    Bilstein Shock Inserts

    I bought Koni Yellows from S W Motorpsort and they were $550 a pair. I section my struts about 30 mm and put shorter MR2 inserts in the front (very tight fit in the tube, but they do fit). In the rear I put 240Z front struts.

    #741 is back on the road

    Thanks guys. I'm looking forward to the driving and tinkering. Jeff, don't feel bad, it has been the only thing I've been working on for 18 months. Also not being a restoration I didn't have to be make it completely original and so that made the assembly a bit easier . Greg

    #741 is back on the road

    and here's what I started with
  4. I've finally got my 240Z back on the road. Thanks to everyone who has helped me get there with advice and parts. It’s #741 and it was a bit of a project when I bought it in May 2017, basically a rolling body with some parts. I think it had been in the stripped state like I bought from probably the mid to late 1990s. The plan was to get it back on the road for weekend drives and do some club day racing. So the project was not restoration, but to fix it up and give it a bit more performance. Originally it was to be a twelve month build, but it took a bit longer. I didn’t get it in my garage until Sept 2017. And so the work really started in earnest then. The extra time was because things often take a bit longer than expected, and as the project progressed the list of performance mods expanded, which meant there was more fabrication needed. Chasing parts can also take a bit of time. Luckily, I was able to do all the work myself and so I only had the cost of parts that went into it. The body was very rusty and needed new floors and sills. All the front panels and doors should have also been replaced because of quite a bit of rust, but more because they were covered in dents. Unfortunately I was unable to find replacements and so they were just repaired to a reasonable state. Engine is Nissan RB25. Fabricated sump, engine and gearbox mounts. Koni golds and Coil overs for suspension. Skyline brakes with the larger 324mm rotors. It still needs some finishing off. The interior still needs some work. I’ve found getting original trim panels in Aus is quite hard. I’m hoping not to have to get the bits from the US. Quite pleased that I now have a car to drive.
  5. Hi, I'm after a pair of door panels for my 240Z. They need to be in good presentable condition without speaker holes, preferably black

    Door lock locks by itself

    Thanks. I'll have a look and see if the spring is there.

    Door lock locks by itself

    I've reassembled the doors on my 240 and have found that the button drops down by itself. So if I close the door it just locks. The doors were disassembled when I bought the car so I don't why it does this. Does anyone know what keeps the door lock knob up and prevents it dropping back down? Greg

    Still got my Vic20 in its original box. I upgraded to the Commodore 64 in the mid 80s and the Vic20 was never sold because it was already obsolete then.

    Thanks. I was a bit slow seeing it and they've sold. They condition was quiet average so not really what I'm looking for.
