  1. So tonight was a big car show for all Classic cars. It is held in my hometown of Redding Ca. Most of the cars are big muscle beefy mustyangs, cameros, corvettes etc. But I got to drive me sweet little 240Z car around and I was proud. Got lot of compliments on it too. One guy thought I had a V8 in mine LOL. There was only 1 other Z in the whole car show. Gotta love the Z cars!!


  2. So I am finally getting around to puttin my 240z back together after paint and I am installing the windows. I have a problem though I dont know/remeber where the little roller goes. I am talking about the small piece that has a roller on it. It seems like it hangs somwhere in the door but I dont remember where? Any pictures or comments where it goes or if I have to mount it will be very useful.

  3. All I got to say is you pay for what u get. I spent 6000 on a body work and paint and absolutly love it. It was a PPG paint job. They did all the jams and even the inside of the fenders. Quality workmanship. Took a couple of months too. I would never take a Z to maaco. My advice is fork up the money and do it. You wont regret it.


  4. I bought A fiberglass airdam from Motorsport and the Body Shop that did the paint/body on my 71 240 said it needed some serious prep to get it so the paint wont crack. They said 8 hours of their time to get it perfect because of the little cracks in the gell coat of the fiberglass. I understood what they were saying, but 8 hours seemed ridiculous to me. I took it to a fiberglass specialist and they did it in three hours. If you want it perfect I suggest you find someone who can do it well. Mine turned out perfect but cost me a lot. You can look at my pictures to see it.

  6. I bought the air dam the day the car went into the shop which was about a month and a half or so ago. Then it saw in there body shop for about a month or so... They are all little black cracks that are in just the gel coat. They said to make it perfect it would take about 8 hours to fix..which I believe is hard to believe. They Body Shop is really good they have been doing a good job on the whole Z and it was nice for them to point it out. I am going to take it to a fiberglass specialist tomorrow. Hopefully he will have some good news for me? :/


  7. So my 71 240z has been in the body shop now for about a month and a half and the Z is looking good! Its ready for paint! I got a call from the body shop saying for me to come down and look at the fiberglass airdam that I purchased from MSA. (type 2) . I go and they show me these little cracks all over the thing. Its small cracks in the gel coat. They said it would probably show up in the paint!! And if I want it to be perfect they need to spend about 8 hours on it!!! Whats the deal should it take that long to prep a fiberglass airdam?! I was told all you have t do is sand it down to the fiberglass and then throw a couple coats of primer on it? HELP!!? Im not going to pay another $500 to get the damn thing prepped. Other than that the Z is looking good and there doing a good job on the restore of the body.


  8. So I found a LSD 3.54 gear ratio differential. If I swap this into my 71 240z that has the stock differential which i believe the gear ratio to be 3.36 what kind of difference will I see. Is this a better upgrade? Any performance difference? Also I am running a 5 spd tranny and l24 modified.

    Thanks
