    Wtb: 240Z interior panel that cover tail lights

    Unfortunately holes for speakers have been cut into the side panels and there is some other damage : https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bowral/other-automotive/datsun-240z-interior-plastic-trims-180/1201657082

    Tight Bleeder Nipple

    Another option if you have to replace the brake hoses and you find the nuts seized and heat / WD40 etc does not help (and assuming you can get access) you can use an angle grinder to cut off the brake hose fitting in a way that you do not damage the nut or the brake line flare. You need to use the thinnest steel grinding/cutting disk you can find and then start your cut just behind the hex head of the brake line hose (shown in photo below). Work your way down and around the fitting carefully and you should be able to save the brake line nut and flare.

    Seals Under Front Fenders

    Yes, unfortunately the designers left a gap at the top (between the fender and body & splash shield) and the small "mud" flap at the bottom may not remain fully sealed either over time. Both these gaps will allow accumulation of dirt etc behind the splash guard.

    Seals Under Front Fenders

    I ended up using a D-Section seal from Clark Rubber for the splash guard to fender seal and fender to body seals. As mentioned on the older posts the other EPDM rubber extrusions should be suitable the choice of which one may depend on what gap you have.

    The Global Z-car (S30/S130) Market Thread.

    From memory they quoted the car had the original factory markings however it seems as part of the restoration they "lost" these and then recreated the factory paint markings - how "correct" is doing that?
  7. Maybe you could look at sourcing the replicas of these if enough people show an interest?
  8. K&N Filters : $91.96 each (after discount) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/K-N-Custom-Racing-Air-Filter-56-1350/162420526505?hash=item25d1048da9:g:SLwAAOSwLjRa9LOt:rk:1:pf:0
  9. Did not know that. Have you tried this company/brand: http://www.dixcelaustralia.com.au/search Eeeek - maybe not I just saw their pricing!
  10. How much different are the 260z rotors? The diameter seems the same : https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nissan-260Z-S30-1973-1978-FRONT-Disc-brake-Rotors-RDA325-PAIR/400685178545?hash=item5d4ab29eb1:g:~OcAAOSwWHBZ-~vn:rk:4:pf:0

    I think this a video of the rebuild :

    Maybe when the bonnet was up it got caught in a big gust of wind - this can throw out the alignment.
  14. I'm interested to know (other than the extra pearl) what colour formula you used to reproduce the 303 colour? I have seen reference to PPG code 44968 and also a Glasurit Line 55.
  15. This looks to be the 303 emerald green metallic : https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/Datsun-260Z-1975/OAG-AD-15957221/?Cr=6
