  1. That is interesting Alan, I truly thought that he made them based upon all discussions and information I had. Thank you for the info.
  2. He has been VERY busy as we come out of the pandemic. He's been backed up on orders and working hard to get them built and shipped. We did a group buy last year, summer or fall (I do not remember) and it recently arrived in town just a few weeks ago. That delay was caused by MANY factors such as supply chain delays, illness, other orders in front of ours, shipping delays, and so on. Be patient with him, he will get you taken care of. And remember that he is likely out building systems rather than sitting at his computer answering emails and texts...and I'll bet he's been getting a lot of them from people wondering where their parts are. He's a stand up guy. 🙂 Hope that info helps a little bit.
  3. I absolutely 1000% agree with @26th-Z!!! Do NOT do that, you will not like the results.
  4. They have much more, some of which may still not show on their website. One I saw pix of recently is the part of the firewall where the brake booster, clutch master cylinder, and steering column all come through...beautiful piece!
  5. Exactly what they are, it's in the description though not quite as clear ("and a front tow bar").
  6. Use the Z engine calculator to compute your compression ratio if you really want to know it.
  7. Please post pix and build date as S30Driver also requested.
  8. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is by far the best Z group on the internet!!
  9. Been a few years for me too...
  10. JB Weld also makes a putty that may work for this situation.
  11. Welcome to the group @Gorp. I'm in the Austin area also. There's a local club you may want to check out if you have not already, Capitol Z of Texas.
  12. Very nice write up @xs10shl. I'll attempt to remember where I saw this post when I get to this point on my Z.
  13. My issue with electrical tape is the same as what @pogden mentioned, over time it becomes a sticky mess. Use the non-adhesive stuff.
  14. @S30Driver, sent you a PM.
  15. Anyone have experience or opinions on this set? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DPSDQMD?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details I just bought these about a week ago.
  16. That's very interesting, thank you for the pix!!!
  17. Many items are made to order so just reach out and make your request/purchase.
  18. Have you also got pix of those areas?
  19. Here's his website (took me a minute to find it): https://www.datsun-240z-upgrades.net/
  20. I believe Dave Irwin is your guy! He has put together relay kits that help with the high voltage on things like the headlight switch (which is one of the worst). Here's some information: http://www.zhome.com/DaveRelay/DavesHeadlightRelay.htm And a Google search for him will yield more info. The best thing about his kits is that they do not require hacking up your stock wiring harness! 😄
  21. You could also toss it in a hydroblasting cabinet and clean it up that way. There's a guy in this area who has done that with good results (they really do look nice when he's done). He's just using a homemade hydroblasting cabinet, there are plenty of guides on the internet to build one.
  22. If it works like other auctions I've seen my understanding is that RW1968 placed a bid of $100,000 (or something close since I do not know the bid increments for this site) at some point before 01/20/2022 @ 6pm. Then someone came along and placed a bid of $65,000 on 01/20/2022 @ 6pm and was immediately outbid by RW1968 since his bid was higher, this happened again and again until RolenMiller came along and placed a bid on 01/23/2022 @ 9:33am that was finally more than RW1968's maximum bid thus now being the high bidder.
  23. Here are a few places that popped up with a Google search. https://www.zeddsaver.com/collections/datsun-z-car-id-plates http://www.zzxdatsun.com/catDecals.php https://www.datsunpartz.com/search/vin-plate?cookies_currency=USD&currency=USD&dss=true&price_max=3000&price_min=&search=vin+plate&sort=name https://www.datsunspares.com/en/spare-parts/itemlist/category/3-datsun-body-plates
  24. That is for a series 1 car and he has a 1972 (series 2). @jackmau, if you cannot find someone making this perhaps a piece of rubber or weather striping will do the trick.
