  1. I sent him a PM and reached out. What seems to be the issue. I will do whatever I can to help you out. May have to be in the evenings when the kiddos are asleep, but lets work out a time to meet! Send me a PM of the issues you are having and let us start from there! 🙂 Always happy to help out a fellow Z guy! 🙂
  2. The ONLY garage I know in Houston that specializes in old Z's is awesome Z. He has been working on them for decades. I have never had any work done there, but Frank Castleman use to have his work done there I believe.
  3. LOL, the Z is is not for sale! 🙂 But it is silver with black inteiror.
  4. Barely used embroidered Datsun Racing jacket Don’t let the size fool you I wear a L for all my jackets and this still fits me fine - it runs small 12 dollars plus shipping smooth lined inside with pocket very warm

      yeah for some reason the format has changed on here from what I am used to. No worries.

  6. hello!  

     

    Here is a feed of all the pics I have ever taken of the roadster since I took delivery in 2012

     

    First thing I did when I bought he car was go through the brakes. Bled them and replaced the front right caliper.

     

    Then I stared the redo of the entire interior. All the vinyl, door cards, dash, seats, carpet with sound deadening, new steering wheel, got the heater working, cleaned all the electrical connectors, restored the factory speaker and I got it to respond to the radio (although no music comes out, but I think that is because I have never raised the antenna). I got a tonneau cover for it.

    Then I replaced all the hoses and got the vintage Weber DCOE 45s rebuilt and tuned them. Car will start up right away even after being left for months without driving. 

     

    Engine has the comp datsun package on it.  ORiginal owner I got it from rebuilt it and while details are sketchy I believe it has high compression pistons and definitely has a the Datsun C  cam as it really comes alive beyond 4k.  I replaced the exhaust and installed a new resonator to make it quieter so a conversation could be had while driving.  

    It is a lovely car and now that I redid the windshield trim the top closes easily and seals well.

  7. Thanks bud. Maybe I will keep her around for this years car show circuit where I live. I as invited to show her in the collectible cars section of the HOuston Auto Show this year. So that will be fun. Love to take her out on sunny days and just go nowhere. It is amazing to hear those webers sing with the top down. Will probably use bring a trailer when the time comes. I may also give the original owner a chance to buy her back.
  8. It is a 1968 Datsun 2000. IT has the Comp oil pan, Datsun Comp C cam and the dual DCOE 45's. I just redid the interior, pulled the dash got the heater working and put some insulation down on the floor. It is a supremely good driving car.
  9. Guys, I about ready to sell the 1968 datsun roadster. She is ready for any adventure you may want to have. Just seeing if anybody is interested.
  10. was never my intention man.. just been so swept up in life. z has been incredibly reliable for so long, I have not started any major projects short of the 5 speed bud. May try to to the texas 1000 again next year if money works out. IF not that, maybe the orange blossom special. My Z needs another vintage rally to have some fun in.
  11. I Find it amazing at how closely we built our cars! From the STI diff to the L28, to the 5 speed... WOW. Just need to get me some headlight covers! 🙂
  12. Wow, been so long since I posted, just been swamped with daddy duty. 🙂 But 5 speed is in and is the bees knees man! I love being able to cruise on the freeway at 70 and not be at 4300 RPM. Z car has been running strong since 2017 ZCON and not batted an eye for any kind of Issues. Very proud of her. My roadster was selected to be in a rare cars of Houston display at the Houston Auto Show in January. I have been busy detailing her. Which leads me to my question. I am trying to get off that black RTV like adhesive you use to secure rubber trim. It is really thick around the entire windscreen and I need to get it all off. It is sitting on paint, so I cannot use brass brushes or the like unless I want to commit to repainting the windscreen. Which I really would rather avoid. How do you get old RTV/adhesive off paint without chemicals that would destroy the paint.
