  1. Almost everything I've ordered for this car that says fits 240z never fits perfectly. The master cylinder was backwards, that was a pain for awhile. I want to smooth out the ride of this and keep as much as original as possible. What's the best way to do this keeping it original? I went for a ride today on a road that had a lot of patches and it was rough, if felt like there were no shocks.
  2. I had the z detailed today 2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I've been driving and just enjoying the 70z. I found another z in a garage. This one has been sitting for over 30 years and appears to be in great shape. Something I haven't done to the 70 z is any suspension work. I think it would be a good idea to check out he bearings and running gear. I don't want the car to be down long, so I'm looking for advise on how to start this and what I can do that will not keep the car down for long. I don't want to do any work twice, I'd rather have it down longer and complete any logical work to be done at the same time. Front first? Back first? Is there anything that might be too difficult for my skills. So far I've been able to do everything to get this car on the road. It sat for 15 years, and it required a lot of work.
  4. I'm creating a matrix/spreadsheet that I'll use to rebuild the 70 240z. I'd like to outline everything that can be done that I'd be able to use to get bids for portions I don't want to do, and track the things I want to do. I can see it being use for a full rebuild being done by myself, or getting bids from others. Any ideas?
  5. Again my poor communications. It the clutch pedal assembly. My 1970 series 1 is an automatic! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Is $350 a reasonable price for a series 1 clutch assembly.
  8. Thank you. I’m all over that thread. The seats in that thread don’t have the webbing like mine. The rest of the thread dies apply. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. I removed the drivers seat today in preparation of installing new foam and seat covers. I'm providing some pictures here looking for ideas and the proper way to rebuild the seats. This is the bottom of the seat, lots of dry rot. Is there a way to replace these straps like original? The back adjuster seems to be missing a part, or is this how it looks? Any idea where I can get the parts to fix this? Is there a replacement part for these plastic protectors? Or material I can make new ones out of ? How are people doing this ? Things I found under the seat. Where can I find one of these ? Additional photos. The seat rails look like they are a military green. The grease is still in place but dried out. The fact that the grease is still there since 1970 is interesting. Any ideas what kind of grease this is? It's dry nature might be natural, but I doubt it? I'm not sure rebuilding these is something I'm going to be able to do, I may need to take them to a shop. I'm just concerned they will throw them together and not be concerned with getting them close to correct.
