  1. @Millerman I think you bought the shorter ones that suit the 510 more. The longer stalks are for an extra 13-14,000 yen.
  2. Hey guys, I have a few spare items in the garage: - L26 Bottom End P30 (Block, Pistons, Rods, Crankshaft, ...) - L24/L26/L28 Flywheel - Midsump Oil Pan for 6cyl L Series - Fuel Rail from an L28 - Intake Assembly (I believe from an L28) - Exhaust heat shield - Radiator fan from L27 (a few cracks) - 260z duct/heating assembly Feel free to throw an offer as I need the garage cleared out.
  3. In need of a set of hood hinges. Please PM me if you have any.
  4. Hey all, Up for sale is a Marugen Shoukai ZG Kit (Genuine) - 5 piece kit NEW (as per the photo) - Gnose bonnet hinges NEW - Gnose front bumper stay brackets NEW Price: $3,500 FIRM + Shipping Located: Western Sydney These kits are extremely expensive to import now due to shipping costs
  5. The japanese used car market has been interesting as of late. I see a lot of sellers with an asking price of $X, but I haven't seen many actually selling for $X anyway. Has this been the case over the past 2 years or have we actually seen sales of cars for $X? I think prices are dropping for most assets because sellers are just being realistic now and adjusting their expectations as a result.
  6. Clearing out leftover parts in the garage (see here) - https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-seller/Trung/32929463
  7. Hi All, I've been trying to source Gnose headlight covers for my build, but I'm having trouble finding a set. I found these reproduction sets - https://auto-style.jp/productsearch/info/CTA203A1830002/, and I'm curious to know if anyone has purchased a repro set, or has an original set for sale, or knows whether or not the reproduction ones are worth getting. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  8. Hi All, I have a few parts left for sale listed all on gumtree. Trying to clear the garage of the extra parts I have at the moment. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-seller/Trung/32929463 Prices are negotiable and can ship Australia-wide. Just PM me if you're interested in anything.
  9. Hi All, Wondering whether anyone has some advice regarding bolt kits. I've searched the forum and others but there's quite a lot of debate as to whether or not to get the one from Z Car Depot or Ebay or sourcing JIS fasteners. When I purchased my car, the bolts were an assortment of original and home hardware bolts haha so don't have a really good guide to base it off. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey All, Selling an assortment of parts on gumtree - https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-seller/Trung/32929463 as I'm planning to move interstate, so getting rid of all these parts is a must. Throw me an offer for each if you're interested. Prices are negotiable. Message me on Auszcar directly.
  11. I've used https://www.broadyexpress.com.au/about/ in the past for Adl to Syd. Can't remember the price but it was under $2k for a non-runner.
  12. Just a quick update. The design of the kit is roughly 50% complete. However, I sent my car off to the chassis straighteners about a month ago, and they still haven't been able to get around to measuring and straightening my car yet. I'm not exactly sure when I'll be getting it back as they still have a few other customer cars ahead of mine. The joys of delays ...
  13. I don't think that's how they're meant to be. I would be surprised if Nissan made it like that as it doesn't make any design sense. The rectangle-stamping is already notched to accomodate a washer / bolt, so sitting it at an angle serves no real purpose than to piss of anyone with OCD. A good top view shot from an original car would be great to see @gav240z
  14. Don't feel too down. Just take it one step at a time and in no time you'll only have one rust spot left
  15. Rear quarter panel unpicked! Just needs a few light repairs in the usual sections and its good to go. Super pleased with how rust free this section is! I wish my car was the same Still have the rest to unpick though
  16. Starting to unpick this rear quarter section. Was lucky enough to get this entire cut for $1,300 shipped from Japan in Aus!! Has rust in the usual spots but is free from any major damage. Luckily it includes all of the inner panels as well which I'll need for my build. Any sections I don't need, I'm happy to sell off to anyone in need.
  17. Spindle pin defeated after an angle grinder and a 32-ton press.
  18. NOS 240Z Dash. Current bid is at $5,000 AUD! Things are starting to get serious in Datsun land https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/m443849123
  19. Similar to what PB260Z said, you'll be fine with most stands. If you're really worried, the 2,000 lbs / 900 kg ones will suffice. If it helps, I have the Kincrome 907kg one which is not worth buying RRP for, but I purchased it for less than the price of ones at local autoparts stores because I used to work near their outlet centre and was friends with the staff. You can find ones with a similar design for a lot less that will do the same job.
  20. Definitely a project, but to get into a 2 seater Z these days, it is what it is. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/adelaide-cbd/cars-vans-utes/1976-datsun-260z-sports-manual-coupe/1257598901
  21. I personally think the export brace is a nice touch without running into clearance issues. At the moment the Z is only supported by the fender rail. Usually you'd at least have the fender rail and chassis rail, and if clearance permits the firewall as well. If you look at the r35 its got all three
  22. Might be because of the rally rules with respect to body modifications outside of a cage. There are also clearance issues with bits in the engine bay as well hence maybe why they didn't update it perhaps. If you look at the 300zx front tower regions its already a much better design. Would be interesting to see how many Zs have retained their front strut geometry. Quick and dirty method is to use a tape measure and measure the different between the centres of both front struts it should be 913mm for the 240z (might be diff for 260s)
