  • About My Cars
    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. I will admit I am not three brightest bolt in the pile but after doing restore to my antique Asus TF700t table I found out the Z car forum on Google play station is no longer compatible. Where or should I say when did I miss the boat with the forum. Is there another version that I can use? I will say if it means buying a new tablet, don't think that Errol happen. Great forum and thank you in advance for any input. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Classic Zcar Club mobile

  6. Hi Sean, was gleaning through the threads and saw you mentioned possibly offer a choice on down pipes for the S30. Have you come up with those options(are you planning round ports?)? I am a ways out from needing an exhaust but would like to have the exhaust on hand as I near that point. Also, wanted to see what you have come up with for shipping cost to the US? I am in Wisconsin, zip 54457. Thank ya! Have Merry Christmas. Wayne Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF700T using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Parts look great. They did a nice job plating. I will have to search around here in Central Wi. Spokane has a fair supply of Z. I am originally from Cheney. Hope to return when I retire in the next couple of years. If I do not sure how to move to unrestored 71 Z's. Look forward to following your post.

  10. New Tool Toy

    finally got another day for the door and new toy. Did test fit of the door skin. Clamp the skin to the door frame tacked them together at the top. Then got out the door skin hammer and dolly to fold the skin crimp over. Finally what I have been waiting using my pneumatic skin crimping tool. WOW! Was that quick and slick! To finish the day off I shot the Interior side of the door in epoxy primer. Will do the skin next and then onto finishing the door and peel the driver door apart! Enjoy the Laborless Day weekend.

    Great day, temps in the upper 60's. Got the door sprayed with expoxy primer once dried late this afternoon I strayed the Lizzard skin sound control. Tomorrow I will spray the ceramic insulation. If all goes well next weekend I will get time to put the door skin back on. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Only 2 applications combined with pressure washer. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    He is right but if you use a water base stripper and washing a high pressure washer you should be inn pretty good shape. Plan is to strip the car to as close to bare metal then sand blast and follow up with more pressure washing. Never can wash to much. Overall both of the cars I have in really good shape.

    Thanks Dennis. This car 2 layers. The 2nd car is 4 layers plus the primer. One car at time, right. Enjoy the weekend. Wayne Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile

    Didn't work on the door today but did work on stripping paint off the body today. Decided to try an old bodyman trick stripping paint. Was taught (ok, was told) to put the chemical stripper on the surface and wrap it plastic wrap to trap the chem vapor on the paint and to keep it from drying out on you. You use a lot less chemical too. Sent from my SM-G930V using Classic Zcar Club mobile
