There's also these guys, https://kfvintagejdm.com/shop/datsun-280z/complete-floor-pans-datsun-280z/

I bought some panels off them last winter for a 510 I was working and they were really nicely made, but like any aftermarket panels they have to be worked and fitted.

Datsunzparts is not a real place. Probably some guy making parts out of his garage. No email replies. Sny others who make $300 280z floors

You may be on to something. The oldest reference I can find about Zedd Findings is only 21 years old...

datsunzparts is Zedd Findings, yes it is a real business and he takes orders all the time,  Charlie might be too busy to answer you're email immediately.

Zedd, norm and charlie. Is that like moe, larry and curlie? Who runs datsunzparts? Still looking for a more reliable place.

Here, take this: Chill Pill.jpg

Maybe this will help you with identifying the players...

I would suggest that you be patient. I have seen a person get black-balled by shops because he came across as high-maintenance. I don't think you'll find someone else at Charlie's price point who would be more reliable.

One more screen shot for good measure:

Zedd Findings = company name

Charlie = owner founder, he's the man

datsunzparts.com = the internet domain (aka website) for Zedd Findings...it is not terribly uncommon to find a company with a URL that does not match their company name

 

Charlie has been doing this a long time and is quite reliable.

Is datsunzparts and showcars-body parts one in the same?

Absolutely not, geographically they are based in the same area but the guy at showcars has proven himself to be a bit of a scammer.  He boasts a huge variety of makes and parts but in reality he has very little in stock.  I haven't checked him out in a while but most of what he offers is fiberglass, only when he gets a fully paid order does he start to fabricate the part, then if the parts arrives at all it will be many months away and a pretty shoddy in its fabrication.  At one point he was also offering Charlie Osbourne's pans and rails at a sizeable mark up, I don't know if that is still true.

A number of members of the OntZclub got burned by him and it is common knowledge now to steer clear no matter how good his offer sounds.

Oh wow that's a blast from the past!  I had completely forgotten about showcars.  Yes these are two different companies and different people.  Showcars as I recall offers a variety of fiberglass kits/pieces for the Z, I've honestly not heard that name in over a decade and am not even sure if they are still around...though from what grannyknot says above perhaps they do still exist.
