  1. Parts waiting to go in......this will be a Series One.
  2. Charles........Correct.....and it should be coming home in the next 3 months.
  3. The painter is finally getting around to working on the Z sculpture......I’ll update with progress. Thanks again Zup ......you are a true friend for providing the door.
  4. Bart........Curious where you sent your hinges to be rebuilt? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks Guy
  5. I put up pictures in my garage of my two favorite Z Heroes in the world. Z Doctor of Roanoke (RIP) and Eiji Hosomi of Datsun Spirit. Merry Christmas all!
  6. Not only is it color, but Safari Gold color!
  7. FWIW, I bought a pair of new 240Z front Konis to replace a blown Tokico in my rear Ground Control sectioned coilovers. I had the same gap as shown above and had to return the pair. The Konis are taller than the Tokicos and the struts were sectioned to fit Tokicos. Many thanks to my friend Jim Karst for selling me some nice used Tokicos, or I would have had to add a section to my strut (PITA). In the future, I would suggest shock tubes err on the side of too short, not too long (much easier to add a spacer to center the shock in the strut).
  8. Quote......“Go grab the "next best" 5 speed. Shifts fine on the floor, all gears turn the output shaft. Stuff it in the car, go for a drive, can't get it in 5th! Just grinds. Oh crap. “ I had a rebuilt 5 speed that would just grind going into 5th. Eiji said it’s because I had the wrong shifter. Is that correct Jim? Do the 5 speeds (ZX) use a different shifter to get into 5th gear. I never attempted to rebuild a tranny either, but I never had any problems with a 4 speed B tranny, so I gave him my two 5 speeds and I only have to shift 4 times in my Z’s. LOL.
  9. Looking at these pics it makes me so glad I don’t live in Canada (nothing to do with the enthusiasts). Cool car, something about the 510, but your driving season is so short. Makes me shiver just looking at that unheated garage.
  10. Sorry Site.....I don’t know the part number....I depend on Motorsports or ZcarDepot to get it right.

    Good plan.....I like the 2x10’s. Can’t ever have too many motors!
  12. Kudos to Chris Bishop of Japanese Classics...........beautiful!
  13. According to Dave, I have the new ones (orange axles). I bought them in June.....you can see they are orange on my first post (100 mm).
  14. Dave.....Thanks for the update on your FutoFab CV axles. I certainly can attest to the fact that I have had zero problems with mine. Also, installation was a breeze and now, if I ever need to remove them, it is a ten minute job (just remove the 6 allen head bolts and you are loose). I have no noise and with well over 200 horses at the wheels, I feel like the strength is a big improvement over the old u joints. I guess there must have been some issues with the old WolfCreek design, but as far as I’m concerned, you’ve improved the product to perfection. The only thing I would suggest is some of your torque specs seem too high for the bolt sizes.....I wouldn’t want to break a bolt. Guy
