  1. Just a few random observations and comments here from the peanut gallery. I have two good friends, both PHDs in biochemistry and California State University professors. One thinks the vaccine and mRNA technology is amazing and is very pro-vaccine, the other is on the other side of the coin and won't touch the mRNA vaccine. Both far more knowledgeable than me on the subject, both have their arguments for their stance. I find that pretty interesting that both highly educated professors have such diverse opinions. Also, I have mentioned this before, but I have a hard time with the altruis
  2. I share your common thought on the media, “The true enemy to all of us”. I loathe the media and its’ agenda which I believe is to cause division, strife and fear in their effort to promote their business and control the masses and the direction of the country. Unfortunately, we allow it, and bite into the agenda hook line and sinker. Sadly, I only discovered this about 4 years ago when the whole controversy about the border wall came up. As a resident of San Diego, I am quite familiar with the wall and all of its pro’s and cons. While the local news station here would
  3. Someone sent me this chart. I think it's perfect.
  4. My only thought with the post was that it seemed like the east and west coast were hit harder earlier on and now it is really hitting the middle of the country. That was why I mentioned the time thing. Either way, it is pretty much bad news all around right now. San Diego is getting hit , although most of it seems to be in the southern end of the county. Again, just a matter of time before it moves more to the northern end of the county. Interesting enough, I recently read that some of the vaccine testing has begun in the south county of San Diego. Also, while it looks like the dai
  5. Then again, perhaps it is ones reference in time and not political.
  6. Thanks! Will check with Bonzi first as his seems to be about perfect for the car.
  7. And here is the inaugural drive into the cul-de-sac. Still a number of details to finish, but she's getting pretty close. 20201124_124417.mp4 20201124_124452.mp4
  8. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    Need the piece shown in the picture. It goes behind the seats. Black diamond vinyl preferred, but I can spray it if needed. Condition needs just to be OK, not prefect.

  10. I think San Diego has done fairly well based on it's population size, but looks like we are starting to get a significant rise in cases as well. Personally, the situation at work, though minor, has been my closest experience with Covid. Also, I can't say that anyone I know has been infected other than the one guy at work who I met just once. Cancer on the other hand has affected both friends and relatives in 2020. Either way, there is bad stuff going on out there, just trying to stay healthy here. Working on the cars is safe.
  11. Got the hood and valence installed. Also installed the radio and heater panel along with all of their respective connections. Now just a few interior items to finish up and she's just about done. The lead time on interior parts has been pretty bad due to Covid.
  12. The 2.4% for Wuhan/Covid is way off. Currently with 600K daily infections and 10K deaths, it is roughly 1 in 60, which would be 1/60 or 1.6%. However, the daily infections number is only those that are tested and confirmed. Those with virus that are either asymptomatic or not sick enough to go get tested would make that 1.6% much lower. I would bet that with 600k detections, there are another 400K or more that are probably not detected but walking the streets. A guy I worked on the line with 11 days ago recently tested positive. He did not feel any symptoms really at all, but had to
  13. So true, cancer survivors can certainly attest to that. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  14. Got both fenders in along with the lights. Will get hood and front valence next Saturday. Also got a stock radio from the owner and repaired the harness. Fortunately I had another radio to check for length verification and amazingly had a spare radio connector end in my box of Z stuff.
  15. ZCSD was invited to see the new Z prototype at the Nissan Design Center in San Diego so I took a few pics
  16. I got all the fluids replaced and brakes 'mostly' bled. I would take it for a spin in the cul-de-sac but it's raining out. Maybe it will clear up a bit later.
  17. Yes, those are the ones I use. I get a 30" black cable for '+' and 25" black cable for '-' and cut off the straight terminals. Got the cables from Pep Boys. I use 10Ga wire for the negative to firewall. Strip about 1.25" of insulation off the cable and insert into the right angle terminal end. I then screw a 1" long #10 flat head woodscrew to secure the wire in the new terminal. Then melt solder into end to seal and finish. I have found some rubber terminal covers but they are a bit too large. I think vintagerubber used to sell a set, but they were crazy expensive, over
  18. I would replace...they are cheap. Just a bit of work/contortion to get the pin out under the dash.
  19. I will try to get back to you on this later today. I typically use a small Kenwood speaker. They come 2 in a pack. The important item is that it is a 4 ohm speaker, similar to the original. I made some new battery cables with the right angle connectors. Also added the voltage regulator and fusible link. Put some gas in the tank and once the fuel got to the engine, she started right up, although very rough. Did a little trouble shooting and found that the rear carb float bowl was dry as a bone, so it was pretty much just running on 3 cylinders. Turns out the float bowl valve
  20. Continuing the interior work. Got the center console vinyl installed along with the dash. Have most of the electrical connections made. Also installed rear hatch weather stripping, luggage straps and speaker. Finishing up the battery cables. Should have her running this Saturday.
  21. Got the new seat upholstery installed. Also added the brake booster and master cylinder. Got the new exhaust system installed along with a few more hoses and interior parts. Also picked up the cowl and fuel door from Miguel. Fenders and hood will be ready in two weeks.
  22. That one looks nice, haven't seen that one before. Yes, interesting that it is also at 31K miles. The 222 car is the old Mike Sage car. It was one of the 1999 (VZ?) cars.
  23. Ahh, interesting. Maybe Mike was the seller in 2017. I think this would coincide with his purchase of 222.
  24. Pretty sure this is not Mike's car. I saw the owner, he was 'youngish', I would say mid 40's. Although, he probably knows Mike well since they are in the same region and the car was in Mike's museum. I am pretty sure that I know Mike's show cars. Mike has S/N HLS30-00222 which is far superior to this one.
