  1. The P/S front fender has been resprayed for sure, not a very good match but nice clean Z. Watching the walk around video you can just feel that warm California breeze, I'm looking a foot of snow out my window.
  2. This a problem many of us have had to deal with, the hinges get a bit worn and sloppy over the years, if you loosen the screws holding the hinges to the inner fender, push straight down on both sides of the front of the hood and tighten the screws while still applying that downward pressure. That usually fixes the problem but sometimes the slots on the hinges have to be notched out to lower the hinge a bit more.
  3. I needed a change of scenery so started on the other side for some variety, still lots to do on the roof but you have to take your victories where you can.
  4. Your Grandad had eclectic taste, maybe don't be too quick to clean them up, as we've seen at some auctions houses that that layer of dirt and leaves fetches a premium sometimes.
  5. But that negative feedback was about a set of those SU's, "Leaky and bad carbs, severe lack of communication, didn’t want to give refund" You'll be very happy with ZTherapy's work, I've sent them 2 sets and both came back perfect.
  6. On that car I ended with some generic bullet mirrors which did the job.
  7. Post on both, there certainly is some cross over between the two forums but also a large number of guys who only frequent one or the other. There is also some great advice to be had over at https://www.autobody101.com/forums/index.php?sid=f044bf1f351a02abe241234902095df9
  8. Very nice shape. Choke cables coming from the passenger side? 1973_datsun_240z_16119573683b6c6730240Z-Datsun-1973-Silver-132.webp
  9. I bought a set many years ago and never did get around to mounting them, I still have them in their original packaging. They are a good solid mirror but you do have to drill 3 small holes in the window frame to attach them properly. If you're interested, PM me, I'll make you a good deal.
  10. Here's an old thread from Ratsun with some good pics of Datsun colours, https://ratsun.net/topic/38158-datsun-paint-and-codes/ Whether or not respraying your car in the original colour will add to its value is debatable, you have a sunroof so your car will never be original again without major work so the shade of paint IMHO is your call, I say paint it the colour you like. This car is reported to be #307,
  11. I used an aquarium heater but have a look at @Patcon plating thread, he produced outstanding results with his setup.
  12. Nice set up, what power supply are you using?
  13. ? are you referring to the hollow fan blades on the Pratt&Whitney engines on the Boeing 777 ?
  14. I'm in undercoat scraping purgatory at the moment and probably for the next week.
