    What Did You Do On Your Z Today?

    Replaced the heater control and fast idle vacuum lines yesterday and did an oil change this afternoon, finally settled into the new house enough to sneak some Datsun time in. I might fit my Xenon front spoiler next, then send it off for paint. Body colour or black though? I'm leaning towards body colour and keeping the bumper chrome.

    Original Tyre Bridgestone Or Dunlop?

    Mines a very tired looking Bridgestone 195 on a factory alloy wheel. That explains why the wheel cover sits a bit high. I was given the 4 original alloys with centre caps when I bought the car too.

    Thanks Rob, the PO had a respray done and so have I (insurance claim). This is the original colour but it might be slightly off if it was colour matched and not mixed up to the original paint code. To be honest I never thought to ask!

    Just before we moved, photo by the real estate agents. 6x7m but never enough room!
  6. I was too scared to reverse park that close to KatoKid! I didn't spot the 4th Z actually?
  7. Good little cruise, we need to do this more often.
  8. I reckon I'd be up for that, might have a buddy along with me too.

    Thanks again guys, I'm really happy with how these came up. The finish seems nice and durable too. And on the doors

    Vinyl Dye Products For Armrests

    Ok, so I spent a considerable amount of time cleaning them up with plastic and metal scotch brite pads, detergent and plenty of wax and grease remover. VHT was applied as two light coats and a third medium coat, 10 minutes apart as per the instructions on the can. Coverage even after the first coat was excellent, full cure is after 7 days. I'll check back in then with some pictures. Cheers guys!

    Door Window Weather Strips

    I got a set from Rare Spares and although they're a little bit wider than the original ones they're settling in well. I used a couple of different sized flat screwdrivers to slowly open up each staple and the old strip as a template. You can reuse the original staples if they're still in decent condition too. It's a fiddly process but you'll get there, takes about an hour per side.

    Vinyl Dye Products For Armrests

    Cheers guys, I grabbed a bit of VHT vinyl dye and some wax and grease remover. Autobarn didn't have any other options, I'll report back in a week or so. Fingers crossed it's a tough product.

    What Did You Do On Your Z Today?

    Started putting some of my interior back in, haven't had much time to work on the car lately as we've moved into a new place and been busy with boring furniture and painting tasks! I had these pillars wrapped in black leather last year. Decided to use black flanged button head socket drive 5mm bolts throughout the interior, rather than plastic clips. Black rubber washers will be used on the plastic trims for a bit of protection against cracking/rattling.

    Hello, Newbie!

    Welcome Joel, good luck with the reassembly! I'm at the tail end of a complete interior overhaul too.
