    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. Thank you for all you advice! It is and has been very helpful. I do like the sound of your option 3, it would be nice to have the best of both worlds that’s for sure. I’ve been trying to find other z enthusiast near me but no luck, I haven’t even seen one on the road in forever. But I’ll just keep my eye out. I’m about 45 outside of Houston so I would think I’d be able to find some kind of z club to be able to see what other people have done but haven’t had to much luck there either. Thanks again for all your input! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks for the info, I’ve been going back and forth about how I want to do this. I like the idea of a aftermarket kit due to everything being new and updated but not sure about how it would look in the car, on the console etc. that’s the main reason I was even thinking of trying to track down all the original parts. Trying to find a parts car is like a needle in a hay stack these days with Z’s becoming more and more popular and like you said I’d probably end up pay a lot of money for 40 year old parts. Just really wish my z came with a/c but it didn’t so here I am..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Can anyone give me a list of all the parts I would need for a stock a/c system for my 280z. I’m thinking I’d rather get all the original parts rather than go aftermarket but not sure what all I need. Thanks everyone for all y’all’s input it’s been very helpful and hope everyone had a great thanksgiving!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thank you for it tips! I really hope I can find a whole package deal for OE. I’ve been trying to find anyone who has a z in a salvage yard but that has been.......not so easy . Thats good advise for the dash luckily my dash is not cracked and the car over all is in really good shape. I’ve got about 41,000 miles on it so far. Just need A/C to complete it, those Texas summers are something else and black on black don’t help . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the info! I gapping I can come across a complete system so I can keep everything looking factory. That’s the biggest concern with aftermarket kits is how does it look on the console ya know what I mean? Hopefully it all works out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’ve thought about trying to find all factory components but that’s proving to be easier said than done....one guy told me if I found a z car go buy a lottery ticket . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hey cgsheen1, so are you selling any of those complete a/c kits?? I think that would be the best option to have all factory parts but shoot this day and age you’ll lucky to even see a z much less find any parts cars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hi everyone, I’m really wanting to add a/c to my stock 77 280z. Unfortunately the car did not come with it so I’m looking into what my options are for adding it. I can’t find any reviews of people that have added it so I’m not sure where to start. Any advice from anyone that has done this would be very helpful! Thanks y’all!!

  9. Thanks! I’m happy with them! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Those look good, thanks for the idea. My tires are only about 6 months old. 215/60r 14 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This is the set I got off eBay. Pretty happy with it so far Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hey everyone just wanted to give a quick update. I decided to stick with the wheels I had and lowered it and did a 240z bumper mod. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for ALL the input guys! I really appreciate it!
  14. Thanks for the response and the picture! I think your Z looks great! I noticed you were able to put the front center caps on your Rota’s how did you do that? I’ve read that they won’t fit on the Z’s because the front spindle is to long for the caps.
  15. Thanks for the advise, I was just thinking of an updated look but maybe I will put that money in other areas, lowering or 240z front bumper mod.
