Wtb Datsun 240Z/260Z

Latest Posts - Sat, 09/06/2018 - 17:54

Gday,

 

Looking to buy a 240z or 260z 2 seater only.

Not looking for matching numbers, would even prefer a L28.

Not looking for a big project, would like to find something to drive now.

Budget of around $35k

I'm based in Adelaide and would be great if I can find one local as its hard for me to travel interstate.

 

I'm also considering importing one from Japan, if I cant find what I'm looking for in OZ.

Has anyone on here had much success in importing decent ones?

 

 

Regards

Col

Planned Upgrade Ver 3.x To 4.x

Latest Posts - Sat, 09/06/2018 - 17:52

Hey Folks,

Just a heads up that I plan to run an upgrade soon (doing backups etc..)

 

More details here.

 

https://invisioncommunity.com/4guides/welcome/install-and-upgrade-r259/?_fromLogin=1#testinstall

 

The only item most members need to worry about is this.

 

User / Display Names
Usernames and display names have been merged in Invision Community. As the administrator, you may select which to keep during the upgrade process. Please note that this field will be the publicly displayed field for the user. 

 

At the moment it's possible to use a login name but have a different display name on the forum.

 

For example I could have gavin as my login name but gav240z as my display name.

 

These will be merged going forward, meaning I'll need to pick 1 field to keep whilst the other is discarded. My inclination is to keep username and if folks wish to change it after the upgrade that's ok.

 

To be honest very few members use this ability (or probably know it exists), but in the interest of giving everyone time to adjust for this in advance I wanted to call this out.

 

Upgrade hiccups.

 

I am going to tackle this when I have spare time (which is never) and I am expecting to run into at least 1 or 2 snags along the way. The forum may be down longer than anticipated and when we recover the look and feel may have changed, I am contemplating retiring the homepage part of the site along with the articles (features and news sections). I do want to migrate that across to the new software so it's all housed under the same roof and that will allow me to open up home page publishing to other members of the group (useful for events etc..).

 

The other unknown is how older style URLs will be handled, as part of the migration to this software I was able to map back the old historical URLs to map and redirect to the newer style URLs. This meant no broken links when clicking through old threads. I wish to retain that if possible moving forward but will need to look into this.

 

Once everything is upgraded and working smoothly the next step in the process may be to move to cloud based hosting - which may bring down the costs of hosting significantly and allow for future scalability and less restrictions around image uploads etc.

 

I'll post more announcements closer to the date of this all happening. I'm in the process of finishing a large backup (multiple gigs of attachments etc..). Hopefully things will go better than planned and the upgrade will run smoothly with no problems.

The Build 73 240Z

Latest Posts - Sat, 09/06/2018 - 17:11
Hi Guys

Been wanting to get the build thread on the Z for a while now and finally the time has come.

Currently White 73 240z unfortunately Auto with a L24 engine. New plans are to strip the engine and the 3 speed out and slip in a L28 with a L28 5speed.

The flairs are definitely going to be taken off and if needed replace the inner and outer guards. Interior will get replaced with a new kit from the U S and A and I'm replacing the Recaro seats back to factory seats. I recently purchased some seat covers that will need to get put on the stock seats I have.

Colour I'm still not sure if I should stick to a off white or head down the 918 orange path. Both will look nice but I'm not 100% on this one. Attached Thumbnails

Springs And Maybe Shocks For '77 260Z

Classifieds - Sat, 09/06/2018 - 17:09

Hi Guys,

 

I'm looking for some springs and maybe shocks too for my '77 260z. Was just scouring eBay for some Kings lowered springs (KDFL-04 / KDRS-09) and thought maybe someone has them lying around?

 

Also looking for KYB's 361002 and 361003 which I'll most likely import from the US.

 

I'm open to other options/brands.

 

Cheers

Coil Springs For Sale/give Away.

I have three pairs of springs that came with my car.

One pair of King KDFL-04. These were on my car. Have gone for standard springs. We have tested these and they are 170 lb/inch with 280mm free length.

 

One pair of black springs. These are about 5mm bigger in overall diameter than the King springs. 170 lb/inch with 320 free length. One end on each look like it has been cut. I don't know what they are off.

 

One pair of red springs. Same od as the black ones listed above. 202 lb/inch with 300 mm free length. This pair also looks like they have been cut.

Once again no idea what they were on.

 

The standard spring locating plate that goes at the top fits these two mystery pairs of springs.

I would like $30 for the Kings and the other two are free if someone wants them.

I live near Newcastle NSW so there would be postage.

Vehicle Advisory Labels. New Vs Old.

Honestly, I just noticed this in the glove box of my 260z.

Imagine the uproar if that was in a new car ( referring to the bottom left speed indicator)... Lol Attached Thumbnails
