  1. So that begs the question - where is my reverse light switch?
  2. Gents, I'm assuming this crusty old wire/switch is for the reverse light switch. However, it mounts to the top of my transmission as opposed to the side (which I have seen). Can anybody tell me if the one linked below will fit? It looks entirely different... https://zcardepot.com/products/reverse-back-up-light-switch-240z-260z-280z Thanks!
  3. Very good catch! I also find myself distracted by the green pretty often 😂
  4. It's been a slow month/six weeks due to work and moving house, but some progress this past weekend. Starting to put the front end back together. Hopefully things pick up speed over the next few weeks.
  5. It was a friend of a friends'. Sitting on a stand for a little while but not too worried as it'll be rebuilt anyway. For now I'll sit on it in case I need to harvest any parts for my original motor, which should be going back in within the next 2-3 weeks (I've been saying that for a while 😅).
  6. Took a Sunday drive down PCH to pick up a second L28 - N42/N42 today. Plan is to build this into a 200hp+ NA motor in parallel with the build and in 12-18 months to upgrade to Megasquirt and drop this motor in. Most of the accessories (alternator, AC compressor, clutch fan, valve cover, flywheel, fuel rail, exhaust manifold, etc.) will be coming up for sale so if anybody needs anything let me know.
  7. I've already taken the coating out of this area. Bushings are being pressed right now. Also got my new engine mount insulators bolted up, and for some reason I felt compelled to use some more of the foam I used on the fuel tank straps on the jacking point of the cross member. I guess in my head it's going to stay in this condition 😅
  8. Cross member, control arms, TC rods, sway bar and some other parts freshly sandblasted and powder coated. Ready for new bushings tomorrow and hopefully get the front end reinstalled over the weekend.
  9. Not entirely sure what to do with the ball joints and steering knuckle. They look in ok shape, so considering just giving them a quick clean up before putting everything back together. Any thoughts? They're not expensive so is it worth replacing since everything's apart anyway?
  10. I also got the welds from yesterday cleaned up and painted. Not sure what the standard is here but I did a couple of coats of SEM self-etching primer followed by several coats of Rustoleum Flat Black Enamel. Should do the job!
  11. Well I managed to get everything taken apart today and ready to be blasted and powder coated tomorrow.
  12. Crossmember, lower control arms, TC rods and other suspension parts will be getting blasted and powder coated on Monday - if I can get everything separated tomorrow that is. Some of these bolts don't want to let go after 40 years...
  13. Some progress today... Next week should see lots more!
  14. Yes and no. It is from their next shipment, but has a few cosmetic flaws (will post some more pictures later when I get to it). I happened to be in the area yesterday so went and picked it up. The flaws are very minor and would need to be pointed out (to me at least) to be noticed.
