    If you see a ferrari red 1971 240Z with the plate JAG 636, that used to be my car! Regretted selling it ever since! There's a workshop in Sungai Besi near KL that did the paint for me using the same paint as the Ferrari F1 cars!

    Dude get a set from Bad Dog, the price is good and the product is excellent. I am sure they can get them to you via DHL or Fedex. I used a set on my Gnose project.

    Hi Tony:

    Grettings from Puerto Rico. Great job and outstanding goal you have aimed. The rescue of this survivor will mean a lot to you and we all know as Z owners that it will become part of your life. Keep on the project and post more pictures. Hope that your leg is healing and that the project could speed up during the summer.

    That's a nice looking conversion!

    Have you changed the radiator? You might consider an improved rad to keep the coolant temps down.

    How are you? I still have the gearbox from JAG 636. ;-)

    I see you are back in this part of the world. Mount Kiara has changed since you were here last. There is another red 240z flying around since you left. Its not JAG636. Driven by an expat who like yourself found a 240z to enjoy the Kuala Lumpur traffic.

    Hi Trex! How the heck are you? Funny you should still have my old gearbox! Is it still working? I actually changed it 3 times! The second box had a lousy ratio, the 3rd one was spot on though!

    That other expat actually lives in Mont Kiara! I went back there a few months ago and he was stranded in the middle of the road! I stopped to help and found that his fuel pump was dead. Tapped it with a spanner and it burst into life, but advised him to get a new one. Looked like a nice project car though. I think it was a 72 if I remember rightly.

    I always wish I had given him my number in case he ever wanted to sell it!

    Cheers,

    Ian

    Did you try Tan Chong Motors at Kepong? I was amazed what they had in stock for my 240! Even ordering from Japan was easy through them and they could get anything! I drew the line at a new dash though - RM6K!

    Great project you got there :) Well done ... btw from which site did you get most of your parts from? I've been buying parts from the US and i've got to admit that the cost of the shipping is very expensive. By the way, im from Brunei Darussalam & i own a 1977 260Z 2+2 as well and a 280ZX. Nice to know that there's a Z family nearby :)
