    Repairing Bumpy Surface Finish?

    Body filler weighs next to nothing. I like to use 3M platinum body filler. Easy to sand.

    Stagea owners here?

    Gav i had a series 2 260rs for over a year. Great car. But you really have to ring out the motor to get up to speed. Handling was very soft until i got coilovers. Not much slower than my r32 gtr it replaced. But it does feel big. I had 280awkws with just a bar of boost, exhaust, 550cc injectors and tomei drop in Poncams. Was very versatile and luggage capacity was like a van.

    Full vs club rego

    There are a heap of clubs that will provide the necessary forms and paperwork for around a once off $50 and yearly membership cost, without you actually having to attend to meetings or event. I done just that after google searching club permit victoria.

    soldering starter brushes

    Why? I bought a 280zx reduction gear starter motor off ebay for $150. One of the best upgrades i've done. Starts easier and is quiet in operation and half the weight.

    Wtb: 240Z ext door handle

    Both drivers and passenger handles are the same as are 260z handles. You just swap over the plastic bushing to the other side

    The Build 73 240Z

    The vinyl paint works well and does not go sticky overtime. I used a stain black vinyl dye to touch up my dash and console and it blends in well with stock finish of the dash.

    The Build 73 240Z

    I'd sell your Dash for around $500 or swap it and then reskin a cracked one as you get charged $650 regardless by the dash dr for a good or bad one.

    Diagnose dead battery or power leak?

    Loose negative earth leave. taking a lot of current to crank over and draining the battery. Check to see if its bolted tight to the bell housing or block.
