    Help Clear My Garage - Package Deal $950 for all 280Z Parts

    I'll be interested in how you make out. I've just finished the wheels-up resto of a 240 - from parts of three cars - and find myself with a pile of "stuff" similar in magnitude to yours. Good luck with the sale.

    For Jim and the gang in Alberta.. Stand up to watch!

    JSM and psDenno Careful what you wish for guys! I'm about 90 miles north of ZCars Jim, and while we didn't get much snow, we've just gone through the coldest September since 1965, and now November weather in early October. I've got a list of outdoor, nice-day house and car jobs (*) I've been wanting to do since Labour Day, but the nice day hasn't happened yet. Must admit I don't do very well in 90 degree F, but a break from the crap we've been getting would be nice . *Wax and saddle-soap old Benz; rake leaves; fall fertilizer; flush cooling systems; winterize motorhome; paint trim on #2 garage; weatherstrip back door; take just-completed 240Z out for a nice, long, country drive, etc.

    New dash cover, and old Fact. Serv. Manual

    Jamal, It appears I already have a paypal account, but they can't tell me when I last used it (perhaps once, 10 - 12 years ago?). In any case, as I read it, you send the money to them, using my e-mail address as an indentifier. That would be albertaracers@yahoo.com. They will in turn notify me, and arrangements will then be made to get $ to me. I in turn will need your name and / or e-mail address. If I'm off base on how to proceed with this, please let me know. Alternatively you could send cheque or money order? To be clear, I'm sending you the dash and service manual at a price of $60 U.S., plus shipping cost of $90 U.S. Total $150 U.S. Look forward to hearing from you. Best regards Richard

    Great! I'm not on paypal, but you're the second guy to ask for it, so I guess I'd better figure it out. Can you give me a day or so to get it set up? Best regards, Richard McDonel

    New dash cover, and old Fact. Serv. Manual

    Bought this dash from MSA a couple of years ago, but never used it. Still in the original box - see photo.$30 U.S. or $40 Canadian + shipping Factory service manual for 240 chassis and body. A bit rough, but complete (the copy I'm keeping is in comparable condition - I just drilled it for a large-ring three ring binder, and it works fine). $30 U.S. or $40 Canadian + shipping.

    240Z parts for sale

    240Ziggy, Try this again. I seem to be having problems having my post show up. I wrote yesterday saying that I had not received a message from you since yours of September 7, 8:30 AM, and further, that I did not know what "PM" meant. But my message is not showing up on this thread. I went on Canada Post site, and using a random Toronto postal code came up with a shipping cost of $37. Are you OK with that? If so, I'll get it off to you Monday. I looked at the second set of seats I have, and both have tears; one on the seating surface, and one around the perimeter. I don't think you want them.

    240Z parts for sale

    Pete, You had earlier sent me an e-mail enquiring as to Canadian or U.S $, and I replied that C$ were OK - we're both in the same country. Somehow that e-mail got sidetracked and I got a message from "Mike" advising me I could only reply to you via the Z car website, so I'm not sure you ever got that reply. In any case, yes send me the postal code and I'll start bundling things up. I may have a decent seat cover - I'll let you know later tomorrow. Richard McDonel

    240Z parts for sale

    240Ziggy. I believe so. According to the Gabriel website, G44869 in the front strut part number. They do not list G44868 - I'm guessing it's the right one as it's only one digit removed. Probably no longer in stock, and they're not making any more. Going out to the garage this evening - will take photos and send. $48 for the set, and you pay shipping. Fair?

    240Z parts for sale

    Pete, Thanks for replying. I'm no help on the padded firewall panels, but I'll root though my piles and boxes with respect to the emblems. Sounds like you're doing a very precise restoration. Last week I was at Pebble Beach and followed some of their judges around - yeah, they seat that kind of stuff! I'll get back to you in the next day or so. If I can't be of any help to you, I would suggest you try Jim Karst in Calgary. z240@shaw.ca. Great guy with tons of knowledge and parts. Best regards, d*** McDonell
