    Drove my 71 daily for 20 years. <br /><br /><br />
    The current 72 is a fair weather driver with minimal updates to improve the enjoyment. <br /><br />
    In 2017 added a R200 with a M-factory LSD(now sold) and an 83 close ratio 5 speed.<br /><br />
    Added an R180 CLSD 3.90 in 2018

    SS Bumpers from Vietnam

    It dulled the finish. Further polishing was difficult without removing the bumper. Took it to a professional who quoted 250.00 to polish. So I gave up and gave away the bumpers and had two bumpers rechromed at a quality shop. One of the best things I added to my car. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    SS Bumpers from Vietnam

    My comments were in regard to my experience with Harrington bumpers I had purchased. Not all SS is the same. Sounds like others have had a better experience. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    SS Bumpers from Vietnam

    Are you saying you used steel wool on yours and it equaled the original finish? 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    SS Bumpers from Vietnam

    My experience with SS bumpers from Harrington is you must be very careful cleaning them. They scratch very easy and are not easy to bring back to the original shine. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.
  9. I realize it seems so simple. I have been driving and working on early Zs for 30 years and made a wiring mistake on my current 72. It took a friend 5 minutes to look at it and move one wire to cure a similar problem. Ps I probably have five working tachometers if you need one. Let me know and can send you one. Changing out a tach is no very much fun. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

  11. David before you do anything else go back and double check the wiring you touched when changing the coil and condenser. Check all the wiring on the ballast also. Ps always helps if you tell us what you are working on. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    I was involved in two of these installation on early240z,s. In both cased we removed all of the original heater pieces and worked hard to adapt the vintage air to the original vents. It required custom mount fabricating. Custom compressor mounts and hoses. We never came up with a solution to the the control panel that I liked. Hopefully someone here had better experience. The labor cost alone was over $2500. 72 body and block, everything else 71, Tokico springs, Illumina, R180 CLSD, 83 close ratio, 3.90 gears, Ztherapy SUs, BRE 15X7 Libre wheels and BRE front spoiler.

    Time to renew my insurance????

    Carl thanks for confirming my understanding. The biggest lessen I have learned is to be sure you over insure the stated value because it will crepe up on you.
