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.

Yah, that's why I didn't bother answering... you don't need to do anything extra..just remove the parts and re-install the filter! Doesn't matter now!

Hi,

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.

Cheers

John

Battery area looks real clean there which is a huge bonus. Another option with the roof dilemma would be to just butt weld in another piece of sheet metal; save yourself a heap of time looking for a donor roof. Are you going to repaint in the original bronze?

The reality of old zed cars and the numbers of them being parted out are even making the 2+2 dry up quickly, the overall number of Zeds in Australia as compared to many other classics are now very low IMO.
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.

Pleasure,

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

Cheers

Hey loui, Looking great mate. I have the 280zx struts, hubs and brakes sitting here when ever you need them. I'm happy to store them at my place. Actually they are still on the shell. haha. I'll need a bit of time to strip them for you. Depends on if I'm up here in QLD at work or at home on break. ;) I do have a set that is striped already but not in the best condition. Let me know what you want to do.
