  1. Seems you got lucky as I read sometimes these can be diabolical to get out! Your home made SST (special service tool) looks just the thing. Giving away your age there - when did the last one of those run?
  2. If it is just some limited damage then a custom fix would seem to be the better option.
  3. Maybe they could be encouraged to get a "direct print" Vista View defroster print machine? https://www.frostfighter.com/frost-fighter-new-product-news.htm
  4. OEM NEW Datsun 240Z 260Z 280ZX 1600 Inspection Light Lamp Buy it now : $199 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Datsun-240Z-260Z-280ZX-1600-Inspection-Light-Lamp/114046281984?hash=item1a8db02900:g:WQMAAOSw2QteDpfj (Interesting other items that the seller has for sale!! - not Z car related) Edit : Just to clarify not interesting to me but others may be inclined ;-)
  5. If you do, be aware the front and back bushes are different sizes and the workshop manual states the large fixing bolts on the ends should be tightened / torqued up with the car loaded with the equivalent weight of two small adults sitting in the car as well as a full tank fuel.
  6. IMHO the original rubber type will be better for road driving but you will pay more for them.
  7. I found the documentary of the development of Shelby cars quite interesting. Late in the show there is a reference to the Datsun roadsters and Brock racing. https://www.netflix.com/au/title/81218074
  8. I saw the product Peel Away being used to remove paint off painted bricks on a house and thought it may work for car paint removal. https://www.peelaway.com.au/

    You may find that getting a bracket made up is the better option : https://www.vintageair.com/brackets/?subcat1=Universal&subcat2=Compressor&subcat3=Adapters and Universal Brackets

    The attached file shows the contents of the Nissan Service Bulletin (Nov 1973, Vol.197) and implies Nissan saw the 260Z as just a modified 240Z and this Bulletin outlines the changes Nissan had made by November 1973, no doubt others would have followed.

  11. How handy are you with rust removal or what are you prepared to spend to have all of the rust removed?
  12. It is from the Nissan Service bulletin Vol.197 which outlines the changes from the 240Z introduced in the 260Z - so they may have made some more by 1977. Here is the engine bay wiring loom diagram - may or may not help you.
  13. As PB mentioned, the Black-yellow stripe wires are for the interlock switch.
