  1. I found something that will work. I had a brain fart and forgot about the fastener on top. For some reason I thought I needed a heavy duty mount inside the car.
  2. Got the new nubbins. Looks like these will work. Take a look
  3. I have a 1978 280z. Does anyone know where I can get a mount for my power antenna? I read the thread below which appears to show the original mount. I can't find it on-line though. Anyone have an alternative solution to mount it?
  4. I should be getting the one I bought in a couple of days. I can compare the two. I barely “bent” it so hopefully I didnt mess it up too bad. As long as the temp is not pegged and the oil pressure doesnt read zero its a win!
  5. Good news! It is fixed. I used 1000 grit sandpaper on the contacts and slightly bent the metal arm. Works as expected. I knew there had to be a way to fix it. Thanks for all the help guys. Keep knocking the finishing tasks off the list.
  6. If you need more pics let me know. I had to remove the compressor to fix the front frame rail. Now I am debating if I go back to R12 or upgrade. One more thing on the list
  7. Does this help? Mine is a 78 280z
  8. Thanks Steve, I bought one on ebay. I know nothing about how these work but I am extremely curious so I opened it up. It seems pretty straight forward though. How can I tell which part failed? Is there a way to bench test it? Like I said, I am just curious and love to see how things work. So it's all I can think about right now! ha!
  9. I pulled the gauge and I do have power from the dash harness. Since the issues resides at the gauge is there a way to fix the voltage regulator? Or wire a new one into the circuit. Or do I need to replace the gauge?
  10. Last night I was driving and the gauges started working again - sort of. They weren't consistent as they moved back and forth. Do you think it still has something to do with the regulator and I have to pull the gauge?
  11. which one of the test samples did you finally choose?
  12. I know this has been covered many times. However, I thought I would post to help others. I repainted my tail light rear panels this weekend - 1978 280z. I am very happy with the outcome. I know this may not suffice for the purists. I did an awful sanding job and I will have to go back and re-do it at some point. Here is what I used SEM 39033 Charcoal Trim SEM 13023 Low Luster Clear Color Krylon K01010A07 Premium Metallic Spray
  13. finally got around to testing the nubbins. They are close, not deep enough for the spring though
  14. Got my nubbins!! They look good. Have a major issue though. My wife threw away my springs. WTF!!!!!????? I have no words. Anyone know where I can get these or do I need to find someone to manufacture springs. I found this company - https://www.jamesspring.com/our-capabilities/compression-springs/
  15. Those come from the c6 block right?
