Once the car was striped down and all hinged doors , bonnets and flaps removed it was time to focus on the body work. the floors needed to be replaced. All the lower sections on the doors and front and rear guards needed some attention. The spare wheel carrier was stuffed and the bottom section on the hatch was shoot. So all in all , your standard zed rust..
The first section was the sun roof. It had to go. I managed to get hold of a 2+2 for a spare parts car that would be use so many times I couldn't believe how much I needed all the little things the could not be used on the 240z.
I pulled out the sun roof and traced it onto the 2+2. Cut it out and fitted it to the 240. Tacked it, braced it from the inside to keep the shape, then fully welded it being careful not to get to much heat into the metal. I used a 3mm aluminium sheet under the sunroof patch and supported it with timber props them welded it.
