  1. Have a look at this thread. Both my 12/70 and 6/71 cars had this tough, black coating applied to the bare metal before the bodies were sprayed with color. Additionally, if you look very close at the pic showing the transmission tunnel in that thread, you will see a reddish over spray that came through the shifter opening onto the black coating. That overspray... is the first coat of primer that was applied at the factory. You can see it here on the fender I stripped back to bare metal: Over this red "oxide" primer, which was sprayed over the entire top

Prefer DOT code of (check DOT code on tire) "221", "231", "241" or "251", but let me know what yours is original carpet padding "jute" (brown horse hair like stuff). This "jute" was originally installed under the front floor carpet mats, under the seats, under the center tunnel diamond textured vinyl trim, and under the carpet in the rear hatch deck/floor. This stuff is fragile, and it would be nice, if you have any that is in good condition, to take some care with removal (it was glued to the tunnel) and care with packaging for shipment. Removal with diamond patterned vinyl trim/cover still attached (glued) to the top side of the jute would be preferred. 4 original hubcaps for a 6/1971 240z battery cover (plastic) related parts for 1971 240z yellow wheel chocks with correct date stamps - 1E or 1F original scissor jack. There are letters stamped into the base of the jack. I need one that has letters starting with Q (1971), and then be followed by F (June) as the second letter, then followed by any letter S through Z as the third letter ---- or, if there are four letters... then AA through CC as the third and fourth letters.

  4. Thanks for the measurements. The boots I have a bit small. They are not as wide at the fat part of the bellows and they are only 1.6 inches long from end to end. I put one on the cable and the id on each end is a good fit. I think it is 1 mm id on one end and it is 6 mm id on the other. Maybe the info here will help someone else, as my carbs don't utilize the later style cables with boots.
  5. Interesting. I may not need these after all. I am looking at the fitment information. How can I tell when the later type was utilized? Assembly is #20 in the image:
  6. Nice - thanks for grabbing those and a pic. So, are you able to provide any details about the collars? Looking at the pic, it seems there were differences in how tall the collars/bands were. How thick is the metal they are made from? Is there just one dimple on the circumference, or more than one? Are they 6 sided? They don't look round... which I find odd. For the bellows, can you measure the rough overall length? How wide are they at the fat part of the bellow, and at the thin part? I have cables and can measure the outer diameter (OD) of the cable housing. I just haven't done so y
  7. Did you see the link to their facebook page? Send an email to them first to inquire on pricing and availability: southernshinemedia1@gmail.com They accept PayPal.
  8. I came across them after doing searches for rubber bellows. It seems remote control boats use them. Search "rubber bellows boat model" on ebay. I had to buy a pack of 10, but they are cheap.
  9. Interesting... That is a running production change to improve a problem, in my opinion. 240Z rear hatches do not have that bracket, nor any support in that area. So, the entire outer panel moves inward when you press on the lock button if you are not careful. I will be making a support for my hatch to eliminate that issue. It seems that Nissan did the same thing on the later Z.
  10. Hi Wally, Color and type of finish depends on the year. My two 240z's had a black coating applied at the factory What model and year are you working with?
  11. A part that is almost always long gone on our 240z's, I am hoping to find a nearly identical to factory replacement "rubber bellows" for the choke cables for the car I am restoring. Somewhere in my thousands of hours of web-surfing, I found this picture of some of the originals: Does anyone have any originals that they could pull some measurements off of? I am looking for dimensional details of both the boots and the collars/clamps that secure the boot to the cable and sheath. I would like to fabricate the collars... but I need more info. Here are some boots I am hopi
  12. It has evolved some, and now it consists of: Using these glass beads from Northern Tool and Equipment, important for size of grain, and bead blasting at 90 psi with a 1/8th inch nozzle to remove all rust, and to establish a consistent finish. I use one of these baskets and find that putting a variety of hardware (big and small) is great for trapping the parts in place so I can blast them without them flying around too much. For large parts, you don't need to use the basket, and you can then go back over them with the pressure at 50 psi to put a smoother, easier to "second stage prep"
  13. Prepping hardware... Will it ever end??????????? 🙂 Only a vague idea if this is good enough. Perhaps, some of it is overkill. Thanks for the guidance about prep level on the hardware. I have probably been going overkill on some. I hope I can finally send everything off in a couple of weeks. A lot of the larger stuff (wiper linkage, hard lines, etc.) is not shown here:
  14. So, two separate requests - for a bell housing to mod for the SX trans swap, and I need a replacement "reverse check sleeve" for a spare 280ZX trans I have. I only included a pic of the reverse check sleeve. I have a spare 4 speed bell housing, but I would prefer a 5 speed one so I don't have to drill a hole for the reverse switch in a thin area of the casting. Hmmm, I guess I could add an aluminum boss to that area of the casting...
  15. I found the time to pull the lines out of the box of hardware. Here's what I have: The line which is attached to the compensator is the NOS (new old stock) one. It is series 1, or per the parts manual up to 9/1971. The line just to the left is one of two that came with the car. Other than the bend towards the top, it looks like the same part as my NOS one. The line at the right in the pic is the other one that came with the car. It looks very similar to the correct series 1 line for the front circuit, but it won't line up with the correct master cylinder as is. It woul
