    7/71 240Z - Need a lot of work, but has good bones. I've have a few British roadsters and this Z, by far, is much better.
    11/71 240Z - Repainted back to original silver. It's gonna be nice when she's done.

  1. Thanks. I created a signature block. For other members, you have to turn on the switch in settings to see other members' signature blocks too.
  2. During one of my question threads, someone recommended that I provide my car information with VIN #. Do I just provide that information with every post, or is there somewhere in my profile that I can enter it? I looked at others' posts and don't see it in their profile. I'm good either way, but I'd like to be consistent with what you more experienced folks are doing. thanks
  3. Will do Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you...I’ll look in my spare parts bin...I may have them, but didn’t pay attention to them. Fingers crossed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks [mention=11371]zKars[/mention]! So we’re on the same page. On the inside of the door, where the two bolts come through, there will be a plate welded (on the inside of the door panel). If the plate isn’t there, then I’ll need the baffle. Is that correct? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I’m reassembling my door latch assembly. On the parts list, attached and highlighted, what is the Door Handle Baffle? I have two 1971 240Zs and neither of them have what looks like the diagram. My guess it is a bracket that goes on the inside of the door to support the handle. Does anyone know what this is?
  7. Thanks for your inputs and links. I have one of each. One with the clock mechanism, with the large hole. The other has the other type spring. At this point, I think I’ll go with the older model and hope the spring does break; it has the correct sized hole in the ball crank for the bushing I have.
  8. @Zed Head do you have any thoughts?
  9. I removed my door latch mechanism and cleaned it up. When I reinstalled it, I realized that it wasn’t functioning smoothly. I pulled it out again and realized that the ball crank bushing was too small. After comparing it to a spare I have, I discovered that the hole in the ball crank (metal cam with hole in the middle) is larger than in the other car. I could install the spare, but it has issues of its own. Does anyone know if the mechanism changed between model years? The pic shows the spare with the smaller hole. I’ll post a comparison photo tomorrow.. If it did change, does
  10. Thanks for your responses. I'll work to seal that off.
  11. I’m going to install a VA Mini in one of my 1971s. Do I have to seal (weld) off the duct or just close it? It may be stupid question, but until I read this, I hadn’t thought about having to seal something off. I have everything removed from interior and am about to order the ac unit. I’m having the dash refurbished and cleaning up the wiring harness. one question I do have is should install the interior first or the AC unit? Any details regarding the VA AC install are greatly appreciated.
  12. I'm not sure about the license plate delete option...
  13. Thanks to all for your response. I'm clear now...much appreciated.
  14. @siteunseen did the little bracket go on the “L” shaped side? That’s where I took mine from when I removed it.
