    Some more cool Z videos - youtube.com

    Maybe when the bonnet was up it got caught in a big gust of wind - this can throw out the alignment.
  2. 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.
  3. This looks to be the 303 emerald green metallic : https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/Datsun-260Z-1975/OAG-AD-15957221/?Cr=6

    I like the gearbox oil filler next to the gearstick - as long as you are careful not to spill any!

    Keep an eye on this seller on ebay, the shipping cost may drop to about US$40 : https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Xenon-3124-Air-Dam-/401298880085?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c1#viTabs_0

    Ab's Uncut Emerald - '74 260Z

    Been a while but back at it last month. Having seen the condition of the front ball joints and the steering rod ball joints decided to take it all off. Moved onto the ball joints which were just as bad No rubber left on any of the ball joints - so all are in the process of being replaced. I did find that when removing one of the front steering knuckles from the strut that the 44mm o-ring was missing so something else to sort out. Having seen the accumulated oil/dirt in the transmission tunnel and at the front of the rear diff I knew the rear gearbox and front diff pinion oil seals were stuffed and so I had to drop out the rear suspension and diff to do a clean up and get better access to the diff. Diff out and underbody cleaned with Marine Clean and high pressure water spray. Seems the application of the underbody stone chip spray was somewhat haphazard?

    Where to buy new spindle pins

    Hmm, good to know if I get to the point of having to replace my spindle pin bushes and damage the pins getting them off. I know when I got a quote for the engine, gearbox and diff mounts it was still cheaper to get them from the USA (even with postage costs added).

    Where to buy new spindle pins

    Unfortunately it appears USA Z parts suppliers are probably the only option.

    The Build 73 240Z

    Yes you can buy from PPCCo who are in Aust, or via their ebay store or you may find Eastwood products at some paint shops. I sourced some of mine from PPCCo and some I ordered via my closest paint shop in regional Victoria who had some Eastwood products but not all.
