    Always have loved the Z’s. My first car was a 260z and growing up at one point my family owned 14 z’s at one time from 240z to 280zx.

  1. Hey Roberts280z I see you are in Houston. I’m up in Conroe just wondered how far away you are. I have a 77 280z and I’m lookin into installing A/C on mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hey everyone, I’ve just about tracked down all the parts I need but I am having trouble finding new vacuum lines for the vacuum system. Does anyone know where I can find them? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Dang that looks good! I want to do that to mine, did you just drop it off at the powder coat shop to get that done? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Dang that sucks to hear. Thanks for the info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you Texasz! I will defiantly look into that for sure. I have heard good things about the z shop in Austin, might be worth sending it over there. Thanks again for the info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Hey everyone, I’m looking for someone near me (I’m in Conroe TX) to get some work done on my 77 280z. As I’m sure y’all are like me when it comes to your Z, you don’t want just anyone working on it. I’m basically looking to have A/C installed. I’ve finally tracked down all the parts, factory inside all new under the hood. Thanks for any recommendations! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hello everyone, I had a question for y’all. I’m in the process of adding air conditioning to my 77 to 280Z (did not come with air unfortunately) I have tracked down all the dash components for a factory set up and going to go after market under the hood. With that being said my question is for the fan blower upgrade is do you still have to have the resister for the upgrade? I have an a/c and sub harness and according to the FSM you also need to change out the resister when adding a/c. But if I do the blower upgrade is that still required or does the new blower come with it? Does that make sens
  8. Thanks for all the information, it has defiantly help me understand how all this works together and I had no idea about the sub harness! Now I just need to track down a resister and I’ll be good to go! Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok thanks for the info that’s a big help being able to see it. I herd if I went with the blower upgrade it came with the correct resister so I wouldn’t need one, just what I heard. So currently I have everything for the dash except for the A/C sub harness so my next question is are you selling that one [emoji23]?? If I understand correctly if I want to use the 4 speed switch that comes on the a/c face plate then I need to also switch the resister out as well but if not then it will still work with the 3 speed one just won’t have the extra speed, is that right? Regardless I do need the sub harn
  10. Thanks Captain Obvious, I also wanted to ask if I do a blower upgrade either with a Honda or a Kia would the resister and or sub harness be needed? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks Steve, do you know anything about having to replace the resister for A/C for the blower? It talks about it in the FSM. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hey everyone, hope all y’all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! I have a question. So far I’ve been able to track down most of the parts I need for adding A/C but I did notice on the control panel for non a/c it has a 3 speed setting for the blower motor and 4 speeds on the a/c face plate. Do I need to change anything out on the blower motor for this or is it just plug and play? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just wrote this guy that’s selling the dash portion I posted earlier and this is what he said. If that true sounds like it would be a good unit to work with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I was also looking at those as well, it looks like that about what I’m going to end up paying for those parts. Do you think I would be able to have all factory dash components and updated under the hood. Like if I wanted to go R134A system, just wondering if they would play nice together or not. I’m pretty much learning about how all this A/C works and your help has been greatly appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
