  1. They just pull off on my '71 Z. No sure if they do on earlier years.
  2. Or lonely shut-in living in his mother's basement and reaching out for social contact from a caring classic Japanese car enthusiasts group. We'll probably never know.
  3. Welcome! What Z do you drive?
  4. Before I painted mine earlier this year, I read all the threads on this forum by others who had painted their tail light finishers to determine opinions on a close color match. After sanding and a coat of Rust-Oleum Flat Gray primer, I used Dupli-Color Perfect Match Dark Shadow Gray BFMO360 which is listed as a Ford color and topped it with Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Matte Clear. I'm very pleased with the results.
  5. Average annual income in Indonesia is $837 so labor costs are way low and they make their equipment last. The shop reminds me of one near where I lived in the Philippines a very long time ago. They hand hammered Excalibur replicas on the chassis of your choice for very little money.
  6. Any updates on how your Z project is going?
  7. Nice job of fixing your spoiler, Jim. Mine broke when I hit a snow drift and split from side to side. I was an Air Force aircraft maintenance officer at the time and took it to the shop where we fixed the fiberglass nose radomes on C-130s. The guys got it back to looking like new and painted it with flat black aircraft radome paint that it still wears almost 50 years later.
  8. I still have the BRE "Spook" front spoiler that I put on my '71 Z in 1972. It's no longer installed, but served well in holding down the front end at speed for many decades. It also worked fairly well as a an unintentional snowplow when I lived in Kansas.
  9. Those rocker panel trim pieces were a dealer, or owner, installed upgrade on more than a few Zs in the 1970s. They were silver/chrome accent pieces prior to being painted your car's body color and gave the Z a bit of a lower/longer look. You might find a few rust spots under them when you take them off.
  10. Lawn art....better than those plastic pink flamingos. 😎
  11. I think I've read a couple of those over the years.
  12. Disclaimer: While you might be tempted to use tooth powder on your windshield, don't use this https://tinyurl.com/24vedxpb on your teeth. 😎
  13. I remember tooth powder. The homemade equivalent is baking soda and a bit of salt. Shake it into the palm of your hand, rub the tooth brush on it, and brush.
  14. You can give patching a try. But, rust is a little like icebergs in that often you only see the tip of it and a lot more is hidden. Poke around and see how solid the surrounding metal feels. You may end up replacing a whole panel if you plan on keeping the car for years.
  15. Use this link: https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic08f If you plan to totally rebuild the seats, you'll need new foam, new upholstery, maybe seat webbing depending on year of your Z, spray paint for side rails and seat frame & back. MSA is the source I used recently and I'm pleased with materials and results.
