesn't tell you anything about the motor. The temperature of the water in the upper hose is the temperature motor. That's what you want to know. Consider this scenario... Your thermostat is stuck mostly closed. The sensor on the lower hose will see nothing wrong. The radiator is easily able to cool this small volume of water. Meanwhile you engine is roasting. A sensor in the upper hose would detect this condition.
  9. 1973 240Z Resto Mod for sale

    The mods don't bother me. My concern is you want $25K but didn't post pictures of the common rust areas.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Throttle Cable Upgrade - All The Way To The Pedal?

    No, I'll put something together one of these days... :-)
  13. 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.
  14. 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..."
  15. 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?
