  1. Hi z3beemer. Here is a picture of my ‘71 z. If this is the seam in question, hope it helps. let me know if you need more pictures.
  2. As far as originality is concerned, this would probably go un-noticed except for the very discerning ( guilty here!). there is some very fine (small) print on NOS OEM battery cables. Point deduction/probably not.
  3. If you look more closely at his web site , you may find that ordering out-of-stock parts from him may still be an option, given that he makes reproductions. https://www.240zrubberparts.com/apps/webstore/
  4. https://www.240zrubberparts.com/ I think you will find that antenna drain grommet here, as well as many other reproduced, and hard to find, rubber parts for our Z cars.
  5. Yea, looks kind of iffy to me. Here is the one I made for myself.😂
  6. Couple of question for the experts about this car. Picture #230 in the auction shows a very early oil pan. This was the pan that was susceptible to cracking from vibration which required a brazed patch reinforcement. Does anyone know when this pan was superseded with the newer design? An 8/70 car sounds a little too contemporary for this pan change. Also, there was a question as to whether this should be a 1970 car as opposed to the auction stated 1971 car. The model year change over usually occurred in august, and this is a 8/70 build. That would tell me that this car could be either a ‘70 or ‘71 model year car. Don’t want to be too nitpiky, but I’m in the “too rough for a 31M mile car” camp.
  7. Picture #2 (below) shows the bottom surfaces (front of car points up)... early type (55415-E4102) on the left, later type (55413 E8301) on the right... Enter “differential insulator” in the search function, and you will find a wealth of information about these insulators. x
  8. Conedodger, I am so very sorry for the loss of your friend. Please trust me when I say that I know how you feel. After turning 78 last week, you and I share very similar life experiences, and, with age, comes the accumulation of life experience ghosts which can be, at times, overwhelming. Thank you for sharing and remember the good.
  9. Jerry, not quite sure what you want to do. The filter housing just pushes on the air pump. is this the filter, or silencer, that you reference? As you can see in the photos, there is a rubber O-ring that will resist pulling off the old silencer. Dan
  10. Randalla, when I needed to get to the gage mounts, I found that removing the heater control panel allowed best access with no damage to glove box liner, or anything else. You will need to remove the radio knobs, and the 3 heater control cables, one on the drivers side and two on the passenger side under dash. When removing the heater control facia panel, the map light will want to fall out and hang by it’s power wire so just unplug it, but be aware that the wire lead is short and can be difficult to fish back out. You can now pull the heater control panel out far enough to get behind the dash gages. I use plenty of rags and masking tape on sharp edges so as not to scratch up the center console or anything else. Let me know if this is helpful. Also, this would be a good time to replace all of the gage light bulbs which you can find at Banzai motorworks if originality is important. Dan
  11. I have a NOS antenna mast but don’t want to screw off the tip for fear of scoring the top mast segment. I can tell you that, with the mast fully extended, there is 13.75” of mast filament exposed from the bottom end of the extended mast. hope this helps.
  12. Just wanted to add my .02$ to the conversation, but with no absolutes. As my car was also restored by Pierre in 2002, I was also made aware of a total of 200 proposed VR cars but can’t recall the source of this information. I did find an old clipping in my archives which did reference 200 to corroborate what Chris mentioned, but this obviously is not documented by Nissan or the VR program.
