  1. I think with social distancing many people are picking up hobbies and interests they would not have had time for before and are seeking something to keep them sane. Craft and sewing shops have seen a huge serge in sales. Heck there was even a 8 week wait on lawnmower services in 5 of my local lawnmower repair centres when the corona virus peaked.
  2. Thanks Ryan. At this stage just wanting to get the bay done and looking factory fresh as best I can and then actually enjoy driving the car for some time. There are many other parts of the car that need work but I don't want this sitting in the shed for years and years I want to actually drive it lol. Can't do body work so it's a slow process being able to afford paying for it unfortunately but I want it done properly so best I get a pro on it. Battery tray is fixable but under is toast. Have yet to find any RHD replacement at all. Kfvintage seem to be producing slightly better quality panels so will probably end up going that way for most parts that I can, unfortunately they don't do gaurd repair sections yet so may put that on the back burner who knows. Engine should be done by Christmas so yeah time is running out lol
  3. Was just looking at their site today as I need outer sills and new floor pans, probably chassis rails too. Are the floor pans the same across the 240-260z range or are their some differences?
  4. well dropped the engine off today for a basic rebuild so need to get some panel work happening quick smart. Where is the best place to buy front gaurd rust repair sections from? And will be looking to re zinc some of the metal hardware under bonnet. What's the name of the factory finish for that, and anyone have any recommendations?
  5. Yep keen here
  6. Maybe sold already? I can't get into the add for the details
  7. Thanks. So looking for a 260z specific then really. Narrows it down a bit lol
  8. Thankyou for that. So 240z doors fit then ? Helps when looking for parts, still so much to learn about these cars.
  9. Believe its the later style.
  10. Just removed the auto from my 260z as will be going manual. Worked and shifted fine last time i drove it. Pickup hornsby area. Make an offer.
  11. And the engine and slush box are out. Now to clean up and remove as much from the engine bay as possible and get a refresh on the engine.
  12. Standard rust along the bottom but also some bad rust throughout the area where the door hinges are. Repairable but if i can start with a better frame then thats my prefered route.
  13. Looking for a good condition drivers door for my 260z 2 seater. March 1976 model. Preferably sydney area unless your willing to ship. Thanks.
  14. Ok that's a great starting point thanks
  15. Looking at my options for suspension on my 260z and wanted to hear people's thoughts after looking through some of the many forum posts. The car will be road driven mainly with perhaps the occasional track day once a year or so. The car is getting built to a modified factory performance so no crazy engine transplants etc. I want the car to sit nice and low. Most likely be running 15s max 16s and want the springs to be captive. Looking forward to hearing people's suggestions. Thanks for your time and input. As always this forum is a great wealth of information.
  16. So wheres the best place to purchase these strut tops. Needing my suspension on my 260 2 seater sorted.
  17. So im in the market for springs and shocks for my 260 What was the verdict on these? Do they suit lowered aplications? Cheers.
  18. Just the bottom part of the rad support but with significant rust. Same with battery tray area. Will prob see what the panel guys say and what they are willing to do.
  19. Thinking i should probably look into replacing the suspension whilst the front is apart. Not looking at coilovers but some decent shocks and low springs.
  20. Slowly getting closer to removing the engine and clearing out the emgine bay ready for repairs and paint. Needs some holes fixed under batery tray and bottom of radiator support. Not sure if best to have them custom fixed or look for replacement panels.
