    NOS 240z dash

    Thanks. I put a lot of bubble wrap in to protect it and hope the new owner receives it in same condition and is really pleased with it over the years.

    Update pics of the fender after sandblasting the lower corner. One or two pin holes and some pitting, but otherwise this is very nice. A fender like this saves you lots of time on body work prep instead of one you have to section in new metal, metal work, etc. --> $250 plus shipping Just as fyi - the problem of rusting through in this area on our Z fenders can be eliminated by altering the back support a bit. Cutting out some of the back support to allow debris and water to drain/fall down, instead of getting trapped and accumulating here is possible without materially altering the strength of the panel. Cut the support for better drainage, sand blast pitted area, epoxy prime or other treatment to seal and you're done.

    NOS 240z dash

    Saw this new dash show up on ebay recently as well. Amazing - there are more of these out there.

    NOS 240z dash

    Yes, a real shame. But, vinyl is very repairable. Once mounted, with a high quality repair performed, this dash will look the 100% new OEM dash it is, for years to come. I sourced another OEM dash off of ebay back around 2004. It is in my series 1 Z in (pic in avatar) and it hasn't cracked in the 15(?) years I've had it. Even high quality replacements like those from Vintage Dashes do not replicate the OEM one 100%. So, I am thinking the final sale price will be higher than the $800-$900 range. We'll see I guess.

    NOS 240z dash

    Hi, That's my dash in the auction. In the box without padding is how I got it, but I will be packing it far better, better supported to keep it from flexing and with plenty of soft packing to keep it from moving around in the box. I got it about 6 months ago... and didn't realize it had a crack until I took it out of the box to take pictures for the auction. Hard to say what caused it, but I think it happened because in storage there was pressure pushing the center console opening wider at the bottom... Anyway, I am doing a restoration and will be going with a Vintage Dashes one - a series 1 style to match the one in my car. If they weren't available, I would use this one instead. Garrett

    Bump - and status update: Sold one hatch and I am holding onto the other one for now (I may need it after all). One hood still available $300 (other one is probably sold - I just need to provide a shipping quote and receive payment) Headlight housings (metal) are reduced to $80 each. Fender still available $250. Next time I sandblast some parts (in the next week or so) I will sandblast the lower corner and post pics. I have had good luck shipping large items via Greyhound - much cheaper than FedEx or UPS for large items.

    Looking for new or very nice 240Z winshield

    There is no indication of the manufacturer, or a "dot" lable or anything like that in any of the corners? Without it being clean so it can be examined for pitting, windshield wiper marks, etc, I've got to pass. Thanks for your efforts though.

    Looking for new or very nice 240Z winshield

    Both new or near new condition and source (etching) are important for the windshield I source for the car I am currently restoring, as it is going to be "frame off" (never have liked using that term)... "every square millimeter being redone" - restoration. However, with windshields being very rare at the moment, that makes the value of yours go up, doesn't it?!

    Wonder if Pilkington windshield came from Summit or something else - they never posted...

    Looking for new or very nice 240Z winshield

    I called them some time ago and asked about it. The guy said the ones they had have a dark band of tint across the top - not what was pictured. I called them just now and the guy said they are completely tinted all the way through - same shade - of "blue". Aren't the factory ones green? He also said they are made in the UK, they have none in stock and no eta. He hinted as some issues with the agreement with the supplier needing to be resolved. He also guessed at the name of the manufacturer and I deduced that it is Pilkington.
  11. I need a high quality one that looks like factory - not the ones available with the band of dark tint across the top. This is for a near stock restoration. Will spend for the right one in great condition. Thanks. Garrett
  12. Hi, I have a NOS dashboard. I got it with a project car off of Bring A Trailer. Willing to part with it for enough money, but for not enough, I'll need to use it for the project car. Le me know what you'd like spend. Garrett
  13. Hey, 

    You still around?  Like your wheels and I am thinking of buying a set.  But 205 tire is quite the stretch for 8" wide wheels, isn't it?  Ever have any issues?

    I have quoted FedEX for a couple of people and it has been expensive. I've heard that shipping by passenger bus (they will put big packages in the storage compartment below) is much more economical. But, I think you are still looking at numbers like $80 for a hatch, maybe less for a fender, probably more for a hood. Charlotte, NC 28208 is 250 miles from me. It makes more sense from a shipping standpoint to get a pallet and ship all the items at once "LTL" (less than truckload) truck freight. Freight shipping would probably be less than $200 for a hood, hatch, fender, and both headlight housings. I am holding onto the hatch with the vertical defrost lines for now, as I may need it for my current project. Just thinking outside the box, I have a sandblaster and potentially could sandblast small areas of interest...

    Updating with some pics of the hoods - this is hood #1 from desert climate - not even surface rust inside the front structure. The mounting holes have been slotted by someone which I didn't notice until taking pics. I have come across that before on another hood - it's an easy fix (mig weld and file) - $300 Hood number #2 - acquired in Virginia in the early 90's from a 1972 240z and stored inside since ($300):
