  1. Don, how did mate the Zstory system to your stock manifold? I have about half the Zstory system installed on my car and am waiting for Sean to make available the downpipe for the stock manifold to finish the system. About 6 months since install, still looks and sounds great, no drone.
  2. For #1 ... the driveshaft length with yours should be fine. For #2 ... in the spirit of "light restoration" examine the u joints for play carefully, replace if any is detected, not costly and easy to do yourself. If you put in greaseable joints, be sure to orient the joint so that when the half shaft rotates to give you access the the zerk fitting, it is accessible.
  3. https://www.automotivetouchup.com/touch-up-paint/datsun/1978/all-models/ I used this for the engine bay frame rails & firewall area in the same blue metallic for a friends 280 that went to Zcon last year. Matched up well. Car is a stock survivor with 50k original miles.
  4. My RB's are 16x7 with Dunlop ultra high performance 205 55 16's Perfect fitment, no spacers, close to stock original wheel diameter for speedo accuracy. The McGard's won't rust, have a lifetime warranty, and the current amazon price is a extremely good deal. I never use impact tools on the lugs & never will. Just torque them to about 85ft lbs.
  5. FWIW I have a set of Rota RB's on my 77, with a set of McGard lug nuts. One is locking on each wheel. Very high quality. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006HOVJI?pf_rd_p=ab873d20-a0ca-439b-ac45-cd78f07a84d8&pf_rd_r=9R1Q7RP1KCPKPJHGNDT4
  6. Thank you, will forward your number to Joyce, the owner of the 75 280z. I gave her your email address, she may have already contacted you thru that.
  7. Myself & the owner of the target 280 are not fans of facebook. They must have a phone number because I believe, Dave and others on this thread have talked to them in the past about shipping updates. They really need a website.
  8. Does anyone have the contact phone number for Vintage Dash? Could not find it online. Need to source one for a friend with a 75 280z.
  9. He looks good standing beside his handiwork.
  10. I think you will find that 205's are the limit in any aspect ratio for the stock wheels. A regular shop will not mount any tire wider. Your options with the oem rims are limited.
  11. Plan on replacing the backup light switch, they are not too expensive and tend to leak internally. Spindle pins are like the lottery, you will just have to cross that bridge when you get to it .... My experience, usually one will put up a fight. You can always take them to a shop with a big press for removal.
  12. Here are some (probably has 20 of them) from the z man of washington .... Shipping could be interesting. https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/pts/d/snohomish-auto-trans-datsun-cars/7031022697.html
  13. Many have used this to improve shift feel & performance with excellent results, especially when cold. Highly recommended ....
  14. Additional information & pictures are needed for anyone to speculate on its value. A running driving car is usually valued higher. 1009 ZX R's were produced to homologate the rear spoiler for competition. It is a standard zx with special striping & the spoiler added.
