    Re keying door locks

    I was going through the locks today and realized that the ignition key locks the hatch but doesn't fit the two door locks, is there a way change or replace the tumblers so as to have one key for everything? Thanks

    Looking for 240, 260, or 280zs in the $500-$2000 range.

    Yes but so does everyone else and a lot of those guys have more money than you and me 280 s are great cars, are superior to the 240s in many ways and the prices are still reasonable.

    Am I missing anything?

    Soak them in some thinners and wash the hard grease out of them, repack with fresh grease and they will be good for another 50 yrs. Well just keep all of the original stuff so you can take it back to original if you change your mind.

    Besides, that grey will look great with the green body colour.

    Well that depends what kind of driving you are going to do, if it is a weekend car 1-2 track days a year then you can get away with just some bump stops (NOT hard poly, you need the stiff poly foam) and good tires. If you think you will be doing lots of track then you might want to get camber plates, caster adjustment and the rest that stuff. Just my opinion. Urethane bushings are great for track work but can be punishing for a street car.

    NOS 240z dash

    So even though it has been sitting in a box all this time presumably with no direct sun light there is a crack. It could have been dropped I guess but I would be fearful the vinyl is pretty brittle just from age. Vintage Dashes is going to be working solid for the next 20 yrs.

    You probably should head over to Hybridz, https://forums.hybridz.org/ That is a fairly popular engine swap and there are a number of guys there that have done it. Don't want to chase you away but Hybridz is all about engine swaps.

    But that's the point, why sell a man one helmet when you can sell him two.

    Looks like Lincoln wants you to replace the ADF cartridge.
  11. Anyone want to take a guess at what those same three Zs' would have gone for on BaT or ebay? They might have reached the same numbers but I have a feeling that the excitement of a live in person auction and the Barrett Jackson name probably helped boost them up some what.

    Where to go with this rusthole

    Futofab has a nice set, the rear swaybar is rear mounted behind the Diff. https://www.futofab.com/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=category&amp;layout=blog&amp;id=28&amp;Itemid=86

    Front strut cartridge removal

    Mark, was this it? I posted this about 5 yrs ago
  14. I should ship my ///MZ down there and put it up on the block, might end up with enough to build two Zs
  15. Yeah, that was interesting, but that car wasn't just another run of the mill LS engine swap, someone built that car as a custom, it looked well planned. Nice to see that recognition.
