    Bought the 'family' 1970 240Z from my folks. My step-father was the original owner. He kept it in very good condition for 39 years. Will try to restore it and keep it in original condition as best I can. VIN is HLS30-02614 so its an early one.<br /><br /><br />

  1. I got a kick out of this. I think his media portrayal is dead on.
  2. Thanks! Got the engine harness tabs painted and engine harness installed. Also painted front of radiator support the hood hinge tension rods. Started installing glass. My son stopped by to wash his 350Z, so it was nice to have a bit of company while doing the assembly. Here are the latest pics.
  3. Got the manifolds and heat shield on. Started attaching the carbs and balance tube items.
  4. Moving along well here. Got the motor and complete drive-line installed. Added some more brake components and a few engine bay parts. Planning on putting in the exhaust and intake manifold assembly tonight. Might even get to install the carbs.
  5. This helps to clarify everything
  6. Got the rear suspension in last night. Looking forward to getting the drive train in this weekend.
  7. The problem I have with the CDC guidelines is they are just one entity and focus on disease control. They are not sociologists, Legal experts, financial analysts, behavioral specialists, psychologists or statisticians. Personally, I think all of these disciplines need to be taken into account when running a country and managing a pandemic. Unfortunately, I don't think that is happening.
  8. How ironic, you just proved my point.
  9. This really is incredibly sad. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/17/politics/child-abuse-pandemic/index.html Again, sometimes the cure is worse than the poison. For Massachusetts, statistics tell you that there are well over 1000 cases or unreported child abuse PER WEEK in Massachusetts alone due to the lock down. I guess the governors are OK with that.
  10. Got the POR-15 finished last Tuesday. Undercoating sprayed on Thursday. Most of the fuel and brake lines on Saturday and front suspension put in yesterday. Moving right along here. Hope to have rear suspension in on Tuesday. E-brake and smaller lines in on Thursday. Then complete engine and drive train installed this coming weekend. The more I get on the car, the more it opens up space in the garage. Here's a few pics.
  11. Those are amazing! Best I have ever seen.
  12. Car is now home from the paint shop. Started applying the POR-15 to the underside and wheel wells.
  13. Had a crazy revelation after my trip to Target yesterday. The closing of all the restaurants, mom and pop shops and other small stores is the stupidest thing we could possibly do as a country to ease the pandemic. By doing this, you are forcing EVERYONE to only shop at a few stores. This is like forcing everyone to drink from the same cup, infected and non-infected alike. In my few trips to Costco and Target in the last month, both places were packed with lines out the door. Hard to believe that no one in those crowds was not infected. If I could have picked up my hair gel (That's a thing here in California) at a local salon and my ice cream at a local ice cream shop, I could have avoided the mass of humanity, all drinking from the same pond. Same thing with food. Instead of having 100's of restaurants to choose from, my choices are limited to just a few fast food places. Again, the lines are so long to the McDonalds, Carl's Jr, etc. that I just drive on by. Walked in to Chipotle and ordered to go. Again, the problem here is we are all being forced to drink from the same cup, or same infected cashier. Unless of course, you no longer need to eat and own a bidet. Anyway, just had to rant here. The insanity of this all is beyond me. Thankfully I pick my Z up from the paint shop this evening or I think I would lose my sanity.
  14. This company will actually rebuild your flat tops. They do pretty nice work. http://paltech1.com/pricing/ http://paltech1.com/
  15. Pics from the paint shop. Got the grey primer on now.....we're getting closer.
