  1. His seems to be an MSA air damn, similar to what the OP here is doing?
  2. Yeah, any other pics you have would be useful for myself and others planning this swap. Exactly what pieces are it that get in the way? Are any of them removable? I assume someone must have completed this full 240z > 280z front end swap in the past. Where are his pics and thread?
  3. Any luck finding those pics, 8 years later? I'd love to see them!
  4. > The height difference was more than I expected. The 240Z is so much higher that the centre section between the valences can not be fitted because the chassis drops down to low. I too am/was planning to use the 3-piece 240z stock valence + turn signals on my 280z. I'm currently in the process of paint stripping my 240z piece. Have not yet tried a test fit. Do the corner pieces fit correctly on the 280z chassis? I knew there would be a height issue in the middle. I was planning on some kind of butchering of the middle valence piece to fit around obstructions, then hiding it with a 2
  5. Hoping someone can help me with an electrical issue I'm having in my '77 280z. This is a car that I've had for a while and has never been a daily driver under my ownership, and likely for some time before. It was a barn find I was going to use for the really nice black interior, but I ended up not needing it. It presents nicely, so now I'm planning on selling it after getting it running. I used to start it every month or two and drive it around a bit. A year or two ago I accidentally used the wrong key in the ignition. The key became stuck, I couldn't deal with it at the time, and it sat f
  6. The entire EditGrid site seems to have closed up shop. Does anyone have an archived spreadsheet? This is a big loss, if no copy exists. EDIT: Here is a copy from November 2013: https://web.archive.org/web/20131128034951/http://www.editgrid.com/user/mlwilliams/Z_Car_Registry
  7. Just back from the shop. - Fuel filler area rust repaired. - Rear 280z bumper filler valence rust repaired. - Left hatch area rust reapaired. - Dents on rear passenger side straightened. - Rear Sidemarker lights deleted!
  8. Yeah the rear quarter panel will definitely need to be repaired. I'm assuming you removed the "filler pocket" entirely during the repair? We'll see if I can save it, the bottom edge is pretty rusty. I'd love to simply shave the fuel filler door, as I will do with my sidemarkers. But I don't want gas smell in the hatch, etc., or a complicated filling situation. So I guess the door will stay... Has anyone seen any "flush mounted" fuel door alternatives? Not looking for anything modern and obvious looking.
  9. I'll show you what I'm dealing with on my 280z, and perhaps get some advice! What is the "interior of the fuel door" called? The metal where the fuel filler neck is mounted. Is a replacement part for this made? I believe this is a pretty common rust area, due to spilled gas? Has anyone done this repair before? Any good guides? I'm in Seattle, if anyone has a recommendation for a good shop.
  10. Stored a ferry ride away from me for too long, but I took her out when I could. I'll post pictures as I find them. Golden Gardens 2012
  11. Project thread for the 2050-Z: I bought this 280z in Summer 2011. The original ad on Craigslist: 1977 Datsun 280Z - (Bellingham) Date: 2011-07-24, 11:03AM PDT http://bellingham.cr...2510772069.html Well I never thought I would get rid of her but she needs someone thats going to drive her more often. This car is an absolute blast to drive. It handles great, runs strong and smooth. Great to take out on Chuckanut or go cruise in the county. Couple of notes: - I have the original factory manual. - I have the original factory wheel blocks. - I think the spare tire is original. - I have a spa
