I have been watching a video series on youtube from Japan of a 240z restoration, and they found one somewhere. I'm pretty sure it was a new piece since there werent any drill holes and cuts in it.

Been working on other areas of my 73 restoration and mentally put that panel on the backburner figuring I'd have to scratch build it.

I think it is for the 260-280, so some slight differences from the 240.

Its for 260, but the bottom piece I'm looking for seems very close to working wtih a little massaging. That NOS, hate to cut it up.

Any chance it's called '51 Machines'?  If so, they are doing some amazing work on a very tired 240.

I've learned a lot watching, but I don't see how they keep that car straight with all the metal they've cut out.

 

Its bolted to a frame jig. About half way through the video's he put it on the jig and straighten the car than started cutting the front.

Agreed, you would not want to cut up a NOS part for just a small section of it. I couldn't see the whole part in you pic. I just thought I would throw it out there. 

I have a 260Z I am parting as well I PM'ed you some pics of that.
