  1. You're welcome. Let us know what you end up doing with the flares.

    Bracket

    Like @heyitsrama, I thought it looked like the radio bracket.
  3. I used Rivnuts to attach my flares. The curvature of the flare brings the top edge of the fire snug with the fender. There are a couple places where I could insert s sheet of paper snuggly between flare and fender, but I believe that is more due to irregularities in the flare or the fender. A solution to eliminate even the smallest gap is to run a section of vintage VW Bug fender welting between flare and fender. I had initially planned to do that, but was pleased with how closely the flare fit to the body without it. The welting is wide and you would need to cut triangular shaped pieces out of the lower part to facility bending/curving and leaving a gap for the attaching screw that goes into the Rivnut. Here's a link: https://www.jbugs.com/product/6730.html?utm_content=shopping&gclid=Cj0KCQjwm6KUBhC3ARIsACIwxBiqriBdDnm73bShSLTwe7wbl9b8efluH6ub93oOYRCG-rVc4Rjo2tAaAmZ9EALw_wcB
  4. The front fenders would be easy. But, why not Rivnuts?
  5. I've been working on reupholstering the seats this week while listening to this.....
  6. Not just gasoline for cars cars contains farm harvested content, but also jet fuel. A story on the news yesterday showed how plant based cooking oil from airport restaurant deep fryers is being converted to jet fuel.
  7. For the first time in the 51 years I've been pumping gas into the tank of my 240Z, today it got to try some $6.09 a gallon gasoline. It's got to be better than the 25¢ a gallon gas I used to give it in 1971.
  8. By "low, or no, speed" I meant when parking or maneuvering in and out of tight parking spaces at speeds under one mile per hour due to the increased size of the rubber to pavement contact patch. Once the car gets rolling, steering effort seems no different than with original width tires and acceleration is what it is with a 50 year old sports car.
  9. I have the 15" Konigs on my '71 Z with the tire size you mentioned earlier. They fill the wheel wells nicely with no rub. Steering effort at low, or no, speed is more difficult than with the original 14s and narrower tires. For me, it was a good upgrade.
  10. Do you have the '71 aftermarket AC with the old style compressor mounted by the fuel pump or a later style rotary compressor?
  11. As mentioned by w3wilkes, the cable is connected to your radio antenna. In case you want to put in an original radio at some point, be sure to identify the electrical leads for the power antenna in your wire bundle before the dash goes in. It will make hooking up the dash mounted power switch easier when the time comes.
  12. Decades ago when my dash started to crack, I drilled a small hole at the end of the crack. I was an aircraft maintenance officer in the Air Force at the time and knew that procedure worked well on C-130s when sheet metal cracked. So, I gave it a try. The dash is still in my Z. The crack eventually got bigger over the years. But, the "stop drill" procedure worked for years. Good luck with whatever you decide to do to save the dash. They all have a "Best By" date.
  13. Double faced tape isn''t going to keep the spoilers in place very long once you achieve highway speed. Both front and rear need to be bolted on and that means holes. I had a Spook on mine for decades and like the look and the downforce.
  14. Not sure if this will help, but here are two scans from the 50 year old installation booklet that came with the ARA AC setup that was installed on my Z in 1972. Scan1.pdf Scan2.pdf
  15. Today marks 15 years since I joined this forum. When I bought my brand new 1971 240Z 51 years ago I could not have imagined that I would still own it in 2022 and rely on maintenance advice and encouragement from a global community of Z owners. I would like to thank everyone who has helped and entertained me for the last 15 years, especially Cliff and Charles. Of all the car forums I follow, this one is the most friendly and helpful. I always feel that I leave with more than I bring. Thanks, Dennis
