  1. There would be a case for the FD2 being a future collectors car, last NA, rev to 9k civic type r. I think if you’re looking at Honda’s in that price range you’d have to consider the FK8 civic type r and dc2 ITR. I think the DC2 Integra Type R would be the best collectors car. All these cars are in the 50k bracket. Though in terms of price growth the DC5 ITR/S is still very cheap and worth a look. Albeit it is not quite as lauded as the DC2.
  2. well he didn’t like that... poor @Reearooni just trying to buy a 280zx.... lol
  3. Hey mate follow this thread if you’re not already, people will post up cars they find. I posted two 280zxs up today
  4. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bertram/cars-vans-utes/1983-nissan-datsun-280zx/1281592445?utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=ios_VIP&utm_medium=social&utm_source=whatsapp Perth WA 280zx, this one was sold less than a year ago in bunbury on gumtree. Was listed for 20k back then.

  6. If only this came out sooner.... I’ve already bought parts! Looks high quality!
  7. They literally have a show called “the next big thing” with magnus walker lol
  8. Auction houses influencing the market and fanning speculation? Sounds like Hagerty is guilty.... they are putting out some very good quality YouTube content of late, I think this would definitely qualify as fanning speculation...
  9. Hey Rudi, Martin my z guy sends them off, I can get the company for you but I’d say it would be cheaper freight wise to send it to the dash doctor. From memory he said it was roughly 1100-1200 for the reskin. surely there’s someone in Sydney who reskins dashes!
  10. Hey nick could you do us a huge favor if you have your horn pad accessible? Just want to know the rough depth measurement from edge of horn pad to the top edge of the ring? Basically how deep the ring is set into the pad? Looks about 3-5mm? Cheers
  11. yes pretty sure the bonnet hinge bolts had those for a screwdriver. The zcardepot kits are just a straight hex bolt. I’m not fussed, but good eye though!
  12. Received a couple of odds and sods from zcardepot. I had to buy some 280zx bits from them so thought I’d get some stuff I know I need for the 240z and save on shipping. bought one of their horn button backing rings, and yellow zinc bolt sets for the fenders and bonnet hinge assy as all my original fasteners were ruined or replaced with incorrect items. All fasteners are rated 8.8 for fenders and 10.9 for hinge assy this is what the rear of my horn button looks like backing ring fixes perfectly onto the steering wheel. I plan to use a combination of liquid nails from the new ring to the metal tab then expanding foam to fill the areas and hold the shape. few close ups of the ring, anyone know why they have the four cutouts there? Or is that just the original shape?
  13. Lol it’s a bit of a beast. Should do the job nicely. I don’t have 15amp power in the shed yet, so I’m planning on grinding down the pin and only using 2 motors for now. Naughty I know
  14. Haven’t worked on the car for two breaks now... had an ERT course all last break and whole family has had a bad cold so been caring for sick kids and wife all break. I have made small progress on stripping the dash in preparation for reskinning. It’s a very rough dash so I’m letting the pros deal with it. also purchased the compressor I will be using for the air tools and spray painting! 4HP 150L Silenced motors 19.35 cfm, all for $1500! I thought it was great value. Motors silenced to 75db which is handy. These are made in China but quality seems very good. I’m yet to test it out though.
