  1. I, too, have a pair of NOS storage covers on my Z. As Kats said, I take the hold-down knob off completely, and use a fairly thick and large black rubber washer for a bigger footprint and flexibility for soft, even pressure.
  2. I have a piece of NOS jute for the 1969-70 passenger side under-seat and tool storage area that measures 8.27mm in thickness.
  3. This is just a shot in the dark, but I had a clunking noise when shifting. Found that the two fasteners securing the mustache bar to the rear diff housing had loosened up. The clunking went away when re-torqued those nuts.
  4. I totally agree with everything that 26th commented about the durability and lack of protection this front overrider bar provides. Here is a picture of my car when new with the addition of this bar, installed by the selling dealership. Dan
  5. Trouble shooting electrics is not my thing, but,I do remember that tiny adjustments on a set screw on the back of the hone housing makes a big difference. You’ve probably already gone there, but this set screw adjusts the gap of horn coil points. Here is the reference in the Service Manual:
  6. Got the same set a few months ago. Wish I had done this years ago. The perfect tool for my perfect Z.
  7. I don’t know if this will add to the glove box discussion, but I have this NOS glove box with two notches and the bag with “A Glove Box” description on the parts tag. There are no chalk marking on the box.
  8. I’ve used Plasti Dip and it works great! It can be brushed on as well as dipped and looks as good as original rubberized tabs. A couple of coats or whatever looks best to you.
  9. A lot has to do due with shape of a 240z fuel tank. The top of the tank on the passenger side is higher and that is where the sender resides. The majority of the 15.9 gallons is contained in the lower half of the tank. This may make sense once you look at the tank and location of the sender.
  10. If you want to take a deep dive into these door panel screws and finish washers, here is a thread I started about 16 years ago.
  11. Dave, I have a 1971 series 1 car, so not sure if what I have would be the same for your 280z. the original trim screw for my car is a black oxide, self tapping, oval head Philips screw. The finish washer is a clear plastic rounded, or dished washer. The screw measures approx 9mm of thread length with a total length of approx 13mm. See photos below. Hope this is what you are looking for.
  12. I’ll have to agree with 26th. The proportions are wrong. The air dam opening should be narrower, and the upper grill opening should be wider than the air dam opening. Don’t know if this makes sense, but the styling makes the front end look heavy. Think of the bumper placement on my 240z as it divides the grill opening. Just my thoughts.
  13. Hi Jerry. Just a thought. If originality is important, my car’s riser tube is original. the outside is some kind of fabric and is very close to “sailcloth white”, a paint I used to refresh mine. See pictures below. btw, good to see you back! Dan
