    Picking the 260 apart. Once I work out what I'll use, I'll put up what I don't need.

    Cheers Gav. It's down to a bare shell now. I'll work out what I need and let you know.

    So I picked this up the other week. Not a lot left but a few usable parts. Lot's of rust but really nice, un-butchered transmission tunnel (unlike mine). I'm stripping it at the moment and then cutting the rest up. Roof is pretty good and if there's any other cuts or parts anyone is interested in, let me know.

    I've been working on my 1600's so haven't made a lot of progress on the Z but here's a few things I've done. S13 booster, 15/16th master: Patch for the notch taken out of the rail by the previous owner: Then I had another right place at the right time moment. I found a couple of old school lockers on stalkbook and when I went to pick them up the lady was clearing out her dad's garage. I resisted the urge to look at any other stuff she had as I already have enough crap in my shed. Anyway, she had to go inside to get me some change for the lockers so I couldn't resist asking if I could have a quick look around. I go to the first box on the ground and here is a washer bottle with "Kanto Seiki" on it. Being new to the Z game I thought it may be Datsun but could be from any Jap car. I asked if her dad ever had a Datsun to which she said no and there were no other Jap parts in the Garage. So I get in the car and get on the googles for "Kanto Seiki washer bottle" and I'm like, you have got to be kidding me. On the way home I'm thinking there might be a washer bottle in the bulk parts lot I got and sure enough.... So then I'm like, ok, so which is the 240 one? I try to fit the big one I already had but with the S13 booster, no good. Small one I just found, sweeet!

    It's 2mm aluminium drilled with a hole saw and then a dimple die in a shop press.

    Knocked up a bit of a movable shelf to get the Z parts a bit more organised and off the floor and moved one of my 1600 shells out for a bit more room. I think my daughter is liking the Z more than the 1600s. Going to make a couple of aluminium removable panels to cover the hacking. I'll be keeping the luggage strap mounting holes and drilling through the aluminium to attach the strap mounts. I might end up hiding 6x9s under the panels. I'll probably do nutserts with stainless button heads.

    Chasing Parts For Hs30-00127

    Handy to know that 510 door striker plates are the same as 240Z. I wonder what else I'll be swiping from my plated parts stash.

    Chasing Parts For Hs30-00127

    So I managed to score a fair few parts for my Z shell over the weekend but thought I'd put up a list of what I'm still chasing. First off is a steering column or parts of, to finish off what I've got. I was having a play around with a 510 column shaft which fits but has a splined uni-joint rather than a two bolt flange. So here's what I have: With the 510 column and shaft: ...and then the rest..... Bonnet latch (got the base plate and catch) Bonnet badge Quarter badges Doors, door glass and regulators (got frames, cards, handles, locks etc) Lower door hinges (got good uppers) Gutter mouldings Hatch and glass (got mounting hardware and rubbers) Complete pedal box Heater box Centre console Passenger seat Drivers seat adjuster handle Rear sway bar brackets Horn pad Any leads or advice on what others have used would be much appreciated e.g. anyone using Alpha doors or hatch? Cheers!

    It was a bit like the shell, right place at the right time. I've had a few of those over the years with Datsun stuff. All these parts came from the one guy who had no connection to my shell but would be pretty cool if some of these parts were off mine. The bonnet and guards are just red primer but there are a few parts that came off a red car.

    So this shell project has gathered a bit of momentum: Also picked up an RD28 Patrol sump so I'll start test fitting for mounts etc. RB25, RB30, RD28:

    I had a crane mounted engine stand that I have now modified and put castors on to free up a bit of room. Got the RB30 block on there to start having a play. RB25DE piston on the left vs RB30 piston. The brake and clutch puzzle coming together.
  15. Interested in the transmission tunnel. Here's mine: and bonnet hinges.
