    Picking a glove box lock?

    I took it completely apart and saved the good parts and then had fun with it in my own demolition derby! Don't fret... there was nothing left to salvage on this. The exposed metal was paper thin and worthless so going to take it for scrap. I tried for 30 minutes to pick that lock and now I have given up for good, not fun anymore and not going to pay a locksmith for something I am going to sell.

    Picking a glove box lock?

    Good guess on Mt St. Helen's but it was actually 3 years earlier! The car sat in a back yard for 42 years. I'm in Nebraska. It still had Centennial plates on it from 1976! The floors eventually rusted out, the car sank and I believe woodchucks made it there lodge. It was a huge mess to clean out! Every lock was locked and rusted shut so I had to cut out all the locks to be able to pry open the doors and start to shovel out the dirt. After I removed the dash I cut out the backside of the glove box and found a set of bicentennial coins still in the package! so there is hope for ya av8ferg! I got a fair amount of parts out of it like the Datsun 8 track and the whole dash is in great shape believe it or not!

    Picking a glove box lock?

    The lock tumbler on the passenger door was rusted badly that I couldn't read the numbers and nothing in the glove box. I just want to get it unlocked so the glove box can be used then sell the dash. I don't want to really pay a locksmith and figured the lock would be like a "general" lock that about anything would unlock it but that's not the case or my lock picking skills are lacking! So I did take the dash out and remove the lock. Even with the dash out and glove box torn out it's a chore to get that lock out since it's locked to the glove box door. I'll give it another go when I find some more patience or someone with lock picking skills can tell us the method they used.

    Picking a glove box lock?

    That and the inside of the passenger door were toast to get numbers off them! Believe it or not the dash is in really good shape and I got a Datsun 8-Track too! But no keys...

    Picking a glove box lock?

    Anyone know how to pick a glove box lock? I tried all my various Datsun keys and screw drivers to no avail. I ended up removing it but would like to get it unlocked so I can at least use it! I don't have the original keys as this came from a parts car I took apart.

    [SOLD] 240z 2400 valve cover

    apparently... someone delete this topic because it's evidently not for sale in our classified section and wasn't planned to be...
  9. I have the MSA Premium exhaust and I like it. Make sure NOT to use the down pipe exhaust gasket until you have fitted everything. I had to shave a bit off the flange to get it where I wanted. I realized that down pipe gasket is a one time use gasket and it didn't seal it %100 after squishing it a few times.

    Another interesting auction

    Door handles and everything else but the side lite trim is blacked out,which I think matches the blue well. Nice to see something other than an "original" once in awhile to spice things up.

    2 4 0 Z Uh Oh Project

    Awesome work and glad I found the link as I am doing mass repairs myself and your pictures are my guide. I suspect you already have the answer to the dogleg question but in case here is a pic and it should be almost straight across. I am going to have to get a shot bag because the piece you made to fit below the seat belt pocket was nice! Is that what you used? I had to cut and form the one I made. Keep posting! I am contemplating the rear quarter wheel wells but super apprehensive.
  12. If I were there I would have another Z. http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/5702041436.html Seems like a very good price.
  13. Oh great! I'll call them up and order them. Thanks.. just figured I'd have to buy it all..
  14. I don't want or need to buy a whole kit... all I need are the rear shock towers and wheel arches in black for a 240 if anyone has those pieces in good shape. Thanks.

    Advanced dash recover project.

    Excellent write up and the gauges are cool. After reading this I had to post how I did it 12 years ago.Same methodical plan just did it in the car. Kinda funny when I look back on it. The dash still looks perfect.
