  1. Interesting that your car has a rear sway bar. I don’t think the Z’s ever came with a rear bar from the factory. Do you know if the previous owner installed it?
  2. Great looking 70…..let me boast a little and show you mine LOL. Jim @jfa.series1has one he can show you too!
  3. Yep……From the quick glance I got, she’s quite the find….a real time capsule! I think Jim will agree a great color too. Glad you’re on the forum……If you need any help, we’ll get answers for you……we are all “Legends in our own Minds!” Congrats
  4. Vintage Rubber door seals are awesome. Easy to install and work and look like stock. IMO
  5. Good answer….Get a box of assorted sizes. You’ll have all the O rings you’ll ever need. Just type in O Ring Kit on Amazon…770 pieces for $11.00. 👍
  6. Simply put…..they work and they look original. The door seals are press on (no glue) and easy to install. The doors close and seal like they should.
  7. Hi Jeff…..Happy New Year to you too! No more garage space…..so no new cars. I always enjoy motor work, but all five cars have L28’s modified to the max including 2 strokers! I’m kind of shocked that your garage space is so limited in AZ. I was hoping I could watch you build something new 🥳.Hope you are settled in, doing well and ready for 2022! Best Regards G
  8. Congrats to @Mike on another year of a big bunch of Z Crazies still posting on this site. Another year of @siteunseen with a new computer.....kind of like giving a loaded .357 to a two year old, @Patcon with 2 projects that may never end......EVER, and @Jeff G 78 adjusting to the Arizona climate, and posting pics of a race car that needs to be eating oats with Secretariat!@Zed Headwill answer all of your questions and 85% will be correct. If you want to solve any electrical problems, the only person to contact is @SteveJhands down. @Captain Obviouswill still swear that flat tops are great......3000 1973 Z owners that switched are wrong lol. @HS30-Hwill poke at you till you finally admit that he is probably the most knowledgeable member ever! @Zupwill once again be the nicest member and @motorman7will continue to rub your nose in a before and after pic of every part of the Z anatomy until you feel like a total failure lol! @EuroDat, @grannyknot,will show up from time to time with some decent stuff and the rest is history. Sorry for all I missed......you all are awesome and Happy New Year to “What did you do to your Z today 2022!” Guy
  9. Vintagerubber.com. By far my favorite......easy install too.
  10. Looks like more than the cars need a restoration. Looking forward to the time we can restore ourselves instead of the cars LOL.
  11. I agree. Very simple and works! If you don’t want sparks, you can use a hard plastic material or wood dowel…..doesn’t take many pops with a hammer to “git her done!”
  12. 1972……..Atlanta to Virginia…..reverse order of your Z.
  13. Wow…..Talk about a hijacked thread! Whatever happened to the new Proto Z?
  14. My opinion exactly……Nissan has never really recovered their loyal followers after the S30 body style went out. The 240Z draws huge attention from the younger set at all Cars and Coffee events I go to. It worked for Ford and Chrysler and Chevy…..why not bring back the excitement of something that memics the car that put Nissan (Datsun) on the map…….and I’d call it a Datsun Proto……that would really bring em back!!!!!
  15. I agree ……the front is not good IMO. This is how it should look…..this would triple sales IMO. Ford did it with the Mustang and Chysler with the Challenger.Come on Nissan….nostalgia is what we’re looking for…..give us a cool Z!!!
  16. My thoughts exactly. Putting em together is most of the fun. 5’s enough though, even though I think a Sunshine Yellow Z would be nice!
  17. This is great news! Has anyone tried any of their product? If so, please keep us updated with fit, finish and quality. This could be big for Z restos. Their prices are very reasonable too…..if the parts fit!
  18. As to original color……I think the original color was probably about the same as what it is today……should be fairly easy to dye or spray to match.You did a beautiful job of cutting your replacement. If it were the color of the original jute, it would fit right in with all the other items that you have brought back to original status. Now, put a set of 7 inch Panasports, a front and a rear spoiler and a noisy exhaust system and go drive it! A really nice resoration….congrats!!
  19. I think I would stain, paint or use some other method to color the juke to match the original color. The only thing that stands out as missing the original look. Just my two cents worth.
  20. 1) Bleed the front master cylinder resevoir again 2) then bleed both front calipers again. If that doesn’t help, remove the master cylinder (you don’t have to remove the lines to push it aside), then pull the plunger and check to see if the reaction disc is in place. 3) if not in place, fish it out and super glue it on to the plunger. Good luck
  21. If indeed, your problem is caused by the damper bolt bottoming out, no matter what your set up is,(and it sure sounds to me like it is), I can promise you that you will destroy the crank in short order if you keep running it. If it were me, I would 1) either reinstall the old damper with the stock bolt, or 2) add another spacer washer to your set up to prevent the bolt from bottoming and see if the noise mysteriously disappears. Nothing else I can add.
  22. Thanks @Zed Head......I couldn’t figure out how to find those. Pretty much sounds like his problem.
  23. If I recall, the washer had a step down. If I installed it one way, it dropped into the opening of the damper and caused the bolt to bottom out in the snout......BAD! If installed on the flip side, it wouldn’t drop in and the bolt wouldn’t bottom out. I just ditched the expensive “so called” Nismo bolt combo and went back to the stock damper bolt and washer and the noise disappeared. I pulled my hair out too. You can thank @Zed Headfor this if that was your problem.....he saved your arse a ton of hair pulling. I have a thread called “Strange noise coming from my L28” or something to that effect. If someone knows how to find it, it explains the whole process. I don’t know how to find my old threads. Every time I learn how to use this site, @Mikechanges it LOL. Good Luck! Sorry Mike.....still waiting for that trip to Holland. PS. I added pictures of that expensive bolt and washer that caused the problem.
  24. Great point @Zed Head. If he didn’t go back with the stock damper bolt, he may be having the same problem I had using the performance damper bolt from Motorsports. Like you said, the bolt and washer combo was too long, bottomed out in the snout and made a weird noise under load because it didn’t snug everything up. Pulled my hair out trying to find the noise. Make sure you use a washer and bolt that is short enough not to bottom out. You want the bolt and washer to snug everything up. Very, very important. I started a thread on the subject, but I think it was @Jeff G 78 that had the pic.
