Hello All, Mart here,I bought a Datsun 280zx slick roof 2+2.. in or around september 2013.. It's a funny story, Always looking for a Datsun z or zx one day Bart (Yes, from bartscooterservice also here on the forum) told me there was a 280zx for sale in a town near his. These days i'm not working anymore because of a accident at work and a later flattening a motorbike against a tree.... But after Bart told me there was a 280zx i wondered if it was still that one i remembered from the '90's when i was at that Nissan sub-dealer for his burglar alarm inspections, i was a service engineer at that time.. It was a blue car put away in 1993-94, in a storage in the back of the garage! In 2013 the owner stil recognized me and confirmed me that it was stil the same car! It has 119000 Km on the clock and was not driven since 1994, The engine was started every year and that saved it.. After i saw in how good condition it was, (compared to a lot of terribly rusty rustbuckets) i bought the car! I went to pick up the car in January 2014 and did all the mechanical work in 2014 and 2015. Now the car is stil at my Painter who did/does al the welding also for me. At first he told me the car wil be ready in may but now he says June... Don't matter to me, only thing i care for that it is done the right way! Now i'm prepairing al the parts to put back on the car.. (Made hundreds of pictures..) I got a question: A Datsun 240z has a rubber part around his tailgate hinge, i found no rubber near those of the 280zx? Is there no rubber cover seal ? When the hinge is taken out there is a big hole in the roof edge, when cleaning i can imagine that there can get a lot of water into the roof causing a lot of trouble? If there is no rubber for the hinge, i think a peace of inner tubing of a bike can close it, putting it in between.. Like to here your solution! Pic.1 before restoring Pic. Pic.2 ready for paint. NOTICE: the stil perfect "welds" under the rear lights.. in europe these are always rusted away, here...stil perfect.. also the bottom of the car NO welding needed! Awesome!!
