Hi over here Brandon!  Nice photos, and beautiful Z!

Also it reminded me to swap my Z's windshield wipers, lol.  I have the longer one on the driver's side at the moment...

I was just looking at mine, unhooking trickle charger, and from a recent thread was curious on left and right. My 2 Zs have the angled wiper arm on the driver's side, straighter one on the passenger's. They're both 18" blades.

Nice pics!  Nice car!  Are those 16 X 7 wheels?  What size tire?  I was told by ZcarSource today that those wheels would likely require fender rolling.  I am planning to run Suspension Techniques blue springs and didn't even begin to think Panasport 16 X 7's would rub.  Appreciate any insight you can provide there.

205-55-16 tires are the perfect size. I’ve tried em all. No rubbing with those on my 16x7 Panasports.

Let me know if you want to take a look at my car sometime. I am running Konig Rewinds 16x7s.

Are you at stock height with the car?  The ST springs I have will lower it about 1.5 inches I believe.  But that is nice to know.  

Your pics show an incredibly nice paint job in my opinion.  I hope the paint on the car I am restoring comes out that nice.

I actually decided those would be the wheels I went with a while back, but I keep rethinking.  Seems like a very nice wheel especially for the money:

Konig Rewind Graphite 16x7 Wheel Kit, 70-85  - four wheels which come with center caps, stems and lug nuts for $474!!!! plus shipping...

The Panasports cost $1300 for four plus $110 for shipping and come with center caps and lug nuts.

Quite the difference.  Glad I bought the Panasport C8's for my track car like 20 years ago - can't imagine what they would cost now.

Don't want to jack the thread... again super pics of your Dad's car, Diseazd!

I’m running Eibach springs with Tokico blues. BTW, the Panasports are IMO “best in class”. You’ll live with your wheels for a long time. The car is a 35,000 original mile car that had zero rust, and I mean zero. My painter is an absolute perfectionist! He block sanded for over 50 hours on a car that just had minor flaws to begin with. He’s the  best that I’ve seen. My Safari Gold car (Brandon shot these too) is another one of his paint works. Thanks for your comments.

Discount Tire Direct has good deals on Rewinds and twice a year, they also do a $100/set mail in rebate.  I bought two sets of 15x7 for my race car for $360/set delivered after rebate. It looks like 16x7's are currently $520 shipped with a $50 instant savings plus a 5% mail in rebate, so somewhere around $450/set shipped.  https://www.discounttiredirect.com/buy-wheels/konig-rewind

I hear you on the Panasports.  I think I paid $1200 for my set of 16x7's close to 15 years ago before Rewinds were available.
