Hi all,

 

Just thought I'd introduce myself.

 

I've recently bought myself a 1977 260z 2+2 with the plan to get it back on the road, and then a complete resto.

 

Its basically stock from all accounts with a bit of rust hear and there... i am sure there is plenty more that's not visible. It was purchased from a guy in Victoria and i don't have any history.

 

I am new to the word of 260z's but have always covetted the Z's and this is will be my first resto.

 

I am hoping to get it running...once I deal with the leaking rear carby.

 

From what i've read so far the forum is a wealth of knowledge.

 

Cheers!

Welcome! The best thing you can do after you get her running is learn to weld if you can't already! That will prevent you from worrying too much if you find rust!

Hope to hear more from you!

Welcome

Getting her running first is logical first step - and mechanically these are rather simple cars.
Is there much work required to get it roadworthy ?

Cheers

PB

PS : a few photos would be nice :)

Thanks for the welcome.

Needs a good going over, but hopefully not to much to do....Fluids, brakes, hoses ect

The Journey has only just begun and my challenge is that she is stored some 200km from home.

Hi Matt

Looks pretty good in those photos.
Stored 200ks from home - that will make it a challenge. Shed time is hard enough to find when the shed is your backyard.

Cheers

PB
