75 280Z project


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I used to own a blue 2+2 280Z and then sold it and now I am back with a green 75 280Z. Currently I am working on getting the interior redone. So the interior is pretty much stripped. I am currently removing the tar (using the dry ice method and its coming along well) and getting a small rust spot fixed. Here are some pictures and I have some questions. thx in advance.

1)Regarding the rust spot in picture (behind the passenger side seat) in picture 4&5 - how much do you guys think it cost for it to be properly repair? 75-150 bucks?

that isn't that big of a hole, I would suggest you go the strip to bare metal ... cut out the rot area, then either weld up with a small patch (get a buddy to do it if you can't) or use some mess and proper body filler to plug up the hole and seal it, See these links:

I used these to eliminate my antenna hole on my 280z ...

... be sure to cover the bottom of the area with a good sealant. I used a roll on truck bed liner over my Por-15's bottom to repair the holes I had.

The job is half a day and will cost you a lot less in money and time than taking it to someone else.
