  1. Oh Yeah! It was a June scorcher for sure. I had a female rider from Japan at the COTA event. No A/C in the car, she began to suffer heatstroke and we had to move her to a late model car with A/C.
  2. Memories of Memphis in July, 2015!!! 🥵
  3. I just spotted a date comment by Chris Karl on FB. The ZCON 2022 dates are July 25-30, Birmingham, Alabama. He noted that the website should go up this week. The judged car show will be an indoor event per pics he has posted.

Nissan used female and male bullet terminals on the negative/ground wires for different year model cars – not yet installed on these units. I will install either style terminal per buyer’s specifications. These are concours quality units, ready to install. $225 for the set of four lights, includes standard domestic shipping, international shipping available at actual cost. Payment via PayPal, PM if interested. Thanks!

  6. Charles, I've been using these folks for years with excellent results and I've referred a bunch of fellow Z owners to them with no complaints or problems. I'm fortunate that they are on;y a 15 minute drive from my home. As to the problem of lost bits, that will occasionally happen but I have pretty well remedied that by stringing small stuff - nuts, washers, springs, ...etc. onto wire loops that I tightly close. I do something similar with small screws by wrapping a thin wire several times arounf the threads and twsting it to lock it closed then daisy-chain more screws and finish by clos
  7. You will need 7mm X 1.0 and 10mm X 1.0. Sorry, I can't remember which size is which for the calipers and the drums. I bought these from Amazon: Russell 639560 and Russell 639570, both are produced by Edelbrock and worked out very well.
  8. As @zKars said, the aftermarket door trims are not curved. If you are not successful at warping them into shape and still have the OE pieces, consider transferring the new fuzzy strips to the OE trim. They can easily be attached with a series of pop rivets spaced about 3" apart. I went thru this entire process years ago, did not want to risk damage to new paint trying to force fit aftermarket trim.

  11. Welcome to the group and your introductory dash of irreverance from a fellow member. That's a great looking car, I know we'll all be looking forward to your updates with mandatory pics. Set up your signature line in your profile to include your VIN and build date as it will help everyone when responding to any questions you post. Did I mention mandatory pics???
  12. The link almost appears to be a placeholder for details to come, as there is no info and only one pic of the Proto nose. It announces the special edition car as a 2023 model, not the 2022 model we expect to arrive early next year - unless we think Nissan is going to declare all the Z35's as 2023 models. More for the grist mill!
  13. I had the car at an area car show yesterday and a couple of guys came up and started talking with me. They said they worked locally at a Nissan facility but were actually headquartered out of Franklin. During our discussion of the new Z35 they mentioned that the first 240 cars will have a special limited edition interior treatment. No details available. Grist for the rumor mill!
  14. You are correct. In my haste I misread the specs as a 6mm head but it is indeed a M6 screw dia. Thanks for catching my mistake.
  15. Hi Jerry, I did a quick check on my car - the tiny bolts are a 7mm hex head with a phillips slot. Checking with Belmetric, it looks like they are called SEMS Hex Phillips altho these have a flat washer installed. They carry it in a 6mm head but not 7mm. https://www.belmetric.com/sems-hex-phillips-c-10_2345/?zenid=2tdb29vtv11hqsruk3uf0dsk12 Interesting that Nissan used a odd number mm head when everything else is even number.
