    Re keying door locks

    Absolutely. I took all of my lock cylinders to an automotive locksmith and he keyed them all the same.
  3. It looks like Toyota took their busiest design elements and grafted them onto a BMZ Z4 M coupe. Oh well.

    I just bought a clock from him a month ago. Smooth transaction with quick shipping.

    vintage dashes 280z

    That new dash looks sweet! My dash is out of the car with the old, cracked pad removed. I cleaned up some surface rust on the metal skeleton. I still need to implement the wiring changes to go from an ammeter/fuel gauge to the later voltmeter/fuel gauge.

    I’m really looking forward to receiving the new dash in the coming week(s).

    I'm one of those people now

    Me too! This thing is great and it even matches my Z’s interior.

    Interesting read

    Great article. It got me daydreaming about what my ‘75 280Z could become. Well, if I had umpteen cubic dollars to spend on it. 😁

    Steering Effort Differences Between Years

    1975 - 3.1 turns L-to-L, as recorded by my calibrated eyeballs.

    Is that hat available in period-correct colors?

    1975 specs are the same as for 1976.
