  1. I have a Fiberglass (recently just sold the urethane one before installing it) Type 1 airdam for my 280z. Of course, it did not come with any hardware. Just looking at it, it seems like I'll need 6 bolts, 6 nuts, and 12 washers. What size bolts did you guys use for hardware? Anyone remember? And I'm assuming I should use stainless?
  2. I have seen that people put some kind of bracing behind their urethane air dams on their cars so that they don't flex at high speeds, often for pretty cheap. Anyone have any pics of what this looks like? I am not sure how to start or where to attach it to. I could figure it out from a pic of the setup.
  3. Hey everyone I have a quick question as to which radiator I should get. I just went in to have my tires changed and long story short my radiator got damaged and they are going to get me a new one. They quoted me a new radiator at 500$ so I started looking around. I saw 3 different radiators. The first I saw was the Champion radiator. It's a 3 core polished aluminum radiator for 280$, its core is 16 1/8" tall and 24 1/2" wide and its overall dimensions are 23" tall and 26 3/4" wide. (Unknown weight) The next was from ZCarSource, it was also a aluminum 3 core. The website didn't specify any specs so when I called and asked about it they said it was 30" tall and 40" wide(I assume that's overall) at 20lbs, this one costs 480$. The last radiator is from MSA and is also a aluminum 3 core radiator. Its core is 16.5" tall and 23.75" wide and overall 23" tall and 26 3/4" wide at 11.4lbs. It is currently out of stock though. I searched around and saw folks liked the MSA radiator, but overall thought a upgraded radiator wasn't needed, seeing as it's of no exspense to me I might as well get whichever is best so I'd appreciate your input. So of these radiators, or other ones, which would you guys recommend? Thanks Noah M
  4. Hey all, I'm once again thinking about exhaust, and I need some info from someone who has the MSA Premium flanged exhaust. I need the length of the longer straight section of the center pipe. Can anyone help me with this?

    Carpet kit

    A few weeks ago I purchased a sewn-molded carpet kit from MSA, but several of the pieces did not fit and a few were actually shipped by the manufacturer as uncut, un-sewn, and un-bound flat pieces of carpet. Communication with MSA has been, ummm, slow, and after two weeks of emails and phone calls I'm not getting much traction. Does anyone have a better source for these? I'd prefer not to keep experimenting $300 at a time.
  6. I recently bought these: Motorsport! Bullet II Chrome Mirror - The Z Store! Nissan-Datsun 240Z-260Z-280Z-280ZX-300ZX(Z31/Z32)-350Z-370Z Parts I searched the forum and its difficult to find pictures with these on fenders. Has anyone used these as fender mirrors? If so, pics? Your take on these as fender mirrors. Short stem I know, but I want to know if this is at least an OK mod to do.
  7. Since I'm buying so many little goodies from MSA during my refresh, I thought I'd start a thread to provide reviews on them. Feel free to contribute your own parts reviews. Here's mine so far. I have other parts, but can't comment on them yet. All of my parts are for a 1973 240Z. Of note, I can't believe how many of them were actual Nissan parts. 1) Bullet II Mirrors - very high quality, made of metal. The tension on the swivel mechanism is adjustable, so you can tighten them up if they get loose. They are fairly small diameter, so you'll want to carefully mount them for the best view, as the field of vision is smaller than normal. They look great, though. 2) MSA racing style mirrors - These are plastic, and the tension isn't adjustable. They'll end up flopping around when you close the door, or at least that's what happened to the old ones the PO put on my car. 3) Engine inspection light - I was expecting a repro, but its a real Nissan part. 4) Inner shift boot - this isn't on their website, but they have it if you call. Its a real Nissan part. It only cost me $17.55, which is so much cheaper than other online sellers. 5) Wooden shift knob - again not on their website, but they have it, and its a real Nissan part. Was only $53. 6) Threshold plate - a real Nissan part. These are very flimsy things, and mine got scuffed and bent upon shipping. I may be able to buff and straighten them quicker than sending them back for a replacement, though. 7) Carb float gaskets - seems fine, made of cork. Stopped the smelly fuel leak I was getting from the rear carb under hard cornering, acceleration or driving the car up a steep incline. 8) Rear quarter panels - these are made by Tabco, which also sells to Blackdragon. My body man didn't like them at all. He used them, and made them fit, but they were not exact replicas. The resulting work looks fine, but has more filler in it than he'd like. Two noticeable differences were where the dog leg wraps into the door frame the tabs weren't right, and they don't have any indentation underneath the ends of the rear bumper. He just cut them before those problems, as the old panels were ok on the both the front and back edges at those problem areas. Parts I haven't installed yet include: Weatherstrip kit, carb air horns, seatbelts, alternator upgrade, and the headlight relay upgrade (made by one of our club members). Will update this thread with a review of those as I get them done. I'm still waiting on my interior leather and vinyl upholstery from Les at Classicdatsun. Wish list items that I'll eventually buy include new wheels/tires and some rear deck carpet. I think I'll go with Konig Rewinds, although those seem common on 240Zs today. I could use suggestions on carpet and alternative wheel suggestions. I'm not a fan of slot wheels... Don't forget that club members get 10% off at MSA.
