  1. Thank you for the input Grannyknot, and the compliment! I agonized about the color for months, if not years. Part of the reason for my ask was to find another supplier. The WHP quote was considerable but I'm sure the work is excellent. I have contact Chip and will be ordering the MFactory diff from him. Thanks again everyone! Jason
  2. Thanks. I found another gentleman online who made a wood tip-over jig. Based on his pictures I got out my tape measure and went to work. It worked out great. Another friend of mine in town now has it for his 240Z resto.
  3. Excellent! Thank you for that. I'll check it out.
  4. Hello Z Community, Long time listener, first time caller! I actually bought my 280Z from this forum in 2014. I've been slowly rebuilding it. LOTS of rust. Eiji built a stage 4 motor for me and I'm getting close to putting that back in after years of work. I have a stock R200, 3.54 open diff and it will mate with an 83' ZX NA trans. I've been looking for someone to rebuild the diff with 3.90 gears and an OS Giken LSD. Does anyone have experience with Whitehead Performance?

  5. Matt, you may have seen it already, but yesterday a 76' BRE tribute sold for $34k on BaT. http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1976-datsun-280z-2/

  7. Matt, Amazing. When do we get a video of you driving? I'm dying to hear your car run through the gears!
  8. Matt, Question for you if you don't mind. When you replaced the front section of your rocker panels how did you replace the mounting bolt for the front fender lower mount? I have a '78 and I think there's two bolts. Jason
  9. Matt, Quick question, what type of sheet metal are you using and where did you source it from? Thanks, Jason
  10. Hi HaZmatt, I've got a 78' 280Z that I've starting striping down to do what you've done. This thread is my guidebook on how to do it right. You've done an amazing job. Cheers, Jason
