  1. All of my 240Z doors stick out at the bottom rear of the door. I'm fairly convinced it's because the door structure is fairly weak, and the door has sagged/warped. My 280Z doors, with the big side impact beams, don't have that issue.
  2. I can't think of a single reason why they'd need to do a burnout, or how that could be helpful in diagnosis or testing.
  3. The rust on the bottom of the A pillar is really what has me concerned. Also, with that hole below the quarter window letting water in, I imagine the inside has more issues than it would typically. I don't think this chassis is worth saving if you're going to pay someone else to do the work. However, it could be a good chassis to learn to work on, if you are inclined to do so, and if successful, you'll have a car that you can say you built yourself at the end of it all.
  4. Are you talking about the engine bay rails or the ones under the floor? Post up some pics so we can see what the damage is. Dented up frame rails under the floor are so common I don't think I'd even bother fixing them unless they're really bad if they aren't rusted out.
  5. I got mine when I was in HS and immediately pulled it apart. I would strongly suggest you don't do that. Keep projects manageable, and try to keep the car running and driving as much as possible. It is far easier to be motivated to work on a car that you can drive than one that you can't. How much metal work does it need? If it needs enough that it really needs to be blown apart to be fixed properly, I think I would just restore the rest of the car while keeping the car running, and then when it comes time to do the shell, you won't have a million things to do, and you can put it back together quickly when the work is done since the other components are already restored and simply need to be reinstalled.

  7. I hope you're not planning on simply cutting off the old roof at the pillars and welding on a new one. The correct way is to replace the skin and leave the roof structure intact. The pillars have a couple layers of metal, and you can't weld them all from the outside, so the end product will be weaker/structurally compromised.
  8. The car looks pretty solid, more so than most, I highly doubt any of the suspension components are rusted to the point of being structurally compromised. You sound like you're pretty young. I think you should spend some more time with the car as is and get to know it, as you don't seem to think much of its capabilities. Zs can be made to be plenty capable without a tube frame, or custom suspension.
  9. Yeah, I don't really know anything about the car, it looks very nice, but it seems to me that the price was driven largely by hype, and people fawning over how amazing it is. It's like they want the car to be more special than it actually is. It's a nice car, but the big deal seems to be that it was used to create a model 240Z (hence why they're calling it the Franklin Mint car), and that just isn't a big deal.
  10. Does it have a solid rear axle under it? Don't see that listed in your list of mods there. Being a V8 swapped Z, you may want to check out HybridZ.
  11. Okay, as nice as it is, I don't think I can justify $3000 for a what amounts to a very nice, and by all means excellent, but fairly simple brake kit. Would like to see some more details of what Jason240Z has come up with, and what it cost him.
  12. Can you reveal what the cost of this kit will be?
