Anybody need some misc parts?

    I'd be grateful if you can help me find the following from the 280z the next time you're out there.

    1) The two knobs that control the light dimming of the speedometer/tachometer and lets you reset the odometer

    2) Center map light

    3) Steering wheel if its in good condition

    Please and thank you!

    So, next time I’m out there I’ll take a look for you. I have one extra 280z steering wheel and three 240z steering wheels. I grabbed the 240z wheels to use on my car and was going to restore the extras (got three because they looked rough and wasn’t sure how a restoration would come out,needed backups), plan is sell the others at some point. The extra 280z wheel came with my car when I bought it from the PO. It needs a wrap to cover the rubber which looks pretty sun beaten. Here’s the before and after of my 240z steering wheel restoration. a300d89e51eca8c82b79ca7f48ef3144.jpg1465b9ba1b4730fe28e4316fd617c069.jpg

    Any chance the 280z has the engine bay light or the radiator overflow tank or steering column clamshell? I need any of those.

    It had all of those items. But I’m no longer near that yard. It might be 4-6 weeks before I return. I’ll look next time.

    I’m back to the yard...do all requests remain of effect? All I ask is you cover the cost they charge me shipping to you.

    Yes I'm good for it!
     
    BIG THANKS!

    I got your coat hangers, the J hooks screws were stripped and would come out. The finisher I left because it has a small hole. If you still want it I grab it next time. See pics e5648b27a4718fd0452320e52fbcf03f.jpg585f19ea4b077ec6ac0e0551087acc27.jpg

    Thanks. That is great. I'll PM shipping info and get your paypal address.

    btw if you have more pics of the interior and can post, that would be great!

    Thanks again!

    Meant to say the screws were stripped and wouldn’t come out on j hooks. I’ll get pics next time.

    Might be both. They seat blocks the screw driver and the seat won’t move. The heads were rusty and rounded out. Tried to cut the off with snips and risked damaging them so stopped, I need a hack saw blade next time to cut behind the hooks off safely

    Damn- id have my 10mm working overtime 

    Hell I'd be using a paperclip and cheese if I found one if a yard (MacGyver style...)

    Haha I've only ever seen 1 S30 at our junkyard, and I stripped it pretty good... you never see them around here anymore, especially not in the junkyard...
