  1. Did the Watanabe caps fit on the Rewinds with no modifiation? I want some wananotbees! Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  2. Have you looked at the VTO Classic 8's? Futofab has a couple sizes. For 15x7, looks like you have to select the custom drilled option then specify 4x114.3. Or you can just choose their cheaper option and do the 15x6 +3, which would pretty much guarantee you no rubbing problems...ever... http://www.futofab.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage_images.tpl&product_id=5&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

  5. Looks great! Mine also has a crack at the choke level slot. Where did you source yours from might I ask?
  6. Your options at 15x7 are pretty limited. If you are stuck on that size have you considered the Konig Rewinds? If you step it up to 15x8, there are lots. Do you want the panasport look or more JDM? What wheels have you considered? Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  7. Run 2.5 inch piping to a zstory jdm style muffler, no resonator. You won't be disappointed [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  8. I plan to do the Euro lips offered at most of the sites. It's Fiberglass right? Any feedback on fitment of these? I definitly wish the urethane one was more readily available! http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/50-1636 https://jdm-car-parts.com/products/datsun-240z-260z-280z-uk-euro-spec-oem-front-spoiler https://whiteheadperformance.com/product/classic-european-air-dam-front-spoiler-datsun-240z-260z/ Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  9. Looking for some thoughts/opinions on the setup of my DCOE 45's. I purchased my 240z and it came with 45's on it, which I've concluded are too big for my application, but will deal with it for the time being. For the time that I've owned the car, getting it started was always a hassle and there was a lot of stumbling/hesitation at the bottom end/slow speeds. The engine didn't really come alive until 5-6k RPM through 3rd and 4th gear, basically all top end and it ripped hard on the highway. A few weeks back I decided to have the carbs gone through and retuned by a local weber specialist. Now that I have the car back, yes starting is easier and bottom end hesitation has been somewhat improved, but the overall powerband feels flat across the board. I feel like the spunk has been removed . On top of that, I get popping during slower acceleration and lots of popping when throttling down. The guy attributed the popping to the valves needing adjustment. That said, I was hoping to gather thoughts on the tuning that was done. Below are the engine and carb specs that I have. Thanks for your help! Engine: Original L24 Original head with enlarged valves (don't know the valve specs) 6-2 headers Crane EI Carbs - Current Tune Weber DCOE45 Choke/Ventury: 30mm (was 32mm) Main Jet: 125mm Air Corrector: 175mm Idle Jet: 65mm Aux Ventury 4.5 E-Tubes: Unknown (F11 or F16) Pump Jet: Untouched and Unknown
  10. Rama, the one I have pictured has never been installed and has no cracks or chips. Essentially new! If you don't end up going the carbon route, I'd be willing to sell you mine for much less than what's listed on the zstore site. Shoot me a message if you're interested!
  11. I did some searching and presume this is what I have then, right? http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/classic01a/50-1609 I noticed all the listing say it's for a 74-78. Does that mean it's not meant to fit on my 72? Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  12. God I love forums. Thank you! Any pictures of it off the car or how you mounted it? Also curious what the letters might stand for. Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  13. Hmm yes I think you may be on to something here! [emoji12] Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
  14. Definitly could be, I'll do some searching on that. Just seems odd that it came with my car and is color matched. You'd think a test fit would be done before it was painted! Sent from my SM-G955U using Classic Zcar Club mobile
