    What is this from? heater tap?

    I have a feeling it's a 260z water tap, I have had it a couple of years and pretty sure it isn't for a 240z. Although looks cable operated. Anyone recognise it? Can't recall how I ended up with it now..

  6. Hi folks, I thought I better update this thread. I sent off a wish list to Crow in California and we missed chatting a couple of weeks back and I have been intending to follow up with him, I am hoping to this week. Just been distracted between site upgrades, working on my own car(s), my day job and sorting out some other imports for my own cars (mostly). I had 2 rear 1/4 panels come in recently and will need to collect them soon. Just sent payment off for a NOS rear 1/4 panel + a couple of other NOS panels I might use on my own cars. As for prices I'm waiting for Crow to come back to me with prices. I am thinking of collecting deposits for cost of panels from everyone in advance then when everything arrives, will send another bill to cover shipping + costs on my end etc..(this would be 2-3 months after so gives you some time to get money together etc.) So for now I will be able to give costs of panels and I'd recommend factoring in about 30% on top when it arrives here etc.. Giving an exact figure is going to be a challenge for a number of reasons. Exchange rate, quarantine unknowns on this end, final shipping to your location etc.. but will do my best to give a close estimate based on items I've done so far for myself.
  7. Thanks Peter, I was expecting to have to play with timing and the carbs to get it running, but to my surprise a bit of fuel in the chambers and bam she fired right up. I do think that speaking to the previous owner re: immobilizer helped because he told me you have to touch a certain wire to complete the circuit. Which I was not doing before, so I think might be why it didn't run. I think I'll remove the whole alarm system once it's back together and running correctly. Clearly there is still some fuel blockage or air pocket I need to sort, but before I do that I'll drain the old stuff out of the tank as it's gone quite a darkish yellow compared to fresh fuel which has a slight tint of yellow only. With regard to the plastics, the rear hatch struct bar seems to be in the way of getting that plastic in and I felt around and cannot see a way of removing it (the metal bracket), I suspect they were spot welded on the body. Anyway like I say I plan to replace it anyway. The interior will look 100x better with fresh plastics in the correct hue and I am hoping to be lucky enough to find a blue seat base for the driver side (maybe out of a North American HLS30 - which would be passenger side seat) since my passenger seat is actually in great shape. I'm really anxious to get down there again and complete putting the interior back together, get it running without stalling out and take it for a small drive to see how it goes. Last time I drove an auto S30Z was at least 15 years ago I'd say. I recall you saying something about being careful with the auto gearbox, remind me again what I should do to prevent damage to it when first putting it in gear?

    Might explain why Singers are so expensive, base 964's are costing a fortune.

    2 old workshops that were turned into town houses. https://www.realestate.com.au/sold/property-house-vic-bentleigh-125173298 https://www.realestate.com.au/property-townhouse-vic-bentleigh-126445974 I know the area well because when I first got my 73 240z back in the late 90s. I took my 240z to the workshop out the front (Beaurepairs) for some new tyres etc.. Anyway I went and had a look when I was in Melbourne over Christmas time (I recall it being very warm) and checked 1 of them out in person. https://photos.app.goo.gl/k6tYd0JYmHSWwQNW2 I love the look of the places and how they were converted, but they are asking too much $$$ for them. Considering they are really Townhouses and not individual plots of land with no real scope to increase their size and tiny yards with shared drive. Then I found this 1 in Ivanhoe and thought it could have similar potential but it was incredibly small..no room to put the cars (even if you built up 2 floors).. https://www.realestate.com.au/sold/property-house-vic-ivanhoe-127702994 and finally this 1 I'm still a bit bitter about. As I had the strongest $$$ offer on the place and got swindled out of it at the 11th hour and 55 mins to midnight. I believe they call it Gazumping - although it was more about contractual conditions than monetary offer being stronger from the other party. The agent sandbagged on deposit details so he could entice another offer into the ring. Some agents lie about everything, so when they do actually say something true you don't believe it, in my case I was told there was a second offer, which after all the other lies I didn't believe. So anyway... https://www.realestate.com.au/property/161-warren-rd-parkdale-vic-3195 Video here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q3ed3bqikIXqzbydK-jf9pffhbPnCh-VMA/view?usp=sharing But perhaps in future I'll be the 1 laughing? I saw it in person later and thought it's just a brick box.. My uncle is a bricklayer and my nephew is a chippie, so if I want to build something similar in future I probably could, for far less than than the asking price of that place.

    That first car looks like it's Dutton's Garage in Richmond, they had a C2 Corvette for $200k which seemed a little over valued compared to what I can find in the US. So I think they are charging a Premium.. This FD RX-7 just sold for $50k USD. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1993-mazda-rx-7-32/ Which is a lot when you consider that's Spirit R / Type RZ money.
