  1. I'll do that, I know the battery is good cuz I put in the new one the last owner have me with it and it is dated 8/20
  2. I bought it from some kid up in Seattle yesterday and had it towed down to Olympia where I live
  3. My car is far from perfect, all I currently have are exterior pictures to show damages. And everything on it is as I got it. I'll take engine bay pictures once home from work but structurally it is sound is just exterior damage. But yeah I'll get the engine bay pictures posted here tomorrow and hopefully you guys can help me figure this gem out
  4. So I just recently (yesterday) bought myself my very first Z car. A 1980 Datsun 280zx completely stock. I'm about to do an alt on it in hops to getting it running! She will start with a charged battery then die when charge dies. I was originally told it was lacking the Alt belt but upon inspection the belt was actually there so I presume that would mean the Alt is faulty. is there anything else I should take into consideration and close look at while restoring this? any problem spots or things worth doing for the long run? Unknown miles and while its running there's no weird noises other than an exhaust leak. any help is appreciated!!
