Just noticed you still have that 280ZX oil filter adapter thingy installed.. You can remove it if you want..it's only there to clear the steering components on a 280ZX.
Yeah i was going to question what was going on with that oil filter angle..

have basically stripped the car (engine and box needs to be removed and cleaned cleaned up a bit to start the rust repairs, as you can see dont have to much rust BUT in desperate need of a roof skin
any comments appreciated

Welcome to the "Ship of the damned" seems there are a few of us doing these restorations.
Looking at your roof problem, might be worth while looking at a 2+2 doner roof, unplucking the skin carefully and then getting a good beater to trim away the excess sheet metal.
Think you will find that apart from the additional length, the overall front screen area, and left and right hand gutters will be the same up until about 80% back from the front front pillars, and good beater should be able to rework the rear 1/4 join areas. I say this as there are a lot of 2+2's out there being parted out but no 2 seaters.
Otherwise you could have it section joined at the rear cut line of the sunroof in the current car, done slowly and carefully you can achieve a great result.

Maybe that is why prices of these classics are slowly lifting and the basket cases are seriously for someone desperate to get a car as people are starting to hold them and restore or improve with modern enhancements and what better car to do exactly that with.....looks, handling, IRS, good bones to work with.

ela dimitri :the battery area is definately a bonus, colour combo will be Orange with gunmetal hightlights

But its going to be painstaking work unplucking it, make sure you tell us what your beater said about the graft.
