  1. Been working hard to improve my photography skills so I shot my dad's orange Z this morning. These are my favorites. Shot with a Canon 6D.
  2. I've often wondered whether the problem with aftermarket polyurethane bushings not the fact that they're made from polyurethane, but that they're made from the wrong polyurethane. The traditional suppliers of these PU bushes have always skewed their products toward the performance buyer. The result is a vehicle that's hard to live with on real-world pavement. I'm sure there are lower-durometer synthetic materials -- PU or otherwise -- that could be cast from the same molds. Unfortunately, supporting a second product line called 'street' would cost a lot of money. The 'performance' segment of the market is, arguably, a lot bigger and certainly more lucrative.
  3. We are talking about replacing the original bushing with something that has similar characteristics. We know the PU aftermarket bushings transfer a lot of diff noise to the body so making any bush out of PU doesn't seem to has any advantage. I have made PU insulators for the fuel lines and other stuff for my own 280Z, but getting it to hold to the metal components enough to take the stress would be hard to achieve. It would need to be a part from another car with a similar purpose. For example the original positon for the bolt was in the vertical position, otherwise it would probably fail quickly due to stress it was not designed for.
  4. Weird though, that it's not where it says it is. https://www.classiczcars.com/files/category/10-tech-articles/
