    Drive days are back, if anyone turns up.

    Hi Gordo, I'm 90%! Barring any late calls to work

    Couldn't you just cut down an existing K&N or some other panel filter? I just changed a filter from a CR-V which is a big larger, however trimming wouldn't be an issue
  3. Anyone in the market for some TOPYs? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Datsun-240z-Topy-Wheels-260z-Fairlady-X5/163484900240?hash=item2610759b90:g:wHgAAOSwJvVcOxkD:rk:1:pf:1

    Thanks for sharing Gordo! Seems like something to put on the bucket list. What were the trophy's for?

    What Did You Do On Your Z Today?

    I hadn't driven the Z in a couple of months due to waiting for club rego paperwork. It wouldn't kick to life, normally it starts quite easily. Fuel was getting through pump, etc so decided to clean fuel bowls. Surely enough, fuel had dried up and turned to crud. Interestingly enough, one of the bowls still had what looked to be like the original copper (or some sort of metal) float. Started without an issue after a good clean.

    Gav, that came up a treat. What paint and colour did you use?

    Great progress and love the shed. How did you punch the holes in the storage bin area? Some sort of press? How thick is the metal you have used? cheers

    In Car Audio

    Hi PB, good option. We use 1 in the footwell of the passenger seat. I find the music resonates well from there. Easy and full selection of music. I am currently using a Bose unit, however I have used others and they're just as good

    Good job, seats came up nice
  13. What's everyone's thoughts on preventing rush on the brake disc hub. Understand you can spray/paint the hub with VHT or alike, I was thinking of just smearing some copper grease that doesn't melt/run onto the rear of the wheel where it makes contact with the hub. Does anyone think this would be dangerous?

    I also came across this indicator stalk in a box of spares which is slightly different to the early 240 one. It has the additional 'push' button. Is this a 260 part? What does the push button do?

    What Did You Do On Your Z Today?

    So, I finally went out to the Feb Yarra valley chrome bumpers meet, almost solely to see KATOKIDS car and it was glorious! Only issue was my left inicator stopped working on the way there. Yesterday, I removed the unit, cleaned and put back on and still couldn't get it to work reliably. I decided to desemble where the contact point at; solder some new points on and slightly stretch the spring. I also regreased certain parts. it worked a treat and now the indicator stalk is changing smoother than it ever had
