  1. Good that he has a nice home. I bet he gives lots of kisses.
  2. How much do you think it would cost to have it restored if you couldn't to it yourself? LC
  3. I tried the 1895 bulb for the license plate and it did't work. It was to small. I guess I'll try the 89 bulb for a 72' 240Z.
  4. Do you have to specifically have to register your car as an antique with the DMV to get that type of coverage or just a standard registration for your insurance company to pay that kind of money in case of an accident? I have mine covered for $30k, but I don't think it's registered as a classic or antique. Thanks
  5. Looks like he might have found someone and sold it. It's not listed anymore. Did anyone here purchase it? Thanks Larry
  6. Thanks for everyone's feedback. Larry
  7. Found this early Z on Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Datsun-Z-Series-base-coupe-2-door-/141655790164?forcerrptr=true&hash=item20fb57d254&item=141655790164 I live close by so I contacted the owner via ebay so I could take a look in person. I didn't get a response. I wanted more interior pics of the floor boards. It looks like he must have pulled out the motor when it was painted since the engine bay isn't colored the same way as the exterior. Wanted to know if he worked on the engine when he pulled it out. The rear bumper looks bent down. What are your thoughts on this car? Thanks Larry
  8. Looks like it's back on eBay. Wonder what happened. Did the buyer back out, you think?
  9. Has anyone inspected the car on site? Thanks
  10. Good question! This brings up another question. Should the final coat of the dash be the same color of the other trim areas. For example if I paint the dash in Landau black should I paint all the interior in the same color? Thanks Larry
  11. Thanks so much for the detailed information. This is really helpful. I ordered the ball-shaped Dremel bit that you suggested and waiting for delivery. Thanks Larry
  12. If you had a hairline fracture would you still need to widen the gap? Thanks Larry
  13. Hello Carl Thanks for the input. Really good feedback and information. I'll look at the trunk mounted units as well. I also have a 1995 300ZXTT with working AC, so I might end up doing what you do. In the hot summer months pull out the 300ZX and when the weather is nice I can drive the 240Z. LC
  14. Cool. No pun intended. LC
  15. My car doesn't have an air pump. I thought the compressor would be on the drivers side where the air pump would normally be. LC
  16. Thanks! I'll look into that. Good to know. LC
  17. Thanks Mike I appreciate the info. I'm feeling better about the cost considering all they would have to do. Thanks LC
  18. Thanks for your feedback. If anyone knows any other shop down here in SoCal that you can recommend let me know. Larry
  19. Hello I own a 1972 240Z without air conditioning. The dealer installed AC was pulled out. I've been searching for someone to install one for me. I don’t have the skill, space or tools to complete the task. I have my eye on the Gen II compac from Vintage Air. I currently live in Southern Cal and at some point will be moving to Texas. The quote I received from a shop in Santa Ana, CA called The Air Shop was about $3,200. That would include the Gen II, an electric fan and installation. It’s my understanding that this is very labor intensive. I just want to know if this is considered a reasonable cost or maybe they don’t won’t to work on it and gave me a high quote to get me to go someplace else. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Larry
  20. Did someone pick it up? I don't see it on eBay anymore. Thanks
  21. Thanks for the responses. Much appreciated. May have to consider the stainless steel approach. LC
  22. I would like to re-chrome the rear bumper. The bumper is in good shape. No pitting and its straight. I was quoted a cost of $1,000. They mentioned that it would be 3 layers. Copper, Nickel and Chrome. Is this out of line or is this an acceptable cost for something like this. Thanks Larry
  23. Hello Just checking to see if anyone has used Bumpers Unlimited for any rechroming jobs. They are located in Lynwood, CA. (Southern CA). I need the rear bumper rechromed. I'm trying to find someone local. Thanks Larry
  24. Thanks. I think, I'll order one myself. Larry
