  1. I would think carefully about any mod that requires drilling holes or cutting. The spoilers will require drilling holes in your hatch, and the L28ET swap may also, since putting a later 5 speed in an early car typically requires additional clearance at the front side of the shifter cut out. Hard to say what else will be necessary to run wiring, mount intercooler, oil cooler, additional gauges, etc.

  3. I'm far from an expert, but I've broken in two engines now, including one recently, so the info is fairly fresh in my mind, and my understanding is that the window of opportunity to set the rings is within maybe 50 to 100 miles. During the break in process you don't want to take it easy (except at first). Previously the thought was that you have to baby your engine for the first thousand miles, which from what I've read is the opposite of what you want to do. Cylinder pressure will force the rings out toward the cylinder walls, thus breaking them in and creating a good seal, so based on my res
  4. That would make sense. I saw those too, and thought to myself "that would be a great place to tie a roll bar into the roof".
  5. What kind of L28 are you looking for? That's an L28 turbo. That also seems like a ton of money for a longblock that needs a rebuild. I'd look on craigslist or the FB classifieds, not ebay.
  6. That seems like an awful lot of work when you could just sell your tank and buy the correct tank, either used, or new, since there is now a company making new ones, although I don't know if they're making the ones that are exactly identical to a '76 tank since the fuel tanks changed a bit over the years from 70-76. I would also greatly prefer a full size spare over a space saver.
  7. Deleting cookies for HybridZ fixed the problem for me. Edit: Nevermind, I logged back in and it's back to 500 server error.
  8. The emblem holes will be different, and as mentioned, maybe some extra tabs for the fender liners. There's two kinds of 280Z doors, 75/76 and 77/78. 75/76 are pretty similar to 240z doors, but I think there may be some slight differences in mounts for the arm rests (not sure, never checked), and of course the door beams. 77/78 doors are completely different, and while they may bolt up, the shape of the door jamb in 77/78 cars is different, and IIRC even the latches are different. I wouldn't bother with them if you have an earlier car.
  9. As I recall, the beams in orange were added in the later cars to deal with the added weight of the larger fuel tank, and probably the general increase in weight the cars had by then. Earlier cars didn't have them, and it's possible you could remove them without consequence. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but I'm not convinced the structure would be any worse off than a 70-76 car.
  10. First one is BMW Monte Carlo Blue. Second one I'm quite certain is factory 115 blue. It's a fairlady owned by a member here, although he's more active on instagram https://www.instagram.com/autootaku/
  11. What a fantastic car to start with. I doubt there's many original cars left in that condition. You might try this process to remove the yellowing from the plastics, such as your expansion tank, since you've got the early plastic one. Not sure what differences there might be in the plastic you have to work with versus what was used in the video.
