Thanks. Couldn’t find (and probably not afford if I did) two oem competition seats so these will do, Great quality seats.

 

Where did acquire the seats?  I have this upgrade on my list and I am with you on the OEM seat costs!

I don’t think they have this model available in the us.

Iam about 178cm tall and 80kg heavy, you shouldn’t be much bigger then that to fit in these.

Well, they are made upon your request and you have some options if you like to run a harness.

They are about the same size as a compe seat so that will mean you will sit a tad higher then the 240z stock seats. They look very black in some pics but they are very close to the oem interior.

I used a couple of old rails from some corbaeu seats I had laying. You can use the 240z oem rails, just weld a plate front and back and drill holes for the seat.

Heres they pics I have of them.

Not my car but one of my R&R (Rescue & Refurb) projects: a 240Z grill retrieved from a salvage yard car.  Full disassembly, damaged vertical struts were replaced with parts purchased from another member, stripped to bare metal, multiple primer coats. wet sanding, assembly, color and clear coats.  Whew!  This one will go up for sale at some point.  Many thanks to @CanTechZ for all the research on the OE-like finish for the grill and rear finisher, see this thread:

Got a ”new” amp/fuel gauge from a Euro spec car, and some clear turn signal lenses.

Power washed the paint off the rust on old blue two days ago.

Today I removed the EFI system and harness.

Tomorrow I hope to get SUs installed along with a fuel pressure regulator.  Hopefully blue will make it to Atlanta and win the ugliest car award 🙂

LOL, nope, I plan to keep it real (ugly) but comfortable.  I have BMW leather seats and plan to super sound-proof the interior.  AC too...that should keep her happy. 

Hopefully I'll have time to build an 88mm pistoned 2.9litre with triple SK's and a low ratio differential to keep the rpm's down on the highway.  Right now I plan to get SU's on the existing small chambered L28 to work out the bugs.

For exterior a Gnoze spoiler ZG flares and lourvre.  It will be a rat rod but comfy.

Just to add to my previous post, when I arrived, there was only one other Japanese car there, an RX-7 with a V8 swap. I walked around to take photos, and when I got back to my car, there was a Skyline and a 350Z parked by my car.
