Front Frame Headlight Support Parts?


Recommended Posts

So I started repairing the headlight support but the front frame piece was mangled worse than I'd hoped.  I suppose I can repair/fabricate it, but this is not my area.  Does anyone know of a vendor that makes them?

The yellow paint is to seal up the clean metal until I get back to work on it... whenever I can carve out the time...

Check out https://www.facebook.com/Auto-Panel-Solutions-418351785395614/ this guy has many pieces that other places do not.  It sticks in my mind that KlasicFab may have these also, https://kfvintagejdm.com/product-category/datsun/?swoof=1&product_tag=240z&really_curr_tax=37-product_cat

 

I'd start with these two, I'd be willing to bet one if not both will have what you need.

And me without a FB account.  Bah.  

I think I've heard of that one.  I'll see if I can piggyback off of someone else's FB to contact that one.

Yeah I looked over it and they don't seem to have that particular piece, but I am bookmarking the page because there's plenty of good stuff there.

I'm probably going to ask my father in law to get me in touch with the other one, since he does have FB.

Auto Panel Solutions is in the UK


And he’s a top bloke!!! Very friendly and helpful with great panels to boot!

He goes by the handle “woody” in the UK Zclub.

If you don’t have FB but want to contact him, just set yourself up on the UK forum and use the “conversation” option to send him a PM.

Ask him if he has them, KlasicFab's website does not have everything available listed...just reach out and ask him.  🙂

@ArcticFoxCJ instead of the yellow paint use "silverish" paint that can be welded it's perfect for the job, you can ask a shop for welding stuff.. local.

BTW... is it a 260 or 280z you are working on?  

It actually isn't just yellow paint.  It's a rust sealant that came in a few different colors.  I'll look into this silverfish you mention though, since it would be nice to not have to grind the sealer off before I start cutting and welding to fix the rust.

It's a '77 280Z.

Super!

Post up pics when you get it and relevant pricing

I certainly will.  It'll be a while though, package tracking estimates delivery in December...

Cost was $100 including shipping.  The part itself was about $66.  (Ish... exchange rate being what it is.)

What about December???

I'm so confused...

Yeah the tracking info on the shipping company's website estimated delivery for December.  I guess that was wildly inaccurate... but I ain't complainin'!

Remarkable quality for this price.
