  1. Just going to keep the sealed beams at this stage. Car will rarely be driven at night.
  2. Thanks Gill, I've been working through different sections of the car at a time. I stripped down the dash, sent the gauges away for testing/repair, and waiting to find a big enough box to fit the dash into so I can send it to Melb Dash Doctor. I'm media blasting the old chrome off the heater control panel, but might just consider buying a reproduction from the US as someone had chopped out the bottom section to accomodate an aftermaket head unit. All the dash wiring is good, just like to remove old insulation tape and re-wrap with cloth insulation tape (anti-squeak). Just set up my zinc plating workstation in the garage (purchased from Jane kits) It's amazing how a middle aged man can get so exited about restoring bolts, brackets etc (wife rolls eyes)
  3. Thanks guys, will just keep an eye out. One will come along eventually. I don't have the switch at all gill, car was not complete when I bought it. Now that I've started the resto, I'm noticing all the bits thats are missing
  4. Thanks gav, easy to miss this one as they listed it as a speedo? Do you know the difference between the 240 and 260 indicator switch? Cheers
  5. Please let me know if you have one. Thank you
  6. I'm also wanting to remove the vacuum applied chrome from the heater controls. Will take forever peeling off by hand. Did you have any luck??
  7. I've been slowly going through my boxes of parts over the last couple of weeks (thanks covid for the extra time) and restoring/rejuvenating them as I go. Searched every box but indicator switch is missing. I'm sure I'll find many other parts missing along the way. I can get my hands on a 75 260z indicator and combo switch, but Andbir mentioned they are different. Also Gav can you suggest someone in qld that can restore the annodising to parts like horn contact on steering wheel and under bonnet light and so on? Cheers Dyson
  8. Are the 240z and 260z indicator switches the same? Also headlight combination switch too? Thank you
  9. Already done. Thank you
  10. Recommendations on where to buy engine rebuild kits (short engine) for 240Z L24? Pistons, rings, bearings, timing chain kit and so on. zcarsource seems to have thorough kits. Cheers
  11. It's a big mix of rust repairs and crash repairs, probably all done on the cheap in the eighties or early nineties. No aussie compliance plate, but build 114
  12. I'm waiting on some better photos, but the two I've seen so far are promising. Just bought a roof off the bloke and it is spot on...no rust at all. The rear is rough but manageable. Just the usual rusty areas.
  13. Thanks for your feedback Gilltech. I wouldn't be overly keen to fab on the 260Z front end, I'd rather chop out the bits I need to keep the car as original as possible. The front of my 240 is in very poor shape. Just trying to make my old panel beaters job easier for him, fabricating new panels as you know is time consuming which = more expense. Here's a sample of what we have to tackle..............note the very very poor previous repair work.
  14. Looking at purchasing a 260z front cut as my 240z front end needs a lot of work (bare shell only) Are there any key differences I need to be aware of? Frame rails, mounting points, radiator support are they the same? Should I fabricate the 260Z front on or just chop out all the bits I need? All help appreciated
