  1. Has anyone powder coated or painted the hatch or door locks? I am going to paint my chrome/stainless trim black on my 280z but didn't know about the locks, especially the hatch lock, given the fact that it pushes in. Thanks

    Panel gaps

    Right now the car is in primer and I'm going to use a calipers. After paint I'll probably use wood as well.

    Thanks guys. I do plan to start from back to front. Was hoping to get an idea of what others have achieved with panel gaps just to get a frame of reference when I start the process. Thanks

    Panel gaps

    I am preparing to paint my 1976 280z. I am doing panel alignment and fitment while the body is still in primer so I can make adjustments if necessary. I am looking for some panel gap numbers from people to get an idea of the ranges. Even better if you have done your own panel fitment and adjustment. A maximum and minimum if possible for each spot. Looking for gap measurements on: Fender to hood Fender to door Door to quarter panel Hatch to body Thanks in advance
  6. View Advert Looking for drivers door patch panel My 1976 280z driver's door has a unpullable dent at the top right where where the mirror bolts to it. It's in an extremely tight location and I don't think I can pound it out. Wondering if anyone has a rusty door that they could cut out a patch panel out of. I *think* any year 240-280 should work but not 100% sure. Advertiser fusion Date 10/21/2021 Price Category Parts Wanted Year 1976 Model 280z

  8. Car was media blasted to bare metal and sprayed with epoxy primer. Metal looks good.
  9. I am using Marugen Shokai over fenders. They seem to have a bit of range of where they can be mounted.
  10. I am in the early stages of fitting my rear ZG flares on my 280z. I have read through a lot of install threads, most of which have broken picture links. My understanding is the best way to decide how high up to mount the flares is to remove the spring from my BC racing coilover to allow the shock to compress all the way to the bump stop. However, when I did that, I can only compress the shock up so far until the rear wheel/tire (275-50-r15) runs into the factory wheel arch. There is still a ways to go before the bump stop bottoms out. But it's extremely hard to measure the distance remaining. It's a chicken-and-egg scenario. I can't determine where to make my cut line until I can compress the wheel/tire all the way, but I can't do that without cutting the metal first. I must be missing something, any thoughts?

  15. My car is currently a bare shell, otherwise I'd be glad to help.
  16. Thanks man, looks great. Any issues with warpage? Anything you would have done differently?
  17. I am prepping a 1976 280z for paint. I'm assuming most people separate the sugar scoop from the fender when painting the car and paint both separately? Is there a gasket or anything that sits between them? Anyone have any experience or pictures where the scoop is welded to the fender? Obviously there would be a chance to warp the metal. But given they are tightly bolted together, curved surfaces, and it's a flanged butt joint, seems like it would be fairly resistant to warping. Seems straightforward to jump around making a lot of tack welds, grind smooth and finish with a skim coat of filler. But I wanted to get some opinions. Any pictures would be great. Thanks in advance.
  18. What do most people do when restoring a car? I'm thinking about welding it and body working it.
  19. I am breaking down a 1976 280z to prep for media blasting. As I was breaking down the hatch, I noticed inside it that there was a bracket in the lower middle, just above the release button. It's not attached to the outer skin. It almost looks like there was a piece of foam between it and the sheet metal. Can anyone shed some light on this?
