    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.
  11. Interested in the transmission tunnel. Here's mine: and bonnet hinges.

    I've got the four valves per cylinder and two cams. Now for the three carbs..........

    I don't have guards yet but at least I now have mounting holes. All four were snapped. Didn't take long to strip what was left on the shell. Not much to work with. Crossmember already had the mounts removed when I got it so I'm going to play around with some 510 mounts (because I had them). Should be able to find something in this lot. Probably going to run a 3.9 R200 LSD. Here's the setup in my 1600, 3.7 long nose R200, S15 helical centre, stub axles and inner cvs, Z31 turbo 5 stud axles, companion flanges and outer cvs with custom half shafts. Picking up some RB25DE stuff tomorrow (head, gearbox, pistons etc) and an RD28 sump so I'll be starting to fit all that up soon. I've also got a pair of hub spacers on the way to run Z31 rotors with the Hilux callipers.

    Yep, I thought the same when I saw them. The Guy said his missus told him to do it. Under the thumb me thinks.

    Starting to straighten out a few areas whilst I source parts. I'll be holding on to the stock brakes if I ever go back to original but I'll be putting on R31 rears which I had on my 1600 and also some S12W callipers I picked up for $60 (no idea why they are pink).
