    Front fender advice

    Thanks. I just bought a passenger panel. I still might need a drivers panel.

    Front fender advice

    Thanks for the info. I am on a budget and would like a lot of other things done so, I think in my best interest would be to take my time and not get a new one so I returned it. I am taking my time on repairs and sometimes get carried away on purchases. I will probably just buy a lower patch panel from the zstore for around $50 for one side and I think I can fix other side with a piece of metal welded in. David did give me a great deal. I am very happy with the car and he was very friendly and helpful on this purchase. I think he let a little too much salt get to it but it is manageable. I will post some progress pics soon.

    Thats good to know. They are available by the way but I just cancelled an order for one. $417 shipped. I think I am going to keep my original and get the bottoms welded for now. Or like you said, find older good condition ones. Thanks, Joe

    $300 plus $200 shipping no thanks. If they shipped to local Nissan for free might be worth it. I guess nobody has any experience with aftermarket ones.

    Blue, Which Nissan sells them? I called locally and they cant get them. Just spoke with MSA they dont sell Nissan fenders and the one they did sell they were having design issues so they dont sell any at the moment.

    Front fender advice

    My front fenders are toast on the bottom mount points. Im trying to decide If I should get new aftermarket panels or just buy lower fender and repair the original. Does anyone have bad experience with newer aftermarket panels from like black dragon or whoever? I'm told they might not line up right and arent good quality. What is best option from your experience doing either or? Thanks, Joe
  8. Blue does it again! Its a pleasure having him around Z or not.

    What's next?

    Check the small banjo filters right at float bowl. They could be clogged up. #4 in first picture Dismantling - SU Carburetters
  10. Blue comes through again!!! He came over and tuned my car better than ever. I thought it was pretty good but, now shes tweaked to perfection thanks to Philip. His knowledge of these cars is amazing. I felt like I was in 240z training class. Thanks again for your time here. It was great meeting you and pleasure to hangout with you.
  11. Don't clean those nails yet Philip. We got more work for you down here in Boca. Tuning time!
  12. I want to thank Blue for the help today. He was very helpful. We didn't have any issues whatsoever thanks to him. We also took out the gas tank. It was a great day even though it rained like crazy with tornado warnings. Thanks for all the great tips posted here too.
  13. Thanks for all the hood tips! We are trying to setup a live cam but having trouble with port forwarding on this router maybe doing it wrong. Will post a link here If we can get it up today. check back later Im sure when Blue gets here today he can set it up for us. So far last night, just disconnected a few things like wires, fuel hoses,alternator, linkage and removed su's. Have rusted bolts sitting in evaporust. Today we will be draining tranny and engine oil, removing exhaust that is super rusted looking,removing radiator then possibly taking out engine if all goes well.
  14. Checklist Buying 3/4 ton load leveler. jacking up back end Will the acetone tranny fluid mix work better than deep creep seafoam? Pencil mark hood hinges, taking photos, ziplock baggies, painters tape, labatt blue how many? following what Jeff G and Zed Head said Blue to the rescue see you Sunday
  15. Thanks for all the great tips you guys. Starting to sound more difficult. I think the hoist is a fold up one, hopefully not. I hope Blue can come up that would be awesome! PM sent. I'm all ears for anymore advice :nervous:
