  1. Past hour
  2. At that level of detail, my stainless plate is (nominally) four thousandths (.004 in) thinner than the plated original. So I guess it's a performance increase too. Not sure how much weight difference that would result in, however.
  3. Assuming that the steel is the same gauge (thickness).............................
  4. Hmmm. As simple as the question seems, I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you asking "Is there a weight difference between my new stainless piece and the old triangular holed carbon steel piece? If so, then (ignoring miniscule differences in density between stainless steel and carbon steel) the answer is "No, they are the same." But if you are asking "Is there a weight difference between my new stainless piece and the older 240 version with the round hole?", then the answer is "Yes, mine is lighter because the hole is larger." Here's a pic of a rusted up older 240 design with the round hole in the middle:
  5. It sure is slow work! Takes time to get it right. Yeah I haven’t even done any panel work yet but can tell it’s going to be super time consuming. Thanks mate!
  6. China makes $^!# products with no regulations or laws or consideration for its workers.... if you can't easily see it you are blind. Wait until they start copying your exhaust with $^!# metal and under selling you.......
  7. Today
  8. I looked at it again and found the rating is based on the last 12 months 10 positive reviews and 1 negative then some strange math. Still has 1063 feedback and I looked through 8 pages and saw only one neutral. Positives: 10 Negatives: 1 This member's positive Feedback percentage 10 / ( 10 + 1 ) = 90.9% Ebay is all about selling something, anything for any price. They just want to make their 10% on the sale no matter what. Now they make 10% off the shipping too. Which then can cut into your personal profit. You have to pad the shipping charge to cover the fee. Kind of screws the seller IMO. I don'y buy much on eBay anymore, just every now and then when something good shows up for a reasonable price. Farther and fewer nowadays for sure. I agree with you though, the guys seems to have a chip for sure. As I expect you saw has not been on here for 4 years either.
  9. Use "stroker" in your search terms and you'll find a bunch. This guy might actually be close to you.
  10. Once again, what do think your going to see/read in this thread titled "original boobs thread"? This one is titled... Trump and political comments, opinions, supported by fact or not simply move on past if you want to talk about your car. I could care less about mine right now. They maybe for sale very soon.

    (I was going to post this in the joke section, but felt the need for some levity. We need to keep a sense of humor during this thing.)
  12. Farmers are committing suicide over trumps trade war with China. We have to stop that nut job and his deal making before he "smartly" bankrupts the country. Stable genius my azz.

    That's impressive. Is the number scale thousands, tens of thousands?
  15. I think that the score is "all time", but they only show the last 12 months of reviews. eBay is not really about protecting buyers, it's about making them feel comfortable buying. I generally avoid strongly opinionated people. Good luck to him though.
  16. Not sure if this will help but recently I uploaded templates for the floor tar mat insulators to our cad files area. They include the cut out locations for the areas marked with x's in the picture above. Here a link to the files:

    Bolting in Seats

    I just did this recently. Use some plumbers putty to stick the washer and lock washer on so you don't have to hold them. You can then get the nut started with one hand.
  18. We've had mandatory masks in NS since July (like Taiwan)... it works:
  19. 4 canceled bids in the $5K range three of which had 0 feedback the last was in the 400's. 6 solid bidders, the leader has been in it for some time now. I only saw one negative and it was someone upset that he sold the item local and did not delete the ad fast enough. Not sure why that would take him down near 10% though.
  20. Hello, since I am currently restoring my 1973 240z and the l24 engine will get pulled out I am considering doing some performance mods. I have found that installing a crank with a higher stroke is a common way to get some extra power but i am not sure if it would be smarter to use a regular l28 crank (like the l26 did i believe) or the diesel ld28 crank and if this would even fit/work? Thanks for the help in advance. Greetings from Germany.
  21. So I'm not sure these pics will be of much help to you, I'm nowhere near ready to cement the seals in yet so I can't replicate what is happening to yours. But I wonder if it isn't as easy as lubricating the seals a bit so they don't crumple but slide over the paint into the right position or maybe put the seals the way you want them and then keep the door closed for a week so they can take on some memory?
  22. Looks like he's a member here. I thought the name looked familiar. https://www.classiczcars.com/profile/3084-theramz/
  23. The point of isolating the political opinions to one thread is that any of us can then Ignore the topic. Everybody wins, the guys with opinions can duke it out and the rest of us don't have to see it.

    Bolting in Seats

    Slide the seat all the way forward, recline the set forward as well...this will give you your best access. It is challenging no doubt. Slide your fingers under and feel around to get the nut started, you will be doing this blind as there's no way to be able to see what you are doing under there unfortunately. Once you get it finger tight use a combination wrench to tightening it down. This is about the best description I can think of right now. Hope this helps.
  25. which is why I posted, no one changes their minds and there are different sides each have members here. Typically I would not post but after having to withdraw from this before I felt like getting my view stated, then leave.

  27. My vote would be not to have political rants on this site. I have always thought that this site, just like sports is an escape from the political B.S. Please find a political site to your liking and do your venting there.
  28. What do you think FOX would say if they found out Obama had a Chinese bank account?
