Hi every one. Im back with another 240z. This one is a beauty! Minimal rust every were except a bit in the floor. Its been inna shed for close to 20 years under a big old tarp. It got pulled out 10 years ago and pulled apart then stored again because of the previous owners wife haveing a bad car accident.
Any ways.. im the lucky one that the guy decided to reluctantly sell it too.
Ill keep you all updated as we go. Heres some pics of the z and were it was stored

Nice find, let me know what the chassis no. is so I can add it to the collection. The other parts you got, were those cars scrapped?

Hey drifta, I sent you a PM earlier (when I posted in this thread), asking about a few parts that I needed, the main being a hatch.

So I guess what I'm saying is, let me know when you're ready to sell the hatch, I'd love to buy it.

Cheers,
Rick

Interesting hatch repair method, did you get much distortion doing it that way? I'm guessing it needed a skim of filler?

No distortion as the lip was double skinned and tacked on first. Then the top skin was tacked on at random points to minimize the heat. And yes.. and weld/patch work need a layer of filler... ideally id buy a brand new hatch.. but cant find them. Also would buy new doors and new gaurds.. but cant find them/get them in Australia unfortunately. In trying to organised heaps for parts from the usa in container.
