Project: Factory Fresh

Recommended Posts

So one of my customers purchased this very original '72 240Z a number of months ago, with a view to investing in it's originality.
It's a lovely original matching numbers car with history.
901 Silver with red(!) interior car, that has been converted by Les Collins from Auto to Manual.

The original bonnet had been damaged - presumably in an accident - and as typical, had been poorly repaired, with copious amounts of filler...
My brief from the owner was simply to purchase, fit and respray a new bonnet, as well as realign the rear bumper, and fit better seats that the owner has supplied.

So once in the shop, the rear bumper was realigned, and the new bonnet was gapped and fitted, but before the seats were fitted I delivered it down to my spray painter for him to paint the bonnet.

That's when the scope of the project changed...

Hi

Is that the all muscle parts bonnet? looks like a good fit for a repro

Any problem when fitting

Appreciate any feed back

Fitted perfectly.
Just needed the flanges on the inside tweaked to clear the guards.

Bumpers... Not so much...
