  1. Ok...my ignition was probably replaced at some point. It's on a different key than the door and hatch locks. I haven't tried the glove compartment and body side pocket lock, but I'm guessing I won't be able to lock them, since they're on the master key. Oh well, that's not too big of a deal I guess. Thanks!
  2. I've got another quick question. It doesn't seem like anyone sells a full cover with the hole for the temperature sensor. My cracks stop at the top of the gauges, so I could do just the cap. I would think the full cover would look a lot better though. Anyone know where to get a full cover with the sensor hole? If not, any opinions on the cap vs the full? I just got my heater and vents working, but I'm still working on the A/C. I'm not sure if it's going to matter if I have a temperature sensor or not! Here's a link to the ones I'm looking at... http://www.blackdragonauto.com/features/z/ZDBC.h
  3. It looks like I have one key with right groove and one with left grooves. Is that normal?
  4. This sounds like the perfect solution for me. Thanks y'all!
  5. My factory radio seems pretty sketchy. For instance, last night the display went out for a while. I have a brand new metal faceplate for an aftermarket radio. Is that the best way to go or should I go with one of the plastic install kits? Also, the previous owner removed the antenna for some reason. Apparently, they missed some rust and there's a bubble under the paint in that location. Should I attempt to install a new antenna when I get that spot repainted?
  6. Has anyone installed a full dash cover? Do you have to remove the dash as pictured or can you do it in place? How about just the cap? Thanks!
  7. They're not that bad. I just want to get it taken care of before it becomes a real problem. Yep...seller. I'm not out to restore the car. I just want to enjoy driving it. They did have someone restoring a Z come look at it for parts. They said if they got it they planned to use their current one for parts for this one. I don't really expect to have any problems getting the A/C going.
  8. I just bought an 83 280ZX. After I test drove it, I noticed that the upper piece of chrome was about a half inch off the windshield and it was pulling out on one side. Is it supposed to be attached with some kind of sealant/adhesive? If I bring it to a windshield repair shop, will they likely know how to reinstall it properly? Thanks!
  9. I previously owned a 75 280Z and I just purchased this 83 280ZX. The previous owner put a lot of work into it, but there's still lots to do. I had a mechanic check it out and he was pretty much amazed in the condition. I'm going to bring it in next week for the brake repair. I also plan to get the floorboards cut out and replaced in the near future. After that, it will just be a little bit here and there. I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions in the future! Thanks!
