Just had a quick look at the specs (can't find brake clearance) but in the t disc (big brake) they come in 15x9 -15 and 15x10 -28 so that might be the safest bet

Rims and coil overs are still a fair bit off so I am sure I will get plenty of research done before I get them.
Hopefully arriving this week is the 280zx rear brakes, drivers front fender (I can finally mount the fender mirrors then) and NOS 2+2 center console.

He went through the zed and only tried stealing the rear dimister switch, also cut about 5cm of wire from the temp sensor in the skyline radiator because that was out of the car waiting to finish repairs.
He is known in the area and was already in the watch house for doing the same shit to another house about 2 hours after I chased him and made him drop all his shit (including his weed stash).
But anyway got an update from Jason at Klearz and hopefully my lenses should be able to be sent out in 2 weeks. Could have sent them all out on Monday but he is doing clear lenses for the interior dome light to which is a week off so I am waiting on that.
Here is the tail light lenses (upper lens is custom made as he only did the lower).
He could have done them smoked but I am going to smoke them myself using Crystalite.

Klearz and if anybody wants some reproduction lenses I recommend Jason to get the job done, he doesn't just do clear but smoked or OEM look as well. Also on the dome lens he does the milky white look as well but my original was all good so got a clear for something different.
Will hopefully be getting an L28 package in the new year even though I just picked up a reconditioned L26 block for a steal.
Also got an owners manual finally but it is 1 year off my zed but hey it's good enough.
I have some r31 skyline rear brakes to go on the car and will be looking for some bigger ones for the front shortly as well. No pictures of the brakes yet and will also be chasing a larger master cylinder.
Now some pictures.

lenses look good. Should point out that not all 2+2 had the air vents so does not mean they have been welded up. Series 2 (Oct 76 on I think) 2+2 didn't get them so installing them may not work. Hope this helps.

That's what made me think the holes has been welded. I could be wrong though as I am learning about the ins and outs of Zeds as I build this one.

Will get some photos together once I finish grabbing the last of the stuff from him in 2 weeks. I do have a couple of current orders I am expecting soon so will have some updates hopefully later in the week.

Smoked headlight covers (eBay)
Brand Spanking New 2+2 center console. (Warren at All Z Parts)
Finally fitted the fender mirrors that I got from Johnny (FairladyZ) as my second hand front fender came from Warren (All Z Parts) as well.
Now there is some more stuff sitting there that I will update later including the Air Con setup and also some stuff from Hayden which hopefully I can finish picking up stuff from him this weekend.

When I get these parts sent up I will update with pictures and hopefully would have made some more panel work progress so it can be a decent update.

I have already stripped the car as you can see from these photos here.
Rust hunting started on Friday and what better place to start than the sills and dog legs. The fact I could see bubbles also made me start there. The car was meant to be restored in the mid 90's (I do have a lot of receipts to help backup that claim) but whoever did it made it look great once painted but is giving me hell getting back to metal as there is bog rather thick in some areas. Luckily Scoota let me know about heating the bog with a gas torch for a few seconds and scrapping it off so that has saved me weeks
