Mark,

I was just about to suggest giving Mike McGinnis a call at Banzai Motorworks until I saw this post. I bought some engine paint from him on multiple occasions and it was spot on. He may also have the correct blue paint for the air cleaner housing. You may also try with the following website:

http://www.oem-surplus.com/

They have a brand new air cleaner housing for a 280ZX and if nothing else the color photos might help you determine which way to go. In addition I once heard somebody say that Alfa Romeo light blue was a close match.

On another note you may want to buy a couple of "OK" stickers from Mike at Banzai as they are spot on replicas and would look nice in your passenger side quarter window with that shiny new paint. I say a couple in case you have to replace it later on. I think you can also still buy the "Datsun 280Z" dash emblem as well.

Are you still planning attending VIR this weekend? Any more 350Z's planning to go?

Daddz,

Yea there are about 25-30 Z's heading to VIR this weekend for the GA Cup race on Sat. Mostly 350Z's but all Z's are welcome. It is sponsored by the Triangle Z Club of NC. Let me know if you decide to show. I'll be up Friday afternoon & Sat. Head home Sun. AM. Link:

For those of you who don't a 350Z has won the last 2 races in the GA Cup. Performance Nissan are my350Z.com sponsors and BJ Zacharias is a driver for the 350Evo team and a my350Z.com member/sponsor also. 3 hour race is Sat. at 2 PM.

I didn't know where that sticker went. I bought all the under hood ones. I should get final approval on the 611 paint mix tomorrow! Thanks for the advice on the air cleaner!
