    Gauge issues

    Same happened to me on my 74. Ended up being the fuse connectors. Over time, the connections get a bit lose, I pinched it closer together and solved the issue.
  2. Just took this pic now… hope this helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. After painting the air dam. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This was the fitment before paint: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had no fitment issues with my air dam, should line right up with the fenders. Will try to find some old pics to confirm.
  6. Same thing happened to me recently. Ended up getting a M6 1.0 80mm hex bolt and used a file to grind the head. It actually worked and the square nuts that came with the car fit.
  7. @carrottoplives I posted the files above on comment #5, you can download them and have them printed. Unfortunately I don't have access to a 3D printer at the moment, it's with my son who is away at school.
  8. I had my Xenon air dam painted when I had my car painted, and it turned out really good. I also had my old lower valance that I took off repaired and painted at the same time, this will allow me to go back to the original front down the road if I felt like it.
  9. I'm fairly new to carbs, been playing around with them but never did understand the intricate details on how they actually work. Found a neat youtube vid that explains how they work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toVfvRhWbj8
  10. Lookin good, same colour combo as my car. 🙂

  12. Interesting, was not aware of Speeduino. I'm reading up on it and very intrigued with it's simplicity, might be a good fit as I'm only looking to add EFI for drivability. Thanks for mentioning this.
  13. Interesting, I've been getting conflicting information. I plan on using Microsquirt as the ECU and one of the input it requires is MAP for load. I will also need a vacuum line for my HVAC as this controls the vents inside the car (has nothing to do with the ITB setup)
  14. I'm n the process of converting my 260z (stock motor) from dual carbs to EFI ITB. Started to collect the various parts and doing my homework. I have a good understanding on the conversion but still not clear on how the vacuum lines should be set up. The ITB intake manifold I have has a single vacuum nipple which is used for the brake booster. When I convert this to EFI: Can I leverage the same vacuum line and add a T? Or is it better to tap into all the intakes and hook this up to a vacuum manifold? I will have to drill holes and tap into this if I take this route. I thinking I will need the vacuum to connect to the following: Brake booster Fuel regulator MAP sensor HVAC controls (my car has factory AC) Thanks!
  15. Sorry to hear about your health. 😞
  16. You can still buy the OEM dome light, part number 26410-e4100.
  17. Perfect, thanks for tips. Will look into this for sure as I do plan on printing with ABS. I'll send you the STL file via PM. 260zDoorTrimEndRH3.stl 260zDoorTrimEndLH3.stl
  18. Agreed. Didn't realize how useful it would be until my kids picked one up. I also ended up making a blank plate to fill in where the fuel light would go on the center console. There's a few more things I have in mind to make, but this will be for another time.
  19. My kids picked up a 3D printer over the holidays, so I thought I try to figure it out and learn how to use it. I just happened to be replacing the rubber wipes on the door window trim, and noticed there were no end caps. Not sure if this is how the car came, or just went missing over the years. I downloaded FreeCAD and started to play around with it. After a lot of youtube videos, I was able to design and print some caps. Haven't installed them on the car yet to confirm the overall fitment, so hopefully no issues. I used PLA filament for the sample pieces (it's the only one I have at the moment). If these work out, I will pick up some ABS filament and reprint them.
  20. I used the same place to get my high lift kit about 10 years ago. It was a high quality kit and the instructions were decent. This was my first attempt at upgrading my garage door and it turned out very well. I also added a jackshaft garage door opener which is a must if you're taking this route.
  21. Another one for Bandpak. Had the lift for about 5 years now and it's been trouble free. Really helps when working on the car. If you have the headroom, go for it. My garage ceiling is 11ft high and just enough to clear the Datsun and my Mustang.
