  2. Yet another round of wildfires in California, Oregon, and Washington. I am seeing a lot of smoke in the greater Seattle/Puget Sound area, which is a nuisance to work in, but some folks are losing their homes and lives. I hope those here in the path of the fires are safe.

  3. You’re doing it right Dave....driving it. Who wants a hangar queen.. I’ll get mine there someday. Life has been extremely busy. Finally moved in the new place and we have stuff everywhere. I hear you with the AC, not sure how people drove without it back in the day. My car has stock AC but I’m 100% sure it doesn’t work. It’s on the list of items to tackle. Stock engines typically run better and are more reliable. You see these crazy mods people do and their engine sounds like crap. The only mods I’ll have are a slightly shaved head .020, headers and strongly consider SU carb con

  4. Yeah I'm in Seattle as well. The smoke has moved up here since the winds changed in the last few days. We had an West blowing wind early in the week and now it's blowing North/NorthEast. So all of that smoke has moved in from Oregon. I'm inside with the AC blowing and double filters on our furnace. I put one of these on the front of our regular filter: https://www.homedepot.com/p/True-Blue-24-in-x-36-in-x-1-in-Budget-FRP-2-Washable-Filter-HD0124361/202195941 You can also grab one of these as well to control the odors: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Web-20-in-x-25-in-x-1-in-Absorbe

  5. What? It wasn't obvious? Kidding aside, glad to help. Yeah, they took stuff out of the manuals over the years, and sometimes they added stuff. But it seems more removal of detail than added. (And I didn't look at the 78 manual (I stopped at 77), but you better believe I will now!!)) Hahaha!! Edit - It's not in the 78 manual. No surprise there.

  6. Hate to be the bearer of the correct data but 500,000 total under some sort of notice to evacuate or to prepare for evacuation is not the same as 500,000 have evacuated their homes. We live 75 miles from the fire and are on Level 1 evacuation notice but no threat from the fire. Please don't sensationalise the real situation in such a dire time. More than 40,000 Oregonians have already been evacuated, and about 500,000 are in zones that may be evacuated as the fires continue to grow.

  7. This can be a mixed blessing. Sometimes cooling welds can cause shrinkage and warping of panels. I use to do that but I have gotten to where I move around on the car. I come back when the welds are cool enough to touch

  8. If you spray with compressed air, you can cool down tacks quickly and make a lot faster progress - FWIW (for what it's worth).

  10. Portland. We're scrambling around here. As of this morning, more than 500,000 have evacuated their homes in Oregon. That's 1/10th of the population and most of those are on the west side of the state. Several small towns have burned to the ground and now the fires are heading towards larger towns. Molalla and Oregon City have been evacuated. One half mile visibility due to smoke yesterday. About the same today. The smoke is so dense you can look at the sun at noon without squinting. It's just a red dot in a dirty orange sky. The smoke goes up to around 10,000' and prevents fire fighting air dr

  11. Hey I bet I can save you $8k, the suspension might look like it is shot and certainly the original rubber bushings are but you may be very surprised how well new rubber bushings make the car feel. There are more than a few guys here that have gone the poly urethane bushings route then turned around and replaced that with fresh OEM rubber. If the car is a dedicated track car that's one thing, if you're doing a mixture of town and country driving then the harshness of the poly can get old really fast. TTT's stuff is sexy for sure but all new rubber bushings and mounts is only going to set

  12. Here is a link I just posted on Hybridz for somebody doing the same thing. Do you have the pedal box? Not sure that swapping just pedals will work. The easiest thing to do might be to find an old junked 4 speed 240Z and buy the whole car, then find an old junked 5 speed 280ZX and buy the whole car. Kind of kidding, but that's how I bought my first 5 speed transmission, except it was from an old 5 speed 280Z. http://www.carpartsmanual.com/datsun/Z-1969-1978/brake/brake-clutch-pedal
