  1. thanks guys for your thoughts - I will post some pics for Travel'n Man to have a look at soon (I think old pic have were posted some time ago) Unkle.........you may have some wise advise and I will take the Christmas down time to decide what to do. regards to all and enjoy the holiday - Davis when it come to cars - there's not much better to look at than a Z
  2. this may be the thing to spark my interest in my 72 again - sorry I didnt read all the posts so I just read the first few and skipped to the last page Do I understand you will plan again event or fo next year? - I worked in Houston and Dallas for 2 years and loved that time - both my wife and I would love to get back for an extended road trip there regards Davis - Ontario Canada
  3. so now after 3 years of time, effort and money restoring my 72 Zrestored I'm losing enthusiasm - sort of like I did what I wanted to do and theres nothing left to light a spark. - anyway she looks great, runs like a gem and gets tons looks etc - all thats good but not sure I want to start all over again. SO now what?

    Goodbye sunroof!

    wow - I have same sunroof as you did - I must have only one that doesnt leak! (yet?) Davis
  5. Escanlon pretty much tells it all - I had pretty much the same case here is what I did - remove seats and console0 - remove all the tarmat - remove all the rust and patched some bad areas with metal - paint entire floor seat rails etc with POR 15 - cover entire floor (glued) 1/8" vinyl floor deadener material (or use fatmat) - installed new GM sound insulation (came from cube van) - installed new carpeting I also painted the interior plastic diamond vinyl with SEMS colorcoat satin black before putting everything back together much quieter now and looks like NEW!!
  6. I read some other posts and did a search on Corsa electric power steering and found this unit at www.bba-reman.com - maybe it could be adapted reading futher on Corsa electric steering sites, it sound like there are lots of problems with these units. I have seen the EPS unit on the JDM site (jdm-car-parts.com) looks like they want about $700 plus shipping etc. kind of an expensive propositon considering nobody seems to have tried one, at least I cant find anyone who has. thinking about going back to 14" wheels to lighten my steering up regards
  7. E - do you still want me to send that antenna switch? - if so pm me your zip code then - not sure about duty on used car parts but I at least get a cost on shipping UPS Dave
  8. It would be metric - I will see what I can do tonite - am I correct thinking that it would be the size of a metric socket head that it would fit into? my GUESS is its a 10mm Dave
  9. I have one from a 72 that I could send you if you cant find one Davis
  10. I thought I would post what I went through to replace the heater control panel on my 72 with a new 73 panel. I am sure others have done. - the 73 panel will fit into the dash opening of the 72 but the 72 parts will not fit onto it - you will need a 73 lever slide bracket - it was too wide to fit into the dash and had to be cut back at one side by my local machinist. - you will need a 73 cowl that goes behind the rotary vent - its slightly different than the 72 - I removed the cables from the 72 bracket and installed them on the the 73 slide bracket. - you will need a 73 fan switch since the 72 is too short to fit through the slide bracket and reach the front of the panel. I reused the 72 knob since the 73 was a little different. - the 73 has backlights behind the panel that i didnt install since the 72 had none. - I havent hooked the cables up yet at other end but it looks like they will fit be careful and the new panel will scratch easily - do all work on top of a soft towel
  11. Hi Dan you are correct - its the one one left (the right being the 72 switch) how much do want for it - I live in Waterloo ON regards Dave
  12. I thought I had everything I need to convert my 72 heater panel to a new 73 but apparently not. Since the cable bracket is different the 72 fan switch wont fit - i.e the stem on the switch is TOO SHORT to reach to the front of the panel and attach the knob. Anyone have a 73 fan switch hey can sell me? - if possible I would like the knob too. Hoping that the electrical connector is the same on the 73 as the 72. TOTALLY FRUSTRATED!! Dave
