    Well, I actually have (2) 1971 240Z. Amazing the importance of timing! Roger Schmidt was contacted by the owner of these two cars. Prior though I had contacted Roger looking for a rolling chasis. Roger called me 3 days later and linked me with JP.
    There was one catch, the sale was for both cars along with many many new parts to build one "new" care but they were both in Texas, why this project is referred to as "The Texan Twins". Both of these cars are rust free, no rust at all. I live in Wisconsin. So, I spent my summer making 2 trips to get both of these cars myself, my daughter, and even
  1. Diseazd, Could provide a link where your friend sourced a full quater clip from? Thanks, Newtonhubcap Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  2. If Zcon comes to Wisconsin maybe hold in Elkheart and may be a day on Road America road race course! Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile

  4. Order the tool from Astro (company who makes it). Yes, the tool fold the lip of the door skin up and back. Panel just slips off. As for blasting, if you sit in one spot you canwarp the panel. I move from one side to the other. Eventually I get the whole thing done. I Like today, took the cross bar out of the door and blasted both the door frame and door skin. Ready to rust seal with KBS rust blast. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  5. I know this thread long and great but I was reading through it again that raised a question. Being new at actually restoring a z car then was some discussion that alluded to sheet metal parts (fenders) available from Nissan in Canada. Is that correct? Back to focus on the current thread but a simple yes or no would appreciated. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  6. Not sure what you air drier system is but I use La-Man 110 drier at the compressor and their Spg102 inline dryer. Very high quality and very about providing dry air. Great project to follow. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  7. Serban, not sure. From whatI know this is everything from the engine to the dash. If I, I will get back with you. Thank you. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  8. Odd, I tried uploading the pictures but crashed. So, trying again through the laptop. Like I mentioned this thing worked really slick.
  9. My new toy tool arrived yesterday and with the weather being crud I just thought I would try it. So, what I got was an Astro DS2000 door skin removal tool. Took 30 minutes max to strip the door skin off the 240z door with the flange fold still attached. Can't wait for the DS1000 door skin crimper to show to reinstall the skin once done. Plan is to bead blast the inside of door frame and back side of the door skin. Seal-paint and reinstall. Hopefully good for another 40 years. uploadfromtaptalk1498172594724uploadfromtaptalk1498172701625 Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  10. Was able to purchase the A/C for $155, original price was $300. Comes with everything include dash harness. Will stuff it away when I get closer. Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  11. I looked at the fan control panel and it is a 4spd fan. That should be factory air. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  12. Here is the link to it on eBay.

  13. Ok, knowing the wealth of information have to ask for thoughts about whether the a.c. unit from a 74 260Z will fit? I have an opportunity to purchase an entire a.c. unit that includes control panel, blower box. Only things not include is the dash pad and center console. I have till tomorrow to make the call. Thanks for you input. Newtonhubcap aka Wayne Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. The engine bay frame rails, did you fabricate those or purchased. If purchased could you provide the vendor? I am in need of a complete set and was impressed with the construction of them. Feel free to pm me. Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T using Classic Zcar Club mobile
