    Duffy's 1/71 Series 1 240z build

    Good question. Either laser cut paper or gasket maker. I honestly don’t know yet.

    @duffymahoney, what are you using for the paper gaskets between the 2 parts of the horn?
  4. Yes, I would agree with that

    You got Trump, May, Macron, et al... we have Trudeau

    I think politicians are a different kind of breed, a personality type that includes arrogance, narcissism and above all fluid morals/ethics. There are lots of people that go into politics with good intentions, they try their best but find they can't accomplish anything unless they play the game. So ultimately we end up with a group of people to vote for that are worst possible candidates to become a leader.

    78 280z Rear ended...need parts

    There is very little room between the rear valance and the tank. It would be difficult to make anything substantial enough for reinforcement to the rear and still be able to get the tank in and out.
  7. I have not. It would be interesting to know how in order to refresh hem. Provided it could be done without compromising them

    Of course we are. Texas is a very big area, care to refine your location a bit more specific?

  11. I feel worried for my kids ( 22 and 28), for what they have to deal with . And that’s from every side. Liberal, conservative , it doesn’t matter. There is other issues like global warming , a smaller more connected world, and many other things that our unconnected , ignorant bliss life didn’t have to deal with at their age. The times - they are a changing ( confusing) - sing along.

    78 280z Rear ended...need parts

    Thanks to both for your responses! I did reach out to Bonzai Motorworks yesterday afternoon and he said he did not have these parts. I do like the car-part.com reference. I didn't know about that site before. Nobody seems to have the 280Z panel at all. gwri8, thanks so much for the info on the bumper bracket locations and the need to curve the piece as well as the picture! Great looking car! I did come across a place that has the option to give me one identical to your piece in the picture or to get one that is the same overall shaped piece but is a totally blank piece (nothing stamped into it). With the blank piece, I'd have to cut out for the exhaust pipe. With either piece, I'd have to close up the bumper shock holes that are partially cut into the quarter panels on either side. I imagine it would look similar to the attached image when completed with the blank piece. gwri8, could you tell me where you got those tail light panels? Love that look! Ultimately, I won't be going with the bumper either, so no big deal going with the 240 style valence. I'd just like to protect the gas tank more. Maybe with a steel plate between the tank and valence and/or a tank that wouldn't rupture if crunched in an accident but still be able to mount in the same location. But that's another topic, I guess.

    So we're doing a 73 restoration project

    I suspect that the FSM was written before they started using the -2 carbs. I also suspect the earliest production '73s (like mine: 10/72) had the -1s, and they started using -2s a few months later. I'll have to look at the flat tops I saved from my car to see what they are. (they are right now with Motorman7, who likely will be getting around to starting the carb repair/rebuild soon.)
  14. Mazda has trademarked the name MX-6 with the Japan Patent Office. In Mazda parlance, the “MX” nomenclature has always referred to sporty two-door cars such as the MX-3 and MX-5 Miata. A true sports car like the RX-7 probably isn’t … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine

    I spent an hour taping off the horns to protect the electronics. I then media blasted them. Then took them to a auto paint shop. The rears are single stage 2 part black paint. The grills are powder coated bk06. Just like the rest of my z.

    They should be S197 which is 2005-2014. I looked up 2010, I think but it doesn’t matter.

    I will probably ask about that. It's an insulated but not heated section of a big shop. There's a good number of other cars, bikes, and boats stuffed in there so we'll have to see how much room there is.

    Hi jayhawk, I was going off the FSM for 73, which shows this picture: That bowl has 6 screws and nice little easy-to-remove setup for the float. I most certainly do not have that! haha. I agree with you that I have the -2 that the Fuel Modification doc talks about, so it's odd that the 73 FSM doesn't talk about these. Unless there's two versions of it out there. Thanks for the info!

    It would be nice if you could drop the tank somehow at the storage place and have all winter to restore the tank, less down time in the spring.

    Well, as I tried to drive it off to storage today, I had the same fuel issue. It actually fired right up but then died about 2 minutes later. I found that the fuel filter, which was replaced when I started this work, had caught a fair amount of crud. I didn't notice much, if any, before I drove it Sunday, and that day was probably 15-20 minutes of idling and 20 minutes of driving. I blew some air back into the tank and that did the trick. Started up and ran fine. Would it be a bad idea to drive it again? The storage place is ~20 minutes away. If I do clog it again, I can always do the same thing again I assume. And obviously first thing to do in spring is drop the tank and get it properly cleaned.

    Jeff, what are the years of that Mustang GT?

    78 280z Rear ended...need parts

    The rear valance was rusted on mine when I was getting mine ready for paint. The guy doing the welding said it would be better to just replace it so I was kind of in the situation you are in. I really couldn't find a 77' valance in the time frame I was working in so opted for the readily available one from Banzai motor works. It came as a stamped piece of metal but it was flat and needed to be shaped into that curve that it has which added more time and effort, not to mention that the bumper bracket holes do not line up the 280 holes. None of those things were a deal breaker to me since I don't have a rear bumper although they are something to consider and compare too the time and cost of repairing what you've got.
