    Found old Z pictures. I’ll start!

    Here is an old pic of my yellow 1970 which I owned back in the 70's. The orange one is an early 1971 series one I just picked up a few months ago.

    Series 1 interior restoration

    Finally installed a new part into the stripped out interior. New firewall insulator. I added a sheet of vinyl to the cardboard because it looked a little cheap. Looked great with the vinyl and fit pretty darn well with just a little trimming need.

    Series 1 interior restoration

    I want to keep it as close to original as possible, but upgrade certain areas that help it maintain a certain semblance of civility. Sort of like Pantera owners adding aftermarket radiators and fans. You may have a point. Not sure if slightly better illuminated gauges would offend MOST potential buyers. I am not going for a 100% pure original restoration. I’ll have to think it through and listen to more opinions. Appreciate your input!

    Series 1 interior restoration

    I have decided to stick with the original vinyl since it in perfect original condition and just re-install the original dash. I will cross my fingers that it continues on in its current uncracked condition. I think I will convert the instrument lighting to LED because it is pretty dim.

    72 240z radio wiring

    Resurrecting this thread. The blue wire that is cut actually should go to the 3 pin connector blue wire with the fuse holder in between. Does anybody know where the red wire with dark blue stripe (dial illumination wire) gets plugged into on the dash wiring harness? I assume I need to look for the matching red wire with a dark blue stripe, but I don't see one. The PO put in an aftermarket radio and wires are cut and spliced all over the place.

    Guess you missed it. The dash has been removed. No cracks. Just not sure if it will last. Anybody on this site install the Vintage Dash?
  10. I have a couple of questions regarding some options that can be done when restoring the price nterior of my series 1. I am having the seats reupholstered with leather, but not sure whether to use vinyl or leather on the tranny tunnel and the rear wheel wells and shock towers. The original vinyl is in perfect condition, but I sort of want to go with the leather since they use the same diamond pattern as the vinyl. Will this hurt or help re-sale if I ever decide to sell it? I have the dash out and am replacing the heater core and actuator. The dash is original and uncracked but I know that it is 45 years old and not sure how long it will stay that way. Do you think it would be a good idea to install a Vintage Dash replacement or just keep the original and hope it holds up? Thanks in advance for any and all advice. BTW I will attemp to restore the gaskets in the heater box which have disintegrated.......

    OEM AM Radio- Will it add value?

    I ponied up and paid the price for the AM radio. Brings back memories. I will get the conversion so it will be 4 speaker compatibility with FM and has the ox cord plug so I can hook it to an IPhone

    OEM AM Radio- Will it add value?

    He 7tooZ I checked out your idea and sure enough there are companies that can do this. I never would have known. I like this idea because the dash keeps the stock look but I can get a 4 speaker stereo from the standard radio. Now I just have to decide if the AM only is worth the $300 upcharge over the am/fm. Hmmm........
  13. I wanted to get a few opinions on whether is is worth spending close to 1000.00 for a stock AM radio to install in my March 1971 build. Car is rust free, glass out repaint, all original interior in near perfect condition. Engine has been completely rebuilt and except for some non braided hoses looks original. Non original parts are: a 280Z 5 speed and an aftermarket CD player. Any thoughts / opinions would be appreciated.
  14. Found the screw. Unfortunately I still have to disconnect the cables to pull the panel. You have to be a contortionist to do this.......
  15. Thanks for the quick reply. I looked and felt for it with no luck. I'll give another closer look.
