    Restoration of my 72 240Z

    That’s exactly what I have on my 280z and have been very happy with it. I also had to have a small resonator installed it was pretty obnoxious without it. On this 240 build I was looking to stay a bit more stockish.

    Restoration of my 72 240Z

    Yes it’s a stock E-30 and yes I used the MSA premium exhaust. It’s pretty straight forward, just get everything hung loose and then tighten it up. I plan on having the flanges welded up at an exhaust shop since they tend to leak. I have another car I used the system on and they leaked. I purchased the plated items from a number of sources. I have a bunch of things I need plated and am looking for a good source to do this in Florida

    Slowly reassembling the engine, just about all parts have made it to me.

    Restoration of my 72 240Z

    Thanks, I was a little concerned with the stretch but watched a video on how to address. The other side of the car in the exact same spot is damaged as well but not as bad. That’s why I think it was a parking block...

    Tried my hand at metal dolly work. My project car evidently had been driven over a parking block or something. I got it reasonably straight

    Headlight lense polishing

    The Meguiars worked really well. I applied it with my small air driven buffer. Thanks for the tip!

    MSA exhaust system went on today, fits like a glove. Headlight covers now going on.

    Restoration of my 72 240Z

    Balance tube shaved and intake cleaned up, things slowly going back together. Just when I think I have everything I discover a missing gasket, bolt etc. Installed the new heater valve and hoses, yesterday, boy was that fun, I think I lost 5 pounds doing that. Exhaust going on tomorrow.

    Do you have a pic of one of the re-plated fuel rails? I would like to purchase along with some other smalls that are replated. Thanks

    A few more from along the way. Hope to have the engine fired in another 3-4 weeks.

    Restoration of my 72 240Z

    I had high hopes of documenting step by step the restoration of my 72 but life got in the way. I am going to post on this thread going forward and turn back the clock a few months. Car was a good clean California car almost rust free car but needed love just about everywhere. Paint is driver quality so my plan is to do what I can to make it a nice driver with intentions to paint later.

    Nice, I have a set of turn signals that also need some love. Sent from my iPhone using Classic Zcar Club mobile
