    Thanks Gav. Here I was thinking it was the people at Harman playing with my meta data on their big computer. Silly me. Jeff

    Home Built Z 'full Video Build'

    For what it’s worth. I think the process of wrapping the Datsun plastic component is a good one as the added material gives the old bits much needed strength and durability and will probably allow them to be removed and cleaned without complete failure in the future. We use a aluminium foil tape at work that is about 0.1 mm thick and very workable. I’m planing on putting a strip or layer of this on the back side of some of the panes to give more strength and some insulation factor. Yep 100%. You are a wise man Peter. Jeff

    Home Built Z 'full Video Build'

    Thanks Jeff There are quite a few options for the Alcantara “copy” product. I was looking at the Auto Suede brand and was wondering what one you decided to use. I assume they are all very similar? I’ll look up Daleys and check them out. I have also been looking at getting a few things flocked. We have used Napean Flock a few times for dashboards in race and rally cars, with pleasing results. Jeff

    I do like the Alcantar, I’m planing a simmilar approach to what you have taken. The dark grey (it looks to be charcoal?) blue colour combo will be very posh. Did you get the fabric from fabtex? eBay? If you mention this in the video I missed it, sorry. The alternative product you are using is it “Auto Suede”? Jeff

    Seals Under Front Fenders

    Thanks Andy and Dave I am going to install the shields as I’m sure their prime function is to stop road pickup from damaging the actual fender section behind. I have made some new v shaped lower rubber flaps for the bottom of the shield and after this I think I’ll look at making something for the top. My shell had a lot of corrosion along the top of the upper rail from wet build up and water logging as the drain holes were blocked. I was thinking about setting all of this up so it’s not to hard to remove the fender every now and then to give it a good clean and a check. Ill keep you posted with what I do. Jeff

    Seals Under Front Fenders

    I have been doing some research while I’m recovering from knee replacements for the jobs I have on my list that I can do during the upcoming 8 week of light duties at home. The purchase, manufacturer and installation of the foam and rubber strips in this section of the car. My current plan is to use an armerflex product that is used in the refrigeration industry. It’s basically a closed cell foam tape with adhesive on one side. It’s durable and should replace both the horizontal strips on the splash shield, the strip on the inner fender splash shield and the stops (spacers) on the top of the body under the fender. I found this thread with lots of good information and as quite a few is us are at a similar build stage thoughts it was worth asking what you are all planning on doing? Jeff

    Jeff's 240z build

    Very stop start on the Z over the last few months. The pergola is finished, painted roof and plumbing all finished. Boss is happy so that’s a thumbs up and I have a good supply of brownie points in the bank. I have been all over the place with work. 5 Days in Adelaide then almost a week in Perth and finally 3 days in Sydney all in the last three weeks. This weekend was been dedicated to getting the Z to a point that it can be put under a cover for a spell and pushed to one side in the shed while I get some new suspension fitted (to me). Into hospital tomorrow for some knew knees so it will be small jobs, and I have quite a few of them over the next 6 to 8 weeks. Disappointingly that means I’m missing rally Australia this year. But I did have some parts arrive from Japan with all of the spare parts for the rally car. Opened the box and the boys sent out a set of front breaks MK86 breaks (vented). Gee they look nice. Jeff

  15. Welcome Jon. Good to see another Canberra car. We should all get together one day. You will get a good job from Locky and Les. If Locky isn’t happy with the work, at least it will make for some entertaining posts while he berates himself..... Jeff
