  3. Yeah I noticed the same also, it seems to be like that from factory. You may be able to see it on my 71. Note how it just curves up close to the exhaust exit cut out? This car as far as I can tell has never had a hit in the rear, so appears to be the nature of the panel, probably because of the cut out, it offers a form of "relief" or slack.
  4. Are you going to hack the shell up into pieces or sell it whole?
  5. At least LS parts are good for something I suppose? Too soon? PS: Well done Gordo, it's really appreciated all the effort you put in.
  6. Decided I'd try the rear valance section from the UK supplier. indigo123music (UK) - Facebook Page (Auto Panel Solutions) Details in this thread. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/293257126777?ul_noapp=true Only problem is that the cost is 214 GBP before shipping, once shipping is factored in it will cost around $500 AUD by the time it gets here. I would have bought 2 but never really worth the effort bulk buying and it seems the extras I bring in end up benefiting someone else not me. :). Otherwise I'd have bothered to organise a group buy. Maybe someone else can if there is enough demand? But I also don't know just "how good" this panel will be yet till I have it on hand. So you can call me the guinea pig for this 1, and hopefully the community will benefit from my experience here? I think this section is a lot better made than the Canadian supplier piece which I struggled with, due to missing compound curves and the thickness of the material it was made from. Reason I bought this 1 is that it's closer to OEM than the Canadian section (muffler cut out in particular) and the piece I fabricated which I was gonna struggle to get the rear bumper reliefs right in. Since this section is nearly impossible to find now and nobody is doing a full reproduction I decided if I can make 2 good sections out of the scrap I started with it would be beneficial to have 1 spare and it's all a good learning experience (even if it's an expensive 1), but I want this car to look "right" when done. Otherwise once it's in paint any "faults" will really irk me.. Also still cheaper than the $4,500 NOS 1 I tried to buy on eBay a year or so ago...! So from that perspective I'm still ahead, even though I'm behind, if that makes any sense?

  12. My general rule of thumb is that each panel on a Z costs about $1000 of labour to treat trust / weld in new metal and remove dents etc.. On a Z you have. Bonnet Hatch 2x Doors 2x fenders 1 roof skin 2x rear quarters So that's $9k there... Then you have the unibody: Radiator support $1500 Floor pans $1000 each side. Rails same time... Rusty wheel well $500? Sills $500-$1000 P/side. Accident damage costs more, more pervasive rust that requires extensive fabrication of non available sections, such as firewalls, windscreen pillars etc.. all add extra.. You can see how $20k evaporates fast. I try and do a lot of work on my own car, but rarely satisfied with the level / quality of it. Materials costs + tuition cost a small fortune on its own. Buy the most rust free example you can.
  13. Bit of a shame for you... rare car.
  14. I agree to restore the car to "as new" condition and farm out the work. It will cost a mint.

  20. I wonder how they would feel about a 2002 BMW Turbo with an RB26 swap though?
