Hi everybody.

 

this is my 1972 Datsun 240z. Its relatively stock running a L28 with twin SU's. Rolling on Watababes 16x8 0 and 16x8.5 -6.

There isnt much planned at the moment in terms of performance other than a full exhaust system. Possibly going injected carbs with mild cams and small head work done as well. But thats when i have more money saved up.

 

i do post pictures on instagram (@randommmtine)

 

I dont know what what else to say.

 

I did happen to see a lot of Zeds last weekend at the Brisbane Samios C&C but didnt get to say hello.

 

Austin :)

I was there with the red flared one and saw your car there and wondered who's it was. Did you buy it with the Wats on it?

Hello Austin,

Nice looking car!

 

I noticed that the brake master cylinder reservoirs are in the wrong location.

Early 240Z's (1970 TO AUG 1971 - according to USA supplier http://www.new-datsu...rts-brakes.html) had a master cylinder that looked like this;

46010-e4602-240z-brake-master-cylinder.j

 

And later cars were fitted with this type;

Note that in both cases, the larger reservoir is for the front brakes.
