  2. Just ordered BC Racing coil overs and a big brake kit

    So I’m working on getting the old brake stuff off of the car, and my brake line flair nuts will have to be vice gripped off. I was thinking of going back with Nickel Copper lines. Does anybody have a suggestion on a supplier they like/trust? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can get a full throttle body injection system imported by these companies http://lupinusflower.ocnk.net/product-list/24 https://www.rhdjapan.com/oer-racing-sports-injection-kit-standard-type-45mm-l20-l24-l26-l28.html Fixed links Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Mark, You can have a rear brake; I just checked the brakes and the only difference between , you will have buy this backing plate from silver mint motors http://www.silverminemotors.com/datsun/datsun-280z/brake-kit-individual-parts/240z-260z-280z-dual-caliper-rear-wilwood-with-dedicated-cable-caliper-brackets-brake-upgrade-swap-kit And these calipers wilwood 120-120669 / 70 http://www.wilwood.com/Calipers/CaliperProd.aspx?itemno=120-12069-BK which would bee an extra 500 USD + tax and Shipping but that way you could have and brake The dimensions for the AZC and the SMM rear brakes are identical so it is an option though an expensive one. Just a thought.

    You could try selling yours but yeah or you might be able to adapt silver mine motor rear big brake kit with duel calipers http://www.silverminemotors.com/datsun/datsun-280z/brake-upgrades/datsun-240z-260z-280z-rear-dual-caliper-wilwood-brake-upgrade-with-dedicated-cable-handbrake-caliper-stock-cable Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They are from Techno Toy Tuning not AZC, https://technotoytuning.com/nissan/280z/rear-big-brake-kit-240z-260z-and-280z They have had them for about 3 years now I think. don't quote me on that I'm just going off of posts I have read on hybrid Z.

    oooh shiny!!! wheee! I bet you would like a look at the TTT hand brake solution, though I think they get them from a British company that modifies wildwood brakes. but the back brakes calipers are considerably smaller than the front.

    hmm I do have a friend from church with one. But now that I think about it what I do need is a machine shop so that I can have my spindle pins pressed out. I think it will be cheaper than the damage done to my psyche and heart from the frustration of getting them out myself. But anyways the coil overs and the brakes are really nice, Can't wait to get them put on but I do have to buy a few more tools and fluids before I get started. its kinda crazy how light the wildwood calipers are though, only about a 4 lb. for each front caliper and maybe 2 lb. for each rear caliper.
  10. Hi all, I just ordered a set of BC Racing coilers and a big brake kit from TTT. I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations on a machine shop or welder in the D.C. / northern Virginia metro area. Thanks Chris
  11. Cool Exhaust Sound Options please

    If you really want an exhaust you want your car to sound like, take your car to an exhaust shop with a mandrel bending machine and a welder. They will ask you what you want it to sound like and how loud you want it and weld exactly what you want for about $350. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Replacing Exhaust system on my 1972 240z

    The off the shelf systems are nice but you can have a custom stainless steel Exhaust from the header back made for less. I paid $350 for mine and it's a quiet when I'm puttering around and then a loud sporty roar at wide open throttle. And best of all it was made to fit my car exactly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
