Just Another Damned Z Car Project Thread

Recommended Posts

Public Service Announcement: If you buy LED lights from SuperBrightLEDs, you need  two not one license plate lights and the ones SuperBright sells will not fit in your housing. They are trying to make it right by sending me some that they say are shorter, but I'm not really confident they'll work either. The ones Superbright sells are too long and you will not be able to screw your housing back together.

Big thanks to Yarb for sending me an '83ZX Distributor to take my measurements from. My distributor which was a Datsun Comp model was traded for a batch of heat shields which I vapor blasted and made look new. Never occurred to me to take measurements so I would know where the cut needs to be made in the Jeep CAS. Thanks Yarb!

I'd have sent you one back if I was home, but alas I was out state at the time you mentioned this. Glad you got one to measure.

I used these for my license plate and they fit just fine.

Sorry to hear that @conedodger

I had a ladder slide out from under me last week.  A few new cracks that'll go away.  Several weeks off my feet just as I was officially starting the resto of my car.  Got the motor apart and to the machine shop, and now the project is stalled again!

Speedy recovery for you!

What bone?

Right ischium. Hard to walk, hard to sit. Six weeks estimated recovery, and I still haven’t gotten the mail (which was my mission at the time.)

Ice in Reno Nevada? Did you spill your drink on the way to the mailbox?

Sorry to hear that, speedy recovery.

I’m up the hill toward Tahoe a bit but yes, we had 4 days of snow last week. Part of that ‘atmospheric river’ that went through California. When it’s over, I’ll have this custom inflatable donut for sale in the classifieds.
