'73 240Z rebuild...slow project but I love it :)

Recommended Posts

hello my friends

Thought to open a new topic rather than continue my Z progress in the introduction area...you can see how I started there

Introduction

This is a copy of my last reply in the introduction... sorry to duplicate it but I have to start this topic with something ;)

I knew it was going to be a slow progress due to the lack of time... I do all the things on my own and since I have a family with two little boys, the time for my Z is very limited.

So, all this time I did the following tasks ;) 

Removed the factory tar insulation to check for hidden rust

Epoxy primer everywhere...

Then painted original silver (the oem color is silver)

New tar insulation

On top of that I added an extra thermal/ noise insulation

and I hope tomorrow find time to finish with the jute carpet padding on floors and tunnel

I finished the dash, I am really happy with the result...

The dash looks good. What products did you use?

I didn't do something new... I just followed the procedure in the following link

http://www.classiczcars.com/topic/22325-dash-repair-processpictures/

I used the Great Stuff Pro, a bumper repair (not the SEM but one I could find in my country), a texture paint spray and a trim black spray.

 

I cleaned the dash, reinforced the back area where the crack was

applied the Great Stuff

after a while I open some space for the bumper repair

and then... I sanded and sanded and sanded again and again until the outcome was good for me...

somewhere here, I finished sanded...

then cleaned the surface and sprayed the texture paint

20kk.jpg20ju.jpg201jh.jpg201r.jpg

 

and then cleaned the texture "effect" with scotch brite...

then I sprayed with trim black, then again with texture paint, scotch brite again and then one more time trim black spray and finished :)

finished photos on my first post ;)

1489068729010.jpgA silver Sharpie paint pen on the radio's face plate works great.  Thanks again @psdenno

 

 

That's one of the correction I need to make ;) Already have a similar pen but thanks for the info :)

the other corrections are

cleaning fan controller from paint

find a way to rewrite the FM/AM on push buttons

find a way to print on the plastic clear face the FM/AM sequences cause during the cleaning few erased :( or just find another in good condition to buy (anyone??? :) )

Thank you my friend but the only thing I need is the plastic clear plate with the FM/AM sequences. not the whole faceplate.  But I found there the rear strut plastic caps in a nice price. Thanks ;)
