    Beautiful red
  3. Got used two post Rotary going in tomorrow morning. Rotary SPOA10-FA . It's from a Sears store. This should be good enough for a Z car. 🙂
  4. As I understand it the Rotary are good lifts, it’s just the revolution that’s bad , is that corrrect?
  5. I was just getting a quote on a rotary lift installation and the guy suggested Rotary/Revolution, does anybody have experience with these lifts? I believe they are imported . Bad idea to use these ?
  6. What should I use to fasten these bumpers back on ?

    Internal rivets

    I'm sure this method has been used before, but this is the first time I've removed these rivets. Looks like whoever removed this rivet lost the center, so they replaced it with a piece of wire. possibly 18 gauge pretty cool. When I removed the panel I found the plastic centers they lost years ago.
  8. Thank you. I've got it in my shop by the door with a fan blowing the fumes out the door. It will have lots of time to cure.
  9. I got my tank back today. I asked them not to paint it, but they painted it. I was going to por15 it. Now I have just one vent, facing the right way. I also had them line, that's the picture of the inside. I've never seen this done before. I really wanted to do the por on it, and now I need to clean it up. I was thinking about taking it to a place that does powder coating, and having it sand blasted and then doing the POR on it. should I just have it powder coated. Ideas?

    Love the z

    Cool story . Thank you
  11. What’s this? I’m considering having the radiator flushed, should I have this one done also? Should I put it back in service ?
  12. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Datsun-240Z-Sports-S30-Owner-Owners-User-Guide-Operator-Manual-2-4L-6Cyl-/372495714710 I just found this same manual in my glove box.
  13. I was out working on my carbs and I thought of this picture. How did you get your engine so clean looking. I know I cold polish it, but I don't think that would look good. This is a great looking engine. Did you make that air cleaner ?
  14. It's possible that my car is the first automatic.
  15. According to this https://web.archive.org/web/20131128034951/http://www.editgrid.com/user/mlwilliams/Z_Car_Registry The car was made in 1970, but is a registered 1971. I found other sources like this that lead me to believe the same thing. I'm not going to take the time to re-register it as 71
  16. It looks to me from searching vins on this site that H L S 3 0 - 0 8 9 0 6 is a 1971. Mine being 0987 would also make it a 71. The fact that the door plate is gone, and the oldest title has it as a 71, makes me believe that the guy I bought it from did something to change the title to 70. I was pretty happy with the fact that it's a 70. I know it's still a good deal, but there was a little pride in knowing I had a 70. Weird how I got there, especially when i knew nothing about Z's until I got this car. I always liked the looks, but never got into them. Is there any benefit to the changing of the year from 71 to 70?
  17. Is this the normal method to conceal wires ?
  18. Finn, the dog likes being in the back of the z.
  19. I don’t think there is a door plate! Is there another way to tell
  20. I'm a little confused about the year of the car. The title in 1982 says it's 1971. The most current title says it's a 1970. The vin is the same on all the titles it's hls3008987. What is the actual year?
