  1. Spare tire rim question

    I got the rims back from the sandblaster and it is now time to prime and paint. Do I paint the insides as well? Thoughts?
  2. Series 1 brake issues

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll have to get a good look at it on the weekend. Short days and daylight savings mean that garage hours are cut short in the winter!
  3. I took my 1971 Series 1 auto out for a drive the other day, and the brakes felt soft. The pedal needed to be pressed down all the way to brake. I pulled the reservoir cap off and the one closest to the firewall had almost no fluid. Does this suggest it needs a rebuild, or time to replace? I cannot find leaked fluid anywhere. If a rebuild or replacement is necessary, can anyone suggest a reasonably priced replacement? Thanks!

  5. 240z Series-1 Hatch Duct Clips - $50/set

    I bought a set the first time, but interested in another.
  6. I picked up a Series 1 Blue/blue that the original owner had raced back in the day. He was an SCCA guy and was preparing it to vintage race when he passed away. The car came with a modified air cleaner. Can anyone tell me the purpose? More air flow? Thanks!
  7. Spare tire rim question

    Thanks guys. Here is what I picked up with the car. To the seller, it was an after thought and he said, "you want those?" I am taking them down to get sandblasted, but do not want to bother with the 5th wheel if it does not go to the Z. Tire 1 is the stock (I have 4) and tire 2 is the mystery tire. It might be hard to see, but it has four slots as opposed to the nine on the 240Z stock tire. Any idea what it goes with?
  8. On a 72 240Z is the spare tire rim the same pattern/the exact same as the stock steel wheels? Thanks!
  9. I picked up a 1972 240Z, originally white/red that I am slowly bringing back to life. I am not sure if I will keep the car, but I want to do it right. I have the original steel wheels for it, but they were left outside for some time and are rusty. I will take them to be sandblasted but am not sure of what to do next. Should I have them powdercoated (much more expensive) or just rattle can them when they are clean. What are you thoughts? Thanks!
  10. Waking up a Z Car

    Thanks!
  11. Waking up a Z Car

    I just pulled a 72 240Z into the garage. It has been sitting for a few years, and I am trying to wake it up. I recall an article (perhaps by Carl Beck) detailing how to get a Z running after it has been sitting a while. After multiple searches, I cannot find it. If someone is familiar with that link or thread, can they point me to it? Thanks!
  12. 1970 240Z on eBay with Low VIN?

    Thank you. I picked up a blue/blue a couple of months ago, so this is helpful.

    $2500 and it is yours!

    Other than being thoroughly rotten with rust, a trashed interior, and having not moved under its own power for years, absolutely nothing!

    I hate the thought of parting out Series 1 cars, but some are too far gone to be saved. I have several that I am on the fence about. However, I picked up an auto Series 1 that is a goner. I just have not gotten around to it.
