  1. 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.

  4. 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???
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  9. Nothing as exotic as most of the entries in this thread but here is a little paint accessory I made this week to help in refinishing my steering wheel. It is the top of a 2 liter bottle with a nice fat bolt installed in the cap. It served as a stand for painting the spokes and hub and then it provided a spinner base to rotate the wheel evenly while spraying the spar urethane.
  10. Very nice work, the different treatment on the spokes looks great! What stain did you choose for the rim?
  11. Just as a point of clarification, I am looking at a switch from a '78 right now and the wire colors are different from the FSM diagram. The wires to the beam switch are red/white and red/yellow with black as the ground. If you have not done so already, a continuity test will help diagnose the problem. Touch your ohm meter probes to the black and red/white to check for contact. If none, repeat with the black and red/yellow. One pair or the other should respond. Pull the switch handle one time to change the beam switch and repeat the ohm test on the pair that did not respond the first time. If
  12. Thanks for the information. It looks like I need to market this little gem in Europe and down under. 😉
  13. Thanks for the link. I got a chuckle from the Nissan text at the bottom - a choke knob for a FI car???: Fits 260Z, 280Z This product fits 5 vehicle variants. Datsun: 2 models, 5 variants between 1974 and 1978.
  14. This NOS choke knob was in a group of parts I picked up a while back, it's not listed in the online catalog for Z's (the 260Z has a number close to this). Any help on identifying what model car it is for? Thanks!
  15. Wally, This recent thread should cover all of your questions:
