  1. It was flatbedded to SZRpro this morning. Waiting for their report.
  2. So I decided to use SZRpro for all the to-be-determined work on the 240z. It’s about 25 miles from my house so I’m going to have the car towed. The owner, Dane, seemed very knowledgeable. Here’s their website: https://szrpro.com/ They also have a Facebook page. I’ll post here throughout the entire repair process. I guess now we get to really see if I truly got a great deal at Mecum.
  3. This is a long shot, but has anyone in Houston used Bobby Harting at Tech Auto Maintenance, 37 Waugh Dr, Houston, TX 77007?
  4. You guys are great. Thanks for the interest and support.
  5. It looks pretty good. Would you mind taking a photo or sending a link to the product so I don't buy the wrong one?
  6. Zup, I do think the door is slightly off and that your perception is correct. I will add that to the repair list. Hardway, The reserve was only $10,000. And Mecum was simply the wrong venue for this car. It should have been on BaT.
  7. I’ll play with it. The grill is definitely facing the right way. I think it just needs to be leveled slightly.
  8. And few gratuitous engine compartment shots:
  9. Jesus. Is the grill installed backwards?
  10. That would be awesome if he’d be willing to look the car over for me.
  11. I need to figure that out. Although I’ve always been a Miata guy, I am developing feelings for the car. I really would like to find a local buddy with Z expertise who could look at the car, tell me what it’s worth and what needs to be done to it to make it 100%. At that point I’d be able to make a more informed decision.
  12. I’m reluctant to use Awesome Z because the prior owner of the car said he paid them $5000 for a lot of work, and not everything was done correctly. Have you heard anything about SZRpro off 1960?
  13. I’m looking for a mechanic specializing in old Zs who can properly sort, service and fix anything that needs fixing or updating on the Z I recently purchased at Mecum. Any recommendations?
