'78 280Z OEM air filter housing?

Recommended Posts

Dang. That's alot of info. I am surprised no one has done this for the 240-280Z's engine bay. You know engine block, air box etc. I am sure the knowledge is here. I just haven't found it in one spot.

Did some searching on some of the other Z websites and found a "Dupont" brand Mix-Your-Own-Paint formula. Hope it helps...


Subject: Z engine paint (Turquoise)

(TURQUOISE) engine paint used on early Zs.

Find a Dupont Dealer and ask them to mix up a quart (5 or more engines) [or split it in half for a pint] of Dupont "Chroma 1" paint. Be sure and buy the "Chroma 1" catalyst and reducer also.

I have a 260z 2+2 air cleaner the same blue as what you discribe and was going to use Dupli-Color DSFM257 Spinnaker Blue but, it didn't look to be a close enough match after I sprayed a sample.

Gee's photo gallery has a pic titled My brother's 260z 2+2 with a good picture of the air cleaner and the blue used.

Anyone know what the decal might of been?
