    Things could be a lot worse IMO. Hillary the con artist herself who lies even on a good day could be at the podium. Thank God not!

    COVID-19

    We go on a State wide lock down as early as tomorrow. How long who knows. Don't know if I will be able to take the Z out until maybe Fall. $100 fine if I get caught it sounds like now. I really do feel sorry for small business owners. I do think a great many of them will not survive this. Then there are the workers that are employed by them. Even medium to larger businesses are in the same boat.

    COVID-19

    The COVID-19 stimulus was close to an agreement until Pelosi arrived back from recess and said she is now introducing her own bill. She is adding more pork such as a new more broad Obamaphone program. Also payoff of student debt of $10,000 per person, mandating stricter airline carbon emissions, etc. Who knows what else. GOOD GRIEF! This will never get passed soon.
  4. I purchased these for the dash. Have not installed yet until it warms up here. I read a post somewhere about these working really well. https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/ba9s-ba7s/ba9s-led-bulb-4-led-ba9s-retrofit-car-classic-car-bulbs/6/ The size looks perfect to me. Will know later.

    That would mean I would be dead man walking as its put. I am in that category. I may have to plan a Z parts selloff exit strategy. 😬
  6. I am not concerned about a bolt falling out as I am not having a lock pin installed to keep the bolt from turning in the strut housing and galling it out to oval shape. I see the aftermarket control arms do not have theirs lock pinned like OEM was. That kind of concerns me. There was a guy selling these 5/8" bolts with a flat machined for the lock pin some time ago. A bolt like that could be used in place of the oem spindle pins I would think. In fact I for one would buy a pair. Comments and opinions?
  7. Being a race car will you be going back to the stock control arm and new pin or an adjustable aftermarket control arm? Just curious.
  8. Well this is a very early 1972 near me. It even has the vertical rear defrost from the 71Z. And it only has 2,600 miles on it. Makes the subject 71 green Z look kind of long in the tooth. Only downside I see is that it is an automatic trans. And brown in color.
  9. If I had that sort of money, myself, I would rather order a MZR build Z from the UK. Plus what I always wanted, a 66 GT350 Mustang. And still have a few bucks left over. Or my friends Ferrari 288 GTO before he sold it.
  10. Road and Track calls it an 'absurd' price. But then admits at the end the price makes sense. Well maybe for some people it does I guess. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a30502658/1970-datsun-z432r-sold-800000-auction/?src=socialflowFBRAT&fbclid=IwAR0YG5jsXUkXpmPoQpTdFH4fMF6R1KF2gTpPdvXeMGCSMoDZf76_0XpnRXA

  12. There is a early 72 near me that has the vertical defroster lines. It has only 2,600 miles on it. He just drives it around the block once a week during the summer. Still has the original tires on it.

    Rota RB Help!!!

    Many sellers on Ebay sell that same style lug in what ever finish you want. I bought a set of black ones there. Work great.
  14. I ran 215/60-14 fronts and 225/60-14 rears on lower springs with no rubbing issues. In my case though the wheels were 14X6.5 with +13 offset. 14X7 zero offset could have rubbed. Hard to say.
  15. I think I mentioned this before in another thread. I had this issue with 5th gear when I installed a 280Z 5 speed in my 72. Tried other shifters but still the same. Then I learned that there is a 280Z shifter that has the shorter end like the 280ZX shifter shown. After installing that it was perfect. No grinding a notch needed. See if I can find my photo of it.
