    I did actually look at that, but it looks like I have one 240z door and on 260z door. The other handle will only work on the passenger side. Grrr!

    I have spent the last week sweating it out in the heat fitting seatbelts and reassembling the doors.

    Mine was a new genuine Nissan one from a one off seller (it was US$69). I did a quick search and there is one in the US on ebay at the moment for not much more. Just do a search 😉

    I have got one coming from Japan for about AU$100. Nissan in Aus wanted around $350!

    This week I redo my Datsun's dash repair with a factory style textured finish.

    That is a good idea, I will do that while I can still get to it.

    I just went and had a look at that. They actually look very good. I will se how my end result is when it is done and make my final decision then.

    In this episode I have a go at repairing the dash and also modify and fit an accelerator cable to my Z.

    In this episode I install the electric fuel pump and tidy up some more of the engine bay in the 680g

    I am installing the pump today and that video will be out tonight. Are you running yours with a return or not? I have ordered a regulator anyway, so wee will see how it all comes together.

    That is some great information. I have a K&N fuel pump I am installing that makes 4-7psi, so I will need to order a fuel pressure regulator to go with it. I will aim to set it up something like the picture above.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing day to you all. Today I tinkered a bit and I got the carbies installed

    It is more a matter of what I can get that will fit. I still have some research to do in that area, although as the rims are right to the edge of the flares, I will probably err on the narrow side.

    So if I am too lazy to pour through 11 years of threads, those who did the swap I have done, what was the result? Either way I will be putting mine together and checking the actual results I get. We will see. I get jaded about some of these long threads as there are so many contradictory impressions, that it is difficult to separate the 'wheat from the chaff'. I just went through something similar headaches trying to work out the best width and offset for wheels to fit ZG flares. You would think that it has been done for years and there would be plenty of info available, but I searched countless threads on different forums and couldn't find anything useful. I ended up manually going through and measuring the width and offset of the factory wheels and then measuring where I wanted them to sit. I ended up getting 15x9 -20 all round which I have just received and they look like they will sit just right.
