  1. Don't know if anyone else has mentioned this but the BringaTrailer auction website has on offer a pair of ZTherapy SUs. Look all shiny and new and come with the intake manifold. Be interested in seeing what they go for.

  4. In matters of things electrical, I ain't the brightest light. No one has ever called me "Sparky." So in the furtherance of my learning I have a copy of Haynes Automotive Electrical Manual, wherein on page 8 the topic headline is "What is electricity?" The answer given is "No one actually knows." So now I know I'm not alone in the dark.

  7. Thanks for this Guys. The photos particularly gave me some idea of where to got. Contrary to what I had heard earlier, the hose clamps should just be cleaned up - they don't need plating. But the throttle linkage does! I was surprised that the fuel filter holder, and the little clamp on the firewall that supports the power-brake hoses are black - who knew? I think I've become paranoid about stuff like this ever since I followed a trio of judges doing their rounds at Pebble Beach in 2018. Cheers,
  8. @CanTechZ Congrats. You have the first Z car gas tank I've ever been able to see a clear reflection in!
  9. Based on what more sheltered parts (eg steering column) looked like, I looked at what the powder-coat shop had on offer and went with a semi-gloss black that they call "machine black."
  10. I have some yellow zinc parts on my 240 restoration, notably both halves of the hood latch, throttle bell crank, and some nuts and bolts. I would like to get the car as close to original as practical and understand that there are other bits and pieces that should be done, notably the under-hood trouble light, but there are others I'm unsure of. Any advice would be appreciated respecting: Coil holder, fuel filter clamp, door latches, hood support strut, hose clamps, brake line clamps, under-hood fuel lines, fuel rail, engine hoist attachments, and the tube that runs around the back of the head to provide heated water to the intake manifold. And any I might have missed. Many thanks
  11. Hi All, Spindles are sold. Springs and brake rotors still available.
  12. View Advert Still selling stuff When I posted my first ad last month, I had two double garages and one small shed. Happy to report that I have now sold enough stuff that from the the door of the shed, I can actually see the back wall, something that was not possible a month ago. Still quite a bit of stuff to go. For today, not wanting to overload the system, let's go with a pair of new Bradi vented and drilled brake discs, part # 40206 03p02 for 300ZX; in original packaging $90 U.S. the pair, and: Appear-to-be new performance / racing spring set $120. Front springs are 11.5" / 29 cm front. Rear 10 7/8" / 27.5 cm; and New rear suspension spindle pins, $50 the pair.
