  1. Jim, I just noticed that you have a 75z also. I'm close to Orange county so if you find a good shop please give me a shout. I hope to be getting my car back on the road before summers over. Ron
  2. Yea, I have only ever had one shop in Century City that knew how to adjust the camber without crating problems. The shop is long since out of business , but it would be nice to have a shop that really knows Z cars. I have been visiting several "Alignment " shops in my area and they will not be touching my car! Ron
  3. Suggestions for wheel alignment shops on SO Ca? Looking for one that caters to 240/280 Datsuns. Thanks ..Ron
  4. Ok I corrected it. Thanks again....Ron
  5. Thanks Zed. I was toooo lazy to flip the photo.. Actually, to make the corner I cut the seal at a 45 degree angle and glued it in place with shoe goo! Ron
  6. I finally figured out how to fix my door seal problem and thought I would pass on what I found. My problem was that my passenger door seal works perfectly , but my driver side you had to use both hands to shut the door . These seals were put on years ago and should have taken a set by now . From my research and talking to several rubber suppliers I was shocked to find that many Z car owners are experiencing the same problem I have. I looked at the fender alignment, hinge alignment, and door panel trying to discover what the heck was the wrong. Most of the door on the driver side sealed correctly , but from the door sill to the top of the door on the latch side was really interfering with the door . What had happened was the rubber seal was bunching up between the door and the body. The normal gap for the seal was 1/4 inch when compressed , but my door seal was 1/2 inch when compressed. See photos of what I'm talking about . The seal should have been designed to normally push down under the door . Instead the seal I had was normally facing up and being compressed between the door/panel and the seal attach point. This could have been just this seal or a seal that was from a different supplier. What I was told was that there are only 2 rubber suppliers that make door seals for Zcars. I can't verify this but who knows. I couldn't find the Aki door seal as mentioned in the previous text and if ordered it would cost over $100. So looking on Amazon I found a wealth of door seal possibilities. The seal I ordered from Amazon is near perfect , seals the door to the body, and looks good. I think time will tell if the seal takes a set and remains sealed. One thing I did find was that a seal should only be compressed 25% of its original diameter to make a good seal. Any more than that and the seal will deform / compress and not seal properly. One other piece of note worthy advice is those who have a Zcar shop do ANY work for you should make 2 appearances per week at the shop unannounced to check the progress on your car. I trusted the guy that owned the shop I used and have regretted it to this day. I can't believe one shop could make the number errors that were made on my car if they tried that hard. This was only one the 47 other problems I have had to correct. And this was a shop chosen by Nissan for the vintage Zcar rebuild program. Hope this helps someone who is having the same problem. Ron
  7. Thanks for the input . I will investigate and let you know what I find. Ron
  8. Does anyone have a good supplier for 280z door seals. The one I need is the one that crimps on body around the door opening. I've heard Kia Sportage is very close to the OEM Datsun seal, but don't know the year of sportage. Thanks...Ron
  9. View Advert 280z mechanical clock For sale is a nice 280z mechanical clock . This clock was working when I received it and has been keeping decent time for the last month. The plating on the housing is very good, I polish the lens, and re-blacked the set knob/mounting bracket. The clock number plate is for a 75/76 280z , but I will change it for a 77/78 280z. Actually the only difference between the years was the number plate. Price is $145 + shipping. Thanks for looking Ron Advertiser zclocks Date 04/12/2019 Price $145.00 Category Parts for Sale

  23. Hey Captain, The best option is if you can find a plating shop within driving distance. I 've tried many plating shops over the years and find that you should look for a shop that has been in business for many years. Most plating process are not difficult , but consistency is usually the problem. I have a place in CA, Van Nuys Plating, that does my plating and they do it all, are second generation platers, ,and at a reasonable cost. Call and talk to Linda at Van Nuys Plating vannuysplating.com . Check out their web site. Ron
