  1. z8987, if you're going to buy a pair of blue plates for your car, here's one: It's hard to find someone in the US to make steel plates (vs aluminum) anymore. I had a guy in Germany make me a set of steel ones a couple years ago. DMV is use to seeing restored old plates now a days. You'll have to call the DMV to make sure it's "clear" to use, since it is a legit plate that was probably used back in the day, and you can't order personalized plates of a valid pattern used in the past. Just throwing a risky idea out there! 😉
  2. They extended YOM program to 1980 and older cars, but it’s odd the DMV website doesn’t mention that except on the application form. I’ll do some more homework. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/file/year-of-manufacturer-yom-license-plate-application-reg-352-pdf/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/handbook/vehicle-industry-registration-procedures-manual-2/special-plates/year-of-manufacture-yom-license-plates/ You’ll need to hunt around or buy a pair of blue plates, and an old 1970 year sticker. Got my sticker off eBay, plates can be found other places, and may be priced at $200-300 depending on condition. For a 70 I’d try to get a pair that start with a lower number since that was to first year for blue plates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Took a short drive out to 8789’s house today to check out his new acquisition since we live in the same town. Awesome looking car! He forgot a pic of the original antenna. [emoji106]

  8. Finally got the seats done and reinstalled. I did the passenger side seat, but had a pro do the driver seat since it was more worn and needed some foam work. Waiting for the side mechanism covers to come in. Going to try to sell the old seat covers that go over the top of your worn out seats. They actually don't look too bad if wanting a quick temporary fix until you can do it right. Not sure where they came from, but definitely different than what I see available now. If anyone here wants them, just pay shipping and they're yours. Also going to sell the seat covers and foam I purchased from Innovative Interiors (paid $680) that I didn't use. I'll probably try Craigslist first due to shipping costs, then eBay if needed. Going to loose my shirt on these.
  9. Does anyone know where I can find the plastic knob on the seat back release lever? Or a whole drivers side lever? Thanks, Ken
  10. Finally received the seat cover kit from Z Car Source, turned out much better. 👍
  11. Not a Z, but if you're looking for a nice 620 pickup to compliment your Z, here you go. I'm not affiliated with it, even though it's nearby. https://www.ebay.com/itm/185205713353?hash=item2b1f1ee9c9:g:xqQAAOSwe2dhsVU6
  12. Backstory…Had a few oil drips from the speedo cable area, not a lot, just annoying. Ordered a new o-ring and seal, disassembled and installed. No more leaks for a few hundred miles, great! A few weeks ago I was getting on the freeway, rather briskly I admit, you know, get up to 80ish or so to merge with all the other crazy drivers. I notice the speedometer jumping around a bit, and finally stopped working altogether. Weird, pull the speedo gear out and teeth are really worn on just one side of the gear. Speedo cable spins fine from below, no kinks in cable, pinion gear turns fine in the carrier. Can’t figure out why it failed. Maybe tail shaft bearing is worn, allowing the worm gear to flex down onto pinion? Anyway, so began my search for a replacement 16 tooth yellow speedo gear. Found one, but it’s not in the greatest shape. Pic shows original (right) and replacement.
  13. Okay, who's hoarding all the yellow 240Z 16 tooth speedometer pinion gears? No problem getting the 17 through 20's, but not the original yellow one. 🤔 Found one from another guy in town, but it's teeth didn't look so good. Using it anyway. Ken
  14. Thanks, yep, I read that one, good thread. 👍 I agree! Thanks for the Banzai lead, wish I knew that a month ago. 🤷‍♂️ Hopefully my new foam will work with Banzai's kit. There might be some slightly used seat covers in the classified section in a few weeks.
  15. In the process of redoing the seats, and ordered the foam and seat covers from Interior Innovations (I think they come out of Pakistan). Pictured is my passenger bottom with the new vinyl cover from Interior Innovations, along with my original back. Color is a dull matte color, but the original is more glossy, has two different textured materials. Kind of a shame to redo the top since it looks pretty decent, but have no choice. Kind of bummed how this is turning out. I asked a couple months ago here about which kit others are using, but not much response. I like the material used on this threads seat, except they're missing the vents. Did I buy the wrong kit? Thanks!
