    Rubber seals

    Vintage Rubber, although somewhat pricey, does have some replacement rubbers that others do not. They are a good source for door seals, especially if you need only 1 side. Your "mileage may vary" but many have expressed satisfaction with their products. I found replacement rubber for the 73 240z over-rider bumperettes there--the only source I know of for new.
  4. @Wolnomularz Here's a link to a set of rear control bushings if you need them as well----new and genuine Nissan replacements https://www.ebay.com/itm/GENUINE-DATSUN-240Z-260Z-280Z-REAR-CONTROL-ARM-TRANSVERSE-LINK-BUSHING-KIT-OEM/182821241949?fits=Model%3A240Z&hash=item2a90fec45d:g:4loAAOSwCmNZ3PTe&vxp=mtr

    240Z Stains in White Vinyl

    +1 on the Bleche-White It may not get your particular stains out, but it sure makes a whitewall tire white again! I've used it and it works.

    We're bringin' back the Flat Tops!

    There's also what could be considered a middle series if you follow the 73/74 Fuel System Modifications Plus TSB. It's mostly internal though, so you couldn't tell just by looking.

    We're bringin' back the Flat Tops!

    @jayhawk Welcome back! Happy for you for hanging on to your Z--especially an original owner Z! No shame in it sitting---lots of that happened. Events in life have caused a good many to fall into dis-repair. There's a story to be told in each instance. I remember your posts from quite a few years ago and realized back then that you had a 73 with flat tops. I had wondered several times in reading those posts what had happened to you and the Z. You were one of the few that retained the flat tops, although it looks from the photos above as though eventually you swapped to round tops. You will be thrilled to see your Z returned to former beauty and Rich is certainly the man for the task at hand. @motorman7 Creative spring solution for the round tops----spring not long enough---add another! For me, that's the first time that I have ever seen the original air pump and the air conditioning compressor co-existing on the drivers side of the block. I'll be interested in seeing how those were both mounted. What is the Vin # and build date of this blue on white Z? Mine is #167424 fairly late build date of 6/73---wondering how close a sibling this is.

    OK you're on! At first glance about 8, but I know how crafty you can be so there may be many more hidden in there. There's some more of that "flat top" love I'm talkin up. Is this Gary's Z?? Are @motorman7, you and me the only inhabitants of this fourth dimension??
  9. Advice from a good friend (S30driver) who knows-- Front 7" wheel with 0 to +4 offset 205/55/16 Rear Same as front but up to 8" fits, but will be staggered fitment.

    Holy Moly!! 73 skidoo! Whoo Hoo!! Bring it on Rich! I'm all eyes and ears on following THIS restoration----I am admittedly biased, but truly do believe that the 73 240z is THE most difficult of the Z cars to restore to originality. Parts are difficult to find that are specific to them, and they are numerous. You know, as you've had one in the not so distant past. Looking forward to some of that "flat top love" that is pretty darn scarce in the Z world. Let me know if there is any way I can help. The owner is so lucky to have found and employed you to do it!

    Till death do us Datsun

    @Lumens Courtney Cutchen (from the Hagerty article above) is a member on this forum. She and I exchanged several PM regarding her need for carb linkage parts for her Z a year or so ago. Nice article, and yes she is a real nice lady with a passion for Z cars. Dustin is a lucky fellow indeed.

    240Z Vintage Rubber Floor Mats AMCO

    Let me know if the forum member with the set for scanning doesn't work out. I have 2 sets---one in black that is cracked, but new and complete, and one in brown that is NOS (and perfect). If it turns out that you need a set for the scanning let me know. I would like to have 2 new sets in black. Thanks for taking this project on! I hope it works out well for all concerned.

    IF they are exact reproductions of the originals you depicted in your photo above, count me in for 1, and possibly 2, sets.

    Series 1 emblems

    Pretty sure the right emblem with the solid "Z" is from an fairly early car. Not sure of the change date. The emblem on the left came later---in line with your 5xxx production car The very earliest "B" pillar emblems were cast with solid backsides and a solid Z. @Mike B would be able to answer with authority, as he has examples of both if not all variants
