  1. BAT is where it will probably eventually end up. Right now we are focusing on making sure it looks EXACTLY like it did when sitting in the dealer's showroom. That will hopefully be completed in time for ZCON. This is mostly just detailed cleaning, other than the mechanical work cleaning brake and gas lines and getting the engine running.
  2. The Scallop hubcaps were on the 76 Z's. Here is an ad for 1976. https://www.hemmings.com/stories/2015/12/29/the-personalized-datsun-1976-280-z-brochure
  3. I don't know for sure, but I suspect the excessive undercoating was dealer applied. This was sold in Philadelphia, where there was lots of salt put on the roads.
  4. I'm betting the pins would pull right out, but I'm not going to verify that! 🙂
  5. Well, I finally started working on my "New" 280Z (350 Miles). I plan to have it finished and take it to ZCON in September. Larry from AMMO NYC came down last week and did a full Paint Preservation/Restoration, making the car look all the more unbelievable. I'll start adding some detail photos when I can, but here ar e a few.
  6. Yes, that's good advice. I haven't decided if I'm going to get this car running or eventually sell it as a barn-find time capsule.
  7. That's all shiny undercoating just like it looked in 1976. The engine only has 360 miles on it.
  8. Confused. That site says: We do not carry any parts for the Datsun ZCar.
  9. That's right. I need four. I'd rather not have to spend the $1,300 - $1,500 I've been seeing on-line.
  10. Does anyone have suggestions on where I could find 4 NOS hub caps? That's the one thing this car is missing.
  11. Here are some quick phone pictures of the underside and some of the removed and extra parts
  12. I finally got the floor painted in my new barn (had to wait 30 days). I got the 280Z up on the lift for the first time.
  13. Yes, I do have the bumper rubber parts - they are in perfect condition. The front bumper is brand new - still in the plastic bag. The PO had the license plate holes welded shut (no front plates in PA) and hat it re-chromed. He said it ended up looking terrible so he bought a new one. I do plan to eventually sell the car, My big decision is whether to keep it in it current dirty condition (as a barn find) or clean it up. And yes, I was VERY lucky (and it was all luck).
  14. 🙂 or a 42 year old newspaper in the hatch!
