Hands up who's in Perth (or Australia...)

Recommended Posts

I think there's 2 ways to repair the dash cracks.

The simple way involves filling the cracks and smothing out the ridges caused by the cracks, then vacuum moulding some new vinyl over the dash.

The harder way involves removing all the old vinyl and repairing or replacing the foam padding, then vacuum moulding some new vinyl over the dash. I think thats how dashboard restorations do it.

I want my Dash done too. Maybe we can all get together and do a bulk order and get some sort of discount.

hi guys

just puttin my hand up as one of the melbournian zedders! yeay

my 0.2c on the z rarity? Bloody rare, one might say rarer than a raw steak? LOL

I spent over a year lookin at zeds to find a good one. I have been all over the joint, willianstown, lara (where I bought my first z, a dog) donvale, carlton, etc. all over the joint.

In my travels I have seen a heap of dogs, with alot of owners descriptions not matching the actual product. The classic line of most? "just needs a tune up" Needing alot more than a tune up.

I also picked up an original service manual used by the dealer service centers for the 260z in my serach, for nothing. Which is good.

I havent seen a 240 in the flesh yet, not only can I not get out to them quick enough half the time, most are out of the price range, 5-7k+ so yeah.

I was thinkin about joining the ndosc but hasnt happend yet

While I am in the aussie relm if anyone around has a drivers door for a 260 2 seater let us know.

cam

finally found z one

'77 260z (L28 about to go in)

79 alfa gtv (DD)

Gday all,

Im from Perth too, as i think many are already aware, however, that was not the purpose of my post. Since no-one appears to want to reply to the 'WA datsun meet' thread, this one seems like a 'next best thing.' So, are WA Zedders and the like still interested in meeting up at some stage during this fine new year? Regardless of whether a car club holds the meet [ozdat for instance] or not, theres no reason why we couldnt organise a sunny sunday afternoon of some sort. Im definitely keen, but am i just calling out to no-one? Interested to hear from you all, regards,

Tom

Hey Tom. You'd be welcome to come to the next wazcars meeting. We dont mind the occasional other datsun turning up. Rosie O'grady's South Perth, Sunday January 30th from 3pm. We don't do much except talk about datsuns, and have a beer. Though we should be planning/finalising this years calendar of events.

The ozdat boys are having a bitching session on the ozdat at the moment. kinda goes...wah, wah, spent all this time planning a cruise... wah, wah, wah, ...only 5 cars turned up...wah, wah, cry, dummy spit.

Tom, I turned up to the meeting point to check out the cars that were there, but i couldnt make it on the cruise, i have a z in the garage coming up to 2 years since i started pulling it apart, and weekends are valuable z restoring time.

I had a look at the map they handed out at the cruise. I didnt have a navigator, and it looked like you could get lost pretty easily.

The details were posted on Oz dat, thats where i saw them.

Some of the cars were pretty nice, 2 1600's in particular, but they left early and didn't cruise either. Most of the other cars didnt look all that good. And they were contemplating putting cars in Motorvation, after seeing their cars, I know why so many people said they were deluded.

Hi Doug, By station wagon, you mean 2+2? Sjcurtis collected alot of information, I made a web based database system so that people could put in their details, and everyone could see the results. I'm gonna convert his data and put it in the sysem when he sends it to me :)

I've just registered the details on the 3 cars that have been in my possession.

Can't help for thinking out aloud, but would it be possible to include RHD zeds that made it to other parts of the world, eg UK and Europe etc?

There RHD status bonds them all together.

Love the way you've set this up, the inital visual stats on the page are impressive.
