  1. Hi all, I'm seeking a bunch of standard exhaust engine pipe nuts (see attached pic), between 4-8 depending on availability. If you've upgraded your Zed to extractors you may have some lying around, if so, please get in touch. Thanks, Jeff
  2. That's awesome, thanks! Now, to find some…
  3. Does anyone have a JDM mesh grille, and if so, could they please measure the internal dimensions of the 'diamond' and either post here or PM? I need to get some mesh for a headlight protector on a different type of Datsun, but am pretty sure it would have been based on the Zed type. Thanks very much! Jeff
  4. +1 for using the OEM bolts where available, also try Nissan if you can get part numbers, sometimes it's surprising what they still have. Be aware though, many are sold in packs of 10 (or even more) and even if you want one bolt, in most instances you'll need to buy the whole pack. Failing that, I've bought JNS and always been very happy with them: https://www.jnsfasteners.com.au/ A thread file and / or thread repair kit is a good investment too, many fasteners can be brought back to life if they have minor thread damage.

  5. Here's some more 'series one-ness': https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/datsun/240z/
  6. Hi folks, This isn't my car, but a long-ish build thread I came across recently that seems relevant here. While I wouldn't do everything the same as this guy, he's definitely having some fun with the car. But it got me wondering, how would Zed people here feel about it…? https://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/build-projects-and-project-cars/1973-datsun-240z-budget-build-or-something/62569/page1/ Discuss Jeff
  7. Not currently Gav, but it's on the must-do list. Whatever I end up with will need to be custom made, original works type would be rare-as nowadays, plus, I have Webers instead of Solexes so the mountings will be different. Jeff
  8. Faced with a similar situation l went for the short Unifilter foam socks, they work nicely. jeff
  9. That was an interesting read, thanks for posting. It's so satisfying to finally solve a puzzle like this, hope you can now enjoy many happy drives. One of the (few) upsides of lockdowns / COVID etc, is the amount of jobs completed on cars while tucked away at home. Jeff
  10. This scheme (not actually "rego") has been well and truly taken advantage of by the few, spoiling it for the rest. Over many years I've seen everything from a Ferrai F40 to white Mitsubishi delivery van on club plates. Mitsubishi van…? WTF! Jeff
  11. Thanks, they are a but a small part of a whole vehicle restoration, or more accurately, resurrection.
  12. The first photo was of a car from Zama, the second is mine. Yes, the seats have been refurbished, they were in very shabby condition beforehand. I'm all for original, but not when it looks like they've been salvaged from a dumpster. From the outside they seem to offer little support compared to a modern rally seat, but I find them super comfy Jeff
