  1. Have thought about that solution and guess that is the only option I have. According to the FSM, shims can be placed between the body and the hinge to align the hatch but it does not mention any other way of adjusting the hatch..😕 Not many Harbor freight in Norway so guess I will have to make my own..
  2. I'm trying to align the rear hatch after paint but it seems to be sitting too far in the aft direction. I'm using the tailgate hinge seal cover from Motorsport auto ( http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic02o03b03/34-2236) and with that installed it is impossibe to get it to sit correct. Anyone else had this issue? Tried to remove the cover and then it sits better, of course....
  3. Check out handsontools.com
  4. @theguppies, is the 280z dash still on track for delivery mid this year? Not earlier?
  5. I still struggle with the color. The paint shop claimed that in order to be able to color match it the panel needed to be steel Could be that I need to check with another paint shop but so far no luck in finding the paint code.
  6. Ok, thanks for the info. I'll try my local paint guy then
  7. Does anyone know the paint color code for the dark brown interior in a 77 280Z? I've done some repairs to some of the trim panels and would like to paint them.
  8. Ok, so it looks right but still it looks unfinished.... So that's how they did it back in the day😁
  9. I've replaced the weatherstripping for the quarter window but to me it looks like there is something missing between the interior trim and the frame of the window. It's a few years since I removed the windows so dont remember how it should be😕
  10. Thanks for pictures and replies. The warmer plate looks familiar, believe it has been laying around on my workbench for months When it is removed, how much longer is the fast idle running? Does anyone have the dimensions for the plugs needed to remove this? I would like to keep the heater so just want to get rid of the t-joint where the lower radiator hose connects.
  11. I stripped my car down three years ago and I have finally started to put it together I removed the EGR from the intake manifold and possibly some other things I cant remember and now I have two hoses I don't figure out where to connect. I've tried to look at pictures of different engine bays but i can't figure out exactly where they should go, and there is no obvious connection point for either one so thinking that I, in a weak moment, have removed something more without putting it back.... The hose connected to the hard line running to the other side of the engine, where should it go? Since the rubber hose is rather short there is not a lot of options... And the longer hose running from the thermostat housing From what I have read it seems like the hoses are for heating of the throttle chamber/intake manifold and that they might be blocked off if the car is not running in cold environment. Since I live in Norway it could be sub zero temperatures even though it wont be driven during winter so would like to have them...
  12. Thanks for the info. I will see if I can find something similar in Norway.
  13. Bringing this old thread back to life... EuroDat, did you find the correct cable ties for the engine harness? Need to replace all the cable ties in the engine bay after a respray.

    Seal for windows?

    Thank you guys. I got a qoute from Datsunpartsllc for the door window outerseal with molding, 150$ each side! Have anyone tried this one? Is it the same as the one Black dragon sells for 50$, or is it a different brand?
  15. I've been trying to find out what the seal/rubber for the window in the picture is called, maybe it is a part of the regular weatherstrip kit but what is it called? Can someone help me with the correct name for this seal? Also need the same seal for the quarter windows.
